Yes, there is such a thing as a prostate massage – and the good thing is that it helps reduce the risk of prostate cancer! While one out of six men in the US is diagnosed with cancer of the prostate, the other five would be happy to know that they can keep the risk at bay through a massage.
The Danger of Prostate Cancer
Cancer of the prostate usually affects men in their 40’s, yet some are diagnosed at the age of 30. Medical professionals have suspected that this may be due to the intake of unhealthy foods, such as processed ones, and pollution. (More on nutrition here.) However, there could be various factors that increase one’s risk for prostate cancer, including hereditary factors. Learn more about prostate cancer, how it’s diagnosed and treated, and how to manage it with this overview.

Prostate Massage – a Pleasurable Experience
In addition to other functions, the prostate is an organ in men that happens to provide pleasurable sensations when stimulated, much like the “g-spot” for women. This makes prostate massage not only a healthy activity, but also an enjoyable one. During the massage, the prostate is stimulated both on the outside against the perineum and on the inside through one’s rectum. Pressure is applied on these areas, generally attaining pleasant results.
For men who find it awkward to be massaged by a stranger, vibrating prostate massagers have also become more popular (and easier to find) among men who prefer to do the massaging themselves or with their partner. Other benefits of prostate massage include treating erectile dysfunction. Many men have found it effective in producing more potent ejaculations—and orgasms—every time.
A prostate massage once every month is a healthy routine for those with a healthy and functional prostate. On the other hand, those with swollen prostate could make use of a prostate massage once a week to help minimize the swelling, as well as improve one’s urinary function and sexual performance.
