May is National Masturbation Month!

That’s right, an entire month dedicated to celebrating, creating dialogues, and bringing awareness to one of the safest, most healthiest ways to explore your sexuality: Masturbation.

To celebrate this month-long holiday, I want to highlight your personal stories about masturbation on SLL. (Here’s an example of one story that got featured in this project last year.)

These stories can be anything that has to do with the acknowledgment, glorification, conundrums, and sheer pleasure accompanied with you getting off with your own hands (or toys).

This’ll be a no-hold’s-barred discussion, and you sharing your story will be an empowering gesture towards promoting sex positivity, feminism, and sexual liberation.

And yes, you can choose to be anonymous if you please.
