Connect with great people in a safe and cuddly environment. Cuddle Party is a 3.5 hour connection and communication workshop that focuses on personal boundaries and touch, where cuddlers have an opportunity to practice these skills by cuddling (or not cuddling). It’s a great opportunity to practice asking for what you want, saying no to what you don’t want, and meeting new amazing people! At Cuddle Party you can: Learn useful skills around consent. Satisfy touch needs that aren't being met in your daily life. Experience a community of consent-savvy and interesting individuals. Do nothing and observe if you want! Just being there is participation. Express yourself. Practice making your own authentic choices and build confidence around those choices. Cuddle Party Itinerary (approximate, to give you a feel for the event): 4:30 PM - Doors open 4:30-5:00 PM - Cuddlers arrive, check in, change into snuggly clothes, grab a snack, socialize 5:00PM - Doors locked. If you are not here by 5:00pm and have not called, you will not be able to participate. Please call Robin if you will be a few minutes late. My phone number is[masked]. 5:00-6:15 PM - WELCOME CIRCLE. All attendees must be present for the ENTIRE Welcome Circle to participate. Doors will close at 5:00 PM. If you are not here by that time, then you will not be able to attend the event. The Welcome Circle orients guests to the rules of Cuddle Party and has exercises so we can practice! 6:15-8:15 PM - "OPEN SWIM" time where you can choose to cuddle, socialize, or participate in any group activities or solo activities, like journaling or reading. 8:15-8:30 PM - CLOSING CIRCLE, clean-up and goodbyes. Cuddle Party Etiquette: ARRIVE ON TIME: Once we begin the Welcome Circle and orientation, no one can enter late. This creates comfort and safety by knowing that everyone is on the same page about rules and expectations. WHAT TO WEAR: Comfy clothes, lounge pants, T-shirt, and sweater if you want! Think more comfy than sexy. WHAT TO BRING: No liquor folks. Juice is always welcome and a snack to share (fruit, cheese, crackers, chocolate, etc). A pillow or blanket would be great to make the space even more comfy. I’ll provide comforters, pillows and blankets to lounge on. Otherwise, just bring your smiling self.
