I was talking with *E* about this when I discovered not everyone knows about these!!!!

From Wikipedia:
wikipedia wrote:
A Cuddle Party is an event designed to allow people to experience non-sexual group physical intimacy through cuddling.


Cuddle party website

There are lots of pics of mass groups of people cuddling on google images but I decided not to include them. :P

EDIT:
OK I cracked. Happy cuddlers

So what do people think of this? Is it wrong or right or is it just plain weird? Should people hug more?

The cynical side of me thinks that would have been a great way to size up babes. And to let them size me up ;) , especially if spooning. I mean, erections are kind of hard to hide in PJs, and if there's any physical attraction at all, it's going to happen. Unless they provide ice packs or something.

I can only feel sorry for people who are so starved of physical contact and affection that they need to resort to this. :neutral: There are many things wrong with my culture, but that is one that I think we mediterraneans have done well: having lots of physical (non-sexual) contact since childhood. I'm saddened when I hear of people (particularly women) who have sex only for the physical intimacy.

I feel the same way, Ber.

I had heard of this kind of thing before, but I would guess, no matter how noble the intentions of people that started the fad, and perpetuate it... the fast majority of people are looking to meet people looking for more than just cuddling.

At least, that would be why I wouldn't trust it to be what it claims to be... even if what it claims to be sounds very appealing.

The almost entire side of me thinks about the same. I imagine that, for a lot of people, the whole attraction of this thing would be to cuddle up with attractive members of the opposite sex (assuming that you managed to get any to come).

I have to think the things trend to the distaff side. It may not be PC, but the pix seem to support the theory.

Obviously none of you have ever been drama students. :roll:

It is a bit disturbing to see so many people link physical intermacy with sex. Why is that the only thing that would spring to mind?

Personally, I like cuddeling folk, but it's not sexual. Infact the idea of sex is usually the last thing on my mind (sorry folks). It is about shareing physical space and like Ber says, its quite natural.

Maybe there would be people who would go to such things to 'size up babes', but I would guess that most don't. They are just starved of phyical contact, or they just like it.

Physical intimacy, as expressed by a lot of casual body contact, is not inherently sexual. Putting on slinky/comfy/skimpy loungewear amidst a sea of bodies, though? Whether or not I want it to be sexual, I'm pretty sure my body is going to respond. I might as well enjoy the ride. :D

Agreed. Hugging on its own isn't sexual, but this seems to be.

Well I keep hearing that there is a rule about keeping the pajama's on. I do have to say I would just say no to group spooning. :scarey:

Oh, I assume they HAVE to keep things on the up-and-up, given the delicate balance they're shooting for.

*things about rephrasing that...decides against it*

Definitely foreplay for an orgy of sex.

I dunno about this. I've been trying to come to some kind of conclusion since this thread went up, but have so far failed. I think that there is too much potential for it to turn into an orgy.

Hmmm... Why do they need to resort to parties specifically for cuddling?
Surely they cuddle at normal parties.
