May 2015 is International Masturbation Month, a month long celebration of learning to not only love yourself, but educate yourself about the safest form of sex. It was first celebrated as National Masturbation Day on May 7, 1995, when the sex-positive, San Francisco based sex shop, Good Vibrations, declared the day in response to the firing of Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders. Edler was fired by then President Bill Clinton on December 9, 1994 for daring to promote that masturbation be a part of sex education for public school students. The day was eventually extended to the entire month of May. Click on for funny, poignant memes about masturbation!
