The critics, the financial backers, the friends and the family of cast and crew came to see Paul Weitz’s comedy “Trust,” but one more interested observer needed to weigh in, and she wasn’t there to judge which lines got the biggest laughs.
Mistress Kaya, a New York dominatrix, had been hired to help the cast, which includes Zach Braff and Sutton Foster, learn more about how to bring S&M to the stage.
Yale’s president, Richard Levin, and other leading administrators seem to view Sex Week with a “kids will be kids” attitude.

As part of NCSF's website re-design, we've put together a fairly comprehensive survey that is designed to get the most feedback we can from the various people who visit our website. We need to know if the information and resources that NCSF offers is readily available to everyone.
There is also a Kink Aware Professionals (KAP) survey that will determine how NCSF can improve this important free directory. Both surveys will last from September 6-13: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/NCSFWeb

"...Lifetime monogamy may not be the evolved human template. But I'm pretty sure that carefree polyamory isn't either. And at some level, who cares? Rape seems to be pretty "natural", but I'd still like to build social institutions that fight this "natural instinct". The book might have been thought-provoking, but so far, in trying to prove too much, they end up proving nothing at all."
