Up Your Alley Fair was Fun in the Sun

San Francisco Bay Times

...NCSF (National Coalition for Sexual Freedom) had the motto: “Your rights, your privacy, your freedom,” and “Kinky is not a diagnosis.” Judy Guerin explained NCSF (ncsfreedom.org) is a national advocacy and lobbying organization dedicated to advancing and protecting the sexual freedom rights of kinksters. “We are currently working to decriminalize BDSM, which is still routinely prosecuted throughout parts of the United States,” she said. They have dealt with 106 criminal prosecutions through their hotline last year. “We are also working to change the BDSM criteria of the American Psychiatric Association so we will no longer be categorized as mentally ill,” she said. They can provide references to kink-friendly doctors and lawyers as well.

Mad Men Gets Kinkier: What Don Draper’s New Fetish Says About Ours

New York Magazine

The season-four premiere of Mad Men didn't just introduce SCDP’s cute new office and Peggy's adorable new haircut, it set up what could be this fetishistic show's kinkiest sexual relationship yet: Don Draper, the “son of a whore,” is regularly sleeping with a prostitute — and asking her to slap him, too. As far as mainstream TV dramas go, this is fairly unprecedented stuff: Masochism is typically treated as joke (Desperate Housewives) or as prelude to grisly murder (CSI). On Mad Men, however, Don’s shocking but brief, slap-happy sexual interlude is not just stratospherically, nakedly Oedipal, it makes sense — both for him, and as a kind of mirror of fans' obsession with the show. Weiner could kill this story line at any minute, but it will be fascinating to see how far he pushes it — and us.

Kinky Sex: When Did BDSM Become So Wildly Popular?

on Wednesday, 09 June 2010. Hits 476


AlterNet

DSM-IV, which was published in 1992, defined kinky behavior as a “paraphilia,” a fancy word for any path to sexual arousal that’s not standard foreplay. The language of DSM-IV “is unclear and sometimes contradictory about whether a paraphilia is a disorder,” says Susan Wright, spokesperson for the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF), an advocacy group for the BDSM, swing and polyamory communities. Although the language hasn’t been finalized, it’s looking as if DSM-V, which will be published in 2013, will make it clear that a person can be kinky without having a disorder.
