We're on a mission to raise awareness of prostate pleasure & health (the two go hand-in-hand). Many men and male-bodied folks don't have the facts on the prostate gland, and lots who do will avoid getting a checkup out of embarrassment and nervousness. So, read on for our guide to the prostate gland.
As a man/male-bodied person ages, so does their prostate. The older it gets, the more likely it will incur some ailment, or worst case scenario, prostate cancer.
Prostate problems can also occur in younger folks, so the more you know about the P-spot, the better.
Have you noticed any of the following? If so, it's time to book yourself in for a check-up:
Frequent need to pee
Getting up several times during the night to pee
Not being able to pee
Pain or burning sensation when peeing
Blood in urine or semen
Frequent pain or stiffness in the lower back, hips, pelvic/rectal area or upper thighs
A visit to the doctor will involve a latex glove and some lube, but shouldn't take long or be painful. The doctor will check for texture, growths or abnormalities. Early detection is the aim of the game. Prostate cancer grows quickly and spreads to other parts of the body. Once cancer has spread, treatment is much more difficult.
The good news is that awareness of prostate location, what it does, and its role in sex doesn't have to be painful or medical.
Discussing the prostate is always a good idea. Menfolk learn early to not be too open about their bits - especially anything butt-related - so it can be helpful to talk to a lover. Once someone overcomes their reluctance to talk about their ass, they'll hopefully feel more able to talk about the prostate in a health-related situation if needed.
What is the prostate?
The prostate is a walnut-sized gland that surrounds a man's urethra and plays a vital role in orgasm. The P-spot can be stimulated by firmly pressing on the perineum (the strip of skin running between the base of his penis and his bum) or inside, through the thin wall of the rectum if he's comfortable with gentle anal play.
We recommend starting with a well-lubed fingertip. Slowly tease and work the fingertip inside the butt. Gentle stroking and 'come-hither' finger moves can give powerful sensations. Some men describe the feeling as like 'orgasms in miniature.'
Toys for prostate discovery & pleasure
We have a cherry-picked section of prostate pleasure toys to explore and discover.
The most important advice about prostate toys, or any sex toys destined for the ass, is that they must be safe. The anus is a delicate flower, so anything destined for this area must be super-smooth and seamless. Anal toys must also have a wide base or handle to stop them from slipping from your fingers and disappearing inside. Trust us on this. Better safe than sorry, babes!
As well as specially designed prostate massagers, butt plugs such as Sh! Silicone Butt Plug 2 can provide sexy hands-free prostate stimulation.
We think that folks who have a healthy awareness of their prostate are better equipped to handle health problems if they arise. So stock up on lube, check out our men's sex toys and get prostate-aware by having fun!
