List of BDSM organizations
This is a (very incomplete) list of educational, campaigning and community organizations related to BDSM.
Where an organization clearly indicates on its website that membership is restricted by gender or sexual orientation, this is noted. Pansexual in this context means than no such restrictions apply. Note, however, that many BDSM organizations of the social/community variety will require prospective members to attend an orientation meeting, where among other things, the organizers will attempt to screen out the obviously mentally ill and those whose interest in BDSM is professional (for example as journalists or law enforcement personnel) rather than personal. Entries should have existing Wikipedia articles.
