Masturbate-a-Thon, 'Coming' Soon

May is National Masturbation Month.

Did you know that? Have you been participating?

Why should you masturbate? Let's hear what masturbation pioneer
and guru, (Well, I guess she didn't invent the wheel but she sure showed us how to ride! ; ) Betty Dodson has to say on the subject...

Why Masturbate?

[POST THIS ON ALL BULLETIN BOARDS] (I wonder if she means the ones at work, too. I could post it on the one in the bathroom.)

1. Because masturbation is immensely pleasurable, invigorating, rejuvenating and fun.

2. Because masturbation proclaims that sex is good in, by, and for itself.

3. Because masturbation makes you a better lover.

4. Because you can have more sex more often.

5. Because sexual pleasure is each person's birthright.

6. Because masturbation is the ultimate safe sex.

7. Because masturbation is a joyous expression of self love.

8. Because masturbation offers numerous health benefits including menstrual cramp relief, stress reduction, endorphin release, stronger pelvic muscles, reduction of prostate gland infection for men and resistance to yeast overgrowths for women.

9. Because masturbation is an excellent cardiovascular workout.

10. Because each person is their own best lover.

11. Because masturbation with a partner can be educational and hot.

12. Because masturbation increases sexual awareness.

I adore number 5 and I could always rationalize with number 9! Gotta love Betty!

If you've gotten enough practice in so far this month, you might be primed and ready to participate in the Masturbate-a-thon on Sunday, May 27, 2006. All proceeds from the San Francisco event (well, monetary proceeds, anyway), will benefit the SF based Center for Sex and Culture, which co-sponsors the event with Good Vibrations.

If you've never been to Good Vibes, either in person or by phone, catalog or internet, you must go there now! Especially if you're a woman who's never masturbated or been to Good Vibes, you may not proceed without doing one or the other. I'm serious. I've written a code into the html to prevent people who've never masturbated and/or never been to Good Vibes from continuing with this post.

Sorry, Dubya, Dick and Don.

If you won't be able to make it to a Masturbate-a-thon venue, to participate or to spectate, you can still partake, one way or another, in the privacy of your own home. Just remember to bring yourself some flowers and a nice bottle of wine. At least rent a video, damnit. Cheapskate! (I had to change the link for "video" because it wouldn't take you to my video wish list on Darn. It's pretty much the whole lesbian video library.)

On a related note, you have heard about the religious conservatives' war on masturbation
, haven't you? Here's the proof of the vast right-wing conspiracy presented by that pentultimate nemesis, Bill O'Reilly. (Oh, and don't miss the Keith Olberman's video interview with the creators of Sweet Jesus, I Hate Bill O' What are you doing to stop the war on masturbation? Get those hands busy, Missy! Idle hands are the devil's workshop and all that. Only you can prevent the end of self-love as we know it!

If you need advice, wit, toys, lube, safer sex supplies, great graphics and an easily navigable site (clear, largish print, for those in the Golden Years) check out Come as You Are., the place where these lovely buttons are for sale! They have a great selection of videos. Be sure to check out the lesbian flicks, if you lean my way.

God bless those crazy Canucks! Canada is sounding better all the time.

In the mean time, I think I'll go perform my training ritual. May 27th is only days away. Adds a whole new visual to the term, "practicing homosexual," now, doesn't it?

Well that was quite an interesting read I must say. So with all this talk of white water wristing do we need to send you a sample video so you can make sure that we are doing it right??? Oh and I have a quick joke for you.
(Q)What do mushrooms and vibrators have in common???
(A)They are both meat substitutes
Love Justin & Von

Justin, some of us don't consider a vibrator or a dildo a substitute for anything. They are important just as they are and we like it that way. : )
