Charity just got hands on.
Don’t you wish you could do something better with your time?
If you’re like most of the adult world, you spend your days working for a certain numbers of hours, and when you’re not working, you’re probably making the most of your free time (while dreading the work yet to come).
What do you do with your free time? If you’re a modern day saint, you might volunteer with a charity or an inspirational cause. Otherwise, you might be kicking back with friends and family, going out for a night on the town or a wild weekend binge. Or perhaps you prefer to stay home and relax.
Now let’s be candid. If you’re a guy, you know that staying home to relax most likely includes one popular pastime.
Thanks to our biology, boys get pretty handsy early on, and many of us learn without any help how to keep ourselves busy. Of course, much to our disappointment, we’re told by just about everyone that our newfound hobby is either dirty, immoral, sinful, or just plain gross. While that doesn’t stop us (trust me, if any man says he doesn’t do it, he’s lying), it certainly may induce a feeling of shame into the process.
Now for the good news, men! You no longer have to feel guilty about beating your meat, because this new adult site just changed the game.
One of the biggest reasons why society has long rebuked masturbation is because it’s often an entirely selfish act.
The strictest moralists among us may use religion to argue that sexual acts should only happen with the ultimate goal of procreation, citing the biblical story of Onan, who God smote after the man spilt his own seed instead of impregnating his widowed sister-in-law.
Over time, this same puritanical notion has developed into claiming that the deed was unclean, unhealthy, and even downright dangerous (You’ll go blind!) Those threats haven’t stopped most men, who The Blot estimates spend over 40 days of their lives self-stimulating. Considering that an estimated 15% of all websites are porn-related, or that a quarter of all internet queries somehow involve sex, it’s fair to say that masturbation is much less a taboo today.
Wank for the World
If nothing else, jerking off is a one-sided task. But two Stanford students decided to change that.
Though they set off to develop an app that would help people meet for lunch to avoid eating alone, students using the names Adam Lee and James Cook soon abandoned their plans “after a drunk night partying at frats.” Instead, they focused their project on something a bit more universal.
Now, every time you watch a video on IJustCame.org, the website will give a penny to one of several different charities. Here’s how they picked who to work with.
Lending a Helping Hand
Like masturbation, porn has become a taboo subject in today’s society and is often condemned as inciting violence or unrealistic expectations in viewers.
To combat those stereotypes, or at least to work towards a more sex-positive image, IJustCame.org is working with charities that fight against sexual assault.
Among these? Organizations that support victims of sex crimes, such as the Joyful Heart Foundation, as well as charities like the Movember Foundation and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
Of course, there’s a catch.
