SAN FRANCSICO — Good Vibrations has announced a full slate of events and classes scheduled for International Masturbation Month this May, an idea which it pioneered 19 years ago.

The adult retailer’s resident sexologist Dr. Carol Queen will be teaching Maximizing Masturbation with Robert Morgan Lawrence at the Polk St. location on May 8. The same location is hosting a bevy of events, including return engagements with Xanet Pailet (on pleasing a woman) and Marcia Baczynski (on open relationship skills) and, for the first time, Nina Hartley will be teaching an After Hours class on Threesomes.

Presenters Megan Andelloux and Julianne Carroll will visit the Good Vibrations in Brookline, Massachusetts and the new Kearny St. store in San Francisco will see its first class when burlesque star Ellion Ness drops in to teach Stocking Seduction. Mommy's Playdates will take place at Kearny St. and the Palo Alto store.

Humpday Happy Hours, free of charge, will take place at several locations on Wednesdays throughtout the month, covering safer sex, toys, impact play and more.

Madison Young recently released a new memoir, “Daddy,” that explores her life (so far) looking for love and a benevolent, heroic figure in a world of change. Dr. Queen will join her at the Lakeshore store for a Double Daddy book party.
