A new concept is all the rage in France! These are “cuddle” nights that allow people to receive affection. We explain everything to you.
If we were familiar with clandestine parties and foam parties, cuddle parties are increasingly popular today. A concept that already seduces many in the French capital and for good reason, many people are tempted by this experience. But what is it exactly? The concept is simple: people aged 18 to over 60 from all walks of life come to seek comfort, appeasementor simply tenderness by experiencing touch, hugs or even massages for an evening.
Asked by our colleagues from Parisien who lent themselves to the game, Alexandre reveals:“I think I can say that I have emotional needs and they are not 100% met”to explain the reason why he went to a cuddle party organized in a Parisian building this Wednesday, June 15, 2022. Installed on yoga mats or large blankets, the participants are guided by Katya , life coach and yoga teacher, and gradually indulge in hugs to comfort each other. The professional wishes to clarify that“there is no nudity or sexuality”.

A closer look reveals that Katya’s meetup profile has 311 members, proof that the interest is indeed there. “Emotional and tactile deprivation is scientifically proven to create psychological disturbances, increase stress, and cause physical dysfunction. It takes us 4 hugs a day to survive, 8 hugs to function, 12 hugs to thrive,” she says in her description. If you also want to try the experience, you will have to pay the sum of 30 euros.
