Happy Masturbation Day- 5 Benefits of Self-Care

Masturbation or self-love is still one of the topics on which nobody talks openly. On the other hand, reports show that 95% men and approximately 89% women masturbate on daily basis. But they are never given that space where they can confess. Strange. Isn’t it?


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 have been known about this day or I should say this month since years now.

This post was originally written in 2017 on the same day.

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 judgemental 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. Everyone do it and they should be. It is not a taboo to give yourself a pleasure, the feel you crave to ask from your partner. And as long as you are not hurting others or your own self there is nothing wrong you are doing. 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. You should be open about what you feel with your body.

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.

5 Benefits of Masturbation:

1) Awareness towards your Body

Being an Erotic writer, I’ve observed a lot of cases whereby people want to be felt in the most amazing ways but there’s a lack of understanding in their own body structure. They aren’t aware what they like and what they don’t.

Hence, self-love is advised to know your own body before making any relationship with your partner.

2) Keeps you Activated

If you don’t believe me then examine this on yourself, when you masturbate you before free and it gives you a kind of energy which you require to keep yourself fresh all day.

3) Gives you Peaceful Sleep

Different people have different routines for self-love but the pleasure it gives you once done is priceless. You get the relief and a peaceful sleep after a hectic day. Try for a day (Oops! Night) and you’ll be there.

4) Releases Tension

It’s been shown in one of the most famous movie based upon sales profile that men and women who masturbates release their tensions and stresses than people who choose alcohol and become addicted to it.

5) Positive Mental Level

It gives you open perspective about life and the beauty it has around it. Stretching or suppressing your desires will make you bounded and give you unnecessary pressure.


6) Makes you Sexually stronger

Although, I had written to give only 5 benefits but this one is, I believe, most required in today’s generation. Many a times, we get attracted to someone and we call it as love, but deep within even we’re pretty much aware it’s nothing but an infatuation.

In that situation, your mind and sexual desires force you to do things which you’re not comfortable doing with, and that’s probably because you want the other sex. It’s natural but, BUT, suppose if you have a strong hold on your desires the entire scene would be changed.

So always be happy, healthy, and keep exploring yourself.

Happy jerking! And don’t forget:

      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 🙂

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.

  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.
