You didn’t think I could let the entire month of may go by without a mention of international masturbation month did you? A celebration of wankers!
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.
Now a discussion on masturbation. In the space I occupy, getting oneself off is pretty much unanimously accepted as a good thing. Me and many other adult workers, video makers, cam girls phonesex operators make a living encouraging people to do it. Aside from that I found this enlightening information about masturbation on the NHS website:
“Apart from the pleasure it gives, masturbating can help you learn what you like and don’t like sexually. Men can also use masturbation to learn how to control their orgasms, while women can find out what helps them to achieve an orgasm. Many couples masturbate together and find it a very enjoyable part of their relationship. Other people don’t and that’s fine: it’s a personal choice”
Did you need a doctor to tell you that?
Despite this evidence in praise of bashing ones bishop, there is another view point (as with any subject) there is resistance from religious groups, though that’s not what interests me today. I speak of the no-fap movement. (Search it on youtube) The claims being that orgasms deplete serotonin leaving us with less available for release when it comes to other hedonic triggers such as eating, listening to music, the scent of a flower, and making love with a partner. The idea states that masturbation equates to forcing the release of the happy hormone serotonin. Avoiding doing so will lead to a deeper enjoyment of other fun things.
I have a question. Me and Monkey masturbate together all the time. Does this count as making love? Sometimes we watch porn. Sometimes we gaze into each other’s eyes and sometimes I lie between his legs and lick his balls while he wanks his cock and I rub my pussy. Does this count as ‘fapping’? I don’t think there is a right or wrong answer here. Is it good? Is it bad? It certainly has no negative impact on my relationship and it definitely won’t make you go blind. I choose to embrace this simple pleasure. Grasp it with both hands if you will.
Yesterday afternoon, when the sun was high in the sky, I had my lunch, a nap, a short masturbate and a long walk. All of which I thoroughly enjoyed. Would I have gleaned more enjoyment from my walk if I had missed out the pre-pedestrian play in my pants? I have no idea. let me know if you have any experience in this matter. I dont! I dont usually go more than a couple of days without giving myself an intimate massage.
I made a video as you may have guessed by the picture at the top of the post and if you fancy a wank to it You can find In Tents Afternoon on my ManyVids .Tell me how it goes! And if you have any experience with wank abstinence Id be very curious to hear about it!
