Media Outreach

Media Outreach Program

The Media Outreach Program is designed to reach outward to educate media and respond to media stories about alternative sex. In addition it is designed to reach inward to our own constituents to teach and train them in how to respond and deal with media effectively.

Consent Counts!

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.

DSM-V Revision Project

DSM-V Revision ProgramThe 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.

Education Outreach

It's possible you'd see a woman bound to a pillar in the middle of the room with Saran wrap, her every curve hugged close by the cling. You might see people taking turns shocking each other with an ultraviolet wand. And you might leave with bruises on your ass that take weeks to heal -- but not if you don't ask for them.
