If you’ve ever been curious about a prostate massage, you might have many questions about the benefits and risks. Don’t worry; we’ve covered everything that you need to know before engaging in this fun and beneficial massage.
What is a prostate, and why is it important?
The prostate is a small gland between the base of the penis and the rectum. It’s a gland that produces most of the fluid in semen. The urethra runs through the prostate, which is how this fluid is ejaculated. However, it can contribute to various medical conditions when irritated or if it changes in size. Getting a prostate massage can help ease some of these conditions.
What is prostate massage?
Prostate massage massages the male prostate for medical or therapeutic reasons. It can also be done because it feels sexually pleasurable. It anecdotally supports various conditions, including erectile dysfunction and chronic prostatitis. Essentially, a person will insert a gloved, lubed finger into the rectum and gently massage the prostate for a few minutes. Massages shouldn’t be painful but may be slightly uncomfortable.
How does it work?
The purpose of a prostate massage is to help the muscles and nerves around the prostate relax. The massage should be gentle to the prostate. Sometimes, the prostate releases a milky substance when massaged, which is considered “clearing the duct”. This will help a man have a better erection, less pain, and soothe the prostate if it is swollen. Prostate massage for sexual pleasure is similar since massaging the area can cause an erection and even orgasms without ejaculation.
Why you should get a massage
Prostates stay relatively small during the younger years of a man’s life. Around age 40, the prostate can increase and cause various issues. Prostate massage is thought to help relieve symptoms of these medical conditions. It can also be sexually arousing and add spice to your bedroom life. If you’re having trouble with things like urinating or erectile dysfunction, a prostate massage may help you.
Don’t feel shy
Sometimes men can feel shy or embarrassed around having their prostate massaged. Because it involves a rather sensitive area of the body, sometimes shame can creep up. But these feelings are normal and perfectly okay. A prostate massage is nothing to be ashamed of, and plenty of precautions are taken to keep things clean and enjoyable. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with enjoying a prostate massage.
Benefits and risks
Like other massages, there can be benefits and risks. Thankfully, prostate massages are mostly benefits with very few risks.
The main benefit
A prostate massage is thought to help clear out the prostatic duct. This duct runs between the prostate and the rest of your reproductive and urinary systems. Massaging can cause secretion of fluids, clearing the duct, which can eliminate symptoms of various conditions. It can help relax the prostate’s muscles and nerves, easing symptoms like urine hesitancy and erectile dysfunction.
Diagnose medical issues
Having your prostate massaged can sometimes help diagnose certain medical conditions. If your prostate is checked by your doctor, they will pay attention to the shape and size of the prostate and prostate fluids. This can help them see if there is an infection or other problem. As you age, it’s important to have your prostate examined regularly. This will help you prevent any conditions before they happen.
Massage helps with different conditions
Prostate massage is very relieving for many different kinds of conditions. This can include painful ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, urine flow, and prostatitis; by massaging the prostate, you’re helping the muscles in that area relax, which can increase both blood and urine flow. Since the prostate is the muscle that helps you ejaculate, soothing it with massage may even improve your orgasms. Prostate massage is not a cure-all but something that can help ease symptoms.
Improving erectile dysfunction
One of the main conditions many men are concerned with is erectile dysfunction. Prostate massage often helps reduce symptoms of this condition. Since the massage helps to relax the prostate’s muscles and stimulates the nerves pleasurably, many men often get erections during the massage. Over time, the prostate relaxes more and more, and men can get better erections. Prostate massages may need to be repeated to have a long-term effect.
Prostatitis is a common urinary tract problem in men. Symptoms can include issues with urinating, erectile dysfunction, fever, muscle pain, and more. This is often due to the inflammation of the prostate gland. So having it gently massaged can also help reduce the inflammation and provide relief of these symptoms. A doctor may also recommend antibiotics or other drugs if necessary.
It’s sexually pleasurable
Many men find that stimulating their prostate is pleasurable. Sometimes called “milking”, prostate massage is a great way to explore different kinds of pleasure and orgasms. If you’re interested in exploring this, make sure to always use plenty of lube. Go slowly and listen to your body. Nothing should feel painful. You can also explore various sex toys. Many are made specifically for prostate massage. Make sure to read the directions and use appropriate toys to avoid getting anything stuck.
Improve your erections and orgasms
Because the prostate is so heavily involved in helping you get an erection and having an orgasm, any irritation can make both of those things difficult. A prostate massage should soothe your prostate, which, in turn, will help you have better erections. Prostate massages are often considered very pleasurable and can help you have a different kind of orgasm than just penis stimulation.
Prostate massages aren’t painful
While having your prostate massage might feel physically and emotionally uncomfortable, it shouldn’t be painful. The area is sensitive and should be handled gently without too much pressure. Let your massage therapist know if something is hurting so they can correct it immediately. Prostate massages should be a good experience, not something to dread.
Combine with other things for greater benefits
Combining prostate massage with antibiotics can sometimes be helpful. Consult your doctor to see if this is necessary. Pelvic floor therapy may also be explored to help ease symptoms and treat conditions. This is a condition where you cannot relax your pelvic floor muscles. Pelvic floor therapy helps you retrain these muscles. Combined with prostate massage, you can ease symptoms and eliminate different conditions.
Things to be aware of
You may need multiple massages to get the full benefits of a prostate massage. This could be done twice a week for a few weeks before slowing down. Pay attention to your body to see what feels right. Also, your doctor may want to combine prostate massage with other therapies or drugs to help your condition. If you’re exploring prostate massage in a sexual sense, be aware that the prostate is very sensitive, and you need to treat it gently. Don’t be rough with your prostate!
Know the few risks
There are so many great benefits to prostate massage, but there are a few risks you should know about. Massaging the prostate too vigorously may increase symptoms. If you’re not careful inserting fingers or appropriate objects, you may risk an injury to your rectum. It may also cause the worsening of haemorrhoids. If you take care, go slow, and use plenty of lube, you can avoid many of these risks.
Medical vs sexual massage
If you’re concerned about having a genuine medical issue with your prostate, it’s important to check with your doctor first. They will have the best information to help you relieve your symptoms. Personal or professional massage exploration can worsen symptoms if they’re not treated correctly. However, if you’re just interested in the sexual aspects of prostate massage and understand the few risks, you can lay back and have a great time.
The pros outweigh the cons
It’s easy to see that prostate massages have more benefits than negatives. By being careful and prepared, many of the negatives are easily avoided. There’s nothing to worry about if you take your time or hire a professional. Your prostate is sure to be feeling great after a prostate massage. It’s worth trying, whether you have a condition or want to explore something new.
Exploring prostate massage at home
If you’re interested in exploring prostate massage without a doctor, there are many ways to do so safely and with a lot of fun at home. You can enjoy a prostate massage with a little prep work or with a partner. Cleanliness is important – you may consider an enema or simply washing before and after. Use a glove or condom to keep anything being inserted clean. And use plenty of lube to keep things slick and feeling great. Go slow, take your time, and have fun exploring a new level of pleasure!
Hiring a professional
Interested in prostate massage? You might want to consider hiring a professional erotic masseuse. Many erotic masseuses are trained in prostate massage and know how to take care of you. You may find that exploring prostate massage in an erotic setting brings a whole new level of fun to it. Skip the cold doctor’s office for a warm and sexy atmosphere. Let a beautiful woman gently massage you and ease your symptoms instead.
