Do you feel safe to set boundaries, in general? About touch?

I am comfortable with being authentically me. Setting boundaries and expectations, for me, is simply a part of being authentic. And setting boundaries around touch ( or just about anything ) is, generally, a fairly easy proposition. When I say NO, I am simply reporting MY current truth -- it is not personal. And, even if I am a "NO" one moment, I could be a "YES" in the next. I know this about myself -- and I suspect this is true of others. I see the world from an abundance perspective -- so hearing another person's NO is also easy and welcomed. After all, the world ( and the workshop room ), is full of people. I am always happy to receive another person's NO. This tells me what their truth is -- in the moment. My being open to hearing someone else's truth, helps us both feel safe. They feel safe because they are being heard and respected. I feel safe because I have information about them, that I can honor, and use to know how to best relate to them. It's a win-win. Yay!

Do you enjoy non-sexual intimacy, as long as you know your boundaries will be respected?

I enjoy intimacy, period. And I only enjoy it, if I know that my boundaries will be respected. Of course, I practice setting my boundaries in a gentle, loving, often humorous way. :-) Having boundaries doesn't mean you have to be mean. Cuddle Party provides a framework ( a different culture ) where I know that it is safe to say NO because I know that in the Cuddle Party framework -- being authentic -- is encouraged.

Do you want to feel connected to a community of fun and respectful people?

Yes!!!!!!!! And, I do.
