Celebrate National Masturbation Month

2

by thepleasurechest

womanorgasmHave you heard? May is National Masturbation Month. Yes, you have an excuse (not that you needed one) to masturbate all month long.

Alternet has a great article on the unusual history of this celebration of self love, including some juicy anecdotes from the “Masturbate-a-thon” founded by Carol Queen.

 In 2012, Carol’s favorite moment occurred at the “Greatest Distance Ejaculated” competition when challenger Punk Nine broke the record by shooting his semen 13 feet. He had practiced by ejaculating into the Pacific Ocean.

Impressive. This year, some horny folks in Phily are putting the fun back in fundraising with their own charitable Masturbate-a-thon. They’ve already raised $820 of their $3000.

We’re doing our part with free workshops on the G-Spot and “GirlGasms” at our Los Angeles and New York stores. We’re also partnering with We-Vibe to give away some of the best toys for self pleasure. Keep checking our blog for details.

How will you observe National Masturbation Month?
