The prostate is a gland in the male reproductive system. It is not found in women. Its main function is the production of seminal fluid and it also stimulates orgasm in men. The prostate gland can be affected by diseases, including infectious inflammation or prostatitis, and prostate cancer, the second deadliest cancer among American men. Many people recommend milking the prostate regularly as a preventive treatment for prostate cancer and prostatitis.
Prostate milking is also known as prostate massage. It is a fairly simple procedure and you can do it yourself if you wish. These are the steps to follow to milk the prostate on your own:
1. Perform a urination or bowel movement to maximize relaxation of the area.
2. Make sure your nails are trimmed and do not have jagged edges sticking out.
3. Cleanse your body and hands thoroughly. Then put a sterile latex glove on your hand. Apply some water-based lubricant to your fingers.
4. Gently insert your finger or fingers into your anus. Gradually move them up and back, along the rectum area towards the front of your body. Your fingers should move roughly in the direction of your belly button.
5. You will feel the prostate gland, which is like a small, round bulb the size of a large walnut. Gently massage in a slight undulating motion along its sides, being careful not to press hard on the central area, where the sensitive nerves are located. Avoid touching the prostate gland with your fingernails.
6. You may experience a disconcerting sensation that makes you want to go to the bathroom even though it is not necessary. Try not to affect you and continue with the procedure.
7. After a few minutes, the prostate gland can be stimulated enough for ejaculation to occur. You are also likely to experience sexual pleasure or orgasm. However, the procedure does not always produce ejaculation successfully.
Milking the prostate when used as a preventive treatment can carry some risks. It is a technique that is not recommended for men who have a disease of the prostate or acute prostatitis, an acute inflammation of the glandular tissue. The problem in such cases is that the act of milking the prostate can cause the infection to spread to other areas of the body.
