September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month. Hopefully, you all know the basics of the prostate–what its function is, how to make it feel good and how to keep it the healthiest it can be.
The prostate is a small, squishy gland that sits under the bladder and in front of the rectum. The uretha–the narrow tube that runs the length of the penis that carries urine and semen out of the body–runs directly through the prostate. The prostate is located very close to several vital structures in the male body, so a healthy prostate will produce healthy and normal, urinary, bowel, sexual and fertility functions; likewise, prostate cancer and its treatment strategies can disrupt these functions. While we know a lot about the prostate, there are a great deal of myths and fun facts about it that a lot of us probably don’t know, so I cannot urge you enough to check out Sarah Sloane’s article on ’10 Things You Didn’t Know About the Prostate’ over at the MyPleasure blog.
When it comes to exploring the prostate in terms of sexual pleasure, a lot of men can find themselves to be a little hesitant, but when they hopefully feel ready to explore it further, they’ll find themselves wondering how they’ve lived without this type of pleasure for so long! The prostate, when stimulated, is said to feel much like g-spot stimulation; and any woman who has experienced fantastic g-spot stimulation will tell you that’s a feeling no one should be living without.
There are a great deal of prostate health toys on the market that are all suitable to not just begin your p-spot sexual health journey, but build upon it throughout your lifetime. September is Prostate Cancer Awareness Month and the awesome folks over at MyPleasure are running a fantastic promotion throughout this month. When you a buy a prostate health toy, you will save 10% on your purchase through MyPleasure; they will also donate 10% of your purchase to the Prostate Cancer Foundation, the leading philanthropic organization funding and accelerating prostate cancer research globally.
Curious about prostate play, but don’t know where to start? A long-term favorite in our house is the Aneros MGX. This men’s stimulator is medically-researched and designed specifically for simultaneous massage of the prostate and perineum, allowing for more intense and longer lasting orgasms!
There are so many really great choices when it comes to finding a toy that will satisfy your prostate, but if none of the prostate health toys do anything for you, remember that prostate and g-spot sex toys can often be interchanged–the curve of a toy for both is the same, and as long as the girth of the toy is something you’re comfortable with and you’re not hurting yourself when trying to use a g-spot toy for anal stimulation, then you have nothing to worry about.
