The Prostate Organ
The prostate is a walnut-size gland found between a man’s bladder and his rectum. the prostate’s main function is to produce fluid that is expelled as part of semen during ejaculation. The prostate secretes fluid that nourishes and protects sperm. During ejaculation, the prostate squeezes this fluid into the urethra, and it’s expelled with sperm as semen.
It’s also the source of prostate cancer, which is the most common cancer in men. The male G-spot is increasingly becoming a subject of conversation – and prostate massagers are becoming more mainstream – since (straight) men beginning to recognize the health benefits of the massage and how pleasurable it feels to experience a full-body prostate orgasm.
According to the pleasure product company HealthyAndActive, prostate massager sales have increased by 56% over the past five years, particularly among straight men over the age of 45.
Additionally, some doctors are encouraging men to perform regular prostate massages claiming they can potentially help alleviate the symptoms of various health issues.
Here are some potential benefits of prostate massage according to doctors and men’s health experts:
1. It may be able to help treat erectile dysfunction
While there isn’t much scientific literature to definitively prove that prostate massage can improve erectile function, some doctors say that it could potentially help.
“The theory behind the potential benefit involves an improvement in blood flow resulting from vigorous milking or massaging of the prostate. Because erections are largely the result of good blood flow, any increase could potentially lead to better boners,” says Joshua R. Gonzalez, MD, who has his own practice in Los Angeles.
- It can help improve urine flow
Urine should come out in a steady steam, but if a man has a swollen prostate or an inflammation, the prostate can irritate the bladder, causing the urine flow from the bladder through the urethra to be slow or even cut off.
The improvements seen in urine flow from prostate massage again can be the result of decreasing inflammation in the prostate, which may be contributing to a man’s urinary problems.
- It can alleviate painful ejaculation
Painful ejaculation is rare, but it can come from infection or inflammation in the epididymis (a tube near the testicles that stores and transports sperm), prostate, seminal vesicles, and/or urethra. It can also signal a blockage in the ejaculatory duct.
Massage can reduce prostate inflammation and make ejaculation less painful. Manual manipulation of those muscles during prostate massage can further alleviate ejaculatory pain.
- It may be able to help treat prostatitis
Prostatitis is a common inflammation of the prostate gland, which can be caused by a bacterial infection. Symptoms include everything from burning from urination to pain with ejaculation, lousy urine stream, and discomfort in perineum behind the scrotum and in front of the rectum.
While the primary course of treatment for prostatitis is antibiotics, some doctors have been using prostate massage as a treatment method with positive results, though there are no scientific studies to support this.
- It may be able to help alleviate symptoms of an enlarged prostate
An enlarged prostate, or benign prostate hyperplasia (BPH), is extremely common: in fact, according to the National Kidney and Urological Disease Information Clearinghouse, it is the most common prostate problem for men over 50. Like prostatitis, the most common symptoms are painful urination, urinary retention, and frequent urination.
Often, men with BPH can take alpha blockers to relax their bladder muscles and make it easier for them to urinate, or 5-alpha reductase inhibitors to try to reduce the size of their prostate gland by blocking hormones that contribute to prostate growth. A small 2006 case study found that regular prostate massage combined with such medications can also help alleviate symptoms.
- It feels really freaking good
The “male G-spot” is packed with thousands of nerve endings, which means that when you stimulate it, it feels really, really good. In fact, some men report being able to reach orgasm from prostate stimulation alone.
While there is not enough research to suggest that prostate orgasms specifically can lower your risk of prostate cancer, generally speaking, having more orgasms is a good thing for your prostate health: according to one Australian study, men who had five or more orgasms per week were 34% less likely to develop prostate cancer than men who had fewer than one orgasm per week.
