National Masturbation Day, also known as International Masturbation Day, is an annual event celebrated on May 7 or May 28, to protect the right to masturbate. The first National Masturbation Day was first observed May 7, 1995, after sex-positive retailer, Good Vibrations, declared the day in honor of Surgeon General Joycelyn Elders who was fired by President Bill Clinton for suggesting masturbation be a part of sex education curriculum for students; she was terminated on December 9, 1994.
International Masturbation Day has since been expanded to include the entire month of May as International Masturbation Month.
