Event description

Description

Cuddle Party is a social event set up to allow people to experiment and explore intimacy, affection and touch, but in a non sexual, safe and structured environment. If you just love the thought of more cuddles in your life - great! Come along, it’s a great space to experience them. If you’re wanting to learn about these things and perhaps have experiences that make them difficult for you, Cuddle Party is designed to help support you too. Everything is entirely voluntary and consent based, and you will probably learn a lot about communication, boundaries and how to feel comfortable saying yes, or no. You are more than welcome to just come along and watch to see how it all works and not cuddle anyone if that's right for you.

We welcome people of all genders and sexualities.

This event will be held at a private residence, and full location details will provided to attendees one week before the event.

Venue accessibility: there are a few short stairs to the entrance, which may be able to be navigated with a ramp, although there is grass opposite one of them, feel free to contact Catriona to discuss. Unfortunately this venue is a private residence and does not have an accessible toilet.

If you would like to attend and have financial concerns. please contact Catriona at cuddleparty.catriona@gmail.com and we can discuss options for attending.


From the Cuddle Party website:

“It’s about compassion, affection and touch. We humans need touch and affection. It’s no longer a question. Nurturing, welcome consensual touch is good for you. Good for your body, heart and spirit. Good for your blood pressure, your nervous system, your emotional health, your ability to connect with and trust people, your ability to respect and care for yourself, your creativity, sense of safety and comfort and belonging. Infants who are deprived of touch fail to thrive; we never outgrow the need.” - from www.cuddleparty.com.


If you have any questions about how a Cuddle Party works or would just like to have a full understanding in advance, the FAQ on the website is quite comprehensive -http://www.cuddleparty.com/faq/. There’s plenty of other information all through the Cuddle Party the website if you’re curious.


Things you need to know before attending:

~ This is a non sexual, drug and alcohol free event. These things don’t help us create an environment of safety for everyone, so we don’t include them in this space.

~ You must be 18 or over to attend, for legal and safety reasons. If you know someone who would like to experience a Cuddle Party and is younger than that, contact me on cuddleparty.catriona@gmail.com, and I can put together an event that is specifically set up to allow younger people to attend.

~ It’s important to arrive on time so that we can get everyone on the same page about the rules. This is what helps people feel safe, so unfortunately if you are late you might not be allowed in. For this event, that means arriving at 6:30, 6:45 or a little bit before so you have time to settle in for a 7 pm start.

~ Arriving clean and freshly showered is always a good idea, as it makes it easier for people to say yes to cuddles.

~ Perfume and strong deodorants or fragranced skin care products can set off allergies for other participants and are not encouraged. .

~ Clothing wise, it’s best to think comfortable, clean, pyjama type attire. Your actual pyjamas are perfect. If you have animals then dander free also helps for allergy free cuddles.

~ For people who experience depression or highs and lows, it’s worth knowing that this event can help create a big rush of oxytocin and serotonin. This might be a really positive experience that continues well afterwards, or it might mean that you experience a bit of a down or flat period afterwards if your supplies get depleted. If you are worried about this, we do discuss how to support yourself if necessary. This is included here primarily for people who know themselves to be sensitive to this and who would like to plan to care for themselves beforehand just in case. Many people don’t experience it at all, and it's most likely that you won't have to worry about it. Catriona is also very happy to answer any questions you might have about this in advance.


~ Your favourite teddy bear or cushion is totally welcome.
