What we're about

The group is for those of you who understand the magic and healing power of touch. We gather to cuddle to practice consensual non-sexual touch.

If you are looking for hugs, snuggling, a space to relax, companionship, want to discover what kind of cuddles you like or learn to create boundaries, this group is for you. We start with a circle sharing our intentions and create a safe container by going over the event agreements. We also test our yes and no to make sure our communication is in place for us to have a fun and safe experience.

Our cuddles are a great place to ask for what you want or think you want and haven't been able to explore before.

If you find connecting with people by touch awkward, you have also come to the right place. Why not start with eye gazing or holding someone’s hand; or just having a conversation about how awkward you feel. :)

We look forward to meeting you, and maybe even sharing a cuddle!
