Snuggle Party

Snuggle Party

There is vast literature of the benefits of hugging and yet we are a touch-deprived society. We are afraid to touch, afraid to ask for touch and yet afraid to ask or reach out for the touch we need.

A cuddle party is a workshop for adult participants on the art of consensual and boundary-appropriate touch. The premise of cuddle parties is the recognition of “need to be held” is very close to and equally vital as more conventionally accepted human needs like thirst, hunger, and sex.
