This is my first attempt at trying to build a Wiki-like knowledge base on top of the Flutterby content management system.

This is a place for explanation, description and static links on a topic that's either too broad to be covered under a single link, or that you're just too lazy to find the real link to.

Masturbate-A-Thons have always been private events; people masturbated in privacy, as most people do. But The Center for Sex & Culture (which originated the Live Masturbate-a-Thon) is located in San Francisco, where appropriate venues exist to do usually-private things in public. Hence CSC will sponsor its third annual Live Masturbate-A-Thon on May 15th, 2004. Located at a 245 Eighth St. in the SOMA district with plenty of room for women and men to gather separately and together, the group Masturbate-A-Thon will feature a women-only room, a men-only room, and mixed space for couples and singles. (Transsexual participants may choose their preferred room according to their own gender identity.) Separate rooms will be established for a live webcast, and people who enter must sign a release and show ID. No photos will be taken except by permission in the video area only. A break area with refreshments will also be available. Participants must be 18 and over, and no drugs or alcohol will be allowed. There will be a required clothes check.

While The Center for Sex & Culture does not encourage competitive sexual behavior as a matter of course, Masturbate-A-Thon participants who choose to do so can compete for four separate titles. They are: Longest Time Masturbating (we will allow five minutes per hour for water, food, and bathroom breaks; remember that the current record is over six hours, so participants aiming for this prize are suggested to register at 5 p.m.); Largest Group Wank (this refers to groups who register together and stay in their group; each member will receive a prize); Most Money Raised; and Most Orgasms (participants attempting this record can be assigned an Orgasm Recorder to count and validate orgasms, or they can bring their own volunteer to do so). Winners will be announced on site at the end of the event and at http://www.masturbate-a-thon.com after donations clear. Winners will receive prizes donated by Good Vibrations, Titan Media, Naked Sword, Tantus Silicone and other companies.

The Live Masturbate-A-Thon will be held at 245 8th Street in San Francisco. Doors open at 7 pm for general participants and the event must end at 2 a.m. Early registration is available for individuals desiring to compete for the Longest Time masturbating award. Pre- registration is encouraged, but participants may bring filled-out pledge sheets directly to the event on May 15th. People are also encouraged to pledge themselves. Pledge sheets can be downloaded at http://www.masturbate-a-thon.com/pages/register.html. Registration at the door is $40.00 and it's half off if you're participating in the Bay to Breakers. Those who pre-register before May 10th can pay $34.50. Checks should be made out to Center for Sex & Culture (or CSC) and be sent to CSC, 2215-R Market Street, San Francisco CA 94114. Funds from the Live Masturbate-A-Thon and from Good Vibrations's private masturbate-a-thon will assist the Center for Sex and Culture in funding for its library, archive and classes.

Special Guests are Michael Brandon, Carol Queen, Michelle Tea, Kim Airs
