May is National Masturbation Month!

Ok, it’s actually National Masturbation Month in America, but we can definitely jump on their bandwagon!


It all began as a response to the unjust firing of U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders. At the United Nations World AIDS Day in 1994 she had answered an audience member’s question about masturbation by saying that she thought it was a ‘part of human sexuality and a part of something that perhaps should be taught’. Unfortunately she was forced to resign over this comment. A popular sex toy shop in San Francisco thought this was totally unjust and decided to take action. In 1995 they declared May to be National Masturbation Month.

In order to keep Ms Elders’ dreams alive, they used National Masturbation Month to start an open conversation with the general public about masturbation and to bring education about it to those who wanted to know more. They decided to dedicate a whole month to this because they wanted to help people get the most out of their self-pleasuring whether they were just learning about it for the first time or had been at it for years.

National Masturbation Month aims to raise awareness that masturbation is a perfectly normal, healthy and safe way to express your sexuality. It not only feels great, but has lots of positive benefits too. It’s great for your health, boosts your energy and immune system, can help you sleep and can even help you be better in the sack with a lover! Masturbation also runs no risks of STI’s or pregnancy so is super duper safe.

So if you needed any encouragement, May is the month to get masturbating! If you want to add some fun and excitement to your self-pleasuring, try a new sex toy. A dildo, fleshlight or anal beads are sure to get you going in the right direction!
