Yesterday I heard about Cuddle Parties for the first time. I honestly didn't know there was anything like it; it's completely non-sexual in nature and the organisers go out of their way to ensure that if sexual energy does come up, that it's dispersed quickly.

From the What Is Cuddle Party? page:

In a society that is increasingly touch-phobic, many of us aren't getting our Recommended Daily Allowance of welcomed touch. For many people, the only options for getting their touch needs met consist of paying for a massage, having a drunken hookup or getting a pat-down from airport security. Cuddle Parties seek to change that in a way that's conscious, healthy and nutritious.

People come to Cuddle Party events for all sorts of reasons. Some are really touchy-huggy types who can't wait to be in an environment where that's okay. Others are more skittish and aren't even sure that they want to cuddle. Some people come to work on their boundaries with the opposite sex. Some come to make new friends, or to practice their communication skills. Some even come just to take a nap!

Whatever your reasons for coming, Cuddle Party is the perfect playground for exploring new ways of connecting with others and discovering more about yourself. Come to a Cuddle Party, and get back in TOUCH!


They go out of their way to make clear it's not an orgy or anything approaching it. Simply put, you go to the event, change into your pyjamas, then have a darn good time - keeping your pyjamas on all the time, of course. There's no requirement to cuddle and you have to get a verbal "Yes" before touching is allowed.

I wanted to post about it here because I'd never heard of it before and considering the community, I think it's something awesome that needs to be posted. Also, although it seems to be mostly US-based, there's a Cuddle Party in London on April 29th, which I'm planning to go to. Anybody else from the UK? :D
