Skirt Club in SF offers sexual freedom for straight and bicurious women

San Francisco, long a bastion of erotic freedom and home to groups celebrating alternative sexuality, has welcomed a newcomer into the fold — Skirt Club, a British sex club for women.

Skirt Club was created in London in 2013 — not for lesbians, but for straight and bisexual women interested in experimentation, said founder Genevieve LeJeune, 35. Skirt Club has since opened chapters in Berlin, New York, Miami and Los Angeles.

The bisexual LeJeune, a former finance executive, was motivated by bad experiences at play parties with a former boyfriend.

“I’d walk in, having purchased a ticket, and I’d be mauled by lots of men standing naked, beer inside of them — no respect,” LeJeune said at a cocktail launch party at Monarch bar in SoMa on Feb. 2.

Her boyfriend was also tone-deaf about her needs. “Being a bisexual female somehow gave him the license to point out the females in the room he wanted me to kiss, so suddenly it was his threesome, his fantasy,” LeJeune said. “ I felt very pressured by men, generally. I just thought this had to stop.”

She created her own club, aiming to attract members she’d want to mingle with — professional women ages 18 to 49 who identify as straight or bisexual. Members who pay $150 for a ticket are admitted to play parties, where they can engage in sexual experimentation anonymously and “judgment-free,” LeJeaune said.

A subsequent boyfriend, now her husband, told her it wouldn’t work, because women wouldn’t pay $150 for a ticket to a sex party. Turns out LeJeune has discovered an untapped market. With the relaxing of social and cultural mores during the past decade, LeJeune and others say it’s easier to be open about sexual fluidity. Skirt Club’s membership, LeJeune said, now counts 6,000 members worldwide.
