CUDDLE FOR POLY PRIDE
Polyamorous NYC will host an All-Gender Super Massive Cuddle Party™ on Friday, October 5th 2007 from 7-10 PM. This benefit supports the Poly Pride rally in Central Park on Saturday, October 6th 2007. The Cuddle Party™ will be located at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center at 208 W. 13th Street. (room to be announced at the front desk)
“We organized our first Super Massive Cuddle Party 3 years ago, and it was a complete success,” says Polyamorous NYC founder, Justen Bennett-Maccubbin. “There was a great turn out and everybody had a fantastic time. We have members in leadership roles now whose first impression of Polyamorous NYC was that cuddle party. The event was so phenomenal it motivated them to actively participate in the organization.”
Cuddle Party™ is a structured, safe workshop on boundaries, communication, intimacy and affection. This playful, fun space gives people the opportunity to rediscover non-sexual touch in a relaxed drug and alcohol-free environment. It’s a laboratory where individuals can explore and experiment with what makes them feel safe and good.

WHAT TO WEAR: Pajamas - nothing too risqué. Think more comfy than sexy. (More drawstrings, less lace! No shorts.)
WHAT TO BRING: A pillow or stuffed animal if you like. Juice or sparkling cider is always welcome. Sorry, no liquor allowed. A full list of rules for the evening is available on the Cuddle Party™ website.
Polyamorous NYC is a social group in New York City for people who have an interest in long-term, romantically committed, multiple partner relationships. Meetings are held on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at 8 p.m. at the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender Community Center.
