The Erotic Awakening Podcast Network was created as an educational and entertainment resource for
the alternative, kink, and sex positive community.
Adventures in Sexuality (AIS) is the Central Ohio Based, Social and Educational Fun Group! We are here to bring support, excitement, interest, and a forum for those who have their interests in both open and honest relationships / polyamory and Kink / B.D.S.M. Furthermore, this is a group for those who express themselves in whatever “Kink” or manifestation they desire.
The National Coalition for Sexual Freedom (NCSF) is committed to creating a political, legal and social environment in the US that advances equal rights for consenting adults who engage in alternative sexual and relationship expressions. The NCSF aims to advance the rights of, and advocate for consenting adults in the BDSM-Leather-Fetish, Swing, and Polyamory Communities. We pursue our vision through direct services, education, advocacy, and outreach, in conjunction with our partners, to directly benefit these communities.
The Leather Archives and Museum is dedicated to the compilation, preservation, and maintenance of leather, kink, and fetish lifestyles.

The Human Rights Campaign represents a force of more than 1.5 million members and supporters nationwide — all working to achieve equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Americans. Founded in 1980, HRC advocates on behalf of LGBT Americans, mobilizes grassroots actions in diverse communities, invests strategically to elect fair-minded individuals to office and educates the public about LGBT issues.
The It Get’s Better Project has a mission: to communicate to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender youth around the world that it gets better, and to create and inspire the changes needed to make it better for them. In September 2010, syndicated columnist and author Dan Savage created a YouTube video with his partner Terry Miller to inspire hope for young people facing harassment. In response to a number of students taking their own lives after being bullied in school, they wanted to create a personal way for supporters everywhere to tell LGBT youth that, yes, it does indeed get better.
Looking Through.Us is a site designed to take on the meat of the issue, relationships. We cannot tell you how “to do” non-monogamy, only offer you some tools and skills to find a path that is correct for you and your partners. There is no one right way to be polyamorous or non-monogamous. If we can help you to learn from some of the difficult and painful lessons we have suffered, then we will be fulfilled.
