The Magic of the P-Spot
At the corner of happy and healthy, chances are you’ll find something a bit more exciting than cold relief tablets from your local Walgreens alone.
Here also stands the prostate—a walnut-sized gland capable of revolutionizing the orgasm as average guys have come to know it. Earning its claim to fame as “the male G-spot”, this pleasure-packed organ, when stimulated, is capable of both strengthening and intensifying climax by a whopping 33%!
What’s all the hubbub?
Biologically tasked with storing and secreting fluids, prostates are essential to the male orgasmic cycle. In addition to releasing sperm-protective liquid when the sensual finish line is crossed, it simultaneously flushes out toxins throughout the internal pipelines.
It lies past the rectum, below the bladder, and right at the penis’ root. Much like its mystical female fellow, the prostate can be difficult to find. Although some may say ‘just feel for the Hogwarts snitch,’ a little more guidance usually comes in handy.
As with many of the body’s erogenous zones, it always boils down to large groups of nerve endings. Since the anus has swarms of these incredibly sensitive little guys, it’s no surprise the prostate turns out to be a major combination of fun as well as function.
Treasure Pleasure Hunt
Given the prostate’s location, there are several ways to go about finding your stimulation stride, whether it’s on yourself or on a partner. As amazingly sensitive of an area as it is, massaging with any combination of finger, toy, pressure, and/or vibration can help hit the much sought-after hot spot. If you’re still just looking to work your way up, caressing the perineum (the skin between the scrotum and anus) is a solid avenue to indirectly spark the gland, too.
Upon said stimulation, the prostate slowly starts to get bigger. However, contrary to Damian’s theory—it’s not because the organ is full of secrets; rather, the physical build up of fluids during arousal that are then released upon ejaculation. Because the gland in and of itself enhances orgasm-induced feelings of euphoria, the increased amount of coursing fluids additionally makes it all the more mind-blowingly pleasurable.
P for Perfect
So like any great hunt for tantalizing treasure, the elusive quest for prostate-fueled pleasure is often deemed totally #worthit once unlocked. Reaping fruits of the big search’s labor in addition to realizing all that you had been missing, it’s pretty hard to beat achieving orgasms that are both stronger and longer lasting in the end.
Whether equipped with a prostate or not, there’s a lot to be said for the value of being informed. Guys are often criticized for being clueless about the female body, so isn’t returning the favor the very least we can do? Regardless of your (or your partner’s) reason for exploring this anatomical mystery, it’s easy to see the prostate is nothing to fear, as well as something we can all stand getting to know a little better.
