Looking to add a little extra excitement to your self-love routine? Why not try a prostate massage! It may sound daunting, but with a little preparation and know-how, it can be a fun and incredibly satisfying experience. Here’s everything you need to know to get started.
What is the prostate and why do some men choose to massage it?
The prostate is a Male G-Spot, and it is possible to have prostate orgasms without touching the penis. The prostate is located in front of the anal canal and below the bladder. It surrounds the urethra, which is the canal that urine (and ejaculate) pass through when leaving the body. The prostate gland secretes a fluid that nourishes and protects sperm.
Some men enjoy prostate massage because it can be pleasurable and may help to produce more intense orgasms. Prostate massage may also be used for medical purposes, such as to relieve urinary problems or prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate).
The benefits of prostate massage
There are a number of potential benefits to prostate massage, including:
- relief from prostate pain and inflammation
- prevention or relief of prostate problems, such as prostatitis, benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), and prostate cancer
- enhanced sexual pleasure and performance
- increased urinary flow
- release of built-up fluid and toxins from the prostate
While more research is needed to confirm these potential benefits, many men report feeling improved after prostate massage.
How to give yourself a prostate massage
There are a few different ways that you can give yourself a prostate massage. The most common way is to insert your finger into your anus and then press up against your prostate. You can also use a sex toy that is specifically designed for this purpose. If you want to try something different, you can stimulate your prostate with your tongue by licking or sucking on your anus.
Tips for an enjoyable experience
Before you begin, relax and empty your bladder. Try to have a bowel movement if possible. This will help reduce the risk of triggering your gag reflex during the prostate massage.
You may want to use a glove, finger cot, or lubricated condom over your finger to reduce the risk of infection. If using a glove, make sure it does not have any powder on it that could irritate the lining of your Rectum. Lubricate your finger and anus well with water-based lubricant—this will help reduce friction.
Insert your lubricated finger about 1–2 inches (2.5–5.1 cm) into your rectum, pointing toward your belly button. Apply pressure upward toward your belly button until you feel resistance or reach a sensitive area. Gently massage the sensitive area in a circular or side-to-side motion until you reach an area that feels most pleasurable Try different strokes and speeds—a prostate massage should feel pleasurable, not painful!
The risks of prostate massage
Although prostate massage can be a beneficial way to relieve certain prostate-related issues, it also comes with a few risks. One of the most common risks is perforation of the prostate, which can occur if the massage is done too forcefully. This can lead to serious medical complications, so it’s important to be gentle when performing prostate massage.
Another potential risk is infection, which can occur if bacteria from the rectum or anus enters the prostate. This is why it’s important to make sure that your hands are clean before performing the massage, and to use a condom if you’re using a finger or other object for penetration.
Finally, some men may experience temporary urinary retention after a prostate massage. This is usually not cause for concern, but if it lasts for more than a day or two, you should see a doctor to rule out any underlying medical conditions.

How do you do it?
You can do it yourself or have someone else do it for you. If you’re doing it yourself, you’ll need to insert your finger or an object into your anus and then feel for the prostate gland. It’s located about 2-3 inches inside the anus and feels like a firm, round bump. Once you’ve found it, you can massage it by rubbing in a circular motion.
If you’re having someone else do it for you, they will insert their finger or an object into your anus and then massage the prostate gland in a similar fashion.
