Cuddle Party is a fun, playful workshop on connection and communication that includes an abundance of nurturing and affectionate touch. It is a safe and structured, non-sexual and drug and alcohol-free event. Called a "Party" because it is so much fun!

People may attend a Cuddle Party for a variety of reasons. Many come out of curiosity. Some like to have fun and enjoy a wonderful evening of connecting with like-minded people. Some see a Cuddle Party as a great networking opportunity to look for new friends or a significant other. Some (both men and women alike) come to safely fulfill their need for affection and nurturing touch that may be missing in their everyday life. Some appreciate the learning and personal growth aspect and use the opportunity to improve their social and communication skills (expressing needs, setting boundaries, etc.). Some may explore ways of creating connection and closeness, and play with "touch meditation" or gazing. Some may find a spiritual significance in deeper and more authentic connections with others.

Cuddling can mean feet against feet, leaning against each other, shoulder or feet rubs, caressing, full-body hugs, spooning - it is entirely up to you. You can participate according to your desires and comfort level (it is perfectly ok if you just want to talk and not touch anyone for a while or not at all). You will have a great opportunity to meet and connect with other cuddle-minded people in a safe and relaxing environment.

During the first hour we create the structure and safe space by introducing ourselves, learning about Cuddle Party philosophy and rules (like "Ask before touching anyone"), and by going through several communication and ice-breaker exercises. This is followed by a couple of hours of social cuddling time, and ends with a Closing Circle.

After the Cuddle Party is over, sometimes some people stick around for some conversation and sharing, and/or we may go out for a dinner.

    "I'm a self-professed "touch junkie", which is good considering I'm a Massage Therapist... But within those professional boundaries, I have nobody who touches ME in return, and the lack of non-sexual affection can be very lonely."

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
