Autumn Vandiver

I host monthly Platonic Touch Workshops and Practice events (aka Cuddle Parties)* out of my home in Sunnyvale.

I love creating a safe and welcoming space for people to connect and relax together. I’m skillful in the areas of communication, creativity, and empathic connection. I welcome adults of all genders, sexual orientations, body sizes and abilities, cultural backgrounds, and relationship statuses to attend my events.

Some of the things that are particularly special about my events are the attention to details in the physical environment, plenty of cushiony places to cuddle, lots of yummy food from our generous potluck community, and the touches of humor and whimsy that I sprinkle throughout our workshop.

It’s worth noting that tickets to my events often sell out in advance, so please purchase yours sooner rather than later, or be sure to put your name on the waitlist.

*I call my parties Platonic Touch Workshop & Practice events because I have found that the term Cuddle Party can be intimidating to individuals new to the world of platonic touch. It’s important to me that my events appeal to a broad spectrum of people and feel safe for everyone. For those that may be feeling intimidated about attending, I want them to know that one of the foundational rules here is that you never have to touch anyone you don’t want to, ever. In fact, not touching or cuddling is always an available and viable option. I’ve discovered that calling my event a Platonic Touch Workshop & Practice makes this an easier to concept to convey than it is when I call it a Cuddle Party.

Having said that, I get that Platonic Touch Workshop & Practice is a mouthful and may evoke images of people sitting in a classroom taking notes. But it sure does sound like a safe place, doesn’t it? And this is my number one goal for my event…that people feel safe. Still, I invite you to use whatever language fits best for you when you are communicating with others about this event.
