May is Masturbation Month! Celebrate NSFW Lesbian Sexy Sunday Style!

MAY IS NATIONAL MASTURABTION MONTH!

Did you know that May is national masturbation month? Well it is! Sugarbutch explains it all for you:

Good Vibes founded National Masturbation Month in 1995 in the wake of the controversy surrounding the firing of former Clinton administration Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, who evoked conservative wrath when she opined that discussion of masturbation might have a place in sex education curricula. Realizing that one simple, sensible mention of solo pleasuring was enough to lose this prominent woman, the country’s first African-American surgeon general, her job convinced Good Vibrations staff that this most basic and accessible form of sex needed a serious image boost.

Some things have changed since 1995, but National Masturbation Month is still a necessary reminder that self-satisfaction is a healthy, accessible form of pleasure engaged in by almost everyone, of every gender and relationship status, at some time of (or throughout) their lives: It’s relaxing, allows people to learn more about their own sexual response, is a basic recommendation of sex therapists that can help people with many different sexual concerns, relieves menstrual cramps, and helps keep the genitals fully functional. On top of that, it’s the safest form of sex a person can have.

The Masturbate-a-Thon Turns 10! – The Center for Sex & Culture, originator of the live Masturbate-a-Thon, will hold its 10th annual fundraising and consciousness-raising event showcasing solo sexuality on May 30, 2010 at its 1519 Mission Street suites.

Time Records for the Masturbate-a-Thon include  7 hours and 6 minutes for a female and 9 hours and 58 minutes for a dude. Most orgams had during a masturbation month event are 49 for a lucky London lady in 2006, and 6 for a Male in London in 2006.

Ready to Touch Yourself: Here’s a NSFW photo album from the revelries at last year’s San Francisco event.

NYC Masturbate-a-Thon: Back in 2000, when Meow Mix still existed (legendary NYC lesbian nightclub), lots of ladies gathered right here in New York City to celebrate their own Masturbate-a-Thon: “The evening’s festivities culminated with the Fraggle Rock House Band’s tribute to songs about self-loving, and I found myself on the dance floor sandwiched between slices of sexy, sweaty, horny girls.”‘

alt.sex.masturbation has some masturbation techniques for ladies. Also, this entire site is chock-full of links and resources for female masturbation and ejaculation. The ads on the site are very explicit and therefore definitely not something you should open up if you are in a workplace. But they’ve got it all – g-spot simulation, masturbation tips and female masturbation techniques.

Euphamisms: Want a list of the funniest synonyms for female masturbation? Of course you do! Here’s some samples:

Paddling the pink canoe
Twinkling the little star
Whipping Your Cream

WHY DOES PORN MATTER?

Why Does Porn Matter?:

I am well aware of the deep flaws in porn… I’m aware that way too much of it, far from alleviating people’s insecurities about their sexuality, actually exacerbates them. I’m aware that way too much of it is sexist, perpetuating screwed-up stereotypes about both women and men. (Unlike, say, every other aspect of our popular culture, like TV and movies and pop music and video games and books and magazines and news reporting and so on, all of which are bastions of feminist thought.) And I’m very, very well aware that way too much porn is just bad: mediocre at best, embarrassingly shabby at worst. Sturgeon’s Law — “90% of everything is crap” — applies to porn as much as any other human endeavor, and possibly even more so, since the stigma surrounding it makes many good writers/ artists/ actors/ etc. avoid it like the plague. As porn consumers, I think we deserve better, and I think we should demand better.

But even given all of that, I passionately believe that porn has value.

FEAVERISH PHOTOGRAPHY:

Like naked girls? Well they aren’t naked, they’re like half-naked, but it’s like artsy photos. Mostly skinny models, if that’s your bag. Up to you. (@feaverish photography)

OBJECT LESSONS:

There is Joy In Being an Object: “…there is joy in being an object. I have loved the slipping feeling of turning into a thing and losing my being. I spent so many years as a stripper in a happy vague state of bland awareness, and I enjoyed much of that time. Consciousness is a curse, I’ve often felt, and felt keenly, bright and sharp and shiny as an expensive German knife. My consciousness has often been unkind; it has lit my life in the unforgiving gaze of overhead fluorescent lighting. I have been grateful for the Lethean waters of objectification.” (@pretty dumb things)

TOTALLY NSFW, but when Fleshbot does an Ultimate Surrender gallery (it’s a like fighting lesbian porn series shot in San Francisco) we really have no choice but to lead you to it.

BEST LESBIAN ROMANCE 2010:

Fleshbot’s got an excerpt: “The first time she fucked me was filthy and furious and glorious. We’d both snuck out of work and that stolen daytime hour was all the more filthy and sweet for it. We didn’t take our clothes off and I refused to let her in the bedroom.”
