The Sacred Spot: Prostate Massage Benefits
This week’s blog is on a topic that affects a lot of men, but doesn’t get the coverage it deserves. Prostate massage is a practice that can be extremely beneficial for men when done with a loving & healing touch. Prostate problems in men often do not emerge until after the age of 40, but then become very common as the man ages. Prostate massage is a taboo in our society which is very unfortunate, as it can have a myriad of health benefits as well as being believed to be a very important place in tantra. Since it is difficult to bring this up with a partner, many men will seek out an experienced provider to try prostate massage.
Prostate massage can be a great way to help alleviate symptoms of prostate issues as it helps to bring blood flow to the area. Increasing circulation is beneficial to the prostate in several ways. It keeps fluids from stagnating in the prostate, and can be helpful to remove excess fluid in the gland which can cause painful inflammation. Moving the excess fluids out of the body by an orgasm through prostate massage helps the body remove a build up of secretions which can cause inflammation or infection, which can lead to prostate cancer.
Prostate massage also has a very important role in Tantra. The prostate is known as the “sacred spot” for males. In Tantra, it is believed that men carry their emotional issues in their second chakra, and since men are encouraged to hide their emotional hurts, this chakra can often become muddled and weak. When done with love and care, a gentle massaging of the prostate can break up some of the emotional energy that has been stored in this chakra, leading to healing of past emotional pains. Being able to let go learn to receive love is something that can be a great emotional gift to ourselves, and prostate massage can be one of many tantric tools to be used for this goal.
Prostate massage is also very pleasurable to most men. You may not know that 1/3 of the penis is inside the body, and stimulation of the prostate can indirectly pleasure the base of the penis, causing very intense and pleasurable feelings. If you are curious about prostate massage but too shy to ask a partner, they do have self prostate massagers that are available in most online sex toy stores such as LELO. I like the Lelo toys as they are rechargeable, high quality, and easy to clean.
Although many religious or social beliefs make prostate massage into something dirty or taboo, it doesn’t need to be either of those things. When done with a clean glove and a natural lubricant such as coconut oil, it is no more dirty than massaging any other body part and the benefits are great for male sexual health. I think that natural organic oils are best for lubricants in this sensitive area. When massaging, in and out style movements are not ideal, but instead a gentle back and forth motion or a slight tapping. Less is more when it comes to prostate stimulation. It is important to communicate with your partner during this act and listen to their body. Prostate massage should never be painful, and when done while stimulating the penis, it can cause a much more intense orgasm than usual.
It’s also important to remember that even though prostate massage has many benefits, it is not a substitute for seeing your doctor for regular checkups. If you are curious about learning more prostate massage and health, you can view the links below:
