A Call to Action on June 1st—The First Ever Sex Worker Lobby Day

on Tuesday, 15 May 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom urges everyone in our communities to join us in supporting the first ever Sex Worker Lobby Day on June 1st in Washington, D.C. NCSF will be participating with sex workers in Federal lobbying with Members of Congress. We are also supporting direct action activities that are planned around the country on June 1st and June 2nd.

The recently enacted FOSTA-SESTA laws have directly impacted many people because of the effect on sexual content on the Internet, with platform providers already removing sexual content for fear of criminal prosecution. Sex workers, in particular, have been placed in even more serious danger by the harmful effects of these laws.

All of us want to protect victims of sex trafficking. However, this legislation does not protect victims of sex trafficking and actually places them at greater risk by making it more difficult for them to access sex worker advocacy groups to get help.

The Sex Worker Lobby Day in Washington D.C. is a great opportunity for individuals to discuss important sexual freedom issues with their elected Members of Congress. It is also an opportunity to learn how to advocate to legislators. Lobbying is not a complex or difficult process. With a little training, anyone can do it and we will provide that training. You also don’t have to be out as kinky or a sex worker to join in.

For those of you who have not done lobbying before, this is truly a fascinating experience. You will enjoy it. But more importantly, this is an opportunity for you to make a real difference on issues that affect all of us and that are critically important for sex workers.

Guest Blog: Polyamory and BDSM researchers need your help!

on Friday, 11 May 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

by Chris Deaton
 

We are two graduate researchers out of Arizona State University who are working on BDSM related projects and are looking for additional input from the community. The projects have multiple phases depending on respondent’s status and desire for additional involvement.

 

There is a survey for the polyamorous community looking at various subculture intersections and some basic relationship structure and behavior information. There is also an additional interview component open to polyamorous couples that have been together for more than 10 years. There is a limited amount of participants allowed for this phase and it is focused on two distinct groups; self-identified BDSM members and those that are not. We want to know what you think makes you successful!

 

More information and the survey can be found at can be found at http://polyamory.education.

 

The second project is related to the intersection of BDSM and yoga and the benefits of each. The project is looking at the perceived benefits of both yoga and BDSM; specifically, improved body image, reduced anxiety and depression, and altered states of consciousness. There is an additional interview component open to women who have been practicing yoga and/or BDSM for 2 years or more. 

The survey and contact information can be found at http://links.asu.edu/yogabodysurvey.

Easier With Three

on Saturday, 05 May 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

Slate

The big obstacles in most relationships are in the little details—finances, housework, child and/or pet care, and how to spend free time. Before I lived with my wife’s girlfriend, I might have said that having an extra person would only make the conflicts and disagreements of daily life that much harder to work out. Instead, for our family, we’ve found the opposite is true. Whether we need an extra set of hands, an extra listening ear, another chum to hang out with, or an extra couple of bucks, our family has found that three can be easier, not harder, than two.

Fight in 2018! An Interview With Our Volunteer Coordinator

on Monday, 30 April 2018. Posted in Front Page Headline, NCSF News

by Julian Wolf

 

Was one of your resolutions for 2018 making a difference? Current politics have you ready to stand up and fight for your freedom? Have extra time and a passion for serving your national community? We'd love to have you work with us! Our volunteer coordinator extraordinaire Keira joined me virtually to answer a few questions about how you can help the work of the NCSF actively this year.

 

Thanks for joining us! What sort of help does the NCSF need? Is it always sitting at tables?

 

Keira: Most of the volunteering is actually done via the internet. We are always looking for skilled volunteers for all sorts of projects. We tailor the project to the volunteer. The most common projects require creative skills like writing and graphic design, but we really do find something for everyone. Once we even asked someone to create coloring book pages for us!

 

Do you need experience in advocacy? What if you're new to swingers and/or kink community, should those folks wait to participate?

 

Keira: Again, the projects are tailored to the volunteer. You don't need any experience in advocacy, activism, or community. Just willingness and drive to volunteer.

 

How would one of our constituents go about offering to volunteer with the NCSF?

 

Keira: Our website has a volunteer questionnaire that you need to fill out in order to become a volunteer. The URL is http://ncsfreedom.org/get-involved/volunteer

 

What keeps you volunteering?

 

Keira: I really enjoy the people I work with and I'm proud of the work I do. Additionally, working with NCSF has really improved my self worth and helped me make many positive changes in my personal life.

 

Anything else you'd like to share with us?

Keira: Volunteering for NCSF is done in as low stress a way as possible. So please don't be scared. It's really painless.

 

Thank you so much for your work!

 

Keira has been actively volunteering with the NCSF since 2011 and joined the board in 2014. She was recently featured as a Poly Role Model.
