Red face Leaky prostrate??

Hi

I don't even know if this is a "problem" or if it's just normal for all guys but I seem to "drip" a lot. I will be around a pretty woman, see something on TV (or online) or just be thinking about something and shortly afterwards, I will feel a build-up of fluid further back up my urethra near the prostrate area. If I pull "myself" out and milk it, some clear, sticky fluid will come out of the tip.

Earlier, I had a bowel movement and just the stools passing by my prostate gland was enough to make some of this fluid leak out of the tip of my penis. I was suprized (and a bit worried) when I noticed this because it just seemes unusual.

Is this some sort of infection or am I just being subconsiously arroused or something?. Do any of you other guys (or even gals) experience this sort of thing?. I did have a UTI about a year ago and I AM a very sexual person but I don't know what to think about this. Of course, when I actually do get even slightly arroused, the precum will ooze out.

Anyway, what is this?

Re: Leaky prostrate??

Sounds the same as me! Yeah, its perfectly normal. That's precum fluid you're seeing, not prostate fluid. Prostate fluid is usually milky whitish colored, not perfectly clear and sticky like precum is. Precum is produced by the Cowper's Glands, which are two pea-sized glands near the base of the penis, completely separate and downstream of the prostate. Some guys produce lots of precum at even the slightest hint of arousal, and some guys produce no precum at all, and some in between - all normal.

I'm a heavy precummer myself, and get it under the same circumstances you listed. I don't need to be hard at all to get precum to leak out, and practically just reading the word 'sex' gets me dripping

It's completely subconscious, and there's nothing you can do about it, so just enjoy it as a nice lube

Re: Leaky prostrate??

Re: fluids: focus is right about precum being the clear stuff that "drips" ... however, the fluid forced out in the course of a BM is NOT precum -- it's prostatic fluid, a component of semen. I do that all the time, figure most guys do. And apropos ... love to eat my own ...

Well, I can only speak from own experience, but I too get fluid that drips out of my penis during and after a bowel movement. And that fluid (at least with me) is definitely precum, not prostatic fluid. I've tasted my precum, and its the same fluid. I've also manually milked my prostate using a prostate masseger, and tasted that fluid, and it is definitely not the same.

The Cowper's Glands are subject to being squeezed slightly during a bowel movement, as they are in close proximity to the rectum, and they can also be squeezed if you bear down (i.e. force a bowel movement). People often think the fluid comes from the prostate because the prostate is located in close proximity to the rectum. While that may be the case with some, its usually the Cowper's Glands that are doing the secreting.

A simple test, besides taste, is to just look at the fluid that comes out of your penis during a BM. If it's perfectly clear and sticky, it came from the Cowper's Glands, and is precum. If it's milky white, or opaque, then it came from the Prostate Gland, and is prostatic fluid.

Hey, focus -

In my case, it's definitely prostatic fluid, perhaps mixed with Cowper's ... I tend to have hard stools, so there may be more pressure on the P gland than is common ... You've tasted both, and I assume your ejaculate as well ... care to comment on the differences in taste?

I was concerned about this too after b.m.'s, but the doctor said it's nothing; it's just the stool passing, putting pressure on the prostate and pushing some fluid into the urethra.

Why would you taste it?

Sure. My precum tastes a bit salty and sweet, with not much taste beyond that. My prostate fluid tastes just like my semen, which is much stronger tasting than precum. Hard to describe since it doesn't taste like anything else I've had before. Depending on what I've eaten recently, it can be a bit bitter, and has almost an alkaline, flat taste, I guess a little bit like tonic water, but not nearly as strong.

But there is a significant taste difference between precum and semen - there's no mistaking either.

Tasting my own body fluids doesn't interest me.

The notion of eating your own *** seems a bit repulsive to you ... but I would guess you would hope your partner has no such inhibitions... So: eating the stuff happens all the time, and not at all strange. In short, try it, you just might like it!
(Mine, incidentally, is really quite tasty, not at all offensive - kind of good to know...)

Repulsive is your word not mine. Different strokes for different folks.

She's not interested. Everyone has inhibitions about one thing or another, and that's not necessarily a bad thing.

Re: Leaky prostrate??

Markko,
another thing I should have mentioned in my last post is that we've gone off the original topic. I admit that I'm guilty of this at times. I see that you're a new member, and according to board guidelines, we are supposed to state our opinion to the original topic and move on. I'm going to move on and I hope you'll do the same.

Jay

PS: There's also something called "agree to disagree".
