BDSM, Fetish and Polyamory Disclaimer
We do not support, condone or endorse any form of violence or non-consensual acts of any kind.
We support the rights of consenting adults to engage in alternative sexual and relationship expressions.
Within the realm of mutual consent, we believe that consenting adults in the BDSM-Leather-Fetish, Kink, Swing, and Polyamory Communities can enjoy these activities in healthy ways and deserve freedom of expression. Further, these people deserve to have educational opportunities made available to them.
By consuming any of our materials and or by engaging in any of these activities you, solely, assume all risks of doing so. While we endeavor to provide helpful, educational resources, it is only general information. No guarantee is made or implied that it is suitable for you. Laws and community standards vary from location to location, and these activities may not be suitable for certain people due certain medical or mental health concerns, or if you face legal risks of certain kinds (including but not limited to risks related to divorce, child custody and employment issues) or if it would not be advisable for you for other known or unknown reasons. It is up to you to do your own due diligence and make your own decisions. You should not rely solely on information from us.
You alone are responsible for the results of your actions, attitudes and behavior.
For information about how consensual BDSM, Fetish, polyamory and alternative sexual and relationship expressions are distinct and different from abuse and violence, please consult the website of the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF). www.ncsfreedom.org NCSF provides education to law enforcement, courts, mental health professionals and others in these matters.
