How to Choose a Prostate Massager: Get it Right the First Time

Introduction: How to Choose a Prostate Massager

Prostate massage is the act of stimulating your prostate gland, which has been called by some “the male G-spot” or alternatively, “the P-spot” because of the extremely intense orgasms that its stimulation can produce. While it is possible to stimulate one’s prostate digitally (with a finger,) it can be difficult or awkward to do so by oneself. To overcome this hurdle to sexual bliss, a prostate massager is often employed.

You might be thinking, “Great! Sign me up!” Hold on just a second! Before you run out and buy a prostate massager at your local adult sex shop, take a moment to read this article on selecting the best tool for the job; that is, how to choose a prostate massager! We’ll cover the basics: materials, size, shape and whether to choose a vibrating or non-vibrating model.

Materials

Prostate massagers most often are made of either plastic, glass, metal or silicone. There are pros and cons to each material. Choose wisely, my friend!

Plastic

Plastic is the cheapest, and therefore, most common finish that you will encounter. It’s a good starting point, as you can find a prostate massager made of plastic at any sex shop and at a relatively cheap price.

PROS:

  • Cheap
  • Widely available
  • Somewhat nonporous
  • Usually available with a vibrating option, if desired

CONS:

  • Some plastic toys might be made with unsafe plastics
  • Some users may not like the feeling of plastic
  • Some users may not like the aesthetic value of plastic

Silicone

Silicone prostate massagers are a relatively new finish available. Though not as expensive as glass or metal, these prostate massagers are often more expensive than plastic massagers. They are available at most sex shops.

PROS:

  • Fairly cheap
  • Widely available
  • Usually available with a vibrating option, if desired

CONS:

  • Very porous material
  • Some users may not like the feeling of silicone
  • Some users may not like the aesthetic value of silicone

Glass

Glass prostate massagers are most often made of borosilicate glass, which is nearly shatterproof. These will also be available at most sex shops, though you will pay a premium for these.

PROS:

  • Completely nonporous and can be sterilized
  • Can be heated and cooled to user’s preference
  • Some users may enjoy the smooth feeling of glass
  • Aesthetically beautiful

CONS:

  • Can be expensive
  • May not be as widely available as plastic or silicone prostate massagers
  • Vibrating option usually unavailable
  • Users must be careful not to drop glass massagers on hard surfaces

Metal

Metal prostate massagers are most often made of surgical grade stainless steel which, in addition to being shatterproof, is completely nonporous and can be sterilized. This material comes at an ultimate premium, however, and may be out of the budget of someone just testing the waters of prostate massage.

PROS:

  • Completely nonporous and can be sterilized
  • Can be heated and cooled to user’s preference
  • Some users may enjoy the smooth feeling of metal
  • Aesthetically beautiful

CONS:

  • Expensive
  • May not be as widely available as plastic, silicone or glass massagers
  • Vibrating option usually unavailable

Size

Now that you have a material in mind, it’s time to think about size. Though you may be thinking that the old adage “bigger is better” applies in all cases, this is definitely not true when choosing a prostate massager!

Picking a massager about the girth of one’s thumb and about double its length will suit most first time users. A size of 1” wide and 6” long is the maximum recommended for beginners.

Shape

If you look online at pictures of massagers, you’ll notice that most are slightly curved; this is because the prostate gland is located about 3-4” in the anus and slightly toward the anterior (front) of the body.

It is recommended that first time users choose a prostate massager with a bend of around 45 degrees in order to get the most out of your experience. (Note: this is not a hard and fast rule. Great results can be achieved with a straight massager, such as the Icicles No. 2)

Vibration

While not all prostate massagers come with this option, it is recommended that first time users purchase a vibrating model, as it can be quite pleasurable. If the prostate massager of your choice is non-vibrating, it is recommended that one purchase a small vibrating egg (which are widely available for a cost of under $5) and put it up against the prostate massager, once inserted, in order to see if you enjoy the sensation.

Conclusion

While the task of choosing the right prostate massager can, at first, seem a daunting task, it really isn’t all that difficult. Pay attention to the information included in this article and get shopping – ground-shaking orgasms are waiting!
