May is mastubation month! and i expect each and every one of you to celebrate.

as part of my job that i am leaving in less than two weeks (happy dance), i assembled a large calendar database of holidays and anniversaries. so, i'm thinking of adding a "this day in history" feature to my blog. let me know what you think. if it's dull and boring and stupid, i'll listen to your vetos.

Okay, so I'm trying to figure out some way to appropriately recognize all these events without hurting myself ... ;)

Hey, should we organize a massive on-line jerk off?

I'd sign up for the online jerk off ... - after all, it would be wrong not to celebrate such an important month right?

As a librarian I check out lists of "month" stuff every month so I can put out book displays. Somehow I think putting up a masturbation month display would get me in trouble, even if I wasn't the children's librarian.

You missed "Transportation Month" I have displays up for that and Asian Pacific American Heritage Month. Kids love cars, trucks, trains, boats, planes, etc... had to run with Transportation Month

I'll just celebrate the masturbation stuff alone, and then with Harry when I see him. :-) Thanks for letting us know. I think a ritual with candles, scented massage oil and my best sex toys is in order.

May has always been the month of sex. Dancing round the maypole was all about sex. What about 'More than Masturbation' Month?
I made 29th May my own Happy Womb Day.
It was the day I saw my womb on a screen. It was happy, pink and smiling.

Looking at asthma info online today while my son coughs I came across this post. Does anyone know a good asthma site to help?
