Helix - Round One Feedback

    Well, I found a Helix and purchased it yesterday and tried it out for the first time in the evening.

    The insertion was easier than I expected. Kind of uncomfortable but I recall someone posting that you actually have to kind of push out while inserting it (counter intuitive, but it works...) It felt OK and almost comfortable when inside. I recall wondering if what I was feeling compares to how women feel when having intercourse - having something inside of them.

    I then relaxed for 20 or so minutes without moving much at all. After that I tried different positions and slight contractions. I did not get hard or excited much. After about 1/2 hour I got semi-erect. I was not feeling any of the tickling or "itch you can't scratch" sensations at all. Not bad, not good. I was trying to just relax.

    After that I tried possibly pushing it in further but realized it was in all the way. Still not much of anything happening.

    At about the 1 hour point I know I did not have much time left before I had to get ready to go out for the evening. I decided to see if I could get aroused in the traditional fashion, even though everyone writes that you need to re-wire and should not manually stimulate yourself. I figure my main reason for using this will be to enhance intercourse as a couple, so I was a bit curious to see how it worked in an excited state. I do realize I was probably jumping in too soon, and I knew it, but I was curious. I started to masturbate.

    I did get erect and it was a typical very hard erection. As I got more aroused I felt the slightest of difference inside, and I remember thinking that maybe that could be the very beginnings of a tingling sensation. But it was not consistent and not getting any more powerful at all.

    I probably did this for 10-15 minutes and decided to go for it for no other reason that to see what would happen, if anything. So as I was building up to climax my body naturally got tighter and the Helix was being pulled into me further all by itself. I could feel pressure on my prostate inside too. When I went past the point of no return and was coming the Helix kind of moved in and out of me (slightly) with the spasms. I think it was actually blocking the internal passages at times also, which kind of makes sense if the Helix was pressing and releasing against the pathways inside me. There was no precum at all, no milking. I ejaculated about as much as I typically do. It felt good to come, a bit stranger than normal with a few more sensations thrown in as I was feeling various pressures inside of my body also.

    I then jumped in the shower and took it out. No mess at all - I had expected otherwise so I was glad about that.

    Maybe I needed more time, more meditation, or practice. Not sure. I will try again. As I have read, it is a slow process of learning and rewiring. I have some homework to do I guess.

    It takes some time and practice for a lot of men. See my recent posts to "A Little Guidance Please". It's well worth the practice.

    Yes, you definitely need more time. Next time, have your aneros session when you do not have to be somewhere and you do not feel rushed. You will feel more relaxed and may get better results. The helix in my opinion, is the best model aneros has. I have tried the MGX and the progasm, and while both are good models, they don't give me the intense orgasms as the helix does.

    Its hard to relax, because traditional methods to reaching climax means you have to tense up and give more stimulation. In the aneros, you need to relax your muscles and let it take over. I feel that if I let go and feel it slide up further and hit the prostate, I will then start to spasm and shake and have dry multiple orgasms over and over and over. The pleasure is so intense, especially as I increase the contractions and the tab is pressing my perineum the orgasms become more intense and I find myself involuntary shouting out and moaning loud. These dry orgasms can last up to 5 minutes long in duration. That's 5 minutes of orgasming non-stop. It is absolute heaven to be laying there shaking in the most pleasureable state for 5 whole minutes of uninterrupted pleasure. It is therapuetic and is the best stress reliever I have ever had. It is so good! After 5 or 6 dry orgasms, then I explode to a huge ejaculatory orgasm with cum flying everywhere that is the best orgasm of all the others. Then I am spent and can't move for the next 10 minutes trying to recover from the best orgasms of my life.

    It is a very intense experience. You will get the most out of it trying it out on yourself first, learning how it works and treating a night to yourself of ecstacy. Then it will make it all the more intense when you try it with a partner. Don't give up. The helix creates the most intense orgasmic pleasure that every male should experience in his lifetime.

    Well, last night (Friday) was my second experience with the Helix. I had nothing else scheduled so that gave me many hours to experiment (if needed.) My primary purpose will be to use the Helix with my partner; to heighten our intercourse and oral sex sessions. It had been about five days since I had sex with my gf. I wanted to be in an increased state of arousal prior to Friday's Round Two, as I think it makes sense to be more sexually aware with desire, etc... for better (easier?) results. Is this a true assumption?

    On Thursday night I did fantasize and masturbate for some time looking at Playboy and thinking about my partner, etc, but did not climax or ejaculate. I was definitely in a state of arousal after that, and all day Friday in anticipation of Friday night. Friday night I "prepared" by continuing my fantasy/masturbation and watched a video prior to my session - for arousal only. No climax or ejaculation.

    I then relaxed for some time in bed practicing breathing. Insertion was easy (I use Sliquid Organics Silk lube - all natural and Vegan ingredients.) I turned off the lights, lay on my side, and continued breathing exercises. After 30 minutes I changed positions and was on my back. I started doing contraction exercises (shallow) and tried to focus on the prostate region of my body. I performed all kinds of contraction exercises on my sides, back, kneeling, standing for about 90 minutes.

    During that time, once very early in the process and twice later on (near each other) when I was concentrating very deeply and relaxed (if that is possible), when I was fantasizing a certain way, I think I felt the beginnings of sensations in that region of my body. What I felt was very, very tiny almost automatic contractions of the Helix and I have no idea what to call the sensation (that was happening at the same time as the "mini" contractions) other than like a "white noise", maybe a wave, but it was so slight I have no idea how to describe it. It only lasted for about 1-2 seconds. It felt like it wanted to radiate out from my prostate; once it seemed to go to one leg too with a slight twitch. I am curious if this sounds like I am on the right track here.

    I have heard other say the feelings you get are like the very beginnings of an orgasm. This felt like the very beginnings of the beginnings... It is very hard to tell if this was anything at all as it was so fleeting in nature. And I could not seem to encourage it or grab it... if you can understand what I mean. It was there and then gone very quickly.

    After I did not feel another sensation for about 30 minutes I ended my session. So I basically had about 6 seconds of possibly something during almost two hours.

    This time when I took the Helix out (in the shower) it was somewhat dirty. That did not happen the first time, and was a little off-putting, but understandable.

    The other thing I am curious about is what should I be feeling inside my body? I feel the Helix at the sphincter of course, but I really don't feel much inside of me. Should I be feeling a strong pressure inside when the Helix is rubbing against my prostate? I am not sure I am feeling that at all.

    Any feedback on the above is much appreciated.

    Excellent choice of lube! You've done your research!!:wink:
    Great start!:D

    Nice, nothing like getting more comfortable. Good job on listening to your body.:idea::!:

    Ooops, you went wrong here you were TRYING and FORCING things to happen. Not good. Nothing will happen if you go this route. You cannot force these contractions. The contractions will come to you in very slight, subtle, minimal sensations at the beginning (Very easy to miss).:evil::cry:

    You see what I mean??:o:shock::P During this process you were RELAXED and not trying to force anything to happen. This is exactly what you want! Continue this and you'll be having the time of your life in no time. Those sensations are amazing, are they not?

    Did you FORCE any contractions during this phase? Were you more relaxed on fantasizing? (It's all about "Mind Tricks")

    Be very careful with what you read or hear. Sure it feels like that because that's the only thing we can relate with. It's something different and much deeper which makes it feel much more pleasing.

    I completely understand what you mean. Yeah it feels like it's the beginning of something better to come. Yes, at the beginning no sooner does it come it's gone and the sensation is so slight that you can EASILY miss it!!:( :cry: Unfortunately, TRY as you might it will just elude you even more. You can't grab it, you can't chase it, you can't bag it. Only thing you can do is RELAX and focus on any slight sensations, as you did, to get that really awesome feeling you felt. This will turn into something if you allow your body to SURRENDER to the device and not force a thing.:idea::!::wink:

    You sure did have something. Too bad you TRIED to grab it and force it.:( I bet those 6 seconds felt quite interesting though.:) Let your body surrender and these will surely come back if you aren't TRYING, FORCING, GRABBING, etc... 8)

    As the old saying goes: "Curiosity Killed the Cat"

    Do NOT fall into this trap of what you SHOULD be feeling because you are setting yourself up for failure if you're TRYING to shoot for a goal. What you feel is UNIQUE to you and you only. What you felt during those 6 seconds is EXACTLY what's working for you!! Now don't chase these feelings or sensations and you'll go very far!

    I am very surprised how far you've progressed in only 2 sessions!!!

    Congratulations man!! Keep up the great work you're doing at "listening to your body" and don't give up. Treasure and adore any feelings and/or sensations you have. Most importantly, have fun.:twisted:

    Good Luck!

    AW,

    -- Many thanks for the feedback... it sounds like I might be onto something here if what I describe is truly "the beginning."

    Ooops, you went wrong here you were TRYING and FORCING things to happen. Not good. Nothing will happen if you go this route. You cannot force these contractions. The contractions will come to you in very slight, subtle, minimal sensations at the beginning (Very easy to miss)

    -- That is exactly how it felt; there and gone. Easy to miss.

    You see what I mean??:o:shock::P During this process you were RELAXED and not trying to force anything to happen. This is exactly what you want! Continue this and you'll be having the time of your life in no time. Those sensations are amazing, are they not?

    -- OK. I will just "let it happen."

    Did you FORCE any contractions during this phase? Were you more relaxed on fantasizing? (It's all about "Mind Tricks")

    -- When I felt the sensations I was actually concentrating on particular parts of the fantasy that were really intense and kind of beautiful. I may have been also contracting very gently, but I really think the contractions happened on their own. I remember being aware of it moving very lightly on it's own inside of me while I was trying to stay in the fantasy - which was hard to do. The movements were barley perceptible though.

    Be very careful with what you read or hear. Sure it feels like that because that's the only thing we can relate with. It's something different and much deeper which makes it feel much more pleasing.


    -- I will try and keep an open mind to the sensations and not relate them to anything. I also agree that the slight thing that I did feel was really a deeper sensation, almost euphoric. This is also why it was hard to concentrate on the fantasy.

    I completely understand what you mean. Yeah it feels like it's the beginning of something better to come. Yes, at the beginning no sooner does it come it's gone and the sensation is so slight that you can EASILY miss it!!

    -- OK. At least I know I might be on the right track here...

    Unfortunately, TRY as you might it will just elude you even more. You can't grab it, you can't chase it, you can't bag it. Only thing you can do is RELAX and focus on any slight sensations, as you did, to get that really awesome feeling you felt. This will turn into something if you allow your body to SURRENDER to the device and not force a thing.

    -- So, do I "leave" the fantasy when I feel these sensations and concentrate on them? I was thinking that I "lost" them when I became aware of them and "tried" to focus on them.

    You sure did have something. Too bad you TRIED to grab it and force it.:( I bet those 6 seconds felt quite interesting though.:) Let your body surrender and these will surely come back if you aren't TRYING, FORCING, GRABBING, etc..

    -- The 6 seconds were very different, for sure. I remember thinking that I had never felt anything like that before... it was very pleasing (again, euphoric is the closest word I can think of...) and I wanted it to continue and get stronger. I will try and let go and relax.

    Do NOT fall into this trap of what you SHOULD be feeling because you are setting yourself up for failure if you're TRYING to shoot for a goal. What you feel is UNIQUE to you and you only. What you felt during those 6 seconds is EXACTLY what's working for you!! Now don't chase these feelings or sensations and you'll go very far!

    -- Will do!

    I am very surprised how far you've progressed in only 2 sessions!!!

    -- Thanks. Never thought 6 seconds of 120 minutes would ever be considered "progress." But I will take it.

    Congratulations man!! Keep up the great work you're doing at "listening to your body" and don't give up. Treasure and adore any feelings and/or sensations you have. Most importantly, have fun.

    -- Yup. Exactly. Thanks again.

    You'd be surprised how long it takes some others just to get those 6 seconds of awesome sensations. Some go for months without any success. So you're on the right track! You have a great attitude towards everything which is a recipe for your future success. 8)

    Excellent feedback AW.

    I am curious about this comment:

    Ooops, you went wrong here you were TRYING and FORCING things to happen. Not good. Nothing will happen if you go this route. You cannot force these contractions. The contractions will come to you in very slight, subtle, minimal sensations at the beginning (Very easy to miss).

    When the slight contractions what do you do then? What is the best course of action when that happens?
  • The_Bishop you let them come and pass. Enjoy them for what they are and if they pass let them go. They will come back trust me! At first, they only a last a very few seconds then the come back and each time the get stronger and stronger; but if you chase them they will be gone and never come back until you give in and surrender your body to the whole experience!

    CA,

    Sounds like your making great progress. Like the guys said, it's easy to miss the early signs of what your body is trying to tell you. From what I've found on here, most people are not able to identify them so quickly as you have. That is big progress. If I might suggest one thing though, you might try not to change positions too often...patience is key. You'll get there. As open and outgoing as you are...you'll love it. :wink:

    Enjoy!

    Lynn, as always, many thanks for your comments, and perspective here. It is invaluable IMO.

    Unfortunately it looks like it may be some time until my next practice session. I am thinking about bringing the Helix on the road with me during business trips, as that affords more alone time for practice. I don't want to deal with any nosy TSA inspectors though...

    One last detail I wanted to share. The day after my last session when my gf and I had sex, when I came (on her body this time) there was:

    - An increase in both the number of ejaculatory spasms I had; instead of 10 or so "squirts", this time it felt like it was about 15 in total. Which felt great.

    - A very noticeable increase in the amount of ejaculate, but it was more "watered down" (thinner viscosity) than normal. Both of us were actually pretty amazed by the quantity.

    So it looks like I must have been milking my prostate during the session the prior day. I recall reading this quantity increase might happen (and was hoping for it.) I take it as another good sign of progress, and a side benefit for us - as we were both turned-on by the amount produced.
