Cuddle Party …. is about communicating, touching (with permission) and having a good time.

We humans need touch and affection. It’s no longer a question. Nurturing, welcome consensual touch is good for you. Good for your body, heart and spirit. Good for your blood pressure, your nervous system, your emotional health. Good for your ability to feel good about yourself and others, your creativity, your sense of safety and comfort and belonging.

We humans need touch that is not about sex.

Wait - IS THERE such a thing?

Of course there is!

Cuddle Party is a movement to reclaim this option in our lives.

My name is Paul Cooperstein and my intention in becoming a certified Cuddle Party Facilitator is to support everybody in bringing more emotional and physical touch into their lives. Life is too short and so many of us can use more safe touch in our lives. People that are single for so many reasons and feeling isolated e.g. divorce, breakups, deaths, and longing for touch, sometimes not even knowing it. The Cuddle Party is a place where it’s safe to touch and hold someone (if you both/all choose to do so) and be touched and held as well. After facilitating several Cuddle Partys I realize that each party can be a place for people to experiment asking for what they want, changing their minds and stopping or asking for something else, for offering to touch someone else in ways that they find comfortable and for practicing saying no as well. Cuddle is not a code word for sex and “Party” is not a code word for drugs and alcohol. Clothes stay on during a Cuddle Party and there is no sex or drugs at a Cuddle Party, ever!

Cuddle Party can be seen as a communication workshop where people learn to ask, say no, change their minds and negotiate. We start our Cuddle Party by going over the 10 Cuddle Party Rules (for example Rules #1 is NO ONE GETS NAKED!!!) and playing some icebreaker games so that people get over any fears they may have had at connecting with a new group of people.

We have a friendly and community oriented group of regulars which has the effect of having new people get over being nervous, pretty quick!! About 20 people usually attend.

Although we don’t gender balance, we do have a strong intention that our numbers are fairly even and it almost always turns out that way. Sometimes we have a few more men, sometimes a few more women. It never works exactly even because frequently a few people either drop out (or join in last minute – IF there’s space)!!! There are usually plenty of men and women!!! No matter what your age, race, gender, spiritual belief system, food preference etc., it’s a great place to make more friends and community or anything in between.  It’s a fun atmosphere where comfort, fun, choice, experimentation and practice are encouraged in an accepting and compassionate community.

If you want to learn and practice better communication skills, or are looking for an alternative to the typical dating or singles scene, you’ll be glad you checked us out!!! Whether you’re married, single, straight, gay, mono, poly etc. you will be glad you attended a Cuddle Party. Ages at our parties range from 20′s to 70′s with the typical bell curve of mostly 30’s-60’s. The more friends you bring with you in your age group, the more people you’ll have your age there (if that’s of concern to you).  Come and have innocent intimacy and fun!!!

We post our Cuddle Parties on MANY sites/lists AND we send out an email to our list FIRST. If you want to have first opportunity to find out about our cuddle parties AND other upcoming events, please e-mail me at cuddlepartypaul@yahoo.com and I’ll add you to our em list.

We usually hold regular Cuddle Parties at least once a month and we are holding Cuddle Parties in Western MA and Connecticut too! Many of our Cuddle Parties are held in a home in Milton that has a dedicated Cuddle Space that comfortably can accommodate 25 people. We e-mail (by hand) confirmation and address after you register and within at least a few days before the actual party. We run a tight ship and the address remains private for your safety!! As a result, we don’t have party crashers nor have we EVER had to ask anyone to leave!!!

We invite you to join with us to create a Cuddle Party where you live. We are happy to facilitate private and public parties across the Northeast.
