What is a Cuddle Party?

By August 9, 2004

Follow me on:

At first glance a Cuddle Party appears to be a non-sexual orgy setting. At least this is the way I'm understanding this new business venture started up by Reid Mihalko and Marcia Baczynski. They are banking on the idea of bringing people together to share intimacy, affection, and appropriate touching to off balance a society of individuals who have become touch-and-snuggle deprived...

Attire is required, preferably pajamas. There are very specific rules that are enforced to assure the party environment is a safe one. Cuddling party sessions last approximately three hours. And in case you are wondering if this cuddling craze is some new type of healing touch therapy I have noted in the FAQ posted on of the Cuddle Party Web site it states that "Cuddle Parties are not intended as substitutes for therapy."

the people that have this type of problems is the people that have closed their hearts to love and trust, this wont grow, open in a pajama touching party, but in a personal development, and beggining to open to the most closer people in their life as family then to friends and so on..intimacy can grows just with giving and opening the heart, and who has closed the heart , has to work in himherself, before going touching, otherwise the touch becomes only pure physical not emotional..
people iks ready to open themselves to sexuality but letting their hearts close, its possible to touch and dont share. This is possible what will happen at those pajama parties.

I recently attended a cuddle party. It was nothing like I had imagined. It was so much better! Asking and receiving permission for touching and learning to give and receive touch nonsexually in a group of strangers was relaxing and fun! I enjoyed it so much I have decided to become a facilitator. :)

This is great stuff! I should say that as a man involved in so many heavy duty physical activities (martial arts, bodybuilding), I don’t usually get involved in esoteric theory or events. However, to my personal delight I find myself enjoying “touch therapy” activities of a non-sexual type. I’m sorry I waited for so long to do this!

Hi, I’m Laurie how i would love to be held. my pain is so bad, but the loneliness…how i long to have the pain from my head injury and now firbo, cuddled into a quit hush, while being held, protected from the cruel evil of what masters me…THE PAIN…where r these parties at? I am only 42, married 25 years. can couples go?Pain aside, I personnal think we connect far deeper when we slowly cress and cuddle.
now if they woulld teach that at sex ed, we would
have less kids having kids..lol maybe they would find their sweet hearts.
