A Cuddle Party® is a non-sexual event with about a one hour workshop on boundaries and communication followed by 2-2 ½ hours (depending on the event) of platonic Cuddle Time. You are, of course, free to leave at any time.
You never have to cuddle with anyone you don’t want to, ever. This is a way to experience platonic touch in a controlled environment.
Here is more on what Cuddle Parties are about: http://www.cuddleparty.com/
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)
- Freedom to be yourself
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. It is a safe place to learn about you as well as to learn new skills in communication.
I am a Cuddle Facilitator in training. I am having my first event on November 5, 2016 at a location in Carrollton. You will get the address once your ticket is purchased. The event is from 6:00pm to 9:30pm. There are a limited number of tickets sold, so please order your tickets as soon as you are sure you are coming.
Here are some things you should know.
Tickets are $20. If finances are going to prevent you from coming, please let me know. I believe that everyone should be able to benefit from Cuddle Party®, so arrangements can be made for a work exchange (We could use help with set-up, clean up, etc.)
You will not be permitted to enter once the workshop has begun. The reason for this is because 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. If you are running late, please call/text Bri at 817-307-7668. We will want to know so we can keep you in mind.
The doors will open up 30 minutes before the event starts to allow you time to change into your pajamas. On Pajamas, please think comfy, not sexy. Drawstrings, not lace.
Being that this is a Non-sexual event please be mindful of your conversations. Many people have a hard time with this subject and come to Cuddle Parties specifically because they are non-sexual and they feel safe here. You never know what someone else has experienced or endured in their life. Please be respectful and honor our non-sexual atmosphere.
Some people are already comfortable with touch and can’t wait to be in a place where that’s okay. 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 and simply enjoying a relaxing, cozy evening with other cuddly souls.
There will be some yummy snacks there, but more are always welcome. If you wish, you can bring a snack to share, especially if there is something you really enjoy and would like to share with others. There will be filtered water there as well as ice, but if you prefer something else to drink (non-alcoholic) please feel free to bring it.
Due to some guests having sensitivities to fragrances, please be clean, and as scent-free as possible. No oils or perfumes, please.
I look forward to seeing you all and experiencing this journey. Please let me know if there are any questions you may have. I am always available by text at 817-307-7668.
