NCSF—The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom

Is the only national organization that protects the sexual freedom rights for Kinky and non-monogamous people.

The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom is committed to creating a political, legal, and social environment in the United States that advances the equal rights of consenting adults who practice forms of alternative sexual and relationship expression. NCSF advances the rights and advocates for consenting adults in the SM-Leather-Fetish, swing, and polyamory communities. We pursue our vision through direct services, education, advocacy, and outreach in conjunction with our partner organizations to directly benefit these communities.

NCSF is fighting discrimination, societal disapproval and even criminal prosecution.
