Current medical literature does not describe precisely the activation and mechanisms of prostate orgasms. This brief review describes what we know about the anatomy and physiology of the prostate and its involvement in reproduction and especially its stimulation for sexual recreation. It is illustrated with a highly relevant case history. Clin. Anat. 31:81–85, 2018. © 2017 Wiley Periodicals, Inc.

Sexual aspects of two related HCP-roles in the period between a diagnosis of prostate cancer (PC) and the start of treatment are addressed, in the belief that better sexual function before starting treatment is more likely to lead to better post-treatment outcomes.

Sexual minority men and the experience of undergoing treatment for prostate cancer: An integrative review.

Psychosocial supportive care needs to address GBQ men's sexual, emotional and social needs and future psycho-oncologic trials are needed, especially on GBQ-specific peer-support interventions.

Clinical use and implications of sexual devices and sexually explicit media

In this Review, Dewitte and Reisman discuss the clinical use of sex toys and sexual devices, as well as sexually explicit media, across a variety of indications to expand individual and partnered sexuality and to treat sexual difficulties.

Exercise-Induced Orgasm and Its Association with Sleep Orgasms and Orgasms During Partnered Sex: Findings From a U.S. Probability Survey.

Lifetime EIO experience was associated with lifetime sleep orgasms but not with event-level orgasm during partnered sex, and implications related to understanding orgasm and recommendations for clinicians and sex educators are discussed.

Cancer care professionals should pay more attention to the sexual aspects of cancer in men with a non-mainstream sexual orientation

This article will address relevant aspects of sexual lifestyle, relationships and sexual behavior of MSM and the typical areas where cancer treatment tends to damage, and some aspects of optimal care in MSM with cancer.

Top, bottom or vers? Creating a more equitable health system for sexual and gender minority patients with prostate cancer

Understanding the effects of prostate cancer therapies on sexual health outcomes in sexual and gender minority patients is imperative in order to enable personalized clinical decision-making and to create a more equitable health system.

Biopsicosociología del orgasmo en el varón y en la hembra: fundamentos y diferencias

La respuesta sexual se encuentra mediada por factores anatomo-hormono-neuro-vasculoendoteliales, y el orgasmo se define como un conjunto of sensaciones corporales sumamente placenteras y de excitación intensa, that libera tensiones and that produce satisfacción.



Non-genital orgasms

A concept of generalized neurological orgasmic processes involving recruitment, peak excitement and resolution is presented, of which genital orgasm is considered to be a special case.

Orgasmic Dysfunction after Radical Prostatectomy

Physicians should be aware of the prevalence of ODs after RP, in order to properly counsel all patients both preoperatively and immediately post-RP about the potential occurrence of bothersome and distressful changes in their overall sexual function.

Orgasm after radical prostatectomy.

Radical prostatectomy may have serious consequences on libido and erectile function but sometimes other important factors, such as the absence of prostate and seminal vesicle contractions, the loss of ejaculation and involuntary loss of urine, may also compromise the orgasm.

Recreation and procreation: A critical view of sex in the human female

This review deals critically with many aspects of the functional genital anatomy of the human female in relation to inducing sexual arousal and its relevance to procreation and recreation. Various

Pelvic fasciae in urology.

The findings of the study were that the 'capsule' of the prostate does not exist and the fibromuscular band surrounding the prostate forms an integral part of the gland.

Medical hypothesis: loss of the endocrine function of the prostate is important to the pathophysiology of postprostatectomy erectile dysfunction.

Evidence is reviewed that the prostate is an endocrine gland with contributions to local and systemic concentrations of 5α-dihydrotestosterone (5α-DHT), a potent androgen shown to be critical to penile physiology, and mechanisms whereby the loss of 5 α-D HT interferes with postoperative recovery of erectile function.

Female prostate: a review about the biological repercussions of this gland in humans and rodents

It is necessary to frequently monitor the female prostate in order to prevent prostatic disorders that can endanger the quality of life of women and long-term exposure to synthetic hormones, which interferes with women's hormonal balance.

Anatomy of the pelvic plexus and innervation of the prostate gland

Examination of the anatomy of the pelvic (inferior hypogastric) plexus in six male cadavers shows the presence of ganglia within the prostate gland that contained both tyrosine hydroxylase positive and negative neuronal cell bodies, which may be useful in nerve‐sparing surgical procedures and in discussions of the functional implications of perturbations of prostate innervation.

The Prostatic Capsule: Does It Exist? Its Importance in the Staging and Treatment of Prostatic Carcinoma

It is concluded that the prostate does not have a true capsule, but only an outer fibromuscular band, which is an inseparable component of the prostatic stroma.
