Prostate massages have been performed for centuries both for pleasure and for medical reasons. Also known as prostate milking, the process may be done internally and externally. Internally, it involves inserting into the rectum a finger or one of the prostate massagers out in the market. Externally, it requires stimulating the prostate through the perineum, but this is not as effective as the internal version.
It’s never too early for any man to start thinking about the health of his prostate. Although prostate dysfunction is more likely to afflict men in their 50s and older, even younger men can have prostate trouble, especially if it runs in the family.
For men over the age of 40, prostate problems are common. As men age, their prostate tends to swell, or become infected and men are more susceptible to prostate cancer. Prostate problems including Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH) or enlarged prostate, prostatitis, and cancer are extremely common. In fact, eight in 10 men will eventually develop an enlarged prostate and one in 10 men will develop prostate cancer.
The male gland is responsible for producing a large percentage of a man’s ejaculate, and it is healthy and desirable to fully drain this fluid regularly. With a little care and knowledge of your prostate, you can keep yourself healthy and pain-free.
Massaging the prostate gland can be very beneficial in draining the highly painful build up of seminal fluid in men with a chronically inflamed or an enlarged prostate.
Prostate massage, when performed on a regular basis, can be used as a preventative treatment against prostate cancer. It is good for prostate health in general, and can decrease the risk of prostate enlargement–that is, benign prostate hypertrophy (BPH). Prostate massage is also a form of sexual play.
The Prostate Gland can be massaged in one of two ways, externally and internally. External and internal prostate massage have been utilized for centuries as part of holistic oriental health practices.
External Prostate Massage
The external prostate massage is the massage you should begin each day with. The internal, invasive, method is probably more effective than the external way; but this method does present some serious concerns for the majority of heterosexual men. For those men I would recommend the use of an external massage device where they just sit on the massage cradle and the bodily movements in combination with the massage cradle performs the therapeutic massage.
The whole purpose of this external prostate massage is to bring some new fresh circulation to the area and keep it fresh and healthy. This short morning external prostate massage will actually help your blood move better through your prostate all throughout your day.
Internal Prostate Massage
If you are experiencing prostate symptoms, regular prostate massages are recommended. Manual stimulation of the prostate is the most direct and often the most pleasurable form of prostate massage. Using toys designed for prostate stimulation, however, can be an effective and pleasurable way to benefit from prostate massage.
After one or two fingers are gently inserted, locate the prostate by massaging towards the perineum (the part of the pelvic floor between the scrotum and anus). You will feel a walnut-shaped gland with a distinct texture. Begin the massage with very light pressure, and communicate with your partner. If there is any tenderness or pain, reduce pressure or stop the massage. If the pressure you are using feels good, continue the massage. Internal Prostate massagers make the job easy and comfortable, minimizing the dread men usually feel for the process.
Aside from the potential health benefits, this form of stimulation can for many men, lead to a prostate orgasm. A prostate orgasm is much different than a typical male orgasm in the fact that they usually are much more intense and last longer than a typical male orgasm.
Warning : Prostate massage is NOT recommended for men with prostate cancer, as you can cause the cancer to metastasize, or for men with a prostate infection, since the infection can spread through the release of bacteria into the blood stream.
