so, how long has this place been in business? one would think that it would have gone outta business years ago due to the nature of their establishment. so why bust it now?

The statement says an investigation into a 2008 sexual assault of a 5-year-old Madison girl on the city's east side led Madison police, state agents and federal agents to the Rising Sun at 117 W. Main St.

It was definitely there in the early 70s.

Heh, reminds me of a recent episode of Bored to Death where he's hired to erase the hard drive at an S&M palace before it gets busted. Must be some folks what worked around the capitol be all a quakin'.

It's been around since the 70s. Barbara Hoffman worked there (and other "massage'" parlors) part-time.

A few years ago an episode of Intervention (on A&E) was about Kristen, a Madison heroin-addicted prostitute. She worked at Rising Sun and got fired because of the documentary. She had a toddler--very sad. She went to rehab but left and was back at it shortly thereafter.
