An outlandish group of men in Pennsylvania meet for “platonic cuddling” twice a month, offering a fascinating view into the psyche of the beta male.
The bizarre “Men’s Therapeutic Cuddle Group” in Northwest Philadelphia offers highly structured male-only cuddle sessions, with “‘safe touch’ boundaries,” and only “non-sexual cuddling,” including such male-on-male action as the “motorcycle style”, the “cuddle train”, “hand holding”, and the classic “hair or beard stroking” among other methods of exciting male-only contact.
According to the event organizers, these acts allow men to experience “‘the three A’s’; Acceptance, Affirmation, and Affection,” in a safe environment.
Men are invited “to participate regardless of your religious beliefs, marital status, or sexual orientation,” though attendees are reminded to keep fully clothed throughout the cuddling sessions.
Men are also encouraged “to cuddle with a man who may carry the energy of their father, a brother, or the jock who may not have affirmed them in High School.”
Philly.com reports that the group also exists to challenge “toxic masculinity” through its cuddling sessions.
At a time when traditional ideas of manhood are facing scrutiny and such terms as toxic masculinity are becoming more widely known through the MeToo movement, the group aims to provide new ways for men to express themselves.
“So often, we’re taught that to be an emotional stoic is the mark of manhood,” said Scott Turner, a 46-year-old interior designer and cofounder of the group. “If you show any emotional weakness or vulnerability, that’s a failure to your title of a man.”
But “if we expect men to be emotionally sensitive to the needs of others, they first need to be able to build an emotional vocabulary,” he said.
The article also reveals that the men have reached new levels of intimacy, as many men now consider the relationships they formed with other attendees to be closer than that of siblings or a father and son relationship.
One attendee’s family even calls an older cuddler “grandpa.”
SICK: NeverTrump Political Operative Calls to Doxx NUNS For Appearing at Ohio MAGA Rally
Never Trump is doxxing Catholic nuns for supporting Trump.
A Never Trump ex-Republican and liberal campaign consultant called for a doxxing operation to be conducted against Catholic nuns who were seen on camera in attendance at one of President Donald Trump’s ‘MAGA’ rallies in Ohio.
Peter Vroom, is self identifying “ex Republican” campaign consultant. He identifies himself as the CEO of Convergence Event Technology. He took aim at a group of Catholic nuns affiliated with the Children of Mary religious order in a set of Saturday tweets.
Vroom slammed the sisters’ support of the President- who has governed as the most pro-life President in a generation- as “bizarre and disgusting.”
Vroom went on to publish personal information from the sisters’ religious order’s website, tacitly encouraging them to be doxxed.
Vroom had earlier tried to shame a nun for not wearing a face mask, ignoring that she was speaking to a crowd at the event.
Receiving the support of any professed religious (a Catholic term for those such as nuns, friars and monks)- who have sworn vows of poverty, obedience, and chastity- should be considered an honor for any political candidate.
Thankfully, there’s not much that a good little corporate leftist such as Vroom can really do to punish those who have renounced all worldly possessions. He was roundly ratioed in response his Twitter doxxing campaign, with more than seven thousand responses to his initial call to publicize the nuns’ personal information.
