A prostate orgasm is an orgasm in men derived primarily through stimulation of the prostate gland, rather than the more conventional penile stimulation. The organ is often compared to the Gräfenberg Spot, or G-Spot, in women, which reportedly induces more intense orgasms than sole stimulation of the genitals. A prostate orgasm is achieved by massaging the prostate gland, found near the anterior part of the rectal wall. Some experts believe that achieving a prostate orgasm can reduce the symptoms of and prevent prostatitis and benign prostatic hyperplasia. On the other hand, the methods used to induce the orgasm can result in numerous health risks, most common of which is periprostatic hemorrhaging.

The prostate gland's chief function in males is to store prostatic fluid, a milky-white substance that comprises up to 30 percent of an individual's semen at ejaculation. The prostate normally gets stimulated during conventional sexual stimulation, secreting the fluid when an individual achieves orgasm. Individuals have found that more direct stimulation of the gland results in sensations comparable to sexual pleasure, making a prostate orgasm fully possible. In numerous reports, prostate stimulation has been found to be more intense than genital stimulation, leading some individuals to prefer prostate orgasms over conventional ones.

The gland is located near the inferior posterior end of the urinary bladder in males. Given its position, there is no way to directly stimulate the prostate. Most individuals interested in inducing a prostate orgasm do so by massaging the gland through the anterior rectal wall, accessed via the anus. Individuals can use their fingers or other implements to locate the chestnut-sized organ and gently rub it. If the intensity and frequency of the stimulation is sufficient, individuals will be able to achieve orgasm.

Medical experts believe that the prostate massages used to achieve orgasms can be beneficial to an individual's long-term health. As early as the 1960s, doctors had been using prostate orgasm as a treatment for prostate swelling; in some cases of prostatitis, the massage was sometimes sufficient enough to cure patients of the condition. This has led some experts to argue that continued prostate massaging can help prevent common prostate disorders.

Some individuals, however, might encounter health risks while trying to achieve a prostate orgasm. A number of cases have been reported in which patients rupture the rectal wall during prostate stimulation, resulting in hemorrhaging. Any injury to the rectal wall can also increase the risk of serious infections. Over-stimulation of the prostate, on the other hand, can cause severe damage to the organ and increase the likelihood of medical complications.

Fine, but I don't think that comparing the prostate with the female G-spot is a good comparison. The prostate is a very real entity, while the existence of a female G-spot is heavily questioned by most researchers nowadays. Most of them have concluded that the sensitive area that some women feel inside the vagina is nothing more than clitoral nerves, and in fact, most women appear not to have them. So I don't think that making artificial and unscientific comparisons helps to understand the way the prostate works very much.

As someone who has had what is known as a super orgasm, I can tell you, if you are not exploring what your prostate can do for your sex life, you are missing out on something pretty cool! I'm married, kids, full-time job, the whole thing, and my prostate is now a very good friend! How about having one hour long multiple orgasms for starters? Check it out, guys!

My most explosive and powerful orgasms have been through prostate stimulation via the anus with both vibrating and non vibrating toys designed for anal insertion. To share this type of intense sensation with a lover is even more incredible. Sadly, most won't even get there alone.

@pleonasm - I suspect that people do the most damage when they are acting out kinky fantasies, without researching how to do them right. I mean, when you think about it, there are millions of people all over the world who engage in anal sex all the time, almost certainly stimulating the prostate while doing it, and they don't have any trouble.

One thing to remember, aside from doing your research, is to make sure that you use a condom on whatever toys you might choose to use for this. It helps to ensure that they aren't going to be contaminated with bacteria.

@Ana1234 - It's unfortunate that men and women rarely hear about this area, barring the misinformation that often gets thrown around by women's magazines ("Prostrate him with his prostate!").

All that is really needed is a well placed, well lubed finger. And permission to use it of course. Going there without permission is not a good idea at all.

I suspect that, most of the time, injuries to the prostate are not caused by gentle stimulation, but from men getting carried away, or indulging in unsafe activities. I don't want people to get the idea that stimulating the prostate gland is, in itself, a dangerous activity, because it isn't.

But the anus and that area of the body are fairly delicate and can be easily damaged if men (or women for that matter) use inappropriate objects or force, without decent lubricant.

Perhaps because it's such a taboo area, people don't think it needs to be treated with care. Personally, I'd rather see the taboo go and more people treating it with common sense.
