A lot of guys get a bit squeamish when you mention the prostate. But trust us, this walnut-sized organ found near the rectal opening can be nearly as fun as the penis itself—just a little stimulation and bam, an intense, unforgettable orgasm. 

What’s even more shocking than the ecstasy that the prostate brings are the bonafide health benefits of prostate massage…a great excuse if your partner finds it a bit strange. 

Here’s why we think every guy should get in on the benefits of a regular prostate massage.

1. It May Help You Get Hard and Get Off

Erectile dysfunction is a condition that happens to men of all ages. Some guys have found that prostate stimulation helps them get hard, while others who struggle to orgasm have achieved their goal thanks to this handy organ. Keep in mind that there haven’t been studies to back this up, but it’s pretty simple to run your own solo study to see if you find any benefit.

2. It Can Help You Pee

A swollen prostate can interrupt the flow of urine down the urethra. When this happens, you may notice a slow stream, a stream that starts and stops, or an inability to urinate altogether. While it’s wise to visit your doctor if this happens, they may recommend that you massage your prostate to relieve symptoms. Prostate stimulation can decrease inflammation, helping urine flow freely.

3. It Might Ease Pain During Ejaculation

Pain when cumming is something no man wants to experience, but it isn’t uncommon. Massaging the prostate may release blocked fluids and relax the pelvic floor muscles so you can ejaculate without pain. If this doesn’t work, we recommend a quick doctor’s visit. You may have an infection that requires a different treatment.

4. It Can Alleviate Symptoms of an Enlarged Prostate

Benign prostate hyperplasia, more commonly known as prostate gland enlargement, is pretty common for men over 50. While it’s unlikely to kill you, the symptoms—like a constant need to urinate, bladder stones, and post-urination dribbling—are uncomfortable and embarrassing. 
Men with an enlarged prostate should see their doctor given that medications, surgery, and lifestyle changes may be necessary to ease symptoms and minimize complications. One study of men with an enlarged prostate found that prostate massage may help relieve symptoms when used with medications.
