The Importance of Touch

Touch is Natural

Touch is Natural

From the day we are born, we crave touch and warmth. Babies cuddle with their parents; animals cuddle with their pack or herd. Touch promotes our bodies to create oxytocin, a hormone that improves our health in countless ways. It helps with stress reduction, circulation and mood. Cuddling is good for you…it’s scientific!

We All Need Touch

We All Need Touch

Some people cuddle with their partners or family, but not all of us can. Sometimes we are single. Sometimes life gets in the way. If you crave someone to cuddle with, our community may be right for you and help you be happier and whole. We all need more touch!

Touch is For Everyone

Touch is For Everyone

Single or partnered, man, woman, trans, non-binary, straight, gay, queer, a-sexual or anything else; at Hugz & Cuddlez, you BELONG. We don't care what your gender identity, LGBTQ status or preference, and all are welcome. Our community is the warmest and most nurturing and loving in the Pacific Northwest.


My partner and I attended a cuddle event and really enjoyed the quality of the space and the caliber and diversity of the other attendees! Very safe, clean, friendly and so much fun!!! We will definitely be attending future events. Thank you so much for creating this space for expression!

I love attending their events. As a female, even when cuddling with new people, I always feel safe and looked-after. I like that it is so inclusive and there are never any wallflowers left without partners to snuggle with. If you like touch, without the pressure of worrying if things are going to go too far, this is definitely something to check out.

We believe in the importance of therapeutic touch and personal and physical contact. This group feeds that human need for cuddling and hugging other individuals and feeling part of a whole rather than always isolated. Their events are very well thought out. All the participants are personally vetted by the organizer and we would definitely recommend this experience. It will change your life!!
