Anderson, Julie Keck and Jessica King, creators of the F*ck Yes series, which strives to provide informative and actually sexy models of pre-coital conversation, along with Dee Severe and Jimmy Broadway, lifestyle BDSM players and co-founders of Severe Sex Films, a company that aims to combine authentic BDSM with cinematic production values, and Alan Levy Esq. representing the National Coalition for Sexual Freedom and the organization’s Consent Counts program.
