A couple dozen people rallied in North Beach on Saturday for the annual Paul Reubens Day celebration. People dressed in costume as Paul Reubens’ character, Pee-wee Herman, sprayed each other with whipped cream, chased each other with a rubber phallus, and marched down the street yelling, “Happy Paul Reubens Day!”

It was a full celebration of Paul Reubens — his career as Pee-wee Herman and his infamous arrest for masturbating in a porn theater in the early 90’s. So masturbation, of course, was the event’s main squeeze.

“If people can’t touch themselves without guilt, then we’re all being oppressed,” event organizer Sadie Lune said in an interview the day before.

But for the outdoor parade, Paul Reubens Day participants mellowed the masturbatory activity to acts of comedy. Highlights included squirting the street with hand lotion and spanking a stuffed monkey.
