Legal Cases

Legal CasesIt is extremely important for the SM- Leather-Fetish communities to have an understanding of the laws that may affect us. The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom has been fighting for your rights for the past 14 years. We are changing the way society views kinky people. 
 
The Legal Cases area contains copies of court documents, motions and letters pertaining to relevant court cases.

Violence and Discrimination Survey - 2008

Violence and Discrimination Survey - 2008The 2008 Survey of Violence & Discrimination Against Sexual Minorities found significant discrimination and persecution against BDSM practitioners due to the social stigma attached to their sexual behavior.

With over 3,000 respondents, 37.5% indicated that they had either been discriminated against or experienced some form of harassment or violence.

Communications Decency Act

Communications Decency Act (CDA) Information and ResourcesIn 1997, the Supreme Court struck down part of the Communications Decency Act (CDA), but left in place the statutes deeming that sexually-oriented material that is "patently offensive under local community standards" is not protected by the First Amendment unless its author can prove "redeeming social value." NCSF has fought CDA's obscenity statutes on the grounds they violate the free speech of Internet content providers and inhibit the discussion of sexual issues on the Internet among consenting adults.
