Sometime back, practicing leave alone mentioning the term prostate massage was viewed as taboo by many people. In fact, the only people who were expected to talk about the activity were medics or doctors who were doing it as part of offering treatment. However, this perception is slowly changing as more people accept and turn to massaging the prostate.
Lelo, a leading Swedish manufacture of sex toys says that sales for prostate massagers have been rising as more men turn to the practice. Another survey carried out by the company indicated that at least 71% of men had at some point tried or were willing to massage their prostate while 80% of women had no issues massaging their partner’s prostate.
The figures from the above study reveal that though it was considered taboo in many societies, more and more people are accepting prostate massaging and don’t find anything wrong with it. It is no longer associated with gay men or perverts, a sentiment that is supported by Billy Procida, the host of a popular podcast known as “The Manwhore Podcast.” He claims that there are many straight guys who massage their prostate even though they don’t talk about it.
One reason that is making prostate massage popular is because it gives better orgasms that last much longer than the ordinary orgasm. According to Charlie Glickman, the author of “The Ultimate Guide to Prostate Pleasure: Erotic Exploration for Men and Their Partners” , people who have tried massaging their prostate claim that the feeling is similar to that experienced at the beginning of an orgasm; however, it normally lasts for a longer time leading to stronger ejaculations.
Women have also been quoted saying that after starting to massage their partner’s prostate, the sexual experience went a notch higher, their men were more satisfied, and the ejaculation was twice or three times the usual quantity. Lelo claims that the intensity and volume of the orgasm can increase by 33% if a prostate massager is used.
The discovery that massaging the prostate helps deal with symptoms associated with sexual dysfunction (ejaculatory problems and weak erections) and low testosterone level. It also prevents Benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) a condition that is symbolic with an enlarged prostate, inflammation of the prostate gland (chronic Prostatitis), and bladder infections.
A good number of men took up prostate massage after learning that it also lowers the risk of cancer of the prostate. Latest statistics show that cases of prostate cases are rising fast and people below the age of 50 are becoming affected. According to the American Medical Association (AMA), cancer of the prostate is the leading type of cancer and accounts for 25% of all the cases.
Studies have shown that massaging the prostate lowers the risk of cancer of the prostate and if the current trend holds, the days of classifying prostate massage as a taboo will soon be over.
