Dtwarren describes the Aneros as providing a slight improvement in EQ (erection quality). Regain says it helps sexual health and overall wellbeing. Thinktank refers to 'rewiring' the prostate (and nerves in the perineum, I'd guess, for guys who've had a prostatectomy).
I guess I'm wondering if those who've successfully used an Aneros (PS-2, etc) could explain exactly how prostate massage and hands-free, whole-body orgasms will help with EQ? What are the physiological mechanics? The instructions at High Island Health say that it's important that "the perineum abutment presses gently against the perineum acupressure point." < http://www.highisland.com/pm_instructions.php
> Acupressure is a method from Daoist/eastern medicine. Apart from getting the yin-yang of my taint in balance, there may be a more scientific explanation.
For example, the few times I've worn a thong, the mild stimulation to the anus and perineum throughout the day will make my whole reproductive tract a bit more sensitive and "on edge," making it somewhat easier to get an erection. So does an Aneros help merely by stimulating the nerves? What's the advantage of that over simply wanking or edging? ("Edging" is wanking without going past the PONR, or "Point Of No Return.")
Simple use of the Aneros can massage out a few drops of prostatic fluid. It isn't an orgasmic ejaculation; it's a basic prostate massage like a urologist might do. However, the instructions at HIH claim that it isn't necessary to have any fluid pressed out, let alone ejaculated. They say that the main benenfit is improved blood circulation. If that's the case, I can see where regularly using an Aneros might help blood circulation for erectile function. But wouldn't pumping do the same thing, albeit focusing on the penis alone and not the abdominal floor?
One last question. An Aneros might provide nerve stimulation and blood circulation, but is it worth the time to try and have "whole body orgasms?" How would this help fight off ED?
