After seeing a thousand late-night supplement ads on TV, you probably have a vague sense that prostate care is important for men. But did you also know that playing with your prostate can feel insanely good, and lead to explosive orgasms? Here’s how to keep your prostate healthy, and have a ton of fun doing so.
All About Your Prostate
First, let’s get familiar with what your prostate is. It’s a small, walnut-sized gland that exists in men, sandwiched between your bladder and rectum. The prostate produces an alkaline fluid that gets mixed in with sperm to create ejaculate. The alkalinity of the secretions protect sperm from the acidity of the vaginal canal, allowing your little swimmers to survive long enough to potentially fertilize an egg. The muscles of the prostate also help push semen out of the penis during ejaculation.
The prostate is a delicate little guy, susceptible to a number of conditions. Prostate cancer is probably the most well-known. The prostate can also become enlarged, infected, or inflamed. It can impact erectile function and urinary control. Older men are most at risk for prostate problems. Talk to your doctor if you ever experience frequent, painful, or burning urination, blood in your urine, or painful ejaculation, as they could all be signs of a prostate issue.
Your Prostate Likes to Be Pampered
Now that the bad stuff’s out of the way, let’s get to the more fun topics. Your prostate simply loves being massaged. The entire area surrounding the prostate is rich with nerve endings, so stimulation feels fantastic. Most men can have orgasms from prostate massage alone (i.e. without any penile stimulation). Not only that, but prostate-induced massages usually feel significantly stronger than regular ol’ orgasms, and some men can have multiple prostate orgasms in a row. Don’t lie—your finger is creeping back to your butthole at this very moment, isn’t it?
Prostate massage can also have some health benefits. Massage improves circulation in the prostate, and prostate orgasms can help drain any leftover fluids. It can relieve pain and swelling, and may even improve erectile function.
How to Massage your Prostate
It’s not possible for you to touch your prostate directly, but you can stimulate it through the front wall of the rectum. The most simple form of prostate massage is to insert a well-lubed finger up your anus, with your palm facing your body. Press around the wall of your rectum gently, until you locate a walnut-sized lump. Once you’ve located your prostate, very slowly and gently make a “come hither” motion with your finger, stroking against the prostate. This should feel good! Feel free to jack yourself off with your other hand. There’s no set amount of time that you need to go for, so stop whenever you feel like it.
Self-prostate massage can be very tricky if you’re not flexible and don’t have long fingers, so you may want to invest in a toy to make the process even more fun. Remember that any toy going up your butt should have a flared base, to prevent your greedy little rectum from sucking it right up.
