This site promotes the concept of “BDSM Rights”

  We hold the belief that people who's sexuality or relationship preferences include Bondage and Discipline, Dominance and Submission, or Sadism and Masochism (“BDSM”) deserve the same human rights as everyone else, and should not be discriminated against for pursuing BDSM with consenting adults.

This page links to off site ongoing campaigns, BDSM-specific organizations, other human rights groups, and documents.

Campaigns related to specific abuses of the human rights of BDSM people.


“The Home Office has begun a process to make it illegal to possess extreme adult images. … Backlash is the campaigning organisation bringing together individuals and activist groups to oppose this legislation.”


“On Wednesday 26th July 2000 in the UK began the start of a violation of human rights by an employer. So far it has resulted in the dismissal of someone because of so called 'inappropriate activities', that is involvement in BDSM. This list was set up as a place where people can be kept up to date with the progress of that case, find out how they can help with the 'fight' and as a general resource for others, in both the UK and other parts of the world, that find themselves in similar positions.”
