Prostate massage body if massage is performed. 1.1.2 History Once the most popular therapeutic maneuver used to treat prostatitis, it was abandoned as primary therapy in the 1960s. In the late 1990s the ineﬀectiveness of drug treatments for chronic prostatitis led to a brief resurgence of interest in prostate massage. In a recent trial, however, prostate massage was not shown to improve outcomes compared to antibiotics alone.

Digital rectal examination (DRE)
Electroejaculation is a procedure in which nerves are stimulated via an electric probe, which is inserted into the rectum adjacent to the prostate. The stimulus voltage stimulates nearby nerves, resulting in contraction of the pelvic muscles and ejaculation. It is most commonly encountered in animal husbandry for the purpose of collecting semen samples for testing or breeding. Some devices are used under general anesthesia on humans who have certain types of anejaculation. Electroejaculation is a diﬀerent procedure from manual prostate massage.
Prostate massage is part of the digital rectal examination (DRE) routinely given to men by urologists in order to look for nodules of prostate cancer and to obtain an expressed prostatic secretion (EPS) specimen for microscopy and microbiological culture to screen for prostatitis. 1.1.1

2 Prostate massage as sexual practice
In the late 1990s, a small number of doctors tried prostate massage in conjunction with antibiotics for the treatment of chronic bacterial prostatitis with uncertain results. In recent trials, however, prostate massage was not shown to improve outcomes compared to antibiotics alone. As a consequence of these ﬁndings, prostate massage is not oﬃcially sanctioned in western medicine for the treatment of any medical disorder today. Prostatic massage should never be performed on patients with acute prostatitis, because the infection can spread elsewhere in the
2.1 General Prostate massage is also used for sexual stimulation, often in order to reach orgasm. The prostate is sometimes referred to as the “male G-spot". Some men can achieve orgasm solely through stimulation of the prostate gland, 1

by batteries and oﬀer vibration at the tip, which may be changed depending on the personal preference. Unlike vaginal dildos, the anal prostate massager has a ﬂared end to prevent it from being lost in the rectum. Some men prefer anal plugs, which are easy to use, can be inserted freely and left in place while the man’s hands are free for other sexual activities such as masturbation. Anal plugs also come in various shapes, sizes and designs and although they are not commonly intended to stimulate the prostate, newer, more angled models are now available to provide a more vigorous massage to the prostate. The new anal plugs have a more curved shape and are slightly longer than the originals. They commonly have a narrow neck and a ﬂared end to avoid losing them in the rectum. Some of the newer models come with batteries and vibrations that increase sexual pleasure.
Prostate massage may also be a common sexual practice in couples’ sexual lives. The advent of equipment and products for prostate massage encourages people to try it. Many couples though do not purchase such devices but use a ﬁnger for anal penetration and prostate stimulation to enhance the man’s orgasm. The ﬁnger or the prostate massager is introduced into the rectum through the anus and the prostate gland is gently massaged. The main problem in using the ﬁnger is that it may be too short to reach the prostate gland. Prostate massage can be performed individually or with the help of a partner. Some A G-spot vibrator can be used as a prostate massager as men prefer being anally stimulated by their partner during long as it is handled carefully and is provided with a safety foreplay or after their main form of sexual activity. base that will not allow it to be lost in the rectum.
