I've been hearing about these recently. Someone organizes a party for a fee and the attendees show up wearing mandatory sweats. Then you pair up with a willing person and spoon. Have you? Would you?

Me? For too many reasons to get into I would not.

A woman, well now maybe a man, has a business where (s)he cuddles. I thought she was flaky back then and her/his business has convinced me I am right. Oh, and (s)he has dubbed her/himself as gender fluid. That is a whole different post, though.

Funny you mention that. My husband was reading a list of franchises that people can invest in to start their own businesses. This was on the list as a franchise. Apparently, the franchisees train to give seminars on being calm and finding their inner peace or something strange like, that. Then when they are trained, they can get these parties together and give the seminar and everyone spoons.

My reaction was the same as everyone else here. Very weird.

No way! I am not a hugger and I don't like touching other people if at all possible.

I feel claustrophobic cuddling, unless it's with my cats . Then it's perfectly fine.

I heard about this on Howard Stern.

I've been very lonely before, but never so much that I would cuddle a stranger.

When I read the title of your post, I thought perhaps it was some kind of party where you get to play with puppies, like the college kids do after exams. I see that I was, most disappointingly, mistaken. I have never heard of this, and just reading about it gives me the heebie-jeebies.

Did you ever see the CSI episode where the adults dressed up in full fur animal suits and 'groomed' one another? That is what came to mind when I read your post. That would be a big old NO from me! Creepy!!
