Ladies and gentlemen, the title says it all: today begins National Masturbation Month! This month-long holiday was started in 1995 by the incredible women behind Good Vibrations, and its popularity has been “on the rise” ever since.
I think everyone should have a hobby, and masturbation is a good one. I want to see masturbation normalized instead of stigmatized in culture and literature, and for my part, I always include masturbation scenes in my books. Masturbation is fun, healthy, and sexy, and I’m happy to devote my blog this month to singing its praises.
Tina Fey has some great advice:
This month, my blog will be celebrating all things self-love. I might post sex toy reviews, fun facts about this fine pastime, or snippets of masturbation scenes from my books. I’m also going to be doing Twitter surveys which you can find at my twitter account or by following #MasturbationMonth.
Speaking of which, here’s today’s survey:
Here we go, then, #MasturbationMonth survey. Clitoris-owners, what’s your preferred external stimulation method?
