1. Sex Toy of the Day - Stroke 29 Lube

    Coming soon… the 2007 Masturbate-a-thon, to be held in San Francisco on May 26th. As the organisers (none other than Lovehoney favourites Good Vibrations) put it, 'In our effort to encourage masturbation pride, we invite you to put the "fun" back in "fundraising" by wanking for a good cause'. Fundraising for what? The Center for Sex & Culture, 'dedicated to sexual freedom and safety, offering classes and workshops that continue to promote a sex-positive reality. Come for this good cause. Wank for the greater good (Stroke 29 Masturbation Lube can help). Jill-off in pride and support. Help keep sex education safe, accurate and fun.'

    If you can't make it to SF, don't worry - you can pledge a masturbator ('select-a-wanker' - sorry, not really), subscribe to a live video feed or just bring yourself off at home for charity. Just don't forget to use lots of lube

    The rules (for those attending) are that 'participants cannot be touched by anyone other than themselves while performing/competing', although 'non-physical forms of stimulation by other people are permissible where consensual': maybe some parents will be on the sidelines to shout their support!

    Participants are meant to keep their space from each other, although it's not entirely clear what happens if a girl's gush catches you square in the eye or, conversely, if a boy's jet of manfat squirts into another participant's mouth. Maybe I'm getting carried away here…

    This actually happened in London in 2006, with funds raised for Marie Stopes and the Terrence Higgins trust, and was filmed by Channel 4, although the documentary has yet to be screened 'due to difficulties with conservatives', according to the organisers. Mary Whitehouse would be proud!
