Description

What is a Cuddle Party?Cuddle Party is a 3-4 hours workshop experience where participants engage in communication exercises, explore touch in a non-sexual space, experience personal exploration and intimacy, and have fun with like minded people. What do we do at a Cuddle Party?We do two main things at Cuddle Parties: Enjoy each other's touch. You can come and enjoy giving and receiving caring touch from other people who want to give and receive it.Practice Consent. A major part of Cuddle Parties is learning how to ask for what you want and how to answer requests. Worried? Confused? Don't fret - we will teach, guide and help you practice how to do it. ?Why is Cuddling important?Nurturing and consensual loving touch is good for maintaining a healthy life, a strong nervous system and a balanced emotional state. One’s ability to connect with and develop greater trust in others is emphasized during the group exchanges during Cuddle Parties. Self-care is a cornerstone of the Cuddle Party experience. Is this SEX?!Great question! No. This is a non-sexual event. You have the option of experiencing touch and maybe intimacy if you'd like to - but we steer away from sexual behavior.If you are looking for something sexy, we're all for it! :) just not in this event.
Attendees are welcome to arrive in or change into whatever they deem comfortable - a minimum of knee length pants and tank top. No nudity is allowed.
