Ribbed...for somebody's damn pleasure

I swear, ya'll...I really don't go looking for this stuff. I just seems to find me. Oh...and where do I sign up? LOL

Fri Aug 4, 11:34 AM ET LONDON (Reuters) - Hundreds of Britons are being urged to attend what is being branded as Europe's first "Masturbate-a-thon", a leading reproductive healthcare charity said on 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. (Only 200? Now that's a damn shame!)

"It is a bit of a publicity stunt but we hope it will raise awareness" (it's gonna raise something, gurl!), a Marie Stopes spokeswoman told Reuters. "We want to get people talking about safer sex, masturbation and to lift taboos." (I'm not shaking ANYBODY'S hand after this!!)

Participants, who have to be over 18, can bring any aids they need (for some reason, I am NOT touching that statement) and can take part in four different rooms -- a comfort area, a mixed area, along with men and women only areas (how lovely!). 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. (What the fuck?!?! How will they know if a woman is faking? Is there some sort of medical device to test for a real orgasm?)

"The amount you raise will be determined by how many minutes you masturbate and/or how many orgasms you achieve," the Web site said. (I'm getting tired and I need a ciggie after reading this) 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. (They don't want no crust up in the jail!)

Similar events have been staged in San Francisco for the last six years raising $25,000 (13,000 pounds) for women's health initiatives and HIV prevention. If successful, Marie Stopes said it could take place elsewhere in mainland Europe next year.
