The prostate is a gland with approximately the size and shape of a walnut, located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Guess what? It’s only found in males. This mysterious organ secretes an alkaline fluid that forms part of semen. Besides, this organ has been known to enlarge as you keep aging. Research has proven that prostate massage is linked to a couple of beneficial factors that contribute to its overall health. One known benefit of massaging the prostate is to ease the discomfort associated with an enlarged prostate. Prostate massage is also associated with improved bladder control and sexual performance. Well, without further ado, let’s look at three techniques that you can use to massage your prostate.
- Self internal massage
This method entails using your finger to massage your prostate. If you are flexible enough to insert your index or middle finger sufficiently into your rectum, you can opt for this technique. Before the procedure, you’ll need to do the following:
- Clear your bowel,
- wash your hands thoroughly,
- remove edges on your fingernails, if any,
- relax and get some privacy.
After that, assume the crawling position, with both your hands and knees touching the floor. Next, apply a jelly on your finger then insert it gently into your anus. No need to rush as this area is extremely sensitive. Search the round shaped gland, which you probably won’t have a problem finding. Once you’ve found it, massage it gently, while applying light pressure.
- Assisted internal massage
This technique entails the use of tools particularly designed for this procedure. These are probes that have rounded tips and graced with smooth surfaces. Such devices include drumsticks, dildo and special prostate massaging equipment. Before the procedure, ensure you thoroughly wash the probe with hot water, and clean it with a non-irritant disinfectant. After that, take a crawling position with your knees and hands touching the ground. Next, apply a jelly on the probe then insert it gently about 4 inches into your rectum then apply light pressure. You will probably encounter an intensely pleasurable sensation that might lead to an erection, which is perfectly normal. Keep applying gentle pressure as you pull the object about 2 inches out of the rectum and sliding it back in. make sure to repeat the process 6 to 10 times.
- External prostate massage
With this method, there is no finger insertion into your anus. Instead, it involves massaging the perineum, which is the area between your scrotum and your anus. Many men prefer this technique to the internal prostate massage which is deemed uncomfortable. Before this procedure, ensure you wash your hands thoroughly with soap and water then clean them with a disinfectant. After that, assume the position you find comfortable and massage the perineum in gentle little motion. After all, it’s just as sensitive as the area inside the rectum. The last thing you want is creating unnecessary discomfort by rubbing the perineum carelessly.
Which is the best of the three methods?
All the three methods discussed above have almost equal satisfaction and achievement of desirable prostate health. However, if I were to choose, I would go with external prostate massage, as it’s more comfortable and more convenient. Nevertheless, I’ll conclude by advising you to go for what you think you are comfortable with.
