Can Perineum Massage
Help Your Prostate Gland?
Gentle perineum massage can often positively influence the health of not only your prostate gland, but your entire sexual system.
Because of our sexual designs, the perineum in men and women are considerably different. They are both located in the same spot. Between the anus and the
But, since this is a website devoted to prostate health, we will only be discussing the male perineum. And, the effects of male perineum massage on male sexual health and the prostate gland.
The Benefits Of Perineum Massage
Gently massaging the male perineum greatly relaxes the entire sexual system. Just gently rubbing the perineum always feels good. It's actually much more relaxing than erotic.
Massaging your perineum, however, has many benefits.
Gently stroking your perineum for a period of time can actual cause your entire body to relax, your pulse to slow, and your blood pressure to decrease. That is how powerful and beneficial a perineum massage can be!
Male Sexual Health
Perineum massage can also be of great benefit to your sexual health!
The reason is: the nerves running to ALL of your sexual apparatus run through the perineum.
A gentle perineum massage refreshes all of these nerves. It also relaxes these nerves and helps to rejuvenate them.
When the nerves of your body are relaxed and working properly, all the bodily functions they connect to work better and feel better. This is how your general sexual health may improve from this massage.
Locating Your Perineum
If you lay back, open your legs up, and explore the area between your scrotum and your anus, that is your perineum.
If you rub the area with your finger tips, you will notice a sort of wide rope or cable going right up the middle. That is what you will massage when you are massaging your perineum.
How To Do A Perineum Massage
This massage is very simple to do.
Start right near your anus. Locate that cable of fibers right under the skin. The one that feels like a wide rope.
Place the 3rd and 4th fingers from each hand on either side of this "rope". The fingers of both hands gently touching each other.
Then press gently and move your fingers left to right over this "rope". The skin will move with your fingers. If it is at all painful your are pushing much too hard. It should feel good.
Massage as long as you want (15 - 20 seconds is usually enough) and then move your fingers about a half inch higher toward your penis. Repeat the massaging in the new location.
Keep moving up toward your penis in this fashion.
Go The Entire Length
When you reach your
you will find this "cord" or tube continues. But it changes. It becomes more tubes with less nerves and muscles.
Although the perineum muscles and most of the nerve bundle will end at about your scrotum, important sexual nerves continue all way to the tip of your penis.
You can continue this massage all the way up your penis if it feels good.The most important area in this massage, however, is the actual perineum area. And that is where you should spend most of your time during this massage.
A gentle massage of your perineum can be one of the most pleasurable and relaxing experiences there is. It only takes a few minutes.
Don't push too hard. This entire perineum massage should always be a pleasurable experience. If it is not, you're doing it wrong.
Perineum Massage vs Prostate Massage
There are some who claim a perineum massage is all the massage you need for your prostate gland. I never found that to be true.
A direct prostate massage with
correct prostate massage technique
always has a greater effect on the prostate gland.
A perineum massage can stimulate and activate the nerves in the prostate. But, a direct prostate massage is the only way to manually move the blood inside of the prostate gland.
If your prostate is in pain because of damage or abuse to the perineum (bicycle seats, impact to the perineum, horseback riding, etc...), gently rubbing (not even massaging, just gently stroking) the perineum will usually reduce the pain and speed the healing time.
No matter what the situation, gently stroking the perineum is almost always very soothing.
Your body has pain memory. It tries to protect itself from further damage when an injury has occurred.
So, sometimes, even after a perineum injury has healed, a lot pain persists. Or, it can be quite painful when the area is gently touched.
This can sometimes causes a lot of perineum, testicular, or prostate pain when there is actually nothing wrong any more.
If this is the case, pain memory can almost always be corrected by gently rubbing the area for a few minutes on a daily basis.
If you are just gently rubbing your perineum (not massaging), rubbing gently from scrotum to anus lengthwise with 3 or 4 fingers, instead of across with 2 fingers (as you do in the massage) is usually much more soothing and comforting.
The body soon learns that the gently touch is not an assault or trauma. It then begins to relax and become less touch sensative.
When the area feels OK after gentle rubbing, perineum massage may again be worked into gently and gradually.
Avoiding Perineum Injury
Because of it's location, it is usually pretty hard to reach the perineum and injure it. That space is normally very well protected by your legs, pubic bone, and pelvis.
BUT, as humans we always manage to find ways to screw things up.
(and activities like horseback riding, etc...) are the main way we seem to do this to the male perineum.
Bicycle seats can beat your perineum up badly and cause you all sorts of sexual pains and problems! This is especially true with high tech racing and mountain bike seats.
Usually you won't even see a bruise. But these damaged nerves can register severe pain not only where they are, but anywhere they connect.
If you ride a bike regularly and your prostate has begun to hurt for no explainable reason, or your testicles hurt for no reason, you may now have found the reason right here.
If you like to ride a bicycle, get a big fat seat. If you have prostate pain or testicular pain already, there are also some
specially designed prostate bicycle seats
that will keep you from putting any pressure on your perineum.
prostate bicycle seat
These seats don’t look nearly as cool as a real racing seat. And you don’t have the same control over the bicycle as the racing seats provide.
HOWEVER!, you won’t get the pain those high tech seats often give you either.
I bought one of these prostate bicycles seats myself and tried it out. They can feel a bit strange at first and the balance is a little different.
But, I became used to this new kind of seat in a short period of time . And, after an hour ride, I now feel absolutely no discomfort. And there is no discomfort later in evening or even the next day.
Enjoy The Benefits Of Perineum Massage!
Regular perineum massage can be a great addition to your prostate massage program.
Perineum massage is actually one of the peripheral prostate massages.
You don't have to do it every day.
But, when you are experiencing prostate discomfort, adding a perineum massage or just a gentle perineum rub to your prostate massage program can be extremely soothing, calming, and healing.
