      EVENT DETAILS
      Snuggle Party

      There is vast literature of the benefits of hugging and yet we are a touch-deprived society. We are afraid to touch, to ask for touch, and to reach out for the touch we need.

      This snuggle party is a workshop for adult participants on the art of consensual and boundary-appropriate touch. The premise of cuddle parties is the recognition that the 'need to be held' is very close to and equally vital as more conventionally accepted human needs like thirst, hunger, and sex.

      We'd like to invite you to come co-create this safe space in which all genders can begin to communicate more authentically and listen profoundly.

      In this space, you will have the benefit of doing as little or as much as you desire – and will be encouraged to just be you. You will learn to create strong boundaries for yourself without shutting others down and begin to be more open to others and able to give and receive comfortably, and be touched, valued and nurtured.

      NB: The Snuggle Party is a clothes-on workshop.

      TICKETS, LOGISTICS, AND LATE POLICY
      Tickets are released in ‘rounds’, where ‘round one’ and ‘round two’ tickets are discounted to encourage you to book in early. There is no other difference between the ‘rounds’ of tickets. Tickets range in price from $55 to $80, per person.

      It is never possible to buy tickets on the door, nor by paying with cash. See our FAQ for more information on this: https://www.curiouscreatures.biz/faq.html

      Workshops start at the advertised time, and doors will be locked ten minutes later. This is because late arrivals interrupt the dynamic of the group, and will miss crucial safety information.

      ABOUT THE FACILITATOR
      The Snuggle Party workshop is presented by Dr Martha Tara Lee (from Eros Coaching in Singapore) who strives to be one of the best sexologists in the world. Curious Creatures is proud to partner with her sex-positive events.

      Surrounded by friends who were sexually inhibited and struck by dire lack of positive conversations around sex and sexuality in Singapore, Martha decided to take it upon herself to be an advocate for positive sexuality in 2007. She earned a doctorate in human sexuality, and launched Eros Coaching in 2009. Today, she also has a masters in counseling and remains dedicated to working with individuals and couples to lead self-actualised and pleasure-filled lives.

      She has worked with a lot of couples who have an unconsummated marriage, men and women with sexual inhibitions and sexual desire discrepancies, men with erection and ejaculation concerns, GLBTQ people, and kinky folks. A born and bred Singaporean Chinese, Martha welcomes individuals as well as couples of all sexual orientations.

      Since 2011, Dr Lee has been (and still is) the only certified sexuality educator by the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) in Southeast Asia. She strives to be the one of the best sexologists in the world. She takes pride in making sure all her events are fun, educational, and sex-positive!

      - I have free will, and if I need to leave the workshop at any time, I can. If I do, I will let the facilitator know I am leaving if it's possible to do so, or get in touch with the facilitator/s afterwards to let them know why I left.
      - I am an adult and I understand that many of Curious Creatures' workshops are about sex and sexual practices. I understand that while the organisers are strongly committed to safety, there is no such thing as a 'safe space', and that I am responsible for my own safety.
