Aneros Reports: Prostate Massage Offers Several Health Benefits

HOUSTON, TX—Sexual health and wellness products manufacturer Aneros asserts that sexual health is a major factor in total health and well-being and a segment that is often overlooked by the medical industry—and they are quoting medical reports about the benefits of prostate massage to raise awareness and encourage all men (and couples) to embrace the practice.

“A once taboo subject, prostate massage is gaining more acceptance among men as they discover its health and lifestyle benefits,” said Brent Aldon, director of sales and marketing for Aneros. “From inception, the Aneros mission is to improve the quality of life through education and our accompanying product line. If we can reach a wider population of men by presenting some of the studies and articles outlining the advantages of prostate massage, then we are accomplishing what we set out to do.”

As early as 2009, a study associated the use of prostate massage with a reduction in lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) and chronic prostatitis/chronic pelvic pain syndrome (CP/CPPS) complications. The study, conducted by Jillian L. Capodice, Brian A. Stone and Aaron E. Katz of the Department of Urology at Columbia University Medical Center, was featured in The Open Urology & Nephrology Journal in January 2009. The study was based on 154 men who used Aneros’ Pro-State prostate massagers over a two-year period. Ninety percent of the subjects suffered from such ailments as enlarged prostate, chronic pelvic pain syndrome, overactive bladder and other issues.

The study discussed traditional in-office prostate massage in alleviating LUTS symptoms in men with BPH (enlarged prostate) and CP/CPPS (chronic pelvic pain) and tested the benefits of an at-home-use prostate massage device in treating these conditions. The study’s results showed that the majority of men expressed “very good improvement to total alleviation" of their lower urinary tract symptoms, that included pelvic pain and enlarged prostate. Moreover, the study stated, “This device may have various advantages over traditional in-office prostate massage including the potential for increased frequency, which may in turn alleviate symptoms more rapidly, with less stigma or mental burden on the patient when using it in the privacy of the home.”

A more recent paper by independent researcher R.J. Levin, published last year by Wiley Periodicals in the United Kingdom, showed the effectiveness of Aneros prostate massagers in inducing orgasms in men and helping improve their sexual response. One individual interviewed by the researcher said he was suffering from prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate) when he decided to use an Aneros prostate massager to alleviate the symptoms.

The prostatitis symptoms resolved within 2 months of regular use, several times weekly combined with tadalafil. However, he found the powerful orgasms produced by the device highly addictive, imparting a residual sexual potential even after its use was discontinued. Levin wrote, “Our subject found that he could achieve intense orgasms by lying prone wearing a condom without the Aneros present, the condom and the pillows being sufficient stimuli to trigger a reflex orgasm without any direct mechanical stimulation… the ability to orgasm without the device has persisted for at least 12 months.”

Other benefits of prostate massage have been cited by Medical News Today’s Danielle Dresden who described the prevention of prostate fluid build-up, the improved effectiveness of antibiotics in treating prostatitis, the support of healthy prostate function, the reduction of pain and discomfort of a congested prostate and the overall enhancement of sexual activity.
