Why hadn't I tried anal play before? It never really occurred to me that it'd be pleasurable, or enhance erections, or produce a more intense and longer lasting orgasm. It just didn't come into conscious thought. These are three things that the Nexus line of g-spot toys claim to be able to help with.
First, a bit of advice for those who have never tried anal stimulation / massage before; do not try this with a partner until you know what you are doing. I tried with Tonia the first night I got the toy and it was an exercise in frustration. For about an hour and a half, part of the time I was able to relax but needed more lubricant, part of the time I felt a very intense expulsion feeling, part of the time everything just felt right but I couldn't move the g-spot massager in anymore. This is something you should start with solo, and then move on to use with a partner. I've been using this for a month and I'm still “flying solo”, but have found I enjoy it.
So I started out by using the Nexus Glide. Compared to the larger Neo, the glide is a little less tall, much less thick, and has a shorter perineum massage arm. Both massagers are made out of medical grade plastic which felt very sturdy and did not bend at all to pressure; it's a solid device. The surface of the Glide and the Neo are sort of a brushed plastic, not slick, but just rough enough to still be able to hold even with lubricant. You'll need to use a water based lubricant with these devices.
The first thing I noticed on insertion was that the varying width of the device (wide at the top, a little thinner half an inch down, wide again about an inch and a half, then thinner again with three ridges near the base of the device) was a fantastic design decision. My being completely new meant the initial insertion was going to be a hurdle to get over no matter what, and admittedly it was. But after that I had the initial wide nub in, there was some instant relief, I didn't have to maintain pressure for it to stay in, I could just relax and gauge how it felt.
It took a while, and a couple of personal sessions, for me to insert the Glide in all the way comfortably, but once I did I had an instant, involuntary erection. The metal ball bearing on the perineum point massage arm felt predictably cool but that seemed to enhance my awareness of it being there. It was easy to apply pressure and have the device massage both inside an out, which again seemed to trigger an even harder erection. (As I'm writing this I'm actually getting a little erection just remembering how it felt!) It took a few times, but the Glide definitely seemed to work as the company claims it would.
I've been able to play with the Neo a little, I find that I'm not quite ready for the added width and length yet, but it has the same design advantages that the Glide does. It feels the same, it functions the same, both of which I mean as compliments. It does have the longer perineum massage arm that ads a little more range to the massage, I was able to get it up to the base of my testicles and play a little there. I'm sure the more I work with it, the more fun it will be.
So I haven't graduated to using this while being with a partner yet, that's going to take some more self-training and control exercises. But when inserted, both devices stay in relatively well, and the ribbing near the base does stimulate a bit when playing, going in and coming out just a little, it's subtle enough to not notice, but notice at the same time.
Cleaning the device was no problem at all. There are no real nooks and crannies to get anything stuck in, and there's a tool that comes with the Neo and Glide that lets you pop out the metal ball and rinse that, and the area around the ball with no issues at all.
I have nothing but compliments for the design, I didn't have any real issues with use that didn't relate to me being a complete new comer to male g-spot massage and anal insertion. These devices seemed perfect for introducing me to g-spot stimulation. If you've never tried g-spot stimulation before, give it a try, and if you give it a try, use the Nexus Neo and Nexus Glide, they feel great and are very easy to use.
