Review: Aneros for Him Peridise Set

Aneros for Him Peridise Set Anal Sex Toy Photo

I had been told one or two details about the Aneros for Him Peridise Set. I figure it would be worthwhile taking a closer look to see what they are all about, as they aren’t exactly running off the shelf. For something that looks like quite a high end product and is priced as such, I’d better find out what the story is!

I am by no means an expert in butt stuff. In fact, aside from the odd pinky slip from time to time, I have virtually no experience in the wonderful world that is prostate stimulation. Although having said that, I am the type that will more or less try anything once if not a few times just to make sure.

In comes the Aneros for Him Peridise Set. It comes in a set of four. Looking at the box, it displays the four sort-of lumpy tear drop shaped implements which increase in width in small integrals. It is fairly safe to assume having a pack of 4 anal stimulators is to cater for those who have precisely zero butt stuff experience and might be understandably apprehensive about sticking something in their holiest of holies for the first time. It appears this set is for those willing or hoping to work up to larger sized anal sex toys which is a good idea.

To be fair they don’t look particularly intimidating which is probably great for someone who is thinking of dipping their proverbial toes into the realm of anal play. Neat. But by the same token I can’t imagine they would look very exciting for someone who is accustomed to putting things in their butt. They’re pretty plain looking and even the largest size is quite small, when compared to regular butt plugs.

Okay, so at this stage I would have guessed this would be a fairly entry-level product… BUT according to their description, the sex toy is actually designed to trigger a peristaltic response within the body. This means the muscles in the anus are going to involuntarily contract and relax alternately which will in turn enhance the sensations of it being in there. This will increase blood circulation, therefore release more endorphins into the body. To put it plain and simple, your body will simultaneously try to both pull this in and push it out which will increase the stimulation. It will feel awesome! Ok, that’s pretty cool…

Sex Toy: Aneros for Him Peridise Set

 

Although I can’t possibly imagine what that feels like, the sex toy is beginning to sound like something I want to try and could possibly get into. After reading a few bits and pieces online it actually is beginning to sound a little bit more of a training tool. Not too dissimilar to Kegel exercises and is meant to feel awesome at the same time. That’s pretty sweet. What IS annoying though is that the booklet included has very little information. For something that costs a decent chunk of change and can potentially provide awesome sensations and results, I would have thought they would have included a bit more information or perhaps an outline of how to achieve the best results. But to each their own, I suppose.

Sweet, this is all sounding pretty promising! You get an awesome feeling whilst strengthening certain muscles which could potentially lead to even more intense orgasms. It is a pretty discrete looking set toy to. Wow, I could get into this!

Oh wait. They’re hard plastic. I checked the box, checked the booklet and checked the website… I can’t find what these things are made of. Apparently the materials are FDA approved, but that’s all I can find. According to a review I found it’s made of a medical grade plastic polymer, which is all well and good but I wouldn’t mind getting that information from the actual manufacturer, not a random blog.

What the hell..? Look, I know I’m new to this but I still wouldn’t mind knowing exactly what’s going inside my body, particularly in the most delicate part of my body. But aside from that, it’s hard plastic?! I don’t really want to be probed where the sun doesn’t shine by something that’s rock hard. What if it snaps? Is it porous? Will it harbor gross bacteria? They have a flared base as most anal stimulators do. Is it going to hurt if I want to sit down while I’m using it?? If I’m going to shove something up my butt I would prefer it to have at least a little flex in the sex toy maybe even a silicone coating or something so it’s not quite so rigid.

All of a sudden I don’t know about the Aneros for Him Peridise Set anymore… I was pretty pumped for them until I got them out of the box… I have to say I’m a bit sceptical and a bit disappointed to say the least.

The Cool Stuff:

  • Great concept and from what I understand it is new technology.
  • It will give you a potentially awesome feeling with stronger orgasms.
  • It is unisex designed and unanatomical so all sexualities have a green light to try them out.

The Bad Stuff:

  • It is made from expensive plastic which is a bit of a gamble for something made out of god-knows-what. There is very little information about the material available from the manufacturer.

My Final Verdict: Am I still interested in trying them? Yes. Am I going to roll the dice and fork out $110 for the set? No. If they sent me home with a sex toy, I’d happily give them a whirl. I’m man enough to admit that I was wrong about my initial impression if that happens to be the case but I can’t get past the fact that the material might be a little unforgiving in and around my toosh. If you’re braver than me and got the cash by all means grab a set. I’m sure they will feel good but for aforementioned reasons I’m going to have to give this one a no. Aneros, if you’re reading this, release a set with a silicone outer layer and we’ll talk. Peace out.

Review: Surgilube

Surgilube Lubricant Photo

Surgilube is a sterile water-based lubricant which was specially formulated for surgical and gynaecological lubrication. The Surgilube formulation is very smooth and will provide lubrication and comfort when inserting objects into orifices of the human body. This makes it perfect for sounding and penis plug use.

What is sounding and penis plugs?

Sounding is the practice of placing a soft or firm object into the urethra for sexual pleasure and increased sexual gratification from the inside-out. A penis plug is similar to a urethral sound and come in many designs. Penis Plugs can be designed to be worn for some time with the ability to urinate and ejaculate with the plug still in place. Penis plugs are able to be utilised by women for urethral play due to the shorter overall length. Urethral sounding has moved from the medical field where probes were used to locate and remove obstructions, into bedrooms and the sex lives of many people. Stretching and intense sensations upon movement leading to orgasm are the goal of using sounds and plugs.

What Is The Urethra?

The urethra is the tube or duct by which urine is carried from the bladder, which stores urine before urination to the outside of the body. It is composed of muscle, skin cells and cells that produce mucous to protect against irritation from urine. In males the urethra also serves as the tube by which a man ejaculates and semen leaves the body. Another big difference between males and females is that of length with the male urethra being 20 centimetres long on average and the female urethra only 5 centimetres at most. This is one of the primary reasons why females tend to be at higher risk of urinary tract infections and at greater risk for bladder and kidney infections. This is important to understand when using sounds and penis plugs for sexual play.

There is a risk of causing irritation and micro tears to the urethra when using sounds and penis plugs even if done correctly. The irritation and micro tears that could occur make the urethra extremely susceptible to colonisation by foreign organisms that may have been introduced with the sounds or plugs. Introduction of foreign microbes into the urethra can lead to infection, pain and discomfort. In women especially due to their shorter length urethra it is extremely easy for the micro-organisms to make their way to the bladder and cause a bladder infection or even worse continue further along the urinary tract to the kidneys. In all instances a trip to a doctor is well advised as antibiotics will be needed. Given the longer length of the urethra in males it is harder for microbes to make their way as far as the bladder, placing them at less risk of adverse outcomes when sounding or using penis plugs. Urinating before and after sounding and plug use can help to minimise the risk by helping to flush any microbes that are stuck to the walls and entrance of the urethra.

Why Surgilube?

The formulation of Surgilube is bacteriostatic and antimicrobial. In simple terms this means that the lubricant contains ingredients to stop micro-organisms from reproducing as well as inhibiting the growth of other micro-organisms. In the case of Surgilube the agent used is chlorhexidine gluconate, which is the same ingredient that is used in the hospital setting to ensure risk of infection is minimised. Chlorhexidine gluconate is on the list of essential medicines according to the World Health Organisation and is used as a skin cleanser for surgical scrubs, hand rinses, surgical preparation and for skin wounds. It is important to note that chlorhexidine is used at different concentrations for these purposes. In Surgilube chlorhexidine is present at less than 1% of total ingredients and will not cause harm to the user by inhibiting all micro-flora found naturally on or in the person. No component of Surgilube is known to cause skin sensitisation. The amount used in Surgilube is still very effective against the growth of microbes.

The composition of Surgilube is Hypromellose, Propylene Glycol plus water and other trace ingredients including the chlorhexidine. In lay terms, the formulation is a mix of natural water soluble gums which are not messy, not sticky, does not have a fragrance and will not stain. Compare this to a typical ingredient list of a water-based lubricant: Glycerine, propylene glycol, purified water, hydroxy ethyl cellulose, lambda carrageenan, methyl and ethyl hydroxybenzoate, phenoxyethanol, emulsifying wax, sodium lactate, alpha tocopherol acetate, EDTA. The paired-back formulation of Surgilube is safe for even the most sensitive of people ensuring that the users comfort is maintained whilst minimising the risk of infections.

Surgilube is the essential lubricant in the toolkit of sex, masturbation, sounds and penis plugs and ensures that the user minimises their risk of adverse outcomes and infections.

Brent Corrigan Photo

Brent Corrigan will be coming to the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras. You will be able to find him on the 3rd of March at 6pm at Park Street Books, Level 2/44 Park Street, Sydney.

Come by Park Street Books to receive giveaways from Swiss Navy who have said everyone in attendance will get a free gift. Meet Brent Corrigan to enter into a competition to win 1 of 4 Brent Corrigan Bliss Signature Fleshjacks.

In honour of this exciting event, we thought we would explore a few facts about him. Brent Corrigan is one of the most popular gay adult movie stars in the world. However did you know that he is also an actor, singer and a director? He loves to direct in mainstream, general, indie and short films. In mainstream releases, Brent Corrigan uses his real name Sean Lockhart. The first popular theatre he starred in was a musical in 2007 which was called “Didn’t This Used To Be Fun”.

 

 

In 2007, Brent Corrigan starred in a comedy spoof titled “Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild”. Below is an excerpt from Wikipedia:

Another Gay Sequel: Gays Gone Wild! is the 2008 sequel to the 2006 comedy Another Gay Movie. It features five cast members from the first movie: Jonah Blechman (Nico Hunter), Ashlie Atkinson (Dawn Muffler), Scott Thompson (Mr. Wilson), Stephanie McVay (Mrs. Hunter), and Andersen Gabrych. It was released in only seven theatres and ran for only 10 weeks before going to DVD. This as due to it’s negative reception in contrast to the first film which developed a small cult following.

Nancy Sinatra, who sang the song “Another Gay Sunshine Day” for the first film received special thanks. Singer RuPaul announced on his website that he and Lady Bunny had recorded a song for the soundtrack that would be released as a single, but the producers of the film ultimately scrapped that song and instead utilized a solo by Lady Bunny. The song was not released as a single, instead replaced by the song “The Clap” by Perez Hilton. The duet of RuPaul and Lady Bunny was later released as a bonus track on RuPaul’s album Champion.

The Plot:

Dorky Andy (Jake Mosser), flamboyant Nico (Jonah Blechman), Jock Jarod (Jimmy Clabots) and nerdy Griff (Aaron Michael Davies) reunite in Fort Lauderdale for spring break. The plot revolves around a “Gays Gone Wild!” contest to see who can have sex with the most guys during the duration of spring break. The winner will be crowned “Miss Gay Gone Wild”.

While Andy seems to have no problem getting men to have sex with him, Nico hasn’t been attracting men at all. This prompts Nico in a frequent fantasy sequence involving a merman (Brent Corrigan). Andy is troubled, however when he falls hard for Luis (Euriamis Losada), a charmingly handsome yet innocent virgin. Jarod and Griff are now are a couple and are conflicted over whether or not to enter the contest themselves. Meanwhile, a shallow trio by the name of Jasper (Will Wikle, Brand Lim and Isaac Webster) seem to be very anxious to win the contest by any means.

In a subplot, the guys meet Perez Hilton on an airplane and Hilton pursues a young priest to the bathroom who hits his head, turning him into a religious zealot trying to dispel the gay activities going on. He is later hit in the head again and changes back.’

In 2008, Brent Corrigan starred in a short movie named “Tell Me” and a movie named “In The Closet”. The Closet was directed by Jodi Wheeler. In the movie he plays a shy, awkward young man who has his first ever sexual encounter with an older, experienced and jaded man. Unlike other nights that were dark and odd, this time the passion is shared. Souls are exposed and secrets are ultimately revealed.

In 2008, Brent Corrigan starred in a movie named “Milk”. Milk is a 2008 American biographical film based on the life of gay rights activist and politician Harvey Milk. Harvey was the first openly gay person to be elected to public office in California as a member of the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. Milk is directed by Gus Van Sant and written by Dustin Lance Black. The movie starred Sean Penn as Milk and Josh Brolin as Dan White who was a city supervisor who assassinated Milk and Mayor George Moscone. The film was released to much acclaim. Milk earned numerous accolades from film critics and guilds. Milk also received eight Academy Award nominations. The awards that were won included Best Picture and two awards for Best Actor. Penn won the award for best leading role and Black won the award for Best Original Screenplay.

In 2009, Brent Corrigan starred in the Hustler comedy and musical “The Big Gay Musical”. Below is an excerpt from Wikipedia:

‘The Big Gay Musical is a 2009 gay-themed musical-comedy film written by Fred M. Caruso and co-directed by Caruso and Casper Andreas. The film follows a brief period in the lives of two young actors, one who is openly gay, the other closeted to his parents. The openly gay actor struggles with whether he should be sexually promiscuous or seek a life partner, while the closeted one wonders if he should come out to his conservative, religious parents.

Throughout the film, there are a series of musical numbers with tap dancing angels, a re-telling of the Genesis story protests from televangelists, a deprogramming camp that tries to turn gay kids straight. By the end of the film, the characters realize that life would be better if they just accepted themselves the way they are.

Plot: Paul (Daniel Robinson) and Eddie (Joey Dudding) have just begun previews of an Off-Broadway musical titled “Adam & Steve: Just the Way God Made ‘Em”. Their lives mimic those of the characters they are playing on stage, in that Paul is himself seeking the ideal male partner and Eddie finds that his religious upbringing conflicts with his homosexuality. After his boyfriend dumps him for being accused of having HIV, though he does not, Paul decides he is through with relationships and wants to be promiscuous, or as he so eloquently sung, “I wanna be a slut.”. Eddie, meanwhile decides he must finally tell his conservative parents that he is gay. Eddie comes out to his family, who do not accept the news well. Paul turns to the Internet for dates, but can’t even get a decent one-night stand. However, Paul continually bumps into a fan who has developed romantic feelings for him, and after a series of disastrous one night stands, he starts dating Michael at the end of the musical’s opening night. Eddie’s religious parents, on a different note, decide to attend the musical because of a promise they made to their son, even though they are appalled by homosexuality and the theme of the show. As the play goes on though, they begin to believe that maybe they judged their son too harshly, and come to accept the fact that he is gay. Eddie’s parents make up with him at the end of the show’s opening night.’

Sister Roma Poses as Mary Magdalene

A fundraising event called the “Great District 8 Chili Cook-Off” on behalf of orphans in Chile which was sponsored by Rainbow World Fund. The Rainbow World Fund is an “an all-volunteer international humanitarian service agency based in the gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgender and friends community.”. The fundraising event was scheduled last Sunday afternoon at Ellard Hall, the parish hall of San Francisco’s Most Holy Redeemer Church located in the city’s 8th supervisorial district.

According to the press, the charitable event was scheduled to include the first public return of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to the Most Holy Redeemer Church since the 7th of October 2007. According to an article published in the Bay Area Reporter the “emcees for the event will be current District 8 Supervisor Bevan Dufty and Sister Roma of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence”. The Bay Area Reporter is one of the longest running and largest local newspapers that serve the LGBTQI communities. Two members of the group embarrassed San Francisco Archbishop George Niederauer when they presented themselves for communion in drag. The archbishop gave the self-described “queer nuns” communion but within a week, he had publicly apologized for his actions and issued a statement strongly critical of the group.

An important emcee at this event was Sister Roma. Sister Roma is a world famous drag queen, social rights activist of the LGBTQI community and an art director of gay adult movie studio “Hot House Entertainment”. In addition to being a professional adult movie director, Sister Roma has served as an emcee at the Folsom Street Fair, an annual San Francisco event that celebrated BDSM and leather subculture.This event concluded the city’s yearly Leather Pride Week. Sister Roma also co-hosts an online live-format talk show about the adult movie industry.

In 2006, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence described themselves as “the leading-edge order of queer nuns” alongside their official slogan is “go forth and sin some more”. The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence  were booted out of Ellard Hall which was the same parish hall where Sunday’s cook-off was scheduled. The group had leased Most Holy Redeemer’s parish hall for bingo games to raise funds for HIV/AIDS programs, until the chancery ordered them evicted,

In 2008, Sister Roma posed as Mary Magdalene in a now notorious poster that promoted that year’s Folsom Street Fair. The poster was a take-off of Leonardo da Vinci’s “Last Supper” with men and women in leather attire posed as the apostles. Scattered around the table were various whips and BDSM restraint devices. The poster provoked outrage among Christians all over the country.

Sister Roma also acted as emcee at the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence’s annual “Hunky Jesus” contest. The contest took place on Easter Sunday which mocked the crucifixion of Jesus. Men dressed up as what they thought Jesus would have looked like and prizes were awarded for what was considered to be the best costume. The 2010 winner was Junky Jesus, who wore a loincloth covered with syringes.

Sister Roma is coming to Australia for the 2017 Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras and will be attending a meet and greet at 6pm on the 3rd of March 2017. The event will be hosted at Park Street Books which is located on Level 2, 44 Park Street, Sydney. Come along to this free event and meet one of the hardest working people supporting the LGBTQI community.
