Cuddle meetup
« on: January 18, 2017, 05:39:40 PM »
I remember a previous discussion about this a while back.

I was debating where to post it.....

What are you needing? (And NOT getting)
Meeting new people? (Discussing meetups)
On line dating vents and laughs?

I gave up and just started a new thread...

You will need to be logged in to see it I think as it's a screen shot. The app would not let me copy and paste.

Would you go???

Oh yes, I remember the professional cuddlers. I told a couple of guys about it at work and one of them told me it was to much money he could get more for less. TMI I really didn't want to know how exactly he knew that.
I doubt I would go, I have personal space issues, I keep thinking I should go get a massage yet, the idea of a stranger touching me stresses me out, as much as I would love the physical contact.

cuddles only work for me if I like the cuddler....I don't relish massage for the same reason.That's also why fwb just seems bazarre to me.

 I'm a person where the physical pleasure is not separate from the emotional mind but that is just me , Ithink if these things work for you then it sounds like a cool idea.

As carefully as they worded the description I still see this meetup ending up being Perv Central  :o

I just read an essay a couple weeks ago about one woman's experience at a cuddling event:

It is a fearful thing to love what Death can touch.

I wanted to see some reactions before I offered my thoughts on this.

My first reaction was laughter. I couldn't believe this truly existed. Do people really do this? And yes,  what is training all about?

My next thoughts were that it did indeed feel creepy. I mean, complete strangers and practically intimate touching? Yes,  not sexual but cuddling is still intimate to me. I have only cuddled a partner, my children, or a very close friend.

For some reason, I see massages differenly though. It seems professional and therapeutic. Should I see this the same way? But the massage is delivered as a one way service. The cuddling is two way?

Thank you for the essay Bunny. It was interesting to see a full review of the experience.

Bottom line.....I do not think this would be for me!

I get that it sounds creepy, but we know that human beings need touch. Human touch contributes to our overall health, this is just people reaching out to fulfill a very basic need. Many people on this board have felt skin hunger. How many of us have enjoyed a hug from our neighbor or a co worker after losing our spouse? You know, the last time another person touched me was _____?

Someone today asked me for a hug and I happily gave her one. Maybe we can all use some cuddling!!

I crave the touch, but it still depends on who is touching me.  I honestly not sure what to say on this one.  Cuddling does help our health but just not sure if I could do it.

I'd consider going - heck, I'm a hug addict anyway.  It would stretch my comfort zone, but my comfort zone is pretty distended from what I've done in the past year anyway!

Take care,

There was something fishy about the butler.  I think he was a Pisces, probably working for scale.
