Uh, what’s a prostate?
The prostate is a gland about the size of a walnut, located just below the bladder. It’s where the alkaline fluid that makes up the bulk of ejaculate is made. Sperm travel from the testicles, mix in with this fluid then are expelled during ejaculation. The prostate can be stimulated through the perineum, but more directly through the anus.
Why on Earth would I want to do that?
Quite simply: for your health! Regular prostate massage and expulsion of stagnant semen reduces the risk of prostate cancer, prostatitis, some symptoms of erectile dysfunction, and keeps that stream strong. So clearly it’s worth it for the health benefits alone, but just wait ‘til you hear about the mind blowing sensations in store!
But what does it feel like?
Amazing! Like g-spot stimulation for women, prostate massage can open a whole new realm of orgasm. More intense, longer-lasting and even multiple orgasms are within your grasp! Orgasm without ejaculation and ejaculation without orgasm are both possibilities and both feel incredible!
Okay, how do I do this?
The simplest way to start exploring is with a well-lubricated finger, whether your own or a partner’s. The prostate is generally about 3 inches into the anal canal, on the front wall. Once you’ve located your prostate and ready to step up your stimulation game, there are loads of toys on the market to help you reach your orgasmic goals!
First things first: Lube! If you’re using toys, you’ll want to go with something water-based. And thick! Sliquid’s Sassy is an excellent choice; it’s designed specifically for anal use, thick and pH-balanced. Sassy won’t lead you astray! Good Clean Love’s Almost Naked is also great for anal purposes; it’s aloe-based and slightly vanilla flavoured, so really an awesome all-purpose sexual lubricant.
Below you’ll find a few toy recommendations to get you started. Be sure to check out our full selection at honeygifts.com or at either of our storefront locations.
Aneros Helix Syn: This one was originally designed as a medical device, now marketed as a pleasure toy! It doesn’t vibrate, so you’ll stimulate your prostate by tensing and releasing your pelvic floor muscles. Great for learning to focus on a different kind of pleasure.
Lelo Billy: An excellent introduction to prostate vibration. A subtle curve, strong but not too strong; the Billy’s great for beginners.
Njoy Pure Wand: You may have heard this one being touted as “the Holy Grail of G-spot toys”, but we’re here to tell you that it’s equally incredible for prostate use! The cool sensation of stainless steel, incredible firmness, two different sized ends, that delicious curve…it’s awesome.
Lelo Hugo: This guy is our hottest selling prostate toy. With Lelo’s patented Senso-Motion remote technology, you can control the vibrations without having to reach back there, or hand the reigns over to a partner for a thrilling new dynamic. With two motors, one on the perineum and one up by the prostate, the Hugo is sure to turn things up a notch (or five).
Of course, dildos can also be used for prostate stimulation… But more on that next time, when we chat about pegging!
