We uphold the Code of Ethical Standards and Values of several organizations, including: The basic tenets for ethical standards at The World Association of Sexual Health Declaration of Sexual Rights, The Woodhull Sexual Freedom Alliance, The beliefs, credos and practices of other well-regarded organizations, such as SIECUS, Planned Parenthood, World Health Organization and other human/sexual rights groups advocating for sexual rights, sexual wellness and freedom; as well as the American Association of Sexuality Educators, Counselors and Therapists (with the exception of support for those who are trained and certified to use healing and appropriate touch).
We at The KINDer Foundation believe that:
#1) Sexuality is an essential, natural and healthy part of being human, and many of us are lifelong sexual beings, from conception to death.
#2) Sexual rights are human rights and every person has the right to choose how they wish to express their sexuality. Everyone deserves to have the sexual aspects of their life become realized if it is with consent and without intentional harm.
#3) People do not rid parts of themselves as sexual beings; rather, they learn how or how not to embrace and accept those aspects of themselves, understanding that all adult sexual expression is as unique as the individual themselves, and accepting or rejecting the obligation to take responsibility for their sexual actions and the impact of said action upon the self, others and their environment.
#4) Sex-positive professionals serve as role models for sex-positivity and sexual empowerment when giving back to the global community, educate others about sexual well-being, advocate for sexual diversity/inclusivity/equity in all forms, and support the sexual freedom and humanistic perspective of sexuality.
#5) While most practitioners of medicine and mental healthcare are inadequately trained and ill-prepared to respond to the sexual needs of their patients. Sex-positive professionals journey a powerful and transformational pathway to sexual healing, sexual wellness and sexual success themselves and with individuals, couples and polycules.
Please Note: We at TKFND do not make value judgements of anyone’s morality or belief structures; however, if you are curious to learn about your own morality, ethics, and/or values, while also contributing to scientific research, visit Your Morals.
Here, a group of professors and graduate students in social psychology search to understand the way our “moral minds” work. By filling out a few surveys, you’ll help answer those questions. In return, you’ll get an immediate report on how you scored on each study, quiz, or survey. You’ll also see how your responses compare to others.
We invite you to join us and begin exploring your morality. This site is a separate non-profit academic venture, with no fees or advertising.
