The p spot, also known as the male equivalent of the G spot, helps achieve full, intense, and deep orgasms. In this article, we will introduce you to the P spot, where you can find it, and how it can spice up your sex life.
What is P Spot and How Does it Make Sex Feel Better?
The P Spot: What Is It?
The P spot refers to the prostate, a small walnut-sized muscular gland that produces the seminal fluid that helps sperm travel and to survive. When stimulated, the p spot creates an intensely pleasurable sensation during orgasm.
Compared to penile orgasms, prostate orgasms often require a shorter refractory period or recovery time in general. For that reason, prostate orgasms are sometimes associated with the possibility of multiple orgasms. It may even be possible for some men to achieve orgasms through prostate stimulation alone.
How to Locate Your P Spot (And How to Stimulate It)
There are two ways to locate the p spot – internally or externally. You may do this solo or with a partner. Since the prostate gland swells during arousal, it would be easier to find it when you are already turned on.
Anatomically, the prostate is located between the rectum and the bladder. A direct way to feel the prostate is through the anus, about two inches deep or about the first knuckle in if you are using your finger.
How to Do Internal Prostate Massage
Make sure the anal area, as well as your fingers, are as clean as possible. Using gloves and lubricant may also ease up the process. You may feel minor discomfort for the first attempts, but it should not cause unbearable pain.
Start by massaging the anal area and then slowly slip a finger or two. Find the prostate by gently performing the “come here” gesture. Men may feel the sensation of needing to pee – meaning you are in the right spot since the prostate is near the bladder.
You can also stimulate the prostate via the perineum, the area between the scrotum and the anus. This tender and sensitive spot consist of numerous erotically charged nerve endings, making it a less penetrative option to achieve orgasms.
In external prostate massage, you may not feel the p spot directly. However, just like the internal prostate massage, touching this area may cause the sensation of having to pee.
Prostate Massage in Medical Uses
Urologists conduct prostate massage as a part of a routine digital rectal examination (DRE) to diagnose prostate cancer, one of the most common health concerns among men.
Prostate massage also works to obtain Expressed Prostatic Secretion (EPS), the fluid released by the prostate. Doctors analyze this specimen for microbiological culture and microscopy to screen for prostatitis. Prostatitis is a condition that causes pain in the groin area, difficulty urinating, painful urination, and other symptoms.
Patients with chronic prostatitis often visit their doctors for prostate massages two to three times per week for the first month. The frequency of sessions reduces as symptoms improve.
Risks and Precautions
Prostate massage (internal) is generally safe as long as you take precautions. Vigorous prostate massage may cause injuries such as:
You can avoid these adverse consequences by practicing good hygiene, being gentle, and using lubricants.
The Bottom Line
Finding the P spot and knowing how to stimulate it can be tricky – and it may take some time, practice, and a lot of patience to get to the fun part. Whether you are doing it alone or with your partner, practicing safety is the best way to get started.
