May Is National Masturbation Month

How will you celebrate?

Masturbation Month dates back to 2000, the concept is still new. It all started out when proprietors of sex toy shops decided to have masturbation contests to raise money for charity as well as to promote their industry. Over the years, the popularity of it seems to wax and wane. It seems the West Coast of the United States always has something happening each time Masturbation Month comes around, but the rest of the world has only experimented with the idea so far.

They usually hold something called a Masturbate-a-thon. During the past six years, the Masturbate-a-thon has raised over $25,000 for women’s health initiatives and HIV prevention, education and treatment organizations, and has contributed to debates about safer sex and alternative safe methods of sexual expression. The event awards several honors for those who raise the most money as well as for multiple orgasms and endurance.
