National Masturbation Month started off as a single National Masturbation Day on May 28th. The first celebration of this holiday (that really should be one that we ‘get off’ of work) was back in 1995, and was started by the Good Vibrations sex toy chain. Sexologist Carol Queen was one of the founding members of National Masturbation Month and started it in protest against the fact that even though almost everyone does it, masturbation is still stigmatized. They wanted to protect everyone’s right to masturbate, as technically it’s against the law in some parts of the world, as well as the US.

But one day a year wasn’t enough to fully appreciate this special day. To coincide with the celebration of National Masturbation Day, the entire month of May is devoted to this pastime. May is in fact National Masturbation Month!

There are special events that go on during the month of May, other than just sitting at home with your vibrators. The Masturbate-a-thon is a charity event that raises money for various charities, with the participants trying to achieve world records such as Target Ejaculation, Most Orgasms, Ejaculation Distance, and the Longest Time Spent Masturbating (which is currently standing at 10 hours and 10 minutes by male porn star Sonny Nash). Many sex toy retailers hold sales during this time so you can stock up on all the vibrators, dildos, male masturbators, and lube that you could possibly need in a month of masturbation.
