So May is "Masturbation Month" which means business as usual for most of our fine readers (and writers), but for those of you who truly want to celebrate, here are a few dates to mark on your calendars:
Saturday, May 3, 7–10pm - Opening reception for "I Touch Myself," a collection of erotic photos, steamy paintings and illustration at Femina Potens. Details here.
Thursday, May 8, 6:30pm - Ask The Doctors - Dr. Carol Queen and Dr. Robert Lawrence discuss the ins and outs of masturbation. Details here.
Sunday, May 25, 3pm - The 7th Annual Masturbate-A-Thon - Make some money for the Center For Sex & Culture by pledging your support for your favorite wanker. OR, sign up to masturbate on camera for the cause. Details here.
Anytime of the month - Post a Twittergasm and shame all your prudish friends.
Weekly Clubs Editor John Graham is surprised that Kleenex, Jergens, Johnson & Johnson, and/or any number of lubricant or shower massage-nozzle companies haven't seized the obvious marketing opportunities. Maybe they'll wise up while the month is young? That'll be the day. But then again this is San Francisco. --Janine Kahn
