Prostate Massagers: The Stimulating History
Ever wonder where the idea of a prostate massager came from? Want to know what they’re about, and maybe see if it’s something you’d be comfortable with? The good news is that prostate massagers are no longer as taboo as they once were.
According to Dr. Geo of drgeo.com, “Prostate massage, also known as milking the prostate, is an old treatment for prostatitis.” The practice of prostate massage began thousands of years ago in China. This erotic knowledge was passed from tantric masters to the women of the emperor’s harem and was said to give a woman untold power while using pleasure.
Anal penetration has been looked at as taboo for millennia. Fast forward to the 1990’s when prostate milking became the #1 treatment for prostatitis, hence the invention of a tool to be used at home. That toy is growing in popularity today, and is known to give the best mind-blowing orgasm a man can experience!
Potential Perks of Prostate Massage
Apparently, there are many perks to pounding the prostate. Joshua R. Gonzalez, MD, says, “The theory behind the potential benefit involves an improvement in blood flow resulting from vigorous milking or massaging of the prostate. Because erections are largely the result of good blood flow, any increase could potentially lead to better boners.”
While the big O is the best possible benefit of anal play, and a big boner is excellent, there are many health benefits as well. It can help prevent prostate cancer, it can make ejaculation less painful (if it’s a problem), and it feels super freaking good. Plus, it can help to make hetero couples closer, win-win!
Prostate Massager Trends
The mere mention of butt pleasure for men has sparked a lot of controversy for years and through many cultures. “Our culture tends to conflate anal play and prostate pleasure with gay and bi men,” says sexologist Carol Queen. Anymore, though, it’s just not the case!
Claire Cavanah, co-founder of sex-toy retailer Babeland, affirms: “It’s a good time to have a penis and prostate when it comes to sex toys.” Worldwide stats can be found here regarding more recent purchases and interest in p-spot toys. If you’re curious, whether young or old, you’re not alone. Why not give it a go?
Popularity of Prostate Massagers
In recent times the male equivalent of the g-spot (now known as p-spot) has gained unprecedented popularity. Since Aneros came out with the first recreational toy for prostate milking in 2002, demand has surged. Not surprisingly, one of the best sex toys on the market right now is for men, and you guessed it, it’s a prostate massager!
“Maybe we are all humans who have bodies that are capable of pleasure in all sorts of ways and we are cutting ourselves off from a lot of it if we let ourselves be put into the box that society says we need to fit into,” writes sex therapist and educator Rena McDaniel. You can’t go wrong following advice from a pro like that. Go on, investigate for yourself, and give it a try. You might become addicted.
