Skip to comments.New thing for libs in NY, CA: "Cuddle Parties"
Posted on 08/30/2004 8:38:25 AM PDT by Uncledave
I saw a piece in this week's Newsweek about these. A nice, happy, safe zone for you to get snuggly huggies from strangers who will validate your inner child and needs for intimacy.
Thirty bucks a pop.
I bet this is a metrosexual thing.
Wonder how many of them are going to cultivate STD's till it reaches Sanfrancisco numbers?
For $30, I expect a two drink minimum!
30 bucks to get blue balls? I can get that for free.
Those attending these cuddle parties, IMO have SERIOUS mental problems, and SERIOUS maturity problems.
Some folks just have too much damn time on their hands.
When I was in college a friend of mine bet that he could get covered on the evening news if we ran around the quads in our boxers on the "coldest day of the century" - a day when the wind chill hit -40 in Chicago.
Six of us did and there were news vans present from ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.
We were mentioned on Nightline that night.
Ever since, the school has held a similar run every year - even though we intended it purely as a one-time prank.
That little stunt opened my eyes to the ease of manipulating the media and history.
Reminds me of the movie "Demolition Man".
This must be for women who can't find a man.
What a bunch of wienies. LMAO
More likely, for men who who can't find a man. ;)
"Have a joy joy day!"
Is it cash up front, or do I get the "huggies" and "snugglies" and judge their effectiveness before the green escapes my moth incubator?
'Let's Just Cuddle' means "No Sex Tonight" (According to new German dictionary)

BERLIN (Reuters) - A leading German dictionary publisher plans to launch a guide it says will help men translate the subtext of female conversation.
The Langenscheidt publishing group, best known for its well-respected yellow foreign language dictionaries, will launch sales of a 128-page book to translate such baffling female banter as: "Let's just cuddle" into "No sex tonight please!."
"Each themed chapter offers men behavioral tips and exposes hidden messages transmitted by women in everyday situations, such as on holiday or during shopping trips," said Silke Exius, chief editor at Langenscheidt.
Other examples in the "German-Woman/Woman-German" edition due out in October include explaining why a woman asks a man to take interest in the pair of shoes she may be trying on.
She wants him to look because he's about to pay for them.
Grow up. Get a job. Get married. What's WRONG with these people?
I wonder if they're using the three shells to wipe with?
Not to mention, WHO has the job of cleaning the shells afterwards? Sandy Berger?
Bunch of sweaty liberals in their jammies dry humping.(regardless of the rules they try to establish)
Where do they hold these events? At the Neverland Ranch?
A lot can be said about cuddle parties but then I remember that old saying, "If you can't say something nice don't say anything at all." Being a 20 yr Naval retiree every fiber of my being is wanting to jump all over this like Jason with butcher knife on a couple of college coeds campers.
Cuddle parties would be just fine if the right people are present. :-)
If Ann Coulter or Heather Nauert wants to pay me $30 for a hug, who am I to disagree?
I mean, how could I be so cold as to say no??
The only cuddle party I attend involves my 3 1/2 year old daughter. And she does it for free.
Since this is a Kerry-kind-of-thing, that should properly be: "30 bucks to get bleu balls?" You need the Frenchy, internationalist inflection.
Once a month parties for ho's...
this is so sick and dishonest. it is just another name for an orgy only it sounds "cute" because everyone is in their jammies. and we wonder why STDs are rampant.
It's a very lonely society when you have to depend on strangers for the warmth of a hug.
Komm, sußer tödlicher Asteroid.
Thus your screen name.

I can't describe to you how exhausting than run was. And I did it back when I was an active rugby player.
After two steps it was a struggle to draw any breath into my radically constricted lungs. Ice began to form immediately in my nostrils and between my teeth.
I couldn't see well because there was steam rising from my chest as well as my mouth.
The steam froze in my eyebrows and hair.
The best part was that although we started the run, a hot chick we didn't even know joined in halfway through, in her underwear, and finished it up.
I'll guess that, conservatively, 97% of the interview footage shot that afternoon was of her - featuring the effects that a sudden blast of cold has on the female anatomy.
Yep -- it's tailor made for the two Johns -- they like to cuddle!! This group will love them!
Better yet -- this is where the two Johns will go on Nov. 3rd for comfort!! INCOMING!!
These people are 'validating' their inner child when they should be giving the inner child a swift kick in the a$$.
I disagree. I saw the "inventors" on a TV interview. I think the only requirement for this type of party is that you are butt ugly and can't get a date on your own.

I saw that interview too. I was struck by the cuddlers grade school behaviour - like telling mommy just WHY they should jump over the cliff with their friends.
I think only a mentally ill individual would gather with strangers in that kind of environment (as for me, I would not even cuddle with my best friend in that manner)- if they are "normal" then it's about as normal as having a death wish.
and vice versa...
I agree. I hope the sarcasm in my post was apparent.
Sounds more like a homosexual thing to me.
Hey - You forgot the "KUMBAYA" Alert!
Bring your own Crisco.
I agree. I hope the sarcasm in my post was apparent.
It was! I almost said something like "then lets agree on all points shall we? But I thought MY sarcasm would get lost!
