The first I saw a dental dam was in eighth-grade health class. I never thought I'd go to a sex party. parties, to me, were the sort of in-real-life bacchanalia that you only see in porn.
Not really my thing. I mean, I identify as a confident and fairly sexually Hookup a smart girl is lit woman, but I'm very tame in the sense that my preferences are strictly male and I'm partial to monogamy. So, why did I go to an upscale, ladies-only play party last weekend? Maybe it was the voyeur in me that agreed when the idea was sent my way, but the apparently feminist undertones of the company hosting it solidified my decision.
Touted as an "empowering female experience," the London-born Skirt Club was founded in to bring together "smart professional women looking for empowering exploration in a private, safe environment. The party started at 9 p. My friend Kristin, who I harangued into coming with me, and I showed up 20 minutes late.
We didn't want to be the first ones there, forced to make small talk longer than absolutely necessary. When we got to the door, a beautiful English woman wearing a chain-adorned corset ushered us into the dimly-lit loft, which was decorated with rose petals and candles. We were handed glasses of champagne and the first person I noticed was the bartender. She was wearing a bodysuit completely exposing her breasts, except for her nipples, which were covered in silver sequin pasties.
Kristin and I explored the apartment, giggling as we noticed yet another bedroom, the hot tub, paddles, bed restraints and dental dams. The first few hours were strictly mingling. Roughly 50 women, all between the ages of 21 and 49, sipped cocktails and chatted while two chocolatiers walked around passing sweets -- as well as pourable cocoa butter.
All I could think was, "here we go. Well, I think this text message sums it up:. About two hours into the affair, the chocolate tastings and general mingling wrapped up with the arrival of a burlesque dancer -- a lithe brunette with heavy eye makeup and a feather boa.
At the end of her set, things began to move from observation to action. The dancer let someone lick chocolate off her barely-clothed body and afterward, two women wearing only black lingerie came into the room and invited us to take body Hookup a smart girl is lit off of them. We all took part.
After all, I went to college. This led to a distinct shift in the mood of the room, leaving a lot of the women more emboldened to proposition one another than before. Two women began making out in the middle of the living room while others disappeared into various rooms. No doors were closed and anyone could enter and exit as they pleased. Kristin and I set up camp in the upstairs bathroom.
She drew a bath, got in, and I sat on the counter with my champagne. We stayed there for about 90
Hookup a smart girl is lit of the night, really only leaving to refresh our drinks or scope out what else was happening so we could report back to one another.
The bathroom became our living room, because virtually every other surface -- couch, counter, or bed -- was occupied. I didn't really want to interrupt a lot of the goings on in other rooms, and the transitory nature of the bathroom made it an extremely interesting place to be.
Women would come in to use the restroom and stay to chat While the bathtub did become a spot for sexual activity in the wee hours of the morning -- after we vacated -- for the majority of the night it functioned like a table we were all sitting Hookup a smart girl is lit. I didn't quite understand why straight girls would want to hook up with other straight girls. Women started coming in and out of the bathroom — each time with Hookup a smart girl is lit clothing on.
My crop top survived for three hours, and my skirt only 30 minutes longer. They asked me why I wasn't in my bra and panties -- or just plain naked -- to be inclusionary, not to criticize. This level of respect was consistent all night.
By the end of the night I barely noticed that everyone Hookup a smart girl is lit in varying stages of undress. The nakedness became completely
Hookup a smart girl is lit. I mean, when someone is being tied up with a red bungee cord and bent over in front of a large window, their nakedness seems not so noteworthy.
But it was also clear that Skirt Club caters to a very specific class of women. It's an empowering experience, but an "elite" one, only available to women who can afford it.
My only real critique of Skirt Club is the labels they use to market their events. The intention seems to be inclusive, not alienating, but that supposed inclusivity Hookup a smart girl is lit come without its issues. LeJeune has gone on record to say that queer womenspecifically, "often find that they are not looking for what we offer" as a reason it's not marketed to them. But when I told a queer woman, who is a dear friend of mine, where I had gone the day after the party, her only response was: By night's end, the apartment had become a den of a thousand orgies.
The large glass box of a shower had eight women in it at one point. The bathtub had six. The hot tub was littered with broken champagne glasses. Ultimately, Skirt Club is excellent for women who want to push the envelope on their sexuality and are looking to experiment in a totally private, safe space. As a straight woman with a bit more insight into girl-on-girl sex than I had before, would I go to an all-female sex party again? However, I would wholeheartedly encourage other woman to attend at least one in their lifetime.
