Presented by Queer Connect with Finn Deerhart & Sam Sebastian
Our Cuddle Party is a social space to share loving, intimate touch with an awesome group of people. It’s an intentional, non-sexual space where you can learn and practice communicating boundaries and consent and various modalities of touch. Our Cuddle Party is founded upon our beliefs that:
♡ Nourishing touch is a cornerstone of connection, whether sexual or nonsexual.
♡ We have so many ways to acquire sex, itself. However, our needs for touch range widely from the explicitly erotic to gentle and nurturing. We believe there is a powerful need in the gay community to share this entire spectrum of touch—not just sex as a means of connection.
Cuddle parties are transformational spaces that help us to drop into our bodies, to feel respected in sharing touch, to learn how to communicate boundaries, and to feel connected and loved in a group with out additional pressure to hook up or perform.
What to expect:
Doors open at 7pm and doors close at 7:30 sharp! We’ll have an opening circle to create our container and set agreements for the evening. Then we’ll share some fun exercises to bring the group together and help bring us out of our heads and fully into our bodies.The rest of the evening will be an open, non-sexual space to talk, share touch, and connect. We encourage you to be courageous and to ask for what kind of touch fulfills you. We will be vibing out to sexy music in an awesome home with a gorgeous view of San Francisco. Snacks and nonalcoholic drinks will be provided. Sensuality is absolutely encouraged, but clothing will stay on.
The Queer Men’s Cuddle Party is for anyone desiring an intentional form of physical connection that strongly supports boundaries and consent. No prior experience is necessary, just an open heart. This is an event for anybody identifying under the umbrella of queer men, including gay, bi, and trans folks.
