Arousal, Erection and Medication
  • Hello Aneros,
    By reading through the post it seems that like certain
    amount of arousal is helpful in getting the Helix headed in the right direction. The medication I am presently taking make it at best difficult to get aroused enough for an erection. So my thought is that if I can’t find enough arousal for an erection, I’m going to be hard pressed to get enough for the Helix to work.
    Thoughts?
  • HI Phranque (interesting spelling :) )

    Personally, I find the two to be mutually contradictory; erection kills prostate focus, and aneros/prostate focus kills erection. Using the Aneros (I too have a Helix) is a different kind of critter altoghther... forget about conventional ideas of sexual pleasure; the only thing they share in common is the mental attitude. Again, for me, it's more of a mental thing; I can get so aroused from reading some "close-to-home" erotica or hauling out a favorite fantasy, that even with no erection, I find myself soaking my shorts with pre-cum. Guess I'm just blessed, that way. Don't let the lack of erection slow you down; just do whatever it takes to get into the mood mentally, plug in Ms. Aneros, and let the fantasies continue. I had a related problem with medication, only it didn't interfere with erection, but I couldn't come. Talk about frustrated! Bear in mind that I'm a newbie as well (only six sessions under my belt, so to speak ;) ), and I can only say what works for me, so far.

    Phranque,

    Welcome to the Forums,

    The term "arousal", as used on this Forum is meant to refer to one's global body state rather than one's
    penile erection state. I invite you to read the thread Are you "aroused"? for a more detailed discussion of this topic.

    It is not necessary to have an erection to use and enjoy your Aneros massager.
