National Orgasm Day. Yep, so that’s a thing.
Make a note in your diary as 31st July marks a holiday dedicated solely to celebrating your sexual climax. (Sadly it’s not one that’ll grant us with a day off work). While us Brits are known for being prudes, swaying the topic far away from any mention of sex, over half of the population have owned up to possessing a sex toy. Which is pretty ironic. That being said, if you’re in search of getting the most out of this national holiday, we’ve found five ways for you to celebrate, er, enjoy I guess?
Fake it until you make it… As far as we know, this idiom wasn’t created with the bedroom in mind but that didn’t stop you faking it on your last scandalous night out. In hope of stopping Londoners from faking their next orgasm, there’s a photo booth popping up at Boxpark Shoreditch, where you’re asked to pose with your best ‘O’ face. Convinced you’ve hacked it? You might not be so sure after you see the outcome… Just, er, make sure it’s not your usual sex face if your boyf is hanging around…
Where: Boxpark Shoreditch, 2-10 Bethnal Green Road, Shoreditch, E1 6GY
Orgasms have always been a bit of a touchy subject, except when it’s the high school football hooligans bragging about getting it on with Stacey (and her mom). AM:Appointment are on a mission to destigmatise the topic with a series of talks and panels offering advice to women on how to achieve their best orgasm with a cheeky bit of self play. So why not join the experts this National Orgasm Day for an evening of workshops, panel talks and a chance to ask your questions about sexual pleasure too. You’ll even leave a bag full of pleasure goodies!
Where: Sh! Women's Erotic Emporium, 31-35 Pitfield Street, Hoxton, N1 6HB
Granted sex parties have a bit of a bad rep, and we’re not suggesting you go out on the prowl without doing some research beforehand! (Safety first and all that). To help you out, we’ve whittled down a few of London’s best posh sex parties for those looking to get in the spirit of this questionable national day…

Finding a soulmate is harder than ever in this day and age. Yes, there’s Tinder or Bumble to roam (or swipe) through but searching for Mr or Mrs Right behind a screen has its limitations. While we can’t guarantee you’ll be getting getting down and dirty on the first night, signing up for a themed singles night is a great alternative and gets you out chatting to your next potential lover.
A great ice breaker is a battling session of laser tag obvs! Star Commander Laser Tag is running speed dating laser nights every Saturday night throughout August for singles looking to mingle (with your very own flash gun). Or if you’re looking to show off your abs and work up a sweat try out date-ercising at Right Path Fitness.
Sex toys. It’s said over half of the British population owns (at least) one, so why not widen your sphere. From butt plugs to vibrators fabricated as lipsticks to complex and bewildering toys that should come accompanied with a beginners guide for dummies on where to stick them, there’s something for every orifice… oops, sorry we meant person. We’ve created a guide to a few of the best sex toys that’ll spice up your National Orgasm Day.
