CineKink Tenth Annual Kinky Film Festival

CineKink Announces Dates for Tenth Annual Kinky Film Festival
February 26-March 3, 2013

Scheduled for February 26-March 3, 2013, the tenth annual CineKink NYC will feature a specially-curated program of films and videos that celebrate and explore a wide diversity of sexuality. In addition to screenings, plans for the festival also include a short film competition, audience choice awards, a special adult entertainment showcase, and a gala kick-off event, along with retrospective screenings commemorating a decade’s worth of kinky programming. A national tour will follow, showcasing audience favorites from the NYC festival selections.

Billing itself as “the kinky film festival,” the event is presented by CineKink, an organization dedicated to the recognition and encouragement of sex-positive and kink-friendly depictions in film and television. With offerings drawn from both the independent cinema world and the adult, works presented at CineKink NYC will range from documentary to drama, comedy to experimental, slightly spicy to quite explicit–and everything in between.

“It’s so amazing to me that we’ve made it to the decade marker,” said Lisa Vandever, Co-Founder and Director of CineKink. “Looking back on all the films we’ve presented since 2003, it’s incredibly gratifying that we’ve been able to connect such smart and sexy works, and such talented filmmakers, with an appreciative, like-minded audience. And we’re looking forward to another year of it!”

The organization is currently seeking works for CineKink/2013, with a call for entries open until December 11, 2012. The festival line-up and schedule for CineKink NYC will be announced in January.

First international Sex Coaching survey conducted by Sex Coach U

We have the rare privilege to produce a peer-reviewed article for an esteemed journal in our field on the topic of SEX COACHING. With such a broad scope, we thought it would be insightful and impactful to conduct a brief survey among those who self identify as a “sex coach” and to ask a few detailed questions (34).

Please help us to substantiate our approaches, differentiate our uniqueness, and to celebrate this new form of sexuality education/counseling/coaching for clients around the world. If you would like to talk to us personally, our emails and phone numbers are below to set up a Skype or phone call.

Emerging Leaders Program

The Kink Academy Emerging Leaders (EL) program is a leadership development program which enables newer kink/alternative/leather community members from across the country to participate in problem-solving work groups, network with peers, gain an inside look into community structure, and have an opportunity to serve the community in a leadership capacity. It puts participants on the fast track to event volunteerism as well as other related organizations.

The EL program kicks off with a webinar in January. Afterward, it grows and develops in an online learning and networking environment for the year.  The program culminates with a poster session presentation to display the results of the project planning work of each group at some national event, preferably the LLC or a Flea or some larger national event.

Participants commit to participating in all aspects of the program.  Participants may be offered an opportunity to serve on a committee, task-force or work-group as well as other groups upon completion of program.  However, appointments are not guaranteed.

The program is limited to no more than 20 participants each year.
