Is Prostate Stimulation Good for Your Health?
This coming Thursday, NSFW will be hosting a private session of our Masters Series class Pegged. The class is being filmed by Vice's Slutever and will help some of our members get more comfortable with prostate play. In honor of the class, we wanted to share a little scientific knowledge from our friends at Aneros about the benefits of boy botty play.
Leading sexual health and wellness products manufacturer Aneros asserts that sexual health is a major factor in total health and well-being and a segment that is often overlooked by the medical industry. Plus, it looks like they got the science to support it.
"A once taboo subject, prostate massage is gaining more acceptance among men as they discover its health and lifestyle benefits", said Brent Aldon, director of sales and marketing for Aneros.
As early as 2009, a study associated the use of prostate massage with a reduction in lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) complications. The study, conducted by the Department of Urology at Columbia University Medical Center, was based on 154 men who used prostate massagers over a two-year period. 90 percent of the subjects suffered from ailments like enlarged prostate, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, and overactive bladder.
The study pitted traditional in-office prostate massage against at-home-use of a prostate massage device for treating the conditions.
The study's results showed that the majority of men expressed "very good improvement to total alleviation of their lower urinary tract symptoms, that included pelvic pain and enlarged prostate. Moreover, the study stated "This device may have various advantages over traditional in-office prostate massage including the potential for increased frequency, which may in turn alleviate symptoms more rapidly." As a bonus, practicing prostate stimulation at home produced less stigma or mental burden on the patient.
A more recent paper by independent researcher R.J. Levin, published last year by Wiley Periodicals in the United Kingdom, showed the effectiveness of Aneros prostate massagers in inducing orgasms in men and helping improve their sexual response. One individual interviewed by the researcher said he was suffering from prostatitis, (inflammation of the prostate), when he decided to use a prostate massager to alleviate the symptoms.
"The prostatitis symptoms resolved within 2 months of regular use, several times weekly combined with tadalafil. However, he found the powerful orgasms produced by the device highly addictive, imparting a residual sexual potential even after its use was discontinued.
Levin wrote, "Our subject found that he could achieve intense orgasms by lying prone wearing a condom without the Aneros present, the condom and the pillows being sufficient stimuli to trigger a reflex orgasm without any direct mechanical stimulation… the ability to orgasm without the device has persisted for at least 12 months."
Other benefits of prostate massage have been cited by Medical News Today's Danielle Dresden who described the prevention of prostate fluid build-up, the improved effectiveness of antibiotics in treating prostatitis, the support of healthy prostate function, the reduction of pain and discomfort of a congested prostate and the overall enhancement of sexual activity.
