What is the Prostate?
The prostate is large walnut sized gland found in a male’s reproductive system. The function of the prostate is to secrete a slightly alkaline fluid, milky in appearance that usually creates roughly 30% of the volume of the male semen.
Alongside spermatozoa the prostatic fluid is expelled when you first ejaculate and because of the prostate fluid the sperm will have better mobility, prolonged life and much better protection of the genetic composition. In when comparison to the little spermatozoa that is expelled with seminal vesicular fluid which happens after.
Just men have a prostate. It is ordinary for it to develop and grow larger as men age. Now and again this can bring about issues, for example, trouble urinating. These issues are normal in men of a more mature age and not generally manifestations or indications of growth. Males over the age of 50 years are encouraged to have a prostate examination at least once a year.

Further we will demonstrate how to safely stimulate the prostate with both prostate toys and which prostate toys are considered the best, as well as give you information on how to have powerful prostate orgasms which are the best kind of orgasms a male can have.
Where Is My Prostate & What Is It For?
The prostate is often thought of as an essential part of the male body, but not everyone can identify why that is the case, nor can they identify the purpose and function of the prostate correctly. Below you'll find a diagram of where the prostate is in the body.
The prostate surrounds the urethra just under the bladder and can be felt from the inside of the rectum canal, which means it can be felt in a rectal exam. The prostate organ can be found at the root of the urethra, the tube that allows urine from the body. It is a piece of the exocrine immune system. This system secretes liquids outside the body. The prostate secretes a smooth substance that makes up around 20 to 30 percent of semen. It likewise has muscles that allow the semen to discharge that and is generally responsible for intense orgasms. The prostate is located in the anal cavity, up and towards the front.
Most people can reach it with the length of a finger, though some people do need a bit of extra length in order to reach it. It is in almost the same general vicinity as the g-spot for women. Insert a finger, make a come hither motion by bending and stroking the finger towards you back and forth and you'll be touching the prostate. If you can feel a small firm walnut sized shape, then you are hitting the prostate. It is most effective to hit the prostate with a finger for self-examination (more on that later) but it can also be reached by a variety of prostate toys which can be used to either stimulate the prostate during sex, or for solo play and to invigorated and engorge the prostate thereby promoting a healthy prostate that will flush away toxins.
The prostate is a very important muscle to the sexual organs and sits at the very base of the shaft internally. Next time you have an erection, if you feel the base of the shaft which shits against the pelvic region, you will feel that the erection actually goes into the body and there is a considerable amount of the shaft which sits on the inside. Indeed, for most men the removal of the prostate means that there is a gap at the base of the shaft which means that the shaft no longer has something to rest on and you can lose several inches of the shaft with the removal of the prostate. Prostate removal surgery is considered routine, but due to the location, removal of the prostate can cause damage to the delicate nerve endings surrounding the male genitals and can lead to further complications other than a reduced penis length which includes, erectile dysfunction and inability to orgasm and/or ejaculate. This is not meant to scare you, and many people after removal of an unhealthy prostate can lead normal, active and satisfactory lives. However, as with all surgeries there are risks involved and in the long run it is most often more beneficial to remove the prostate than to endure further risks.
The above is a video by Dr Nader Awad who is a graduate of the University of NSW. He is a member of the Royal Australiasian College of Surgeons in Urology and has extensive positions in the field. Some of these positions include being the head of the Department of Urology in Port Macquarie, a member of the New South Wales Oncology group with the Cancer Institute of NSW, and an instructor and skills trainer for the Royal Australiasian College of Surgeons, and that's only to name a few. Dr Nader specialises in Urological cancer and he has created this video which demonstrates the function, location of the prostate gland and what BPH is.
What Does A Healthy & Unhealthy Prostate Look Like?
In the above image you can see the visual representation of both a healthy and enlarged prostate. The enlarged prostate places pressure on the bladder and can cause all sorts of bladder problems which will primarily be discussed on a different page. Essentially the prostate places both pressure on the bladder and the surrounding urethral tubes. With pressure on these tubes it can severely disrupt the flow of urine and can cause urination to come out in drips and drabs and make the act of urination to be quite painful. Enlarged prostates, aside from this disruption to daily routine are considered to be normal and action is only taken if it becomes painful, or severely disruptive to the daily routine. For the most part in can be treated with minor medications, and various minor non-invasive surgeries. For severe and extreme cases, there are invasive surgery options but these are only for extreme cases.
I owe my future to my Doctor and his team of professionals. I look forward to a life after Cancer and found this site helpful dealing with some of my post-op issues.
Men need to hear our stories as it may save their lives! Thanks for, helping me find solutions!
My wife and I are both so grateful for the tremendous information and recommendation!
As I sit at home recuperating from surgery I just felt a need to reach out to you to thank you for the great information.
In approximately 14 hours 32 minutes and 42 seconds I will attend the surgeon's office to have my penile catheter removed. I cannot wait! It's been one week since I had surgery and now I'm confined, restricted and almost imprisoned by this unpleasant, unattractive tube and (urine) bag attached to my leg. I hope it doesn't leak or break. It has really been the most discomforting and restrictive period of my life. To be able to urinate at will and control my penis is wishful thinking. Thanks for the good reading and wish I would have taken more attention to these things before.
It has been nearly two weeks since I had my SMART prostatectomy! Every day since the surgery my outlook has soared. I feel humbled and privileged to have been given a second chance and reading this site has helped me with possible alternatives if things do not go back to normal.
I learned in November 2012 following a high blood PSA value and prostate biopsy, that I had prostate cancer. It had a Gleason 7+ value, which placed it in the problem category needing a rapid care. Now four years on my male vigor has still not returned and I use methods described on this site to ensure that my marriage remains intimate.
