Helix and other new products
  • At this point, Aneros Helix is available only as one of the items of the Helix Holiday Special package, which is incovenient for those who want to buy just Helix.

    In Japan, Helix and other new products became available recently.

    http://www.bii.ne.jp/pines/enemagra/

    I am wondering whether these products will eventually be available in the US. I am also wondering how much current Aneros users are interested in trying these new products. Any comment on these new products?

    I have bought both the Aneros MGX and SGX via the website. And now I read about this Aneros Helix. How much do I have to pay for this new Helix? Any discount for me, an Aneros user for over 2 years?

    Yes, they are giving a 25% discount for current users through the month of January. The details are on the home page. The MGX is working so well for me I've decided I don't really need the Helix model, unless the user reviews on it prove to be incredible : )

    What does the helix do different or better than the MGX?
    I notice the tapered end to create the movement by contraction of the sphincter is not as tapered on the helix and it appears that it is supposed to sit stationary rather than slide up and down.

    Any instructions or description on the helix anywhere?

    cheers, Jero

    Jero,

    To the contrary, the Helix is quite mobile. I find that it affords a delightfully snug sensation against the prostate in a somewhat different manner than does the MGX.

    I'll have full review of this and the other Next Gen units coming up shortly. (I'll be reviewing ALL of the current production Aneros models from the SGX to the Eupho).

    Look forward to your comments at earliest notice as I am ready to make my next purchase.

    I understand the mechanics (rocket scientist here) and have experienced anal orgasms with ordinary dildos so I know what to expect. (can give advice if desired)
    With the new models out I am curious to try the latest and hottest.

    Again, look forward to your test drive report

    So, the Helix is not available at the dealers yet, I guess Aneros wants to get as much profit out of the unit before letting the retailers get it, a great way to ewncourage dealer support, of course Aneros will state that there is some other reason for this, packaging, advertising etc etc..in the meantime putting an extra 40 points in their jeans.

    Gee wiz Geezer, that's a mightie cynical attitude! First, I must say that I've had my Aneros (original MGX) for about a year and a half. It took me about 9 months to start seeing results that were consistent with what some of the other users have written about (and I'm still learning). But man, has it been worth it. Personally, I've spent far more for an evening of a dinner and the movies (and often times it's no where near as satisfying....depending on the movie, :) ).

    Anyways, where I come from on it is that I don't begrudge the manufacturer profiting from the sale of device. Why should anybody? They've got a great product and they're marketing it in the way that they see fit. Besides, from what I understand they've even offered the New Line products at a discount for previous customers, which may perhaps explain why they want to sell the product exclusively before the full release.

    I don't know what your level of success is with the device (I've not read any of your previous posts yet), although your comments seem to indicate that you're less than enthused. If this is so, and you still have a desire for progress with the Aneros, I might suggest that you spend less time concerned with all of this negative stuff. One of the things that I discovered when I was struggling, was that I really had to be invested in my success. I guess I'm talking about having a positive attitude. It's really critical. Oh yeah and patience, patience, patience.

    Just my two cents

    I dont begrudge the mfr a profit in fact i encourage it however the dealer network is where the long term benifits come from in marketing and if I were a dealer I would be really dissapointed in not getting in on the initial hype and sales .
    I have both sgx and mx enjoy both immensly and look forward to purchasing the helix from my local retailer.

    Hi guess you are maxed out on your cards like me from Christmas.
    Feel that your question deserves a reply and no one has done so. Sure there are benefits for a younger user. The device provides stimulation to two very sensitive areas, the prostate and the anus. You may not be into being stimulated anally, but it is a different trip that may really get you off. You may be squeemish about putting something up your a--, but if you are excited enough, you will probably find it different and a new sensation. In my experience, there are guys who really get off to penetration of the anal area, and those who are completly turned off. Maybe you get the idea that its just for \"older folks\", but there are plenty of young men who enjoy anal stimulation, and are not gay. I think its just the \"older people\" who are willing to really give the Aneros a chance, because they have tried a lot of other things because routine sex becomes common place and they want to try everything that can improve the experience.
    Why not start young, give it a chance, don't give up after 2 or 3 tries; and go slow with it if anal penetration is new to you. Its a nice toy to play with. Are you foreign to anal exploration?

    Hey... I just got a link to this site a few days ago in a gay chat room, and it appears that there's more straight people that own these things than gay guys.

    Not that that's a bad thing, but it just makes me wonder why there are so few (actually I haven't seen one) testimonial or forum posting by specifically gay men.

    Maybe it's just because the straighy guys feel weird about putting something up there and think people will belittle them for it...


    Anyways.... I've read through the guarantee and I think I'm sold.

    What dildo can you buy that they promise you will give you pleasure, and if it doesn't make you really happy after a few months, will give you your money back?

    I worked at a porn shop in West Hollywood when I moved to LA (because they hired me... don't look at me like that....) And really wanted a UR3 Raging Hard-Onz from Doc Johnson, but I like things that vibrate. I also wanted a suction cup on it so I could just slap it on the shower wall and let it go...


    The aneros... hands free operation.... Really? I understand the muscle contractions moving it and stuff, but it doesn't make sense how it moves in and out. Is the in and out stuff necessary, or is this thing doing something better than that?

    *sighs* I should just break down and buy one.

    Need to talk to my boss about getting a raise (not at the porn shop any more... or else I'd see if they could get me one with a discount:-p)

    OH! one more thing... I know they recomend ID Glide...

    Has anyone used a Silicone based lube with this thing? Do you know they make silicon based lubes? :-D

    Before I started working there, I used KY liquid religiously. It's cheap... works...

    But when I got to the toy shop they had samples of lube out for you to test (ON YOUR FINGERS! Sickos :-P)

    The silicon based lubes don't dry out... you just use a small dab of it and it'll go for hours. Condom safe, unlike oil based, doesn't dry out, like water based...

    The only downside is that you have to use soap to clean it up, and some of them stain sheets (looks like a grease stain... usually hand shaped, though your experiences may vary...)

    When I read the thread about sleeping with the Aneros in, they said to use lots of lube... I was thinking this might be a better solution...

    Yeah... silicone based stuff costs a little more, but you'll end up using less of it (especially if you re-apply a few times per session...)

    Recomendations; JO System, Gun Oil (silicone based... with ALOE!)
    Other stuff... ID Milenium, Wet Platinum, etc...etc....

    JO uses different isotopes, claims it doesn stain(though consensus on this differs... I think it depends on the kind of laundry detergent you use and how much you cram into a washer... college kid... stuff that thing so full it barely runs because it's cheaper and the stuff gets clean... enough...), and other fun stuff... Gun Oil is generally cheaper than ID or Wet, and has aloe in it.

    Anyways... since age came up... I'm 23 (just turned 23, so if someone still wants to get me one of these as a late b-day present....) Have been out since I was... almost 19, and have only had 2 boyfriends. Right now I'm busy with work and stuff, and don't have the time to go out, drama, etc... and think this might be the best solution for me... maybe even permemantly........

    Alright... I think that's long enough for a first post... I'll shut up now.

    I guess feedback saying how good this thing is would be great...

    and a few people with negative experiences.... how long did you try to get this to work before you gave up and sent it back? I think the longest I've seen is the 5th time using it before it really started working. I still have times when I don't do so well with my vibrating dildo :-/

    Thanks again,
    Kalash

    Alright... I broke down and ordered a helix.

    All I have on hand is some System JO silicon based lube... so you'll get a review of that in a few days... or weeks. I was still cheap... 5 buisness days... And there's a weekend in there :(

    Ah well.

    I'd still like answers to those questions. :D

    Later,

    Hi Kalash
    Welcome to the Aneros.
    I doub't you will be disappointed, I use the MGX, would like to try the Helix at some point.
    The lube problem has been discussed many times, I believe KY came tops.
    See the Bee-Line. Have fun.

    I dont know if its safe to use silicone based lubes anally. May get absorbed and then you are in trouble because the body doesnt have any way to dispose of it.

    Yes, you'll be VERY happy, but unless a miracle happens, you wont get super-O results immediately. Give it lots of time, and listen to your body.

    Welcome here, and yeah I'm straight and doing this after many years of thinking about it and hesitating. Having to overcome this taboo is hard.

    What gay chat room, by the way? Can you email me fleshjoe at fleshjoe dot com?

    Thanks!

    Joe... no problems with silicon based lubes so far....

    Check the beeline - Lubrication posting...


    I think I went a little over board with it...


    Taboo? Stuff in your but is taboo? Bah... :-P

    I honestly don't know what I'm expecting. I've really only been really happy with one thing inside me, and we broke up about 2 years ago. I dunno... I just can't get to it myself :-/

    On the bright side, I have the patience of a rock.... so I should be fine :D

    And... someone really needs to turn the smiley faces on on this page or I'm gonna go crazy......

    Right.... Well... if the video gets leaked to me I toss it up on a tracker and post the bittorrent link in here. Should be reasonably safe... most people don't know what a bittorrent is, and as long as the link doesn't leave this site it won't be spread all over (you can't search for a bittorrent by connecting to a network like WinMX, Limewire, Napster, etc... each link is created by the person with the file, then whoever clicks on it is able to d/l the file.) If I get it I'll go over that a bit more when i get the link up.

    If I'm not told to not put the link up...

    Anyway...

    Check out the rambling I did in the bee line. I used to swear by KY liquid, now I won't touch that stuff.

    Later,
