Your prostate, your pleasure

Prostate and sex

Here’s a big question for you, whatever your anatomy is: do you know exactly what the prostate is and how to use it for pleasure? According to a European study, a lack of awareness around what a prostate is and what it does is alarmingly high. And let’s not be fooled here, because we can assume this lack of insight extends beyond the EU. 

Think of the prostate and you probably conjure up a body part that needs to be squeamishly checked out by a health professional every so often. But know this – the prostrate is so much more. The key to pleasure for men both solo and with a partner, a good understanding of its workings and potential could be your fast track to sensual fulfillment. In CBD circles, the links between CBD and sexual pleasure are being explored as we speak, and although this research is in the preliminary stages, it’s a promising area. So, here, we delve into prostrate and sex, and how you can leverage it with the help of sex toys and CBD. 

Anatomy 101

But first, let’s dig into a little anatomy lesson. Found inside a man’s anatomy, nestled between the bladder and penis and in front of the rectum, the prostate is a gland that’s about the size of a walnut. Playing a part in the all-important function of helping men ejaculate in the traditional sense, (yup, there are different kinds of male orgasms depending on what part of the body is stimulated), it also has a recreational aspect to it, i.e., it can also be massaged to reach a specific prostate-induced orgasm.

 

So, now you’re down with the basics, here are the reasons why prostate orgasms could be life-changing in the bedroom.

  • Intense orgasms – according to anecdotal reports, men who have experienced a prostate orgasm talk up its full-body, top to toe intensity. Which explains why it’s been dubbed the “male G-spot”.
  • Getting a well-being boost – some believe that any kind of orgasm has potential health benefits including improving sleep, boosting your immune system, helping with migraines, and reducing the risk of heart disease. Note, however, these results are not conclusive, and more research is needed. 
  • You can enjoy it solo or partnered up – there are no hard and fast rules to exploring this pleasure zone alone or with someone else, although there are definite no-nos to how you do it. Safety is always key, and top tips include using toys with a flared base (no one wants to lose a toy up there), pressing too hard (think: instant soreness), always using lube (this region is not self-lubricating), or engaging in them if you have hemorrhoids or bacterial prostatitis. In short, swot up before you dive in. 
  • It may help with medical issues – we have to note that prostate massage therapy as it’s called has limited evidence to back up these kinds of health claims, but some smaller studies have shown links to prostate massage helping with painful ejaculation, erectile dysfunction, urine flow, and prostatitis. 

 

We would always say a hell-yeah to the opportunity to explore our pleasure zones, but we believe safety is key. If you are experiencing any medical challenges, be sure to speak to a health professional before trying anything at home. You need to know that exploring this potentially orgasmic-filled experience will be beneficial in all ways. And if you’re doing this just for fun, get reading to understand how to get the most from it. 

Tips to get there

Like any erogenous zone, finding out what feels good begins with gentle exploration. As mentioned before, you’ll also want to work out what kinds of toys work for you (remember, never risk anything that could get lost). Using condoms is endorsed by many, and the right kind of lube is a non-negotiable part of this kind of play, otherwise, pain would be the primary feeling, which is a definite no.

So, what about the kinds of sex toys for the prostate? Like anything in the sensual region, they come in all shapes and sizes, but rule number one is to choose something suitable for prostate play. Anal sex toys for men can include vibrators (AKA prostate massagers), plugs, and dildos. Just remember to check out what kind of lube is suitable for the toy of your choice and take this one at your own pace.  

Top Tip: Try Wake the Neighbors love lotion to up your pleasure, with CBD isolate to promote blood flow and ease tension for extra yumminess.    

Getting in the zone

tips for prostate play

Long stressful day? Life can sometimes get in the way of our sensual satisfaction and being in the mood is a must if you want to get all the joy. This can go double when trying something new, especially with a partner. So, make sure to find your happy place first, engaging in the stuff that relaxes you, whether those little things are sexual or not.  

Top Tip: Get a mood boost with Rain Cloud Repellent, a full-spectrum CBD with perk-inducing Gingko, turmeric, and vitamin C. 

CBD and prostate play

cbd for prostate

To see how CBD could benefit prostate arrousal, we first need to understand how it links to sex overall, with its promising benefits in this arena. Research into how CBD interacts with our endocannabinoid system (shortened to ECS) is what’s interesting to scientists. 

 

And if you’re wondering what the ECS does, it regulates essential stuff like mood, sleep, stress, and so on. It’s also thought to link to sexual arousal, cueing the reason why researchers are looking into how CBD may slot into the sensual world. Anecdotally, people have reported positive experiences with CBD and sex, but let’s just say that this study is ongoing, both in the labs and in the bedroom.
