We do not set a definitive end time, but let it end naturally, you leave whenever you feel like it.
Playspace • Normannsgate 24, Rogaland, Norge
Amazing beautiful brave souls!🌻
Want to start the new year in the best possible way?
We welcome you to our next Cuddle party at PlaySpace, so bring your friends!
This time, we have the wonderful Pål Bergman & Robert Hagala to guide us into cuddles! They both have heaps of experience in hosting Cuddle parties in Oslo, and we are so excited to finally have them over! Let's get those amazing snuggle hormones flowing!
WHAT IS A CUDDLE PARTY?
A cuddle party (or a cuddle puddle or snuggle party) is an event designed with the intention of allowing people to experience non-sexual group physical intimacy through cuddling.
The benefits of cuddling are endless, here are a few of them :
- Boosts serotonin, dopamine & oxytocin, which produce what some describe as warm fuzzies – feelings of connection, bonding, and trust.
- Boosts immune system
-Natural pain reliever
- Lower the Risk of Heart Disease, as it puts you in rest and digest mode
- Lower social anxiety
- Reduce stress, better sleep, regulate nervous system
- Better decision-making, greater compassion and trust.
Activities for this event will include a small workshop with exercises in verbal consent, (recognizing and expressing YES and NO), gentle warm-up to touch in small groups, and finally a cuddle puddle where everyone relaxes in a pile of cuddles on the floor. We keep our clothes on, and there's no expectation that you touch anyone or allow yourself to be touched unless you truly want to. You are encouraged to listen to and honor your boundaries.
There will be a closing circle at the end of the night if you wish to participate in that. As we have not set a definite end time, we don't know at what time exactly it will be, but around 22ish.
This is a drug-free space, so arrive sober! We will only get high on hormones at this party 😎
Wear comfortable clothing and warm socks!
Personal hygiene is important, so arrive freshly showered, and with no strong perfume.
Bring a water bottle, and a blanket if you tend to get cold.
There will be served a warm gluten-free vegan soup mid-event to avoid blood sugar drops, and snacks, fruit, and tea/coffee.
The event fee is 480 kr, which covers rent, honorary fees, soup, snacks, te/coffe. We offer helper tickets, and disability/student/pensioner tickets at a reduced price.
