Previously, we’ve discussed the many things men can do to try to decrease their risk of prostate cancer or an enlarged prostate. But, what about prostate stimulation? Prostate massage has been mentioned as a way to reduce the possibility of an enlarged prostate. There is also data that the majority of men would give it a try. So what’s holding us back?
Why should I care about my prostate?
An enlarged prostate can also lead to other issues including urinary problems, erectile dysfunction, kidney issues and bladder stones. About 1 in 7 men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer and sometimes, an enlarged prostate can lead to cancer.
How does prostate stimulation help?
Since the prostate gland contains the fluid that nourishes and protects sperm, emptying this gland can help prevent enlargement. It is also immensely pleasurable for many men and nearly 80% of women say that they’d be willing to perform it on their partners. So the question is…
Do you dare to go there?
The prostate can be stimulated with the finger although you might need to do a few stretches and some yoga to reach it yourself. Using a vibrating or non-vibrating device can help reach it if you’re going solo. A partner can use one of these devices on you or they can use their finger. Lubricant is a must! Of course, be prepared for a sensation you may not have experienced before. Your partner can insert their finger and curve slightly towards the front of your body. They should be able to feel a mound the size of a walnut which becomes more pronounced with arousal. Stimulation of this gland should feel very pleasurable.
Forget the embarrassment
Your partner wants you to feel good and you like feeling good. The health benefits of prostate stimulation are just an added bonus.
What are some products that can help?
There are vibrating and non-vibrating devices of all shapes, sizes and colors. It’s really about finding the right one for you. If you’re unsure, start with something small and non-vibrating. A firm structure might be best to assure you can angle and find the right spot. The Aneros MGX is slim, firm and made of body-safe materials. Aneros has made it their mission to design products that keep male anatomy and pleasure in mind. The Saavy Splendid is a vibrating prostate massager endorsed by Dr. Yvonne Fulbright. Its external remote allows control over vibration patterns and intensity. There are also lubricants designed especially for anal use. These lubricants such as Sliquid Organics Natural Gel are more like a gel consistency to stay in place longer.
