How Prostate Massagers Work

There are a lot of pleasure products available these days, and there are more designed for the prostate than ever before, but nothing comes close to the Aneros line of prostate massagers. Shaped with men’s anatomy in mind, our products are designed to maximize your experience, whether you’re new to prostate stimulation or you’ve been doing this for years. Read on and discover what makes ours the best.


All of the Aneros prostate massagers follow the same basic design, with variations to provide different experiences. The front arm is curved upward to press against the perineum, behind the scrotum.  This arm is called the Perineum Tab, or P-Tab.  On some models, the rear arm is curved down, in order to make it easier to remove your Aneros. On others, it’s curved up to press on the base of the tailbone for extra sensation.    This is called the Kundalini Tab, or K-Tab.

The main body of your Aneros massager is the perfect length to reach the prostate. It’s anatomically designed, so insertion is easy, and the head and neck are designed to be held in place by the anal muscles.

Most Aneros models are made from a firm plastic that makes it easier to control the motion of the massager. The Syn models feature a plastic core and a silicone outer layer. They also have a more flexible front arm, which allows you more subtle control over the intensity of your experience. This flexibility works best when you can tune in to the smaller motions of your pelvic muscles. New Aneros users often find the firmer plastic models are more effective, at least until they gain more skill with their massager.

The Aneros design is different from other products you might have used so be sure to read about how to use your Aneros and get the most out of it.


When you have your Aneros massager inserted, squeeze your PC (pubococcygeus) muscle group. This is the muscle that you can contract to make your penis bounce when you have an erection. It’s also the group of the muscles that contract during ejaculation.

When you squeeze the muscle, it causes the anus to tighten and pull up inward, toward your head. The front tab on your massager acts like a fulcrum, so each contraction levers the shaft of your Aneros into your prostate. When you relax the muscle, the massager returns to its original position. Your ability to use your PC muscle gives you the ideal control over the speed and pressure of your massage, and with a little practice you can create different sensations on your prostate.

You can use your Aneros during solo sessions or with a partner. It’s comfortable to wear in almost any position other than sitting. Since it needs to move freely in order to get that lever action, sitting on a chair or couch doesn’t work.

Try squeezing your PC muscle in short bursts or hold it for a longer time. Experiment with timing it with penis stimulation or explore it on its own. Since your pelvic muscles also squeeze and relax during sexual stimulation, you can also allow the natural contractions of your pelvis to control the motion instead of doing it deliberately. Natural contractions can take some practice to tune into, but they allow you to enjoy a much longer session and a lot of men say it’s their favorite technique!

Some guys experiment by moving the Aneros manually, but that’s not really how it’s designed. You’ll get more from it if you allow your PC muscle to do the work.

One last tip – the front tab sometimes slips off to the side, which means your Aneros won’t get levered correctly. If that happens, simply reach down and slide it back to where it should be.

Since the PC muscle is in charge of making your Aneros work, you’ll want to get it in shape. The longer and more firmly you can squeeze it before it gets tired, the better your Aneros session will be. As an added bonus, a toned PC muscle can also make your erections firmer.

Learning to control your PC muscle takes some practice, so you need to do your Kegel exercises. Named for the doctor who popularized this exercise for women, Kegels are just as important for men to do.

There are two ways to identify which muscle you want to work on. If you’ve ever made your erection bounce by squeezing your pelvic floor, you already know where your PC muscle is, even if you didn’t know that’s what you were doing. The other technique is to sit on the toilet and start to urinate. Once urine begins flowing, squeeze the muscle that makes it stop. That’s the one you’re aiming for. You only need to do this while urinating the first time, in order to find the muscle. After that, you can exercise it any time.

Now that you know where your PC muscle is, here are three ways to work it:

1) Do a squeeze and release on a two count. (squeeze-two, relax-two)

2) Do a slow four-count cycle. (squeeze-two-three-four, hold-two-three-four, release-two-three-four, relax-two-three-four)

3) Do a series of quick butterfly squeezes, followed by an equal resting time.

Start off with just a few reps at a time and build up, just like any exercise. Be sure to rest and relax the muscle in between sets to avoid muscle spasms. Don’t forget to breathe during your pelvic workout- exhale on the squeeze and inhale on the relax.

The more you do your Kegel exercises, the more you’ll get out of your Aneros sessions, so remember to do them every day and you’ll see how amazing your prostate pleasure will be!

One of the great things about the Aneros massagers is how many ways you can use them. A lot of men enjoy having their partners massage their prostates, but it’s difficult to combine prostate massage with other kinds of sex. Fortunately, the Aneros makes it easy to combine them.

You can use your Aneros during almost any kind of partnered sex, including oral sex and intercourse. Some men say it’s easier to tune into the prostate sensations if they’re in a less active role. For example, intercourse while you lie on your back with your partner astride you may work better than missionary position because the larger motions of thrusting can make it difficult to tune into the prostate pleasure. But other guys say they enjoy using their Aneros while in a more active role during intercourse, so it’s worth trying it to see what works for you.

Using the Aneros when you’re solo is one of the best ways to enjoy prostate massage. It can be difficult to manually massage your own prostate, though men with longer arms and more flexible wrists often enjoy it. Using the Aneros makes self-massage easy. Your Aneros is a great add-on during masturbation. In fact, your PC muscle may involuntarily contract as you get turned on, so you can get prostate pleasure even if you’re not trying to control your Aneros.

What makes the Aneros different from other pleasure products is that it’s designed to focus specifically on the prostate. Other toys might offer amazing anal sensations, but that’s different from prostate stimulation.

Available in a variety of sizes, shapes, and materials, dildos are designed to create an in-and-out sensation by sliding back and forth. This means they aren’t hands-free and many of them aren’t shaped for maximum prostate stimulation.

A butt plug (also called anal plug) has a wide bulb and a narrow neck. It’s inserted into the anus, allowing the muscles to hold the neck and keep it in place. This creates a sense of fullness, while also being hands-free. However, most plugs don’t move very much and many aren’t long enough to reach the prostate anyway, so they don’t offer much prostate pleasure.

Unlike dildos and butt plugs, your Aneros massager is designed with prostate anatomy and pleasure in mind. It’s hands-free, so it’s simple to use. Since the purpose is to stimulate the prostate rather than the anus, it’s slim for easy insertion and men who want to enjoy prostate pleasure without focusing on anal stimulation say it’s the perfect design.

There are other prostate massagers available, but they aren’t made with the same care, attention, and understanding of male anatomy as the Aneros. Aneros massagers are the only ones designed for a true hands-free experience, to work with the body’s own contractions. The hands-free concept facilitates a mind/body experience which elevates the amount of pleasure a man can receive from an Aneros massager over others. If you want the best prostate massager, remember than Aneros was the pioneer and we continue to make the best products around!

While medical research still has a way to go when it comes to understanding the benefits of prostate massage, there are a lot of men who have had positive results from it. Massage increases blood flow and improves health in any part of the body, but there are ways in which it’s especially useful for your prostate.

One of the possible causes of prostatitis is having tight pelvic muscles that can squeeze or compress the gland. Unlike bacterial infections, which can be treated with antibiotics, the physical irritation from nearby muscles won’t be affected by medication. But learning to relax the pelvic floor and doing Kegel exercises can relieve tension and improve prostate health.

Massage can also be helpful for men with an enlarged prostate (benign prostatic hyperplasia or BPH). Men with BPH often have difficulty urinating because the gland squeezes around the urethra. Fortunately, lots of guys with this condition report that massage can help reduce symptoms and the Aneros makes it a lot easier to massage yourself than trying to do it by hand.

Massage may have other benefits for your prostate health. Some doctors believe that the microscopic glands that produce prostatic fluid can get blocked up and that massage can help clear the gland and improve function. It’s also believed that a bacterial infection can form a biofilm, which is an enclosure that protects the bacteria within it. It’s similar to the plaque that can form on teeth. Massage may break up the biofilm and make it easier for your immune system to get to work. And if you’re taking antibiotics for the infection, they’ll be more effective.

Lastly, prostate massage improves your health because the more familiar you are with your prostate, the easier it is to get the best medical attention when you need it. Men who aren’t familiar with prostate sensations might only be able to tell a doctor it feels uncomfortable “down there.” Guys who know what and where their prostates are can often help their doctors make the right diagnosis because they can feel what’s going on. Knowledge and informed communication can speed the medical process and get them the right care.

With all of these health benefits to prostate massage, isn’t it good to know something can be good for you and feel so amazing at the same time?

Whether your Aneros is made from hard plastic or it’s coated with silicone, the non-porous material is easy to clean. Simply wash it with soap and hot water and let it air dry. You can use any kind of soap to clean it.

If you’re using the Vice, be sure to remove the vibrator before washing it. The silicone portion can be disinfected by washing it and then putting it in boiling water for five minutes. Don’t boil the other models since the plastic can be damaged by boiling.
