It is Steak and Blowjob Day today. Exactly one month after Valentine’s Day and Urban Dictionary defines the sordidly named day as;

“A holiday for men, celebrated the month after Valentine’s Day — a holiday for women. The idea is simple: no cards, flowers, candy or other whimsical gifts. Ladies (and gay men), you simply bestow your partner with a steak and a blowjob. Not necessarily in that order.”

Now, I am anti-valentines. I believe that there should not be just one day a year put aside to appreciate your partner. Relationships take work and effort, so show you care everyday. That being said, you don’t see Steak and Blowjob day being advertised when you walk around town in the months’ build up to it. There aren’t any cards with men’s genitals and steaks surrounded by hearts everywhere. It hasn’t been commercialised, and major chain stores get very little financial gain from the day. However, it’s not really an actual holiday…

safe_imageThe website Official Steak and Blowjob Day also claims that Valentine’s Day is a holiday for women; this self-explanatory named day is there for men who feel, “a tad left out”.

First problem; it suggests men have too much pride and are too engrossed in their egos to ask for nice things. Oh, and steak is quite clearly a man’s food. I love steak. Steak is great. And I am very much a female.

Second problem; we have two gender-stereotyped holidays. Valentines being the day where men almost break their bank balance to shower their allegedly high maintenance other half with expensive jewellery, chocolate, dinner and all things sickeningly pink.

Then there’s the cook me steak and suck my dick to prove you care day for men. The site states,

“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.”

Great! It’s simple and easy. But if you take it seriously, it seems to trivialise what men want from their other halves, and what said partner can give.

It is also a specific day to say, “Thanks for a great Valentines Day!” You should be showing your partner you care and doing nice things for them because you want to, not because you expect them to return the favour in the form of great fellatio and a nice slab of meat, as nice as that maybe. That being said, what about the 364 other days of the year? Why is it there is once again just one day a year to show your boyfriend or Husband you want them to stay around? In no way am I saying cook your partner steak and get on your knees every day of the year, but showing those you love them should never become a chore or an event. There are little things you can do everyday. And sex shouldn’t ever be used as a weapon or ‘treat’. Oh and what about the men who are vegetarian? Or those who dislike *queue gasps* steak and/or oral sex?

However, in light of all this, I want to dislike the slab of meat and fellatio day. I want to find it sexist and offensive. But I don’t. It isn’t a serious day. It’s meant in humour. Who is actually going to stand in front of their partner on March 14th and do the unpleasant thing of demanding a blowjob? And if you are the sort of person to do that, it’s not March 14th that is the problem here. It is you.  Oh, and while this day is specifically for men, any purchases or donations given to the official website give 80% of their profits to charity, including Breast Cancer…

Steaks are awesome. BJs are incredible. Breast cancer sucks major balls. We felt March 14th was chance to tackle all three.
