OK - well at least its not another gruesome/sad/heartbreaking news story http://www.theaustralian.news.com.au/story/0,25197,23032131-12377,00.html Masturbators come together in Copenhagen From correspondents in Denmark | January 10, 2008 HOT on the heels of San Francisco and London, Copenhagen is to host a masturbate-a-thon in May which organisers hope will help break lingering taboos about self-love. Pia Struck Madsen, a sexologist in the Danish capital, said her goal was to see men and women from all backgrounds join an event that promised "pleasure, relaxation and sexual self-discovery". "Masturbation is positive, safe and an erotic alternative," she said ahead of the event on May 31, to take place at a yet to be decided venue with separate rooms for men, women and those who don't mind mingling. The original masturbate-a-thon took place in San Francisco in 1998, with participants raising money for good causes. Now an annual event, it was followed by a similar event in London in July 2006.
