Before we delve into the how’s, I think it is best to look into the whys. For this we need to understand what the prostate is and how it functions. Taken from Wikipedia “The prostate (from Greek - prostates, literally "one who stands before", "protector", "guardian”) is a compound tubuloalveolarexocrine gland of the male reproductive system in most mammals. The function of the prostate is to store and secrete a slightly alkaline fluid, milky or white in appearance, that usually constitutes 20-30% of the volume of the semen along with spermatozoa and seminal vesicle fluid. The alkalinity of semen helps neutralize the acidity of the vaginal tract, prolonging the lifespan of sperm. The alkalinization of semen is primarily accomplished through secretion from the seminal vesicles. The prostatic fluid is expelled in the first ejaculate fractions, together with most of the spermatozoa. In comparison with the few spermatozoa expelled together with mainly seminal vesicular fluid, those expelled in prostatic fluid have better motility, longer survival and better protection of the genetic material (DNA). The prostate also contains some smooth muscles that help expel semen during ejaculation.”
So, pretty much its function is to provide a base for the sperm to survive in as it makes it way out of the penis. Most will recognize this fluid as pre-come, the clear fluid that comes out during an excited state. One reason to massage the prostate is to keep this fluid fresh. If it sits in the prostate it can become stagnate. Now, regular ejaculation will also help to refresh the supply as well, but by massaging the prostate we are sure to get all the bad stuff out. Think of the Prostate like a sponge, during regular orgasm you are just applying a small amount of pressure. During prostate massage you are wringing the sponge fully.
