Self-Help Patrol: Taint Acupuncture
Nick Leftley

“Since the perineum is so close to the prostate, pressing on it would be a way of getting in that general vicinity without doing anal stimulation,” Wiesner says. Or to put it another way, it’s a sort of back door to the prostate, without having to go through the actual back door.

Gay men who aren’t into anal sex tend to be well aware of this — grinding your taint against a partners’s knee while he jacks you off does a good job of stimulating the prostate, without the bother of sticking things into holes.

For that matter, some straight guys figure out that straddling the arm of a sofa (or some similar object) while masturbating can also enhance the orgasm, because your own body weight pressing against the perineum puts indirect pressure on the prostate.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
