Prostate massages aren’t something that every man explores during his lifetime. We live in a pretty judge-y society that’s quick to label people whether they like it or not. There’s still a lot of stigma when it comes to cis hetero men using their backdoors for pleasure. Therefore, it’s no wonder that men are afraid of being judged if they slip a finger or two back there. So, many men don’t even try to explore.
However, they should. There are plenty of benefits to prostate massaging and, in turn, prostate massagers. Of course, you can do the deed without any tools, but the whole process will go more smoothly if you have an ergonomic sex toy at hand that will make matters much easier.
What Are Prostate Massagers?
Prostate massagers are sex toys or sex aids that are designed in an ergonomic way. That means their design allows them to perfectly and precisely stimulate an exact part of our anatomy (the prostate).
If you think that you can use pretty much any toy to stimulate your prostate, you’re only half-right. It isn’t that hard to reach the prostate and tickle it a bit. However, doing it in a safe way requires toys that were specifically designed for anal use. So, your partner’s bullet vibrator might do the job, but it might also get lost inside your rectum and colon because it doesn’t have a steady, sturdy base to keep it in place.
That’s why it’s vital to use the right tools, like prostate massagers. These toys are specifically designed to not only reach but also stimulate and massage your prostate in all the right ways.
Different Types of Prostate Massagers
Just like any other sex toy, the mighty prostate massager comes in many shapes and sizes. That means that no matter what you’re looking for and need (or think you need), you’ll find it.
There are several different types of prostate massagers:
- regular prostate toys
- vibrating prostate massagers
- hands-free prostate massagers
The difference between them is clear; regular prostate toys are an upgrade from a simple butt plug. That means they will physically stimulate your prostate by pressing into it. Vibrating prostate massagers take things a bit further. They offer several patterns and strengths of vibration that will make stimulation not only easier but also more powerful.
Finally, hands-free massagers offer you the chance to play with other people. Although you can use them for solo play, of course, the fact they come with a remote controller opens some new avenues of play with your partner.
What Are the Benefits of Prostate Massagers?
Although one benefit is more than clear (orgasms), prostate massagers actually have a lot more to offer. So, let’s take a look at all the blessings that these handy backdoor toys can bring you.
It might seem obvious, but the most significant benefit of prostate massagers is prostate massage. This process clears the prostate ducts from the fluid that can prove beneficial to you in a multitude of ways.
Regular prostate massaging can potentially reduce the risk of prostate cancer and help deal with some erectile problems. It can also be extremely beneficial to people who have prostatitis (the inflammation of the prostate gland).
And, believe it or not, it can help with your urine flow. Because prostate massaging relaxes and drains the prostate, it relieves the pressure the gland makes on the urethra. Thus, it’s much easier to have a steady flow while peeing. What’s more, prostate massaging can also help reduce nighttime urination.
Of course, aside from health benefits, there’s also the sexual component to it.
If you’re thinking to yourself, “Well, isn’t prostate milking the same as prostate massaging?” we understand your confusion. Prostate massages are usually something your doctor might recommend. Prostate milking, on the other hand, is a term that refers to prostate massages that are done with the goal of achieving sexual pleasure.
Again, it might seem obvious, but orgasms are one of the major benefits of using prostate massagers. The prostate is a small gland that’s located in the anus. You can find it between the rectum and the base of your penis. This small, walnut-sized gland produces the fluid that houses the sperm.
The prostate has thousands of nerve endings in it which is why stimulating it feels so good. Depending on your sensitivity, stimulating the prostate can lead to a more powerful and intense orgasm than you’d be able to achieve with simple penile stimulation. Don’t be surprised if your orgasm is also more productive as well. Because the prostate produces the seminal fluid, massaging it to completion usually leads to the release of that fluid. That might make your orgasm more productive than before.
Now, every man is different. Our anatomies and sensitivity levels differ. Still, some men can achieve dry orgasms as well as orgasms without direct penile stimulation simply by stimulating the prostate. That, as mentioned, depends on how sensitive you are.
However, it is something to strive for. Dry orgasms are a dream of many men because they provide all the pleasure with none of the cleanups.
Both for Solo and Partnered Play
The best thing about prostate massagers is that, just like many other sex toys, you can use them while flying solo or with a partner. Although prostate massagers aren’t as interactive as some other sex toys (such as couple’s toys), they can be fun for both parties.
First of all, prostate massagers are amazing tools for experimentation. If you’ve never poked around your backdoor, you might not be inclined to think so. However, using a prostate massager to experiment with your partner can be a thrilling experience. What’s more, it might also be easier for you than doing it solo. Your partner will probably have a better angle than you would, and they can guide the toy in more easily.
Not to mention, sharing such an experience with a partner will definitely make you feel more connected. By giving your partner access to your rear, you’re showing them you have complete trust in them. What’s more, you’re putting your pleasure in their hands. That’s a thrilling situation for both of you!
Overall, prostate massagers fall into the “daring but worth it” category of sex toys. They offer some amazing physical and sexual health benefits. What’s more, they are definitely going to provide you with an excellent time in bed! Both you and your partner will enjoy a good prostate massager (in different ways).
