Questions about aneros safety --- your experiences on this?

    Hello Aneros users!

    I am married, and I have a great sexual relationship with my wife that I do not want to lose. I bought my aneros to experiment with on my own, because I was curious about the super-O. I've been working with my aneros now for almost a month now, and I am making some progress. I have not had a super-O, but I am definitely experiencing some moderate sexual pleasure in my prostate, which is new and exciting for me. I would like to continue my journey, but I need to make certain that there will not be any adverse affects before I continue.

    After usages, I do have some soreness which goes away in a day or so. I also feel that it may be more difficult to have a conventional erection for some time after use, but I am not certain. I have a few questions/concerns, and I am hoping to hear back from some experienced users:

    1. Can there be perineal nerve damage from the P-tab? I know that cyclists can get nerve damage in the perineum over time, which can lead to impotency. I am concerned that the pressure of the P-tab might cause similar nerve damage. Does anyone know if this happens?

    2. Can there be internal nerve or prostate damage from continued use of the aneros? I have heard some vague concerns about this on the forum, but no definite information.

    3. Does the re-wiring, or any aspect of aneros use interfere with conventional sexual activity in any way? I do not want to risk any adverse effects on my marital sex through aneros usage. Experienced aneros users, can you comment on this? Is there any problem maintaining a healthy sexual relationship side-by-side with sustained aneros usage? Are there any problems?

    Please share your thoughts, and thank you for any information on these questions!

    I am in no way expert enough to answer you but, while you're waiting, I will just say, AFAIK and have read, the rewiring doesn't interfere with conventional sexual activity, possibly improves it. As for prostate damage - No - just do not manipulate the Aneros with your hand, careful when inserting and pulling out the Progasm (always scoop in and out, over its 2 humps, etc), don't sit directly on it, etc.

    But that is AFAIK. I just thought I'd fill in while we wait for a qualified answer.

    Dogma,

    Welcome to the forum! Rest assured there is no cause for concern here. Depending on your level of experience with anal play, a small amount of soreness is not unusual initially. If there is a larger degree of soreness however, you may need to re-evaluate what you're doing. There are several factors that may cause this, and the lube you're using may be one of them. Perhaps you require more lube (maybe pre-lubricating first...see "lubrication" in the WIKI), or change to a different lubricant. Sometimes this relates to the type of contractions you're using as well. Remember, it is not necessary to employ intense contractions with this device. Less is more...gentle contractions are the ticket. Lastly, you may want to look at the length of your sessions. While there is no set duration for any Aneros session, gradually working up to longer sessions can often be the key to dealing with soreness issues particular for the new user. Now on to your questions.

    1. Can there be perineal nerve damage from the P-tab? I know that cyclists can get nerve damage in the perineum over time, which can lead to impotency. I am concerned that the pressure of the P-tab might cause similar nerve damage. Does anyone know if this happens?


    No. The type of impairment that you are speaking of is a result of one's entire body weight being focused on the pudendal nerve. The intensity of the P-tab is minuscule by comparison. It's important to remember that the Aneros is actuated by your own contractions. The force that is brought to bear by these contractions is of insufficient strength to do any damage. I will tell you this, I've been a member of this forum from it's inception and I'm not aware of a single case of pudendal nerve entrapment or impairment resulting from the use of this device. That said, there have been a few users who have experienced some soreness on the surface of the perineum itself. But this has never produced more profound neurological changes. If this is the soreness that you speak of, let us know and we can discuss workarounds for that.

    2. Can there be internal nerve or prostate damage from continued use of the aneros? I have heard some vague concerns about this on the forum, but no definite information.


    No. When used as directed, the Aneros produces a safe level of massage proportionate to ones own anal contractions. The intensity of these contractions is insufficient to cause damage to the prostate either. That said, working the Aneros manually (driving it in and out by hand) is not recommended and can cause problems. This is should be avoided.

    3. Does the re-wiring, or any aspect of aneros use interfere with conventional sexual activity in any way? I do not want to risk any adverse effects on my marital sex through aneros usage. Experienced aneros users, can you comment on this? Is there any problem maintaining a healthy sexual relationship side-by-side with sustained aneros usage? Are there any problems?

    No, to the contrary, most users have felt that the Aneros enhances their encounters with their partners. Having said that, the journey to the Super O is a learning process that takes time and patience. It often requires some solo time, (as you learn about your body) which can affect the time spent with one's partner. If one maintains a sense of balance with this, there is no problem. In the long run, one is looking at unlocking a greater sexual potential that can be shared with a partner with tremendous results.

    The sensual awakening that we call "re-wiring" is not something that will adversely effect your sex life. You will still have the same orgasmic abilities that you had in the past, but you may have some new ones as well! Something else you should know, the Aneros was originally created by a urologist for the treatment of BPH and prostatitis. It is still sold for those purposes today. As a health product, safety has always been a primary concern for the makers of this product.

    I'd suggest that you use the Aneros under your own conditions and see how it performs for you. Although I suspect that the possible erectile problems are unrelated, if you're having difficulty with erections after Aneros sessions, experiment with fewer sessions, maybe once or twice a week to start with. If you're still having the problem, discontinue using the Aneros entirely and see what happens. Again, I am unaware of users having this kind of problem as a result of Aneros use.

    With respect to the type of soreness that you're experiencing, if you could be a little more specific about it and specific about how you've been using the Aneros (how many times per week, duration of sessions, type of lube, length and intensity of contractions), it might help us address this.

    As always, as you are new to the forum, I would suggest that you familiarize yourself with the Aneros WIKI. This resource is the distillation of threads and posts of our most experienced members.

    Cheers,

    BF Mayfield

    Hi Dogma,

    Welcome to the Aneros Forums,

    I agree with everything 'B Mayfield' said in his thorough post response to you. The only thing I would add is the fact use of these massagers can have an addictive effect. You can get some further information about this from the Psychological and Managing addiction sections of the WIKI.
  • Absolutely great reply, Brian. Just great.

    Dogma, welcome to the forum. Your carefully crafted questions indicate your thoughtful process. Be assured of the same kind of thoughtful answers, as you can see from B Mayfield. This is a wonderful, caring fraternity, and there is absolutely nothing you can ask here that will not be handled that way.

    Good luck, enjoy your Aneros. It'll spice up your relationship. Read those posts rumel mentioned. It'll help you get a handle on this wonderful device. You may also find this thread interesting as well:http://www.aneros.com/forum/f5/penis-not-13035/#post83915

    Again, welcome, come often, read, enjoy and share with us as you journey to rewiring.

    Hi Dogma,

    I'd suggest to fear not about the p-tab's effects on the pudental bundle.

    Having some background in E.D. counseling I was concerned about being flaccid when intensely aroused. My first suspicion paralleled yours. So, I devised a couple of personal tests using oral and injectible meds. One to look for arterial constriction and the other to check for nerve blocking. I found that my erectile performance was the same whether or not I was penetrated. Arterial pulse into the cavernosa was excellent and the neural loop to the spine performed as usual.

    In addition to blogging your progress and posting in the Forum, I'd suggest joining into the Chatroom sessions -- great place to address concerns and get quick answers.

    i had and still do have the same issue with not being able to achive an erection with aneros inserted but i can assure You everything returns to normal the next morning and continous use can improve the strengh of your erection"when not using the aneros" i am 10 months into my journey and no ill effects quite the opposite i have stronger erections and they were fine before so now they can be like iron, slightly higher sex drive, and a feeling i cant describe properly it just feels better in the pelvic region tighter or healthier or something? i had the same concerns as you in the beggining my advice is dont worry as long as you dont manipulate the aneros with your hands or sit on it you should not have any problems and if you did its nothing that wont get better after a few days rest

    Thanks to everyone who responded so far! The information is very reassuring.

    Yesterday, my erections returned to normal without the aneros, and were unusually strong - leading to two rounds of great sex with my wife. The first time that that's happened in a long time.

    I'm looking forward to continuing my exploration with the aneros!

    One of the factors that improves a sense of erectile quality is strengthening of the pelvic floor where the crus attaches to the pelvic ligaments and musculature. (Crus is that extension of erectile tissue that lies behind your pelvic bone.) While the erection itself may not be any harder, it's better anchored to the pelvis and therefore more easily maneuvered. Aneros use by itself will strengthen and maintain that musculature.

    If you want to move things along more rapidly, have your wife coach you through Kegel exercises both with and without the Aneros inserted. (Women who have given birth are usually expert in Kegels, having used them to improve their postpartum muscle quality. That quality lets them apply that 'little squeeze' that we treasure so much.

    As you muscle-up the Aneros p-tab will become more of a pleasure point (aka Sweet Spot). You'll also improve your agility with models like the Helix and Eupho.

    Enjoy the venture.
