CUDDLE

Preliminary Study on Cuddling and Queer Polyamory

Downloadable scientific journal detailing the research, data, and analysis of the experiment.

Embracing a notion of radical experimentation, the Cuddle Study surveys non-monogamous forms of intimacy through physical touch in groups of 3 or more. Subjects with varying platonic, romantic, or sexual relationships were asked to test out different cuddle positions and write notes based on a set of guiding questions that consider factors such as: comfort, flexibility, utility, and kind of relationships the position would best suit in order to evaluate the best cuddle positions for groups. The featured photos and literature were the results of the investigation.
