Should I re-curve the Helix to give it extra prostate contact?

    Hi,

    I have been here since forever (2008/9 feels like forever) and have not seen much progress. For a few months - a few months ago - I had involuntaries, but now they've stopped. I would love to even have precum flow out to show I am on the right track. Some physical manifestation of progress would be good. So far, I just have a gaped arse, AFAIK.

    I really am unsure if I've had prostate contact
    . I have probably, but can't say for sure. If you erect, on inserting it, is this Aneros-arousal or slight prostate contact - bearing in mind the porn video is on long before I insert the Aneros?

    I was thinking of heating the Helix to give it more of a curve in towards by prostate, coz I'm sure mine is somewhere up against my stomach, probably under my lungs, coz I just can't feel contact.

    I rubber-gloved up once and think I felt it (walnutty), so it's there somewhere. I wouldn't make it a complete C-shape, although I might need such drastic measures lol.

    Funnily, the perineal tab has never once bothered me. Either I am not inserting it enough (doubtful), or coz of my ethnicity or genes, I have a big arse, which makes the tab sit nicely. But could this be my problem?

    Yes, yes, porn is bad, images and the CD is better. I know, I know.

    If the p-tab has "never been a bother" it might help to pad the tab to the point where you feel some discomfort at the very start of a session.

    At the start of a Helix session I get distinctly separate feelings from the p-tab (outside) and prostate (helix head) contact (inside). As I relax and get my prostate into a 'trance' the two individual feelings blend into just a single area of pleasure. YMMV.

    Let us know how snugging up the tab works -- I'd guess you'll need a lot of padding.

    Relax sufficiently that you can feel Helix moving easily with just the force of your breathing. If that's not happening, take another look at prep and lube.

    Remember that the Helix is sensitive to body position and posture. I get more prostate contact from Helix when I'm on my stomach or half-way between a side and stomach position.

    Remember also that precum flow is going to be influenced mostly by Cowpers contact rather than prostate contact. However, once excited, you may get precum flow without either the prostate or Cowpers contact. From what I've read in the forum this is pretty individualized.

    My best position has been on my back, feet about 3 feet apart, and arms curled back to put my hands near my ears. I find this puts a little arch in the back which is really helpful.

    In my case, I was pretty unaware of my sweet spot for a long time. It learned sensitivity and now it's easy.

    Roger that, rook, on the sensations ultimately blending together. I suppose a lot of the "defying physiology" illusion at the heights comes from dual stimuli that we've "lost track of.". You know what I mean? When the feelings don't even make sense?!?, lol.

    It's all about awareness. The worst thing I was ever persuaded to do is modify the Aneros. The best way you can break thru the habit of penile awareness is by eating hash. But for now at least try to take your focus away from your penis and on your prostate. Sometimes just focussing on this area without any contractions whatsoever can set off dry orgasms. Later on you can use this awareness to apprehend that basically every cell in your body can be a 'sweat spot'.
    I used the Aneros for months, then I stopped for months and then tried with hash, this got me out of the box and into the multiorgasmic world. Sure, some have done it without, others(like myself), would have probably still been trying and still not have had the awareness needed.
  • Have you removed the curly tail, yet? If not, and before reshaping the perfectly shaped Helix, do that.

    Removing the tail makes Helix, hell, all models, work MUCH better IMHO. Much more mobility, much.

    Just wondering.

    Hello MyTurn, :)

    All these guys are spot on in their recommendations. Although the use of hash or marijuana as a shortcut(for some people) is a personal preference, assuming you are open minded and have access to it. But not necessary by any means. If you really absolutely feel the need to modify your Helix, then just remove the tail/handle. This is a minor and popular modification that will make it pivot in closer towards the prostate. See the following link:
    http://www.aneros.com/forum/f6/*how-much-handle-tail-did-you-cut-off-pics-11917/

    But I don't suspect that this will change what you feel. Like the others have said, it just a matter of time, regular practice, and experimentation before you start to feel prostate sensations. Be patient. It took me a long time, probably 2.5 to 3 years before I really started zero in on and feel, understand, and experience pleasurable prostate sensations.

    Yes, yes, porn is bad, images and the CD is better. I know, I know.

    I don't know who told you this. But that is just an opinion. If looking at a certain type of porn is what works for you, then go with it. Everyone's journey is entirely personal and distinctly their own.

    By the way...
    Do you practice nipple stimulation during your Aneros sessions? If not, I highly recommend you start doing so.

    I hope all this helps.

    Porn was actually a profound asset for me. By focusing on my eyes, my mind could more easily "leave the Aneros alone" to "do its own thing," and then I built a correspondence in which it seemed I was "feeling the arousal" within me, in a passive way, while the Aneros did the work and my mind stayed trained on the stimuli.

    So, obviously, though I think porn has its ins and outs (bwaha), I certainly don't believe it's "bad."

    Thanks guys.

    Rook - at least Cowper's gland "visual feedback" would show that something physically is happening. Progressing, even.

    Tremelo - That's my position. I put a doubley-folded pillow under the arch of my back.

    Helixer - I don't have access to drugs and the law if different here. I am not going to jail or getting a record for the Aneros. Also, the people who sell it here are not a decent bunch.

    Cockadoodle, Love_is - I am now considering that. Will the Aneros pivot inside better? I am concerned about where to HOLD the Aneros, because I have OCD. Anerosing is a pretty big step for me as it is. I need to be able to hold part of the Aneros that doesn't go up the arse. Fair enough, I used a lubed condom, but who knows if my model was used previously? Eww.

    Also, I need the safety of the flared end. I can't be going to A&E (ER) to get it removed from my arse. I guess there is always the Ptab to hold it by.

    I don't have tools to cut it tho, and I sure as hell don't want to break it.

    Hello MyTurn, :)


    Getting over that your anus is a dirty nasty place that you shouldn't be touching is one aspect of the Aneros journey that you have to get past before you can make more progress. This is a part of your own body. Love it like any other part of yourself. :) One good recommendation that I was given a while back was to explore your anus with your bare lubed finger prior to an Aneros session. Make friends with it! ;) LOL With that in mind...


    Will the Aneros pivot inside better?

    Again, yes it will. Will you notice a difference at this point in your journey? I don't think it's likely, but you never know. I did this mod early on in my Aneros journey before I got much if any prostate sensations, and didn't notice that it did much for me. Now that's it's been that way for so long, I have no idea how it compares to a stock Helix. Yes, this mod requires that you grasp the P-tab near the stem to insert and remove your Helix.
