May is National Masturbation Month!

  1. America's Masturbating!

    Portland, Oregon is doing it and, of course, San Francisco too!. National Masturbation Month is fast approaching, and it climaxes on the 26th with the 12th Annual Masturbate-a-thon, in San Francisco, and May 19th, in Portland, Oregon.

    America began celebrating National Masturbation Month in 1995. The purpose of National Masturbation Month to raise awareness, and highlight the importance of masturbation for nearly everyone: it's safe, it's healthy, it's free, it's pleasurable and it helps people get to know their bodies and their sexual responses.

    Masturbation is the gold standard to which all other forms of sex are compared to. Of all the kinds of sex people can have, masturbation is the most universal and important, yet few people talk about it freely -- worse, many people still feel it is "second best" or problematic in some way. National Masturbation Month lets us emphasize how great it is: it's fun, it's natural, and it feels terrific!

    Here's some simple suggestions as to how members of this forum can fully celebrate this very special month:

    - Accept and embrace masturbation as a wonderful, life-long, addiction. You will never outgrow it.
    - Masturbate with a friend or lover.
    - If you have a lover, make an effort to spend more time masturbating together.
    - Masturbate outdoors, in a private, wilderness setting.
    - Masturbate in a ritualized fashion. Light candles -many candles, incense, etc.
    - Check in with your local, cozy mom and pop sex shops and find out if any masturbation celebration events are happening in your area. If so, take the opportunity to connect with other masturbators, in such semi-public settings. And we don't mean masturbation orgies (we certainly don't!). But simple gatherings, where everyone welcomes each other and freely and openly talks about the joys of masturbation.

    Here are just a few of the events that are planned for May:

    "The Sperm Bank of California is excited about participating in Masturbation Month," enthuses Sperm Bank of California Executive Director Alice Ruby. "We hope this event will encourage men between the ages of 18 and 40 to masturbate for another excellent cause -- helping women's dreams of building a family become a reality, by becoming donors."

    This listing is far from complete. And if you hear of any in your area, please post them in this forum, and let's all make the month of May a month to remember.

    And send us your blessings, as both of us intend to masturbate throughout the month of May -to the exclusion of all other forms of sex! Last year, we started the month by undressing, from the waist down, and popping the cork on a bottle of champagne!

    Let us know how you plan to celebrate the month of May.
