If you ever wondered if fads could get any more stupid than flash mobs, say hello to the Cuddle Party.

I'll let the official Web site explain:

Remember when you were 6 years old and you and all of your cousins crawled into the top bunk and squealed and squirmed until your parents came in and had to quiet you all down? Or how about when you and your friends would make tents with the sofa cushions and whatever blankets mom would let you play with? Remember how you'd make the tent and then all snuggle up inside playing with Lego and dolls?
Uh, no. But go on.
Short of making tents and trying to fit everybody atop a bunk bed, this is the feel Cuddle Parties are going for.
Okay... whatever.
Wait. There's more.
In today's world, many of us aren't getting our Recommended Daily Allowance of Welcomed Touch.
Oh, dear lord.
Cuddle Parties seek to change that and change it in a way that's conscious, healthy and nutritious.
Nutritious? Wha...?
Many of us grew up taught that a pull-out couch full of puppy-piled kids all camped-out in front of the TV was okay, but somewhere between ages 11 and 31 things changed. Now it's only okay for kids to do that.
Hello? Operator? Get me the sexual harassment hotline, please.
Who's behind all this nonsense?
Reid Mihalko is a bi-coastal sex and romance coach currently based on the island of Manhattan. His mission is to teach men and women how to create safe space for themselves and one another in order to be more fully self-expressed, sexual, intimate, related and playful. His intention in creating the Cuddle Parties, along with his workshops, lectures, films and books, is to create a safe environment for men and women to touch, be touched and love one another in a healthy and nutritious way.
There's that nutritious thing again. Won't someone please explain?
Then again, please don't. It might involve violating my personal space. Posted by Jeff at April 21, 2004 08:17 AM | TrackBack

Prediction: Cuddle parties will be the largest mass-ugliness conventions the world has ever seen.

It's also a WONDERFUL way to spread communicable disease. All that touching? Pink eye, anyone?
