Happy National Masturbation Month/International Clitoris Awareness Week!

Hey everyone!

                                    Jonah Falcon & Adam Barta's music video, 'It's Too Big.'

It's been a really long time since I've written in here, and that is just not okay! Seems like we're finally getting some nice weather across the states here, and so I've been busy enjoying that and what not. I hope you all have, too. May is a time for warm weather. School lets out, and people start planning their summers. The only things I was aware of that happen in the month of May is the first as May Day and the last week being Memorial Day. But! I just found out that May is National Masturbation Month AND the week of May 6th-12th is International Clitoris Awareness Week!

How awesome is that? The fact that these things are even being widely recognized is a huge step in normalizing sexuality in our culture, which is so refreshing. Philadelphia is even hosting a Masturbate-A-Thon. Basically, participants find sponsors who will pay them for every hour they pleasure themselves, just like one of those walk-a-thon things. It's actually a very philanthropic endeavor--the funds all go to local sexual education groups ScrewSmart and GALAEI's PleasureRush! They will have a site you can log into,, where you can log your 'activity,' keep an online journal, post photos, and talk with others. Of course, sex can bring out deep, dark sides of ourselves, and there's bound to be some people who are abusing this idea, but for the most part, it's a great idea. Say what you will, but most people masturbate. It's extremely healthy, and can be a great way to learn about yourself or as a way to abstain from other forms of sexual expression in a relationship. How did this come about, though?

"The idea for National Masturbation month came from the good folks at Good Vibes in San Francisco, who, way back in 1995, protested the firing of Dr. Jocelyn Elders, who suggested that masturbation be included as part of comprehensive sexuality education. Masturbation is still seen as taboo so we are hoping that by having folks participate in the Masturbate-a-Thon, that they will help to destigmatize the behavior — and reduce stress and get a glowing complexion all the while."
-GALAEI (Gay & Lesbian Latino AIDS Education Initiative) Executive Director Elica Gonzales.

After the month ends on May 30th, CREAMIUM! will be held, a “live debaucherous game show/dance party that tests participant’s knowledge of all things sexual.” The only problem I have with all of this is that I am not going to be there for all of the fun festivities!!

Anatomy of the external female genitalia
Now, 'International Clitoris Week.' This is great for a lot of reasons. The main one being the one-sided focus of sexuality in our world's history. Sex has always been important, for procreation and pleasure. But the penis has always been such an iconic sexual symbol. Everyone knows what they look like, how to "access" them, if you will, and for the most part, what it takes to make them work. Men are historically and usually, physically, dominant, and therefore we tend to give sexual power to them, socially, mentally, physically, and verbally. If a man enjoys sex and takes a lot of Cosmo, anyone?), but where are these things for women? This week, familiarize yourself with the female genitalia. It's not difficult, and it's not anymore beautiful or ugly than the males'. Focus on your partner's pleasure. Play with it. Lick it. Stroke it. Use a toy on it. Anything. Just think of the rest of the year as time to appreciate the penis, because that's pretty much how it is. This week, hand it to the women. Lesbian women, this is not so much for you, because I would hope that if you have one yourself, you know how to find and properly stimulate the clit. Also, remember that, just like penises, every clit is different. Some girls don't like it stimulated. Some can't orgasm without touching it (as a matter of fact, most women can't orgasm without stimulating their clitoris in addition to penetration). Some like it handled rough, and some prefer it gentle. Generally, the further into sexual play you are, the more it can handle. But make sure you are practicing consent in everything you do, all the time.
Jay IS the CLIT commander.
wives, it's more widely accepted (even religious in some areas). But if a woman enjoys sex and takes a lot of husbands, she's considered a 'slut' and guilty of unlawful actions. This isn't fair, and neither is the fairly common belief that most men don't know where the clitoris is. Come on, guys. If you're mature enough to jerk it to those beautiful woman on the screen, at least know what you should be jerkin' it to. We have books, websites and magazines on how to pleasure a man (

Last thing I wanted to talk about. There is a man (currently living) who has the world's largest, record-setting penis. It is 13.5 inches. Thirteen and a half inches. Just think about that for a minute.
Jonah Falcon. This man has something you could never get.
What do you think about when the news says we'll be getting over a foot of snow? The average penis size is about 5.5 inches. This man's dick is damn near a foot BIGGER than that! And, the best part (in my opinion), is that his name is Jonah Falcon. How badass of a name is that?! It's awesome! I once saw him on an episode of Strange Sex, but he just made a music video with someone named Adam Barta, and it's called, 'It's Too Big.' It's hilarious. Watch it now, it's at the top of this post!

That's all for today, I think. I am going to try and update this more again (I know, I say that every time and rarely deliver, sorry :/). BUT! I bought the domain name for my blog, so will be up fairly soon. Keep checking for updates and I'll let you know! Thanks guys :)
