May is National Masturbation Month. Up until a few days ago, i didn't realize that there was a specific month set aside for this activity, presuming that most people celebrated the occasion all year long. I frankly don't recall receiving a Hallmark card from anyone telling me to enjoy this lusty month of May annual event.
National Masturbation Month is intended to reduce the stigma surrounding the discussion and practice of masturbation and various non- profit organizations are celebrating it by sponsoring "Wank Weeks" and (I am still not making this up) "Masturbate-a-thons," where people raise money for sex-education groups by playing with themselves. Sponsors can donate money for every hour participators spend... being charitable. Fundraising efforts can be logged on Crowdrise.com. I do think the sponsors are missing a huge opportunity for an obvious closing event ---- one which I and many others would be more than willing to attend ----and that would be a massive circle jerk party. Can you just imagine a huge event at say, Roseland, in which all the participants pay $100 a head (no pun intended) just for the pleasure of stripping down and jerking off on mass? Believe me that would go a long way in helping people to get over the stigma of masturbation. I've written in to suggest it but so far I haven't received a response. Maybe next year!
