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.
