As leaders in our community, it’s our duty to help promote and support sexual health awareness and free speech. We focus on dignity and respect for everyone. From our work with sexual health and education, child protection and human trafficking, and social justice and free speech, we hope to provide a better, safer, and more understanding world.
CHILD PROTECTION & HUMAN TRAFFICKING
ASACP - Title Sponsor of Association of Sites Advocating Child Protection
The ASACP is dedicated to protecting children online from being exposed to age-restricted material. They provide a secure, anonymous reporting system and foster communication and cooperation with our online adult industry. The ASACP educates members, the online adult industry, the public, and government policymakers about child protection, illegal online activities, and battles child sexual abuse online. We have proudly been a corporate Title Sponsor for the ASACP since 2006.
"The Lion's Den has been in the forefront of the industry for more than 50 years, not just when it comes to integrity and professionalism, but also leading the way in defending our 1st and 4th Amendment rights. We're proud that our community involvement includes supporting ASACP's efforts to protect kids from exploitation and from adult material." – CEO Mike Moran.
RTA – Restricted To Adults
We are a proud sponsor of RTA, created by the ASACP to better enable parental filtering. This label demonstrates our commitment to helping parents prevent children from viewing age-inappropriate content. Our website has been correctly labeled as “Restricted to Adults”.
SEXUAL HEALTH & EDUCATION
Ohio State University, Student Advocates for Sexual Health Awareness (SASHA)
With our headquarters in Columbus, Ohio, we are a proud partner and event sponsor with SASHA to help students learn about different sex toys and gear. SASHA stands for educating the student body about sexual health in all its forms, including healthy relationships, methods of protection, body acceptance, gender equality, and STI awareness.
We offer products that help people stay intimate with their significant other, including before, during and after cancer treatment. Here’s what we’ve been up to:
Ovarian Cancer Alliance
In 2018, Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Ohio Board of Directors President Kim Britt and Ali Dunlap of the Lions Den Events Team met at Girl’s Night Out at Hollywood Casino. They came together to share positivity that Ovarian Cancer does not mean your sexual life is over while helping to break stigmatisms and normalize the conversation of sexual health. The Lions Den joined the Ovarian Cancer Foundation in multiple events, including the Strides for Hope 5k.
We have raised $125,696 so far for The Ovarian Cancer Alliance of Ohio, we contribute yearly to their fundraisers, like the Strides for Hope 5K, Handbag bingo, and we were the primary sponsor for their 10th Anniversary Gala in 2021. -LD received the contribution award from OCAO in 2020 for our round up at the register campaign. We raised $53,621 for them that time. We had a change shortage!
Testicular Cancer Society
We are April Charity Partners with the Testicular Cancer Society. Generous customers rounded up their purchases in-store and online in April 2022 and we are thrilled to share that we raised $20,000!
Testicular cancer is the most common cancer in men aged 15-35, and by supporting the Testicular Cancer Society, Lion’s Den helped provide education about testicular cancer and support fighters, survivors, and caregivers.
SOCIAL JUSTICE & FREE SPEECH
Social justice is a very large part of who we are. We have a number of campaigns for every body, including Sexy is for Every Body, In is the New Out, and “Life” by Lion’s Den. These campaigns highlight our belief that everyone deserves to feel comfortable and be themselves. It’s our duty to break down social stigma that have unfortunately halted the forward progress of sexual health and social justice. With our campaigns, we continue to bring open and accepting discussions to help everyone feel safe and comfortable with who they are and encourage them to help break down barriers.
The Lion’s Den has been a staunch advocate of free speech work since our inception. As supporters of the Free Speech Coalition, we believe in protecting the First and Fourteenth Amendments, helping prevent efforts to interfere with the right of Lion's Den clients to receive constitutionally protected expression, free speech, and thought.
