Auto-Eroticism Marathon Comes to Town
- Do-it-To-Yourself sex record attempts in aid of charity

Auto-Eroticism Marathon Comes to TownHUNDREDS of people will be pleasuring themselves for charity next month as London stages its first Masturbate-A-Thon.

Gathering in a hall in Clerkenwell on the 5th of August, men and women are to masturbate, some for hours on end as they attempt to break the world record of eight and half hours continuous self-stimulation. Record attempts at the most orgasms in a specified time are also set to feature.

Run by the California-based Centre for Sex and Culture, which has organised Masturbate-A-Thons in the US for several years, the event aims to raise tens of thousands of pounds for sexual health charities.

"We want everyone who attends to help us send the message that masturbation is a positive erotic alternative, good for you, and just plain pleasurable!" said a spokesperson for the CSC.

To accommodate different levels of shyness, participants have the choice of masturbating in single-sex rooms, mixed areas or, for the exhibitionists, on a stage.

Channel 4 is to make a programme on the proceedings, with a provisional broadcast date set for the end of the year.

"It's time to find out if the only things allowed to be stiff in Britain are upper lips," said a spokesperson for Zig Zag, the production company filming the event for Channel 4.
