Parties Invite Cuddling Up to Strangers

Need a hug?

In increasingly stressful times, people are turning to a new method of relaxation: cuddle parties. Cuddle parties, conceived five years ago, are designed to bring clean, safe and welcomed affection to event participants.

The brainchild of two relationship coaches, cuddle parties bring people together for strictly non-sexual hugging, stroking, spooning and massaging. The fee to attend a cuddle party event is $30. All touching must be sanctioned by the other guests.
