It’s May! It’s May! The lusty month of May!

When I was a kid, I loved listening to musicals. I would sing along to my mom’s records as often as she’d let me, holding a toilet paper tube as a microphone and belting out my own off-key (but enthusiastic!) renditions. Eliza Doolittle’s Cockney-accented “Just you wait, ‘Enry ‘Iggins” was a particular favorite of mine.

So was anything-and-everything Julie Andrews.

Even if you don’t have the same fond memories of this song as I do, I hope you agree: May tends to be a lovely time of year.

In the US, May is considered National Mental Health Awareness Month.


May is also… 

International Masturbation Month.

Coincidence? Or fate?

I’ll let you decide.

  1. Thank goodness for May. Beltane, May Day, Pacific Islander Month, Mental Health Month, Masturbation Month–what’s not to like about May? I and Miss Michigan (aka Rosie Palmer) wish you and your wand a most delightful May–what’s left of it, at least, which is enough, just enough, more than enough. Go blissfully astray.


  2. Love that song from Camelot. Saw the movie a zillion times. I can see Vanessa Redgrave frolicking around the May Pole in my head right now. Will play Julie’s version after we speak. Love the connection you made between both Masturbation month and Mental Health month. Also wonder if the first is connected to the ancient version of May day of Beltane- sexual fire and heat and so much more.

    1. Intriguing possibility! Since Good Vibrations was the place that (I believe) first agitated for a “masturbation month” — and they tend to be staffed by very sex-pro, sex-aware Bay Area folks — wouldn’t surprise me if they had Beltane in mind!

      Though, on the “sheer coincidence” side of the argument: May is also the time for observing National Bike Month, National Building Safety Month, and Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. *sigh* So many things to remember, so few months in which to do so… 😉
