I purchased the Helix a couple of weeks ago and I had an opportunity to try it out. Like many people in the forum, I did not get the magical response that I was hoping for. Here is what I did.
1. Clean with a water enema
2. Injected 5cc's of lubricant in the rectum.
3. Inserted the lubricated Helix.
After the initial feeling, I felt quite comfortable. After a few minutes, I really didn't get much sensation at all. I put on some relaxing music and rolled on my side. Did the flexing of the PC muscles for 15 min or so. I tried many of the positions that I read about on some of the other blogs and still very little stimulation. I sat up "Indian style" and started to rock back and forth. I started to get a nice feeling, but I was afraid that I was applying too much pressure on the perineum by sitting on the device. I had much more internal sensations than from the external part of the device.
I guess that my biggest problem is that I have a hard time becoming or staying aroused. My penis is completely flaccid and I don't feel like there is blood rushing down there. In fact it feels like the opposite, like the device is hindering the blood flow.
If I try to masturbate with the helix in, it seems to be very difficult to get and maintain an erection. This has never happened in my traditional sessions. Is this all mental? I am open to suggestions. I want to experience what many of you have experienced, but I want to make sure that I am doing this right.
Also, I see that many of you are able to have 2 hr sessions. When do you start to feel good? Am I not giving myself enough time? is there a tried and true position that seems to work for most people? Thanks for any input.
