What Are Cuddle Parties?

Cuddle Parties — Cool or Crazy?

"Hug-starved Americans are queuing up to squeeze total strangers," if we believe today's Daily Mail. While most of us are reluctant to touch people we don't know, some people crave nonsexual physical contact and are willing to get it from strangers at cuddle parties.

One company, simply named Cuddle Party, charges about $10 a session. They have rules too, the first three being:

  1. Pajamas stay on the whole time.
  2. You don’t have to cuddle anyone at a Cuddle Party, ever.
  3. You must ask permission and receive a verbal YES before you touch anyone. (Be as specific in your request as you can.)

I don't know if rule number two assures me or freaks me out, since it suggests you can go just to watch. As creepy as it might seem, it could be good for your health, though: research shows that people who cuddle are less likely to become depressed. What do you make of it?
