May is almost over but that doesn’t mean you still can’t celebrate International Masturbation Month. And why not? It’s a low-cost, stress relieving, endorphin-inducing, healthy act of self-love that hurts literally no one and yet it’s still a taboo topic in our society. For many of us it’s still hard to talk about paddling our pink canoes, or jerkin’ our gherkins , and that’s why it’s more important than ever that we work to eliminate masturbation shame.

International Masturbation month originated in 1995 in honour of then-American Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders, who was fired when she was asked if masturbation could be beneficial to young people and answered, "I think that it is part of human sexuality, and perhaps it should be taught."

The San Francisco-based sex shop, Good Vibrations, dubbed May Masturbation Month in honour of Elders and her sensible suggestion to youth. Now it's recognized worldwide, from masturbate-a-thons in the U.S. and Canada that raise money for sex-positive charities to live self-pleasure events hosted by the Center for Sex and Culture.

So if you're looking for something to help celebrate self-lovin' this month, or any other month for that matter, come visit Positive Passion and we'll help you find the perfect toy. Because May may be ending but jilling and jerking off never go out of style.
