Masturbate for Safer Sex


From Dr.Petra, we learn that May is the masturbation month, designed to promote Safe Sex practices, raise sexual awareness, provide sexual education, and counter puritanical perversely anti-sexual sentiments.

From Good Vibrations:
At Good Vibrations, we know that sexual pleasure is a birthright and that masturbation is a powerful source of sexual gratification. Since practically everyone masturbates, but few people talk about it, we created National Masturbation Month, a month-long celebration recognizing the many ways we can pleasure ourselves.

In celebration of National Masturbation Month, Good Vibrations will donate a percentage of all lubrication sales made in the month of May to the Center for Sex and Culture, a non-profit dedicated to providing the community with non-judgmental, sex-positive sexuality education and support.

This year people all over the US (and the world!) will celebrate the ninth annual Masturbate-A-Thon, raising funds for worthy community-based organizations that focus on women's health, safer sex, HIV education, and other sex-positive causes. This year the Center for Sex and Culture will be holding their Masturbate-a-thon on May 27. For details, visit www.masturbate-a-thon.com.
You can learn all about the Ninth Annual Masturbat-A-Thon at their homepage, read the history of the event, and learn how you too can participate:
These are a public education device to increase the use of self pleasure as a strategy for safer sex. We have 15 years experience running safer-sex-oriented events and have participated in over 7000 safer sex interventions. We have been producing the Masturbate-a-Thon for 5 years now. We feel if people are going to be sexual in public, they should have the option of attending events where they will not expose themselves or others to any STD. And they get to masturbate for a good cause!

100 percent of any money raised will go to the non-profit sex education endeavors of The Center for Sex & Culture. We don’t accept federal or state money. We never have and never will. It is through the will of the people that we exist and thanks to the support of our communities that we can do safer sex work. This is non-profit work at its best.
Or, if you have an exhibitionist streak, you may want to send your entry to the Beautiful Agony or its recent offshoot, I Feel Myself, two most artistic websites devoted to masturbation. I am sure they will also get involved in the Masturbation Month in one way or another.

So, it's good for the kids' health, safety and education, and it makes you feel good as well. Money and time well spent.
