It is typically celebrated on August 2 in places such as the United Kingdom, Australia, United States, the Netherlands , Germany and Canada.[1][2][3][4][5][6][7] National Orgasm Day is an off-shoot of International Female Orgasm Day (August 8).[8]

International Female Orgasm Day[edit]

International Female Orgasm Day was first celebrated on August 5th, 2007 in Esperantina, Brazil. It was created by the Councilman Arimateio Dantas when he passed a municipal law establishing the holiday in order to raise awareness for female sexuality and reduce stigma and taboo surrounding it, as well as repaying a "sexual debt" to his wife.[9] In addition to the holiday, several events were held in the town for the discussion of these usually taboo topics, with support from local and international communities and the local church.[9]
