It was 11 a.m. on Sunday morning, and the masturbatorium was quiet. The chairs in the voyeur section were mostly empty, just a few early birds in the front row. I slipped off my flip-flops and crossed behind the rope, into the area of the room that would soon be live-streamed onto the Internet.

I had decided I would start with the man in the farthest corner of the room. He was willing to talk, so I settled down on a pillow near his head. I was wearing a dress, so I did this carefully, knees together, like a lady.

"You're pretty," the man observed as I opened my laptop. He told me he was glad the paper had sent a young female reporter.

Yeah, we did that on purpose, I told him.

The man's name, for today, would be "Joe." He had a slight Virginia accent, but right now, he lived in Vegas. He was a white guy, with thin legs, short, gray hair and rosy cheeks. "Joe" hadn't done much to prepare for today, he told me, except take a shower.

Typing busily, I asked him to talk about his background and what had brought him here today.

Joe told me he was an exhibitionist. He liked women to watch him masturbate. Like me, for instance. Even though I was clothed, that was okay.

Joe wasn't clothed at all.

"Am I the first guy you've interviewed while he's 'necking'?" he asked, rubbing his dick enthusiastically.

The Center for Sex and Culture is apparently inept at advertising this supposedly "huge" fundraising event. The calendar on their own web site is silent on the Masturbate-a-thon while advertising weekly j/o groups and other events. They don't seem to care about it any more or only want locals who know about it to show up. Maybe they realized it's jumped the shark and are scaling back. I can't get excited about it the more I read from first-hand accounts. Really, can't get excited.

I love San Francisco. A True American City. The City allows one to do what they want as long as you don't violate anybody else's life, liberty, or happiness. The cannabis smoker in me would LOVE to live there. It's too bad the wealthy gentrified the shit outta that great city.

*people should not feel guilty about masturbating.

People should feel guilty about masturbating, but there is nothing normal about being sexually obsessed. Its another form of escape from reality like drug addiction or alcoholism. There needs to be more open discussion about this topic.

I suggest you read it again, my "Anonymous" friend. The report says no one "looked under 40", not that no one "was" under 40. Perhaps you looked older than you really are?

Are there any parents here who would allow their 13 year old to not only view/read this content but to also engage adult strangers in a discussion about it? I'm all for indulging one's pleasures but how about doing it responsibly? There are porn sites that do a better job at ensuring children are not exposed to age inappropriate content. What is so special about this ad venue that makes it exempt? Do the editors at SFWeekly feel that because they are 'journalists' that they are somehow exempt from behaving like responsible adults in the company of children? If they don't prevent children from accessing it they are, in effect, allowing children to consume adult content. And yes, though it would be great if parents could be the sole gatekeepers of what their children are exposed to that's really hard to do. It seems to me that as adults we have a collective responsibility to assist or at the very least not make it more difficult by being lax about our standards around children. This is not a liberal, conservative, moral or ethical issue- it's simply a practical issue of protecting children until they have sufficient judgement to engage in adult activities safely.

It looks like Obama may perhaps be wasting his time refuting Ahmadinejad considering the fact that loads of American�s were lumping Ahmadinejad as one to the same class with President obama�yet if Obama might be trusted, and who knows in this case, I'm guessing this can be the one instance where The president is not going to blame Bush.

"On the plus side, one of them had come while listening to his friend talk about her dissertation. That, I thought, was beautiful."

Lois, dear, these two sentences just made my day.

Sexsage,

I totally understood your quote in its context! No worries. (I did tweet it out of context, but that's my bad). Thanks for your thoughts. It's interesting to be reminded how even the most extraordinary events depend so much on logistics. Sort of a 'duh' thought, but one of the reminders I walked away with.

Oops...please replace the words 'you' in my above comment, to 'they', and the words 'your' to 'their'. My apologies.

The strangest thing about this event, is the fact that the Center for Sex and Culture don't even promote it on their own site.

Such a shame that Nina Hartley just sat there yakking over the mike, when it was obvious that she could have done a lot more to inspire the women. Perhaps you can get someone fresh with a bit of flair for next year. Nina is a bit of old news these days. Annie Sprinkle would have given the event what it needed! And the rooms? Geez, you guys need a bit of decor'. And as far as your marketing goes...well, you really did blow it hey. Very late and not very inspiring at all. Your official logo is an animal with a cock? I think you got what you deserved in the end. Lots of cock.

This was a really good article. Informative and insightful, but also thoroughly enjoyable thanks to Beckett's dry sense of wit. It's a shame to learn that the event this year was apparently off-putting to women. There is a line between normalizing masturbation and sensationalizing it. Hopefully the organizers will better understand this distinction next year and attract a more positive response from all participants.

Thanks for your comments--I really appreciate them. It's always good to hear that people feel they've been represented fairly.

Anonymous the first, sorry I missed interviewing you.

So very well written...Your vivid description takes people not only to the visuals of the event but inside the heads of the participants and into the feelings involved.I am so glad they sent you, even if you didn't allow me to look at you.

Hi Lois,Nice article. I liked that you didn't use it as a judgment on the people who were there or on the event it self. I can see how a topic like this (that was not your choice to cover) would be difficult to cover objectively. You accomplished that. I am hoping that your article will help the organizers make some changes for the better next year. Nice meeting you and that dissertation was something special!

   How would any parent even KNOW their 13 year old kid was reading this kind of stuff on the internet?  HOW?   The only way to prevent it to get rid of all computers, or other internet devices!

You don't reeeeally believe the person writing that comment is/was 13 do you?  How many 13 year olds use the word guffaw?  Come on - sites like this have tons of trollers that have lots of "issues"... this guy apparently gets off on getting people to think he's 13.

Masturbating is not an inappropriate activity for a 13-year-old, or even younger. They do it on their own anyway. It's better to portray it as normal and to show how to do it better or safer than to hide it or treat it as wrong. I also suggest that the event-holders strongly remind young people that masturbation is normally a private (but not necessarily solitary) affair.
