What is the prostate gland and where is it located?
The prostate gland is a walnut sized area reached via the male anus which swells slightly and provides a very pleasurable feeling when it is massaged and stroked. It can be reached easily by inserting a well lubricated finger an inch or so up the anus, and towards the front of the body, as the prostate gland is located at the base of the urinary bladder.
What is the prostate gland for?
The main function of the prostate gland is to help control urination and the need to urinate, as it presses directly against the part of the urethra it surrounds. Urine travels down the urethra on its way out of the body. Another important function of the prostate gland is to produce some of the minerals and sugar which make up semen, the fluid which carries the sperm out of the penis and into the vagina in order to reproduce.
What is an enlarged prostate gland condition?
Normally, the prostate is about the size of a walnut. However, as men age, the gland usually grows larger. This condition is called benign prostatic hypertrophy (BPH). An important point worth mentioning is that enlarged prostate gland conditions are not associated with prostate cancer, although they can often cause similar symptoms. These symptoms include the slowing of the urinary stream, urinating more frequently particularly at night (called nocturia). These symptoms cause much distress and confusion for men as to exactly what condition they have, as frequent urination is even a symptom of diabetes!
Milking the prostate gland
Prostate milking is also known as prostate massage. It is a simple procedure that you or your partner can do yourselves, or alternatively your doctor can do it for you. Many men nowadays use prostate massagers such as those produced by Nexus, which allow you to easily reach and stimulate the prostate area and prostate gland. See below for astep by step instructions for milking the prostate gland.
Although now you know where the prostate gland is located, and how best to stimulate it, there is no substitute for a ‘walkthrough’ from a website in the know. Firstly, empty your bowels or urinate to ensure there are no disturbances whilst you are investigating your prostate gland. Also, make sure your finger nails are trimmed and cut as the prostate tissue and surrounding area is sensitive and delicate.
Make sure you wash your body and hands thoroughly, and if possible use a sterile latex glove for extra protection
Apply some water based lubricant to your fingers or prostate massager.
Insert your finger or toy carefully into the anus. Slide your fingers upward and towards the front of your body.
You will find the prostate gland, a small, bulbous spot about the size of a large walnut. Gently massage the area with a light ‘come hither’ motion, and the area will swell slightly as it is stimulated. Do not press too hard on this area, and try not to touch it with your fingernails.
Some people feel the urge to use the bathroom. This is because the prostate gland actually presses on the bladder and regulates the need to urinate. Consequently, this is not a real need. Put these thoughts to the back of your mind and continue.
Milking the prostate gland for some time will result in an orgasmic feeling. However, it is not always accompanied by ejaculation. As with all types of sexual stimulation, everyone behaves and enjoys different things, so take the time to play around and experiment.
What are the benefits of prostate gland massage?
There are many benefits of massaging the prostate gland. Milking the prostate fights potential problems in later life such as prostatitis, an enlarged prostate gland, and prostate cancer. This is without taking into consideration the pleasurable results of a prostate gland massage.
