Core KinkForAll Rules

Here, in bullet point form, is the essence of KinkForAll. On the wiki, you can read further explanations of these rules, and learn more about them in our Frequently Asked Questions.

  • No spectators, only participants. Attendees must give a talk or presentation, or help with one. This is called sharing and we like it.
  • Every aspect of an event’s organization is transparent and participant-driven. Anyone can organize a local KinkForAll.
  • Introduce yourself using only 3 words at the start of the event.
  • Anyone can present on any topic with any relation to sexuality.
  • If you want to give a presentation, you must write your topic and name in an open session slot on the schedule grid.
  • All presentations are scheduled the day they happen—there are no pre-scheduled sessions or keynote addresses.
  • The time frame is strict. Session times are purposefully a short 20 minutes in order to keep the day and the discussions moving.
  • There will be as many presentations at a time as facilities allow for.
  • At a busy event, give one and only one presentation.
  • Sessions will go on as long as they have to or until they run into another filled presentation slot, whichever comes first.
  • Like all public spaces, you are expected to treat participants at KinkForAll in a courteous and respectful manner.
  • KinkForAll will be talked about, blogged, recorded, photographed and logged in order to create, share, and distribute a repository of knowledge and experience. Participants always have the option to opt out of being photographed or otherwise recorded.
  • Presentations promoting specific commercial products, organizations, or companies are discouraged.
  • Presenters are responsible for making sure that notes, slides, audio, and/or video of their presentations or sessions are published on the Web for the benefit of all and those who can’t attend.
  • KinkForAll is an informational space. Personal, explicit sexual activities as a form of private play is not permitted. In other words, KinkForAll is a place to talk with one another, not play with one another.
