Genevieve LeJeune is taking women’s empowerment to another level with Skirt Club.
If you haven’t heard of Skirt Club yet, Genevieve describes it as an “underground community for girls who play with girls.” Members are traditionally feminine, intelligent and career-driven women.
It’s a club that’s designed by women for women and is complete with free-flowing champagne, burlesque performers and a place to safely take control of your sexuality.
So if you’re looking to learn about the woman behind this business, keep reading. ENTITY sat down for an exclusive interview with her, and here are five things we learned.
To her, attraction is more complicated than a simple label. From her experience, sexuality is on a fluid spectrum and it shifts depending on her age, environment, and social circle. “I find it frustrating that we have to put ourselves in a box,” she told ENTITY in an interview. “I suppose that I have to say that I’m bisexual because I’m running a company for bisexual women. But I actually dislike saying that because I’m just me.”
For her, it doesn’t matter what gender the person is, it’s more about how she feels, what the other person’s personality is like and the level of connection she has with the other person.
Skirt Club was founded in 2014 after Genevieve had attended play parties with an ex-boyfriend. When asked about her experience, she said, “I didn’t see any women fucking men. I didn’t see women taking charge of how they want to have sex. They simply felt obliged to do it and that had to stop.”
Not only that, but Genevieve comes from a place where her former boyfriend fetishized her sexuality. He wanted to have threesomes with her every weekend, something she became uncomfortable with.
And unfortunately, many women she meets find themselves in similar situations. Many of them want to participate in threesomes for the sole purpose of pleasing their boyfriends.
But to that, LeJeune simply replies: “No. Please yourself.”
Skirt Club prides itself in creating a safe sexual environment where attendees can genuinely say, “Thanks, I get to be me.” Genevieve stresses that Skirt Club isn’t about the sex. Sex comes last at these events.
Instead, women are introduced to a community of other likeminded women who are intrigued by one another’s personal stories, motivations and desires. At Skirt Club, no one is there to judge you. And best of all, you don’t have to feel pressured or obliged to do anything.
Some women have even used Skirt Club as a place of healing from sexual trauma. As Genevieve explains, “Skirt Club is a soft, no pressure way of getting back into feeling sexual … it’s a way to learn how to get control back in a sexual environment.”
According to Genevieve, having a place to explore her own sexuality has been really grounding. And once she’s learned to be confident about that part of her life, her confidence translated to other parts of her life.
“The more sexually confident I was, the more risks I took and the less I cared about what people thought about me,” she told ENTITY. As a result, she was getting the contracts she wanted and she had more job satisfaction.
“I feel that if women could be more confident, then they could be more successful. And if I could give it to them in this way, then I was doing a good thing,” she added.
“I like supporting female entrepreneurs. Having done this all on my own, I know how hard it is,” she explained. “People have helped me. I’d like to help others, especially if they’re women.”
According to Genevieve, she just wishes that women are better off being friends than enemies.
And to that ENTITY wholeheartedly agrees.
