Hey guys, this is really interesting.. see excerpt from
"In case you were wondering, May is National Masturbation Month. The celebration of May as National Masturbation Month began in 1995 in San Francisco as a response to the forced resignation of then U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders.
After a speech at the United Nations World AIDS Day in 1994, an audience member asked Elders about masturbation’s potential for discouraging early sexual activity. She answered,“I think it is something that is part of human sexuality and a part of something that perhaps should be taught.”
And another from this site, the event title os Masturbate-a-thon!
"May is National Masturbation Month and San Francisco is taking things into their own hands. They have created an event called the masturbate-a-thon. The Masturbate-a-thon is being hosted by the Center for Sex and Culture to raise money the center needs for its sex educational programs.
The Center for Sex and Culture is a non profit group that teaches people about positive sex. They regularly provide classes, workshops and social events as methods of educating diverse people about safe sex. They also provide a library and search materials that cover every range of sexual topic that comes to mind. The goal of the Center for Sex and Culture is to reach a wide variety of people from all different types of backgrounds, cultures, ethnicities and financial brackets. They have been chosen by the American Association of Sex Educators, Counselors, and Therapists to assist in educating the educators. "
now there'a good way to look at masturbation...an educational cause:)
