THE ALTERNATIVE SEXUALITIES HEALTH RESEARCH ALLIANCE
Because everyone deserves quality healthcare
Welcome to TASHRA
TASHRA is a community-based 501(c)(3) non-profit with the important mission of improving the health and healthcare services of individuals who are involved in alternative sexualities.
As champions of Kink competent healthcare,
TASHRA supports empirical research on this misunderstood and often pathologized sexual-minority.
Our vision is a world where fear of prejudice and discrimination does not prevent people involved in a broad variety of sexual interests and activities from receiving caring, compassionate and competent care from physical and mental health professionals.

The 2021 International
KINK HEALTH SURVEY -
we will keep you posted.
Coming up on October 23/24
Treating kink, BDSM, and other sexually diverse populations requires a more in-depth knowledge of not only supervision styles, but also how working with sexually diverse clients may present differently in the course of their treatment and your supervision with that clinician. When you are supervising a clinician who also identifies as sexually diverse, the supervisor’s cultural humility is key to ethical supervision. Finally, if the supervisor and supervisee are both members of the kink community and / or are treating these populations, special care is needed.
We are pleased to announce that the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors and Therapists (AASECT) has approved TASHRA as a Continuing Education Institutional Provider through 2022.

TASHRA began in 2012 out of a need to expand knowledge about those who are erotically diverse, such as kinky people, BDSM practitioners, and those with sexual interests that are out of the mainstream.
