Our May cuddle was a yummy gathering of humanity. MCM members, new and old, attended and enjoyed our expanded 2.5 hour time slot. We do about 5 platonic cuddles at 20 minutes each.
Let's gather again for soothing sessions of spooning and forking and embracing and caressing. Bring your friends. Time to meet new men and reunite with the regulars. Our goal is to have a vigorous turnout of 15 - 20 (or 30), but our cuddle goes on no matter what. RSVP now. Why wait?
We close the evening with our secret weapon: THE DONUT HOLE OF LOVE. About 3-4 men stand in the middle. They are surrounded by the outer group donut made up of the other men. Then the magic begins. Ahh. Feeling is believing.
Our group cuddles are scheduled every other month: Jan, Mar, May, July, Sept, Nov. (In the future we will adjust schedule to include JUNE for a pride cuddle, but not this year.) *Please pencil us into your calendar now for the whole year so you don't miss out. With therapeutic cuddling I find the more often you attend, the richer your experience is. And you might find a cuddle buddy to partner with outside the group.
EARLY BIRD RSVPs are $15. That goes up to the regular $20 on June 20. Our events can sell out.
BRING A GUEST PERK. If you let Dwight know you're bringing a new guest to a group cuddle and they pay -- you will be able to attend for free.*
** WHAT TO BRING
As usual, remember to bring a small blanket to lie on and a small pillow. Dress for comfortable cudding and lying down.
If you're driving, there is usually free street parking on Byron. If taking public, we're close to the Irving Park 80 bus, or the Brown Line stop at Irving. RSVP online and you can pay by credit card.
** WHAT TO REMEMBER
Our cuddling is by mutual consent and permission. Our focus is platonic. The intent is to nurture rather than arouse. We are changing the way that men, especially gay men, meet. Cuddling is not based on physical attraction but based on the universal need to hold and be held.
