Last week, on a dark October evening, I left work full of anticipation to attend a Scarlet Ladies blogger social.
Being new to the blogging world, I had no idea what bloggers were like IRL. Or what the Scarlet Ladies had in store for me…
The Scarlet Ladies are a London based collective of women that host talks, workshops and meetups which are aimed at breaking down the stigma and shame attached to female sexuality. Of which, there’s a lot!
So I headed over to their HQ in Paul Street, London for a little soiree to find out what they were about. And can I say, it was fabulous…
The interior of their venue is beautiful- deep green walls and quirky Moulin Rouge meets Gatsby-esque decor (including a saddle and glitzy vintage clothing racks for dress up). Because it was so sumptuous I couldn’t help but feel it was the ideal mysterious, sensual location for such a meet.
Behind a secret door in a bookshelf and over a glass of bubbly I chatted to other bloggers and had a real giggle over a game of “I have never”.
Being around women who seem so sexually empowered and are blogging around SL’s values: Freedom, Inspiration, Esteem, Respect, Courage and Enjoyment was incredibly powerful for me. They are all women who enjoy sex, are confident in what they want and are having fun with their sexuality.
I realised that it’s so important for us all to tap into resources like this- a social space to hang out and check in with other women who are in tune with their sexuality. Who knows, maybe a bit of their great vibes will rub off on me 🙂
On another note, all of the events they run that educate and illuminate sex and pleasure for women’s eyes only. So it’s a safe space to explore that side of yourself, and learn more about yourself and your sexuality. I can’t wait to attend my first one!
