In today's world, many of us are not getting our Recommended Daily Allowance of welcomed touch, and Cuddle Parties were started to change this in a way that is conscious, healthy and nutritious.
The subject of frequent press acclaim, Cuddle parties mix workshop and social event in a way that provides a whole lot of G-rated fun. At a Cuddle Party you can get together with other adults to explore affectionate touch and communication in a safe, non - sexual environment. They are a place where you can relax and connect and grow, knowing that your boundaries will be respected. And they are great for both singles and couples!
After hosting nearly 100 highly successful Cuddle Parties over a one year period in New York, the founders of Cuddle Party (REiD Mihalko and Marcia Baczynski) decided in early 2005 to begin offering formal training to other potential facilitators with an intense 3-day seminar and workshop.
I attended the Santa Monica training in February with a goal of bringing organized cuddling to Orange County, and in August 2005 I became the tenth person to be certified as a Cuddle Party Facilitator. I now proudly list “Engineer and Professional Cuddler” on my résumé.
Since receiving certification I have been the Cuddle Life Guard on duty for numerous parties with groups as small as 6 and as large as 26. Most have been held at my apartment in Anaheim, which can comfortably accommodate as many as 20 cuddlers.
