I haven’t felt any pleasure from my Aneros

I have a Helix Syn Trident. I can assure you I have been trying, but I haven’t felt any pleasure. Yes, I have experienced involuntary contractions, but those yield nothing. I have read every guide, tried every type of audio, porn, binaural beat, position, lube and level of contraction, and I have felt nothing. I’m kind of disappointed that I spent so much money without anything to show for it.

However, such may be a virtue or a weakness, I really don’t want to give up. Nonetheless, I have no idea what to do. What can I do? Is there anything I can focus on, anything to practice with contractions or kegels or anything to get the desired effect? I’m not even looking for an orgasm at this point, I just want some proof that this is all real and it’s something I can achieve.

I Think I’m Making Progress

I’ve gotten to the point where I EASILY get a lot of involuntary contractions but with little to no pleasure. I’ve been in that phase for a VERY long time which frustrates me. It’s weird, because even though I’m not really feeling pleasure, I still precum a lot during it.

Recently read a post about someone who used the p-tab to wiggle the aneros back and forth very fast which lead them to their super o experience. So I tried the same.

Inserted aneros and started wiggling the p-tab back and forth while rubbing my nipples (I’ve always played with my nipples since my very first fap). Felt pleasurable. Then I proceeded to let the aneros do its own thing without the wiggling or nipple play. Got to the involuntaries again as usual with a ton more precum, but this time, I felt a faint pleasure building. You know the point just before regular orgasm where you feel the fluid/pressure begin to build in your penis? It’s just before the point of no return. I felt that coming on… then it faded. Then I got to that point a few more times, then it faded again. Then finally I hit the point where I was feeling no pleasure at all cause my prostate felt on fire/tired/exhausted.

So I ended it there. Thoughts?

I’m Stuck, But I’d Like to Offer My Progress.

Hi there, I’m a lurker but I’ve decided to share my progress in hopes of getting some advice in what to do next in order to progress. This could also help others too.

So far the most successful method I’ve done is this:

1.) Put it in and relax completely, not even PC contractions. Remember to breathe deeply and with each exhale let go of all tension.

2.) I keep doing it until it feels like I don’t have a toy up my butt. I heard some get a sort of “tickle” in that general area. I don’t get a tickle but more of a noticeable change in feeling.

3.) Now this is when I start playing with my PC muscles. For me, I keep the same rhythm of breathing deeply and slowly, with each inhale I slowly contract then hold. Then with each exhale I slowly relax. After doing this 10-20 times I’ll relax from a contraction and start getting mild involuntary contractions.

4.) Once I get there I just hold the level of contraction that started the involuntaries. I found that playing with my nipples here had great results.

5.) Now here’s where I’m stuck. Once I’m holding that contraction the involuntaries start to feel better and better. The problem is that once they get to a certain point, my PC muscles start contracting like crazy, and I don’t know whether to just let it happen or to try and relax back down to the point that started them. I’ve tried both, and the feelings never got any better. I’m yet to have a prostate orgasm, that I’m sure of.

How do I reach an orgasm with my Helix?

Recently got a Helix Syn and I’m just wondering how to reach those good feelings with it. I’ve seen stuff online but it is pretty vague. I have managed to reach involuntary contractions, but all they do is make my penis pulse instead of feeling good. Are there any steps or tutorials for this? Any tips on how to make it feel good? Honestly, the only pleasure I’ve gotten from using it can be recognized when I manually masturbate with it inserted.

My recent discoveries leading to HFDO, and the surprising results of am “upgrade” to a Progasm

Tldr, recently finally figured out some Aneros secrets and upgraded to a larger model that rocked me, but I still wouldn’t necessarily replace the smaller one, it wasn’t necessarily better, but a good difference.

The following was a lot voice to text trying to explain what I was feeling so I could use it as a guide later on, but when editing to make sense of it, I realized it was journalistic and informative, so I thought I would share.

A quick about me, I bought the Aneros Trident (MGX) many years ago after seeing a post on Reddit about the male gspot, and it seemed legit, so I ordered one. I enjoyed using it, bought a slew of different toys, found one kind of U shaped silicone toy that worked one time for a cum spurting, black out and wake up after, crazy prostate orgasm many years ago and my journey since then has been some good jerking off or sex sessions with some anal attention, and have not been able to find that magic again. It was a lot of intense rubbing, and after that all my attempts left me feeling like I had been pushing too hard, or not getting there and feeling like I was no longer interested and stopping.

My wife and I occasionally indulge in some pegging, and that’s kind of where my revitalized Aneros journey began anew.

Prostate play & involuntary shaking= trauma release?

I’ve been having involuntary abdominal contractions related to my sexual energy experimentation, edging and prostate play. I’ve noticed on these forums that the involuntary contractions are not unusual.

Today I had my first Somatic Experiencing trauma release therapy session (method created by Peter Levine “Waking the Tiger”) it’s talk therapy, focused on releasing trauma stored in the body. During the session I had some of the involuntary contractions in my abdomen and calf muscles. The therapist said it was a fight or flight response.

So I have a hypothesis that the involuntary contractions that some guys experience related to prostate play, could be ambient trauma release from the body. Shaking and trembling are how trauma release often happens amongst animals and humans. Since the rectum/1st chakra is such a storehouse of energy, memories and tension, I wonder if awakening it through prostate play could trigger the trauma release process and shaking.

Has anyone ever considered this before? Or is anyone who’s familiar with Peter Levine’s work ever seen an overlap with their prostate play? Seems like this is a rich and perhaps uncharted area for exploration and discovery.

Looking for reccomendations on next toy

Hey r/aneros! I’m planning to buy myself another toy and I’m hoping to crowd-source some input from you good people to help me decide on a model.

I would describe myself on the early side of intermediate, I’ve been using aneros for about 2-3 years and over the last year my progress has been moving more steadily forward. I’m starting to achieve better and better sensations including pleasure waves, mini-os and involuntaries/muscle spasms.

I have 3 toys at the moment; Helix Syn, Progasm Ice and Eupho Trident.

Most of the time I use the Helix Syn, which I find to be the most comfortable. It feels fuller, I get good sensations and I can ride it for longer. I find that the eupho is more mobile, and I’ve had a few great sessions (in fact probably my best sessions) with it, but they seem to be fewer and further between because of the small size. As if I need to be really in the zone to make the eupho work for me. It also feels uncomfortable after riding for a while. The prograsm is too big for me, moves very little and not very comfortable.

I’m thinking about a model from the Trident Syn line, and I’m trying to decide between Helix, Maximus or Eupho. Has anyone had a similar experience to me, and can recommend a toy that works for them?

Thanks!

Psychedelic breakthrough on edibles

A couple of months ago I purchased a Helix Trident to learn how to have a hands free orgasm. I received the Helix on a Tuesday and practiced every morning with the help of Mindgasm.net . The practice sessions felt amazing but no where near HFO or Super O’s.

On the weekends I will start my day by eating 20mgs of cannabis gummies with my morning coffee. When they kicked in I slipped in the Helix and put on the noise cancelling headphones and got comfortable on the couch.
If you are not familiar with Mindgasm.net some brilliant individual created a site that teaches you how to control each individual muscle group in your pelvic region using musical ques and a pleasent AI voice.
One of those lessons is called the Big Squeeze where you flex your base and middle muscle at the same time then relax the base slowly then the middle which causes involuntary muscle contractions.
When I was in the middle of the lesson my mind and body took over. I have been blessed to have had psychedelic breakthroughs on numerous substances but never cannabis. There is something about the prostate and cannabis that caused me to have an out of body experience. I understand why the website creator called it Mindgasm. After I came down and relaxed I laughed out loud at what just happened. I breathed deeply, closed my eyes and flexed again. I was instantly right back in. Fractals and colors that were identical to DMT or mushrooms but I could control it. I could not believe it. After my third go I told myself enough is enough.
Since that day I have tried my damnedest to get to that place while sober but just can not get there. I have since purchased the Progasm and Eupho Trident both of which are amazing.
After finishing all five lessons on the website I have become proficient and now listen to music while having a session which adds a whole nother level.

Your Mileage May Vary

So I had another aneros session last night. Fourth? Fifth, I think. I had some interesting involuntary shivering (legs, belly, etc) as if cold or feverish in my second session, and again in the next. But the fourth session didn’t really go anywhere and neither did last nights.

I’ve never used marijuana before, but I tried an edible before a session, and again before last night’s session. This second time was to confirm my experience the first time. A lot of people swear by this as a help. Not in my experience.

I do have a reaction. My visual imagination gets a lot less inhibited, and I have a lot of interesting visuals going on. I feel light-headed and dizzy, and I find myself unable to concentrate. My stomach feels…odd. Not nauseated, but like I *could* be fairly easily. After a while, I get the munchies.

But it does nothing for my aneros session. And I don’t like the way I feel. Also, while my understanding is that the effects of the edible should only last for a few hours, I find myself intermittently dizzy and disconnected many hours later, and even mildly so occasionally the next day. I don’t really feel like myself again until the second day after.

So, I’m done. I don’t like the way I feel when I use this stuff, and it doesn’t seem to do anything for me. I may have better results with poppers. They at least really *are* a short-lived effect, and if not as mind-bending as I expected, do seem useful.

Progress after 15 Years! (And Sore Abs)

I’ve been using the Aneros (on and off) for about 15 years. Many different models. I’d really just given up on it. I’d gotten some involuntaries, a hard on and mild “nice” feelings with the Aneros in the past, but never understood what all these other people were raving about. However, I tried the Helix Trident Syn for the 1st time and WOW: I really feel like I had a breakthrough session with it (Finally!)

But this time, I really felt something stronger against my prostate and tried hard not to be alarmed by the unexpected feelings the aneros produces. I think there was post about this called “Terror At The Gates” It’s easy to lose focus when these uncontrollable and new physical reactions suddenly take over our bodies. I just kept telling myself, *”Don’t be afraid” “It’s OK to be scared”* and the feelings just started to get more and more exhilarating.

In any case, my heart was pounding in its chest and the blood rushing in my ears as if I was gonna have a heart attack. The Helix Trident really moved against my prostate in a discernable way and I started to cover my mouth with my hand to stop the teenage girl squeals that I couldn’t help but vocalize. It was wild!
