Susan Wright founded the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom in 1997, and currently serves as spokesperson. Susan has presented over a hundred seminars for professional organizations, Universities and community groups on discrimination against kinky people, BDSM vs. Abuse, and the media influence on the persecution of alternative sexuality.
Susan has also conducted several important surveys documenting discrimination and violence against BDSM practitioners as well as consent practices and attitudes. She directed the successful DSM-5 Revision Project that helped convince the American Psychiatric Association to depathologize consensual BDSM behaviors in 2013, and she coordinated the SM Policy Reform Project for the National Organization for Women (NOW) which resulted in rescinding their anti-SM policy at their national conference in 1999 (www.ncsfreedom.org).
