First session with a Progasm
  • Got the Black Progasm today that I ordered on Thursday the 12th.  Definitely didn't expect it that fast using the standard USPS shipping. Pleasant surpise. Also received one of those little lube applicator syringes to try out.

    Comparing the Progasm to the Helix, I was wondering what I had gotten myself into. The size difference was more than I had expected. @-)  I didn't know for sure if it would fit or be comfortable. After a quick clean out, I applied a couple CCs of lube with my handy new applicator. I then lubed up the Progasm, laid down, and pressed it against my ass. After a little pressure, the first section slid in. Not too bad. Let myself adjust to that for a couple minutes, then pressed a bit further. The rest of it then got sucked in fairly easily. More than I expected, but enjoyed the fuller feeling better than the Helix.

    The rest of my session was spent enjoying the fuller feeling, and trying out various positions,contractions and breathing rhythms. Nothing outstanding to report as far as waves, auto contractions, mini-o's, or super-o's. But I did enjoy my manual contractions more than with the helix. Not sure if it was due to the added injected lube, the size of the Progasm, or both. I hope I have better luck with progressing further, but realize I may not have given the Helix as much effort as I should have. We'll see.

    I found that after having felt the fullness of the Progasm for several sessions, when I went back to the Helix I appreciated it a lot more, the relative subtlety of it. I still use my Progasm but it's a once-in-a-while kind of thing, whereas the Helix (classic and Syn versions) are close to daily for me.

    I would agree with Tairy--sometimes the Progasm leaves me kinda sore but the fullness is nice, too.
  • The motive of my getting Progasm Ice and Maximus was to have it feel like i imagine a cock up my ass would feel, and that is my fantasy when i use them.  Of course there is a nice guy attached to the cock, or it is attached to him i guess.  i have never had the real experience but think i would really like it.  I like all the models i have, which is almost all models.  Not fond of MGX my first because ridges at the anus irritate it, while others say they stimulate theres.  Just got the Vice that i call it the Vibe, and tried it for vibrator effect which i do like, especially highest vibe.  I once had a dildo before aneros that had a vibrator.  It is called rough boy or something boy.  It is curved with one end in the ass and the other hitting the perineum.  it was almost too much butt i somehow managed. lol  Helix has been one of my favorites if i can say i have any favs, but just recently got the HelixSyn which is even nicer.  Just got Tempo but haven't tried it yet.  I suspect i will no longer use nor need my set of 4 Peridise, butt the smaller ones are nice for a change.  The Tempo seems to be the size of the largest Peridise, just as the Vice is same size as Progasm, but of nice soft material as is HelixSyn.. The Progasm is the only model that slipped out of me with slick lube.  I have been using only Shea Butter and vaseline as lubes since i read about them.  I avoid lube with glycerin because of laxative effect, which is one of purposes of it, withness glycerin suppositories.  I also like the flexibility of Syn.  I'm not even going to remove the handle on that, just put pillow under lower back when on my back, so handle does not hit the bed and interfere with free movement.

    Hi paulsp
    I curled the tail back over the stem on the SYN so I have the advantage of the handle and the ease of lying on my back normally. Took a bit of patience and a Bosch temp controlled heat gun. I have done this to all my aneroses except the ICE, it was okay as is. I felt it was worth doing to the rest. Tempo should arrive tomorrow..

    isvara: You'll need a welding torch to modify the Tempo like that.  ;)

    Absolutely no need the tempo perfect in design.

    Try, try, try the doggy position with Progasm ! This was my second Progasm session (after a few months of Aneros abstinence) and it was very good. There may be some teeth marks on sheets and the pillow, though. A "frog" position also works. I can only imagine what will happen when my sensitivity increases once again.

    Airbag, can you post a photo of yourself in the "frog" position?  (Just kidding; it sounds like fun.)    :-)
  • I'm trying to remain motivated, but don't feel I'm making any progress.

    I mean like this:

    To clarify, I don't mean literally doggy, as in vaginal sex. Rather, from behind, and try various variants. The ones that work best for me is when my belly is almost on the bed, I support myself on my hands, knees apart and about at chest height. Sort of like the frog would look like if it wanted to bite the pillow.

    When you contract PC, you may feel as though it would be more pleasant to spread legs wider apart. That's not necessarily a good thing to do ! In my experience, it can be more pleasurable to leave your legs that way... it's teasing, and builds up arousal !

    Overall impressions with Progasm:
    - being fuller is nice
    - despite the claims, it doesn't feel very mobile, not comparing to Helix. And I tried heavily lubed with silicone lube
    - it's quite blunt, and that's not necessarily a good thing
    - I have to fiddle with position a bit more, although my newly discovered frog "from behind" worked like a charm. In fact, it saved a disappointing session. Don't bang your head on the wall, try different positions. I will try Helix in the same position in near future, but last time I checked I didn't have as much fun in it as with Progasm.
    - the ptab and ktab are really good for me, better than Helix, they hit me where it matters.

    Love the ptab and ktab, and wish other toys came similarly equipped.
  • Coming up on a month of Progasm use.  As some know,  I don't think I'm making much progress.  No P-waves, Invols, mini, or Super Os. A general "full" feeling,  but nothing I'd report as "pleasurable" either.  I also didn't get much of anything from Helix use last year either.

    I've been generally keeping to an every other day schedule or so.  Most will say I'm being impatient, and maybe I am,  but its hard to stay motivated to spend 1 to 2 hours a session with one of these over the course of a year or more, when I'm not seeming to make any progress.  

    Anyone else feel this way?  I would like to know if there are those that have spent that much time and still not felt much. But I don't imagine many will have stuck around on the Forums after not having success.

    CoasterRider,

    "I don't imagine many will have stuck around on the Forums after not having success" .    As a matter of fact there are experts that went a year or more before having a full-fledged Super O.  Darwin, one of our most respected members had a path that took him well over two years.   That said, every man's journey is his own.  You noted that you are presently on an every other day schedule.  One factor you may want to consider is your level of arousal.  Having a heightened level of arousal is an essential element for generating this response.  Many men have found it helpful to put some space between their sessions and allow some time for arousal to build.  Sometimes a day, just isn't enough.   This is particularly the case with users who end their sessions with ejaculations.  There is no specific formula for building the optimum amount of arousal, but in the past I have suggested looking to your pattern of traditional masturbation as a benchmark.  So if you have been an every other day kind of guy, double that  and wait two days.   Naturally adjust this to your taste, being careful not to wait too long either.   Remember, the idea is to amp up your arousal, not become sexually frustrated.

    Stay with it!

  • Well,  when I said schedule, I was just referring to my average I guess. I didn't really stick to a schedule,  just when I felt aroused or relaxed enough.  Sometimes I waited 1, 2, or 3 days in between sessions.  I did end most sessions at first with ejacs, but don't anymore. My traditional masturbation pattern would be every other day or so, sometimes daily. 

    I was also referring to users who may have spent a year or more but not had success not sticking around the Forums,  not those who had success after a year or more.  Of course those who've had success would stick around.

    I find success with the reverse of the frog position--head down, arse in the air. Sometimes I call it "mecca" although the local imam would be upset if he knew, I'm sure.

  • Today is my one month anniversary with the Progasm.  Too bad I'm still gasmless... :(

    It took me just over six weeks. I was speedy compared with most.
  • Finally made some progress after a month.  Waited 3 days since my last session and felt some pleasure in the prostate region. I could feel my pulse there and in my cock head at the same time, producing a raging erection, which eased and came back several times during the session. I didn't always get the pulsing sensation with each erection, but they felt damn good anyways. It wasn't much, but happy to at least feel something pleasurable after a month.

    Thanks to all who've offered advice and encouragement here and in the chat.  I probably would have given up like I did last year with my Helix.
