Did you know, orgasms that usually involve stimulation of the penis said it could also occur in the prostate. Dr. Roy Levin, a researcher at Sheffield University, found a surprising fact about prostate orgasm. However, is it true that stimulating the prostate can trigger orgasm?
What is prostate?
The prostate is one part of the male reproductive system in the form of a small gland the size of a walnut. It is located below the bladder and is right in front of the rectum.
The prostate gland makes up part of the fluid contained in the semen. This one gland also carries sperm from the testes when you ejaculate. Its size will usually continue to grow with age. From only the size of walnuts to the size of a lemon.
Then, can prostate orgasm really happen?
Orgasm is the culmination of sexual pleasure that is usually felt during intercourse. Usually this is characterized by contractions that are strong enough in the penis area. In addition, during orgasm, the heart rate and blood pressure will usually increase which is accompanied by tightening of the muscles in some parts of the body.
Susan Milstein, Ph.D., a lecturer on sex and lecturer in the Department of Health Enhancement, Exercise Science and Physical Education at Rockville Campus of Montgomery College, Maryland, states that the prostate can be categorized as a male G-spot.
Just like the clitoris, the prostate has a lot of nerve endings that can arouse it even to orgasm. Prostate massage may be a way to stimulate the prostate and find new sexual pleasure.
Unfortunately, studies that discuss prostate orgasm are still very minimal. In addition, there are still many doubts that stimulating the prostate through the rectal wall can create pleasure beyond stimulation of the penis.
Even though it is a fact that the prostate gland has many nerves just like the clitoris. However, scientific evidence that is still very minimal makes prostate orgasm still a thing that cannot be conclusively concluded.
Orgasm can maintain male prostate health
Apart from prostate orgasms that are still being debated, one thing is certain that orgasms can reduce men's chances of getting prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer among men other than skin cancer. Quoted from the Telegraph, the study found that once a day orgasm can reduce the risk of prostate cancer by almost a quarter.
Research shows that participants who had ejaculated more than 21 times a month had a 22 percent lower risk of prostate cancer compared to those less than that number. The intended ejaculation is not necessarily from sexual intercourse, but all activities that make men ejaculate.
Although the cause is not known for sure but orgasm does have many health benefits. From starting to reduce stress, increase immunity, and also improve the quality of your sleep.
