Whether kink is a part of your work, an opportunity to relax and have fun, an integral piece of your identity, a 24/7 lifestyle, or something you explore privately, you deserve to thrive.

 

The kink and erotically diverse community have paved the way for new forms of connection, sensation, trauma-informed self exploration and healing. 

 

Have you ever felt that your erotic interests or approaches to self exploration might be judged or cause for discrimination?

 

How do you stay up-to-date on the safest ways to play?

 

We offer our research to you and your community healthcare providers to help you understand how to take care of yourselves and each other. 

 

Our hope is that our research findings on kink health influence larger systems that make healthcare policies and influence how kink and fetish are seen.
