The prostate is a gland, located just below the bladder and sheathed in the musculature of the pelvic floor, the same muscles that contract during orgasm and ejaculation. The urethra runs from the bladder, directly through the prostate gland and out through the penis. The prostate gland takes on a central role in the male sexual system. Within the gland, small ducts called acini produce prostatic liquid. This liquid mixes with sperm and liquid from the seminal vesicles to become the male ejaculate. The prostate takes on a central role in every male ejaculation, and prostate health is essential for lifelong sexual pleasure and function.
What’s Prostate Massage?
Prostate therapeutic massage is a wholesome and pleasurable activity that may be enjoyed in your personal life. Simply, prostate therapeutic massage is stimulating the prostate with a finger or therapeutic massage tool with the goal of rest and/or pleasure. You can’t ever actually touch the prostate itself, since it is profound within the pelvis. Instead, you stimulate the prostate indirectly either through the rectal wall structure or via exterior perineum massage.
Why is Prostate Massage Pleasurable?
The prostate is part of the male sexual system. It has been active and involved in every ejaculation you have ever had up to this point, you just may not have been aware of it! The contractions you feel just before ejaculation, when the muscles deep in your pelvis tense and relax spontaneously, activate the prostate and squeeze fluid from the prostate into the urethra. So the prostate is already part of your sexual experience – by stimulating it directly you are just accessing more pleasure and sensation from this important part of your sexual anatomy.
Many men find prostate massage to be part of the ultimate sexual experience, and enjoy intense orgasms through prostate touch. This is because through prostate massage you are stimulating the entire male sexual system, inside and out, all at once.
Men are trained to think of their penis as an external organ, somehow separate from the rest of their bodies. Up to two-thirds of the penis extends deep inside the body – which is great news, as it means that your penis is way larger than you previously believed! This root of the penis can be stimulated both from the perineum and from internal anal touch, and when men feel the full length of their penis being pleasured, it transforms their sexual experience.
The anus is also a source of immense sexual pleasure – a fact that some men are reluctant to embrace. The area immediately surrounding the external anal sphincter is one of the most sensitive parts of the human body. These nerve endings are part of the same circuit as your genitals – so anatomically it makes perfect sense that anal touch is erotic. According to the design of the body, it is all one system.
This combination of pleasures is why prostate massage is so exciting and satisfying. Many men report it to be “the ultimate sexual experience.”
Why is Prostate Massage Healthy?
Regular ejaculations keep the prostate healthy by stimulating production of fresh prostatic fluid and bringing fresh blood to the area. Fresh blood flow brings the nutrients and oxygen cells needed to remain healthy and replicate normally. White blood cells are immune-system powerhouses, fighting infections at the cellular level. The prostate is more likely to become infected or cancerous when the gland is stagnant, when blood flow is constricted from muscular tension and lack of stimulation.
Prostate massage manually stimulates the prostate gland, flushing fluid from the gland and encouraging blood flow to the entire pelvis. This can be a highly stimulating or profoundly relaxing experience. As an added bonus, releasing chronic constriction in the pelvis can enhance erections by allowing more blood flow into the penis during arousal. Some men notice dramatic changes in their erectile function after exploring prostate massage.
Many doctors are starting to recommend prostate massage as a healthy and preventative practice! So while pleasure and intense orgasms can be your driving motivations for exploring prostate stimulation, feel good knowing that you are doing something healthy for your body as well!
