A friend emailed me the other day regarding a love and relationship trend she'd recently noticed. Blame it on the STD epidemic, but it seems that non-sexual slumber parties are beginning to replace that other intimate form of getting a little affection, the f*$k buddy.
I wasn't quite sure about this until I came across the following video, which chronicles a "Cuddle Party," which is what some people are calling these little get togethers that encourage spooning, massaging and snuggling in a "safe" environment. (PJs and stuffed animals are strongly encouraged.) Is there something wrong with me that I find all this rampant hugging and touching vaguely creepy? And um, triply so after watching this:
What do you think? Would you consider going to a "Cuddle Party?" Cute or creepalicious?
