Why do you need a prostate?

The Prostate Gland

What Is A Prostate Gland?

Your prostate is a gland, about the size of a walnut, located right between your penis and your bladder. It is right in front of your rectum. Running through the prostate is the urethra, from your bladder to the penis. This allows urine to flow out of the body.

Your prostate secretes a fluid which both protects as well as nourishes sperm. When you ejaculate, the prostate pushes this fluid into the urethra and it is expelled as semen with the sperm.

What 10 Functions Does The Prostrate Perform?

When you are making decisions on treating or caring for your prostate you should consider the importance of the prostate. Most people don’t realize the functions that your prostate performs. So here we go:

Prostate Function #1 – It Is A Gland

One third of the semen produced by the male body comes from the prostate. This is the primary function of the prostate. The alkaline secretion of the prostate helps the sperm to survive in the acidic environment of the vagina.

Prostate Function #2 Male Fluid Mixer

The prostate gland is a master fluid mixer. Sperm made in the testicles is transported by the seminal vesicles.  The testicles fluids are mixed with the prostate’s fluids. These fluids surge into the urethra during ejaculation.

Then there is PSA or prostate specific antigen. PSA enables sperm to swim into the uterus. PSA also helps release sperm to impregnate the egg.

Prostate Function #3 The Prostate Is a Muscle

Your prostate acts as a pump to force the semen into the vagina.

Prostate Function #4 Pleasure
