Understanding the Prostate: What it is and what is prostate cancer

The prostate seems to be a mysterious part of the body, for those that have one and those that don’t, but it doesn’t need to be a mystery. There is so much known about the prostate, medically and scientifically, but not more generally. If you’ve ever wondered about the prostate, then you are in the right place. You’re about to get a crash course on what the prostate is, general reproductive functions, how it relates to pleasure, and what prostate cancer is. 

What Is It and What Does It Do?

The prostate is also known as the p-spot or the male g-spot. It is a walnut-sized organ that sits below the bladder and in front of the rectum. Its function is to make some of the fluid that carries semen. The muscles in the prostate also help to push semen through the urethra. Many people are not aware that the prostate actually grows larger in size after a man or AMAB (assigned male at birth) person turns 40 from benign prostatic hyperplasia. Though the prostate is mostly discussed for its reproductive related functions, it also has pleasurable functionality.

The Prostate & Pleasure

The prostate is commonly referred to as the male g-spot, because stimulation of it can provide pleasure. The prostate can be stimulated in two ways: externally and internally. For external stimulation you would apply pressure between the anus and the scrotum. Using pressure, you should feel a hard, circular bulge–that is the prostate. You can massage in little circles or apply vibration with a vibrator. To stimulate the prostate internally a finger has to be inserted into the anus about 1.5-2 inches deep. You will lean your finger forward in the direction of the penis to stimulate the prostate. You can massage in little circles or do the come-hither motion for stimulation. You can also enjoy hands-free internal prostate stimulation with sex toys specifically designed to reach the prostate like the We-Vibe Vector+.

Prostate Cancer

Though the prostate may not seem like a major organ for day-to-day life, it is still a part of the body that can become cancerous. Prostate cancer is when prostate cells begin to grow out of control. The Prostate Cancer Foundation explains that prostate cancer is “a slow-growing cancer that does not spread beyond the prostate gland before the time of diagnosis.” There are both biological and genetic subtypes of prostate cancer. If you are wanting to reduce your risk of prostate cancer you are going to want to have a healthy diet with fruits and vegetables and green tea and soy. Another common recommendation is a prostate massage, though this is still being proven scientifically and medically, it never hurts to enjoy some pleasure to help save your life or the life of someone you love. 

Now that you understand the prostate more and prostate cancer you can feel more connected to your body and keep an eye out for any changes that arise that you should take to your medical professional. You can also explore a new avenue of pleasure with prostate stimulation.
