CANCELLED - Men*s Hayward Cuddle Party® - Saturday August 12

  • Hosted by Emotional Fermentation
  • Hayward, CA -
  • 16 people on the list-

UPDATE: This event is cancelled due to various logistics complications. If you are interested in a future Men*s Cuddle Party, please contact me at 💖

Pst, it's really a communication and consent workshop! Can involve cuddling (but not required)!

Join us for a special Men*s Cuddle Party! Cis, Trans, Non-binary, Genderqueer, Demi, anyone on the masculine end of the gender spectrum are welcome. I, as your AFAB facilitator, will be channeling my they/them side. Shawn Lucas who organizes the Bonobo Men*s group will also be assisting and available as support.

My intention is to provide a space for people who experiences life from a male perspective to connect in a structured container. My hope is for folks to be curious about what kind of connections could be made in that space for platonic intimacy.

Cuddle Party® is a non-sexual communication and consent workshop where we practice asking for what we want and expressing our boundaries. We aim to be inclusive for all identities, orientations, and ages beyond 18 :)

We'll begin the event with a Welcome Circle where we introduce ourselves, go over the rules of Cuddle Party, and do some exercises to help practice the rules of cuddling. Following the Welcome Circle we’ll have a few hours for free-style cuddles and hangouts with potluck snacks. We’ll end with a short closing circle to reflect and transition out of the event. More info available here

Please arrive between 1- 1:15pm. If you are later than 1:30 you will be turned away. (NOTE: This is a workshop about holding boundaries and one of the ways I will model it will be around time. There is always traffic on 880. Leave time to find parking. Thank you for your support)
