How to Become a KAP Professional

If you are professional that might be interested in having people be referred to your practice from this site, read the full requirements and, if you qualify please register or login, then submit your information. Please note that submissions that don’t follow the guidelines below may be rejected.

Please be aware that by making a entry in this directory, you may be found by search engines such as Google, Yahoo or other. This is a open public directory. 

Requirements for KAP Professionals

Acceptance of Diverse Sexualities
Every professional who is listed on the KAP referral list must believe that alternative forms of erotic play can be healthy and proper expressions of sexuality. Some of the forms of sexuality we are referring to here are SM, BD, DS, leather, and fetish. In short, a professional must agree that any form of consensual sexuality between adults can be considered healthy if practiced in a safe and responsible manner.


Geographic Areas
KAP accepts submissions from kink-aware professionals throughout the world. Most listings are in the United States.


Types of Professionals
KAP includes the following professionals in the referral listing:

  • Psychologists
  • Counselors and Therapists
  • Lawyers
  • Doctors
  • Health and Wellness Practitioners (non-M.D.)
  • Accounting and Finance
  • Life Coaches
  • Spiritual Advisors/Wedding Officiators
  • Web Design/IT
  • Internet-Based Businesses

If your profession does not fall into one of the categories above, you can list in the "other professional" catagory. We know many other types of professionals would like to be listed, but these categories have been carefully selected as those professions in which a kink-friendly attitude can dramatically affect the effectiveness of the service to the community. You may choose to be listed in up to two categories.

All listings will be dated when posted and a listing will remain active for approximately one year. Due to a large number of listings that have not been kept up with current information by the listed professionals, we have had to place a time limit on postings to ensure a reasonable amount of accuracy for our site visitors. But as long as you renew your listing every year, you can remain posted on KAP as long as you wish. You will receive one email a few weeks prior to your listing being deleted. If you do not return to the site to renew your listing in a timely manner, your entry will be deleted and no longer available to site visitors.

We Reserve the Right to Refuse Listings from Anyone
Kink Aware Professionals (KAP) reserves the right to refuse listings from any professional for any reason and reserves the right to remove any listing of any professional at any time at the sole discretion of KAP.

KAP Approval Guidelines
Kink aware professionals must offer professional services for adults and be tolerant of those who engage in alternative sexual and relationship expressions. Kink aware professionals must support informed consent as the basis of ethical BDSM practices.

KAP doesn't allow:

  • No solicitation for sexual services
  • No minors (under 18) or animals in a sexual context
  • No solicitation for illegal activities
  • No sharing anyone's personal, identifying, confidential or proprietary information
  • No postings the primary purpose of which is to drive traffic to a website

If you do not receive a confirming email after having made your listing submission, please check any SPAM folders or filters that may be associated with your email address. 

KAP submissions are reviewed and approved as volunteer time allows, so please be patient. Your listing will be posted as soon as possible. Thank you for your participation in this important referral resource!
