Fifty Shades of Grey Movie - National Coalition for Sexual Freedom

Author: National Coalition for Sexual Freedom
Published: Friday 19th December 2014
Summary: There has been a significant interest in BDSM sparked by the wildly successful Fifty Shades of Grey.


Similar topics appeared in recent TV Shows from CSI to House to Desperate Housewives, and even animated shows such as American Dad.

Furthermore many people, married and otherwise, are discovering and practicing non-monogamy.

From polyamory to swinging to open relationships, a notable percentage of the public are shifting their relationship parameters in an honest and ethical fashion.

These people are taking cues from books like Opening Up and The Ethical Slut, along with TV Shows such as Showtime's Polyamory: Married and Dating.

NCSF's Fifty Shades of Consent palm card: Consent is given before the activity begins, consent is given within the limits set by the participants, and consent can be withdrawn at any time during the activity. If it's not consensual, it's not BDSM!

The NCSF has proven resources and spokespeople who can provide valuable information for your programming:

50 Shades of Grey

A compare and contrast: What the movie got right, what the movie got wrong and what you need to know about kink.

Who, What & How

The kink subculture: What its practitioners like to do, and the kind of people who are kinky.

What is Consent?

Consent is enthusiastic and informed agreement, without coercion or pressure, and is agreed upon while you're of sound mind.

Ethical Non-Monogamy

Open relationships aren't just sexy storybook fantasies. Relationships with more than two people take honesty, effort and ethical agreements.

Persecution of Kinksters

Job discrimination and child custody challenges result in only one-in-three people being "out" about their involvement in kink.

Kink is not a Diagnosis

The American Psychiatric Association agrees that kink is a healthy form of sexual expression.

The NCSF is the national advocate and resource for consenting adults who engage in kink and non-monogamy. The NCSF is a coalition of educational and social groups across America, along with the businesses that serve them and individuals who are kinky. Since its formation in 1997, the NCSF and its programs have significantly changed the way the media, legal and psychiatric professions view kink and non-monogamy.
