Hey sex fans,
I’m adding this new feature to my Q&A columns. Whenever possible, I will include in my response a link to a movie in my HOW TO VIDEO LIBRARY (see the VOD tab at the top of the page?) that will further educate or enrich the person who is asking the question.
Think of it as at HOMEWORK or further study on the topic at hand. I hope all of you will benefit from this terrific instructional and enriching resource. (Click on the images below for viewing information.)
I am very interested in learning more about prostate massage and milking techniques. Are you familiar with these things? Thank you.
I am very familiar with both prostate massage and the fetish commonly known as milking.
But let’s begin with prostate massage, because it is something every guy can practice and enjoy. I recommend all us men folk be prostate aware. You know I’m a big advocate of frequent prostate self-exam, right? And I figure while you’re down there rootin’ around in your butt-hole checking for abnormalities, hey spend a little more time and give yourself a nice massage why don’t ‘cha? Fingers work just fine for this, but an insertable vibrator is…well…out of this world. Prostate massage is a wonderful way to expand your self-pleasuring repertoire, especially for all you guys out there who only know how to yank on their dick for joy. And ladies, prostate massage is a great way to play with your male partners. Perhaps if you signal to your guy that a little butt play can be fun, more straight guys will be less ass-phobic and the world will be a much better place, don’t cha know.
You can feel your prostate gland by inserting a finger a couple of inches or so into your bum. If you are the least bit aroused your prostate will feel like a smooth rounded flat lump about the size of a large almond. Just in back of and up from your prostate is a smaller triangular wedge shaped nodule that is the bottom portion of your somewhat larger seminal vesicles. This, by the way, is where most of your jizz is produced and stored. Underneath the seminal vesicles are the ampullae, which are tiny reservoirs for your sperm that will mix with all the other fluids produced by the vesicles and your prostate when you cum.
As you become aroused, ejaculatory fluid and sperm accumulate in these glands backing up behind valves in the ejaculatory ducts. When the fluid pressure reaches a high enough threshold, the valves open and the urethral bulb fills, triggering the muscular contractions of your ejaculation. This empties the glands and you’ve just shot your wad.
Naturally, if one abstains from ejaculating for a while and prolongs his arousal stage, say like through edging, more fluids will build up, making for a larger load and a more explosive orgasm.
So with that little anatomy lesson behind us, so to speak, we can get back to prostate massage. Simply insert your well-lubricated middle finger or middle finger and index finger into your butt hole and apply a little pressure. Slowly massage your prostate. Doesn’t that feel yummy? Some men can cum by prostate massage alone. Hell, you may find that you don’t even need a stiff dick to enjoy an orgasm and/or an ejaculation.
Now to kink things up a bit we introduce the fetish called milking. This is mostly a partnered — dom/sub, bondage/discipline — sort of deal. But a guy can certainly do it on his own if he’d like. Basically, the object here is to drain and collect the spunk produced. How it’s collected? Well that’s is up for grabs. Ya see there are a zillion variations on the milking theme. Some practitioners deny the donor the pleasure of an orgasm while collecting his jizz. Ice packs are placed on a guy’s cock and balls before milking begins. The spooge will flow through prostate massage and masturbation, but there won’t be much feeling for the donor.
Another interesting twist on milking is to completely restrain and blindfold the donor. This may include a little (or a lot) of cock and ball torture (CBT) during the milking sessions. There are even milking machines available, not unlike the contraptions that milk a mother’s breast, for the medical fetishists among us.
There are sadists who revel in denying the donor any sexual release except for his milking sessions. This is where a male chastity belt will come in mighty handy. A guy will still need to have his balls drained, so to speak, every few weeks in order to avoid him losing his joy juice in a wet dream or when he takes a piss. But with regular prostate milkings, a dude can be deprived of orgasmic release for a long time with no harmful effects.
Those going for volume rather than frequency practice what is known as cum control, which takes edging to a whole new level. Their objective is to go as long as possible without triggering an orgasm or a wet dream. Since the pressure of fluid buildup increases with each arousal, the urgency to have an ejaculation also increases. To deny himself the release is, for some, exquisitely painful.
If you’re still looking for more information on all of this, search them interweb tubes for key words like: Semen Worship / Orgasm Control / Cum Control / Milking / Edging / Chastity and Cock and Ball Torture.
How come men are seen as ‘studs’ and women as ‘sluts’ for doing the same things.
Basically darling, that’s because our culture is pretty fucked up — sexually, and in so many other was too.
Despite the progress we’ve made over the last 50 years to liberate ourselves from suffocating sex-role stereotyping and culturally induced gender expectations, we are nowhere near being free and clear of all that crap.
Changing societal attitudes about sex begins with each one of us carving out our own healthy place to celebrate our sexuality. Carving out that place means we don’t tolerate this or any other kind of double standard bullshit from those around us. It’s tough standing against the tide of sexual bigotry, but it will make you strong and proud. Banding together with other like-minded people for support and encouragement is also important.
The biggest danger, of course, is that young, sexually progressive women will, in time, cave to the pressure to conform. They will begin to internalize the madonna/whore dichotomy that has plagued all of us for millennia and pass it on to yet another generation of vulnerable women. The risk is always there; so vigilance is the only response.
And all you guys out there who think that this double standard is the way things oughta be. Think again! You are not a stud if you cheapen your sexual partners by degrading them; you’re just an asshole.

I’ve been so disturbed about the increasing number of recalled Chinese made products lately — dog food, toothpaste, children’s toys and the like — that I was horrified to discover that most of my sex toys are made in China. I suppose this is a dumb time to ask, but how safe are sex toys?
That is a real good question, Brianna. Ya know there was a time when I thought that the greatest hazard to the ardent sex toy consumer was simply all the poorly designed and cheaply manufactured crap that floods the marketplace. But in light of the alarming news of recent months about the safety risks of many products coming from China, I think there is room for concern about the safety of Chinese made sex toys.
I hasten to add that not all Chinese imports are dangerous. Nor are all products grown or manufactured in the US safe. But there is a long history of unscrupulous Western companies exploiting the Chinese labor force. This greed and abuse leads to a dangerous mix that often has dire consequences.
Obviously there is no government regulatory agency out there with a mandate to protect us from unsafe or unhealthful sex toys. Of course, one can make the case that even when there is a government regulatory agency with a mandate to protect us, and our pets, from unsafe, tainted or unhealthy food, drugs and other consumables they’re not doing a particularly good job.
The sex toy industry does an equally piss-poor job of regulating itself. No surprise there, I suppose. Profit motives seem to trump all other considerations. And since there is virtually no scientific data on sex toy safety the responsibility for keeping ourselves safe falls to us, the consumer. It’s up to us to positively impact the market. We can begin by taking some responsibility for what we consume. We can go GREEN with our sex toys, so to speak. We could patronize only the retailers that provide fair and balanced product reviews. We could refrain from buying on impulse or being swayed by slick smutty packaging. We could avoid excess packaging that only winds up in a landfill.
We could avoid doing business with sex toy retailers who continue to peddle products with by unsubstantiated claims. Herbal supplements that promise to grow a guy’s dick bigger or enhance his sexual performance. Or those patches, pills and lubricating oils that are supposed to boost a chick’s desire. It’s not like there aren’t good products out there, it’s just that we have to do our research before we buy. Check out some of the great Product Review Sites too — Dr Dick’s Sex Toy Reviews, Jane’s Guide or Hey Epiphora.
We could protect ourselves by insisting our toys be manufactured by people who have access to sex information, education and contraception for themselves. If our purchases support repressive governments who abuse their people we are complicit in the repression. Imagine our dildos, vibrators and fetish gear being manufactured by people who will never be able to enjoy a happy, healthy integrated sex life because of gender inequity or poverty. That sucks, huh?
We can also protect ourselves by patronizing responsible and ethical sex toy retailers. These include my very own Dr Dick’s Stockroom, Good Vibrations, Babeland and Eden Fantasys. These retailers have excellent customer service departments and well as educational components to outreach. They’re also terrific resources for all your sex toy related questions.
There have been a lot of unsubstantiated claims made of late that there is a potential danger in all sex toys. Some insist that most sex toys contain cancer-causing ingredients. While I won’t go that far, there are some things to be concerned about. For example, many soft rubber toys are made using phthalates, which have been linked to environmental and human health issues. Phthalates (pronounced “thall-eights”) are a chemical compound used to soften hard plastics into soft rubbery and jelly-like toys. I also recommend that you avoid toys with artificial scent and dyes. They’ve been known to trigger allergic reactions in some people.
I believe that if you buy quality you are more likely to get quality. Consider hypoallergenic materials, such as silicone, wood, glass and aluminum. They are more expensive, but worth it. Then again, you could always use a condom on any insertable, or less expensive toy of questionable material. The problem with this is, condoms are not biodegradable and they’re expensive. By the time you factor in the cost of condoms for every toy use, you’ll actually be spending more per diddle than if you bought quality from the get-go.
Remember the more information you have, the wiser a consumer you will be.
Good luck ya’ll
