Nearly two months earlier, the guys discussed an establishment in Rochester, New York called "The Snuggery". There, customers can pay to snuggle with other people. Since then, Weird Things listener, John D. went to The Snuggery and has made a report of his finding.
He made sure to first state that he had nothing sexual in mind when he made the appointment. When he arrived at the location, he was met outside by the owner where they went over the rules. They headed into the loft and he was allowed to change into the pajamas that he brought and when the "snuggerist" came in, she turned on some strangely ominous instrumental music. They began the spooning and did the obligatory small talk. After a while, the talk died down and silence fell. At this point some things began to "rise" if you get my drift. However, John reports that "the flag was only at half mast". Once the session ended, he gave her the money and they went their separate ways. This is not some type of front for a prostitution ring.
Masonic Hazing Devices
Andrew got a tour through the museum of a Las Vegas magician named David. This guy is a fairly prolific performer so he has a giant collection that took a few hours to get through. Along the way, David did a few tricks for the group and during one, he collapsed a chair that Andrew was sitting upon. Turns out that this is a sort of a "hazing chair" that magicians use on their friends.
While Andrew was doing some research for one of his books, he stumbled upon a catalog full of a ton of Masonic hazing paraphenalia that contains the very chair that collapsed beneath Andrew. You really need to check this catalog out, there are illustrations and everything. CLICK HERE NOW!
