Televised Skin-Flute Concert

Zamphere's got nothing on this.

Channel 4 is to bring mass public masturbation to the small screen.

The broadcaster - once led by Michael Grade, dubbed "pornographer in chief" by the Daily Mail - has commissioned a documentary about the UK's first "masturbate-a-thon" as part of a series of programmes dubbed "Wank week", MediaGuardian.co.uk can reveal.

Uhm, Ooooooh Kaaaaaaay... I'm not sure what kind of market there is in the UK for watching a bunch of pervs fapping the night away. I'm not sure that I would want to know either. However, I am not sure which is worse, the fact that the Brits would televise this or the fact that its been going on for five years in the U.S!

The organiser of the event, the San Francisco-based Centre for Sex and Culture, has run mass masturbation events in the US for the past five years to raise money for safe sex groups and plans to replicate the formula in the UK.

I've been to charity car washes, dinners and parties, but never a charity beat-off. I really start to wonder about people...
