Steak-and-Blow-Job-DayOccasionally I go off on a tangent about the odd holiday (or two.)  The last time was at my SpiritualBDSM.com blog, and that instance was about National Handcuff Day.  Well, it’s a new dawn, and it’s a new holiday too.  Today, March 14, 2014, is officially Steak and Blowjob Day.

Like I said about National Handcuff Day:

I wouldn’t kid about such a thing.  Really, I wouldn’t.  Seriously.  I mean, it’s for real.

At the very least, it’s as real as National Handcuff Day too.  The day is big enough it was covered by the Huffington Post1.  It has a Facebook page.  There’s an official Twitter hashtag too – #STEAKANDBJDAY.

And, believe or not, the holiday has a history too!

Some say it was invented by the Romans in 269AD, and institutionalized through St Valentine’s cousin, Claudius Fellatio. Others suggest that when World War II ended in 1945, president Harry S. Truman had the FBI covertly spread the word to act as a “welcome home” for the troops. All we really know, is that Steak and BJ Day is pretty damn awesome.

The overarching theory is one of “Man’s Valentine’s Day.” You know the drill. Every 14th of February men get the chance to display their fondness for a significant other by showering them with gifts, flowers, dinner, and many other romantic baubles. They rack their brains for that one special gift that will show their spouse that they truly care.

Well here’s a little secret: men feel a tad left out.

They’re just too proud or too embarrassed to admit it. Sure seeing that smile on their face is priceless, but that smile is the result of weeks of blood, sweat and consideration. Which is why this very holiday was created.
March 14th is henceforth “Steak and Blowjob Day.” Simple, effective and self explanatory; this holiday has been created so that the ladies can show their man how much they truly care for him.  No cards, no flowers, no special nights on the town; the name explains it all: just a steak and a BJ. That’s it.

Not only will Steak and Blowjob Day be joyous day of sensuality for the men, but it will even instigate more effort during February for the women! It’s win win, gentlemen and ladies.

And, believe it or not, there’s even a “how-to” video . . .

OK, so admittedly the holiday is at least a tad bit sexist.  Isn’t that kind of the point?  I mean it is a tongue-in-cheek holiday – in more ways than one, if you’ll excuse my obvious pun.  Steak and Blowjob Day is supposed to be a sort of anti-valentine’s day, a day to celebrate the clueless male.  And, let’s be honest, most men really are without a clue . . .

Unfortunately, so are a lot of women too.  Absolutely. Freaking. Clueless.

Instead of letting boys be boys and have their fun, some of the (so called) fairer sex got their panties in a bunch over this particular invention.  For instance, let’s look at what’s being said about Steak and Blowjob Day over at JaneDough.com.

“Steak and Blow Job Day” is the White History Month of holidays; the type of delusional push back based on the idea that men are being asked to do TOO MUCH. Attention S&BJ Day fans: Every day is Steak and Blowjob Day. We live in a patriarchal society; if you’re a man, the way our society is is like a personal Valentine to you.

Whew!  Now hold on there sister.  Apparently somebody thinks the battle between the sexes is an actual war!2  It doesn’t need to be like that, I promise you!

I’m a Master, my wife is my consensual slave.  And, I assure you that every day is not steak and blowjob day, Ms McIntyre.  No doubt, my slave is treated better by her mate than you are Colette, but that’s a side effect of her attitude towards her spouse, more than anything.  I mean, Colette even seems to think that wearing nice lingerie is some kind of burden that men use to oppress women:

Oh, so is that why in the days leading up to February 14th women are encouraged to go out and buy expensive and tacky sheer bras . . .

Oh goodness!  Some generic man-type want’s Colette to look nice . . . The horror!  The horror!  Perhaps we need to send Marty Sheen up the river to eliminate this terrible affront to our collective humanity3.

Look folks, life is short.  There’s too little laughing in life too.  Why oh why do we need to turn every little thing into some sexist affront.  There’s a lot more similarities between men and women than there are differences.  And, the enlightened view is that gender isn’t a binary choice anyway, it’s a spectrum.

About the only thing I agree with Ms McIntyre, is when she says:

Valentine’s Day is also for men! If both halves of a couple aren’t getting something out of a holiday meant to celebrate love then they are both doing it wrong.

SBJ_logo_LONG_CLEARI couldn’t agree more!  To be honest, we try and live that every day here in my home.  Everyday here at House of Samadhi is about celebrating love.  Perhaps we show our love in a different fashion than others, but everything we do is about expressing the love (and desire) we feel for each other.

I don’t need Steak and Blowjob Day to balance Valentine’s Day, or any other holiday for that matter.  We live our lives, as much as possible, like everyday is a holiday.  We don’t need an excuse to celebrate love, but give us one, and we’ll take it!
