Buyer's Guide

Starting with the Aneros MGX, we created the market for Prostate Stimulators. Over the years we have built up our product family and are proud to offer a variety of devices made from different materials that reach across various experience levels and preferences.

Are You Experienced In Prostate Massager Use?

One of the most commonly asked questions we receive is "What device should I get for my first Aneros?" And while there are certain considerations that come into play, like how much experience with prostate and anal stimulation the man has, the models we recommend are the one of our best-selling Helix models - the Syn or Classic.

Do you have a material preference?

If you own an Aneros Stimulator already, depending on your experience you likely have an idea of what you would like in a dierent model. This guide will help you conrm that idea. First, please select the device(s) that you already have.

Which Aneros Models do you Currently Own?
(If you are new to Aneros prostate massagers, just click process below)

Our recommendation is the Helix Classic. Either of the Helix models is recommended for first time Aneros customers so you really can't go wrong. The long-time best-selling Helix Classic will provide a slightly more robust prostate massage compared to the Syn. Though they are essentially the same shape, both the Syn and Classic will move and feel different from one another.

Our recommendation is the Helix Syn. Either of the Helix models is recommended for first time Aneros customers so you really can't go wrong. The Helix Syn's silicone composition makes it a slightly less aggressive choice compared to the Helix Classic. The Syn's softer "ball" style perineum-tab disperses the pressure on the perineum more than the Classic.

It's a virtual coin flip, but if we have to make a recommendation we'll suggest the Helix Syn if you have no preference on the material. The softer body and perineum-tab may seem more soothing for a first timer who is a bit anxious about prostate massage. Both the Helix Syn and Helix Classic are great for first time Aneros users.

Answer the following questions to see how the various models you don't own stack up against each other. We encourage you to connect with other community members via the Forum to learn about their experiences with a model you are interested in. Also you'll find a ton of useful nuggets in the Blogs as well.

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.
