Cuddle Parties?

In honor of April Fools I have decided to dedicate today's posts to things that really seem like they should be a joke...
I was flipping through the channels the other day and saw a, what I think is disturbing, story on the news...
Cuddle parties - a sleepover for grownups where even though the pjs stay on the whole time you still are allowed to cuddle, nuzzle and spoon complete strangers.
"This is a way of framing touch in a positive way," says cuddle party facilitator Edie Weinstein-Moser.
It starts off by everyone sitting in a circle and introducing themselves and going over the rules, like everyone must ask permission before cuddling someone. When everyone is clear it begins. Usually lasting about 3 hours it's apparently a way of letting adults achieve better intimacy and communication.
Alright... who the hell is going to these things??? Am I the crazy one who thinks this is completely creepy? The thought of going into a room of complete strangers in their pjs is weird enough but then being expected to spoon them??

  2. Though I understand the sentiment that human touch is healing and powerful - I also find cuddle parties with strangers completely creepy. Then again, I'm not a huge fan of random touching...
