Cuddling is making a comeback in a big way.
All across the country, men — both gay and straight — are engaging in a weird trend, cuddle puddles, also referred to as cuddle parties or cuddle piles. It’s a chance for boys & men, gay and not, to get up close & personal in groups without taking their clothing off, we hear.
According to Urban Dictionary a cuddle puddle is “a group of people cuddling en masse, usually to comfort each other or express mutual friendship. Sometimes associated with raves and use of the drug Ecstasy; however, G-rated cuddle puddles can form in other situations.”
The phenomenon has become so popular in recent years that there are entire organizations specifically dedicated to scheduling and promoting cuddle puddles all around the world.
