NO thank you. Intimacy is for romance. I'm not touching anyone unless I'm in a close relationship with them.
I love this idea. I love hugging and cuddling, and I agree that all humans need to be touched more (in non-sexual ways). Who put this under "matchmaking" though? That's completely not the point.
What?! This is awesomely creepy! Are we that lonely these days? Check out the rules...
STICK TO THE RULES: No Booze aloud. (Lame) Pajamas stay on the whole time. (Even Lamer) You don窶t have to cuddle anyone at a Cuddle Party, ever. (Umm. Then why go?) You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. (got it) Be as specific in your request as you can. (What request?) If you窶re a yes, say YES. If you窶re a no, say NO. If you窶re a maybe, say NO.You are encouraged to change your mind. Respect your relationship agreements and communicate with your partner. (How do you like to gt your cuddle on?) Get your Cuddle Party Facilitator or the Cuddle Assistant if you have a question or concern or need assistance with anything during the Cuddle Party. Tears and laughter are both welcome. (I am more on the tears side of cuddling... I know we just met but can you just cuddle me while I cry?) Respect people窶s privacy when sharing about Cuddle Parties. (Well, Maybe they shouldn't cuddle and tell!!!) Keep the Cuddle space tidy... (Keep the cuddle tidy?? WTF?)
It's not an orgy unless there's b00ze.
oh my god
Oh.... no. Seriously people.... geez... I mean.... what in the hell????
I'm thinking I should become an official "Cuddle Lifeguard" to organize these things. Sounds like a great idea to meet new people and such.
Except for that whole thing about me not liking strangers or anything new, it's perfect.
What's with all the parade-rainers? This isn't so weird. People do it all the time at raves. Human beings need more non-sexual touching. Touch is therapeutic. Babies who aren't held have been shown to have less than optimal immune systems and such. I see no reason that shouldn't continue to be true into our adulthood.
Short of raves and dancing (salsa, swing, etc), people don't really touch one another just for the sake of it. I would like to be able to feel another adult human being put their arms around me and pull me close and stroke my hair for it's own sake, with no sexual or romantic agenda. Even better if I have a crop of people in one place to choose from. Where does it say the only socially acceptable reasons for showing affection are required to be romantic or sexual in nature?
Poo on that. I like to cuddle. I make a point of having cuddly friends. And don't even get me started on spooning.
I was totally into this concept until I read that it isn't supposed to be "a free-for-all, a pseudo-orgy or a grope-fest." What a shame...
"What a Cuddle Party ISN'T: A free-for-all, a pseudo-orgy or a grope-fest."
This is an entirely strange concept to me. At times, I go out of my way to avoid contact with people; can't imagine seeking out this kind of 'affection'. Maybe it works for some folks--who knows? But I still don't want anyone I don't know touching me--hell, I want strangers stay out of my 'personal space' altogether.
Uh... huh... well, whatever floats your boat. But I think this is kind of creepy, personally. Throw a Cuddle Party!
I'm not easily scared, but this...no words..
Never met a stranger I wanted to cuddle. Am I repressed? I hope so.
This frightens me.
