Prostate massage is a healthy and pleasurable activity that can be enjoyed as part of your intimate life. Quite simply, prostate massage stimulates the prostate with a finger or massage tool with the intention of relaxation and/or pleasure. Prostate massage is an intimate skill that can be learned and shared by lovers in the privacy of their own home .
The prostate is a gland, located just below the bladder and sheathed in the musculature of the pelvic floor, the same muscles that contract during orgasm and ejaculation. The urethra runs from the bladder, directly through the prostate gland and out through the penis. The prostate gland plays a central role in the male sexual system. Within the gland, tiny ducts called acini produce prostatic fluid. This fluid mixes with sperm and fluid from the seminal vesicles to become the male ejaculate. Prostate health is essential for lifelong sexual pleasure and function.
Regular ejaculations keep the prostate healthy by stimulating production of fresh prostatic fluid and bringing fresh blood to the area. Fresh blood flow brings the nutrients and oxygen cells needed to remain healthy and replicate normally. White blood cells are immune-system powerhouses, fighting infections at the cellular level. The prostate is more likely to become infected or cancerous when blood flow is constricted from muscular tension and lack of stimulation.
Prostate massage manually stimulates the prostate gland, flushing fluid from the gland and encouraging blood flow to the entire pelvis. This can be a highly stimulating or profoundly relaxing experience. As an added bonus, releasing chronic constriction in the pelvis can enhance erections by allowing more blood flow into the penis during arousal. Some men notice dramatic changes in their erectile function after exploring prostate massage.
Prostate massage is only one part of a healthy lifestyle. You may be hearing a lot about things like lycopene and phytoestrogens- plant compounds that are currently a hot topic in medical research. Studies are taking a close look at the exact actions and potential of food-based compounds and the early findings are very promising. Prostate health is supported by those foods with anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer and hormone balancing properties. A healthy diet that includes fresh fruits and vegetables can go a long way towards supporting lifelong prostate health.
