Aneros purchase guide for Prostate Massage

Prostate milking for BPH, enlarged prostate and prostatitis

Deciding which Aneros model to choose is easier when you remember that they are all designed to do the same two things – prostatic massage and orgasm pleasure enhancement – but one model may be more effective than another because of overall body size, prostate size and shape, strength of PD muscles and ability to control contractions, pelvic contours, ability to relax during Aneros use, etc.   In this way the Aneros provides a wonderfully therapeutic prostate milking massage that greatly helps recovery from BPH and chronic prostatitis, as well as reduction of prostate symptoms  in men over 40.

All five Aneros prostate massager devices rely upon a patented, hands-free design that uses the contraction of the anal muscles to control the prostate massage in a controlled, safe and pleasant action.  While each model has the same general design idea, close inspection shows each has its own unique shape and size that determines how it performs.  Some are slightly larger, and some have more subtle curves here and there.

It is important to understand that each Aneros unit – Helix, MGX, SGX, Maximus and Eupho – works the way it does because of its overall design, not just because of one characteristic.  Size is not the most important characteristic of any one unit (bigger is not necessarily better), nor is shape.   Each model will be described and general comments will be offered about the performance quality of each.  With this information you can develop an idea which mode will work well for you.

It can be safely said that most men can use most Aneros prostate massagers; one or two might feel more comfortable than one or two others, but most models could be used with no problem.  There are no strict rules that dictate which model would suit a man better than another.  The idea that there is a “best” model of Aneros is not generally true.  The idea that there is a model you prefer more than others – your “favorite” – because its subtle difference fits your body better than others is closer to the truth of it.

To massage the prostate well, improve pelvic muscle tone

The Aneros will work better as a prostate massager if the lower pelvic PC muscles are strong and can be controlled well to push the device against the prostate. If you feel nothing happening when you have your prostate massager in place, it will be because your pelvic muscles are not strong enough; with continued use you will begin to feel a pleasant and sexual feeling during use that will tell you that you are getting stronger. The more you use the Aneros, regardless of which model you select, the better the prostate massage and sexual stimulation will be.  Continued use and practice pays off over time, as you learn how your body reacts to the Aneros depending on body posture while using it, comfort level and your mindset.

Read about each model before making a decision.

Aneros MGX – for beginner and all men       Aneros MGX

The Aneros MGX is a medically researched and designed to slide and rock over the surface of the prostate gland as the anal sphincter muscles slowly contract and relax.  The MGX is well balanced with a ribbed stem for prostate stimulation and stability

It is designed to stimulate both the prostate and the perineum in a rhythmic motion that moves lymphatic fluid out of the prostate as well as increase blood flow in this region, thus assisting the natural healing ability of the body, as well as creates male orgasms.  It has a standard ample perineum tab to provide an external prostate massage through the perineum.

A good choice for the novice and a favorite of the advanced user, with continued use and improved muscle action it provides a progressively great prostate massage.
•  For beginning and experienced users
•  Ribbed stem
•  Standard perineum tab
•  Polished to hold lubricant for better movement
•  Sue Johanson's Top 10 Toys of 2003
•  One of Playgirl Magazine sex columnist's two favorite toys for men.

All Aneros models are made in the USA from FDA approved materials.

Aneros SGX for beginner and all men, especially those men shorter than 5’6”    Aneros SGX

The SGX is the smallest Aneros model, originally developed for the Asian market and geared toward men 5’6” and shorter.  The insertion length of the SGX measures approximately 1/2 inch shorter ( a total of 3½ inches) than the MGX.  So do not be fooled to think that there is a huge sixe difference in these units.  Even so, its smaller size makes for easier insertion and use, and progressively rewarding symptom relief and improved sexual experiences.

However, this smaller unit might be a good starter model for those men who want to be conservative due to apprehensive about prostate stimulation.

Do not be confused about size of the different Aneros units.  Many times it happens that a short and smallish man prefers a larger Aneros device and a tall and large man prefers a smaller Aneros unit like the SGX; all size men can use all size Aneros massagers.  Ability to relax the anal muscles probably has more to do with the size of the device that a man will prefer to use.

The Aneros SGX is for men of all experience levels.   Men who receive good results from the SGX sometimes try a slightly larger model to see if their positive results might not increase.

The Aneros SGX, like its cousin the MGX, has a balanced head and ribbed stem with a thick, standard perineum tab.

• Great for prostate health, especially BPH
• For beginning users
• Smaller cousin of the MGX
• Ribbed stem for stability
• Standard perineum tab

Aneros Helix – for beginner and all men; tends to be the most effective model for prostate massage for most men        Aneros Helix

The best-selling Aneros Helix is part of the Next-Generation line (includes the Maximus and Eupho models.)  The Helix is aggressively shaped and angled, providing immediate pressure and tension on the prostate and surrounding area. It has a large, bulbous head and thin-angled stem for greater pivoting action. The tip of the head is also flatter, offering the most direct contact on the prostate, resulting in a more "aggressive" or vigorous prostate massage.

The Helix was designed based on research studies and user feedback surveys, and earned several additional design patents.  In terms of dimensions, the Helix is larger at the tip (1 1/16" versus 7/8 " on the MGX) and is more angled to provide a more vigorous massage. However, the mid-ridge is slightly smaller (1/16" smaller) on the Helix.  The redesigned P-Tab provides a more focused external prostate stimulation when massaging the perineum.

• For adventurous beginners and advanced users
• Next generation model
• Larger bulbous head with flat, wide head for more contact with prostate
• Strong angled stem for greater pivoting ability
• Dime perineum tab

Aneros Maximus – for Intermediate to advanced users       
Aneros Maximus

The Aneros Maximus is definitely true to its name.  It has a larger contact head, larger stem, and thick, standard perineum tab.  It is recommended for the advanced Aneros user and for men experienced with anal play, and is popular in the gay community.   The Maximus is similar in shape to the MGX and SGX, but expanded throughout.

The Maximus is part of Next-Generation line which includes the Helix and Eupho.  Its size makes it more difficult to insert and moves less than the other models.  Experienced Aneros users will have higher developed PC muscles, which makes it easier for the Maximus to move.  It provides greater pressure throughout the rectum and this makes it slightly more difficult to insert due to its size.  The Maximus has been reported to be a great performer during traditional intercourse.  Therefore we recommend the Maximus for men who are experienced with anal and prostate stimulation.

• Next-Generation Model
• Largest Next-Generation model
• Extra girth provides more anal canal stimulation
• Requires stronger PC sphincter muscles
• Great for prostate health

Aneros Eupho – for Advanced users       
Aneros Eupho

The delicately shaped Aneros Eupho is the most advanced model, at least based on the most number of patents it holds. It is recommended only for advanced Aneros users. It is proportionally the longest and slimmest model. It has a dime-style perineum tab and extremely thin head. These design features allow for the greatest movement of all Anderos models.  Therefore, the Eupho user must have highly developed PC muscles to control its movement. The thin head will “skip and dance” around the prostate during use, creating subtler sensations than other models.

This model of Aneros stimulator was not designed as much for prostate massage benefits, but for intense sexual stimulation.

Due to its advanced design, the Aneros Eupho is best reserved for experienced users who have developed their technique through experience and exercise with other models.

• Next-Generation Model
• Most delicate, agile and advanced model
• Thin stem requires strong PC sphincter muscles
• Dime perineum tab
• Polished to hold lubricant for better movement

Aneros Progasm – for Intermediate to Advanced users

The Aneros Progasm is the newest and largest member of the Aneros family.  It was created due to  popular demand for an even larger model than the Maximus. The result is a large model that can move easily because it is still agile due to design features.  It has a newly designed round perineum tab and also boasts a Kundalini "K-Tab." The "K-Tab" adds sensations up and down your back that are complementary to the sensations from the prostate.

Mobility of each Aneros model is achieved through PC muscle contraction and relaxation is the key to success for prostate massage and sexual stimulus.  Despite that it is the largest of the Aneros units, the Progasm moves inside the man's body to provide a robust prostate massage for incredible pleasure.

• For advanced and experienced users
• Largest Aneros model, but is very mobile
• Round perineum tab design
• Kundalini "K-Tab" provides additional sensations

Peyronie’s Disease and Baby Boomers

Peyronie’s disease: male health problem no one knows about

If you are a member of the baby boomer generation and have never heard of Peyronie’s (pay-row-neez) disease, you are not alone. However, if you are a male baby boomer or married to one, you are in the prime age group to experience a problem you know nothing about. This is so because Peyronies disease primarily affects men between 50 to 65 years of age, although an age range of 18 to 80 years has been reported, with an average age at onset of 53. Few people know about the problem until they need Peyronie’s disease treatment. This is why it is important for all baby boomers to know about, and how to avoid, it because this health problem can easily ruin your life. Peyronie’s disease remains one of the most perplexing and difficult urological diseases to treat; it has been called “the doctor’s nightmare”. Most everything about this condition (cause, progression, symptoms, age distribution, response to treatment) is variable and unique to the man who has it. The great variability of Peyronie’s disease that makes it difficult to study and to understand, also makes it almost impossible to treat like other medical conditions. It is a complex problem that is much more common than most people realize. Estimates suggest that up to eight out of 100 men over the age of 40 have Peyronie’s disease – that is a lot of people worldwide – and still only a small percent of people have ever heard of it. People are reluctant to discuss this problem because it involves the male organ. For this reason it is difficult to develop accurate information and statistics, especially since men are so shy on one hand, yet also inclined to exaggerate.

Definition of Peyronie’s disease

Peyronie’s disease can best be understood as an exaggerated wound healing in response to an injury in which an excessive amount of Peyronie’s scar tissue develops within the man’s shaft. Peyronie’s disease (also known by over 12 different names, among which is “iduratio penis plastica”) is very special disorder of the connective tissue in which fibrous “scars” or “plaques” develop usually after direct injury. This Peyronie’s plaque occurs in a special tissue of the shaft known as the tunica albuginea, a fibrous chamber or envelope that surrounds the two penile cylindrical shaped masses of spongy tissue known as the corpora cavernosa. The corpora cavernosa enlarge during sexual excitement, and the tunica albuginea covering, are designed to expand and elongate. If there is fibrous scar or plaque material in the tunica albuginea, the expansion and elongation cannot develop properly resulting in bending, weakness, shortening and incomplete filling of the organ. Sometimes this distortion is mild (just a few degrees) and does not affect the ability to perform, while at other times the distortion can be extreme (more than 90 degrees) resulting in greatly adverse consequences. A certain degree of normal penile curvature can and does occur in some men. This is a benign and natural condition many men are born with, commonly referred to as congenital curvature; this is not Peyronie’s disease.

Peyronie’s disease signs and symptoms

Four common findings of Peyronie’s disease:

  1. Pain – caused by inflammation and stretching of internal tissues in response to injury and distortion; can be present constantly or only during erection
  2. Nodule or mass formation – variable size lumps or elongated cords can develop in one or multiple areas; sometimes these are difficult or impossible to locate depending on the density, depth and size of the scar formation
  3. Curvature or distortion – caused by presence of one or more nodules or masses of scar tissue in the tunica albuginea, preventing normal expansion during erection; can be minor to gross in appearance
  4. Reduced sexual ability – due to physical distortion that prevents penetration or due to reduced firmness that also prevents penetration (erectile dysfunction).

The onset of Peyronie's disease symptoms can be sudden or slow, but often appears within a month or two after direct injury. The pain of Peyronie’s disease is extremely variable; from hardly noticeable to the kind of pain that prevents sleep. Peyronie’s pain is worse in the beginning, usually gradually improving over time – improvement in a few weeks while others continue for years. For these reasons Peyronie’s pain is not a reliable way to judge the severity or calculate the time for eventual recovery. Even though Peyronie’s disease is a male health problem, women are also affected by it. They are indirectly and adversely affected by the erectile dysfunction, organ curvature and distortion that make intercourse often impossible, as well as loss of organ size that often occurs over time. Additionally, and perhaps even to a greater degree than men, woman bear the brunt of the mood swings, anger, brooding and ill-temper that accompany their partner’s Peyronies problem.

Treatment of Peyronie’s disease

There is no standard or accepted medical Peyronie’s cure since no drug is proven to eliminate the scar within the shaft. The only accepted and available medical treatment is Peyronie's disease surgery. However, given enough time after Peyronie’s surgery the condition will only re-appear in a worsened presentation. This surgical outcome is made bleaker by knowing that even the first Peyronie’s surgery can result in total loss of sensation (anesthesia), increased pain and increased curvature and greater scar formation than before surgery, and in some cases amputation. The Peyronie’s Disease Institute has specialized for the last eight years in the use of Alternative Medicine therapies and techniques that are found to be successful in perhaps 60-80% of cases. None of the therapies are known to result in adverse reactions or side effects. For more information about the Alternative Medicine approach, visit Peyronie’s disease treatment.

Prevention of Peyronie’s disease

With so many variable aspects of this problem to consider, it is important to know that in addition to everything else, there is no universal agreement about the cause of Peyronies. Some say that injury alone cannot start the problem as we have described above, but that other genetic and metabolic factors must also be present. The Peyronie’s Disease Institute takes the position that this is true. However, if a man never sustains direct injury to the area he is far less likely to develop Peyronies. With age not working in the favor of any baby boomer couple, it is important to evaluate all situations in which direct injury can affect this area – especially sexual activity. This requires that special caution is exercised if a baby boomer gentleman finds he no longer has the usual firmness he previously possessed (erectile dysfunction). Attempting intercourse with a partially flaccid organ can result in sudden buckling or abrupt bending during insertion or the sex act itself. Another way to prevent injury is to modify the techniques used during sexual relations. The single most common injury that starts Peyronie’s disease occurs when the female partner is on top, and she loses hold of him while she thrusts down, jamming and painfully bending him against her upper thigh. To avoid this kind of injury it is important to not use any female-superior position, but to use other techniques in which physical contact is controlled, firm and not likely to disengage during activity. Even if baby boomers have never heard of this terrible condition that robs a couple of one of the greatest pleasures of life, it happens every day. Now that you know about Peyronie’s disease you can do a lot to protect the best years of your life. Dr. Theodore Herazy has practiced Alternative Medicine for over 40 years, and has directed the Peyronie’s Disease Institute for the last eight years. He has written two books about this problem, “Peyronie’s Disease Handbook” and “Peyronie’s Disease and Sex.”
