From pegging to butt plugs to anal vibrators to milking, as well as fingering and (for some) even fisting, stimulating the prostate can be a source of so much sexual pleasure to so many people. The Internet, as well as this blog, is chock full of whys and how-tos of how to get the very most out of your prostate, and there’s no confusion as to why: many people find that it feels really, really great. But is all that pleasure good for the prostate? Are we giving back to our prostates?

The prostate plays such an important role in our sexual activity, not to mention our reproductive health, so we should be speaking more about how to take care of it.

What does the prostate even do?

It’s a semen factory

Your apricot-sized prostate gland produces an alkaline fluid that mixes with secretions from the seminal vesicles and sperm delivered via the vas deferens in an area known as the ejaculatory duct, which exists in the heart of the prostate. With their powers combined, they produce semen!

It’s a pump

During orgasm, the smooth muscles surrounding the prostate gland assist in pumping semen into the urethra to expel it from the body and let it reach its final destination (wherever that may be).

It’s a filter

The prostate further assists in releasing healthy sperm by filtering out toxins to help protect our “swimmers.” Things like diet and environment can have an effect on how much filtering work your prostate has to do, so be sure to take a look at what you’re eating and how it can affect your sexual responses. Heck, since we’re on the subject, there might also be things you can eat to increase your libido.

It’s Like a G-spot

When stimulated during sexual activity, the prostate can potentially provide you with one of the most intense orgasms you can possibly have. Many men find that prostate stimulation (whether alone or coupled with penile stimulation) enhances their climax. If you’re not experienced with this, there are so many resources about how to have a prostate orgasm to help you get started – thank us later!

More Fun than an Apple a Day

Research suggests that maintaining a certain number of regular ejaculations (about 20 a month, on average) may help to keep the prostate gland clear of toxins and promote better prostate health. On a more general level, research suggests that the health benefits of frequent sexual activity may also work wonders for your overall health. Frequent sexual activity is linked to better physical and mental health.

The Journal of the American Medical Association reported findings that back up the 20 orgasms a month figure, finding that these people were 33% less likely to develop prostate cancer than those who orgasmed less often.

These numbers stack up to a similar Australian study, in which guys who averaged between four and seven ejaculations every week, be it via masturbation or intercourse, were 36% less likely to be diagnosed with prostate cancer before reaching 70 years of age than those who ejaculated less frequently.

So there’s one very agreeable way to maintain a healthy prostate: keep on coming!

Meanwhile, Assistant Professor of Urology at UCLA’s Jonsson Cancer Center Christopher Saigal, MD, gives some practical advice that sounds to us like simple common sense: keep a healthy weight level, get regular exercise, and don’t smoke. 

But specifically, he tells us that when it comes to diet, to focus on antioxidant foods like broccoli, cauliflower, kale, cabbage, and brussels sprouts will help you keep your prostate at its peak for years of pleasure.
