It’s Time to Recenter Kink and BDSM as Part of Radical Queer History

on Friday, 09 November 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, Media Updates


Engaging in kink as a queer person today is part of that practice. It is a celebration of our sexuality, but it also connects us to a community that is larger than us. Queer and kinky communities can continue to thrive and live on, even as they adapt to better fit the social temperature of the time, in order to preserve the community’s history and future. And in doing so, we allow for this part of our history to carry forward, as it should.

February 28 is Metamour Day!

on Friday, 09 November 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

It’s time to add a new holiday to your calendar! February 28 will henceforth be known as Metamour Day.


This holiday is meant to foster positive relationships between you and your metamours, whatever that might look like. It is not about forced compersion. It’s about communal appreciation within our family structures. Metamour Day is a celebration of the unique and special relationships between metamours.


As society evolves and non-monogamy becomes more common, the traditional nuclear family structure is constantly being challenged. Metamours are often taking on important family roles such as cohabitators and parental figures.


It is important to acknowledge and appreciate the special role a metamour has in your partners’ lives and tangentially (or directly) your own life. As a non-monogamous person, it is worthwhile to celebrate that relationship in order to continue to demonstrate the supportive and beneficial impact of non-monogamy on our lives.


Please join the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom in celebrating this day in February!

“I didn’t really think that I would ever get married, and then I just met this wonderful person,” the woman says. “But then I remember having a conversation with my husband, and saying I really just miss connecting with other people in more intimate and even romantic ways.”


Yeah, You’ve Probably Dabbled In BDSM. You Just Didn’t Know You Were Doing It

A few years back, a group of Canadian researchers decided to look into just how often people practice kinky sex. Just about half of the individuals they surveyed said they were into it. Turns out, BDSM was big with group. Nearly 47 percent of the women and nearly 60 percent of the men said they had fantasized about dominating someone sexually. Slightly more women, and slightly less men, were into the idea of being dominated.

The Canadians aren’t alone. The Kinsey Institute has found that roughly 30 percent of American adults are into spanking, 20 percent like to play with restraints, and 13 percent of the public has dabbled with whips and floggers.

Republicans and Democrats Don’t Just Disagree About Politics. They Have Different Sexual Fantasies.

Whether we identify as Republican, Democrat, independent or something else, we’re not just turned on by taboos, but also by trying new and different things in general. For example, it’s human nature to be titillated by novelty, mixing up what we do, where we do it and whom we do it with. Most of us seek to meet a range of psychological needs in our fantasies, too, such as feeling desired, validated and competent. And the vast majority of us are fantasizing about our current romantic partners far more than we’re fantasizing about Hollywood celebrities, porn stars and politicians.

“People have been non-monogamous, and practising polyamory, for as long as there have been humans,” says Dr Heath Schechinger, a psychologist at the University of California, Berkeley. Before you dismiss the notion as promiscuity slapped with a fancy label or as a neat excuse for the philandering type to justify a wandering eye, consider this: the fourth most popular relationship Google search in 2017 was ‘what is a poly relationship?’ The short answer? It’s the practice of maintaining multiple sexual and/or romantic relationships with the consent of everyone involved.


I thought polyamory would be no-strings fun. Now I’m in three relationships

Boundaries are also important, especially around cheating. I’m sure a lot of people think that you can’t cheat in polyamorous relationships because you can sleep with multiple people, but it’s breaking the agreement you’ve made with your partners.
