As many of you know, I recently purchased the complete Peridise set. As soon as I got the package, I decided to give it a try for a full day, and I must say I'm pleased with the results )both in terms of pleasure and toning(. However, I feel like my "lube" of choice was not a good fit, as by the end of the day I had a slight stinging sensation between my inner and outer sphincters (using a knock-off travel-size petrolatum). Either that, or there was just some contaminant that was irritating the tissue throughout the day.
Still, after a "fun" evening with the wife (which I was actually able to last a whole lot longer than usual, even after one session), I feel like it's definitely giving some positive results. As such, I'm starting a strict nightly regimen of Peridise use, focusing on each size for a week before stepping down in size (starting with the largest). After the first session, I didn't notice any sore muscles, and it could have been because I didn't give it a proper workout through the day (sitting on my ass all day).
The one thing I noticed that I wasn't quite expecting was how similar to a regular Aneros session the Peridise was. In chat, rook had mentioned that the prostate gets lonely because of a lack of direct pressure/contact, but I didn't find that to be the case. On the contrary, I was getting some great pleasurable sensations, intense p-waves (stronger than I've ever had), and the vibrations of involuntaries that I've grown to look forward to during my sessions. The biggest enjoyment I got out of it was an itch that's been growing for several days, the itch of wanting something inserted (even if not necessarily pleasurable). This itch was centered in the anus, not the prostate, and giving it something to "suck" on for most of the day quelled this desire for now. I'm almost looking forward to my first true session after this strict regimen to see just how far my muscles have developed after a month.
Admittedly, I might be going about this the wrong way, in that I'm abstaining from regular inserted sessions during this time (might cause withdrawal symptoms). Since my session yesterday was so fulfilling in terms of the itch, I feel like it probably won't be a big deal, but it's still a bit disheartening to know I won't be having a proper session for a whole month. Especially considering how prostate hungry I've been the past month, I might just have to give in and have an early morning session to take the edge off.
The problem with this is that my morning sessions have always been riddled with problems. Between not being a morning person (always being too tired), overly active bowels upon waking, and just too much mind noise when waking, I can't seem to have a beneficial session in the morning. Even with adequate sleep, I just can't seem to get myself "in the mood" to enjoy it properly, and I feel like I'd be wasting time, energy, and lube. Unfortunately, nights/mornings are my only consistent opportunities, so it might just be a matter of training my body to accept the pleasure in the morning by starting a routine and sticking with it during this time. Not sure how consistent this would be though, as I try to space out my sessions with at least a day in between, so I don't think I'll be able to get a consistent schedule going. Maybe I should just do it, but not dedicate my usual 60-90 minutes on it, and just use it for about 15-30 minutes to get my day going.
I guess I shouldn't be looking at it as a bad thing. Absence makes the heart grow fonder, and I'm sure abstaining from Aneros use for strictly recreational purposes will just make the next session that much sweeter when I pick it back up. Here's to a happy and healthy prostate!
