A Road Less Travelled

  • The Journey So Far

    I bought my Helix in October 2009 and the Hypnaeros tracks shortly after, and began using them regularly. I researched techniques and tricks and tried everything I could think of, but after a few months of absolutely no progress, I began to get discouraged. I went from every few days, to a few weeks, to months between sessions. I considered trying another model, but was hesitant to throw more money into it, doubting that it would make a difference. I was never really skeptical of the Aneros to do as it promised in a general sense, but I suspected that my height and size may have been a problem.

    By December 2010, my sessions had completely stopped, but my wife had started school, which meant that I was home on my days off, with plenty of free time alone. I began researching the problem again, and decided that the handle was my problem. I had never gotten much movement at all from the Helix, and the P-tab had always pressed against me too painfully. I reasoned that the handle was restricting the Aneros' movement.

    I used a knife to trim the handle off, giving myself a nice nick on the thumb when the blade suddenly snicked through the last bit of plastic. After smoothing it down to a rounded nub, I tried my modified toy for the first time. I noticed an immediate difference. The p-tab was no longer painful, and the Aneros was able to travel in and out instead of being fixed. It's resting position was different than before.

    I began to feel something almost immediately, but things really began to take off over the course of a few more sessions. Some of my experiences were very strange. For example, one evening after I had been laying on my back with the Aneros inserted for a time, I began to feel like I was spinning, sometimes on a vertical axis, sometimes horizontal. It was not really unpleasant, but it was very distracting. I tried to just let things happen as they would and eventually the vertigo settled down.

    It was about the third or fourth session after modding my Helix that I managed to trigger involuntaries. I had never been able to make that happen before, and again I blame the handle's restriction of all movement for me. A few more sessions and I was able to get involuntaries at will, and soon they were more or less automatic. I could tell by now when the Aneros was contacting my prostate and had begun to notice how different body and leg positions could change the intensity of feeling from that contact.

    I was probably a month in when I first noticed feelings of building, where the immediate feelings of contact from the toy had lasting effects on that area of my body that gradually grew stronger over time. I tried to remind myself not to try to force orgasm, but it took some time to get over the urge.

A to Z


A anal sphincter

The ring of muscles surrounding the anus. There are two rings, the outer and the inner. The outer is under voluntary control. The inner is not (it is controlled by the autonomic nervous system but can be trained to relax therapeutically with biofeedback). To identify this muscle, squeeze your anus as though you are holding back gas. This is the muscle that primarily drives the motion of the Aneros.

B Benign Prostate Hyperplasia

Or BPH. A non-cancerous enlarging of the prostate common in middle aged and older men, often causing urinary symptoms. BPH is one of the prostate ailments that the Aneros was originally developed to help treat. (from the wiki)

H hands-free

The patented design of our massagers allows them to be used completely – hands-free. This is an advantage over other prostate massagers. It allows an Aneros massager to be used in any position the user wants. More importantly, it frees the user to focus solely on the sensations instead of making a conscious effort to manually manipulate the massager. This subtle freedom is important for bringing the mind and body together during a session, which by many experience users is considered a required technique to master in order to achieve a Super-O.

J journey to the Super-O

Aneros massagers can be enjoyed in many different ways – to enhance a strength and pleasure of penile orgasms during partnered or solo sex, or solely for the pleasures derived from prostate orgasms. The ultimate experience for the route is the Super-O. The practice and understanding of how an Aneros massager, the body, and mind play off of one another to eventually achieve a Super-O is now commonly referred to as the “Journey to the Super-O” by our community members. For some men, this learning period is short in duration. For others, it can take quite some time. There are some key milestones on this journey – they can be viewed

K Kundalini Tab

Also known as the K-Tab.  Curves upwards to rest above the anus between the buttocks to pressure on an acupressure spot there. Named after the yoga concept that there is a serpent of power located at the base of the body’s trunk. The K-Tab and the arm that it extends from has taken the place of the handle seen in other Aneros models. (adapted from the wiki)

P PC muscle

The pubococcygeus muscle, one of a number of muscles in the pelvic floor. It is a hammock-like muscle, found in both sexes, that stretches from the pubic bone to the coccyx (tail bone) forming the floor of the pelvic cavity and supporting the pelvic organs. The PC muscle is largely involved in sexual response and contracting during orgasm. It is believed that strengthening leads to longer, more powerful orgasms. (from the wiki)

pelvic floor

The set of muscles that span the area beneath the pelvis, supporting the pelvic organs. (from the wiki)


The area between the scrotum and anus. The perineum provides external access to the prostate and a pudendal nerve acupressure spot.

perineum tab

On Aneros devices, the front arm which curves upward to press on the perineum during an Aneros session.   This actions prevents external prostate stimulation.  It also acts as a fulcrum against which the device can pivot to perform the internal prostate stimulation.


Aneros massagers are made from 3 different types of plastic. All are FDA approved and medical-grade, non-porous, and each has the right density for the right weight and balance for that particular model.


Inflammation of the prostate. Although there are many suspected causes, (bacterial infection, auto-immune response and neuromuscular tension), prostatitis remains an intractable disease which is often times unresponsive to traditional forms of treatment. Before the advent of antibiotics prostate massage was the first line form of treatment. In recent years with many people turning to holistic and homeopathic forms of medicine, prostate massage has been enjoying resurgence. (from the wiki)


Prostate specific antigen. A chemical produced in the prostate and measured in the blood as an indication of cellular activity in the prostate. Abnormally high levels of PSA may indicate health concerns such as inflammation or cancer. The PSA measurement may be elevated by ejaculation, and any form of anal play, including the Aneros. Ask your doctor for a recommended period of abstention prior to taking this test (the Aneros manufacturer suggests a few days to a week). (from the wiki)

S silicone

We call our silicone “Velvet Touch” for its luxurious, matte finish which is designed to hold lubricant. Silicone is used in our Syn models as well as the Vice and deVice.


An abbreviation of Super orgasm. An overwhelmingly strong non-ejaculatory orgasmic event. Orgasms that have no refractory period allowing them to be repeated multiple times.  Though different for each man, the Super-O is considered to be the ultimate pleasure a man can achieve.
