May is...

Get caught reading month. Though no one is going to have to try very hard to catch the Naughty Ninjas reading because we’re reading MACHINES. Why, we’ve even mastered the advanced ninja skill of reading while asleep to increase our reading time.

And the 6th to 12th of May is International Clitoris Awareness Week. Long live the clit! So what’s Clitoris Awareness Week about? The humble clit has been much maligned and ignored for centuries because of patriarchal religious values—and sheer jealousy. You see, the clitoris boasts the most nerve endings of any human body organ, about 8000, whereas the penis only has about 5000. So it’s men who have clit envy rather than women having penis envy. International Clitoris Awareness Week is about stopping the War on Clits, whether in the form of female circumcision or body-shaming (you know the sort, all those ads pushing feminine ‘hygiene’ at women as if a va-jay-jay is the equivalent of a sewer). You can read more about the work of sponsoring charity organization, Clitoraid, here. How are you going to celebrate your snizz’s birthday?
