NCSF's Incident Reporting & Response was created to provide assistance to individuals and groups within the BDSM, swinging and poly communities who are experiencing discrimination or need assistance because of their interests and activities.
Kink Aware Professionals provides the community with referrals to psychotherapeutic, medical, legal and other professionals who are knowledgeable about and sensitive to diverse expressions of sexuality.
NCSF is leading a major national campaign—Consent Counts—to change the laws and police practices that our communities now endure, and to establish that consent is available as a defense in criminal BDSM prosecutions.
The DSM-V Revision project is attempting to depathologize BDSM in the APA Diagnostic and Statistic Manual. Many in our community are subject to discrimination because current APA guidelines say BDSM is indicative of mental illness.
