The humility of cuddle parties
In cuddle parties, the people that touch eachother barely know eachother. When a person is physically touched by a person that one does not know, it violates a person's sense of egotistical dominant-territorialism over one's body, such that it facilitates the virtue of humility. Thus, cuddle parties can serve not only as a hedonistic activity, but also as a moral sacrament. The same is true of nudism, in which one's body is looked at by strangers.

Hi there!

New member to this comm here. I went along to my first Cuddle Party yesterday - this was the one organised by Sam Cowan in London in the UK. I don't suppose anybody here was there?

In any case, it was awesome! :D By nature I'm a pretty cuddly/snuggly person but I never really get any hugs in real life. :( Of course, part of that is the way I go about doing things - I don't hug anybody if they're not okay with it, and I generally don't ask. Meaning I never get to hug anybody... so this is a good way to work on my communication skills in that regard. Although, truth be told, I don't really have many real-life friends either, so that could also put a spanner in the works. ;p

Anyway, I really loved it! I do want to go again, since it really was good. Most of my LJ friends think it's creepy though, it seems. :/ Some think it's totally insane.

Anyway, just wanted to introduce myself, say hi, and maybe see if anybody else was at that party. :) If so, I'd love to hear from you. :D

Pride Cuddle Party in Toronto Tomorrow Night - June 23rd
Kick off your Pride weekend with a cuddle! We're having a special QUEER/TRANS + Cuddle Party on Friday June 23rd from 7:00pm to 10:30pm!

All cuddle parties are welcoming environments, but this Pride event will just be extra queer/trans positive, and won't enforce the usual gender-balance policy. Allies welcome, of course!

What a Cuddle Party IS: A structured, safe workshop on boundaries, communication, intimacy and affection. A drug and alcohol-free way to meet fascinating people in a relaxing environment. A laboratory where you can experiment with what makes you feel safe and feel good.

What a Cuddle Party ISN'T: A free-for-all, a pseudo-orgy or a grope-fest.

To read more about Cuddle Party you can check out the main Cuddle Party Website or the wonderful and informative website for Cuddle L.A..

The cost is $25-$35 sliding scale (nobody will be turned away for lack of funds) and the Cuddle Party will be held at the comfortable workshop space at Wonderworks near Harbord and Spadina.

To RSVP please send an email to cuddletoronto@yahoo.ca with your:

A FEW WORDS ABOUT WHY YOU'RE INTERESTED (if this is your first time)

You can also send me an email if you have any questions about Cuddle Party or if you would like to join our mailing list. cuddletoronto@yahoo.ca

May all your cuddles be glorious :D

Just dropping by to say hello
Hi all,

I went to my first cuddle party ever last week & I enjoyed it a lot. It was nice to be able to touch people without having to feel guilty for wanting to touch them, even if it was just a simple pat on the back. We are so alienated from each other & we shouldn't be.

Current Mood: cheerful

I just heard about cuddle parties a week ago, from a friend. I decided almost immediately that Ijust had to go to one. This Thursday I went to my first cuddle party / kuschel party in Berlin, where I live.

It was an amazing three hours, I can't wait for the next party.
