Simply put, the SYN (as in synergy) is a meticulously reconceived version of the most popular Aneros model of all time…the venerable Helix. The SYN demonstrates keen innovations for comfort and performance, with a striking aesthetic that one rarely sees in adult products. The SYN also represents the first in a series of models that will be designed with the assistance of user feedback (more on this later).
The SYN is a gorgeous black and red, two-toned edition of the Helix, in shades reminiscent of the pages of the Aneros website. Even before the advent of the VICE, users had been clamoring for softer more comfortable massagers. From a design perspective the challenge had always been that a certain amount of rigidity was required for the proper pivoting action of the device and silicone alone was not up to the task…particularly in their smaller, thinner models. The solution, as it turns out, was a hybrid design utilizing two materials instead of one. The body, abutment arm and tab feature rigid styrene inner frames over-coated with a luxurious “Velvet Touch” medical grade silicone. High marks go to the Aneros designers for this alone, as the silicone is neither too soft nor too firm. In essence it is “just right” combining optimum comfort with enough firmness to assure proper performance.
Inserting the SYN is smooth and effortless and it feels positively delicious! The prostate engagement is affirmative yet cushy, and the sensation is incomparable with any other Aneros model to date. You just have to experience it! The softer feel makes it great for “over-nighters” and those who enjoy wearing the Aneros out during the day. For many years I advised against such practices on account of the rigidity of the traditional Aneros units and the real potential for over-stimulation. The “Velvet Touch” silicone is a much kinder, gentler material that is perfect for such users and those who are into more extended sessions as well.
The SYN features a newly designed abutment tab created in concert with user feedback. For years many users had complained about P-tabs that were too aggressive and pinched, poked and prodded. To eliminate these problems an “M and M” shaped tab was agreed upon. The result is a tab that has a softer focus while maintaining the required pivoting action and consistent perineal stimulation. In addition, the abutment arm’s hybrid structure yields an almost “spring loaded” feel. This Aneros has comfort written all over it!
The SYN is very nimble, responding to the smallest contractions with alacrity. To achieve this the body of the massager was redesign just below the midline ridge with a wider, deeper contour. The result is a unit that is balanced to fall forward with greater ease. As with the VICE and other silicone products, the SYN should be lubricated copiously. (My personal favorite: KY liquid pre-lube with an application of KY on the SYN itself).
REMEMBER: CARE MUST BE TAKEN TO AVOID ANY LUBRICANTS CONTAINING SILICONE AS THEY WILL PERMANENTLY DEGRADE AND DAMAGE THE SYN.
The SYN is perfectly suited for use during intercourse or more “traditional activities” (where ejaculation is involved), where a firm yet comfortable massage is desired. The SYN is uniquely suited for a side-to-side wiggling motion (when lying on one’s back). Internally this produces the most divine sensations as the Aneros darts back and forth between both lobes of the prostate.
In so far as the aesthetic is concerned, the SYN represents the highest point yet in terms of Aneros style and function. Sitting in the box the device looks like something suitable for framing! The overcoat application seems to have been gracefully applied, and the looped red handle and black abutment arm and tab evoke “ying and yang” imagery. When considered with the red dot on the tab, it’s somewhat reminiscent of the Super-O logo created by Rumel. Tis a thing of beauty!
So what IS in a name? SYNERGY: the interaction or cooperation of two or more organizations or agents to produce a combined effect greater than the sum of its parts. In the context of the Aneros SYN it’s about the use of several materials in order to build a better product. But at the same time the name encompasses a powerful new relationship between users and Aneros designers.
The SYN is a terrific choice for new and advanced users alike.
Great for users who like to “wear an Aneros out”, “over-nighters”, those who have experienced discomfort with other P-tabs and users who want an Aneros for intercourse.
More expensive than the older models. P-tab engagement may be too subtle for some. Cannot use with silicone-based lubricants.
