~~WHAT IS A CUDDLE PARTY!?~~

Cuddle Party is a 3 hour 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 friends from the community.

Cuddle Party is a formal, non-sexual event. It is a holistic, social environment, that attracts fascinating people from all walks of life. It provides a special and unique opportunity for connection, learning and growth.

You can come to a Cuddle Party to meet new people, to enjoy amazing conversations, to touch, to be touched, to have fun, to practice asking for what you want, to practice saying "no" to what you don't want -- all in a setting structured to be a safe place for exploration and enjoyment. Shucks, you can even come to a Cuddle Party just to cuddle!

~~BENEFITS OF ATTENDING~~

Nurturing and consensual loving touch is good for maintaining healthy blood pressure, a strong nervous system and a balanced emotional health. One's ability to connect with and develop greater trust in others is emphasized during the group exchanges during the Cuddle Party. Self-care is a cornerstone of Cuddle Party experience.

Cuddle Party lets you:

Learn clear and easy ways to communicate

Set limits simply and straightforwardly

Give and receive enjoyable non-sexual touch in a safe setting, where your boundaries are respected.

At a Cuddle Party you gain:

Clarity and confidence

Boundary and communication skills

Comfort, support and encouragement

The secrets to welcome, relaxed, non-sexual touch

The skills you learn at Cuddle Party translate into every day life, right from the start. When boundaries and consent are clear, every relationship is easier.

~~WHAT WILL THE EVENING LOOK LIKE?~~

We open with a Welcome Circle - about 1 hour for everyone to introduce themselves, to go over the 11 cuddle party rules, and to participate in a few ice-breaker exercises to help everyone get comfortable. We teach communication and boundary skills in ways that are lighthearted and fun.

Then we open up for 'free-style' cuddling. You have plenty of time to relax, share a hug, give or recieve a back rub, have a conversation, snuggle up with friends new and old, draw, journal, laugh, practice saying 'No', or just unwind after a long day.

Typically, people enjoy foot-rubs, back rubs, spooning, nuzzling, and just generally snuggling up together. Some people like to settle in for a period of time, others like to try shorter times with a variety of people.

At the end, we close with a short closing circle.

~~WHO ATTENDS?~~

People of all ages (18+), genders, sexual orientations, body shapes/sizes/abilities, cultural backgrounds, and relationship statuses are welcome to attend! New people are encouraged to join.

If you are in a relationship, we ask that you check in with yourself and/or your partner(s) to ensure that attending the Cuddle Party falls within your relationship agreements before attending. :)

We ask that you come with a thoughtful and open mind; A fun-loving, compassionate, and non-judgmental attitude; And a willingness to act with integrity in a conscious and mindful way.
