Hi everyone! Welcome to the A to Z of Sex. I’m Dr Lori Beth Bisbey and I am your host. We are working our way through the erotic alphabet one letter at a time. Just a reminder this podcast deals with adult content, so if you don’t have total privacy, you might want to put on your headphones. Today the letter is N and N is for National Coalition for Sexual Freedom.
The National coalition for sexual freedom Mission Statement is:
The NCSF is committed to creating a political, legal and social environment in the US that advances equal rights for consenting adults who engage in alternative sexual and relationship expressions. The NCSF aims to advance the rights of, and advocate for consenting adults in the BDSM-Leather-Fetish, Swing, and Polyamory Communities. We pursue our vision through direct services, education, advocacy, and outreach, in conjunction with our partners, to directly benefit these communities.
Joining me to talk about the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom and other topics is D. Choc Trei Henderson.
She is Ms Southeast Leatherfest 2018 and a director/southeast regional coalition partner lead for the NCSF. She is executive producer of the first inaugural Southeast Consent Summit. Choc is 2019 president of Leather Houses of |Color Coalition and was recently conferred as one of the newest directors for the Leather Archives and Museum.
Other community service includes the Executive Director, VP and treasurer roles to re-launch ONYX Pearls South East and is presently bylaws Chair. She has been treasurer of the Leather Leadership Conference and active in many local groups. Her home leather bar is the Atlanta Eagle.
The company she founded, 1st CFI, Inc is her vehicle to support education for traditional and non-traditional individuals. She leverages and MBA and two decade career in finance to support her family and friends based in a life of faith.
The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom is a resource for the members of the kink, poly and Lifestyle communities and for people seeking information about them.
If you engage in BDSM, fetishes or non-monogamy practices, and you are being persecuted or discriminated against because of it, please contact NCSF through the Get Help Now. If you need help removing kink or non-monogamy as a barrier to public services, please contact NCSF. If your group or business needs help with outreach to local officials, please contact NCSF.If you or your group needs help with a consent violation or sexual assault, please contact NCSF. GET HELP NOW! The issue must openly, directly, and specifically relate to BDSM, swing or poly activities between consenting adults; in other words, the problems you face must relate to or be caused from your involvement in BDSM, swing or poly. NCSF is not legal aid, nor do we offer specific legal advice for individuals. NCSF is a resource for the members of the kink, poly and Lifestyle communities and for people seeking information about them. NCSF provides publicly available information on kink and nonmonogamy for consenting adults.
We spoke about the Kink Aware Professionals list which includes listings for mental health professionals, medical doctors, legal professionals, accountants who are aware of kink, alternative lifestyles as well as gender and sexual diversity and who can provide services without a negative bias.
They produce the consent counts program.
The Consent Counts project involves the BDSM communities in a nationwide education and activism program coordinated and led by the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom. This multifaceted campaign includes a comprehensive is analysis of current laws and court decisions, the development of legal arguments for changing the laws, participating in court cases, and ultimately, through lobbying, education and grass-roots activism, changing state laws and the way the public and the courts view BDSM. An important element of the project also includes an Educational Outreach Program (EOP) to educate our own communities of the current state of the law, of the effort NCSF is undertaking and to involve them in our strategic planning process and development of “best practices” by which we can protect ourselves and facilitate change.
We talked about the importance of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom and then moved on to talk about the Consent Summit happening 23-24 February. We talked about why consent is so important and all the topics at the summit including a panel on legal issues, domestic violence, consensual non-consent, cross-cultural issues and context in consent.
We also talked about Consent After Dark which is the evening event where attendees can put into practice their consent gaining skills. There will be a dessert and canapes activity where people can negotiate eating off of the models’ bodies and body painting with chocolate body paint.
