Thu. 5/7 1:30 pm: After a speech at the United Nations World AIDS Day, an audience member asked U.S. Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders about masturbation’s potential for discouraging early sexual activity. She answered, “I think it is something that is part of human sexuality and a part of something that perhaps should be taught.” Days later she was forced to resign for her comment.

Launched in 1995 by Good Vibrations in honor of Elders’ work, National Masturbation Month provides a unique opportunity to get people talking about self love and encourage conversations about sexual wellness.
