p-tabs and k-tabs improvement

I am of the opinion that the way these tabs are designed is counterintuitive to a person's natural anatomy.

I own several different models, and almost all of them suffer the same tendency to fall to one side or the other when using them. I've seen this issue referenced in the forums, with one user even suggesting to hold it in place as a technique for how to use the device.

To me, having to hold something in place or re-adjust often is extremely distracting. We all should know how important it is to be able to focus while having a session, so being able to rectify this problem would be a huge benefit to me and many others I am certain.

I think that a redesign could easily retain the ability to pivot the device using one's pc muscles, while simultaneously being more comfortable for sitting (this is something that I've seen expressed multiple times on the forums as well) and allowing the arm to stay in the correct location.

I found a design that shows an alternative shape, which looks much more ergonomic:

It basically looks like someone took a Eupho redesigned the p-tab and removed the k-tab entirely. I'd be really curious as to how this design would compare to Aneros' current designs if anyone has ever tried one like this.

As for the k-tab, I am of the opinion that it isn't necessary. I don't think it does much, if anything. For me, it just tends to cause discomfort sometimes. I think that this one could be done away with, or possibly redesigned as well, so that it does not  protrude. Again, this would make the sitting position much more feasible for the device(s) and it would open up the possibilities of being able to use them more often and in different settings.

That's all I've got for now, please let me know what you think on any of this, I'd be glad to discuss any experiences/thoughts/ideas you may have.

Thank you.

For me the significance of the k tab varies with the different models. I’m not really aware of it when I use my Helix or Eupho but with the Progasm I have a strong sense of its presence and can achieve powerful sensations by focusing on it.

As for driving with an Aneros, I wouldn’t risk it personally- too distracting by far!

@iopas Interesting. I would tend to agree with that. I don't have the Progasm, but I've not really felt anything with it when using the eupho, helix, or mgx

You're right about the driving thing too, that was just one example. There's lots of other beneficial sitting applications I think though.

I agree.

The current ones feel like an afterthought somehow.

Im sure it woouldnt be possible with weight etc, but an independent vibrator there in the vibrating model would be really nice. it currently feels a bit left out.

I personally enjoy the stimulation that the K tab provides but it took years before I felt the pleasure it can provide! The Syn models which are more flexible did it for me!

I think I have seen other brands that have motors built into the perineum as well. They are quite a bit bulkier though. Personally, I haven't felt the need for it when using the syn v model. Though, I do wish the arms were different. They are very rigid on that model.

Interesting, but I'm still skeptical. All of the models I have are the syn models, except for the maximus. My personal experience is that the k-tabs are negligible.

Could you tell me more about your experience?

It is possible that there are issues of fit and of focus. My relatively new Helix Syn 5 is a good fit and is held quite firmly. It is slightly shorter than a earlier model I used which pushed up against the inner sphincter and my rectum tried to push it out in response. Especially if I tilt my pelvis back by raising my legs up, the aneros sits their under its own weight and I can then begin to distinguish between the pressure from the p tab and the k tab having found that focus I can bring my focus to the k tab with legs in other positions . When the feelings from the k tab kick in I bring my focus there and enjoy the warm waves at the bottom of my spine. It's not always predictable in my experience so you can't will it to be there but if you teach yourself to recognise and focus on the k tab stimulation, it become possible to hold that focus for a while until you want to shift it elsewhere.
