Everyone has a story. What’s yours?

NCSF has heard a lot of stories over the past 20 years. Now we want to let others hear what you have to say. Have you been discriminated against because you are kinky or non-monogamous? We want to hear from you. We also want to hear your story if you’ve been outed or if you’ve outed yourself as a fetishist, cross-dresser, leatherman/woman, or because you’re in a polyamorous or Lifestyle relationship. We also want to hear if you've been involved in a consent incident in a BDSM or non-monogamous encounter.

Tell us your story and we will share it anonymously on www.ncsfreedom.org. Please fill out one of these short surveys for each story you’d like to tell us about.

To make sure you get to choose the details to include, we will only publicize the information you write in the sections at the end: Tell Us Your Story, What Can Be Done and How Do You Feel About It? For liability reasons, we cannot publish any names in your story.

The demographic information will only be used if there is a qualitative analysis done of the information - it won't be included with your story.

* 1. What is your gender?

* 2. What is your sexual orientation?

* 3. What is your race/ethnicity? (you can check more than one)

* 4. What is your age?

* 5. What is your yearly household income (before taxes)?

* 6. What is your yearly personal income (before taxes)?

* 8. In what country do you currently reside?

* 9. What experience do you want to tell us about?

* 10. When did this happen?

* 11. At that time, did you have any experience with an educational or social group, event or website for kinky or non-monogamous people?

* 12. Now do you have any experience with an educational or social group, event or website for kinky or non-monogamous people?

* 13. Tell us your story...

* 14. What Can Be Done? What did you do to respond? How did it work? Thinking back now, is there anything you would do differently? Is there anything others could have done to help you? How would they have known about your need for help? If you had advice for someone who is now beginning to be in that same situation, what advice would you give?

* 15. How Do You Feel About It? What was the most painful part and how did you cope with those feelings? Did anything good come from the experience? Do you think it was a unique experience or one other people are having? Is there anything you need now?

Thank you. We understand that telling your story may cause you feelings of discomfort or distress. If you would like to talk to someone, please contact NCSF’s Incident Reporting & Response at 917-848-6544 to speak to Susan Wright and get a referral for a professional who is kink aware.
