International Masturbation Month

National Masturbation Day, also known as International Masturbation Day, is an annual event celebrated on May 7 or May 28, to protect the right to masturbate. It was first observed May 7, 1995, after sex-positive retailer, Good Vibrations, declared the day in honor of Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders who was fired by President Bill Clinton for suggesting masturbation be a part of sex education curriculum for students; she was terminated on December 9, 1994. The day has since been expanded to include the entire month of May as International Masturbation Month. 


Woah! So today is the second last day of the International Masturbation Day. I know many of you did not know about this. Right? Well, that is why I thought of sharing it with you here.

I know, there should not be any such month or day where one celebrates masturbation. It is nothing but a way to touch yourself to give the sexual pleasures. There are hundreds and thousands of pornographic websites which are watched by men and women both.

I am not being judgmental here whether it is right or wrong, whether one should go with the flow or not. But one thing is very clear for sure, no matter how many boys or girls denied that they don’t do it, are certainly lying. It is not a taboo to give yourself a pleasure, as long as you are not hurting others or your own self. Many people are still wearing the fake mask of avoiding those who talks about masturbation or self-love. And somehow that is the thing which goes wrong.

Recently, one of my female friends introduced me with one of the interesting series on YouTube named Sex Chat with Pappu & Papa whereby a little kid asks his father, what is masturbation. And I was really astonished to see the reaction of the father. But it is really interesting to see how wonderfully he explained him with minute details. Let me share that video with you here:


Who decided we should celebrate masturbation during the month of May? It Was the toy company Good Vibrations. But before you get up in arms about it being a commercialized holiday invented by ‘hallmark’ to sell more ‘cards’ you should know what inspired it. In 1994 the US Surgeon General  Dr Jocelyn Elders  was forced to resign after expressing her expert opinion about the AIDS epidemic. She was asked directly what she thought about;

“a more explicit discussion and promotion of masturbation” As a means to limit the spread of the virus.

To which she replied;

(I am) “a very strong advocate” of teaching sex education in schools “at a very early age.”

“As per your specific question in regard to masturbation,” Dr. Elders said, “I think that is something that is a part of human sexuality and it’s a part of something that perhaps should be taught. But we’ve not even taught our children the very basics.”

This was just too much and she was forced to resign. It was the straw that broke the camels back. What were the other straws you ask? She had spoken of potentially distributing contraceptives in public schools and she was open to studying the legalization of drugs. She was a progressive woman, far ahead of her time.

2) You cannot blame porn. When I was young, I used to masturbate to Gilligan’s Island.

      1. Ha, nope. I was kidding.

        Hey, awhile back you’d asked me if I’d had any other social media sites. Was curious why you asked me that and then never came back to my blog after that? It just struck me as odd.

        Your blog is on fire, of course! Woohoo!! You guys have a really great thing here. I’m glad to have been a part of it for the brief time I was.

        I wish you all the best.

  1. The first quote you mentioned in quotes section is italef a proof of how instinctual it is. As natural as getting periods, giving birth and an infant spontaneously sucking on mothers breast. If babies had mind, I’m sure they might have thought that they’ve discovered a source of food too.

  2. A very intriguing post,
    You write some interesting things Sumit, that is why I love your blog.
    As a sensual person this post caught my attention.
    Self pleasure is even more wonderful when a lover watches you. It isn’t a bad thing I think people are just embarrassed.
    But, to be honest every adult gets aroused by someone or something and it inspires you to……give yourself a sweet touch.
    Or maybe some people just wanted to touch themselves, whatever turned them on at some point we all do it.
    But, I did not know masterbation month existed lol. Maybe I chose the wrong month to show much skin on my gravatar pic lol 🙂

  4. Well, am I the only one who is opposing masturbation here. Masturbation is a sin. The person who professed Bhagvagita had thosands of sons. Do you really believe, if he hadn’t had sex and instead made his hands dirty the. will we decendent of Lord Krishna get to have a birth in wonderful india today. I believe India should ban masturbation with beef & books about 10 easy tricks to have orgasms in masturbation. Let’s make Modiji’s Make In India Dream Come True. India will be number one country with 5 billion population.(essay likh dala comment mei)


  5. well written, Sumit ❤ :D. We Indians need to learn much about these topics. I guess the problem with we Indians is the never changing mentality that is followed in the name of tradition. Opposition on minute things and making it a breaking news on media has made people bounded in their old superstitions . Sex education is a basic education which is needed to be taught in every school considering all aspects of human nature. Our mentality is the reason why a gul with short dress is considered nympho, nyone masturbating is sex addicted, and the one telling a lie in society is considered "susheel". This is a nice step by you on new media through which many youths and teenagers will find themselves comfortable in between this socially ethical country, :p 😀 (Y)

    1. Absolutely agree with you along with all the points you’ve mentioned here.

      Yes, also parents need to be very mature if their kids ask them anything related Masturbation, sex, menstruations, night falls and so many things.

    1. Yes, Vrushti. That was my motive behind this post.

      I know there is no need to tell people about this thing which everyone does. But if it’s celebrated like this, then why don’t we gain our knowledge. 😉😋

  6. I didn’t even know a day like that existed. But now I think that we really don’t need such a day, boys or girls, because it’s a natural need, just like sex. Now we don’t have a national sex day, do we?

    1. No, Pradita. We don’t.
      I know masturbation is a natural thing to attempt, even if no one teaches, we’re still gonna do to the walls of it.

      But this day is basically has some motive behind it. And I guess, you must have read why it has been celebrated since 1995.
