May: Masturbate & Fornicate (Outdoors)
May is Masturbation Month, along with a few other special days 😉
May was dedicated as Masturbation Month back in 1995 when the then Surgeon General Joyce Elders was fired for suggesting that masturbation be included in sexual education curriculum. In 1994 Dr. Joycelyn Elders was a very progressive politician which also meant she was a huge proponent of sexual education (and decriminalizing most drugs). Joyce made the suggestion the we teach the country’s children about the very basics of sexual education and that included masturbation. Joyce did not mean that we should bring dildo’s and cock rings to 5th grade sex ed classes but she was suggesting that we should be teaching children that it is okay and perfectly natural to masturbate, along with all other sexual education information.
Unfortunately, in 1995 Joyce was fired from her position as the U.S. Surgeon General but that same year, Good Vibrations declared May as National Masturbation Month. Masturbation Month now aims to raise awareness and to highlight the importance of masturbation for nearly everyone. It is safe, healthy, free, pleasurable and helps people to get to know their bodies and sexual responses. Many people still view masturbation as ‘taboo’ and problematic but May aims to change that. These are tons of benefits, both mentally and physically, to masturbation including stress reduction, cardio, sexual awareness, etc.
In addition to the whole month being dedication to masturbation, May 5th is Make Out Day and May 8th is Outdoor Intercourse Day. May 5th is a day to find someone to smush lips and slap tongues with, whether that is a random person or your partner. Odds are if you are in a long-term relationship you probably haven’t made out with your partner. Take advantage of this day to rekindle that passion you had when you first made out and if it is a random person, leave all that passion with them. May 8th is all about doing the deed outdoors! Whether it is a fantasy of yours or a regular occurrence May 8th is the day to do it! Find a place with few people (unless you’re into that) and setup so both of you are comfortable and get to it. If you are a little shy, give it a go at night but if you want the thrill and don’t mind the public eye then broad daylight it is.
Learn and love your body this month and have some fun with others this May!
- Try a new toy!! Whether you already have a large toy selection or you have never used a toy before in the bedroom, a new toy can be that new and exciting thing to reignite that passion and excitement. Try April’s Featured Toys
