Oh yes! It's that month of the year again; read about it, do the quiz, talk and think about it at various events, earn some money for a cause. Or join in: the fun should be well underway in about 7 hours. (All links NSFW. I wonder why. Do you wonder why?)

Metafilter sure is losing it.

It's shit like this that makes me wonder about the waning quality of this site.

Oh, please. It's as newsworthy as any of the other crap on the frontpage... unless you're uptight.

Jeez, ya grumpy non-masturbators! Get a grip, as it were.

Anyway, here's a great first-hand report from Globalgasm.

I think this is great. I live only a few blocks away from Good Vibrations. They are a forward thinking sex-positive outfit that is trying to promote human sexuality as a natural, healthy, clean and fun aspect of our lives.

I've sponsored two different women in the past for the M-a-thon. Its a great way to raise money and awareness.

Funny, I thought that the suicide bomber flash posts signaled some sort of demise. [this is good]

I gotta admit, some of it is inappropriate, and should have been marked as such. I have to agree with crunchland though, it is as newsworthy as anything else.

The odds are good that you'll get your wish and the links will be deleted. Too have to love yourself before you can love the world, yes?

I'm of the mind that the clear NSFWing did just that.

A content heads up might well have been nice ... urgh ...

sigma7, believe it or not, I didn't know what that meant. On hindsight, ya, I see. Unfortunately, maybe there are still some people out there who don't know all the acronyms (like me).

Funny, I would have sworn it stood for Never Say Free Willy.

Fair enough. I wasn't meaning to be snarky... in fact, it was rather presumptuous of me to assume everyone knew what NSFW meant. My bad.

discussing people killing people = always appropriate

discussing people humping people = hardly ever appropriate.

it's not metafilter that's out of wack, its our "value" system.

the puritan nature of Adult Behavoir has limited our ability to discuss Adult matters, and therefore ignorance and very stale and drab existances.

Instapundit gets a zillion hits and barely gets any attention. makes me sick.

Oh, and if anyone can't read that Globalgasm article in Word format, here it is in PDF. Because I live to serve.

Also, in keeping with the theme, I recommend everyone go listen to Tweet's "Oops (Oh My)," my current favorite ode to female masturbation.

(I looked over to the left)
Umm I was looking so good I couldn't reject myself
(I looked over to the left)
Umm I was feeling so good I had to touch myself

Thanks Ariel, nice article! I've never joined yet, Globalgasm takes place around 5 in the morning where I live, and I don't even have a webcam, so.... No, I'm sure that's not what it's about.

Re: appropriateness; on second thought I agree that I was a bit hasty in posting, and should have been more explicit in describing what this is about.

FYI: The "official" gathering is 8pm Pacific. But any orgasm during the first 24 hours of the month can be focused toward the Globalgasm cause!

The main thing to remember is that even if you are physically by yourself, you are NOT alone. :)

FYI, it's also New Zealand Music Month. There is no correlation between the two.

The yiddish word for "penis" is "schmuck". Used in context, a "schmuck" is a guy who lets his penis rule his life. Bill Clinton was a schmuck par excellence. Globalgasm is a schmuckfest.

Ooh, nice one, mikegre! Now can we call GW a putz for balance?
posted by y2karl at 7:38 PM on May 1, 2002

Putz wouldn't balance it, that's just more of the same. A suitably folkoric-sounding equivalent for "vagina" is very absent in yiddish.
Lots of people achieve globalgasm without touching a schmuck.
