When Is Steak And BJ Day & What Is It? Why Men Expect Blowjobs On March 14

We are sure you've asked yourself recently, "When is Steak and BJ Day!?"

Well, ladies and gentlemen, Steak and Blowjob Day — also affectionately known as Steak & a BJ Day, Steak and Knobber Day and Valentine's Day for Guys — arrives each year on March 14.

This holiday is a real thing, albeit satirical, and it will soon be upon us.

It's no surprise that Steak and BJ Day is celebrated exactly one month after Valentine's Day (a holiday for women, apparently ... who knew?) in order to give men a turn being doted upon.

And yes, we are definitely rolling our eyes, too.

While many still view Valentine’s Day as a day when — in the United States, at least — men are expected to buy their significant others flowers or chocolates and devote themselves to proving their love in a (mostly) monetary sense, Steak and Blowjob Day is meant to be quite the opposite of that.

It’s a day devoted to servicing your man’s meat and … serving him meat as well!

Many women are confused as to why this satirical holiday is what men would consider their answer to Valentine’s Day, the centuries old holiday on which men and women alike are supposed to express love for their partner or spouse, and not just expect sexual favors.

Valentine's Day clearly isn’t only intended for the ladies, but good luck convincing guys of that when steak and BJs are on the line.

Still, despite the confusion take that this is a rational "answer" to a romantic holiday, it’s pretty obvious why men would be excited by the prospect of a day on which they get pampered — in more ways than one — by their significant other. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand what guys were thinking when they set out to create it, either.

Still, it is like any other holiday in that you can choose whether or not you want to participate, although your refusal might be taken a little bit personally by that special man in your life.

You can even see it as a fun way to introduce him to the concept if he hasn’t celebrated this one before.
