Is There Sex in a Cuddle Party? March 5, 2018 – Posted in: Industry Telegram, News
If this is the first time you’ve heard of a cuddle party, you’re in for a surprise. You might think that this originated in Japan because they would think up of something as crazy as this. Events like these are actually very organized. There’s even a non-profit group that operates these parties all across the US where virtual strangers meet up to snuggle.
That’s actually a long paragraph that says no, you don’t have sex in a cuddle party. You’re probably thinking about an orgy, which is tackled in another article on our website.
The Cuddle Hormone
Believe it or not, there’s actually such a thing as a cuddle hormone. This is called oxytocin, which is produced by the pituitary gland located at the base of the brain. Of course, a cuddle is just a small part of the standards of what pleasure is. Sex will also release oxytocin or when you play with your dog.
As you can imagine, the cuddle parties are organized in order to tap into this pleasure hormone and leave you feeling good when you go back to reality once again.
It’s also a way to escape reality. If you are a shy person but loves to cuddle, this is the perfect party for you. The best thing is that strangers actually welcome touching and being touched. Everybody also knows why everyone is there.
So What Can You Expect from a Cuddle Party?
There are websites that set meetups. In some events, you pay a certain amount for the venue. In others, the host will shoulder all the costs. When you arrive at the location, you register and change into your pajamas or comfortable clothing.
The event will start with an introduction and some orientation in the Welcome Circle. This will be facilitated by a certified cuddle party facilitator (yes, there is such a thing). There will be an icebreaker exercise, which will help break down barriers because you are only meeting most of the people for the first time. You will also learn the history and the principles behind the cuddle party, you will be briefed on the rules and the terms used.
After which, the cuddle party begins. You can socialize and go right down to the cuddling. There will typically be mood music turned at a low volume so you can still talk. There will be snacks and non-alcoholic beverages. You can cuddle in the group or do it one-on-one. You can spoon or hug facing each other. The only rule is that you respect the other person’s boundaries.
Getting Rid of Your Inhibitions
The cuddle party is meant to break down your inhibitions and allow you to feel good about yourself. This is also a good way to enhance your communication and social skills, as well as how to respect boundaries. You can touch and be touched and make new friends. This is done in an environment where everybody feels safe. Of course, it will also help you understand your own boundaries as well. You can always say no to an invitation that you are not comfortable with.
