How the Prostate Works
This organ performs an apparently minor function, secreting the fluid that makes up about a third of the volume of male ejaculate. This substance helps sperm move more effectively in the vaginal canal and can contribute greatly to male fertility. The prostate is also made up of some smooth muscle tissue that assists with expelling semen effectively.
This gland contains sensitive nerve tissue that can help stimulate ejaculation in men who normally have trouble with sex. It has also been reported to improve sexual satisfaction, even in men who don't have any dysfunctions. Because of this, prostate massage is a healthy option practiced by many couples.
Sexual Health and the Prostate
The prostate gland works correctly only when it is stimulated by the proper mix of hormones. The main hormone responsible for good prostate function is testosterone, which is produced primarily by the testicles, though some minor hormones produced by the adrenal gland also affect this organ. When a man is suffering from very low or high testosterone levels, he may also have problems with prostate health.
Uneven hormone levels increase the risk of getting prostate cancer, especially in older men. Prostate cancer symptoms to be concerned about include difficulty urinating, blood in urine or semen, swelling and discomfort in the pelvis and swollen legs. Some men also suffer from bone pain as a prostate cancer symptom.
Many men develop an enlarged prostate, which is called benign prostatic hyperplasia, after the age of 30. This problem could make it hard to urinate comfortably and can also affect sexual health. Some men with this problem have trouble maintaining an erection. In some cases, the prostate can become clogged or blocked. This may be due to enlargement or because of an infection. In both cases, it causes prostatic fluid to build up inside the organ. This can be very uncomfortable. It can also lead to more serious health problems later on.
Benefits of Prostate Induced Ejaculation
Stimulating the prostate through massage can help prevent or treat all these prostate health problems. For instance, frequent ejaculation from prostate massage or other techniques can help reduce the risk of prostate cancer. Men who ejaculate at least 21 times per month in their 40s have about a 1/3 lower chance of suffering from the symptoms of prostate cancer. At age 50, the protective effect of regular ejaculation goes up to about 50 percent. While these events don't have to involve prostate induced ejaculation, many men find this type of stimulation to be more effective than ordinary sexual activity.
Massage can also help men who suffer from an enlarged prostate by reducing the discomfort. This is especially true for people who have a mild bacterial infection or an enlargement that has caused the gland to become clogged. By inducing ejaculation through prostate massage, these men can remove built-up fluid, relive pressure, and even help the body overcome the bacteria. Massage used to be the standard treatment for prostatitis before the advent of antibiotics and it's still used in many countries today.
