Prostate Stimulation: Hitting the P-Spot
For many prostate owners, the backdoor has had a “do not enter” sign of intimidation on it for far too long. The notion of motion in your posterior carries with it a lot of misunderstandings and taboos. However, the anus contains what many have referred to as the Arc of the Cumenant (though this one will melt your face with pleasure). It is professionally known as the prostate and commonly referred to as the p-spot. This little walnut-shaped organ is the key to unlocking unbelievable, full-body orgasms through prostate stimulation.
Contrary to popular tops, effective prostate stimulation isn’t just a walk in the anus. While internal massage is ideal, there are also ways for exploring this pleasure zone without anal penetration. As many p-spot owners still hold outdated taboos regarding anal sex, topical stimulation can be a great segue into the endless pleasure journeys of anal play.
To effectively rub this genie lamp of genial lovin’, we must first be able to locate it within the cave of wonders which, while easy to find, requires some instruction.
How to Find the Prostate
The prostate is a walnut-size gland that’s nestled between the bladder and the penis, just in front of the rectum. The job of this little pleasure pod is to secrete nourishing fluids that protect sperm and squeeze it through the urethra during ejaculation. This close association with your semen regulator is why stimulating the p-spot causes a similar euphoric response to cumming, just with a much more prolonged and constant feeling.
How to stimulate the prostate
In a less sexy way (or more sexy way, if you’re into that – we don’t judge) the urethra also flows through the center of the prostate, which means that the p-spot also affects urinary function and is part of why prostate owners get that little glimmer of relief after unleashing the golden waterfall after a long car ride.
To fully reach an orgasmic prostate experience, aim more for the pelvis (approximately where the bladder is), and try to use more of a rotating motion with the hips rather than a prodding thrust. This will massage the p-spot instead of poke it, and create a more pleasurable feeling that is also referred to as milking. When choosing an anal sex toy, it is best to pick one that is slightly curved to really pinpoint the p-spot.
Why Does Prostate Stimulation Feel Good?
As we’ve explored above, when your p-spot is stimulated, you’re essentially tickling your semen factory, and any labor union will tell you that factories produce better overall when there are extra incentives for performance. By milking the p-spot, you are creating multiple, prolonged bursts of pleasure similar to what you experience during ejaculation. Additionally, it is attached to the vagus nerve (aka the pleasure command center) which causes any pressure, simulation, or movement around the rim of the anus to have a ripple effect of titillation to twist through the body. It also creates a similar reaction to nipple and ear play. Long story short, the booty is a playground of pleasure!
Are There Any Risks in Exploring Butt Play?
Any sexual adventures should require care and communication with your partner to check in on how and what they are experiencing, and butt play is no different. The anus cannot self-lubricate, so it is important to use lots of lube during anal play and to frequently check in with the bottom to make sure they are not experiencing any pain. Trying to power through anal stimulation without proper lubrication can result in anal fissures or tearing that can cause days of discomfort. It is always important to lube up first using your fingers or a lube applicator and then frequently add lube as needed to ensure a pleasurable and pain-free experience.

What Glass Toys Should I Use for Prostate Stimulation?
The real question is: What glass toys should I NOT use for butt play? The amazing thing about glass toys is that they come in such a wide (or short, or thick, or thin, or bumpy, or smooth) variety that there are endless ways to take a journey through your wild south.
To begin, when selecting a glass toy (or any toy) for anal play, always be sure to pick one with a tapered base like the Diamond Ice Artisanal Butt Plug. The hole is hungry, and your sphincter muscle is designed to keep things from falling out of you. That means using any toys without a tapered base for anal penetration runs the risk of getting stuck in your anal cavity – resulting in a trip to the doctor (and not the sexy kind). A tapered base or a toy with a handle like the Rainbow Spiral G-Spot Dildo will prevent your toys from getting gobbled up by the glutes.
The first toy to look into is the bulbous tip toys. Toys like Mr. Swirly Double-Ended Dildo or the Pure Indulgence provide a bulbous tip and an exaggerated curve to pinpoint the p-spot for properly pleasurable prostate stimulation. These curved and bulbed options come in different textures and sizes for all booty palates. Go sleek and smooth with options like our Honey Dipper Anal Slider for a sleek and smooth trip to the p-spot, or go for a multi-point stimulation with our 10” Double Ended w/ Anal Beads with textures to tantalize your rim.
If you are looking for less friction and more fullness, then a glass butt plug is the right choice for you. Focusing more on constant pressure rather than thrusting friction, butt plugs are good for prolonged, hands-free invigoration that can either provide prostate stimulation during intercourse with a partner or be worn discreetly during the day for more sociable simulation. Gläs offers a wide range of plugs including our 7.25” Glass Beaded Plug for deeper anal penetration, and both our Over Easy Plug and Amethyst Rain Plug for a wider gaping experience.
For those who are really more here for the rim job, Gläs has the textures for you! The many textures of Gläs make rimming experiences an endless journey of ecstasy with multiple options to polish your wagon wheel. Our Candy Land Juicer is an excellent option for couples play as it features multiple textures along the shaft for sphincter stimuli as well as a crank handle for you or your partner to twirl and whirl you to Cumdrop Mountain. If you are looking for more of a thrusting motion, the Pacifier Plug is ideal for your lower lips to suckle on with bumpy stimuli while giving your partner a porthole view to the gratification grotto.
Even with all of these options, Gläs toys can be further enhanced by using temperature play to warm or cool your toy, as well as stimulating lubricants for even more variety. The opportunities for prostate stimulation and Gläs are endless.
