Snuggle Up

I know I've mentioned it before, but seriously - let's talk about Cuddle Parties again. Cuddle parties are events that promote "nonsexual snuggling" and take place all over this country. Maybe even in your own town. Or bedroom.

Now, you can't just show up to a Cuddle Party, take off your trenchcoat and meld into the flannel jammie pile. There are rules. And I know what you're thinking, but no. The first rule of Cuddle Parties isn't don't talk about Cuddle Parties. In fact, sharing is what makes Cuddle Parties so special. Here are the rules:

1. Pajamas stay on the whole time.
2. You don’t have to cuddle anyone at a Cuddle Party, ever.
3. You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. (Be as specific in your request as you can.)
4. If you’re a yes, say YES. If you’re a no, say NO.
5. If you’re a maybe, say NO.
6. You are encouraged to change your mind.
7. Respect your relationship agreements and communicate with your partner.
8. Get your Cuddle Party Facilitator or the Cuddle Assistant if you have a question or concern or need assistance with anything during the Cuddle Party.
9. Tears and laughter are both welcome.
10. Respect people’s privacy when sharing about Cuddle Parties.
11. Keep the Cuddle space tidy

I can easily say number 11 is my favorite. What exactly does an untidy Cuddle space look like? I don't think you want to know.

So ladies and gentlemen, let's get creepy cute:
