There are two main reasons why one would massage the prostate. One, it can be done for medical reasons such as to check the health of one’s prostate and to look for early signs of prostate cancer. The second is for sexual pleasure.
And while getting your prostate checked regularly is super important, we’re going to focus on the latter… massaging the prostate for sexual pleasure.
For reference: a prostate massage may also be called prostate milking.
But before we get going—and for those who aren’t exactly sure, allow us to explain what the prostate is.
What is the prostate?
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that can be found two inches inside of the rectum in men. To be more precise, it is between the rectum and the penis. This gland is made up of connective tissue and glandular tissue, and its main function is to add fluid to semen in order to nourish it.
Essentially, this fluid (prostatic fluid) contains enzymes, zinc, and citric acid that makes semen an ideal substance for sperm cells to live in and to help it transport.
We know, all of this may lead you to believe that prostate fluid merely has a biological function but trust us, there is a heck of a lot of pleasure that can come about during a prostate massage. More on that later…
What are the benefits of prostate massage
There are a number of benefits of prostate massage, which makes it all the more enticing. Indeed, not only does it induce sexual bliss but it’s also good for your health.
Some of the benefits of prostate massage include:
Possible relief from erectile dysfunction
While there isn’t an overwhelming amount of evidence, one 2004 study did find that prostate massage improved the sexual functioning of an elderly man.
It may help with urinary flow
When the prostate is enlarged, one may experience problems with urination such as incomplete bladder emptying, trouble starting urine, or dribbling at the end of urination. With prostate massage however, a 2006 study found that it helped resolve urinary retention and allowed for effective urination in all of the test subjects.
It may help treat prostatitis
Prostatitis is when the prostate is swollen and inflamed. Is there a cure? Possibly! In a study, it was found that prostate massage was helpful for some of the test subjects with chronic prostatitis.
It may enhance sexual pleasure
In keeping with today's topic, massaging the prostate has the power to enhance sexual pleasure. You see, the prostate is often called the “male G-spot” because it can be highly pleasurable when stimulated, and can result in more intense orgasms.
How to massage the prostate
First, you’re going to want to find the prostate. This entails inserting a finger or fingers (or a prostate sex toy) into the anus. Your fingers or toy should be targeting the front wall of the rectum, and if you’re using your fingers you’ll feel a slight bulge. Luckily, prostate sex toys are graciously curved in such a way that you won’t need to worry about finding the right angle. Once you’ve found the prostate, you may feel the need to urinate. This is completely normal, and happens because you’re massaging so close to the bladder and the urethra.
One very important thing to note before you go for prostate stimulation: you simply must be patient and gentle with yourself. If you have never experimented with anal play before, you may want to start small with one finger or perhaps a small butt plug.
Yes, it may take time for anal stimulation to become pleasurable, but the goal is to take your time and never get in a situation where you’re in pain or uncomfortable. This could take weeks or months, it all depends on you and your body. Don’t let this discourage you though because prostate orgasms have been said to be the most amazing climaxes, better than penile orgasms.
One way to work your way up to pleasurable prostate massage would be to engage in anal training. This is when you buy a set of anal plugs of varying sizes. You’ll start with the smallest one until you feel comfortable, then work your way to the larger sizes.
Here’s how to stimulate the prostate with penetration in 3 easy steps:
- Apply a generous amount of lube onto your finger(s) or sex toy, as well as at the entrance of the rectum.
- Insert your fingers or prostate sex toy into the anus, usually about halfway up.
- Begin massaging the prostate in a consistent motion. During this time, you may want to include other forms of stimulation such as penile masturbation or other forms of sexual contact (with a partner).
It really is that simple.
One additional tip that you may want to adopt is to use a douche or an enema beforehand. This will clean out the rectum to reduce any chance of an accident.
What does a prostate orgasm feel like?
A prostate orgasm has been praised by men all over the globe because it’s said to give you full-body orgasms. These super orgasms can cause the entire body to shudder, resulting in bigger and stronger orgasms than penile orgasm. For some, they experience a stream of fast, continuous orgasms that’s unlike anything ever experienced.
During a prostate orgasm, you may not ejaculate but you may release a dribble of milky fluid from the urethra.
Are there any risks involved with prostate massage?
Just like anything else, there are a few risks involved with prostate massage. But all in all, prostate massage is usually risk-free and not dangerous. There are some exceptions however…
Prostate massage risks are often geared towards people who have certain medical conditions. For example:
- Those with acute bacterial prostatitis could experience increased inflammation, and the spread of bacteria to other parts of the urinary tract and/or bloodstream
- Those with fissures or haemorrhoids may experience bleeding and an increased risk of infection
- People with prostate cancer who massage their prostate may see tumour cells break off and spread to nearby tissue
Some addition prostate massage risks for those without medical conditions include:
- Damage to the skin or rectum if an aggressive technique is used
- A small possibility of getting a prostate infection if one’s hands haven’t been washed beforehand
So, gentlemen, are you ready to embark on a new kind of sexual euphoria? Sure, it can be daunting in the beginning, but according to many other men: it is well worth it!
