Beginning February 2011, new or updated KAP providers are requested to self-identify their Kink Awareness level in their listing.
KAP users have requested this feature in order to better understand the background and knowledge level of KAP Providers listed in our directory. This self-supplied rating information will be displayed in provider listings and is also available as a search field if desired.
The following definitions are used:
Kink-Friendly = open and non-judgemental of kink concepts and lifestyles, with general knowledge only.
Kink-Aware = have specific knowledge of kink concepts and lifestyles, have researched and educated themselves in these areas. May have some previous experienced providing professional services to individuals with these interests.
Kink-Knowledgeable = have previously provided professional services to multiple individuals in the lifestyle. Very experienced in kink concepts and lifestyle.
