This June: Bringing you domination, sex therapy, pride + & more

Continuing with bringing sex-positive female voices from different backgrounds and cultures we bring you a diverse range of speakers this June. We may be in lockdown but we are continuing celebrations of Pride month at our Off The Records with Rudo. From exploring sex-positivity as a Muslim woman to sex therapy, this month our members are in for a treat. 

Share Your Self

Putting the spotlight on sexuality, relationships and body positivity, we invite cis and trans women, non-binary members and friends alike, to connect and celebrate each other at  Share Your Self once a month. 

Notice the emotions you feel from the words that are spoken, and be inspired by the power and vulnerability of storytelling. As a community of educators, writers, poets, activists and performers, whomever you are, we welcome you to ruminate on the voices that echo in the room. 3 guests per night will have 15 mins to recite a poem, present a story, or express an idea in whatever way they wish. The admiration, support and respect from the audience will praise each other’s journey of self-development.

The Real Sexual Education with Maîtresse Nuit: Learning Dom/Sub Dynamics, Lesson 2

In this three part workshop series, our selected guest will take you on a journey of sexual empowerment, personal confidence and relationship realness. Join this experience to level up your sex life and get clued in on the secrets behind true intimacy. 

As the second lesson in Maitresse Nuit’s series, this workshop will guide you through the dynamic of the dominant and submissive within a BDSM relationship. We will uncover the role of the female dominant, the mindset, activities, responsibilities. 

Are you someone who wants to experience authority, on a sexual pedestal… Or perhaps you are more drawn to the experience of the submissive – maybe even the thrill of humiliation? 

Not commonly thought of as an active role, Maitresse Nuit will help you to explore the powerful mindset of a submissive, along with the fantasies, desires, roles and responsibilities. Oh yes, the responsibilities of pleasing and serving the dominant. Let go of all your fear of control in this exciting workshop!

Conversations with …. Lohani Noor

Speak, listen, debate and learn: our monthly sex-positive Conversations tackle the tough topics and burning issues that affect every sexual woman in the world today. Each month, our Team Scarlet panel – the brilliant minds behind the Sonder and Beam community – are joined by a special guest speaker to focus on a different topic and talk it out. No holds barred, no taboos, no stigma, no shame: together, we will use the power of honest words and shared experiences to make a better world for every woman, everywhere, one sex positive conversation at a time.

Introducing Salma Haidrani: The Intricacies of being Sexually Empowered and Muslim

We are delighted to introduce to you the multi-award winning freelance writer Salma Haidrani for our fabulous ‘Introducing’ evening where we bring crucial topics to the table and elevate the conversation around sex and sexuality. 

During this talk, Salma will spotlight on the unique intricacies of how her faith relates to how she perceives and experiences sexual empowerment. Join us for an eye-opening, soul empowering and intimately educational event, where we will learn how faith – and mainstream faith at that – can be a positive force: contrary to one-dimensional views of Muslim women as unempowered and sexually passive, Islam celebrates female sexuality and women’s rights to sexual pleasure. 

Salma will also be drawing on the unique challenges that come with being a Muslim woman dating in secular Britain. “While sexual empowerment can be compatible with my faith, what challenges does this present for Muslim women like me when it’s disapproved of if it’s not in a marital context?”

Join Rudo every other Saturday for a dose of laughter, friendships and connections. 

Social Saturday

Laughter is good for the soul, so join members for an evening of activities and positive energy because the community knows how to have fun. Each month there will be a different game to play, details will be revealed once you have registered. To celebrate Pride Month 2020, don your rainbow cape for a special edition of this event.

Jim Jam Club LGBTQ+ Edition

The last Saturday of every month is the hottest ticket town, similar to a book club but with a twist. A factual programme is to be watched beforehand and then discussed, but participants must wear pyjamas/onesie. To round off Pride Month 2020 is The Lesbian Guide to Straight Sex on My5. Pets may attend as long they promise not to distract too much from the serious conversation…

The Programme: The Lesbian Guide to Straight Sex

Location: My5
