About Me

May 2015 Update - I will be moving soon and giving up my cuddle room space. I will not host Cuddle Parties until I have a larger apartment, probably not until 2017. I do not maintain a mailing list. If you want to receive notice when I'm hosting again, join the NYC Cuddle Party Meetup group. =============================== Being part of communities is important to me. I'm active with HAI (Human Awareness Institute), More House / Mark Groups, Mensa, several Meetups and now Cuddle Party. Feel free to ask me about any of these groups if you attend a Cuddle Party with me. I am a pet lover and live with 2 friendly, talkative parrots, who may greet you with "'Hi!" as you arrive and "bye-bye" as you depart.


Favorite Cuddle Party Rule

Rule # 2 - You don't have to cuddle anyone at a Cuddle Party, ever. The only thing mandatory at a Cuddle Party is to abide by the Rules of Cuddling. I love the sense of freedom this gives me to be authentic. It also seems to help new Cuddlers dip their toes in the Cuddle Pool, without pressure to immerse.


What I got out of Cuddle Party personally

I've been going to Cuddle Parties since January 2005. In 2007, as I separated from my husband of 16 years, I decided that being more active with Cuddle Parties would be the perfect way to have lots of cuddling in my life, even though I had lost my regular cuddle buddy. Cuddle Parties have been a wonderful way to meet cuddly people, many who have become friends. Cuddle Parties provide an opportunity to give and receive affectionate, non-sexual touch, which is incredibly nurturing and relaxing. It's also a mini-lab in communication, where participants can practice making clear requests, establishing boundaries and honoring the requests and boundaries of the other participants.


Who I am as a Cuddle Party Facilitator / What you'll find at my Cuddle Parties

I love to host parties. What you could expect to find at my Cuddle Parties is a cozy room, with padded floors, soft lights and music, yummy snacks and interesting people. As a Cuddle Party facilitator I am a warm, friendly, welcoming host, that helps participants feel comfortable and taken care of: * by inviting them to share feelings and non-sexual touch, * by demonstrating and practicing expressing desires, * by responding to others requests with clear yes's and no's, * by setting boundaries * and by encouraging participants to stretch in order to fully enjoy the experience.
