My Verdict

Overall, I really enjoy the Aneros Progasm. While not my go-to prostate massager, the Progasm is in constant rotation with the rest. I highly recommend the Progasm as a second or third prostate massager, especially for someone who has been using other Aneros devices. Compared to the old Aneros Progasm, the new design has all of the good and greatly improves on the bad. If you already have the old model, it is still worth picking up the new Progasm. If you are looking to move into a Progasm and don't yet have one, I would recommend skipping the old model and jumping into this new one.

Buy, if you...

  1. Have experience with plugs and massagers and are comfortable with a larger size.
  2. Are looking for a fuller feeling than the smaller Aneros massagers.
  3. Want to use silicone lube for use in the water.
  4. Want a prostate massager for use during sex.

Don't buy, if you...

  1. Don't have a prostate to massage.
  2. Feel like your current Aneros massager isn't a good fit for you and are chasing the "perfect" model.
  3. Have never used any kind of plug or prostate massager before.
  4. Want a massager that moves freely to massage the prostate.

About The Aneros Progasm

Aneros prostate massagers are some of the most pleasurable toys on the market. Their shape is balanced to respond to muscle contractions for a hands-free prostate massage. The new Aneros Progasm Black Ice is a redesign of Aneros' original Progasm Ice model, keeping everything that made the original Progasm great, Aneros improved on the areas where the old model was lacking. The larger size of the Progasm gives more of a filling sensation while its shape is aimed at more focused prostate stimulation.

Pros

  • Smooth, slick, non-porous plastic
  • Can use any type of lube, including oils and silicone
  • Size fills you up
  • Puts a lot of pressure on the prostate
  • Stays in throughout sex
  • The P and K-tabs are rounded balls and are very comfortable

Cons

  • A little large for beginners
  • Doesn't move freely automatically

My personal experience with the Aneros Progasm

My Personal Experiences with Aneros Progasm

The original Aneros Progasm was my second Aneros device, after the Helix Trident. I felt at the time that the Helix Trident was too small, not working for me, and that I needed something bigger to hit my prostate. Even though I was incorrect about the Helix, the Aneros Progasm was instantly amazing. I went back to the Progasm often but there was one major drawback: It would come flying out during orgasm when having sex. Then, Aneros redesigned the Progasm to get the product I am reviewing today: the New Aneros Progasm. But, it’s still just called the Progasm.

Progasm Black Ice

The new Progasm improves upon the old in two ways. First, Aneros got rid of the flat tab on the bottom of the device. I don’t know what this thing did but if you forgot about it and sat up, you were in for a shock. Second, they subtly redesigned the shape so that it stays nestled firmly in place leaving you free to enjoy your orgasm.

Progasm Is Bigger

The main draw to the Progasm is its size, especially for those coming from the butt plug world.  At first, the smaller Aneros prostate massagers feel too small to most people familiar with plugs, the Helix Trident definitely did to me. The Progasm fills that gap (no pun intended). In the realm of things, the Progasm is not a large toy, it’s just bigger than its Aneros peers. Right off the bat, I felt the pressure against my prostate and for a while this was my go-to toy for prostate relaxation. Its larger girth puts more pressure on the prostate so you don’t have to wait as long for the buildup that prostate massage usually takes to reach the pleasure.

But Still Easy to Use

I would not recommend the Progasm for most beginners, but to the adventurous ones and anyone with anal experience, I say go for it. The slick ABS Plastic material that is responsible for the “Ice” in the name is very smooth and makes insertion super easy. Once coated in lube, the Progasm slides right into place and gets to work on you pleasure spot. Using just the Progasm is pleasurable enough, but my favorite way to utilize this device is to warm up with it for a while, then switch to one of the smaller devices like the Helix or MGX. The Progasm gets things opened and loose which then allows the smaller toy to move more freely. My second favorite use of the Progasm is during sex. The more focused pressure makes sex and orgasm way more intense.

My perspective on the design of the Aneros Progasm

Aneros Progasm My perspective on the design of the Aneros Progasm

The redesigned Aneros Progasm takes all of the best parts of its predecessor and improves on some of the drawbacks. The slick "Ice" material that the Progasm is made of allows the device to move freely without resistance. The ball-style K and P-tabs greatly reduce irritation and the slight size increase makes the device hit the right spot to stay in place.

The Usability of the Aneros Progasm

While smaller than a lot of plugs out there, the Aneros Progasm is less of a beginner toy but still easy for most people to insert. There are no moving parts and your body does most of the work. The Progasm is a toy that you could insert, relax, and enjoy the pleasure.

Quality Verdict: How does Aneros Progasm Measure Up?

As with all of the Aneros products, the quality of the Progasm is superb. The "Ice" material is strong and slick; it feels like glass without the chance of shattering.

Evaluating the Price Point of the Aneros Progasm

Aneros Progasm Evaluating the Price Point of the Aneros Progasm

At about $60, the Aneros Progasm is a good value. It's not a cheap toy, but for the quality, it outperforms many toys over $100. The Progasm will be with you for a long time as it has no chance of wearing out.

The Aneros Progasm: Does it Deliver on Pleasure?

Aneros Progasm The Aneros Progasm: Does it Deliver on Pleasure?

The Aneros Progasm is larger then the other Aneros devices, limiting its performance in massaging the prostate by moving. Where the Progasm shines, however, is in how it fills the volume and keeps constant pressure on the prostate.

The Art of Presentation: Packaging Explored

Aneros Progasm The Art of Presentation: Packaging Explored

Aneros' packaging is elegant and well designed. The box looks like a book and latches with magnets when shut. Inside, the Progasm rests in a form-fitting cradle which can be removed to store multiple toys discretely.

How to care for the materials of the Aneros Progasm

Aneros Progasm How to care for the materials of the Aneros Progasm

The Aneros Progasm is made of some new FDA approved, award winning plastic that is meant to replace glass. The feel is smooth and non-porous, making cleanup a breeze. Mild soap and water cleans the Progasm to a shine and the slick material has no way to hold on to bacteria.

FAQ

Will this hit my prostate better than the other, smaller Aneros devices?
More than likely, any of the Aneros devices will work for you, it just takes time. If you are looking at the Aneros Progasm because you think it will work better than the Helix or MGX, you are probably getting ahead of yourself on your prostate massage journey. The Progasm will not be a miracle that sends you directly into prostate orgasm, but it may be another tool in your belt to getting there.
Is the Aneros Progasm difficult to insert?
While the Progasm is larger than most of the other Aneros devices, it is not super huge in the realm of anal plugs. You will definitely need to relax but even beginners should be able to ease into it.
Which is better, the Progasm Classic or the Progasm Ice?
While the shapes are identical, the white plastic (classic) has its own appeal. It is a little more flexible but it's also more porous and textured. The Progasm Ice versions are stiffer and the K and P-tabs don't flex during use. The smooth plastic of the Ice makes cleanup really easy and will not show discoloring from use. Personally, I prefer the Ice.
How can I tell the difference between the Old Progasm and the New?
The old Aneros Progasm has a flat tab on the bottom. The New Progasm got rid of this tab and looks just like a larger version of the other Trident series Aneros models.
