Cuddling in June

"Cuddling makes every cell in my body SMILE for days"  Jodie (Denver Cuddle-tastics Organizer)

ALL AGES WELCOME (age 18+)~~~this is an adult event, no kids.

This event is advertised on multiple sites, not just this meetup group, so there will be other attendees than those who RSVP via this group.  There is always a balanced mix of both genders!

For any questions you can email or call me, Jodie, at[masked] or Suzann at[masked]-0968.

ARRIVE ON TIME: Once we begin the Welcome Circle and orientation, sorry, we can let no one enter late. This creates comfort and safety by knowing that everyone is on the same page about rules and expectations.

COST: $10/person, I will collect payment at the door.  There will be some ice breaker activities and a review of the Rules in the first 30-40 min, at the end of it, if you feel like this is not for you and/or you would like to leave, you will receive a refund.

WHAT TO WEAR: Pajamas – nothing too risqué. Think more comfy than sexy. (More drawstrings, less lace! No shorts.)  There's a place to change when you arrive.

WHAT TO BRING: Sorry, no liquor folks. Juice or sparkling cider is always welcome. A pillow or stuffed animal if you like. Otherwise, just bring your smiling self.

STICK TO THE RULES:

Pajamas stay on the whole time.

You don’t have to cuddle anyone at a Cuddle Party, ever.

You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. (Be as specific in your request as you can.)

If you’re a yes, say YES. If you’re a no, say NO.

If you’re a maybe, say NO.

You are encouraged to change your mind.

Respect your relationship agreements and communicate with your partner.

Get your Cuddle Party Facilitator or the Cuddle Assistant if you have a question or concern or need assistance with anything during the Cuddle Party.

Tears and laughter are both welcome.

Respect people’s privacy when sharing about Cuddle Parties.

Keep the Cuddle space tidy

This is an opportunity to discover greater communication skills in a relaxed setting that encourages us to practice asking for 100% of what we want 100% of the time. We learn to be comfortable with hearing NO for an answer and then to negotiate from there.

    Great time opening up to others. It was good being around people with the intention only to explore touch and not sex. It was a great way to explore the love I have for others and not feel the fear of connection.

    If you enjoy hugging/cuddling, if you are yearning to connect with others and share positive energy thru touch then I would recommend giving this meetup a try. Also if you want to practice asking for what you want and saying no this is a safe place to do just that :)

    It was freakin' outstanding! I was a little leery at first, honestly, I don't know any of these people, but they welcomed me with open arms (no pun intended). After the first time I felt comfortable enough to ask someone else to cuddle which I thought was way cool. I also realized something else as well. It's not only the human touch we seek, but human interaction. Which for me was even better. What also struck me is that I was not the only individual seeking hugs which is cool too. I am so looking forward to the next meet up that I just signed up for the next one in July.

    An incredible experience meeting so many people just like me that have so much to offer one another. There are so many people in the world that have the gift of touch and they ALL met at Suzann's house tonight.

    a lady friend of mine might join me. It will be a last minute decision if she gets some other tasks accomplished or not.

    My internet is out at home, so I'm at the library as I do not have a smart phone, and checking my email. Lots of messages! If you need to contact me today, best text or call me. [masked] See you all at 5p!

    I am updating my RSVP. I had a guest coming with me and she can't make it so it will just be me coming. So there is a spot open for whoever is on the waiting list. Thanks,
    Chris

  • Julia H.

    Jodie, then why wasn't I put on the waiting list back on the 26 or 27th when RSVP?

    1 · June 17

    • Jodie

      Gosh, Julia, I have no idea. Sometimes there are glitches w/meetup.com that happen. I remember, several months ago, someone contacted me because they weren't able to join the group. It got resolved but that person had to connect with Meetup's customer service to get it done. So weird things do happen! I would say if you ever notice anything strange happen to your RSVP, in the future, to contact Meetup's customer service and they will assist you.

  • Julia H.

    I put myself on the waiting list but I'm absolutely positive that I RSVP as soon as the the meet up was posted. So surprised to see that I'm not on the list.

      Hi Julia. The June cuddle party probably showed up in your email right after you became a member and it likely appeared that it was just posted. However, I posted it on the meetup page back in May and by May 27, 22 members had signed up and that's when I put a cap on the # of attendees, which we've recently started doing in order to not be too crowded in the area we'll be occupying. There's a little less than a week until we meet, and likely some people will change their RSVP to "no" and that will allow the waitlist people to attend, in the order that they signed up. Its happened 2x in the past week! The other option is to sign up for the July or August meetup, which currently hasn't reached it max limit yet. Either way, look forward to meeting you!

    Changed my RSVP because I won't be back from hot springs yet. have fun all!

    • Jodie

      Thanks for updating your RSVP! Someone contacted me last week to be on the waiting list who usually signs up thru Eventbrite but for some reason that website isn't working properly. So the next person who changes their RSVP to "no", I'll add a +1 to my RSVP to account for this person.

      1 · June 12

  • Jodie

    I just noticed that there were no limits on attendees, so I changed it and put a limit on 22. Lately we've been limiting it to 20 but I neglected to do that for June, oops. So there will be a waitlist for others in case some RSVP's get changed to "No", which invariably happens. So for the 22 already signed up, if your plans change and you aren't able to make it, please change your RSVP to "No", as soon as you're aware of it, that way it opens up space for someone who is able to attend. Thanks!
