      Woodhull Foundation presents: A Celebration of Sexual Freedom

      On August 15th, The Woodhull Freedom Foundation is hosting a fundraiser on behalf of their efforts to make sex significantly safer. Currently, anything other than traditional monogamous married heterosexual sex is not safe sex, because there is one type of risk that there is no protection for: Legal risk. A Florida woman lost custody of her 12 year old daughter because the judge wanted the child to live in a non-lesbian world. The child was removed from her comfortable home and from a reportedly excellent mother to live with her father in a trailer park. Her father had a long history of violent and abusive behavior and had served eight years in prison for the murder of his first wife. A Tennessee woman had her 3 year old daughter taken from her because she was married and in a polyamorous relationship with another man. The child was put in the care of the paternal grandmother. The father had run out on her when he learned that she was pregnant and had no relationship with the child. A California woman who worked as an EMT was fired from her job when her employee learned that she was a swinger. In the land of the free, many Americans fear losing their jobs, their housing, or their children because of their legal sexual practices with other consenting adults. A 1998 survey by Susan Wright and Larry Iannotti found that 30 percent of regular BDSM practitioners said they'd faced discrimination, a quarter had lost a job, and three percent had lost a child in a custody fight. If someone is part of the gay community, or into BDSM, swinging, polyamory or any other non-traditional mode of sexual expression or works in a wide range of sexually oriented businesses such as adult films, exotic dancing or as a sex worker — they know firsthand the condemnation that many in our culture direct at them. But today, more and more people are beginning to stand up for the right to express their sexuality with other consenting adults without harassment or discrimination. Woodhull Freedom Foundation works to support those efforts. The Woodhull Freedom Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit corporation, named for 19th century activist Victoria Woodhull, works to affirm sexual freedom as a fundamental human right. WFF fights to protect and advance freedom of speech and sexual expression. WFF promotes sexuality as a positive personal, social and moral value through research, advocacy, activism, education and outreach.
