    I thought I followed the instructions and have read up on it. But last night it only felt like something was up my butt.. Any suggestions. My girl and I were excited but after 45 minutes of nothing i took it out. :(

    Yeah, it took me a couple sessions to get over that "just up the butt" feeling. But only a couple. ;-)

    Oh really, ok... Well I was hoping it might take a few tries cuz after dropping 70 bucks on some plastic, I felt kind of ripped off, but hearing stories and seeing videos I know they work... Ok. Thanks.. I'll keep trying.. :) Any other advice?

    This forum is full of good advice, but from my own experience:

    I subjected myself to arousing stimuli (porn in my case, possibly your girlfriend in yours) and learned to focus on that, and feel the Aneros activity as my body's own arousal. Thus, it was easier to "surrender" to it and exert less control over it, which is an essential long-term skill in the Aneros adventure.

    After years of enjoying hardcore, I swiveled around quickly to striptease for the above experience. I.e., "slow simmering arousal." So maybe your girl could deliver a comparable tantalizing experience. I'd be envious!

    Yeah i did notice a lot more or a sensation if any when I completely surrendered to it and relaxed and she was touching me and such. Now I have read that some gyrate (for a lack of better words) pelvic area for movement of the Aneros. I attempted botah stationary as well as movement and "kagel" type movements. In you experience, what is the better way? Thanks for your input, no pun intended..:)
  • I actually managed to get some results during my first session. Definitely nothing spectacular but at least I could see that sth was working. I was pretty amazed when my abdominal muscles started to spazz and if you can focus on things like that you'll slowly climb up the later. And you should definitely keep in mind the word slowly ;)

    OK :) Now maybe I screwed up last night.. It got so intense before we tried the Aneros I had sex with her (TMI?) and already ejaculated and had an orgasm. .. Bad?

    mrock,

    Welcome to the Aneros Forums,

    Many new Aneros owners have reported similar initial experiences, perhaps reading "Nothing Happens" or some of the other threads linked there will help.

    Learning to use your Aneros effectively may require some solo time or at least a change of focus away from penile stimulation during partnered play time. I certainly would NOT classify time spent making love as "Bad", but like so many things in life, timing of activities is important to maximize benefits.

    P.S. I sent you an introductory PM with some additional hints and tips to get you started.

    Ultimately, I think relaxation/no control is the MUCH better way to go, but some muscle exercise helps one learn which muscles to relax and "let go of," so there's nothing wrong with "warming up" with some contractions and then relaxing to see where those muscles go.

    Ok, well tried again and I have been able to relax and literally not feel the Helix in me. I do get very few and very small sensations that seem like hey wanna go elsewhere, but have not been able to reach any significant sensations. Guess I'll keep trying.

    Dude, don't lose heart! I am in the same position as you, but I have been Anerosing for a LOT longer! I won't give up though.

    Enjoy Aneros in as many ways as you'd like but as rumel points out, solo sessions, with no distractions, are the better choice when you are on the journey toward a dry-O. I'd guess that rumel steered you to read cockadoodle's post titled, "Penis not." IMO, an essential read.

    This journey will start by, 1) training your brain about the pleasures hidden in your prostate; 2) developing subtle muscle memories (involuntaries) that will support and sustain these pleasures. Changing a golf swing takes a lot of trips to the range.

    Your little sensations show you're headed in the right direction. Try to not bury them under desires for ejaculation or traditional orgasm. Tremelo's point about varied and intense action with the Aneros can help you identify and group muscle actions in new ways. Don't expect heavy action to reveal what your brain would like to receive. You'll experience those revelations during your relaxed and quiet moments.

    @ Myturn.. LOL OKI won't. That little piece of plastic is expensive. I will keep on keeping on. LOL
    Rook, thanks for the words. I do feel something when I have done it both times and I agree it is something in the right direction, but nothing like what I am reading. I will try on my side more. I have read a lot of folks being on their side. Can't wait...
  • try on your side at first then when you start to feel things and it gets more intense turn to the belly... mmmmmm just make sure your girl ducks out the way when you start shaking. :P :D

    ArticWolves... Both attempts I was on my side.. Then after a while it got a bit uncomfortable. So I did turn over on my back.. OOPS.. OK tonight I shall try turning on my stomach..
    I won't give up.. nevvvaaaaaaahhhhhhh LOL
  • Yea don't give up man, once you find out what works for you and begin to focus on and play off the pleasurable (probably minute at this point) sensations that arise, each session will just continue to get better and better. I started I think around 2 months ago and while I found some pleasure in all of my sessions, things started to get a lot better good about a month in. It's all about relaxation, getting yourself to the point of extreme arousal, and knowing how to coax your body and prostate higher and higher...once you get a hang of what works for you, it becomes so much easier to progress. About a week and a half ago I started, and am continuing to have the most intense sessions unlike anything i've been having up to date! Absolutely love it.

    I am about to - fingers crossed - have my first session in about...a few months (I had one 2 weeks ago but fell asleep instantly, also, it was BEYOND unpleasureful, so...).

    I am not expecting anything great. Wish me luck though!

    Ok another attempt last night for about 45 minutes.. Attempted layingon my stomach and it did indeed help thefeeling. I also cntracted PC and sphincter msucles... I also felt a lot of sensation from this.. At times it felt like it was gonna take offffff, but it just plateaued, however I do see where it can go..:)
  • Wow, grats on the progress on man. Remember relax and let your body take you places it never has before. :) D
  • Mrock, I am having the same problems. I've tried twice, and all I get are itty bitty teeny sensations every now and then. Any advice?

    The only advice I can give, is read the stuff others have posted. It is good advice. Try on stomach and on back. Ihad some success and I mean some, but maybe it is beacuse it is new, but try the contraction of your PC muscles and anus. It helps a great deal and that is when I feel the most. I think it is a game of patience. Seems it is easy for some and more of a journey for others. I'm sticking with it.. Going for round 4 tonight. It seems I get father every time.

    I seemed to have noticed that since I have been using the helix, I have had more intense orgasms without it in me. I have incredible orgasms with itin me, but they are a lot stronger just me myself and I.. :)
  • I had to come here and post real quickly regarding myself and MROCKs experience. Being his gf, I find the exploration of prostate play to be exciting and new to me. It's great finding a man who's down to try new things that others may find "taboo", and also a man who is open to share his experiences with me. We only see each other so often (long distance relationship) but I feel it would also be good for you guys to hear the females perspective on this as well. MRock has been using the Helix on his own, between our visits, and I must say....... WOW. I thoroughly enjoy giving mrock oral as often as possible when we are together and I just want to give you guys a comparison from when we first met (pre Helix) to later (after the Helix came in to play) It is like night and day. Mrocks orgasms are extremely intense and drawn out now. The crazy thing is that, like he stated above, when I give him head he isn't even using the toy, yet he is getting increasingly STRONGER finishes.
    Blew me away (no pun intended..lol) so I thought I would share my joy in this nifty little piece of plastic. ;)

    Hello Jrobyn, :)

    Thank you so much for telling your side of the story. We like it when the women join in the conversations and give us their perspective. And that's very neat that the two of you have noticed an improved difference (post Helix) in traditional sexual activity. Nothing wrong with that! :D Many couples here have wonderful sexual experiences together as a result of the man's Aneros practice and journey. I'm very glad that the two of you can be open about Mrock's Aneros practice, as that does not always happen.

    Love_is

    This was surprising..LOL but she isn't lying. I go off now.. No Super O's or anything like that when i am messing with the Helix, but sensations have come out that were not there at first. So it does take some time for some for these feelings/sensations to arise. However, as my lady stated, my orgasms are way more intense and prolonged.. Go Aneros.!!! (and SF GIANTS!)
  • Yeah, I haven't had my super O yet and I've been trying for months. My last attempt was the most successful in that I finally got over the "just up the butt" feeling, but I didn't really get any pleasure until I started using hand masturbation.

    I noticed though that when I ejaculated from hand masturbation with the Helix in, the rubbing sensation on my prostate was quite noticeable. It wasn't painful, but it wasn't pleasurable. It made me ejaculate very hard though, and I'm wondering if it's safe for the Helix to rub so aggressively against the prostate?
