Prostate Cradle — A Revolution in Men’s Health and Prostate Massage
November 12, 2016
So, You’ve Seen It All?
Just when you thought you’ve seen everything there is about prostate massage, the American made external prostate massager has been lingering as a wallflower at the frat party of internal massagers. I easily have two dozen internal massagers in my collection. That’s not including the ones I threw away for being non-body-safe or cheaply made. The Prostate Cradle, by Enviromax, is a game changer for men’s health.
TL;DR — My YouTube video is at the bottom of this post.
What Is This Thing?
A few months ago, I reached out to Enviromax, because I was a complete skeptic of their product. Having been an internal massage guy for 15 years, I saw little, if any benefit to something that remains on the outside. My understanding of human anatomy, though a lay understanding, told me that there was no way to accurately push on my prostate without something inside me. Even if there was something applying pressure to my anus or perineum, it would still fall short of spectacular. Well, I was wrong. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
The proprietor of Enviromax is a board certified massage therapist who, over 20 years ago, suffered from an inflamed prostate. His Doc told him to engage in prostate massage. At that time, there was one option — internal massage. Either a man had to use a dedicated massager, like something from the Aneros line (which didn’t exist yet), go to a physical therapist who would engage the prostate (hard to find, uncomfortable, and expensive), or ask his partner to help. Regardless of those choices, most men would just as well take a pill and hope for the best. Putting something in the anus of a man was (and still is to some degree) a taboo that “real men” just don’t do. The Prostate Cradle eliminates that issue completely.
Knowing the multiple steps one must endure to engage the prostate internally, Enviromax worked with doctors and therapists to design an external tool, the Prostate Cradle. The Prostate Cradle is an easy-to-use, no mess, external massager that engages the prostate through direct pressure to the anus. After multiple prototypes and refinement, the Alaskan company designed a one-of-a-kind, high-grade, body-safe silicone massager.
Since that first batch, Enviromax developed several variations of the design. You’ll see in the picture at the top of this post, there are holes drilled throughout the Prostate Cradle. These holes allow a slight amount of give, or, your can place a vibrating bullet inside one (or more) of the holes. This will present a slight rumble of vibration that can enhance your experience. Of the three samples Enviromax sent me, my favorite is the Prostate Jewel. Essentially, it’s the Prostate Cradle without the holes drilled into it. There is a fourth product they sent me, called the Joy Pillow. This is a lower cost option, but offers a similar push into the P-spot. I’ll explain more about that in my video at the bottom of this post.
Really, that’s it. The only tricky part is placement. However, Enviromax sends an instruction sheet (with pictures) that shows you how to apply the product to reach maximum efficiency. There are two “mountains” or peaks on the cradle, and the “valley” is where your testicles will lie. Most men will gain the best experience from using the peak that has, what looks like, a crevice going down the middle. A more experienced user might desire more direct pressure. In that case, using the single peak side will be more beneficial.
The Prostate Cradle is designed to be used through light clothing. Something like jeans would be a bit too much. But, if you’re at home, sweat pants, boxer shorts, pajama pants (you get the picture) would be ideal. You can use it directly on your skin, but then you have to clean it after use.
Place the peak of the cradle that you want to use directly on your anus. It will not penetrate you. Place your testes in the valley of the Prostate Cradle. The other peak will sit under the anterior (front) part of your scrotum, along the urethra of the penis.
Sitting on a cushioned chair is recommended for beginners. When you work your way up, feel free to sit on the floor with it, on a harder chair, or any firmer surface.
Limit your time with the Prostate Cradle to about 10 to 15 minutes the first few times. You can use it longer if you want, but this is a good starting point. Your frequency of use is limited to your desires and current prostate condition(s). Someone with an inflamed prostate might want to use it once every few days. This will allow your prostate some time to get used to the Cradle. If you have a healthy prostate, feel free to use it daily.
That said, Hippocrates had quite a lot to say about massage and health. Click here to read about that. I’m not here to argue the benefits of massage over non-massage, but if you’ve ever had a massage, you know how good it can make you feel. Our reliance on Western medicine has completely shunned the wisdom we’ve known for thousands of years. I’m not asking you to lean one way or another. I am asking you to embrace both sides of treatment.
Prostate massage does help clean out the gland in order to prevent the buildup of heavy metals, stagnant prostatic fluids, and increase blood flow to the organ.
Will prostate massage help prevent prostate cancer? I don’t know. I find a lot of “studies show” and “statistics show” articles about it, but nothing ever links to strong empirical evidence. I would say at this point, it is anecdotal at best. One in seven men will develop prostate cancer if they live long enough. That is a fact.
What makes sense to me, using my layman’s common sense, is this: If I massage my prostate semi-regularly, I will flush toxins from the organ and increase healthy blood flow. That, in concert with exercise, a healthy diet, and regular ejaculation will help decrease the risks of developing mutant/cancerous cells.
All that aside, if that’s not a good enough reason to hop on the P-spot train, maybe you’re more interested in prostate orgasms and the intense sexual pleasure derived from this type of massage.
The Sexual Side of Things
We are sexual beings. The only reason you exist today is because someone had sex. Even if you’re a product of artificial insemination, like me, two people, somewhere back in your genetic family tree had sex. It is the most important facet to the survival of a species, and we, as humans, are hardwired to enjoy it.
That said, we as humans have, unfortunately, created a sex-shaming culture. Here, just read about hysteria. All women really wanted were orgasms. But no, we cut out their organs, threw them into asylums, and called them crazy. When we decided to treat it humanely, what was the treatment? — fingers and vibrators…an orgasm.
Jump forward to modern times, and men are facing a similar issue with prostate massage. Gay shaming and gay hate, although it has decreased significantly in the western world, is still a real problem. Without getting into too much about the acceptance of all humanity (I wrote about it here), penetrating the anus of man has long been associated with homosexuality. I have also written (here) about overcoming the myths of prostate massage.
The Prostate Cradle is a safe gateway (and permanent tool) for men to experience prostate massage externally. Nothing goes inside the anus. It does not look like a typical sexual health product. It is, socially and medically, safe. If you have any reservations about putting something inside you, this will circumvent those concerns completely.
Prostate massage, just by the nature of massaging something, will increase blood flow to that area of your body. Frequent massage will inevitably improve the vascular health of an area. By increasing blood flow to your prostate, you will increase the sexual energy and sexual health that is latent in your body. Especially for men in their 30s and higher, the sexual libido is a lot lower than those high school and college days.
The results, from my personal experience with prostate massage, are increased erection strength, stronger ejaculations, and higher libido.
The Prostate Cradle has not yet given me a prostate orgasm. I have achieved those from internal massagers, but not yet this one. What I do glean from the Prostate Cradle is an electric feeling that radiates from my sexual center throughout my abdomen and chest. After about five minutes of sitting on the cradle, this gentle push on the prostate gives me an incredibly warm and happy sensation. It just puts me in a good mood. Perhaps I should sit on it while I’m driving…you know, to reduce road rage and such. 😉
After talking with the CEO of Enviromax, he told me it takes time to develop the ability to achieve prostate orgasm through the Cradle.
I would venture to say that prostate orgasms are not just physical, but also metaphysical. You can’t just place a massager there at the right place. You also have to be in the right frame of mind and open to your sexual energy. Does it sound new-age-hippie-ish? Yes. But, if you can open your mind for a moment and try something new, there is a world of pleasure waiting for you on the other side.
The Prostate Cradle is not your typical massager. If you’re going into this with expectations, you are doing yourself an injustice. The best thing you can do is experience it. It’s a simple design (in theory), but it was decades in the making and perfecting. Enviromax sells these in different sizes. Most people are good with size large. However, if you are unsure what you want or need, reach out to the company. It’s a small Alaska-based company with incredible customer support. The CEO and I have talked back and forth about two dozen times. We went from discussing the product itself to discussing abstract and metaphysical concepts. I realize most people won’t go that deep into conversation with a Proprietor, but I want to illustrate how “human” this company is.
