LOS ANGELES — On the heels of celebrating the one-year anniversary of their Journal of Positive Sexuality launched in February 2015, the Center for Positive Sexuality teams up with the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom, a known champion of sexual freedoms and privacy rights for all adults engaging in safe, sane, consensual behaviors. With similar visions, but slightly different audiences, the two groups’ messages of sex positivity, consent, education, and acceptance can be shared more broadly.
Center for Positive Sexuality Director of Research Dr. DJ Williams reports, “With this sponsorship the Journal will reach a wider audience and acquire more submissions to publish. This will also improve our research as we’ll have an outlet to promote our studies and surveys. Partnering with NCSF makes sense. They have a broad audience who share similar interests.”
Established in 2007, the Center for Positive Sexuality received 501c3 Non-Profit status in 2013 and has been presenting educational panels to local colleges, universities, and professionals debunking myths and replacing them with truths and lived experiences on range of issues such as kink/BDSM, non-monogamy, sex and aging, sex and disability, gender spectrum, and others.
The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) was formed in 1997 by a small group led by Susan Wright under the auspices of the New York SM Activists. The goal was to fight for sexual freedom and privacy rights for all adults who engage in safe, sane and consensual behavior. Today, NCSF has over 50 Coalition Partners made up of groups and businesses who serve BDSM, swing and polyamory practitioners. Over the years, NCSF has formed alliances with other organizations that defend sexual freedom rights: Free Speech Coalition, the ACLU, American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists, Society for the Scientific Study of Sexuality, National Gay and Lesbian Task Force, and the Gay and Lesbian Activist Alliance, among others.
In its first year of publication, the open-access Journal of Positive Sexuality published three issues with a total of 12 articles, reaching over 30 countries worldwide.
The Journal of Positive Sexuality is free to access and download, and is a multi-disciplinary, peer-reviewed and easy to read (articles are no longer than 8 pages) all from a sex positive lens.
