A prostate massage refers to the act of massaging or stimulating the male prostate gland. This may be for sexual pleasure or for medical reasons.
Prostate massage may also be referred to as prostate milking. However, there is a difference in that prostate milking refers specifically to internal massage of the area on the rectum's anterior wall. A prostate massage on the other hand can refer to external massage of the perineum, which can indirectly put pressure on the prostate.
More About Prostate Massage
The prostate gland plays an essential role in male ejaculation, thus stimulation of the prostate can enhance sexual pleasure. Most often, the prostate is accessed through the anterior wall of the rectum. When the prostate is stimulated for sexual purposes, it can be referred to as the male g-spot. Climax can often be reached solely through prostate stimulation.
The prostate gland should be examined regularly in middle-aged men, as early detection of prostate cancer leads to higher survival rates.
