What are P-waves?

What are P-waves? After digging in the annals of the forum I have seen that this is a question that has been asked before, but I wanted to ask you current members your opinion. 

 

From the beginning of my journey it has been unclear what they are.  I recently read the official aneros definition of them again, and it is as wishy washy as reading my horoscope: certain words ring true as things I regularly feel, while others don’t, and no one thing in my experience is a clear pleasure wave, semantically unique from other sensations (orgasms, on the other hand, though they take on all shapes and sizes and are located all over my body and mind, are easy to classify as such).  Whatever p waves might be, for me they are inextricably linked with general arousal and sensitivity, awakened prostate, orgasms, and other undefined sensations, to a point where I don’t know what they are.  Most often I experience more of a STATE of pleasure rather than a wave of pleasure.

 

There are several things that feel wavelike but are each very different from one another.  When I am focused on giving my partner pleasure, say, during penetrative sex, I can be in a dominant mindset and thus practically unreceptive to pleasure.  If something happens to break the dominant spell and turn me into a more submissive state (she might touch my chest, or kiss me, or I might just switch on my own), then I feel a wave of intense pleasure fall over my body. But again it is more like a state, just in this case the state falls upon me at once.

 

There is something else that I get that users of MDMA might recognize, waves of euphoria both physical and mental. I get these waves sometimes, but they have nothing to do with prostate orgasms or prostate play.  They just have to do with extreme arousal and feeling connected with my partner.

 

And then there are waves of a different sort.  If very intense orgasms are tsunami’s, then very small orgasms are ripples in the water.   Sometimes (keyword, sometimes) big orgasms arrive to me through ascending waves of ever growing orgasms. Perhaps these smaller orgasms are what many people refer to as P waves?

 

But a ripple is to a minnow what a tsunami is to a whale, so in the right state of mind a minuscule wave can be a massive orgasm.  Seeing as the definition is so vague to me and others before me, is it possible that these “p-waves” that some folks feel are just orgasms, and that they just need to become a minnow in order to feel them as such (i.e. practice amplification, which heightens the sensation OR diminishes the self, depending on how you look at it)?  

 

@mountain-below-the-sea just posted asking about p-waves and how to build them into orgasms. This is my response, in a sense.  For me P waves don’t even exist. I don’t mean to say they don’t exist for anyone. Just not for me, at least not in a distinct way.

 

I am curious to hear what others consider to be P waves.

Fairly easy this. P-waves are simply the pleasurable feelings one experiences outside of orgasm. Sexual pleasure in any form,and by that I mean sex,prostate massage,masturbation,any sexual activity that brings pleasure,the pleasure is p-waves. The term is just what the founders used to quantify things. Most feel nothing at the start of this journey,then they begin to feel pleasurable sensations,p-waves. All p-waves must be amplified by arousal to climb the stairs to orgasm. Easier done with the nerve,and partner assistance in regular sex. More a learned behaviour via the prostate route.

For that matter what counts as a contraction?  I find the wiki to be frustratingly vague sometimes and have had to come up with my own definitions on occasion.  Whether it means anything to anyone but me is another matter.  It's hard to say that everyone's experiences are the same and at some point if you're not experiencing something that's well-defined are you doing it wrong?  Still too new to say. 

I guess that for me P-waves are very pleasurable pulses of my prostate, rhythmic and constant.  I've only experienced them a few times really but to me it was like I had these Mini-Os (small peaks) that came over a sea of bubbling pleasure (the P-waves), neither too far in intensity from the other.  It's hard to separate the two or define one by itself.

@faith-manages a muscle contraction is a muscle contraction. That’s one thing that can be defined. 
Things probably aren’t vague to those who quantify them from their own perception. I do believe we likely experience similar things on this journey,but how ppl put it into words and their thoughts is the thing that very different.

What are P-waves? ... I recently read the official aneros definition of them again, and it is as wishy washy as reading my horoscope:

The Aneros WIKI was written to be a general guide for using Aneros devices, as such, many aspects of the discussion may seem vague. This was deliberate to accommodate the great variety of sensations men do encounter on their individual journeys. There is a danger in trying to be too specific about some definitions as the definition may become too exclusionary to the point of confusing/denying a man's experience. I think this applies to an overly specific definition for what constitutes a P-wave as well.

I've experienced a good variety of sensations over my years of use which I would identify as P-waves, these have ranged from quick short cold chills with goose bumps to rising tides of hot flushes, from energetic electric shocks to ineffable states of calming bliss. As varied and diverse as all of these have been, to me, they have all been pleasurable sensations which I can only identify in the general category of P-waves.

As is so often mentioned here, every man's Aneros journey is a unique, individualized experience with nuances from individual life experiences. I hope we don't get hung up on restrictive categorizing/defining that we lose understanding of the ineffable quality of sensations our bodies produce for us to experience. IMHO, a little vagueness is a small price to pay to enjoy the mystery of these pleasures.

Good Vibes to You!

So based on what Rumel and helghast wrote, pleasure waves are just pleasure, and the word “wave” is unnecessary extra baggage that confused me. I always thought it was a specific sensation that some people had, because it is abbreviated and used all over the place.  I have never been comfortable using the term because I wasn’t sure what they were. I also never feel comfortable responding to questions about p waves for the same reason. Now I feel more comfortable with the term.

@divine_o Your actually in the ballpark. Now that I’ve thought about it,if pressed,I guess I’d say wave is more appropriate when describing my orgasm. Not the pleasurable build up. I,like everyone else picked up the term from posts on the forum. Perhaps it should be purged from the anerosian language lol
