Prostate massage and prostate milking are both commonly used terms to describe the massage or stimulation of the prostate gland either for medical or sexual reasons. Both terms are frequently used when the purpose is the relief of the symptoms of chronic prostatitis by a doctor and prostate milking or milking the prostate is used more often when the purpose is draining prostatic fluid during sexual activity to achieve a specific effect. Both can be performed internally or externally, but I will describe the internal technique here.
The prostate gland is just one part of the complex male reproductive system. It produces seminal fluid and functions in the process of ejaculation and orgasm. The gland is about the size of a walnut and is positioned directly behind the bladder. It’s prone to many conditions and diseases including, acute prostatitis, chronic prostatitis, enlarged prostate or BPH (benign prostatic hypertrophy) and prostate cancer.
The prostate milking technique is as follows (also sometimes prostate massagers or other milking or medical devices are used).
It’s best not to attempt this unless you’re sure you don’t have chronic prostatitis or any other serious condition. It’s always preferable to be cleared by your doctor first.
1. Gather your equipment together. You’ll need sterile non-latex gloves. Do not use latex gloves; serious allergies can develop over time with repeated use. You’ll need gloves that won’t snag or tear easily from sharp fingernails, etc. You can find these cheaply in any store with a pharmacy or over-the-counter drug section. You’ll also need some lubricant that is water-based; you can get this at your pharmacy also if you don’t already have some. Don’t use oils, lotions or perfume-based lotions; these contain irritants.
2. Check out your fingernails and make sure they are clipped and/or filed smoothly and won’t snag the gloves.
3. Take a trip to the bathroom and completely empty your bladder and bowels. This will help you relax more and will lessen the chance of an accident. Wash the area around your anus thoroughly to avoid any transfer of organisms. Wash your hands thoroughly and scrub them with a nail brush.
4. Get into a comfortable position, usually on the back or side. Put on one of the sterile gloves. You can use gloves on both hands if you like. Put a little of the lubricant on the fingers of the gloves you’re going to use.
5. Gently insert one or more fingers – better to start with one until you know what you’re doing. Be very careful if you have hemorrhoids. If that’s the case you may want to have them checked out by your doctor first. Move you finger slowly up the wall of the rectum, until you can feel the prostate gland. Be very gentle. No forcing or pushing. The gland will feel like a small ball.
6. Carefully and gently stroke or massage the gland along the sides only with your finger tips, not fingernails. You don’t want to touch the center or the top where there are many sensitive nerves and where you could do some damage.
7. Note the time. You should do this for only a few minutes. You may experience some odd feelings or sensations. And you may feel like you have to go to the bathroom but that should pass. Once the gland has contracted it will release some seminal fluid. You may or may not experience sexual pleasure, orgasm or ejaculation; this varies from person to person.
8. Carefully take off the gloves to avoid contamination and dispose of the gloves – they are no longer sterile and can’t be cleaned properly. Wash your hands thoroughly using a nail brush.
Prostate milking or prostate massage has been practiced by prostate specialists for many years for specific medical conditions. It’s controversial however. Although many men have been using this technique, there are risks involved. If you have any known or hidden condition or infection or inflammation of the prostate it’s possible to cause a serious systemic infection. The best approach is to get thoroughly checked out by your doctor first before you proceed.
