Cuddle Party INC.

Cuddle Party INC. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit charitable organization. Our mission and purpose is to promote and enable empowered consent, choice and nurturing touch. We do this by training and certifying facilitators who produce Cuddle Parties and other related events.

Consent & Boundaries

The skills that make relationships enjoyable are learned. Consent and boundaries, asking for what you want, and saying Yes or No with clarity and kindness.

Nurturing Connection

Human beings of all ages need touch and affection. We never outgrow it. As we re-discover platonic touch and affection, we find connection – and fun!

Touch and Safety

As we learn consent skills, touch can become respectful and emotionally safe. Then we can relax and enjoy it, and experience all its benefits.

Learn The Skills That Make Touch Safe And Enjoyable

We have found, at the thousands of parties we have facilitated, that it is not the cuddling that most people come to learn. It is the boundaries and communication skills that are most appreciated by our participants. Once boundaries, choice and communication become easier, the cuddling happens quite naturally. Our Certified Facilitators create safety by leading the Welcome Circle, which teaches communication and boundary skills and helps everyone get comfortable, and by remaining available for any concerns that may arise.

ONLINE & IN PERSON EVENTS

Cuddle Party® Events are hosted by local people who have gone through a training and certification process. Of course, anyone can invite their friends over to cuddle (We wish more people did), but our Certified Facilitators are trained to teach the participants to make respectful invitations and communicate clear boundaries. Simply put, our Certified Facilitators help a room full of grown-ups in pajamas feel safe and comfortable while learning new skills and enjoying themselves!

How Cuddling Can Help

Our society is suffering from chronic social isolation, loneliness, and stress.

Now I know what I was missing (and often confusing with sexual needs) all those years before I met my husband. It took finding him, before I felt safe enough to ask for a cuddle when I needed one. I’m catching up on years of cuddle-deprivation now.

You continue to impress me and also to open new arenas up for me in regards of my own sexuality and also my love for women and learning to love myself and my body.
