Is circumventing ejaculation with pressure to the perineum harmful?

About eight or so years ago when I was a teenager I read somewhere that pressing down firmly on the perineum with your fingers during an ejaculation prevents the semen from coming out (not entirely I was to find out, there's still a little leakage, but it does stop the bulk of it). Being a teenager, I found this a very useful means of saving tissues.
However, I got into a habit of doing this and continue to do it to this day, about 2/3 of the time I orgasm. How exactly does this work, and is it in any way harmful to my prostate, etc.? I'm not having any problems with my prostate, urinary tract, or sex drive at the moment, I'm asking out of curiosity.
