Masturbation Month

Definition - What does Masturbation Month mean?

National Masturbation Month started with a San Fransisco based sex toy shop, Good Vibrations. The owners of the toy shop first started observing Masturbation Month in May of 1995 in an effort to banish some of the taboo and stigma surrounding masturbation as well as to raise money for sex-positive charities. In 1999, Good Vibrations introduced the Masturbate-a-Thon, an event that encourages participants to masturbate in order to raise money for charities and increase awareness of the naturalness of masturbation. Since then, Masturbation Month has caught on in sex-positive communities across the world.

Kinkly explains Masturbation Month

One of the most amazing things about Masturbation Month is that anyone can celebrate it, regardless of their nationality, race, religion, or culture. To celebrate Masturbation Month, all you have to do is - you guessed it - masturbate! You can either get busy with yourself in private, host your own masturbate-a-thons, or join one of the growing number of citywide May Masturbate-a-Thons around the world. Who knows? Maybe you can set the next masturbation world record!

  • Sex should be about mutual enjoyment, connection, and the borrowing from another’s fire at a moment when you want it most.
