  • Thank you Love_is.
    I tried again but put a third ball for lubrication. I walked around doing things around the apt. and felt like it was slipping ouy all the time, Did I have too much Shea Butter this time?
    I will get a smaller Aneros and put my "PG" on the side till I figure this whole thing out. I enjoy anal play, my wife sometimes plays with my Butt with vibrators and she know how much I love it. She enjoys it when I get nuts from it but I hesitate telling her about this typy of toy. This seems to be more of a solo toy as opposed to a sex toy we can play with during lovemaking. Am I wron in not tellling her? We have no other real secretes, that I know of, but I feel like i'm cheatng.
    Advise, please.

    • Hello StiflersDad,

      I'm not sure if it is possible to have too much lubrication. (Within limits obviously) You're not trying to fill your rectum with lube. But you certainly can use too much in the sense of wasting the lube and having more of a monetary expense through using it up quicker. You just have to experiment with what amount is just enough for you.

      As for your other questions, it's not that I don't want to answer them. But this particular thread is about unrefined shea butter and it's usage. So I don't want this thread diluted with off topic discussions. I highly recommend that you create your own thread and ask your other questions there. Thank you.

      • I am a newbie but have found my first several sessions enjoyable. From the start I used shea butter, but the first couple of sessions were rather messy trying to insert the shea. Sad to say, but I spent some time thinking of different "delivery" systems. Well, I think I found something that meets my goals of low cost with little waste and hygienic. I did not want to reuse something after where it had been

        The answer: a straw! I stuck the straw into room temp shea a couple of time to create several inches of shea. Squeezed the end of the straw to provide approx one inch of empty space to allow me to pinch the straw for easier insertion. Inserted the straw and basically squeezed the shea out of the straw. The little bit that was left on my finger and thumb was used to coat the aneros.

        Hope this helps others.

          What a great idea! It shows there are all sorts of ways to work with using shea butter. Thank you for posting what works for you.

          I don't know if you've read the earlier posts in this thread... But most users get around this problem by refrigerating their shea butter. Shea butter starts to melt around 76F/24.4C degrees. So if you live in a hot climate, or are experiencing hot summer months, you might try this and avoid having to use straws. It makes it quite hard, and then you can use a small spoon or knife to break some chunks out. Some users like to heat up the spoon or knife so it is a clean cut and likely a singular piece of shea butter that comes out. But I don't personally do this. This make insertion in the rectum hardly messy at all, and much less wasteful. Others users, like Rook for example, choose to inject with a syringe either softened or melted shea butter. Just some different ideas to consider.

          • Ok, I think I got the right thread here to ask this question.

            With the new addition of the Vice... will shea butter (the oil) attack the silicon and start to break it down over time? I only started to wonder about this because I was doing some research on coconut oil and found that it (the coconut oil) can break down condoms. I know condoms are generally latex.. but is there any correlation or concern about using shea butter with the vice?

            • Hello Yakapelli,

              Thank you for posting your question here. I don't think there will be any issues with Aneros Vice + shea butter. I base this on my own experiments with my Feeldoe More that is a 100% silicone toy. I've used it several times with shea butter and have not noticed any degradation of the silicone. If you still have concerns, send a private message to "support". Or an e-mail to support@aneros.com. I'm sure they will be happy to confirm whether or not there is an issue with plant based oils in general, and the silicone in the Vice model.

              • I keep mine frozen and just cut out "slivers" and it is working very well for me...easy to insert too ! Nice and cold in my anus, but warms and melts quickly....

                • hi guys
                  a fantastic forum and so much good info!
                  well i have a question that seems not to have been covered as yet. does anyone know if using shea butter while taking warfarin causes any problems? i have googled but have failed to come up with anything concrete so far, perhaps some of you can help and perhaps paste the links for others to check out.
                  well i have only used my progasm about 4 times, upto now i have been using ky but since this is absorbed causing dryness i thought its time to change the lube. last night was my best session so far with my progasm, i had a mini O within 20 mins then spent the next hour pretty much on the edge of a super O, the shaking and feelings i had were out of this world but i seemed to be just on the edge. what an experience though.
                  just noticed the ebay here in the uk have unrefined shea for 4, had anyone used this this and if so how did you find it?

                  • Hello Geordie,

                    It seems that nobody appears to know the answer to your question of pharmaceutical interactions. Perhaps ask your doctor?

                    As far as the shea butter you found on Ebay, perhaps posting a link would be helpful so other people know what you are talking about?

                    ----------------------------------------------------

                    On a different note, I've once again accidentally overcooked my current jar of Now Solutions shea butter. I think that will be the last time I do that. I hate to waste. And the end result is that the shea butter's melting temperature is significantly increased such that it is not worth a damn as a lube so it gets thrown out. Where as even when it is crumbly and/or gritty, it is still very effective lube. Just a bit more difficult to insert without making a mess.

                    Thankfully a friend gave me a jar of "Nubian Heritage" raw Shea butter that she had and did not use. I've never used or seen this brand, but the color looks about right, and it seems promising from just melting some between my fingers. Although the odor is a good deal stronger than I'm used to. I'll report back what I find.

                    So as far as heating shea butter until melted to try and eliminate a crumbly or gritty consistency goes...
                    There is some risk involved. It should not be heated very much and at low temperatures or you are likely to end up with a ruined jar of shea butter and wasted money.

                      As love_is suggests, talk to your doc. Perhaps it's a long-shot but you might find it listed in the Physicians Desk Reference (PDR) for Herbals and Supplements. if there's a direct danger it may appear, as Saw Palmetto does, as "synergistic to blood thinning agents." An indirect danger is having a personal allergy to tree nuts. One's allergic response might then energize the blood thinning agent.

                      Personal experience: I take a Plavix + Aspirin and have no issues with alv's recipe -- Shea Butter + Coconut oil. However Warfarin and Coumadin offer less room for error.

                      • Hi all, well I'm a newbie to this site and to the Aneros. I have been consumed in this forum learning all i can about both the health and sexual benefits of Aneros. It's great so far.
                        Anyway, let me get back on track of the thread. I have researched where to by Shea butter here in Australia and found Shea Butter Australia Pty Ltd who sell unrefined Shea butter, 1kg sells for $19.80 AUS plus postage. I have not tried it as yet as im still anxiously awaiting delivery of my newly purchased Helix (my fist Aneros)
                        By the way i must say incredibly impressed with the support people provide in helping other achieve new experiences. Kudos to all forum members

                        • Hello Simmo,

                          And welcome to the Aneros forums.
                          Let us know how this shea butter works out so that other people in your country can be informed. You are much like in the same situation as the people in the UK that don't have access to purchasing the Now Solutions shea butter brand. The price seems pretty reasonable for that weight in shea butter. But without seeing the color of it, I can't even begin to guess if it may work good as anal lube. I hope it does, so it is not a waste of money. I guess at least worst case you can use it as body/skin moisturizer.

                          • Hi Love_Is
                            I have confirmation that my Shea butter is on it's way, so will wait and see what the colour and consistency is like.
                            I hope it lives up to expectation. The director is keen to get feedback on his product (I didn't say what it is going to lubricate, I don't think he needs to know) I'm guessing he might be new to it (selling the product). Usually this means companies produce the highest quality product for the lowest price. I'll give you an update on how it goes. I'm still waiting for my Helix to turn up so I'm quite excited.

                            • Thanks for the brief update Simmo.

                              On another note, I finally tried the "Nubian Heritage" shea butter that was given to me last night. And it burned my inner anal sphincter and rectum just like the Alaffia brand did. I suspect these are brands that use chemical extraction, and the left over chemical residue is what is causing this. Interestingly enough, in hindsight, the smell was quite similar to the Alaffia brand. Although entirely different colors.

                              So I'm off to the store to buy a new jar of Now Solutions shea butter today. And I think I'm pretty sure I won't be heating it up. It's just not worth the risk.

                              • Hi Love_is, I double checked site after reading your post. The company specifically states they use mechanical extraction and use no chemicals. They also ship overseas, but ill try it first and give an update on texture, feel, colour and longevity.
