A Sensual Snuggle Party is a sweet sensual touch based event where we gather to connect, cuddle, massage, play, laugh, cry, share intimacy, vulnerability or whatever else spontaneously arises. It’s a drug and alcohol-free space where we can relax and connect with other humans who are seeking touch based connection. This is a space to practice expressing what feels good and what doesn’t, asking to get your needs met, setting boundaries, and perhaps even overcoming rejection. Many of us are longing for more touch, connection, community, pleasure, validation, and delight in our lives. Conversation is a wonderful way to connect with other people, but some of us crave physical connection as well. The body’s bliss hormone, Oxytocin, is released by nurturing, welcome, consensual touch and is essential for the well-being of your body, your heart, and your spirit. Your nervous system, blood pressure, and emotional health all benefit from healthy, heart-full touch! Safe touch enhances our ability to connect with and trust people, our capacity to respect and care for ourselves, our creativity, and our sense of safety, comfort, and belonging. In today’s high-tech low-touch society, we especially crave the authentic connection, deep listening, and nurturing touch that we were born to receive. Snuggling is a great way to get that kind of touch. And sometimes… you know… you want to do more than snuggle. Our Agreements: 1) Everyone keeps their pants on Our intention is that this is a time and place for sensuality not sexuality. The object is to enjoy one another without trying to build our sensual/sexual energy toward orgasm. It’s not about trying to get someone off, it’s about enjoying being aroused, delighted and connected and letting that be enough. And… If you find yourself wanting more than that, great! We encourage you to enjoy that wanting. Delight in being turned on. Sit with it. Savor it for the whole party. But don’t act on it there. 2) We take care of ourselves and each other Don’t do anything you don’t want to do. Do (and ask for) what you want. Accept yummy offers. Check in with yourself and others regularly.Each person brings their own safety. And we all look out for each other 3) Always ask for and receive verbal consent Say yes, to what you want and feels good. Say no to what you don’t want and doesn’t feel good. If you are not hearing a “Hell yes!” then it’s a “No.” It’s okay to change your mind at any time, for any reason. 4) Everything is an experiment and it is OK to be uncomfortable (as long as we are safe) Trying something new is sometimes uncomfortable. You don’t have to know what you are going to want ahead of time. You can change your mind as many times as you want. Follow your authentic “yes” and authentic “no” in each moment; celebrate others doing the same. The only way to grow is to get out of our comfort zone. 5) Confidentiality We respect each other’s privacy and hold in confidence everything that is shared and done at this event. 6) Enjoyment Sensual experience is beautiful, natural, and healthy ~ Embrace it! Celebrate it! Enjoy it!
