Important Information for this Cuddle Party™ Hybrid

SCENTS -

Please be considerate about scents. We are going to be really close to others. Consider that before eating garlic (as an example), smoking, and wearing perfume. Many people are very sensitive or have allergies to scents and chemicals. It's called MCS (Multiple Chemical Sensitivity, it is a medical condition.) and it is more common than ever before. We are in an enclosed space with a lot of people and scents can overpower the space quickly. Thank you for your understanding in this matter.

ALLERGIES AND OTHER CONSIDERATIONS -

Note that this location does have a small dog and 2 cats on site. They will be free roaming during this event. The dog will bark when you arrive but is great shortly after. He's like a 2 year old wanting attention. If you are sensitive and need to take medication, please make arrangements.

My home does require the use of stairs and parking may be quite a ways from my residence. Please consider these when deciding to attend. I can help you find a Cuddle Party that is more accessible. Please reach out to me at 619-517-7153 or cuddlemichelle@gmail.com.

COMFORT -

I ask that you bring pillows, blankets, stuffed animals...whatever makes you more comfortable.

PJ's -

Rule #1 of Cuddle Party™ is clothes stay on the entire time so wear comfortable clothes, PJs or sweats are ideal, for cuddling. Think “more flannel, less lace”. You can change here if you need to.

SNACKS -

You are welcome to bring a snack to share and whatever you want to drink (no alcohol). There will be water available and some snacks provided.

TICKETS -

We have limited space and ticket sales will end once we have reached the max number of people. Tickets are non-refundable (we are holding a space for you, if you don't show that keeps someone else from attending). The tickets are refunded if the event has to be canceled due to weather or other unforeseen reasons.

LOCATION AND PARKING -

Exact location will be disclosed with paid ticket. This location requires the use of stairs. We are on the transit line but buses don't run on Sundays. If you'd like to attend future events and public transportation is important to your ability to join us, please reach out and let Michelle know. Call or text Michelle at 619-517-7153 or email cuddlemichelle@gmail.com.

PROMPTNESS -

PLEASE BE ON TIME Absolutely no admittance after the Workshop has begun, in this case 3:30. This is why I request that you aim to arrive at 3pm. If you find you are running late, please call or text Michelle at 619-517-7153 . Doors open at 3:00. Be sure and arrive early to allow yourself time to change into your pajamas if you need to.

You are, of course, free to leave at any time but everyone attending has to be there from the start so we all have the same agreements and understandings. This creates a safe place where everyone hears the same rules and understands what is expected.

So those are the basics! Here are some more details...

What is a Cuddle Party™?

A Cuddle Party™ includes a 45 minute workshop on consent, boundaries and communication followed by 2 - 2 1/2 hours of platonic cuddle time. You never have to cuddle with anyone you don't want to, ever. They are a wonderful way to experience platonic touch in a controlled environment.

Here is a short video on what Cuddle Parties are about:

http://youtu.be/E7uKK7u-vsc

Cuddle Party™ is led by trained and certified Cuddle Party™ facilitators. The facilitator’s job is to guide you into those skills gently and easily, in a fun, safe and light hearted way. We welcome you and create an atmosphere of respect, and remain available for questions and support.

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

* Possibly an Oxytocin boost (depending on if you cuddle).

Wiki on Oxytocin

Video on the benefits of Oxytocin.

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

Some people are already comfortable with touch and can’t wait to be in a place where that’s OK. Others are not even sure they want any touch at all, but come to explore some communication skills. Others are just curious about what it might be like. Whatever your reasons, a Cuddle Party™ is a great playground for discovering more about yourself, for exploring new ways of connecting with others, or simply enjoying a relaxing, cozy afternoon with other cuddly souls.

People of all genders, sexual orientations, and relationship styles are welcome. :)

Note that there may not public transportation available to this event. Parking is on premises. Contact me if you need more info.

Please reach out to me if you have any questions. I look forward to meeting you! ~ Michelle


Your Facilitator: Michelle Renee

Her vision for this new Cuddle Party Hybrid is to bring her previous experience facilitating Sex Geekdom discussion groups to the warmth and safety of Cuddle Party. Michelle is a sex educator at heart and it's always a topic of discussion no matter where she goes. Trying to control the topic from entering Cuddle Party is not something she is keen on AND she realizes that it's important that the attendees understand topics may go in that direction. Hence, this event will not be advertised to the general public through CuddleParty.com. To learn more about Sex Geekdom, go to SexGeekdom.com
