It is cool to be a 'lipstick lesbian' right now, with model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne, 22, becoming the poster girl for bi-curious women after her relationship with year-old actress Michelle Rodriguez earlier this year. Glamorous stars Angelina Jolie, 39, Amber Heard, 28, Lady Gaga, 28, and Azealia Banks, 23, have all admitted to relationships with women in the past and research shows that more and more straight women are keen to experiment sexually with girls.
It appeared women were there primarily to please their partners. I wanted something different. Something more glamorous, and where women really were calling all the shots so I decided to try it with a small group of interested friends, and remove men from the equation entirely. Most of our members are married or have long-term partners, and Skirt Club is a place for them to have a wild night playing with other like-minded girls before going back to their grown-up lives. The monthly sex soirees are held in high-end penthouse apartments in London's trendy Shoreditch neighbourhood, and, like all the best clubs, Skirt Club has strict membership criteria.
They expect a certain level of prestige at events - drinks, design, entertainment all has to be the very best - and they also expect a certain level of women to play with. They want to party with people like themselves so being attractive is crucial.
Plus there's actually more to the application process, including a questionnaire and personal meeting. We are after women with brains as well as brilliant bodies. She is keen to point out that a Skirt Club party is not a place to find your soul mate: Gay women are welcome to apply, but they probably won't meet the love of their life.
Body Tequila tends to break the ice and the women are quick to start making use of the venue as clothes start disappearing and the bedrooms and bubble bath gets busy. The parties are supposed to finish at 2am but we're often still going as the sun comes up. We love men but sometimes they just aren't enough, and Skirt Club is here to fix that. She is a married mother-of-one and has been to three Skirt Club parties. Everyone was really friendly and there was an excitement in the air, a kind of nervous tension.
People knew they were there for a good time and that it could get cheeky. We like to talk and we like to flirt. Things don't really kick off until after midnight. Women need foreplay don't we? We need to be warmed up. If you wanted to watch then that was fine, or if you wanted to do more then that was fine as well.
Skirt Club allows women to explore their sexuality without performing for a man, claims one member 'At one point I went to the bathroom in the bedroom and as I walked by there were two girls on the bed having a grand old time.
Later I did get involved in some heavy petting with one girl, then left the party by myself around 2am. Some had partners who were supportive of them going, some ladies were there without their partners knowing. They wanted a safe environment that they could experiment in and know that they were not being looked upon or judged.
When you take the male element out it seems a lot more about you and what you want. You're getting to explore your female sexuality per cent without having to perform for a male watching. It means we are more likely to take risks and explore.
What happens in skirt club stays in Skirt Club and that's what keeps us coming back for more.
