I love how Kaylee is the one they treat like she’s innocent and then she says stuff like this all matter-of-factly. Best ever. <3

I’ll always love how sweetly Kaylee is open about her sexuality.  Makes it seem more like a good future to be heading towards.

THE CENTER FOR SEX & CULTURE ANNOUNCES THE 2013 LIVE MASTURBATE-A-THON

Come for a Cause while supporting CSC’s operations and programs at an old-school Jack-and-Jill-Off
 
Mark your calendars and get ready to drop your pants (or skirts). The Center for Sex & Culture, San Francisco’s unique sexuality information resource, has scheduled this year’s Masturbate-a-Thon for Saturday, May 25, from 7pm to 11pm. All genders and all orientations are welcome to explore self-pleasure in a supportive group environment at this one-of-a-kind sexy event. By hosting this annual event, The Center for Sex & Culture strives to break the silence and shame that clouds masturbation. Come for us, loud and proud.
 
A Brief History
The Masturbate-a-Thon began as part of Good Vibrations’s National Masturbation Month. Started in 1995 after then-Surgeon General Dr. Joycelyn Elders was fired for saying that “masturbation… is perhaps something that should be taught” about in the context of sex education classes, NMM was intended to get people to talk about self-pleasure, which is so frequently a silent element in our sex lives. Every year Good Vibrations added something new to the mix: the Masturbation Hall of Fame, lists of favorite masturbation euphemisms and places to masturbate,  and finally the Masturbate-a-Thon was born. In that context a private event (one person, or a couple, would get pledges from appropriate people) in which money was raised based on how long people spent masturbating (comparable to the way a Walk-a-Thon is based on distance). Good Vibrations disbursed 100% of the money to its NMM charities, which focused on sex education and sexual health.
 
A few years later, after CSC director — and also Good Vibrations Staff Sexologist — Dr. Carol Queen had been doing morning drive-time radio interviews with shock jocks who all wanted to come be judges at the Masturbate-a-Thon, and having to protest that it was not a group event, she and Robert (her life partner and co-founder of the Center for Sex & Culture) looked at each other and said, “WE could hold one.” The live Masturbate-a-Thon, while not administered by Good Vibes, has the originating organization’s blessing, and has been an annual event since 2000. 
 
This year the Masturbate-a-Thon will join together with the Jack-and-Jill-Off to create one sexy event. The Jack-and-Jill-Off was developed in 1987 as a collaboration between the San Francisco Jacks and women from the Institute for Advanced Study of Human Sexuality. Intended to be a safer sex event that made it possible for people of every gender and orientation to enjoy a group sex environment without concern for HIV status, it is also a fabulous zone for honoring masturbation — and for celebrating National Masturbation Month. 
 
Details of the Event
The Masturbate-a-Thon can be participated in from anywhere — people do not have to come to this CSC event. 18 and over only, please.
 
To participate, download a pledge form from http://masturbateathon.tumblr.com/post/49050859942/official-pledge-form-for-center-for-sex-and and get pledges. Your pledgers can give based on the duration of time that you masturbate; number of orgasms you have; or they can agree on a flat pledge rate. Pledges are tax-deductible. On May 25, masturbate — either with us at the Jack-and-Jill-Off, or elsewhere (at home, for instance). Then let your pledgers know how much to remit. IF you have gotten pledges, you can come to the CSC event for free. If you wish to try breaking the world time record (currently close to 10 hours), you will have to do that from home or another appropriate location this year; we recommend enlisting a friend or partner to monitor your time. We will give prizes at the group event for most orgasms, most money raised, and an ejaculation distance contest if we have participants who want to go for this onsite record. CSC will still announce record-holders and -breakers, so people who participate offsite are encouraged to report in after the event.
 
Participants may come to the JJO for a $30 minimum entry fee, or bring a sponsorship form with pledges they have collected from others (pledge form here: http://masturbateathon.tumblr.com/post/49050859942/official-pledge-form-for-center-for-sex-and). We strongly encourage pledge gathering. The idea of the Masturbate-a-Thon is to get people to break the cultural taboo of talking about masturbation. All funds go to support CSC, a non-profit which subsists on event fees, donations, and fundraising events. Participants are responsible for collecting and remitting all pledges.
 
The Masturbate-a-Thon is a comfortable and good-humored event which attempts to create a safe and friendly space for self-pleasure. Co-founder Queen says, “We try not to take this event too seriously; I like to tell people that it’s like a walk-a-thon, except at the end your feet don’t hurt… unless you masturbate in a very unusual fashion! If so, we’d like to interview you about it. But we are utterly serious about the rights of people to masturbate and to feel comfortable about it.” 
 
Part of the room is blocked off for women only and the larger part of the room will welcome all genders. A stage at one side will feature entertainment off and on through the day. Most participants say they attend the Masturbate-a-Thon because they love to masturbate and want to be in a space that validates that; others say they are so nervous about doing it, that they realize it might really help them break through fears. 
 
If space allows, a voyeur section may also be included.

Sex & Religion: Five Traditions on Masturbation ⇢

Shilo McCabe’s “I Masturbate” collection will be at CSC!

Shilo McCabe, a queer feminist photographer, is the founder of the Sex Positive Photo Project.  This May she will be showcasing her work at the Centre for Sex and Culture in San Francisco.  This show will feature 30 large images, including brand new pieces, from her “I Masturbate” collection; a series of photos and personal stories about the personal joy and sexual freedom her subjects experience through masturbation. Shilo is a documentary photographer, and her goal is for the audience to see authentic, non-fetishized  images of people just like themselves: no matter their body type/size, no matter their sexuality, no matter their kink, no matter the shade of their skin.  
This is sure to be an amazing show and an incredible experience! Fundraising is currently underway for this project at http://www.indiegogo.com/shilomccabe and there are some great perks available for donors (including prints, limited edition monographs, and even a credit for a photo session with Shilo herself!).  Stop by her indiegogo site and consider making a donation, and be sure to visit the show at the Center for Sex and Culture this May! 
What Shilo has said about this project:
while speaking on a sex-positive panel at Mills College I was asked if I had any tips for becoming more sex-positive.  Without hesitation I said “Masturbate!” Everyone laughed at my response and I realized later that I really had much more to say on the subject. 
 
 
Reducing the stigma around masturbation is important because we are a culture of mixed messages - there is no unilateral message about masturbation…”
 
 
What people are saying about masturbation:

 
I masturbate because I never have to worry about being too much for myself. I have a high libido and a lifetime of conditioning has made me self-conscious about being too intense, too hungry, too sexual, too wet, or too kinky for even my most enthusiastic and generous lovers.”
 
"Masturbation gives me some of my best orgasms. I love it for the orgasms alone, but I also do it to relieve pain, leg cramps, cranky moods, anxiety, and to help me get to sleep."
