Posted by Carolyn Eagle on
Prostate play toys are one of the fastest growing categories at Naughty North as more and more folks discover the prostate's potential for pleasure. This small gland has had a bad reputation in the past for the health concerns that can come from prostate problems but what if we told you that paying attention to, and pleasuring your prostate, actually has enormous health benefits? Read on and find out all about why prostate play can keep the doctor away!
Where is the Prostate?
The prostate is a part of the male reproductive system, which includes the penis, prostate, seminal vesicles, and testicles. The prostate is located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum. It is about the size of a walnut and surrounds the urethra (the tube that empties urine from the bladder).
What does the prostate do?
- Plays an important part in ejaculation, urinary flow, general sperm maintenance and even erection control.
- Contains the sphincter that controls urine
- Creates prostatic fluid that helps to nourish sperm
- Contains the muscles driving ejaculation, so it’s responsible for the pumping action.
- The sensory nerves that control an erection run on the exterior of the prostate
- It is believed to help set the consistency of the sperm (i.e. thickness).
The idea of inserting a finger or an anal toy of some sort into their anus grosses them out or downright freaks them out. If you find yourself relating to this dilemma, don’t count it out unless you’ve actually tried doing so. You’d be surprised to know that there are major benefits to massaging the prostate that goes beyond sexual aspects.
What are the benefits of doing a prostate massage?
1. Prevention of Prostate-Related Illnesses
Let’s countdown the most common illnesses/diseases of the prostate. There’s prostatitis, BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia), and of course, prostate cancer. Suffice it to say, proper and regular prostate milking paves the way for prevention of these unwanted conditions.
Prostate massaging can help in eliminating prostatic fluid build up, which leads to prostatitis. Trust us, you would not want to acquire prostatitis, which is also known as painful inflammation of the prostate. Symptoms include spots of blood in the urine, painful ejaculations and stinging feeling during urination, as well as aches in the joints.
Moving onto BPH, simply known as an enlarged prostate, makes it very hard for you to urine properly and without pain. This can escalate to having bladder infections (UTI) as the urine is not released and proceeds to be backed up in the bladder. Lastly, there’s prostate cancer. No need to elaborate on the big “C” and its implications. Simply put, better and improved functions of the prostate due to milking aids in cancer prevention.
2. Improved Function
It just follows that as prostate massaging can help in preventing illnesses, it can improve overall functions as well. Regular massaging stimulates the prostate and allows for the release of fluids and promote blood flow in the area. This activity alone improves normal functions such as urine flow and prevents build up that may cause inflammation and swelling.
More than that, prostate milking has also been related to increasing the ability to overcome impotence among men. This is because of the increased circulation and stimulation for proper seminal fluid flow.
3. Better Sexual Performance
We can’t talk about prostate massage and not relate it to better sexual performance and pleasure, right? So let’s get right to it. Regular milking of the prostate enhances your ejaculation--to the point that it “explodes,” so to speak.
An ejaculation due to the stimulation of the prostate can be much more intense than that of a penile one. Not only can you benefit from it but there’s a 99.9% chance that your partner would also have a grand time teasing and massaging you, resulting to a more excitable romping.
How do you massage the prostate properly?
Now that you’re convinced of the major advantages of prostate massage to your health, it’s now time to figure out how to do it properly. It’s more than simply inserting fingers or a kind of anal sex toy. There’s a method to it and to make it effective, you have to know how to do it properly to yourself or to your partner.
Clean & Clear Beforehand
Whether you’re doing it on your own or with the help of a partner, it’s just sensible to clean up before anything else. It’s highly recommended to do a prostate massage after you’ve pooped--for lack of a better word--and then proceeding to clean it. Milking your prostate would feel a whole lot like you want to do number two but it’s just a feeling. So in order to actually doing so and causing yourself to be in the middle of an embarrassing and messy situation, just clear it out already as a way of prepping yourself for the massage.
Probe With The Right Tool
Sure, you can use fingers to do it but for hygienic purposes, we strongly advise that you go for a recommended anal toy or accessory that’s specially designed for prostate massaging. Fingers can cause infections and with too much pressure, the nails can also scratch the inner lining of the rectum unintentionally.
Since prostate massage is not only good for your sexual performance but also for your health, it’s much better to just invest in a good quality toy that you can use. Also don’t forget getting the right lubricant and condoms to be on the safer side.
Prostate massagers, which also includes dildos, come with a base to guarantee that there won’t be any unwanted emergency situations. These anal tools are structured and shaped in such a way that matches the inside. It’s also meant to reach and properly probe the perineum. Normally, the length should be somewhere around 4 to 5 inches. These prostate massagers don’t definitely come as a one-size-fits-all deal so it’s better to experiment first to find which one suits you best.
Rub It The Right Way
Cover up your prostate massager and lube up using a silicone-based lubricant. Apply a generous amount before proceeding to assume a crawling or doggy-style position with your butt propped high. Holding onto the handle or base, gently insert your prostate massager of choice around 4 to 5 inches in your rectum. The pointed end should be positioned downward to ensure that it hits the prostate gland.
Hitting that sweet spot may cause arousal and may even cause you to get hard. Once you’ve found it, slowly pull it back at least a good 2 inches before sliding it back in. You can repeat this process about 5 to 10 times, applying a little bit more pressure with every round.
For the last rounds, slide the massager in and apply pressure as you hold it for 7-10 seconds. Exhale and relax as you slowly jiggle and pull the massager back out. Repeat the process for once or twice more to complete the exercise.Of course, if you’re using it as part of your sexual activity, you can proceed as you please up until the point that you ejaculate. To each their own process and level of pressure and if you’re completely new to prostate milking, then it’s highly advisable to take it in little increments until you find your own groove and rhythm.
