We welcome women who are growth minded and have thoughts, ideas and/or a lifestyle which is “alternative to the mainstream”. However, no one in general society would know you have such thoughts, ideas or lifestyle.
Sorry men, but this is NOT a place for you.
At this point, you may feel the need to hide a part of yourself and possibly even deny who you really are, due to society’s expectations and rules about what is acceptable.
This is a Safe Place for You
Bad Ass Red Dress Society is open to adult women of all ages, races, shapes, sizes, colors, creeds, backgrounds, sexual orientation, relationship orientation, configuration or status, religious or spiritual practices and personal identity.
This is a group which embraces diversity in all its glorious forms.
Do you identify as someone who society doesn’t look twice at? Yet you live a lifestyle or have thoughts inside you which some might call “deviant, dark, unconventional, or alternative”.
As a result, you live your “Authentic life” in the closet because your friends and family would not approve or would shun you.
You may be feeling isolated, or alone in your thoughts, feelings and/or your lifestyle.
I am here to tell you…YOU are in GOOD COMPANY here at Bad Ass Red Dress Society.

Where You Begin
Bad Ass Red Dress Society guides your journey of collaboration, connection, acceptance, support and guidance from and with other women.
These are women who have life experiences to share which help you on your Journey of self-discovery. You can also benefit from sharing yours.
Trust between and acceptance of each other is paramount. BARDS embraces the unique diversity which exists within the women of our Society.
Women come to BARDS seeking a place to ask questions, find answers, and create community with other Authentic women.
Open, Bluntly Honest, Caring and Transparent communication is critical . This helps to broaden your perspectives and be free of restrictive practices.
BARDS teaches you new ways to speak and interact within yourself and with others.
We are non-judgmental about where you are in your journey. We embrace you where you are.
Our common denominator is we are all women. We have experiences of being a woman in society and cultures, relationships, sexuality, spirituality, family structures and within our inner soul.
Similarly, you come from cultures, family structures, religious constructs and relationships which have limited, restricted, oppressed, and/or suppressed you. These experiences range from mild to extreme. They kept you from finding and being your true authentic self. This is especially true about your sexuality.
In addition, you are living, curious about or interested in Ethical and Consensual Non-Monogamous Lifestyles or other “alternative” lifestyles are at home among Bad Ass Red Dress Society Women.
Arguably, many Alternative Lifestyles are not yet fully accepted by the general public. These include Bisexuality, Transgender, Polyamory, Open Relationships, Swinging. As well as Friends with Benefits, Being an Ethical Slut, Kink, or however you define your “non-conforming” thoughts, desires or interests.
We are not a counseling service, nor therapy. We provide information, guidance, reflection, acceptance, connection, and community. BARDS supports you to learn, create, and live an intentional life bringing you increasing Abundance, Liberation and Freedom.
