So I ran across this article and loved the graphic. Of course remember rule #2 no one is ever required to cuddle at a cuddle party. But for those so inclined I thought well all might have some fun with it. Platonic of course.

    Large party, large cuddles! The atmosphere was full of fun and respect, and it was great to see the newcomers integrate themselves so well. Can't wait for the next one, you guys! And for those who didn't make it, I hope you make it next time!

    Biggest cuddle group ever, and it was a blast!

    This was definitely the largest Salt Lake City Cuddle Party yet and there was so much fun, vibrant energy from the group! Cuddle Party continues to grow in Salt Lake City again confirming that the basic human desire to connect with one another through touch is alive and well here in Utah, too.

    Thanks Pam , it was nice to meet you all guys. And thanks againg for hosting such a fun party.

    We'll have to push back our arrival time to between 6:15 and 6:30. We're driving as fast and safely possible, promise! ;)

  • Garrett

    I'm running late. Running as fast as I can without breaking the sound barrier.

    2 · May 24, 2014

  • Almoustine

    I've decided not to bake today... I hope you all are ok with store bought pumpkin cookies.

    2 · May 24, 2014

    • Bryant

      Cookies sound great. You do more than enough just facilitating these events.

      3 · May 24, 2014

    • Rosana R.

      That's perfect, Pam! Also, just so you know, the car with Jaron, Rachel, sal, and I will be about 15 minutes late.

      May 24, 2014

  • C.J.

    Sorry but I will not be able to make it tonight. Have a blast though and I hope to be at the next one.

    • Almoustine

      It wasn't as spectacular as hoped.. There is one more night of possible viewing but I don't think we are going to get the chance to see it.

      1 · May 24, 2014

    • Bryant

      I looked, but I wasn't able to see anything unfortunately

      May 24, 2014

  • Steve

    Just a reminder to all the newbies for tomorrow night, please be on time! Once the Welcome Circle starts, we absolutely cannot allow anyone to join the Cuddle Party. It's kind of an absolute rule.

    If you find yourself running a bit late and you are afraid you might not make it on time, just give Pam a call, text message, smoke signals, any kind of communication at all to let her know you're on your way and will be there 10 or 15 minutes late.

    The rule about no latecomers is for the safety of the group. The veterans already understand this rule and know why we do it. It will be exciting to meet all the newcomers, and tomorrow night you'll understand this no latecomers rule, too.

    This is going to be a really interesting party... I can already tell :D

    2 · May 23, 2014

  • Hadi

    Hope to see you all tomorrow. Although my cuddle buddy gave up, i'm still trying to see this party, even without cuddling.

    2 · May 23, 2014

    • Bryant

      You can cuddle with anyone at a cuddle party as long as you ask and receive a verbal yes. You don't need to miss out just because your partner couldn't make it... Unless you are in a relationship and that would violate the relationship boundaries of course

      3 · May 23, 2014

    • Steve

      Hadi, don't worry if you can't bring a friend. My best advice is to leave all expectations behind you and just be present with yourself and the others who choose to attend tomorrow night. If you just live in the moment without expectations, you might be surprised at whatever shows up in life! :)

      3 · May 23, 2014

  • Hadi

    Hi guys. My apologies for such a stupid question , but since i'm new and this is gonna be my first cuddle party , what exactly happens there ?

    3 · May 5, 2014

    • Steve

      Another thing that might help you feel more comfortable coming to your first Cuddle Party, Hadi, is that the first part of the evening is a workshop (the Welcome Circle) where we go over the rules of Cuddle Party and go through exercises about how to ask for what you want and respecting boundaries. If at the end of the Welcome Circle you feel like Cuddle Party isn't right for you, or if you might prefer to come back another time, you are welcome to leave at any time. But at least by that point in time, you've met some other attendees and you know how Cuddle Party works.

      3 · May 18, 2014

    • Bryant

      Do note that it is important to be prompt. Once the workshop has started the door won't be answered.

    Do we just wear everyday clothing to this...or pajamas like the web site shows? Do we need to bring anything?

    2 · May 20, 2014

    • Garrett

      T-shirt and shorts is minimum coverage. Or you could wear sweat pants or pajama bottoms if that's more comfortable.

      2 · May 21, 2014

    • Bryant

      Just remember the purpose of cuddle party is to enjoy non-sexual cuddling, and conversation, so other than modesty the clothing guidelines are primarily just to allow you to be comfortable and enhance the physical contact. Some people wear every day clothes, others wear PJ's or sweats. Personally I prefer cuddling up to something soft rather than something rough like jeans, but that's just me.

      5 · May 21, 2014

  • Bryant

    I look forward to meeting you and all of the other new people. The "Bring a friend" is just an optional thing to help the cuddle party grow since it's still pretty new. Many people, myself included, don't know a lot of people outside the cuddle party and just come alone. That's perfectly fine.

    I can't tell if I'm looking forward to attending or anxious about it. It will be nice to just hang out and have some down time. I don't get much of that. Be great to get to know people there better.

    2 · May 20, 2014

    • Almoustine

      Don't be anxious...it's a safe place to just relax, be yourself in the moment and connect with friends in a relaxed fun, friendly environment. It will be nice to see you again

      1 · May 20, 2014

  • Dheera

    I am excited to attend this but could not as I have some plans for long week-end. I look forward for next meet up.

    1 · May 19, 2014

    • Steve

      I'm sorry you can't be at this Cuddle Party, Dheera, but I look forward to meeting you at a future event. Pam is hosting them fairly regularly, so you probably won't have to wait too long for the next one to appear on the Meetup calendar.

    Hello group, Looking forward to meeting you all. I am little quiet and i am trying to get out of my comfort zone some but I am a good listener and enjoy good company. I looking forward to Saturday. :)

    Finally! I'm back on the ground here in Salt Lake City and planning to stay for a few weeks! I really missed everyone at the April party and I'm looking forward to some long overdue cuddles!

    2 · May 18, 2014

    • Ginger

      Woot woot! Missed you :-)

      2 · May 18, 2014

    • Bryant

      Welcome back

      2 · May 19, 2014

  • Garrett

    I just want to add that since you're going to get close to people, its just courteous to shower and use deodorant.

    4 · May 5, 2014

    • Ginger

      So, so important! Thank you Garrett :-D

      2 · May 8, 2014

  • Stephen

    I've been wanting to come but not sure what to expect. Even though I've read the article link. I would like to learn better boundaries.

    3 · May 5, 2014

    • Bryant

      Cuddle party is a place where you can learn boundary setting skills and enjoy non-sexualized cuddling. There's a workshop portion and then the rest of the time is up to the participants to practice the skills and enjoy some non-sexualized cuddling with those that they ask. Everyone must both ask clearly for what they want, and receive a verbal yes before they can proceed. There are rules which the coordinator will go over, and a bouncer to ensure that they are followed, and to protect the safety of the circle.

      2 · May 5, 2014

    • Bryant

      I should add that no one is expected to participate, and if you do participate you don't have to say "yes" to anything. It's perfectly fine to say "no" to everyone. It's even encouraged as an exercise.

      2 · May 5, 2014

  • Rosana R.

    I think most people agree that Saturdays are better as far as not having to worry about work the next day. I work every other weekend, though, so my vote is for Saturday May 10 or 24.

    April 27, 2014

  • Nyla R.

    Any day but May 9th and May 19th. Those two dates I can't move things around.

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.
