Election Action Alert from NCSF

BALTIMORE — The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom would like your help in this important election year. Specifically, we would like you to take a few moments to send a short questionnaire on sexual freedom issues to candidates running for office in your State or locality.

NCSF has sent a questionnaire this year to each candidate for the Presidency of the United States – Secretary Hillary Clinton (Democrat), Donald Trump (Republican), Governor Gary Johnson (Libertarian) and Dr. Jill Stein (Green) – asking for their positions on sexual freedom issues that are important to those of us who engage in BDSM, swinging, polyamory and other alternative sexual practices. Their responses (or failure to respond) will be posted on the NCSF website and made available to the media.

NCSF’s Letter to the Presidential Candidates

This election is an especially important one. Sexual consent has become a “front burner” issue. Trafficking laws and other statutes are being misused against our constituencies, and new anti-sex laws are being pushed by sexual bigots. The courts’ interpretations of Lawrence v. Texas continue to narrow this important sexual freedom decision by the U.S. Supreme Court made in 2003. And, the appointment of judges across the country, including as many as three Supreme Court justices, will have a profound effect on our right to practice sex with other consenting adults.

For this reason, NCSF wants to extend the scope of our sexual freedom questionnaires to elective offices in your localities, including candidates for the U.S. Senate and House of Representatives, for governor and for State legislatures. This is where you can help us. We would like you to send copies of the letter and the questionnaire to candidates running for office in your State, in elections where you think the outcome could have an impact on sexual freedom issues such as legislation, judicial appointments and law enforcement practices.

Here is what we would like you to do:

  1. Download our sample letter and edit it to your liking.
  2. Download the questionnaire and send it with your letter to your local and state candidates for office.
  3. Please cc NCSF at ncsfreedom@ncsfreedom.org

Responses will be posted on our website.
