So far it's been a little over a month since my first use of the Helix. I have nothing particularly new to report from my last post. Progress (if any) is still slow. I'm continuing learning to appreciate whatever I do feel, even if it is nowhere near encouraging of any sexual feeling.
On two sessions, I decided to break the rules by trying manual stimulation. I know this is not good, but I was curious as to what would happen. Depending on how I moved the helix, I felt increasing needs for urination. Not particularly any sort of distinctly pleasurable feeling, just that sensation of urination. I suppose this is the sort of sensation I am looking for through hands-free use, but I get nowhere near it until I work the aneros by hand. I'll ease off on the manual stimulation for the moment unless someone has any advice regarding it.
I will also probably stop posting the semi-weekly updates as I was previously trying. It's clear that I have a long way to go and I don't want to flood this site with many "nothing's happening" posts. I have a feeling they would pile up pretty high. It's somewhat depressing in a way.
