Finding the Right Fit: Alternative Sexuality Communities
Description: When you have a client who is exploring a diverse relationship or sexuality, one of the ways you can provide support is to help guide them through experiences within an alt sex community that offers educational and social opportunities. This panel delves into the similarities and differences between various alt sex communities, including polyamory, sex positive, swing lifestyle, BDSM/kink, leather and fetish communities. While these communities tend to face similar obstacles, such as access to knowledgeable and nonjudgmental professionals, they also can provide a variety of experiences depending on your clients’ needs. 

Objective(s): At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to: understand the differences and similarities between alternative sexuality communities for adults; find out about resources that are available in each community and how to access them; learn the differences between each community when it comes to consent and cultural norms.
