Help me decide what to get.
  • Next month I'm either going to get a Helix Classic or a Venus Real. I already own most of the Aneros line, including a Helix Syn. How much different feeling is the classic Helix compared to the Syn? Please describe. Now, about the Venus Real. TOMAX makes, in my opinion, the best masturbators. I own a couple of those too (and ruined two Lilith Uterus by using coconut oil with it), but I haven't gotten to the Venus series because they're a little more expensive. Here's my dilemma. I love Aneros and TOMAX equally. I use them with the same frequency (not at the same time). They're both the same price, and for over a week I can't decide which one I'm going to buy next. I'd just buy both, but money is tight. Help? 

    Happy Easter, BTW.

    @Wandering_Smoke, hey welcome back, long time no see.  I have the eupho and eupho syn if this helps.  The eupho syn is a little more mobile and much softer inside and out.  I feel the syn models are better then the classic's, my opinion though.  Not much into realistic masturbators myself, so can really help there either.  If you own that many aneros devices, then personally I dont think the helix classic is going to offer anything new and astounding.  Hope that helps.
  • Hi @ineverknew. It has been a while. I've completely turned my life upside down since last time I was here. Quit smoking, drinking, and I'm trying to eat healthier. I've lived most of my life eating frozen food, almost exclusively. Most of that being pizza. The pots and pans I have are old, cheap (dollar store cheap), and flaking tefflon, so a large chunk of next month's cash is going to a new set. Professional grade.

    Anyways, yeah, the Syn's are very comfortable, but each Aneros has a unique personality. Nowadays I pretty much instinctively know which model I'm going to like best for that session. There seems to be more of a difference between the shape of the classic Helix and Syn, vs the Euphos'. I think having a rounder business end might be better on some days. To me, it seems like it would give stronger stimulation than the Syn, without being as...fully aggressive as the Maximus. And, since the head is a little rounder, it seems like it would still be pretty comfortable.

    @Wandering_Smoke, wow,congratulations!  Sounds like you've done some serious life style changes.  I know how hard that stuff can be, but so rewarding in the end.  I've been quit smoking for a year now myself.  Keep up the good work!
  • @ineverknew Thank you. It's been about two months now, and It was surprisingly easy. I already hated drinking. The thought of beer actually made me a little nauseous. For smoking...I piggybacked quitting on top of the worst panic attack of my life. Cumulative stress caused by smoking pot, hit me like a freight train when I recognised where it was coming from and quit. I had only started smoking it regularly for about three weeks prior. I won't get in to much detail here, but the stress was uncontrollable for about two weeks. During that time I didn't have any cravings for a cigarette. Now I might get a craving after I eat, but it only lasts a second or two. Now I'm finally normal again stress wise, and physically feeling better than I have in years. 

    Congratulations to you too for quitting smoking.

    For what it's worth, @Wandering_Smoke, look at the new ceramic coated cookware, like the O'Greenic, Stainless (either sandwiched Al or Cu in base, or copper-clad, like the All-Clad), or cast iron (and buy American-made; they're not all that much more expensive, but the quality is better and the maintenance is really cheap for stuff you use daily - just wipe it clean and re-apply olive oil in the pan).
  • Thanks @Badger, I'll look in to that. How durable are the ceramic ones? I narrowed my Amazon search to professional grade nonstick stuff. Here is what I plan on getting unless there is something better that doesn't cost much more. I can go about $50 more.

    @Wandering_Smoke, I really don't know; a local TV station tried them out, and stuff really didn't stick to them, which was pretty amazing. On their commericals, they show someone beating one into a clamshell, and the coating didn't seem to craze or fall off. But that was the O'Greenic pan set, which seems to be either $99, or $149. A fairly reasonable price if they're as good as they say.

    My gripe is that they only sell a couple of the skillets separately; I'm in need of a saucepan, as well as my dad, who makes peanut brittle during the winter months, and a pan like that would be quite a boon.
  • @Badger, I looked up Orgreenic on Amazon and they got some really bad reviews. Then I looked up PFOA free nonstick, and I see alot of fake reviews for stoneware pans (Stone Earth Pan by Ozeri). So, I'll really have to dig if I want to find a good ceramic or stone pan. For now I'm just going to buy that T-fal set. 

    Oh man, my grandpa used to make great peanut brittle around christmas. You're lucky. Buy your dad a good pan ^^ 

    Back on topic.
    After much thinking I have decided to get the Helix Classic. I'll never have to buy another one, and I'm happy with the TOMAXs' I have. ...For another month anyway ;)
