In May 1994, former Surgeon General, Dr. Joycelyn Elders advocated teaching teenagers about masturbation as an alternative to sexual intercourse that may result in unwanted pregnancy. Dr. Elders was fired by the Clinton administration for voicing this innovative idea but, ever since, May has been referred to as “Masturbation Month”.
