What we're about
This Group is for people in Perth Western Australia who are interested in official Cuddle Parties (www.cuddleparty.com). Cuddle Party features a safe, supportive space to explore a wide range of nurturing touch and connection experiences. It is explicitly a non-sexual event, and instead is about kindness, affection and fun.
Cuddle Party is a playful social event designed for adults to explore communication, boundaries and affection. You can come to a Cuddle Party to meet new people, to enjoy amazing conversations, to touch, to be touched, to have fun, to practice asking for what you want, to practice saying “no” to what you don’t want — all in a setting structured to be a safe place for exploration and enjoyment. You can even come to a Cuddle Party just to cuddle!
The first hour or so is a communication workshop in which you will learn how to ask for what you want in a way that it feels like a gift. You will learn to choose; say yes and no and even change your mind in a graceful way. This is followed by a couple of hours of free-style cuddling where you get to practice the skills learned in the workshop. You will leave with a greater understanding and connection with YOU, and perhaps a few others who you may have not even met yet.
The Rules of "Cuddling"
The rules are tried and true, and there’s a logic to them that goes deeper than you might think to create a safe, fun environment for people to connect. At a Cuddle Party event the first hour or so includes an explanation of the rules that you can use every day. Intrigued? Come check it out!
ARRIVE ON TIME: Once we begin the Welcome Circle and orientation, sorry, we can let no one enter late. This creates comfort and safety by knowing that everyone is on the same page about rules and expectations.
WHAT TO WEAR: Pyjamas or sweats– nothing too risqué. Think more comfy than sexy. (More drawstrings, less lace! No short-shorts or nighties please.)
WHAT TO BRING: Sorry, no liquor folks. Juice, kombucha or sparkling non-alcoholic cider is always welcome as are veganish treats and snacks to share. Sorry no nuts or dairy, or strong perfumes, for the health, safety and comfort of everyone. A pillow or stuffed animal if you like. Otherwise, just bring your smiling self.
STICK TO THE RULES
Pyjamas stay on the whole time.
You don’t have to touch anyone at a cuddle party, ever.
You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. (Be as specific in your request as you can.)
If you’re a yes, say YES. If you’re a no, say NO.
If you’re a maybe, say NO.
You are encouraged to change your mind.
Respect your relationship agreements and communicate with your partner.
Get your Facilitator or the Assistant if you have a question or concern or need assistance with anything during the event.
Tears and laughter are both welcome.
Respect people’s privacy
