May brings with it the beginning of Winter, when animals start to ready themselves for hibernation, and the air is suddenly crisper and cooler and the colours change from green to orange. Since nature seems to be getting ready to stay indoors and practice self love, it makes sense that May is Masturbation Month. We’re sure most fans of self-pleasure would agree, winter is the best time of year for staying under the covers and getting in touch with yourself.
Sure, May is a biggie for us South Africans – what with the National Elections and Mother’s Day on the horizon – but it’s also OK to give yourself some love this month and celebrate the glory that is Masturbation Month. Launched in 1995, the unofficial sex-positive holiday has gained popularity since its inception 24 years ago. The holiday provides a unique opportunity to get people talking about self love and encourage conversations about sexual wellness – it’s all about expressing your sexuality and embracing yourself. And if that wasn’t enough motivation, experts say that masturbation relieves anxiety and helps you sleep, so… you know…
While it is true that you don’t really need anything to enjoy some one-on-one time with yourself, local online store Matilda’s wants to help you out this month by introducing you to a handful of products that can enhance your time alone or with your partner – because, of course, masturbation doesn’t need to be a one-player game.
