    This is a stuped question but I was just wondering.
    When I take a good crapp I relax and go. I have feelings that shoot through my body. Now are those feelings close to the ones I'm looking for?

    Hi ssw1... not at all stupid.

    Good sign your brain is rewiring. For a few mornings early in my Journey, my feet would pound up and down on the floor in front of the toilet as my bowels moved. Be alert to all the feelings you experience and ignore those that you don't wish to cultivate.

    Working on the idea that our brains prefer pleasure to pain (most guys who aren't into extreme SM seem to prefer chocolate or a cold beer to having their toenails extracted)....

    SSo what does that mean?



    I think it means that, at the sub-conscious / involuntary level, your brain has sensed a thread of pleasure from your Aneros exploits and is randomly testing or playing with various muscle groups to re-create or amplify what it liked. If this doesn't return some pleasure the brain will probably move on to something else. And, as you consciously and sub-consciously hone your pleasure triggers and shape your Aneros ventures there will be fewer "random walks" into the unknown.

    I think that starting out it's important to not suppress these involuntaries as long as they are not placing you in an unsafe situation. Just let them play out, learn to amplify the ones that bring you pleasure and ignore the tremors that seem to lead nowhere. "Amplification" might just be mentally acknowledging the sensation and, in a Shinto sense, granting it your blessing. Amplification might be giving at tiny contraction of your PC or anal muscle group. These little 'blessings,' bestowed on your brain should help to shape your sessions.

    While some guys seem to fall easily into the pond of sensual pleasure and swim, others have a lot of incidents where the brain is sticking a toe in the pond to test the temperature and sources of pleasure.

    That's the way I view much of the muscle tremor and seemingly random contractions we experience early in our Journeys. I don't propose this as a hypothesis, more though as an "excuse" for the seemingly illogical things that happen to us.
