Aneros: Maximus, Pleasure... Not quite!

While not living up to all its lofty marketing promises, the Aneros Maximus succeeds in being a stimulating and fun toy for anyone from anal newbies to butt-jutsu senseis. Not all users will be able to orgasm with this toy alone, but I've found it great for relaxing and enjoying a nice, slow session of self-pleasure. It's a lovely toy, but maybe not for the expected reasons.

Use

The Aneros Maximus is a plastic prostate massager manufactured by High Island Health, LLC. The Aneros line of toys is designed to stimulate the prostate for men, and is even touted as being able to bring hands-free orgasms! The Maximus is advertized as being one of the bulkier toys in HIH's line. The material is Polyoxymethylene (POM), which is a completely non-porous and extremely stiff type of plastic. The Maximus can be inserted with the aid of any type of anal-friendly lubricant, with or without prior stretching.

The Aneros line of toys all have a safe and elegantly-designed base, so there is no worry about the toy becoming "lost" inside the butt. The toy is packaged as being geared toward "Advanced" users, however I found its small size was not at all challenging, and should not be a deterrent for anal newbies. Given a relaxed state of mind (one of the purposes of this toy!) and proper lubrication, I think everybody should be able to handle this little guy with no discomfort at all.

Now to actually massage the prostate, you must contract your anal muscles slowly with the toy fully inserted. Your anal muscles will make the toy pivot, and the curved end of the toy will rub against the p-spot. I find the best sensations occur for me when I'm lying on my side in bed. As a tip, this toy works best when the user is already aroused! I think this has something to do with the p-spot hardening and becoming more sensitive the more the user is turned on.

Material / Texture

As mentioned above, the material is a type of plastic called POM, or sometimes acetal. Out of the box, the material has no discernible smell or taste. The texture is flawlessly smooth. Since the material is non-porous, it is unlikely to hold scents even after extensive use. This toy is also phthalates-free, so it is completely body-safe. The Aneros line of toys is very firm, and the only part I can bend even slightly is the slender handle on one end of the toy's base. Since the material itself has no texture, I would consider this toy very beginner-friendly.

Honestly, I think the material used for the Maximus is great. For its purposes, being very rigid is a huge plus and definitely helps deliver maximum p-spot pleasure.

Design / Shape / Size

Whether it's the most enjoyable prostate massager out there or not, there's no denying that the Aneros Maximus is a beautiful toy. The design is artistic and creative while still maintaining a design that fits the rectum very well. The shape of this toy is fun, and the "perineum tab" that faces the front when inserted can be felt and did help increase stimulation for me. A minor gripe I have is that the handle feels a little too thin and flimsy for my big hands, so I've instead opted to insert and remove the toy by wrapping my index and middle fingers around the top of the base on either side of the shaft (like a kinky Wolverine).

The toy at its widest point measures only three inches (3") in circumference and one inch (1") in diameter, which in my opinion makes it a safe starter toy despite the manufacturer's designation of it as an "Advanced" model. The insertable length is four inches (4"), which is roughly comparable to the length of an average adult male's index finger or adult woman's middle finger.

While the design is not discreet to those who are familiar with sex toys, I don't imagine it is obvious enough to be easily identified by very young or clueless people. With its design and small size, the Maximus (and by extension any of the Aneros line of massagers) is very travel-friendly.

Performance

The best part of this toy is that, for the most part, it works! Upon first inserting the Maximus, I can immediately feel its end pressing against my p-spot. The suggested contractions can bring a lot of pleasure, and this is a great toy for longer, low-intensity sessions. I've found taking my time with this toy with the goal of relaxing rather than climaxing right away allows me to enjoy this toy a lot more.

Here's my biggest complaint with the toy: The somewhat less-than-honest advertizing on the part of the manufacturer. The Aneros toys - the Maximus being no exception - come with lofty claims of hands-free orgasms and even quotes of people saying things like it leading to "the best orgasm in my life!" Perhaps this is specific to my body, but I found it quite impossible to climax with only the toy for stimulation, no matter how many times I tried or how long the session was. While I still love the toy for its ability to give me a "+1" to my orgasms and relaxing stimulation along the way, I am disappointed (but not especially surprised) that the Maximus didn't work for me the way some of the marketing speech led me to believe it would.

My suggestion: Use this massager for unwinding after a stressful day, or for adding some unique stimulation to regular masturbation, oral sex, or a hand job by a partner. I was not able to come hands-free without "edging" first; the same method I've found with my G-rider.

Care and Maintenance

Since the Aneros Maximus is created out of a type of plastic, the best way to clean this toy is using warm water and antibacterial soap. The material scores an 8/10 on the EF material safety scale due in part to its non-porous nature. The fantastic thing about this little massager is its compatibility with all lube types: oil, silicone, or water-based lubricants will all play nicely with Aneros toys!

Personally, I store the Maximus in its original packaging, which is excellently crafted and has a form-fitting plastic indent to place the toy in between sessions. This toy is very easy to care for, and its material does not make hair or other debris easily stick or cling to the surface. This is by far one of my easiest and most stress-free toys to clean after use.

Packaging

To be perfectly honest, I was blown away by how classy and professional the Maximus' packaging was. As long as the giftee understands that he will be receiving a butt toy, this toy is totally giftable in its original packaging. The small instruction pamphlet inside the red magnetic book-type folding case is succinct but very clear on how to best make use of your new toy.

As I mentioned earlier, the package can be used for storage, but it is definitely not the most space-efficient if you are crunched for storage space. This is my ninth toy, and it - by far - has the most beautiful packaging I have seen so far. I have to hand it to High Island Health; they really carry the hype for this toy from beginning to end.

Overall, the elegant red and black packaging left me actually saying, "They did a great job with this!" as I was unboxing my new acquisition. I hope they paid their designer well because they seriously are awesome. Haha, I'll stop geeking out about the packaging now.
    • Good for storage
    • Not discreet
    • Very informative
Follow-up commentary
After having this massager around for a few months, I have definitely warmed up to it some more. This little toy is great for massaging my sweet spot when I'm not in the mood for the intense stretching that comes along with more challenging toys. The Aneros maximus is very beginner-friendly and feels pretty great, all things considered. I love using this toy in order to relax around the house after a hard day! However, at its price I would only recommend buying this if you manage to catch a very good sale; this massager is not worth the $50 it is priced at.
