What we're about

We are a group of kick ass people that want to give back to our local community!

The Social Society is a social club for social good that supports six charities (see below) in Brighton and Hove by offering time, skills and expertise to support their development and the support they can offer to those that need it most. There is no obligation to give your time or skills, if you want to grow your own community and meet new people then this is also the group for you. Our events are fun, varied and our members are genuine people who want to contribute in whatever way they can.

Our meetup platform is free and some events are ticketed but we also have a subscription based membership where the real magic happens. Here you will find local discounts, training, coaching, group discussion forums and skills banks to support our charities. This is where our charities engage, ask for your help and get the support they need.

Va Va Vulva!

Cornerstone Community Centre

The Social Society has teamed up with Lucy Rowett, sex and relationship coach to explore the sometimes taboo subject of the female anatomy and owning your own sexual pleasure as a woman. Lucy has found that every woman she has worked with feels some sort of shame about their vulvas. So ... Let’s talk about.. The VULVA! It’s very common to see penises drawn everywhere, but vulvas? Nope! If you received any sex education in high school, you probably weren’t taught about the vulva. This meant that generations of women and vulva owners have grown up feeling embarrassed, confused and ashamed of their bodies. Body shame is something that all women experience, and this can have a negative effect on your self-esteem and your relationships. Maybe you feel that your vulva is ugly, weird or the lips are an odd shape? Let’s change that. Let’s help you reclaim your body, reclaim your genitals, and find your inner power. VA VA VULVA! Is a workshop open to all women and vulva owners to celebrate your glorious anatomy… the vulva! We’ll be creating art celebrating the vulva which you can take home. Whether you want to paint, collage, doodle or draw, this is your space to explore and get creative! We’ll provide all the materials- including magazines, glitter, paint, feathers, buttons, glue and pens- and you are welcome to bring any other materials you wish. We’ll provide inspiration, and use Lucy’s famous vulva pillow to help you celebrate all things vulva-liscious. This workshop will be fully clothed, and we’ll provide snacks and teas. All you need to bring is yourself, any other art materials you want and a bag to proudly carry your art home. Here are some ideas of what you can create: A vulva-liscious card to give to your lover. A celebratory self-portrait. A beautiful icon to scan into your computer and use as wallpaper on your home screen. A piece to put on your vision board. A luscious portrait to hang over your bed. The possibilities are endless, so what do you feel like creating to celebrate your vulva? By the end of the workshop, you’ll hopefully leave feeling: More confident in your gorgeous body.More comfortable with and knowledgeable about your glorious anatomy. More empowered about your vulva. Confident enough to say the word, VAGINA, without going red in the face! Tickets on our facebook page see link below https://www.facebook.com/events/350340255563314/
