Rewind to Sex and the City had just come out, Ann Summers spiced up the high street and the press were talking about a female sexual revolution.
Emma Sayle was working in PR at the time, working on some erotica exhibitions when she noticed they were run by men for men. So, she set out the mission to create a safe space in which women could explore their sexuality without being judged or putting themselves at risk, and her brand Killing Kittens was born. Now, Killing Kitten hosts successful female-first sex parties all over the UK, reaching as far as the US and Australia with more thanmembers.
Emma says they tend to keep the sex parties at around 60 per cent female. In the run up to the event I felt a mixture of nervous anticipation and excitement, having never done anything remotely like this before.
I wanted to go in without any expectations, but just to enjoy myself, have a totally new experience. I knew no matter what happened I was in control and in a safe environment to explore in any way that I chose to.
Walking into that first party was a thrilling experience. A room full of masked strangers with an air of anticipation.
It was clear everyone had made an effort and straight away people were mingling. After a while people started to get changed, or undress and explore the various areas for play.
To witness people, particularly women unashamedly being themselves in every way possible was a thrill and I loved it. When it comes to the actual parties, Killing Kittens events are unique, because the women have to make the first move.
