  • Hi all!

    I am VERY excited to have purchased the Aneros helix. I made my purchase on the 9th and purchased the fastest shipment to Canada, I am still waiting impatiently :'-( lol

    My question: I see a lot of people here use a rectal syringe and lube shooters and such. Is this required? Can I not just lube up the aneros and insert?

    Thanks! :)

    I don't think you are required to, and some individuals probably like not doing so, but generally you get more movement if you pre-lube inside and on the Aneros. It seems to work better for me personally, but I've had many sessions before trying it that were good too.

    i chose 'it depends'. i usually do not pre lube. it can be beneficial especially with the progasm but i dont think it would necessarily be an ice breaker as such. for me, the biggest downside is that i cant just dose off after my session because ill inevitably pass wind and end up with a puddle of nasty lube. also, you go through so much more lube this way. having said that, i just bought a giant tube of wet 'light' that im eager to try out.
  • The only worry i have is having the lube dry out and then not being able to take it out - is that possible? :oops:

    I have WET light - is that okay? (not sure what the light means... This is the one that I already own pre-aneros. for general sex and such masturbation). Should I buy something different?

    Thanks!

    I put "it depends" because for years I used KY, a water-based gel lube, and in that case, I found it necessary to insert some KY in my rectum as well as lube up the aneros before insertion.

    I recently switched to Boy Butter, which is a silicone lube. All it takes is a few drops rubbed on the aneros and I'm good for hours.

    I voted yes because it is enough for me to simply lube up the Aneros and go. I do occasionally use the syringe but it is not very often.

  • I voted yes. Also related to drying out, I use lubes that the fisting folks use and there is no drying out. I use Elbow Grease & Slam Dunk primarily.

    Prelube seems to only work with the Progasm for me. By this I mean, the Progasm is the only model that seems to require this in order to move more freely.

  • Thanks guys! Keep the answers coming!

    I'm still waiting *so sad* I was expecting it to arrive yesterday. It cleared Canadian customs at 9:30 on the 12th....Now I guess I need to wait till Mo nday. boo.
  • :D I don't think you have to, but if you want Mega Super O's I suggest you do (and that's from experience). Basically the less friction, the more pleasure.
  • My view is that the colon is basically a dryer so lube is needed to get the movement going that we need to experience an effective massage. I've had the most success inserting say 5 to 7cc of KY using a syringe and inserting my Helix in a condom that I lube both inside and out with Astroglide. The slipperier the better for me. Perhaps I'm over doing it but I've had so much pleasure with this approach that I'm hesitant to cut back.
  • OH!!

    I used to think you had to douche first, and inject lubricant in the rectum, but I've been experimenting and you dont' have to do either. It may be a bit better that way, but you can get plenty bang for the buck just by using a good lube on the Aneros. Make sure you have evacuated properly enough time in advance, and if recently then you might want to douche with warm water. If you use a nice fairly thick lubricant on the Aneros that is enough. I only use water based lubs. These are best and likely healthiest internally for you as well.

    I voted no. But I think that there are circumstances where saying it depends would be correct also.

    For example, the people that use silicone based lubricants, obviously don't need to pre-lube. I personally don't like the idea of that stuff being absorbed into my body, so I use water soluble glycerin based lubes.

    Using glycerin based lubes I've successfully just lubed the Aneros and my anus and it was ok. But I think there are circumstances recently where I've observed this to become a problem. Mainly if you are having a long session. And also if you swap toys out during the session. Neither of which I had previously done as I did not start to have any results until about 2 or 3 weeks back.

    I learned this the hard way the other night. I did pre-lube, but I had some difficulty trying to get the plunger into the syringe, and it slipped and push some of the lube out onto the floor. I figured I'd just use what was left in the syringe and leave it at that. I probably only got about 1ml of lube in me compared to my normal 2.5 to 3ml amount.

    Anyways, I was ok initially, but partway through the session I removed the MGX, and inserted the Helix after lubing it. And I found I couldn't quite get it to feel comfortable no matter how I relaxed. So I ended the session and pushed out the Helix only to be horrified that it was completely dry! So needless to say, my anus was quite sore yesterday, but starting to feel better today.

    I think that for now on I will lean on the side of caution and use a little more pre-lube than I have been using as my sessions tend to be a lot longer than they have been in the past. And I suspect I might even pre-lube again if I change a toy out during session.

    That's my 2 cents :wink:

    Hey people,

    I figured would update since my last post. Since it has been a while ago and things have changed.

    As it stands now, since switching over to refined 100% shea butter, and eventually unrefined 100% shea butter, it changes a little how things are done. But I still feel that just lubing the toy is probably not a wise idea. And I'm not about to test it. There is some pre-lubing involved with shea butter, and other solidified oils. But nothing as complex, time consuming, or requiring injection devices like using liquid based lubes.

    I use three smalls clumps of lube that you get by running a clean finger into the jar. About 1cm size or smaller. The first one gets placed on my Aneros to spread on it after lubing my anus and rectum. The second one gets pushed midway into my anus. And the third gets pushed into my rectum. I can go as long as I want with no additional lubing needed. With the exception of swapping different Aneros models. Then the new one going in gets a coating of lube.

    Every session I've had this way, when it is ended, upon pulling my Aneros out, there is always plenty of lube. So next session I'm going to try cutting down the amount I use. One clump to pre-lube anus and rectum, and a second clump to lube the Aneros. I suspect it will be enough, and also lower my cost of the lube, since it will last longer.

    Love is Peace
  • I have found Probe Thick and rich to be my lube of choice. I place about 3 ML in my rectum and then lube my Aneros of choice. Probe does not cause the "fart" problem afterwards but when I used other lubes it did. I believe Probe has all natural ingredients. When I use Progasm (always last) I will lube up again. Go to Walgreens Pharmacy and get your FREE medicine dropper. Just ask. :roll:

    Yes--a little boy butter on the Aneros and you will have a great time.

    Cleaning myself in the tub with my finger is enough stimulation to get the juices flowing. This is great preparation for the Aneros and find I rarely need to use lube. I generally produce enough of my own anal lubrication for intercourse as well.
  • I'm learning a lot here. I have just been using KY. Is that not good enough? Then again, I have not experienced anything at all so far. I have inserted the helix a few times and not much of anything. I believe it will work but I think that I must be approaching this wrong. Perhaps KY is not the right thing to use.
  • For me, it depends on the Aneros model. I always use the water-based KY jel to lube my anus AND Aneros toy before a session. When I bring out the Big Boy, my Progasm Ice, however, I also inject about 4 ml of water-based Astroglide into my rectum. Besides giving that extra bit of lube for the Progasm's tighter fit, I find the sensation from the insertion of the lube applicator into my rectum a nice extra bonus in the process! :wink:

    Where can you get boy butter or elbow grease online at??? KY dries out to fast.

    So far, I've never injected lube into my anus before I started. I've been using Astroglide and just lube up the Aneros thoroughly and have been good to go for as long as I want (up to 3-4 hours but usually 1 - 1 1/2 hours max). Have also used ID Glide a few times and today used KY Gel which worked really well for me.

    Haven't had the lube dry out on me during a session - maybe I'm just lucky. :D

    I seriously doubt one need the syring, that's probably more for people who like the idea of using one, maybe.

    I would definitly lube the anus and not just the toy but I doubt you need a syringe to do it.

    Crap, maybe I should have had one then.

    Does normal sex stores really carry those things or is that an Aneros special?

    Do people use them for anal sex to?

    Out of stock at the moment http://www.lovehoney.co.uk/product.cfm?p=4478

    I have not tried it yet, but intend to.
  • I lube both my anus and my aneros. I don't go overboard lubing the anus, just lightly It goes in smoothly, comfortably, and ready to go. I use the astroglide.

    Just look at any oil based anal lube, I guess. I don't know which one is the best one. Lovehoney has some, http://www.bedtimeheaven.co.uk/ http://www.bedroompleasures.co.uk/ http://www.passion8.co.uk/ are some other uk toy shops.

    For instance:
    http://www.bedtimeheaven.co.uk/subcat-cat~6-subcat~58-paging~-order_by~-offset~0.htm
    http://www.bedtimeheaven.co.uk/product_detail-prodID~10507.htm
    http://www.bedtimeheaven.co.uk/product_detail-prodID~10481.htm
    http://www.bedtimeheaven.co.uk/product_detail-prodID~9295.htm
    http://www.bedtimeheaven.co.uk/product_detail-prodID~6270.htm

    And so on, Lovehoney probably have most items + the reviews. To me bedtimeheaven have seemed to in general have better prices though.

    I have no idea which ones are best, try them out and tell us =P

    They only got male/gay stuff I think so you might find other useful things there to.

    yes--lubing up the aneros with a bit of lube on the rim of your anus will get the job done nicely.
  • My first and only Aneros is the Progasm.I had initially only lubed it.But as others have said.Maybe due to its size.I feel it FLOATS and massages more gently.With a couple cc's of pre lube.Will continue experimenting and update maybe later
  • as i've posted before i use only some vaseline or albolene on my progasm although i soak my butt and the aneros in very warm almost hot water and spend a lot of time teasing and relaxing my anal sphincter with ivory foam or similar (one part ivory or dove to ten or twenty parts H2O in a pump foamer), and i probe my butt with a foamy soapy finger checking out the landmarks and confirming the emptiness of my rectum ("rectal vault") ...

    i have discussed the issue with guys both str8 and gay who practice or have practiced either pegging or anal sex with a partner - as either pitcher or catcher - and have confirmed what i know to be true ==> lube especially glycerine when used in any [I]quantity can act as a stimulant and cause a shitty experience[/I]

    ... i found the following vid on xtube showing a dude using a "rudeboy" ass and prostate vibrating stimulator and you will note at about 00:35 he lubes the toy and his anus with a very modest amount of lube (type uncertain) ==> NotEJay's Videos

    hope this is helpful

    Rip,

    Quite the opposite of warming the Aneros ahead of time is the "ice bath" method, which I've tried on occasion with success. In my rendition, I slather the Aneros with a thick coat of room-temperature shea butter, pop it in a baggie, and then plunge it into an ice bin (others use ice water). The shea butter hardens in just a couple of minutes. Then, pop it back out of the baggie and carefully insert. Rather than losing shea butter 'on the way in,' all of it stays intact on the Aneros until it's in the right position against your prostate. Then, go lie down and relax (while either enjoying, or not, the new sensation of a "cool Aneros") and in a few more minutes, the shea butter is getting close to body temperature and ready for fun time.

    i read the poll reply's wrongly and voted as yes { IDIOT } i myself only started using the aneros 6 months ago and my first model was the mgx i did not at the time purchase a lube applicator which i remidied soon after and found the experience much more pleasant i have now reduced the amount of injected lube prior to a session and coat mgx/helix with a good layer of gun oil lubricant this is fine and the mobility is great but when using the progasm i up the amount of lube applied analy and usually use helix for a while before introducing the bigger pro , i also tried olive oil and it lasted ages with the progasm without re lubing

    It depends to me on how long it was since the last time I used an Aneros. If it's been very recent and I'm still pretty coated with lube, I won't insert any more - just lube the Aneros. Otherwise it's the full prep: enema and a small amount of lube with a syringe.
  • In order to fully lube myself, I need to use a lube injector which in itself is quite pleasurable. However, squirting so deeply can at times give me the runs.
    As I do my exercises, on the other hand, I find that happening less and less frequently. I may try a smaller size instrument than the Progasm in order to minimize my need on lube, at least squirted so deeply.

    Peridise, Tempo or SGX: Just Crisco or Shea on the tool and I'm GTG

    Larger tools: Smear the tool and inject 2ml to 5ml of melted Shea+Coconut (larger tool, more lube)

    On travel: Slippery Stuff(gel) smeared and injected -- because cleanup is easier

    Rip:

    I'm with you. Just a little Vaseline or sometimes Coconut Oil for me on the MGX or Progasm... and I'm good to go. However, sometimes I prelube with either coconut or olive oil. Just depends on my mood. Either way is good.
