It’s fun, it’s healthy, it reduces stress, and you get to know your own body even better. Let’s get the party started and gain new insights about masturbation.

Why May Masturbation Month?

Masturbation May goes all the way back to 1994. American surgeon Dr. Joycelyn Elders was fired from her job because she said sexual education courses should include more information about masturbation. That was the final straw for erotics shop ‘Good Vibrations’ in New York and they decided to publicly talk about the benefits of masturbation and physical self-love. In the years that followed, Masturbation May became bigger and bigger. It included the promotion of sex toys, how-to guides, and workshops.

Self-pleasure through the years

Pleasuring yourself is fortunately somewhat normalised now. That wasn’t always the case. Masturbation has a long history of stigma, shame, resentment, and endless misconceptions. At the start of the 18th century, it was regarded as a disease. Later, in the 19th century, there was a huge demand for anti-masturbation products. Products like ‘erection alarms’, penis sleeves, and sleeping gloves sold extremely well.

”In the 19th century, there were many anti-masturbation products. People did everything they could to prevent masturbation. It was seen as a disease.”

In the 20th century, people’s opinion about masturbation drastically changed. In the 60s and 70s, pleasuring yourself was recognised as part of exploring female sexuality. In fact, it was a stepping stone to sexual liberation. Feminists wrote essays and books about it and organised workshops. Various shops even started selling vibrators. Now, in 2021, we’re still working on convincing people of the positive effects of masturbation. This Masturbation Month provides food for thought regarding masturbation and self-love. To talk about it and experience it.

Masturbating is so much more than pleasuring yourself

Masturbating has many benefits: it’s fun, healthy, relaxing, and stress-reducing. Pleasuring yourself is so much more than just reaching a climax as soon as possible. The experience as a whole deserves much more credit. Masturbation is about self-love after all. You are valid, your body is valid, and your erotic thoughts are valid. Feel free to experience what you want to experience and open yourself up to trying new things. Whether it’s mindful masturbation, experimenting with sex toys, or masturbating together with your partner: this month is about your needs and desires.

”You are valid, your body is valid, and your erotic thoughts are valid. Feel free to experience what you want to experience.”

Having sex with yourself is a great opportunity to find out what you like and what brings you pleasure. Every body is unique and every body has its own preferences. Sometimes these are even undiscovered preferences, because you subconsciously shut down your curiosity. Give yourself the freedom to explore your sexuality; your desires and your needs. Enjoy your own sexual wellness homa spa or transform your bedroom into your personal sanctuary.
