I’ve been using the regular helix for about the past 9 months or so. I’ve had about two or three sessions with really good success. About a month ago I had the best session yet and I’ve been chasing the feeling ever since. There was about a 10 day period where I’d try a session in bed before falling asleep. I typically use silicone lube.
During that 10 day stretch I noticed some soreness/slight tingliness/stingy sensation near my sphincter area. I assumed it was from over using so I took a break for a week.
Next session I got the same sensation. It almost feels like it’s a struggle for the aneros to glide up and down my rectum despite always using plenty of lube. The sensation goes away when I take the aneros out.
At this point it’s almost distracting and I feel like takes away from my concentration.
I’m wondering if a) i need to try a different model, and b) if my rectum is just absorbing the lube too fast? I typically reapply lube at least once in the middle of the session. Also I’m wondering if I’m contracting TOO hard.Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/aneros/comments/epk4a5/soreness_from_helix/
