Prostate Massage: Health Benefits You Might Not Know About
If you buy something through this post, Autoblow.com may be paid a commission. All opinions expressed are those of our resident sexpert.

There’s been some buzz in mainstream media lately about the many advantages of prostate massage, which is sort of shocking considering the fact that just under a hundred years ago we were creating products to help men stop their erections and basically deny the fundamentals of their sexuality altogether. Fast-forward a century or so and now we’re developing devices and techniques that help us reach the deepest, darkest nooks and crannies of our flesh. It’s no longer considered indecent or taboo to want to pleasure yourself or a partner, and more people incorporate sex toys into their love lives than ever before in the history of mankind. The interesting part about it all is that it’s not always done for the purposes of indulgence alone. Some people, believe it or not, practice prostate milking just for the health benefits associated with it.

Whatever your reason, just know that massaging the p-spot is not for the faint of heart. However, doing it does not change your sexual orientation nor does it compromise your moral values. Let’s get that out of the way right now. Truth be told, prostate milking delivers such incredible waves of involuntary stimulation from the top of your scalp down to the tips of your toes that the subsequent whole-body experience can promote much more intense orgasms, which in turn may prolong your recovery time between sessions and make it difficult to walk without your knees buckling. Honestly, that’s pretty much the only negative thing about p-spot milking and it’s not even that bad. With all things considered, anyone can see why most doctors recommend regular prostate massages to all their male patients.

According to research, in fact, there are numerous health benefits to know about and consider, especially if you’re a sexually active man over the age of 25. Self-guided studies will only render so much information, plus data is spread out all over the place making it difficult for the average person to find what they’re looking for and actually trust what they’re reading. In an effort to remedy that, I’ve collected all the most important info for you, combined it with expert techniques and then sprinkled on some simple safety tips for good measure. Don’t ever say I didn’t care.

What Is the Prostate?

The prostate is a relatively simple thing to understand but modern science has yet to put their finger on the true nature of this gland. Located deep inside the rectum, the prostate (or p-spot) is globally recognized as an essential part of optimal male health regardless of his age, sexual orientation, pleasure preferences or comfort level. This walnut-sized thingamajig regulates the production and extraction of the fluids which carry sperm from the testicles to the frenulum of the penis. That fluid is essential in terms of protecting semen as it comes rushing out, so the body naturally produces a lot of it. However, excessive fluid retention can be extremely detrimental to a man’s health which is why prostate milking is such a bid deal. It is that same vital fluid surplus that gets drained off when the gland gets properly massaged.

Interestingly, the value of an adequate p-spot milking session is so well-known and well-respected in the medical community that most doctors and medical practitioners offer routine prostate massages right in their offices like clockwork. Using a variation of finger probes and specialized penetration tools, the delicate gland is surgically stimulated until its built-up fluids are effectively extracted, collected and discarded in a sterile, non-judgmental way. Knowing the gland is a complex structure with numerous sacs that notoriously attract fecal bacteria, physicians understand how neglected prostates can become inflamed and stop working properly over time. Their willingness to provide inpatient glandular care is therefore important, although it may be too expensive for some to afford. Fortunately, the sex toy industry has started providing countless solutions made exclusively for the purpose of safe, inexpensive prostate massaging.

Not a big fan of shopping for and/or buying butt play sex toys? Neither are a vast portion of the millions who spend their hard-earned money on them every day. The fact of the matter, however, is much simpler than that: Prostate Enlargement, or BPH, naturally occurs in a man’s body as he gets older. Most of the time, he has no idea what’s happening inside his body. Therefore, you have to make a choice:

  • Pay a doctor big bucks to stimulate your p-spot in a cold, sterile room once a month or so (if not more).
  • Use an affordable prostate massager (or two) at your leisure and maintain optimal health without the entire neighborhood knowing about it.
  • Do nothing and watch as your body (and your sex life) deteriorate right before your eyes.

The choice is yours, my friends. Nobody is forcing you to do anything but here’s a fact that’s not often talked about around the dinner table: The prostate gland is located in different places for every man, plus it varies widely in size and sensitivity depending on a handful of unique factors (some of which are purely psychological). With that said, all efforts to successfully massage the p-spot need to be done in a gentle, respectable and fully customized way - meaning a doctor might not be able to pull it off as well as an open-minded partner.

What Does a P-Spot Massage Entail?

Let me just make this short and sweet: A good prostate massage can entail pretty much anything you desire as long as its safe, pleasurable, effective and agreed upon ahead of time. In other words, this shouldn’t cause you to do the walk of shame if you take my advice. I know they say that good sex makes it hard to maintain eye contact in the morning but that’s simply not the case. More often than not, proper p-spot milking sessions lead to a greater bond between partners and a more solid familiarity with one’s sexual self. If that makes you feel ashamed or uncomfortable for any reason, you’ve got bigger problems on your hands than some backed up glandular fluids. You’re dead inside, sir.

Fortunately, there are no special skills or equipment needed to experience a well-rounded massage to the internal butthole button. Usually, a successful milking involves little more than a gentle, tailored penetration into the anal canal until the targeted gland is reached. Vibrating, sonic and/or electrostimulation devices are then used to stimulate the prostate until it releases its juices, thereby creating an instantaneous pulse of pleasure that radiates throughout the entire body. This effect is felt as a significantly intensified orgasm, providing a double whammy of benefits and we haven’t even discussed the part about health yet. Moral of the story: Prostate massaging is a completely subjective exercise but its advantages are objective in a sense that they effect every man the same.

Perhaps best of all is the fact that a good milking can be done in numerous ways, even without a partner or a trained medical professional’s help. And thank God for that, because having an incredible orgasm in your friendly doctor’s office is awkward as hell. Today’s society is so accepting and encouraging of this practice, in fact, that an entire industry has been created to support it. More people massage their prostates than ever before in recorded history; they do it for a wide variety of reasons and their methods are just as diverse and unique as they are. Oh, what a time to be alive.

The Who and Why

Contrary to popular belief, anal stimulation is favored by men from all walks of life and for countless different reasons – many of which have little to do with his health and wellbeing. Guys have been doing it since way back in the day, long before prescription pharmaceuticals were available as a magic pill for every intimacy ill. In some reported cases, prostate massage was used as a natural cure for certain male-related health conditions. In other cases, it was used strictly as a safe and satisfying way to enhance a man’s sexual experience. For many, it’s an organic solution to both. Regardless of the motives, however, it’s clear that the p-spot stimulation fans aren’t going anywhere anytime soon. 

But as history marches on and medical science creates questionable cure-alls for every illness in the book, powerful antibiotics have been swiftly created to help combat the effects of excessive glandular fluid retention. This has only made the fans grow in number because the results of such measures haven’t always been pretty. Patients exposed to large amounts of antibiotics can develop a resistance to medicine over time, making it more difficult for them to get over simple sicknesses and heal after being slightly wounded. Because of that, prostate milking is favored among men and couples who are concerned about their reproductive health but don’t want to expose their bodies to potentially dangerous pharmaceuticals in pursuit of it.

Many times, health and sexuality go hand-in-hand. These days, however, fewer and fewer doctors are offering in-office prostate massages simply because of the professional inconvenience of it having a direct correlation with personal pleasure. Those that do offer the service do so at a premium – one that vastly outweighs the cost of simply buying one from a merchandiser and using it in the privacy of your own home. What’s more is that the procedure isn’t usually covered by insurance. Therefore, those looking for more accessible ass play options usually skip the office visit altogether and experiment with different sensations on their own using a specialized prostate massaging device that they acquired from an adult entertainment store. You gotta go what you gotta do, folks.

Being someone who understands the value of a good prostate milking session means you’re a full-fledged grownup and can sit at the big kid’s table when we’re talking about sex. It means you’re one step closer to saving tons of money on your health and happiness, all while living your best life in the meantime. It also means you won’t get ripped off (as easily) when you step into one of those sex shops to buy a male massager, and it tells of a much brighter future where you benefit from the laundry list of advantages I’m about to describe. But first, let’s talk about the most common ways to get it done so you can intelligently pick out your favorite.

The 3 Main Methods of Milking the P-Spot

There’s more than one way to skin a cat, at least that’s what my grandfather used to say. I’m not sure how many cats he skinned in his day but I can tell you one thing, he sure as hell knew how to work out a problem in a safe, creative and effective manner. So since an overstuffed prostate gland and a poor sex life are both major problems than men face today, I feel like his rather inhumane advice is as true as it is grotesque. To put it simply, you can massage the prostate using numerous different methods and still get the same results. It’s like insanity of the highest and most beneficial order. Now that’s the kind of butt stuff I can get behind (pun intended).

Mankind has been playing this game of thrones for quite some time now, having come up with only a handful of ways to do it safely, discreetly and with maximum benefit. Based on all accounts, there are at least three techniques that a modern-day man has at his disposal. Each one has unique pros and cons to carefully consider but they’re all effective in their own regard and none of them are discouraged by doctors except for in extremely rare circumstances. Decisions, decisions:

  1. Self-Inflicted Intensity
    One of the best ways to experience the true magic of a good p-spot stimulation session is to host it yourself, sans a partner, doctor or otherwise. Personalized massages are easier than ever thanks to the developments of the sex toy industry, with hundreds of different options featuring varied shapes, sizes and performance features. Go for something curved, straight, rigid or flexible – the choice is yours. The point here is not to get fancy or try to impress anyone with your knowledge of kink and fetish; it’s all about getting the most bang for your buck without having to apologize to someone for what you need.
  2. Hands-Free Healthiness
    Being healthy and enjoying a well-rounded sex life has never been more convenient. Those same sex toys and prostate massaging devices you use when you’re all alone can be brought into the bedroom for some amazing couple’s play as well. Having a partner pleasure your pooper is extremely sensational, mostly because you don’t always know what’s coming (except for yourself, of course). Hands-free stimulation also allows for deeper, more substantial penetration while promoting greater intimacy and encouraging more honest forms of self-expression. In other words, feeling this type of intensity involuntarily more or less quadruples the effectiveness of the exercise. Time to take one for the team, boys.
  3. Doctor’s Direct Order
    You could always say “fuck it” and wait until there’s a major problem with your health before you start milking your man-glands. After all, some men would rather die than stick anything up their ass. However, neglecting to baby your prostate can have dire consequences that have nothing to do with your longevity in the third dimension. Most of the time, the ugliest results of an unmassaged p-spot involve significant reductions to a man’s sexual performance and ability to take a satisfying piss. I don’t know about you, but both of those scenarios sound worse than death. Add in the fact that some doctors actually prescribe in-office prostate milking or use gland draining antibiotics and you’ve got a very good reason to go ahead and take care of it yourself. It’s either that or some extremely up close and personal time with your family doc. Choose wisely, bros. You don’t even get taken out to dinner first.

Responsible and open-minded men will put up with this kind of crap because they understand the importance of maintaining the integrity of their engines. After a while, it stops feeling like embarrassing bullshit and begins resembling a form of self-pampering – a delicate yet manly art form that has been lost to time and culture. It’s one thing to know that a lot of men do it, that doctors are willing to help out with it, and that there are numerous ways of getting it done. It’s another thing to educate yourself on the various pros and cons associated with it because, let’s be honest, butt play isn’t for everybody and we all know it.

Prostate Milking Pros and Cons

Regardless of the stigmas and stereotypes associated with prostate massaging and butt play in general, don’t let anyone discourage you from experiencing something amazing, especially if it’s extremely good for your health and beneficial to your intimate relationships. P-spot milking may not be for everyone in a sense that it requires security in one’s own sexuality but it’s certainly good for every man’s overall health and it presents very few negative side effects. Don’t we wish we could say the same for those pharmaceuticals and embarrassing doctor’s visits? Stop taking the path less traveled so much and join the millions of men who regularly reach inside themselves to ring out the poison. There’s really no use crying over spilled milk anymore.

THE BENEFITS

Proper prostate milking can be a lot of fun. It’s kinky and pleasurable even when you do it all alone. However, besides all its recreational purposes, there are a few medical advantages that you need to know about before carrying on. Why is this stuff so important? Because it helps you determine how often you want to massage your prostate, plus it helps you school others when they try to make you feel bad for being healthier than they are. Here are the kinds of things you’ll experience while they’re still sitting around in the dark:

  • Optimized Blood Circulation
    Countless studies have demonstrated how frequent stimulation of the prostate, or male g-spot, can optimize blood flow throughout the entire body. Furthermore, that increase in circulation almost always leads to the delivery of more oxygen to red and white blood cells (which carry nutrients to important parts of the male anatomy, by the way). Both side effects result in things like improved cardiovascular health, boosted erections and enhanced orgasms – all without the first dose of medication.
  • Improved Urinary Tract Function
    Did you know that a man’s ability to satisfactorily digest food, pass bowel movements and urinate are related to the condition of his prostate gland? If the gland is swollen it pinches off the internal pathways for waste. It then becomes extremely difficult for a guy to empty his tanks, thereby causing a backup of epic proportions and putting his health at severe risk of deterioration. Prostate massage lessens that burden and makes like a lot more comfortable and convenient as a result.
  • Reduced Inflammation in the Body
    After a hard day’s work it can be tough to settle down and relax, especially when your muscles are sore and your joints are swollen. Injuries can make matters even worse and existing conditions become unmanageable sometimes. No matter what you’re facing in terms of bodily inflammation, a deep prostate massage can do more for your body than a shiatsu and an ibuprofen ever could. While those remedies only mask the problem, p-spot milking detoxes the system permanently and leaves you ready to fight another day.
  • Decreased Joint Pain and Stiffness
    When your body isn’t inflamed and your systems are naturally flushed on a regular basis, you begin to feel a lot better overall – more limber, more energetic, even comfortable in places and/or positions that were usually hard for you to achieve or maintain. Prostate milking is by no means a fix-it-all miracle but it has been proven to significantly reduce various pains in the body, most notably those associated with inflammation and injury.
  • Enhanced Bladder Control
    Working out the rectal muscles is actually a good thing, so don’t fall for the hype about anal penetration making your asshole sound like a tugboat. The truth is that internal prostate massaging can tighten the pelvic floor and help with better bladder control. This significant reduction in urinary incontinence has made the practice popular among men of all ages, even those who have given up on having a sex life completely.
  • Intensified Orgasms
    Everyone knows that butt play feels amazing, but prostate massages are the reason for that and so many people don’t even realize it. The pleasurable sensations that occur during anal penetration are produced by a combination of nerve endings and internal glands being stimulated simultaneously. It is, therefore, no stretch of the imagination to understand how the mere practice of p-spot milking can lead to more intensified climaxes and boosted libidos for anyone who tries it (and I’m talking about people who do it strictly for medical reasons too).

NOTE: Experiencing frequent orgasms carries with it a few of its own unique benefits to your health, including improved sleep habits, better digestion, balanced hormones, stress and anxiety reductions, boosted immunities, prolonged sexual stamina, and improved intimacy in relationships.

  • Boosted Testosterone Levels
    The debate is over. It has been proven that skillful stimulation of the p-spot leads to more testosterone production, which thereby improves a man’s health, wealth and happiness by a measurable margin. What’s more is that the increased testosterone in your bloodstream can help shrink swollen prostate glands and reduce your risk of certain diseases, plus it makes you more virile in bed (which, let’s face it, you could definitely use).

Butt play leading to better health and cures for cancer sounding too good to be true? That’s what I thought as well, but then I did some homework and realized that men’s health experts from all over the world were singing the praises of prostate milking because of its ability to stomp out pesky illnesses. As it turns out, the practice has been linked to a significant reduction in glandular cancers thanks to the lymph node cleaning processes that accompany a good milking. According to a 2017 estimate from the American Cancer Society, 1/7th of the U.S. male population will succumb to prostate cancer every year. It’s also the third leading cause of death in men. If you ask me, those numbers are worth taking a second look at the benefits of prostate massaging.

NOTE: A proper diet is highly recommended as a healthy, natural accompaniment to routine p-spot milking. Consult with your doctor for more information on how, when, why and/or if you should participate or to find out more about ways to structure a healthier diet.

THE DRAWBACKS

It probably won’t be too hard to convince some men of this, but there are a few minor drawbacks associated with prostate milking. However, most of those disadvantages can be mitigated with the proper approach as well as use of the right equipment. Either way, it’s important that you get the full story before attempting to massage your p-spot (or that of a partner). Here’s the dark side of it all for your careful consideration:

  • You’re Gonna Feel a Little Pressure
    As always when you insert something into your body, there’s going to be some pressure felt at the contact point. This is a perfectly normal sensation, but it can be a rather painful pill for some men to swallow. It’s important to relax your sphincter muscles as much as you can and use plenty of lube on all insertable objects before penetration your body with them. More on that in a minute when we cover the essential safety tips.
  • You Might Have to Work for It
    Do yourself a favor. Don’t be one of those guys who expects to master the art of milking the prostate without any practice or preparation. It’s just not that easy, although the process is extremely simplified and can be streamlined using ergonomic sex toys. Either way, get in the mindset that things don’t always go as planned. Not all men ejaculate every single time their sweet spot is stimulated. It’s perfectly fine to give yourself a break on this one, big guy.
  • WARNING: Extreme Caution Is Advised
    The walls of the average man’s rectum are extremely thin, easily punctured and irreparably damaged if poked too hard or thrusted too aggressively. Things like anal fissures and hemorrhoids are very common among those who don’t practice or who move at excessive speeds during penetration. Infections and other health problems can develop as a result. So, use caution at all times, please. You’re not impressing anybody by how deep or wide you can go. We get it. You’re a macho man.
  • Exposure to Fecal Bacteria Is a Real Concern
    Whether you like it or not, and regardless of whether you do this by yourself or a with a willing partner, you’re going to come in contact with fecal bacteria. The bad part is that it doesn’t always look and/or smell like shit. The stuff can be completely invisible and still fuck up a perfectly good time if its not managed correctly. Either learn how to responsibly get down like James Brown in Funky Town or learn the prostate play to the pros.
  • Not All Men Can Get Down Like That
    Unfortunately, there’s an entire group of men who can’t engage in p-spot massage even if they wanted to. They’re the ones suffering from prostatitis, a relatively common condition that results in painful, life-altering side effects during ejaculation and/or urination. The saddest part is that prostatitis can sometimes be prevented with frequent milking sessions and is often treated by doing the same thing. It’s a little bit like a catch-22; ashamed if you do it, damn near dead if you don’t.

There may be some pretty significant pros and cons to think about here but one thing has (hopefully) been made abundantly clear: You’ll enjoy more benefits than drawbacks when joining the prostate play brigade and even doctors say it’s good for your health. The tricky part is doing it safely so you can get as much pleasure out of it as humanly possible while also taking advantage of its natural powers. After all, you’re not about to go fuck yourself for nothing and love sometimes hurts when you do it right. Your mother would be so proud right now.

Prostate Play Safety and Pleasure Tips

Keep in mind there’s a thin line between making your mother proud and forcing her to blush whenever your name is mentioned. Trips to the emergency room for sex-related injuries are a great way to get that ball rolling, so try to avoid them at all costs. Remember that there are countless devices out here made exclusively for prostate massaging purposes, meaning you don’t have to rely on second-rate techniques or potentially dangerous methods to get your kicks anymore. Being safe is and always will be the best way to get satisfied (both erotically and medically). Don’t go about this like a rookie lest you set mankind back by about a hundred years. It’s not rocket science, guys.

Instead of flunking out, why not learn some butt play tips and etiquette so you don’t look and feel like an asshole? Here’s how you can get the most out of your prostate milking endeavors without having to call the doctor (or your mother) for help:

  • Empty your bowels and bladder before beginning because you don’t want to pass gas or render a BM in middle of your orgasm.
  • Use an anal douching device prior to play so you can get a thorough cleanse of the rectum and experience more relaxation during penetration.
  • Wash your hands and clean off any sex toys being used to limit or eliminate the transmission of environmental debris and latent bacteria.
  • Trim and clean beneath your fingernails before using any hands-on techniques to stimulate the prostate.
  • Cleanse the area around the anal opening before touching it with a finger and/or sex toy to prevent cross-contamination of already sterilized objects.
  • Learn ahead of time where your prostate gland is located so you don’t have to experiment as dangerously with penetrative sex toys.
  • Allow at least 5 to 10 minutes for your body to relax around the penetrated object and reveal your precious p-spot, as it may be hiding under tense muscles or weird body positions.
  • Expect to feel a sensation similar to having to use the restroom (AKA: take a dump) because the sphincter muscle is being directed stimulated during insertion.
  • To find the gland, look for a small, round ball-shaped object inside your anus that’s about the same size as a ripe walnut.
  • Try not to press on the prostate too hard to squeeze all the liquid out because simple, concentrated vibrations can render the same results without potential injury.

It’s not always easy being sleazy. But fortunately for you, the impressive list of health benefits associated with a good prostate massage is evidence enough to support its legitimacy even when its for pleasure alone. Just for good measure, here are some simple tips and tricks to help make the experience a little more enjoyable (now that you’ve got the safety part down pat, that is):

  • Only insert objects and/or pleasure devices that are made for anal stimulation or sexual penetration.
  • Try to use sex toys that are ergonomically designed for a man’s body, with specialized curves, undulations and textures to support adequate p-spot milking.
  • Experiment with different prostate massage methods until you find the right one – internal penetration, external stimulation of the perineum, vibrations, sonic waves, electrostimulation, etc.
  • Use electrostimulation, or e-stim, as an alternative to being continually penetrated by a sex toy or partner.
  • Employ safety harnesses, strap-ons and mounts as often as possible to further customize the depth of penetration and speed of thrusting (if any), usually hands-free.
  • Talk openly and honestly with your lover about expectations, fears and desires prior to inserting anything into the anus.
  • Wear a cock ring at the same time as being stimulated anally to further increase the level of pleasure and/or the longevity of the performance you experience.
  • Utilize the wonderful world of feature-dense lubricants to your advantage so you can tickle and tease as many nerve endings in your body as possible.
  • Remember to move around into different positions, especially if you’re having trouble finding your prostate gland.
  • Start with something small when you’re new to p-spot milking but make sure its carefully curved to accurately pinpoint the most common areas of the anal canal.
  • Slather on more than enough skin-safe lube and make sure it’s also compatible with the sex toy materials you’re currently using.
  • Attempt to wear something like a butt plug or set of anal beads for several minutes without vibrations of thrusting to determine your ideal configuration.
  • Don’t be afraid to stop if something hurts or feels too uncomfortable to bear because nobody is judging you for having unique tastes.

Guys, while you’re busy perfecting your approach to prostate massages and learning how to read cues from your own body, try to keep in mind that women can experience anal orgasms as well. Don’t count them out just because their prostate glands aren’t as anatomically disruptive as a man’s. You’ll find that there are plenty of surprising benefits to go around when it comes to p-spot and/or g-spot stimulation as a couple. In fact, participating in this ritual as a dynamic duo has additional advantages to your health and wellbeing that weren’t even discussed here.

To make the most of your masseuse skills, practice as often as you can (without becoming an addict) and talk to a healthcare professional for more information on how to properly execute a good milking without interfering with other treatments. Remember that the first time is always the scariest but nothing causes more fear in a man that the prospect of losing functionality in his dick or dying from an avoidable form of cancer. You got this, bruh.

Final Considerations

It has been proven time and time again that prostate milking, otherwise known as p-spot massaging, benefits a person’s health in numerous measurable ways. It helps with cardiovascular function and circulation, aids in urinary tract function, boosts sensations during sex and/or masturbation, helps regulate bowel movements, slows or stops urinal incontinence and limits your exposure to potentially harmful pharmaceuticals, antibiotics, surgeries and medical conditions. Interestingly, experts haven’t even tapped into the full potential of the prostate gland, meaning there are probably more benefits that we don’t even know about yet. It will be fascinating to see what we discover as science advances and society continues to remove the stigma around anal stimulation.

On the bright side, all of this butt stuff feels like heaven on Earth for most men when they do it right, plus it’s a lot cheaper than paying for a doctor’s office visit and it can be added in as part of an otherwise amazing sex life without disrupting the flow of traffic or redefining gender roles. It is, by all accounts, one of the wisest things any sexually active man can do for himself as he ages. So, even if you’re not the kind of guy who likes doing it for pleasure alone, at least try p-spot milking for the people who care about you the most. “When I think about you, I touch myself.” Now that’s health at its finest.
