National Coalition for Sexual Freedom: Are you ready for the Fifty Shades of Gray Movie?

Does your media agency have resources for these special interest pieces?  Contact the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom for interviews and information on kink and open relationships. NCSF is the national advocate for consensual adult sexual expression. 

 

Why kink?

 

There has been a significant interest in BDSM sparked by the wildly successful Fifty Shades of Grey.  Similar topics appeared in recent TV Shows from CSI to House to Desperate Housewives, and even animated shows such as American Dad.   

 

Furthermore many people, married and otherwise, are discovering and practicing non-monogamy. From polyamory to swinging to open relationships, a notable percentage of the public are shifting their relationship parameters in an honest and ethical fashion. These people are taking cues from books like Opening Up and The Ethical Slut, along with TV Shows such as Showtime’sPolyamory: Married and Dating. 

 

The NCSF has proven resources and spokespeople who can provide valuable information for your programming:

 

  • “50 Shades of Grey”

A compare and contrast: What the movie got right, what the movie got wrong and what you need to know about kink.

 

  • “Who, What & How”

The kink subculture: What its practitioners like to do, and the kind of people who are kinky.

 

  • “What is Consent?”

Consent is enthusiastic and informed agreement, without coercion or pressure, and is agreed upon while you’re of sound mind.

 

  • “Ethical Non-Monogamy”

Open relationships aren’t just sexy storybook fantasies.  Relationships with more than two people take honesty, effort and ethical agreements. 

 

  • “Persecution of Kinksters”

 Job discrimination and child custody challenges result in only one-in-three people being “out” about their involvement in kink.

 

  • “Kink is not a Diagnosis”

The American Psychiatric Association agrees that kink is a healthy form of sexual expression.

 

The NCSF is the national advocate and resource for consenting adults who engage in kink and non-monogamy. The NCSF is a coalition of educational and social groups across America, along with the businesses that serve them and individuals who are kinky. Since its formation in 1997, the NCSF and its programs have significantly changed the way the media, legal and psychiatric professions view kink and non-monogamy.
