Prostate massage is a physical procedure which can be done by a man's partner (for pleasure) or by a physician (for prostate health). It involves inserting a finger into the anus and massaging the prostate.
According to Erika Thost, M.D., author of “Sexy Prostate: Male G-Spot Massage for Pleasure and Health,” many men and couples enjoy prostate massage for pleasure, but also for helping improve their prostate health when they’re having symptoms.
For more information regarding prostate massage, see Dr. Thost’s website:
To massage prostate, the health professional inserts a lubricated, gloved finger into your rectum and presses several times on prostate. This may need to be done 2 or 3 times a week. Why this works is not certain, but it is believed that the massage helps open blocked ducts in the prostate, improving circulation and antibiotic penetration into the prostate.
