Once again, National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) will be a beneficiary of both Leather Pride Night (LPN) auction and Folsom Street East (FSE) street fair in New York City during Leather Pride Weekend in June. NCSF staff members will be present to proudly represent NCSF at both of these outstanding community events:

The 27th annual Leather Pride Night Auction will take place on Saturday, June 19th, 2010 at Splash! from 6-10 PM. Leather Pride Night is sponsored by nine NYC S&M-leather- fetish organizations: Imperial Court of New York, Iron Guard BC, Lesbian Sex Mafia, MAsT Metro NY, MetroBearsNY, New York boys of Leather, Pariah's MC, The Eulenspiegel Society, ONYX New York and many other committed individuals.

On Sunday, June 20th, Folsom Street East will be running an SM-leather-fetish block party on West 28th Street (between 10th and 11th Avenues) in front of M2 and the Eagle NYC Bar from 2-8pm. Over 10,000 leathermen and women cap off Leather Pride Weekend with the largest outdoor festival of its kind on the East Coast. Visit the NCSF table to find out more about NCSF projects and programs.

This year, NCSF's Spokesperson and Founder Susan Wright will be awarded FSE's Sexual Freedom Award during the street fair. In addition to establishing the group in 1997, Susan was also instrumental in reforming the National Organization for Women's anti-SM policy in 1999, and created the SM vs. Abuse policy statement through the Leather Leadership Conference in 1997-98. Susan is a member of the organizing committees for Smarter Sex NYC, the Sex Positive Journalism Awards, and the advocacy committee for the American Association for Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists. She has also published over 25 books, both fiction and non-fiction.

Come see NCSF at both Leather Pride Night and Folsom Street East! NCSF is very grateful to the NYC BDSM-leather-fetish community for raising a significant amount of our budget every year to further our advocacy and education goals.

Have the Feds gone soft on porn?

Mother Jones

On Tuesday, a group of anti-porn activists and scholars arrived on Capitol Hill to brief members of Congress and their staffs and to call for beefed-up federal enforcement of obscenity laws. They weren't there to fret about the pornographers of old: the loveable chauvinist Hugh Hefner and his scantily clad bunnies, or even the not-so-loveable-but-occasionally-principled First Amendment crusader, Hustler publisher Larry Flynt. No, they had come to alert Congress to websites like GagFactor.com, whose teasers alone are way more graphic than anything Hefner ever published, and whose content doesn't portend a spirited First Amendment defense.

Kinky Sex: When Did BDSM Become So Wildly Popular?

on Wednesday, 09 June 2010. Posted in Media Updates

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.
