Kink.com Needs Your Support
An informational hearing has been scheduled for March 8 at San Francisco City Hall from 10-12:30. Kink.com needs lots of people to show up and support Kink.com's right to be in business.

Kink.com is facing community opposition for their purchase of San Francisco's State Armory and Arsenal building, a 200,000-square-foot landmarked building in the Mission District. Kink.com is an online fetish film company devoted to bondage and sadomasochism, and the area is zoned for this sort of use.

According to ABC local news, a protest was organized on February 7th by a group called the Mission Armory Collective who marched in front of the Armory. Though Kink.com has only moved 9 blocks from their former location, a few neighbors are reacting badly:

Sam Ruiz, Mission Armory Collective: "That is not the appropriate place for Kink.com. It's in the hub of a residential community, the gateway to the Mission District."

Marc Holcomb, San Francisco Resident: "Just having the thought in my head that I'm right next to this, living right next to this is nasty." http://abclocal.go.com/kgo/story?section=local&id=5017811

Please take the time to support Kink.com!

NCSF

The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom is a national organization committed to creating a political, legal, and social environment in the United States that advances equal rights of consenting adults who practice forms of alternative sexual expression. NCSF is primarily focused on the rights of consenting adults in the SM-leather-fetish, swing, and polyamory communities, who often face discrimination because of their sexual expression.

Consent Counts: We're Making a Difference

  • Completed Federal and State Legal Research
  • Developed Educational Programs and Outreach Materials

About Consent Counts

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.

  • BDSM is prosecuted as assault in the U.S., even when it is consensual.
  • No state or appellate court has allowed consent as a defense to assault in BDSM cases.
  • Consent Counts is a nationwide project to decriminalize consensual BDSM.
 
Program Goals:
Consent Counts
is a nationwide project to decriminalize consensual BDSM through education, advocacy, legal actions and lobbying.
