Doug Pouliot

About Me: Hi! My name is Doug. I grew up in New Hampshire. I've been a student of movement and dance since I was seventeen. I lived in Boston for many years spending lots of time practicing contact improv, tango and barefoot partner dancing. Just before covid I moved to Connecticut and bought a house with a studio, which has pleasantly grounded me and allowed me to put down roots. I feel my essence is that of a teacher, healer and performer. Those modalities are what I bring to my family, friends and the cuddle party community.

Favorite Cuddle Party Rule: Tears and Laughter are both Welcome. Let the roller coaster of emotions as we create trust and allow others to see who we really are, letting down the guards we often keep in place.

What I got out of Cuddle Party personally: During Covid I didn't get a lot of touch, and experienced anxiety. Cuddle Parties guided me to connect with people again. I felt moved by the work and decided to become a CP facilitator to get better at using the language of consent, and am creating community that values the giving and receiving of platonic nourishing touch.

Who I am as a Cuddle Party Facilitator / What you'll find at my Cuddle Parties: As a facilitator I feel I am a little like a lifeguard and a coach and. During the evening I am relaxed but vigilant as people explore the possibilities of connecting using verbal consent.
