But the annual event really reaches a climax on May 28, which is National Masturbation Day.
Thats when touchy-feely people all across America will be coming together for a good cause called the Masturbate- A-Thon, where they ask for pledges based on the length of time they pleasure themselves.
This year marks the 10th anniversary of National Masturbation Month and while most people will celebrate in private, organizer and sex expert Dr. Carol Queen expects at least 100 self-proclaimed self-lovers will gather in San Francisco for a hands-on charity event benefitting the Center for Sex and Culture.
Participants will have to provide their own toys, but Queen says there will be plenty of lube and latex for those who need them as well as a special voyeurs room for the media.
Because it is a public event, participants shouldnt ask others for assistance but Queen says it is permissible to ask for support or inspiration.
