Welcome Cuddlers!

This group exists to encourage opportunities for women to experience consensual, non-sexual touch in a welcoming, obligation-free environment.

Nurturing touch is good for you:

"Cuddling...releases chemicals, like oxytocin, in the brain that create a sense of well-being and happiness. Cuddling can also release endorphins, which is the chemical released after a good workout or when you eat chocolate which contributes to that great feeling." Dr. Renee Horowitz

A cuddle meetup has a safe, platonic atmosphere, so that participants are free to explore giving and receiving platonic touch. Though touch is natural, the skills that make it welcome and enjoyable have to be learned. Skills of communication, boundary identification, asking for what you want, and saying ‘Yes’ or ‘No’ with clarity and with kindness.

A goal for this group is to have plenty of cuddle options on the calendar. Something for everyone to choose from. But the only way that goal will happen is if members volunteer to be assistant organizers, and then schedule group events (just ask the organizer to make you an assistant).
