Trouble getting/keeping an erection?

    Many of you guys mention that you have "fuller" erections when using your Aneros, or your wives mention that you seem bigger. Well, I seem to have the opposite problem. Any prostate stimulation for me keeps my penis very soft, and even vigorous masturbation is unable to produce a large erection. During the past few sessions, there were a few times when I suddenly got an erection, but it soon faded. Maybe I'm just not hitting the right spot, and managed to hit it briefly those times?

    By the way, I have no problems at all without the Aneros in. I can take it out and get an almost instant erection with no trouble.

    I'm not sure this is a big deal as you don't want penis stimulation anyway, but if the large erection happens to the rest of you, I worry I might be doing something wrong.

    Alex -

    I think what you are experiencing is very normal. I think the vast majority of Aneros users have no erection at all while inserted. Some do experience a temporary erection but for the most part none at all. I have read that due to the massaging internally the blood flow is directed more inward and thus starving the penis shaft. What we do experience in the way of bigger hard on's is after removing the device. Especially the hours following a session and the next morning. I have masturbated with the Aneros inserted. The erection is not as hard but the volume is greater. You will also hear of pre-cum being excreted. Here again I think the majority only experience a very very small amount of fluid while the massaging is taking place.

    I usually watch some porn before and during my aneros sessions, and from time to time I'll get an erection that seems to feel "tighter" and much more tingly than usual. But for most of the time it's semi-hard at best. Some fluid leakage, but it varies and it's usually not more than a few drops.

    Although I certainly get some nice feelings while I'm erect, I think the feelings have more to do with a temporary period of heightened arousal (mental) than being erect (physical). I haven't reached the super-O yet, but recently I've been getting sensations that aren't so centered on the penis, more like deep at its base inside me. Being erect or not doesn't seem to be so important. I'll try to write a post in the next day or so explaining my progress (if that's the word for it...)

    That said, when I do finish off by masturbating, I don't have much trouble getting an erection before cumming.

    Hey Alex,

    My experience has been similiar to yours regarding the Aneros and erection. Although I've always become erect quite easily in regular erotic situations, something about anal stimulation would make it virtually impossible. I actually had always assumed I was in the minority in that regard until I read Mark's reply here (thanks for the info Mark). One thing I would mention is that my experience with this changed quite a bit over the years as I adjusted and changed the Aneros models I was using.

    When I was using my first Aneros, the Classic model, I found myself less likely to become erect, and even found the erections uncomfortable when they did occur. As my perineum would swell from the erection, the abutment tab would press too deeply against it to a point of discomfort.

    I later found that by adjusting the perineal tab, bringing it closer to the base of the insertion piece, the discomfort went away when I would become erect, although it still didn't happen as easily as without the device.

    These days I am mostly using the Helix model, and I've found that in a typical session I become erect within a few minutes of use and stay that way for a good 30 minutes or so. I guess I would characterize these erections as stronger or fuller than usual too. I haven't really thought much to compare.

    But once I become flaccid again, I tend to stay that way for at least another 30 minutes or perhaps the remainder of the session (not that it makes much difference either way). Over all, I find it easier to become and remain erect with the Helix as opposed to the Classic model (which is similiar to the MGX model). Although, I have no idea why. I can only specualte it has something to do with the difference in design.

    So, although I have no medical concept of why this changed for me, I do think that this effect might be altered according to which design you're using, or perhaps even from simply becoming more accustomed to its use.

    Hope that helps.

    Thanks for the replies guys. :) I just had a really great session, SO close, at least I think so. :) I decided to watch some porn and put on some nice music this time, neither of which I had done before.

    I ended up laying mostly on my back, with my legs spread out. This was the first time I actually got to experience the involuntaries! Wow, they felt really good! A couple of times it felt like it was building up to something, but I think I paid too much attention to it and that feeling went away. I did get several nice erections though, but of course it didn't really seem to make a difference one way or the other. The only thing is, the involuntaries only happened when I was holding a contraction. If I relaxed, they went away. Is that normal? This gets pretty tiring after not too long. Do you have to keep holding a contraction the whole time in order to have a super O?

    After about 1.5 hours, I decided to just jerk off. I had almost no problem getting really hard. I think the porn helped a lot here, and also the fact that I didn't let myself get really worn out, as I have done on past occasions.

    Oh by the way, I've never had any pre-cum or prostate fluid, or anything come out during a session. That's a bit weird I guess.

    I have the same situation with my erections. I can be totally hard while looking at porn or just playing with myself, but as soon as I insert my aneros my hard-on goes limp. Like wise when I extract the aneros, again there doesn't seem any problem getting hard again. I am learning so many new things while using the Aneros Stimulator. Eventually I think my cock will start to get hard the further involved and experienced I become. I'll just enjoy all the pleasures I'm experiencing now....later....h
