NOT VERY SATISFIED
  • I PURCHASED AN ANEROS ABOUT 6 WEEKS AGO AND HAVE NOT HAD MUCH LUCK USING IT. I HAVE NOT HAD ANY TYPE OF ORGASM. I'VE READ ALL INSTRUCTIONS AND FOLLOWED THEM . I DON'T KNOW WHAT ELSE TO DO. CAN SOMEONE GIVE ME SOME ADVICE?
  • I don't know much about this as I am new, too. But here's what I know so far. . .

    You have to remember that the "instructions" are more like "suggestions". I don't think there's a magic formula. It's not like a penile orgasm where, with enough stimulation, you can get off.

    Patience is key. Don't try to "will" yourself to the pleasure. Let it come to you. Relax. Focus. Direct your control to holding a contraction still as long as you possibly can. It will take time - it may be an hour before you feel anything. Once you do, though, then you'll start making headway.

    Don't give up.

    Very true words, very good suggestions!
  • You know, after re-reading my post, I'd like to make a slight correction.

    I said that it wasn't like a penile orgasm, but I could be amiss. "Jerking-off" has become second nature to most of us. We are familiar enough with those specific pleasure sensors that we can get from unzip to clean-up in record time. But that wasn't always so. Before any of us had our first penile orgasm, we had no idea what it felt like. Others may have told us "Oh, it feels like this or that...", but at a rudimentary level, we had no clue what to expect. We had to "experiment" until we found the combination. We played with ourselves until we felt something good and then worked on reproducing those sensations and lengthening their duration.

    The Aneros is much the same way. You didn't give up then. Don't give up now.

    Have you read the WIKI?

    This I can heartily agree with.

    I fully understand where you are coming from Tannned. I am only a couple of months into my journey / rewiring. For the longest time I did not fell much. I did all the reading, I has envious of the guys recanting their stories.I was starting to think this is all a bunch of bull s**t. Its been only in the last two weeks I have made real progress. I have been focusing on using my MGX or my Progasm every other day. I am getting involuntary contractions every ride. Once lastweek I think I was close to a super O, but not sure. Don't give up.

    I just got my helix. I have not gotten any pleasure from it and I can't believe I ever will. I get a feeling of fullness, my scrotum tightens a little, no erection or partial erection, no pre cum. If I push it in further with my hands, I do hit a spot, but it doesn't feel pleasureable. I can't picture it getting better. I'm not real happy right now.

    GUYS!

    PLEASE! Have a little patience. Aneros joy, in the vast majority of cases, does not come easy or early. It often takes weeks if not months of practice, patience and relaxation to begin to get results. Patience.

    As the_Bishop asks: Have you read the WIKI or the stickies at the top of the forum page? Your posts suggest that you have not.

    Rome wasn't built in a day, fellas. Anersos expertise takes time, too.

    But please don't give up. Believe me, and it took me months to get there, the results will be worth the effort.

    This is the umpteenth time I or one of the other Anerosians on the forum have answered this same post. And for the umpteenth time, I'll say it. THIS TAKES TIME.

    Put it in, realize that it doesn't always evoke pleasure, try again.

    Repeat.

  • I fully agree with Cockadoodle. Here's the statement. I"M NOT HAPPY/SATISFIED! Umm...okay! We hear ya brothers! I'm not happy with taxes! I have to face the facts about them though. Either they get paid, or bad things happen via the government's imagination. Trust me, Aneros works the way it works. It's like a Magic Eye 3-D puzzle/picture. The image seems complete nonsense. People tell you how to focus your eyes. Relax. Don't try to see the image to see the image. In the end, one can easily feel like the fat guy in Mallrats. Stuck for days trying to see the sailboat.

    I have a suggestion. Maybe it's been said before. Maybe not. Why don't we all just try to have fun? You know what I like best about masturbation? Be it penile or prostate, it's all about me! How utterly selfish and delightful! When I take the time out for me, no matter what happens, I feel good about myself. Sometimes I'll set up candles, soft music, etc... and treat it more like self-love. Other times I watch porn or whatever. No matter what though, I enjoy me. I'm having fun! That's why I do it.

    Some may say that the Super-O is the ultimate goal, and it's fantastic, and it's all that and a bag of Cool Ranch Doritos. I'll agree that it's a blast. It really is. It feels fantastic. But I enjoy the process of getting there. I have fun. I prep in the shower. I enjoy the slight pleasures from lubing up. Guess what? I enjoy it!

    I have dud sessions. No doubt. I have disappointments as far as what I feel. Sure. The thing I don't do though is sulk, get in a funk about it, put pressure on myself, or vent frustrations and projects those onto the device not working. Bottom line fellas, the way I see it, the piece of plastic is the piece of plastic. It cannot physically do things we do not make it do. It's like a hammer. That hammer is meant to drive the nail into the wall. That's its purpose. However, if I cannot aim it right, use enough force, or any other combination of factors that prohibit the hammer for working, guess where that nail ends up. It'll drop to the floor the instant I let go of it. That won't stop me from trying again.

    Everyone, take a deep breath. Ask yourself why you are doing this. What's your reason? When I feel pleasure throughout my body, it's like taking a drink of water. I feel refreshed. I feel satisfied. I feel . . . full. I want for nothing in those few moments. I live it fully. Maybe there is a hobby or something that others can relate to like that. Those who are not satisfied, or unhappy, disappointed, ect... what thing brings you genuine joy and satisfaction? Why is that? What's your mentality towards that act/hobby/whatever... Is there anyway to incorporate that mental mindset and feeling towards Aneros practices? Frustrations will occur at first. However, aren't the best things in life worth trying for? And trying for? As far as personal physical pleasures go, I'm not sure you can do any better than Aneros. The greatest thing about Aneros, it's not all about the sexual pleasure. It's about completely learning oneself all over again.

    So, ask yourself this question in the mirror. Hello, fine looking, handsome, dashing, sexy man looking back at me. How are you today? What would you like to do today? In other words, get to know yourself. Then enjoy yourself! This isn't about Aneros guys, it's about you!

    Wow rikaaim,

    Damn well said !!!

    One point I've learned in my spirituality readings is that "perfection" is so limiting. If one defines the Super-O as the "perfect" achievement, then there's nothing more beyond that.

    I managed my first S-O in my 44th week of this journey, a date that I'll remember for the rest of my life -- I had looked at the S-O as the top rung on the ladder. Sort of a snapshot of infinity. How wrong I'd been. Turns out it was a door to other feelings and ventures. Every trip there is like entering a Baskin-Robbins...familiar delights abound but there are always a couple of 'surprise flavors.' Sort of a delicious acid trip but all of the side-effects are good. The difficult thing is to gather some of those vistas and briing them back to my everyday being.

    Shame we don't have Arctic Wolves here to clearly state the importance of not discounting what you don't have.

    Hello Folks, :)

    All excellent advice from Cockadoodle, Rikaaim, and Rook.

    Now let me give you some perspective...
    I've been at this for about 3.5 years with many many sessions under my belt, and still no super-O. Still upset with your progress?
    How about my first 1.5 years I basically had no pleasurable results? That doesn't mean that this will be your experience. But as I understand it, only a small minority of guys attain super-O within a months time of first trying these devices. So if that's not you, and you're still interested in trying. Then be prepared to let go of your anger and frustration, practice regularly regardless of results, and not make any expectations of your sessions.

    Early on in my Aneros journey when I was not experiencing any results, I too was quite angry as I thought I had wasted my money on a scam. But I did not voice that. I wasn't even a member of the Aneros forums then. Thankfully I didn't throw it away. And I'm glad I didn't. As there was nothing wrong with the Helix I had bought. It just took my body/mind a while to adjust, grow, and re-wire enough to feel pleasure out of it. Thus encouraging and motivating me to practice it regularly. Keep in mind, this experience and the sensations that go along with it are quite different from the penile centered pleasure that we men are accustomed to.

    As it stands now, I get wonderful pleasure from my sessions regardless of not having achieved super-O's. And have even been teased with having experienced a mini-O a little while back that I've since been unable to reproduce. There's frustration for you! LOL

    This journey takes time. Be patient and practice.
