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 SexualitiesEvery 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 AreasKAP accepts submissions from kink-aware professionals throughout the world. Most listings are in the United States. Types of ProfessionalsKAP 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.
