I go on a soundseeing tour of the Masturbate-a-thon. The Masturbate-a-thon is an event where people get pledges for how long they masturbate. I was invited by the nice people at the Center for Sex and Culture in San Francisco.
About The Masturbate-a-thon:
The Masturbate-a-Thon began as part of Good Vibrations’s National Masturbation Month. Started in 1995 after then-Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders was fired for saying that “masturbation… is perhaps something that should be taught” about in the context of sex education classes, NMM was intended to get people to talk about self-pleasure, which is so frequently a silent element in our sex lives. Every year Good Vibrations added something new to the mix: the Masturbation Hall of Fame, lists of favorite masturbation euphemisms and places to masturbate, and finally the Masturbate-a-Thon was born. In that context a private event (one person, or a couple, would get pledges from appropriate people) in which money was raised based on how long people spent masturbating (comparable to the way a Walk-a-Thon is based on distance). Good Vibrations disbursed 100% of the money to its NMM charities, which focused on sex education and sexual health.
A few years later, after CSC director — and also Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist — Dr. Carol Queen had been doing morning drive-time radio interviews with shock jocks who all wanted to come be judges at the Masturbate-a-Thon, and having to protest that it was not a group event, she and Robert (her life partner and co-founder of the Center for Sex & Culture) looked at each other and said, “WE could hold one.” The live Masturbate-a-Thon, while not administered by Good Vibes, has the originating organization’s blessing, and has been an annual event since 2000.
