As the evening ended it struck me that many of people who attend these events probably aren’t part of the sex blogging community. What Scarlet Ladies creates in its safe places is the spirit of openness and support and learning that many of us here benefit from on a day-to-day basis. Read more….

The Second Circle has been transformed into a women-only space this week as I’ve banished Rob in favour of two fabulous guests: Jannette Davies and Sarah Beilfuss of London-based sex-positive members club Scarlet Ladies. We’ll be tackling Jeanette’s favourite subject, masturbation, and sharing our porn and sex toy habits.

 Josephine talks to Scarlet Ladies co-founders Jeannette Davis and Sarah Beilfuss. Their weekly workshops, panels and women’s circles are designed to create safe spaces for women to talk about and explore their sexuality.

If you haven’t heard of them before, Scarlet Ladies Talk is a female members club that holds panel talks and events that frankly, openly and honestly discuss sex, femininity, ‘femaleness’ and everything in between in a safe, non-judgmental space.  Read more…
