please comment on your breathing technique...
  • I'm interested in the different breathing techniques other aneros users use. I'm sure there are many methods, would someone care to share? Also, if you can reccomend a link to a youtube site showing an expample. Is there more to it then just breathing in and filling the belly and breating out? THanks guys!

    There is this video referenced in the Aneros WIKI and these related videos Breathing For Better Sex & Beneficial Breathing also from YouTube.

    Although I am not all that consistent, I do try to just do the deep relaxed valley breathing technique myself, with 4-5 breaths per minute.

    Hello healthyprostate, :)

    I'm not sure how much this will help you...
    But my breathing "technique" if you even want to call it that, is to make sure I am not holding my breath, but that I am also breathing enough to not feel tense. Mind you I haven't achieved super-O's yet. So take my own experience with a grain of salt. LOL

  • Similarly to what Love_is mentioned, I'd say that you shouldn't get caught up on a technique, breathing calmly is enough for me anyway. Or in other words, it's counter-productive if you need to draw your focus away from the Aneros sensations to try and control your breathing in some way.

    What I'm learning from my yoga experience is that the important issue is not a particular technique, but a free and easy movement of the diaphram. You would want to breath deeply with your belly and feel the breath opening, expanding and filling your belly. However tension, bad breathing habits etc tighten the muscles and the process becomes restricted. Through yoga and pranayama practice I've noticed a relaxing in my belly and lower abdomen that allows the breath to be deeper without as much effort. I don't think it's about moving any particular amount of air through the system, it's about the efficency and ease.

    When you're engaged in a sexual act, including the aneros, we often get wrapped up in the sensations and forget to breath. I would suggest that before getting too deep into an aneros or any sexual activity that you pause just long enough to find your breath and get it flowing deeply and effortlessly.

    Jack Johnston in KSMO has the best, easiest verbal coaching of breathing I've heard. Kelly Howell in her Meditation series runs a close second.
