Did you know that May is Masturbation Month? Seriously, check your favorite social media sites for hashtags like #MasturbationMay or #MasturbationMonth, it’s everywhere. The whole thing goes back to 1995 when sex positive retailer Good Vibrations declared May 7th National Masturbation Day in honor of Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders, who was fired in 1994 by President Bill Clinton for suggesting masturbation be part of the sex education curriculum for students. In the years since the celebration has expanded and now the entire month of May is devoted to celebrating the many benefits of masturbation.
May 2018 is particularly exciting however as the original trademark for the Magic Wand massager was filed on May 20, 1968, making May 20, 2018 the iconic vibrator’s 50th birthday. What a better time to celebrate the product that has helped so many find their orgasms and enjoy masturbation than National Masturbation Month?
So, take out your Magic Wand (Original or Rechargeable) and celebrate your pace in the long line of people who have found the joy in masturbation with the help of the vibrator that many folks still affectionately refer to as the “Hitachi”. I know I will!
