It was with a bit of trepidation that I purchased (Black Friday Deal) the Helix Syn V after a recommendation from a medical professional for potential prostate issues.  So, the very first step for me was to get over all of the weird mind crap that made me too tense for comfortable initial insertion.

Frankly, my first few attempts led to an incredible enhancement of my porn-induced self-pleasuring.  Now that I've researched more, I see that this is only the beginning of what can become an incredible journey.  Further delving (pun intended) reveals that I am not even yet on the "real" path which includes Super-Os, involuntaries, etc.

So here's my question(s):  I am still having a somewhat difficult time inserting and am feeling sore (@ entry point) with the device inside.  Testing different lubes, maybe playing too much with my new toy, and needing a break between sessions.  Given that the sphincters are muscles, is this just normal exercise strain?  Have an anesthetic cream that I can massage around the old brown eye.  Also, is it better to begin training/rewiring without the vibrator feature only to add it later?

Any thoughts or suggestions???

Soreness can develop from several reasons. As you mentioned, overuse of any group of muscles can start to breakdown the muscles and they then need time to rebuild, this is the basis of almost all workout regimes. Over time the muscles get stronger and build endurance and the soreness factor usually decreases. Taking breaks (1-2 days) between sessions is probably a good idea to allow time for your muscles to recover.

In the case of Aneros use, soreness can also occur due to irritation of the skin and mucous membranes. This is usually minimized by the use of adequate lubrication. The primary function of the lubrication is to assure a minimum of friction between your Aneros and you. Since the rectum produces very little in the way of natural lubrication, it is necessary to provide supplemental lubrication to assure a comfortable and irritation free buffer. Understand the amount of Aneros movement generated by your internal muscular contractions is actually very small, so in that sense it doesn't really slide much at all (except upon insertion and extraction). The concept of the Aneros moving freely is just to make sure there is no encumbrance to these small movements. However, the lubrication you use can also cause problems if you are mildly allergic to the chemicals in those lubes. Finding a good lube that you are compatible with will go a long way toward reducing soreness. Providing ample lubrication and learning to relax your anal sphincters should make insertion easy and pleasant.

I would not recommend you use any kind of anesthetic cream in conjunction with your Anerosessions. Those anesthetics desensitize the very nerves you are attempting to stimulate and they can mask pain which is your body's mechanism to warn about possible damage/injury being done. If you are experiencing pain/discomfort from your Aneros use then you are doing something wrong and need to take steps to resolve the issue involved, masking the pain is NOT the solution.

While the use of vibration can enhance the stimulatory effect of the massager it can also be a distraction from learning to manipulate the massager using your pelvic floor muscles. Additionally, prolonged use of the vibration feature may tend to desensitize the nerve network surrounding your prostate. It is through trial and error you will establish the threshold for such desensitization. I would recommend you first learn to make use of your muscles to move the massager and only add the vibrating function late in an Anerosession to boost you into the Super-O zone.

Good Vibes to You!
