Alaska says a year ago, she started a cuddling business
to help those suffering from PTSD, anxiety, and depression. The former real estate agent says that recently, she changed the focus of the website to be a place not only for people who need cuddles to reach out to cuddlers, but also to serve as a dating website.

“I switched the site from being a service because I was worried about two things: the liability, and because a lot of the people that were calling were asking to date the cuddlers, and that wasn’t allowed. There are a lot of rules,” Alaska tells Dr. Phil on Wednesday’s episode
. “I switched it over to a dating site, and I’ve just given the people what they were asking for.”
Alaska says she then started using her own pictures as a way to market the website.
“These are sexually provocative pictures, right?” Dr. Phil asks.
“I think I look sexy, yes. But I don’t think I look like I’m about to have sex,” Alaska says. “There’s a difference.” WATCH: 'These Photos Destroyed Me,' Says Man Of Wife’s Pictures She’s Using To Market Her Website
