LONDON - Hundreds of Britons are being urged to attend what is being branded as Europe's first "masturbate-a-thon," a leading British reproductive health care charity said Friday.

Marie Stopes International, which is hosting the event with HIV/AIDS charity the Terrence Higgins Trust, said it expected up to 200 people to attend the sponsored masturbation session in Clerkenwell, central London, on Saturday.

"It is a bit of a publicity stunt, but we hope it will raise awareness," a Marie Stopes spokeswoman told Reuters.

"We want to get people talking about safer sex, masturbation and to lift taboos."

Participants, who have to be over 18, can bring any aids they need and can take part in four different rooms a comfort area, a mixed area, along with men and women only areas.

However, the rules on the event's Web site states there can be no touching of other participants, nor are people allowed to fake orgasms.

"The amount you raise will be determined by how many minutes you masturbate and/or how many orgasms you achieve," the Web site said.

The Marie Stopes spokeswoman said local religious groups had been initially outraged, but after people had heard what the event was about, most had approved it.

Police had also given it their approval.

Similar events have been staged in San Francisco for the last six years raising $25,000 for women's health initiatives and HIV prevention. If successful, Marie Stopes said it could take place elsewhere in mainland Europe next year.

Can we expect Reuters to photoshop the cum shots (get it, cum shots?) to boost the effect on the audience?
like they do with the bombings

We had something like that at my school here. It was some sort of masturbation marathon for charity, and a fairly attractive young lady won.

I never actually thought I'd see a day where such things could be used to raise money for charity :p....

Well, I guess I've been proved wrong...but...how can they tell how long they've been masturbating? Is there going to be people walking around checking it out :eek: ?

They thought of the British masturbating in large numbers is enough to bring bile to my throat.

You're missing the positive side. While they are masturbating they won't be reproducing.

Wouldn't "Wank-a-thon" have been a much better name for it? "Masturba-thon" just sounds really awkward...and droll.

Wait, you can have more than one? How long will this wank-a-thon last?

It usually takes me about 3 hours to, you know, "regenerate" so I can achieve another climax.

Really? Wow. I can always manage at least two, and the second is generally better than the first. But I need to excercise more, because I tend to get tired out way before the little fella does.

Maybe I should be in porn.

Well, I'd need references, but I'm sure I could find a "position" for you.


Business, eh? Can I buy stock?

That's a little creepy, but...yes, yes you can.

Yeah, sorry about that, it was the best I could come up with. I also had an "I'm more of a work-from-home kind of person" joke, but that would've been lame.

Edit: "Business, eh? Now there's a hostile takeover that benefits everyone!"

That's what I should have said.

That's pretty disgusting considering the fact it's the British and when I remember that early pregnancies article. And sadly, the Brits themselves make me dislike them more and more, day after day.

well, when people don't know what to do... it happens. ask why it aren't going to happen in Ethiopia or in Muslim world.
and the_GoDdEsS, yes, they all worry about you. in fact, you opinion matters the most.

absolutely. jizz-a-thon would work too if it wasn't for the female participants..

aside from that, er, i'm pretty weirded out. we once had a masturbation month at school, though. it involved wearing "get off!" tshirts, watching "educational" (ha, ha) videos and trips to Toys in Babeland.

twas a blast.
