Event description

Description

Start the NEW YEAR with connection, SNUGGLES, and calm fun!!!

This is a special event that is fully donation based- $2-$22 sliding scale, no one turned away. Please sign up on this page so we know how many people to expect. Bring a snack, bring a friend, bring your 2020 self!

We highly recomend you wear a onesie if you've got one (I often see used ones at thrift stores for $4-6)- other pajamas are welcome.

This event will be more casual than most of our club events. If you have not attended our events PLEASE read the rules below. We will not have an open or clossing circle; this is a casual event.

This is a non-sexual touch based event that invites participants to explore platonic intimacy with like-minded people in an environment that upholds personal boundaries and respect through a supportive framework of mutual agreements that maximize safety and create a space of easy openness and compassionate connection.

At this event we have the chance to normalize touch and intimacy with clear boundaries; this is a space for respectful, consent-based touch. We welcome people of all backgrounds, genders, ethnicities, economic statuses, races, spiritual or religious beliefs, sizes, and ages (children welcome; parents/guardians must keep your eyes on your children and be responsible for them).


OUR RULES OF CUDDLING

  1. Clothes [ONSIES] stay on for the whole event.

  2. You do not have to touch anyone or let anyone touch you.

  3. You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. Please be specific in your requests.

  4. If you feel a yes, say YES. If you feel a no, say NO. If you’re a maybe, say NO. You can always change your mind.

  5. Get your facilitator or assistant if you have a question or concern, or if you need assistance with anything during the event.

  6. Talking, laughter, silence, silliness, stillness, and crying are welcome.


WHY CUDDLE?

Touch is a basic human need, and many of us do not get enough; most people don’t even know they are missing touch, or have a way to ask for touch without sexualizing it. We believe deeply in the power of touch, and the importance of communication and consent in creating a safe space for touch.


CUDDLING WITH STRANGERS

Cuddling with strangers sounds weird or scary to most people. “Will I like it?” “What if someone wants to touch me and I don’t want to?” “What if I say yes and it’s not what I want?” “What if I really want to touch someone and they say no?” These are all normal questions. The answer is that this is a space created to ask for exactly what you want, and receive NOTHING you don’t want. Many people start out nervous at a cuddle event. Most are really, really glad they came.


WHAT TO BRING: personal water bottle and snacks to share, blankets, pillows, anything else cuddly, a friend, a date – whatever cuddle accessories you like! The only thing that you are required to bring is a clean and sober you.


We take individual and group safety seriously! if you experience, see, or know that one of our participants is not safe to be at a touch based event we want to know about it. We are committed to doing our best to create a safe environment which means that if someone is causing harm (physical or mental) that person is not welcome here (this includes harm that takes place outside of our events). We stand behind survivors and know that some of our participants are here to heal from touch based trauma.
