THE celebration of National Orgasm Day has been followed by a day of changing the subject, turning over and pretending to go to sleep.
Today’s festivities, which began shortly after midnight, are traditionally themed around non-communication, unspoken embarrassment and buried feelings of shame.
Joanna Kramer of Cambridge said: “I was exultant about National Orgasm Day, as I’m sure the neighbours were aware.
“But immediately it was over I began the next day’s more muted commemorations by remembering I’m too fat, worrying my relationship’s going nowhere and wishing he’d put a bulb in that ceiling light.
“12 hours later, I’m still inwardly cringing and hoping it doesn’t happen again anytime soon. Thanks, National Orgasm Day!”
Librarian Tom Booker said: “I celebrated National Orgasm Day on my own this year.
“At first I felt sorry for myself, but actually I think it makes the next day so much less stressful.”
