I cannot tell you how long I have been looking to create a space where members can make their sexual happiness part of their daily lives. From the very beginning, when we were Scarlet Ladies, we dreamed of creating a safe space that completely normalises sexuality for women. We found that at 23 Paul Street and really embraced our Home there. Every Tuesday we hosted an event for members to learn and connect. However, that never really felt complete as I wanted a space where everyday women can feel safe to talk, not just Tuesdays. We then launched our WhatsApp group but we were never too happy with it as it did not have all the features we wanted.
The Pandemic happened and everything went quiet for us because we couldn’t do what we do best, which was real life events. Just like a lot of people, I began to think if there was a future for Sonder & Beam and what could it be. After a year plus of back and forth with myself I decided to push forward and evolve the community. We cannot remain the community we were when we started over 5 years ago. Times have changed and will continue to change. A few months back I announced our return and now I am announcing our brand new space.
Welcome Our Digital Home
An online space accessible via our website and an app where you can connect with like minded women and non-binary people. A central hub where you can be part of a supportive community, build friendships, have daily conversations, book events, access monthly ebooks, exclusive classes and more. The best thing is that you can enjoy the community wherever you are.
How does space work?
Your very own Activity Feed
Once you join and create your account and login, you land on the Home tab, which is your Activity Feed. Your Activity Feed is personalized for you. And it’s the heartbeat of your Sonder & Beam experience. In your Activity Feed, you’ll see the posts, articles, polls, questions, and events added by your Host and other members.
Follow topics to suit your needs
Quick Posts, Articles, and other activities like Polls, Questions, and Events fall under a topic. Follow topics to stay up to date on content suitable for your needs. If you don’t want to see any activity in a particular ‘Topic’, you can choose to hide that topic from your feed.
Create polls, questions and articles
Start new conversations and share experiences with other members through polls, questions and articles. Articles are our members only journal area where members can share stories and opinions for other members to read.
Create your very own events
We have made it even easier to host your very own discussions with members of the community. There are three different event types to choose from: local events to meetup with members in your city, live chats and online meetings. Once you’ve set up an event, you can share it out and members can RSVP.
Follow and Message a member
Stay up to date with fellow members by following them. When you choose to follow another member, this will trigger more of that person’s activity to show up in your feed. You will also get notified whenever that person posts something new. Furthermore, you you can send and receive private, direct messages with other members
We have also updated our events and groups to suit our new space; enjoy daily events to learn, be empowered and connect. We are all about normalising conversations on sexuality. Which is why our ALL members have access to our discussions and can create their own discussions.
Every day join our live chat where we discuss a topic to educate, inspire and empower each other. Run by members for members these discussions are all about coming together to share. Expect special guests such as your favourite educators and professionals who will help to lead the conversation.
Beam Talk is the full length version of our open event Sexuality Unwrapped but for members only. If you loved our 30 minute chats but wanted more then Beam Talk is for you. A monthly meetup where no topic is off limits. This is your time for some well deserved me time to connect, educate and share ideas.
If you want to take things further; meet local members, learn new skills and listen to inspirational speakers our groups are the perfect private spaces for you. With their own dedicated space we will take you further and everything that happens in a group stays in the group. Groups function as sub-groups in Sonder & Beam that have their own branding, their own members, and their own Topics, Articles, Polls and Questions, and Events.
