Wow, was I nervous when I got the Aneros in the mail. First of all, it is one of the first sex toys I had ever had the pleasure of owning. Second, not only was I going to use a prostate toy for the first time, I was also going to write about the experience and post it on the Internet. Yikes!
However, I was pleasantly surprised by how easy it was to use and how comfortable I felt afterwards with the whole encounter. I would recommend the Aneros to new and seasoned P-spot finders alike. In terms of recent blockbusters, the experience with it was more “Inception” than “The Expendables” â€“ it wasn’t as intense as expected, but left me thinking about it for many days after.
Materials, Cleaning, and Care
The Aneros MGX is made of a non-porous FDA approved plastic called acetal and comes in “bridal white” (my name for the color). The instructions included with the device recommend washing it with soap and warm water before and after each use, which, as a public health advocate, I would recommend as well (learn more about how to clean sex toys). It wasn’t as messy as I thought it would be, but washing your toys is always a good idea, especially with toys that go in your butt. The main selling point on the Aneros, besides the ergonomic shape and quality material, is the handle and perineum tab. I found this perineum abutment to be a welcome second-string stimulator during use of the product. The entire toy is about 4″ long (measuring from the base), and about 1″ wide at its widest point (see picture insert for comparative size). Despite this generous girth, I found insertion easier than I thought, even with my inexperience.
For all sorts of information about the Aneros, such as how and why it was designed and how to use it, I suggest you visit the Aneros Wiki Page.
The basic concept behind this device is that men can have multiple non-ejaculatory orgasms by stimulating the prostate with the Aneros. They even deemed it “tantric training wheels” for its ability to bring about these orgasms.
In terms of the multiple orgasm promise, I found the Aneros underwhelming. Without going into graphic detail (in fact, my experience was eerily similar to Grant Stoddard’s at Nerve.com), the event wasn’t as painful nor as pleasurable as I was expecting. As a first-timer, I expected a fair amount of pain followed by a great amount of pleasure when I used the device as directed. Instead, it turned out to be an all-around comfortable experience, but not the avalanche of orgasms that was promised. The one thing I noticed after I orgasmed the “traditional” way was an aftershock orgasm that seemed to extend my pleasurable experience. The literature says you need to keep practicing with it to achieve the best orgasms, so I guess I’ll to try it a few more times!
For first timers and prostate-play veterans alike, the Aneros is a good investment. Unlike other anal toys, this is designed specifically to stimulate the prostate, and the careful attention to detail in that design is quite apparent. The one drawback is the price; however, $70 is a small price to pay for something you may use once a week for the rest of your life, improving your orgasms along the way. Also, in honor of September being Prostate Cancer Awareness Month, MyPleasure.com is offering 10% off all prostate toys with another 10% going to the Prostate Cancer Foundation for the entire month of September, so now is a great time to buy. Have fun!
