The World-Changing Kink Community

“The kink communities have provided adult education about consent and safer sex for decades, and we’re very good at teaching people how to communicate about their sexual desires and relationship needs. That’s why the mainstream has been turning to kink lately to understand the dynamics of consent: when is it freely given freely, how to withdraw consent, and how to set your own boundaries. Our kink organizations are also setting an example with our consent policies and consequences for non-consensual actions. Kinksters should feel pride in our community. We are fighting for sexual freedom and bodily autonomy, which are essential for a free and equitable society. Check out the Leather Archives & Museum and the Carter/Johnson Library to find out more about our history and how kinksters are changing the world for the better.”
