Prostate massagers are a very popular type of men’s sex toy that can provide explosive pleasure and be a boon for sexual health. Keep reading to learn all about how prostate massagers work, who can use prostate massagers, and where to buy high-quality prostate massagers.

What is the prostate?

The prostate is a small gland (about the size of a walnut) located between the base of the penis and the rectum. Sometimes the prostate is referred to as the p-spot and prostate sex toys may be called p-spot massagers or p-spot sex toys.

What is prostate massage and what is a prostate massager?

Prostate massage is deliberate stimulation of the prostate. A prostate massager is a sex toy designed to stimulate the prostate. These prostate sex toys deliver pleasure as well as potential health benefits.

Why is prostate massage good for you?

In addition to the pleasure, there may be health benefits to prostate massages. According to Healthline, “Prostatic massage is thought to help clear the prostatic duct. This duct, or pipeline, runs between your prostate and the rest of your reproductive and urinary system. Massaging may produce a spontaneous secretion of fluid. This secretion may help clear this duct of any fluids.”

Who can use a prostate massager?

Anyone with a prostate can use a prostate massager. People born with penises have a prostate.

How is a prostate massager different from a butt plug?

A prostate massager is different from a butt plug because they have different purposes. Both prostate massagers and butt plugs are designed for anal use.  They both have flared bases, similar shapes, and require lubricant. Butt plugs are designed to sexually stimulate the anal canal, while prostate massagers are shaped specifically to stimulate the prostate. Another difference is that butt plugs don’t require you to do anything once you’ve inserted them. For prostate massagers to be fully effective, they will need to be moved around gently once inserted in order to stimulate the prostate.

How do I use a prostate massager?

Using a prostate massager is similar to using a butt plug. Since they are inserted anally, you’ll want to make sure you have plenty of lube. If you’re using a silicone prostate massager, use water-based lubricant, since silicone lubricant will break down silicone sex toys. You may want to put a towel beneath you to catch any stray lube.

Go slowly and insert the prostate massager about an inch at a time. Take your time and don’t rush the process. It’s important to be in a comfortable and relaxed  position. 

If you’re using a vibrating prostate massager, you can turn it on before inserting it or wait to turn it on after it’s inserted.

From there, check in with yourself about the sensations. Prostate massages can be intensely powerful, and prostate sex toys can evoke physical sensations along with emotions you may not have prepared for.

What are the best prostate massagers?

There are powerful prostate massagers that are each shaped a little differently and provide different routes to the same type of pleasure via prostate stimulation. You may need to experiment to find the prostate massager that works best for you and your intimate needs. Here are some of the best prostate massagers for those wanting to enjoy prostate play:
