National Masturbation Month has arrived and it's high time to enjoy some self love!
The concept was started in May 1995 by Good Vibrations, the first sex-positive and women-friendly sex-toy shop in California. It came about as a response to the forced resignation of U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders in 1994 during the Clinton administration.
Jocelyn made a speech at the United Nations World AIDS Day, and when an audience member asked Elders about masturbation’s potential for discouraging risky sexual behaviour in young people, Jocelyn answered “I think it is something that is part of human sexuality and a part of something that perhaps should be taught.” We reckon she was onto something!
National Masturbation Month was born from the outcrying of support for Jocelyn after her forced resignation for saying something many of us thought was very sensible! The focus of NMM was to raise awareness and promote masturbation as a healthy, safe and natural way to express one's sexuality, thereby removing the shame and stigma. Not only is Masturbation a foundation of sexuality, but it is also our right as human beings and it's good for your health as well!
To celebrate National Masturbation Month, we've taken a huge 15% off selected toys for the first week of May. That's a sale worth wanking over!
