Ladies Only

 

Skirt Club is a social get-together or adult play party for ladies only. Think "girls night out," but with a Sapphic vibe. It hosts a private-members network for curious women, both intellectually and sexually. They seek to embolden women at a time when sexual fluidity is embraced. Regarding sexual adventuring, exploration, and experimentation, society is turning a page in modern-girl thinking of what sexual attraction can mean, and this project addresses that fascination. 

 

Skirt Club is the brainchild of Geneviève LeJeune, who founded the group in 2013 in London, England.  Since its inception, it has spread to Miami, Sydney, San Diego, Chicago, and San Francisco.  Similar groups espousing the same concept have been established in New York and Los Angeles.
 

The original Skirt Club, in effect since its inaugural party, remains exactly what it claims to be — a dedicated space for women who are otherwise coupled with men, or whose main sexual involvements are with men, to have sexual encounters with women. With no men around.

 

While the events have been billed as sex parties that let straight women be gay for a night, they purport to be more than just a sex party.
 

In so far as it focuses on straight people experimenting with their sexuality, "skirt club" is the female version of the male "down low" culture.  As such, skirt club activity, at least from a clinical standpoint, would be more accurately defined as "women having sex with women (WSW)" rather than lesbianism. Likewise the down low experience is defined as "men having sex with men (MSM)" rather than a gay experience.

 

Also, both cultures are considered covert and sometimes referred to as a secret society.

Female Empowerment

 

While the ‘sex parties’ gain all the media attention, Skirt Club is more than a female-only sex club. Skirt Club’s mission is to build an exclusive all-female community for empowerment and sexual discovery. A network of professional women with common interests.
-Ash Jurberg, Sexology Magazine, 2022

Skirt Club is an underground community for girls who play with girls. It was set up in 2013 by Geneviève LeJeune, who had attended "play parties" with a male ex. She soon realized she was doing things for his pleasure, not her own. So she decided to make Skirt Club for ladies only. It hosts a private members network for the curious kind; both in mind and sexuality. Skirt Club promotes glamour; free-flowing champagne, burlesque performers and…much more.


Skirt Club is for ladies only. It hosts a private members network for the curious kind; both in mind and body. It exists to propel women’s sexual empowerment at a time when sexual fluidity is embraced.

Society is turning a page in modern-girl thinking of what "sexual attraction" can mean. Skirt Club encourages that freedom of expression, and therefore our parties are for women only, meaning members can explore safely within their own boundaries and true to their own desires.

Sexual Meet and Greet

 

What does a Skirt Club party entail? Are we talking serious sex play, or more of a meet-and-greet setting?

We are talking about both. Women need to engage on a cerebral level before any kind of sex play is in the cards. We prefer the finer things: soft furnishings, mood lighting, champagne, and stimulating, informative conversation. The gracefulness of burlesque ignites the first sensations of desire.

There are two types of events:

--Mini Skirt - A cocktail soirée to meet other members
--Skirt Club - The signature play experience
 

Both feature a short talk and a sensual performance. We enjoy the educational element as much as the flirt and tease. Our desire is to build an exclusive all-female community for empowerment and sexual discovery. A network of career-minded women with a common interest. Confident, more informed women are more successful.

 



How does Skirt Club differentiate itself from established women-only, lesbian sex parties?

Firstly, we are not a lesbian sex party. In fact I could count the number of lesbians in our community on one hand. Skirt Club is very much about straight girls experimenting, and bi girls finding a home where they can meet other bi girls. I also refrain from the term "sex party" unless we can envelope the senses and the journey leading up to sexual interaction as part of sex. Men often overlook the nuances that lead to making that connection.

We specifically advertise as a safe place for bisexual and bi-curious women. Queer-leaning women and lesbians are welcome to apply. But we often find that they are not looking for what we offer.

Intimate and Intellectual Interactions

 

No Pressure...  No Expectations...


Even though Skirt Club is about exploring sexuality, it’s not just about having sex. Sex comes last at these events. In fact, attendees don’t even have to have sex if they’re not comfortable.

For the most part, Skirt Club is really a place of intimate and intellectual interactions. Many of the members are lawyers or businesswomen and they’re all intrigued by one another’s personal stories and desires.

"Skirt Club" is the signature play party for those curious about their sexuality. It’s held in a private venue with free-flowing champagne, burlesque performances, games “and wherever the night may take you.”

"Mini Skirt," on the other hand, is a cocktail soirée to meet other members. And because it’s held in a public space, no sex is allowed. However, there are still performances and drinks available.

 


"Sapience" is another type of experience. It’s a workshop for members who seek knowledge. They teach you about various things, from role playing to learning how to spank properly. Women have an insatiable appetite for knowledge, so having a workshop makes complete sense. And yes, they’re turned on by the end without having even touched each other.”

It's all about female empowerment. Because Skirt Club is an environment free from any pressure and expectations, women are left to do as they please. Organizers say that women experience a confidence boost in all aspects of their lives.

Not only that, but some of them have even experienced some form of healing at Skirt Club. According to organizers, some people have opened up to her about their experiences with sexual trauma. Founder Geneviève LeJeune says, “Skirt Club is a soft, no pressure way of getting back into feeling sexual. This is not therapy and we’re not claiming it to be, but I think it’s a way to learn how to get control back in a sexual environment. It’s a way that gives you courage to go forward and hopefully have a healthy sexual relationship with somebody.”

And because of such an open and safe environment, Genevieve often receives many well-deserved emails that say: “Thanks, I get to be me.”

Secret Sex Party for Bi-Curious Women
 

Reporting on-site from a Skirt Club event, Cosmopolitan magazine writer, Alix Tunell spent a night in the exclusive sex party where (mostly straight) women ditched their male partners to explore their sexuality in private.  "On this particular night in 2018," she explains, "I’m in Manhattan with 100 vetted members who each paid $180 for a champagne-fueled, masquerade-themed night of NSFW experimentation."

Alix shared this observation: "The four women in the bathtub are so preoccupied with going down on each other, they don’t seem to notice me watching them. I’ve been walking around naked in this stranger’s penthouse for several hours now, and tucked away in every nook of the apartment, groups of women are equally engrossed in one another. In a closet across from the tub, a woman is using a vibrator and moaning loudly. The rest of the master suite is crowded with limbs and faces buried between legs. The air smells like sex, but sweeter—perfume, plus sweat, minus men—and marijuana."

Skirt Club is a members-only society of nearly 11,000 women around the world, most of whom are in committed hetero relationships and identify as bi-curious or bisexual. Started in 2013 by a woman who saw a need for exclusively female sex parties, what was once a small gathering of 15 friends in London is now a full-fledged enterprise with approximately 50 parties per year in 12 major cities around the world.

Five years ago, Skirt Club’s founder, Genevieve LeJeune, was working as a branding consultant in London and going to sex parties with her then-boyfriend. He was interested in having threesomes; she was hoping to explore her bisexuality. It didn’t take long for her to notice how limiting those parties could be.

My Evening at Skirt Club

Skirt Club Review

As a sexually comfortable and confident twenty-something, I’m always looking for ways to explore what sensuality means to me. But in between bars and for those who don’t do dating apps, where do you turn? This is how I found Skirt Club.

Founded by women, for women, who like women, Skirt Club is an underground community where girls gather to explore themselves, and each other. After first finding out about the club online, it wasn’t long before I attended my first event – the Mini Skirt Club. Here ladies are introduced to the circle with conversation that’s as sparkling as the prosecco, and kinky party games to break the ice. After kisses are exchanged, cocktails are finished and cabs are booked, what next? It’s time to lower your hemline and embrace the full Skirt Club experience.

Hosted at a plush private home in West London marked only by a distinctive doormat, you’d never know what waits inside. I ring the bell and smirk to myself as unsuspecting pedestrians pass by, unaware of the stockings under my dress or the dirty thoughts on my mind. Once inside I’m greeted by the gorgeous organizers and handed a glass of champagne before I mingle amongst the other beautiful women there with exploration on the brain. I feel instantly at ease – there’s a shared feeling of enlightenment, and we all know we’re there for the same reasons. This is a secure place to experiment without worry, and to flirt and indulge your fantasies.

After the initial introductions and adventuring across the townhouse, the group of fifty or so girls arrange themselves for the entertainment. Tonight this comes in the form of psychosexual and relationship therapist Kate Moyle and Colombian belly dancing beauty Tahaty. Once the acts have been applauded, inhibitions are stripped along with clothing. Long dresses are shed in favor of lingerie as the evening picks up pace, and I’m free to admire the truly incredible women I’m surrounded by.
 


The sensual tease has meant my curiosity is at its peak, and I want to play. Walking past several storeys of rose petal sprinkled rooms I take to the terrace and sit with a small group as we gaze across the sparkling rooftops of London. I’m trembling, and I can’t tell if it’s from the cold November night or the anticipation of what’s to come. Locking eyes with a girl that I’ve been swapping stories and shared glances with, she admits that she can’t wait another moment to kiss me. We lean in, soft lips and sweet breath colliding. This isn’t the first time I’ve kissed a girl, but I know it’s the start of something that could be so much more.

I remember a small snug inside a book-lined study, and lead her there. As kisses turn more fervent, it isn’t long until we’re joined by a passing party goer who asks if they can join us. She’s beautiful – a brunette biting her lip, with perfect breasts and a soft stomach. How could I say no? In what seems like only a moment I’m in between the two, our small snug made even tighter as tongues travel across skin, my nipple gently tugged at by the brunette as my other playfriend plants kisses across my belly.

As incredible as this is, I’m eager to keep exploring. Wearing only my lace suspender belt, soft panties and stockings, I push the door open to another room and meet more women- some kissing, others talking as they stroke skin. “Does anyone know how to use this?” one giggling girl asks, pointing at a silk swing suspended from the ceiling. Never one to turn down a challenge, I help her into it. Another girl joins us, curious about the contraption and the two of us playing with it. As I watch her kiss the girl in the swing, a need aches inside me and I know I want to go further, and try what I’ve only done in my fantasies before now.
 

 


Gently holding her hips, I guide the girl in the swing towards me, kneeling in front of her. She keeps kissing the other girl as my lips gently caress the flesh along her inner thighs, and she breaks away briefly to gasp a light moan as I reach the place I’ve thought about for so long. The sound of her pleasure is a turn on enough – knowing that I’m having this effect. As a woman I know what we want, and I take great pleasure in slowly giving her that.

The night continues into the early hours, with women floating from room to room, exchanging fantasies but not full names. Everyone is comfortable, confident and at ease. It doesn’t matter if you’re there for sex or just want to see how the experience makes you feel – Skirt Club caters for everyone, with no pressure. The entire night emanates sophisticated and class, they definitely know what women want.

I get home at 2am with swollen, over-kissed lips and a lot on my mind. I feel strong, happy and confident in my sexuality – I struggle to stop myself smiling as I try to sleep as the events of the evening play out in my mind. I wake up the next day and log in to Skirt Club – I already can’t wait to go back.

Mini Skirt Event

Cocktail Party for the Bi-Curious

 

A recent poll by YouGov found that almost a quarter of the British public identify as something other than 100% heterosexual, and increases to almost half for those aged 18-24.

With more of us openly confessing our sexuality is creaking ajar, exploring these feelings may become more of a reality rather than a fantasy previously relegated to the privacy of our own imagination.

Answering the call of our curiosity is Skirt Club, an exclusive members club where women can explore their Sapphic side in secret. Described as an “underground community for girls who play with girls”, the idea alone is enticing enough. As a woman who would consider herself mainly straight, but open minded and admittedly finds women attractive, it offers the perfect opportunity to experiment.

After having my membership approved, I booked my place at a "Mini Skirt" party. More of a cocktail evening than a sex club, a Mini Skirt party allows interested members to meet like-minded ladies in a laid back and luxurious environment. Held at the Looking Glass Cocktail Club in Shoreditch, England, entering through a concealed mirror was exciting enough; and that was just the beginning.
 


Immediately you’re welcomed by smiling, beautiful women who exude sophistication and sexual confidence, and instantly make you feel at ease. A free tipple and a card matching game soon gets you settled in and introduces you to the others who have arrived, before burlesque performers set the sensual theme for the evening.

What’s perhaps most immediately recognizable is the lack of pressure or awkwardness.  Everyone there knows what they want, and are open to discuss it whilst giggling over glasses over wine. Although the playful and naughty tone of the night didn’t quite descend into pillow fights, it did include a round of spin the bottle and body shots – so perhaps the male fantasy isn’t too far off from reality. Soft kisses exchanged, lashes batted, lips bitten, the excitement amongst the group of empowered women was palpable as the evening went on.

As an introduction to Skirt Club, the Mini Skirt party means that clothes (mainly) stay in place, so there’s no pressure for those who are dipping their toe in to begin with. By the end of the night, names and numbers were swapped so that you can stay in touch with the wonderful women you’ve met that evening. Promises were made to attend the next full Skirt Club party, a secret event at a private location that could potentially lead to much more than party games.
