If you’re a straight man, the idea of putting something in your butt for pleasure is probably unappealing and kind of terrifying. (It's the same for women too, but our pain threshold kicks yours into oblivion; we have mastered the art of "taking it".) But your fascination with our butts notwithstanding, your butts are pretty interesting too.
Did you know that one third of your penis is inside your body? You are complex beyond that appendage. According to a new study by Swedish sex toy company LELO, prostate massage can increase your orgasms by 33%. Men reported thicker erections with prostate stimulation and 80% of women said they would be down to perform a prostate massage on their man.
The prostate is located about 2-3 inches inside the male anal passage and when touched in just the right way can be intensely great for you. It's scary to think of anything going in instead of out of your butt, but for those of you who are willing and adventurous enough to try it, you could be in for a wild new experience.
There's the whole myth that "it's gay.” It's only "gay" if you think it is. I also understand that as a straight guy (or a top, whatever) you have this idea that you are the penetrator, not the penetrated and anything going inside of your body is a territorial breach.
However, for those of you who can rise above the myths to a place of prostate curiosity there are many new toys on the market that will help you get to that place of pleasure (without your girlfriend having to stick her fingers inside you.) The prostate is the male G-spot, after all. Trying it won't kill you. I swear. The prostate is a reproductive gland essential to the male orgasm cycle and it creates a fluid that protects sperm and assist ejaculation. Prostate stimulation has even been proven to alleviate erectile dysfunction and reuse pain from prostate swelling and soreness.
LELO just released a new line of prostate massager toys: The Loki, The Hugo and The Bruno. (Total "twink" and "bear" names, I know.) LELO's head of global marketing, Steven Thomson said, "[Prostate stimulation] is a topic many men shy away from but just like LELO helped remove the stigma of female pleasure products, LELO has now turned its attention to male prostate pleasure too.” All three of these new toys from LELO are suitable for beginners and the experienced in prostate massage and yet offer the best targeted and powerful stimulation on the market.
This toy is perfectly angled and shaped for a sophisticated and powerful prostate stimulation. It's waterproof, rechargeable and features 8 variable settings for more adventurous play.

This toy is expertly crafted to offer accuracy and intensity. LELO claims The Bruno is all about "artisanal pleasure" (take that as you will) with two motors, one in the curved tip and the second in the base. This is a luxury toy for those who may be a little more experienced when it comes to prostate massage and are completely comfortable with a hands-free experience.

I know that prostate massage seems like something only your doctor should do if he absolutely has to (for medical reasons), but you never know how good a little butt coaxing can feel. Have a shot of whiskey and just go for it. As I said before, what won't kill you only makes you stronger, especially when it comes to the prostate.
