All About Milking the Prostate

Prostate cancer is a disease that affects only men. It is a cancer of the prostrate gland, which is found in the male reproductive tract, and is not present in the female body. All men who are in their fifties or older may be at risk for developing prostate cancer. It is one of the leading causes of death by cancer among men; in the United States, prostate cancer is second only to skin cancer in the number of male fatalities caused each year, according to the National Cancer Institute.

However, prostate cancer often goes undiagnosed in its early stages, mainly because it often doesnt present any symptoms in those who have it. A lot of men who have prostate cancer never get the therapeutic care that they require, and indeed they die from it. If you are concerned that you may contract prostate cancer in the future, you might want to seek out preventive treatments that can lower your risk of getting it. Let us take a look at one of these possible preventative treatments: prostate milking.

Milking the prostate is a technique of stimulating the prostate gland by hand or implement, causing it to ejaculate seminal fluid. In the hand method, someone must insert their fingers in your rectal area in order to milk the prostate. (It is difficult to milk the prostate by yourself, so it is usually done by a partner or a medical professional.) Milking the prostate is also termed by some people as "prostate massage."

Here is how it is done: One person must pull on a latex glove, add a little water-based lube on the fingertips, and carefully insert them into your anus. The fingers must feel inwards and upwards, roughly in the direction of your navel, until they are touching the prostate gland, which feels like a small, round bulb of tissue roughly the size of a walnut. At that point, the prostate gland can be massaged gently by rubbing one's fingers back and forth against its sides, being careful not to rub vigorously on its central area where there are sensitive nerves. After a while, the massage should bring about an ejaculation of seminal fluid, often accompanied by sexual stimulation or orgasm. Ejaculation will not always occur, however.

Milking the prostate is not recommended as a method for cases in which the prostate gland is already diseased or has acute prostatitis, since a massage could cause the disease or infection to spread to other areas of the body.
