The Beginning of Aneros
The year was 1994 in Tokyo, Japan…where a certain Japanese urologist had been providing patients with in-office prostate massage for the treatment of chronic prostatitis, chronic pelvic pain syndrome and the symptoms of BPH. Having had great success with it in his practice, he
theorized if patients were able to do this in the privacy of their own homes…they might do it more often, to even greater benefit. With that he sought out and came into contact with a Japanese inventor living in the United States.
By 1996 the first hands-free, self-powered prostate massager was invented and patented. Anatomically designed, this product was made to work in harmony with a man’s body providing focused prostate massage from anal contractions only.
For the next several years the product sold well as a health device, receiving rave reviews and testimonials from satisfied users. At the same time an increasing number of these people began contacting the company about a peculiar “side-effect”. Namely, a completely unexpected, very intense “dry orgasm” as a result of using the product. Over time so many of these reports came streaming in, the company realized that they to start marketing the massager for pleasure as well. With that the ANEROS brand was born.
