Every month of the year is set aside to celebrate or draw awareness to a wide variety of things. The month of August is no exception.

For example, from a medical and social standpoint, the month of August is known as National Immunization Awareness Month, National Black Business Month, Don't Be a Bully Month, Spinal Muscular Atrophy Awareness Month, National Road Victim Month, and World Cancer Support Month.

According to Always the Holidays, August is also known for:

  • National Brownies at Brunch Month
  • Get ready for Kindergarten Month
  • National Catfish Month
  • National Peach Month
  • National Crayon Collection Month
  • Happiness Happens Month
  • National Sandwich Month
  • National Water Quality Month
  • Romance Awareness Month
  • National Goat Cheese Month
  • National Panini Month

Of course, I'm sure nobody forgets special days and weeks in August such as National Watermelon Day on August 3 and National Smile Week from August 5 through August 11.

However, I didn't realize until today that there is another thing August is known for, but thanks to the adult store Pure Pleasure in Hermantown, I now know that August is Anal Sex Month, and I, along with a lot of other people, know that Pure Pleasure isn't letting this month slide by without offering a pretty slick deal.

Pure Pleasure is located at 5193 Miller Trunk Highway in Hermantown, which is a busy highway in the Northland, and they used their big electronic sign to promote their Anal August Sale, which means of course they're offering 20% off all anal products.

That's what a good business does, takes advantage of a special month and offers customers a special deal. However, based on the cars slowing down and even pulling over to take a picture, I get a deep feeling that this is rubbing some people the wrong way. Either way, anyone interested in this special will need to squeeze in any time during the month of August.

**UPDATE: Hours after this story was published, Pure Pleasure censored the sign by replacing two letters with symbols. It now reads A**L AUGUST. Of course, the discount remains.
