The prostate is a male reproductive organ. It’s located just below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Shaped like a walnut, it surrounds the urethra, near the connection between the urethra and bladder. The prostate plays an important role in male fertility because it produces prostatic fluid, which is one of the main components of semen. During ejaculation, sperm travels through the ejaculatory ducts and mixes with fluid secreted by the seminal vesicles, prostate and bulbourethral glands, and this forms semen. Without any of these components, semen will not function as efficiently. And so, a healthy prostate gland is integral to male fertility and reproduction.
Like any other part of the body, the prostate is susceptible to illnesses and malfunctions. Inflammation and prostatitis are two of the most common conditions. Physicians often prescribe or recommend draining the prostate of its blocked fluids. This is also known as prostate massage. It aims to wring out and milk the prostate which will relieve the painful symptoms of an inflamed prostate.
Prostatitis is a urinary tract condition that can affect man of all ages. According to the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases, it causes around two million visits to medical professionals.
Some of the symptoms of prostatitis are:
- Frequently needing to urinate
- Painful, weak flow or feeling ‘incomplete’ after urination
- Blood in urine
- Erectile dysfunction
- Painful ejaculation
- Muscle aches and pains (particularly in the back)
- Pain in the area between anus and scrotum
What causes prostate problems?
The prostate gland can become inflamed or infected for a variety of reasons – from bacterial to nonbacterial organisms and an immune system response to nerve damage. The inflammation and symptoms can last for a short period of time or the condition can be a chronic issue.
Antibiotics and muscle relaxants are often prescribed and while they may be effective for most patients, some people may find their symptoms to be more persistent.
What is a prostate massage?
A prostate massage is a gentle stimulation of the gland, intended to release the blocked ducts, relieve the pressure and pain. The masseuse will wear a lubricated glove and gently insert a finger into the rectum and press the sides of the prostate. They will softly stroke, rub and massage the prostate. This will encourage the gland to release its fluids. Initially, the client will feel uncomfortable and a deep pressure of liquid building up inside. But this is normal – this is exactly what’s supposed to happen. Deep, controlled breathing is key here. Once they relax, it will start to feel more pleasurable.
Prostate stimulation will result in fluid release and an extremely pleasurable orgasm. This combination will leave clients in a state of relaxed bliss and relief from the pain. Regular prostate massage sessions will keep the prostate healthy, working efficiently and reduce the risk of fluid blockage.
