I was inspired by the little sentence at the top left under the croissants.

The Happy Cuddle Club could be the newest exercise spa. Everyone's all about fad diets and 'no pain, no gain' workouts. It's been scientifically proven that hugging and kissing and snuggling burn calories. Why not pay a fee to be hugged, kissed, and snuggled all day. You would be losing weight as well as gaining self esteem.

I'm not sure if it's happy, but it looks like this has become baked. [zen_tom, Aug 12 2005]

       There are two websites with proof, need more?

       A lot depends on with whom.   

       To make it clear, if heroofmight is going to be there, I will not be.

       Looks to me like cuddling doesn't burn many more calories than breathing. But that aside, you're really just proposing whorehouses, and those have been around for a very long time.

       I went to a whore's house once ... and met her mom, then broke up with her ... LUCKILY without spending a lot of cash ... I think this is baked where I live ...

       Lets take a moment and reflect on the fact that one of monkey's "scientific" diet websites is sponsored by McDonalds.

       That's just wrong.   

       Okay, there were a lot of websites about the kissing and snuggling. This wasn't intended to be a place where you go to get sex, just a spa-type club where you pay an annual membership fee and get hugged and petted and pampered. Not only would it burn calories, but your self esteem would rise. I have never seen anyone's self esteem rise from visiting a whorehouse.
And no [heroofmight]s or any other avid woman-haters allowed.. :P

       BillyBoy, lepers leave tips, you know..   

       Is this going to be flat-out, no-holds-barred snuggling? The kind that leaves you with body parts turning blue?

       I actually read about a club doing this sort of thing. Can't remember where. New York? It was called a "cuddle club," and members bring blankies and jammies. Sounds like a lot of Peter Pans who haven't yet discovered their sexuality and aren't looking for it, either.

       //It's been scientifically proven that hugging and kissing and snuggling burn calories.// I'm not sure whether this has been proven, but I do remember a study that showed the importance of cuddling to the social and mental development of young monkeys (and I suppose the inferrence was that this also was the case for us too)

       I personally would not be keen on cuddling, kissing, and hugging other people who are doing so specifically to lose weight.   

       I'll stick to the treadmill.

       Just wipe it down, then you won't stick.
