Prostate Orgasm. What is it and How to Have One?

Table of contents

    The term “Super-O’s” is frequently employed by the online user community to refer to the best orgasms induced by prostate stimulation. This habit of stimulating the male prostate has long been associated with gay practices. However, over the past few decades, this behavior has also become more prevalent among heterosexual men, and numerous websites and discussion forums have begun to focus on this sexual practice. Moreover, specific products that allow men to stimulate their prostates via the rectum have been produced, and they have been incredibly successful in building a significant user community.  

    What is the prostate and where is it located?

    The human prostate is a walnut-sized organ only present is male individuals. It is situated in front of the rectum and beneath the bladder, encircling the latter’s neck. This organ is not visible, but it can be evaluated through the rectum, for instance, during a prostate cancer screening. It is densely innervated by various types of nerves, primarily the hypogastric and pelvic nerves.

    Contrary to popular belief, this organ performs a variety of functions, such as:

    • Its participation in the reproductive characteristics of the male ejaculate, and hence its procreative function: The prostate plays a role in the ejaculation process and thus the transmission of male sperm into the female’s genital conducts, this property conditions the procreation function.
    • Its involvement in the ecstasy of the orgasm: experts studied the involvement of the prostate in male sexual pleasure and concluded that it is indeed an erogenous area that many people overlook.
    • Its endocrine function: Some scientists suggested that this organ functions as a component of the endocrine system. In fact, the prostate is a gland that secretes strong hormone precursors that are crucial for the synthesis of hormones such as the precursor to testosterone. It was proven to have an impact on the levels of powerful androgens both locally and across the body.

    What is the male G-spot and where is it situated?

    The G-spot is a sensitive area present in females that can be felt through the front (belly-side) wall of the vagina about half way between the level of the pubic bone and the cervix (along the course of the urethra). Many men have a tendency to stimulate their prostate, which can result in an orgasm that is associated with a bearing-down sensation that is comparable to what women describe when they have an orgasm from G spot stimulation. Experts therefore proposed the term “the male G-spot” given that this region of the rectal wall resembles the female’s “G-spot” in that it produces a similar sensation when stimulated. Despite being technically erroneous, the term “male G-spot” is frequently used.

    What does a prostate orgasm feel like and is it different from penile orgasm?

    When the prostate is stimulated, some men report experiencing orgasms that are “deeper”, more global and intense, longer lasting, and accompanied with stronger sensations of ecstasy than orgasm induced just by penile stimulation. These orgasmic descriptions resemble the orgasmic experiences described by females in response to cervical and uterine stimulation. This similarity in descriptions of the orgasm sensations could be explained by the fact that the nerves that transmit sensory input from the cervix and uterus in women and the prostate gland in men are the same: the hypogastric nerves. In other words, the stimulation of the cervix or uterus in women and the prostate in men both activate the same nerves and thus could result in the same type of sensation.

    Interestingly, experts have shown that a single individual may have these orgasms repeatedly, contrary to some other kinds of orgasm.

    What happens during prostate orgasm?

    A number of things/changes happen during or right before prostate orgasm. These modifications include:

    • Erection: Some people get erections during prostate stimulation while others don’t.
    • Ejaculation: Stimulation of the prostate during anal intercourse can result in ejaculation in some men. According to specialists, orgasms brought on by prostatic massage are “emission type reflexive orgasms,” which means that they sometimes include a flow of semen from the penis (ejaculation).
    • Trembling sensation: Some people claim to experience intense bouts of shaking or shuddering before the induced orgasms occur. 

    How to have a prostate orgasm?

    In order to obtain this type of orgasm, it is important to know how to stimulate the prostate. This latter may be stimulated sexually through the rectum. Some people prefer manual stimulation or the use of sex toys while masturbating or during partnered foreplay while others choose to engage in anal sex in which the penis or strapon stimulates the prostate. There are several precautions and guidelines to follow if one wants to have a proper prostate stimulation and avoid pain or disease transmission, such as:

    • Communication and consent: Before engaging in partnered sexual activities, it is crucial to take into account their beliefs and level of comfort. While some people appreciate and embrace this type of stimulation, others do not. Therefore, it is important to communicate well with one’s partner(s) as no one should be forced or pushed into having this form of sexual activity.
    • Condom use: Some condoms are specifically made for anal sex and are stronger than regular condoms. In fact, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) can be spread through anal sex therefore it is of the utmost importance to use these condoms to avoid such problems and to enjoy a safe stimulation of the prostate.
    • Lubricant use: Because the rectum releases little natural lubrication, considerable amounts of lubricant may be required to minimize pain or injury during prostate stimulation via sex toys or penile penetration.
    • Starting slowly and advancing gradually: To avoid harm, it is advised to begin cautiously by massaging the anal region, then entering fingers to relax the anus, and then progressively moving forward.
    • Relaxation and taking time: Some people who practice prostate stimulation report that this procedure usually takes a good deal of time (at least 30 minutes) in order to finally achieve the desired prostate orgasm.

    Can trans women experience prostate orgasm? Can trans men still experience prostate orgasm after the gender confirming surgery?

    According to Dr. Christine McGinn, a plastic surgeon with professional training in transgender surgery, the procedure is known as “gender-confirming” surgery or “genital reassignment.” 

    Transmen are those who have female-to-male surgery. Due to the fact that they have female genital parts, these people do not have a prostate prior to surgery. The prostate remains absent even after the operation considering that the procedure mostly consists of converting existing female genital organs into male parts, including the penis and the testicles. Given that they have no prostate, such individuals are unable to experience this type of orgasm.

    Transwomenare people who undergo male-to-female surgery. The typical procedure for them is “penile inversion vaginoplasty.” It remodels the primary parts of the penis into feminine dimensions. In these people, and contrary to the previously mentioned case, the prostate remains in place following surgery and is an important source of orgasm.

    Does prostate surgery affect prostate orgasm?

    A lot of medical conditions affect the prostate and require surgical treatment including prostate cancer, prostate inflammation (prostatitis), and benign prostatic hyperplasia, which is an enlargement of this gland that typically happens with age. Prostatectomy, or the removal of the prostate gland, is one of the most common male pelvic surgeries. This operation may result in complications such as nerve and blood vessel damage and, at the very least, the removal of a vital male sex organ. The potential risks of having prostate surgery include:

    • Erectile dysfunction: Which is an occasional or complete loss of erection.
    • Loss of the contractions off the prostate and the seminal vesicles:  The diminished quality of orgasm may be partially explained by the lack of the sensation of seminal vesicle and prostate contractions.
    • Loss of the ability to ejaculate or experiencing painful ejaculation
    • Urine leakage during orgasms: which is also known as “orgasm-associated incontinence”. This problem may result in a reduced sexual pleasure and self-esteem.
    • Sexual drive disorder: which is a decline or loss of sexual desire and appetite possibly as a result of the psychological impact of the disease (prostate cancer) and its uncertain outcome.

    These aftereffects of prostate surgery do influence prostate orgasm, so men considering this procedure should be open and honest with their doctors about any potential side effects. Fortunately, recent advances in surgical methods have significantly decreased the risks associated with men’s sexual function.
