Hmmmm, do I really want to be touched by total strangers?

This is what it's about and here're the rules.

Fair enough. Would you consider going to one of these functions?

I've actually organized a couple of these....I'm a big proponent of friendly and non-sexual touch...I mean, it's proven to be a part of human growth and development, and I've seen nothing but good come from these.

Zemo,

I agree with you and my post is not meant to make fun/light of such functions.

better idea than the "instant mob" thing at least. you didn't get anything from meeting at Toys R Us to yell at the Lego T-Rex and run away

Interesting concept...

[wonders what this would do in a coporate environment]

This sort of physical affection should be saved for young children, who need psychological reinforcement through the touch of a kind and loving parent. Grown people should be confident in who they are. If you aren't, no amount of mutual groping with people who have similarly shaky self-images is going to help.

Seriously cuddle parties???. This is the first time I have ever heard of them. It just sounds a bit ewwww.

I am not making fun of the concept or idea, it's just I never heard of them.

Personally i reckon stripper parties are the way to go, but that's just me....
Just kidding, I would never do something like that. The thought of stunning women being exploited by taking their clothes off.

It sounds to me like you might benefit from a good cuddle

What a terrible, terribly amusing thing to say. I myself have reservations about a group of people lying about, "cuddling." However, I'm not about to open that can of worms.

hmmm... it seems to be based in NYC? The next cuddle-fest is on the 18th. There's a head-fi meet on that day. I've got to cuddle some headphones instead
Honestly, it's so crazy hot and humid here right now, I can't imagine being next to group of people. The potential for body odor and stickiness is tremendous.

What if you get a woodie...<he reads on> ...oh your not allowed to do anything about it???!!! Who thought of this, Dr. Phil? Also, as Ian astutely states summer in the city is not the time to get into jammies and be next to hot sticky strangers. There's the #4 subway for that

Um, I wouldn't go to one. I'm the kind of person who likes my personal space a lot. People who I don't know (ie outside my family) know not to touch me or get inside about .75 to 0.5 of a metre or I start feeling very tense. Perhaps its an artificial learnt response which might be overcome by something like this. At any rate I don't think I'll be attending one anytime soon.

Having said that I can see how it would appeal to some people - just not me.
