In this guide, we’ll teach you everything you need to know about erotic electrostimulation, from how to get started to the areas where it works best.
Let’s get started.
What is electrostimulation?
Electrostimulation, also known as e-stim, is a sex toy technology that stimulates the body with electrical impulses. When used on the genitals, electro-stim can produce intensely pleasurable sensations ranging from tingling to an explosive orgasm.
Many people enjoy using electro-stim during solo play or with a partner because it can add excitement to any sexual encounter at any level.
Electrostimulation and sex work
For people who are new to the scene, it can be a bit daunting to know where to start. However, as an escort who offers this service, there are a few things you can keep in mind to make sure your clients have a positive experience.
First, it is important only to use devices that are specifically designed for erotic electrostimulation. While some BDSM enthusiasts may be tempted to experiment with equipment not intended for this purpose, it is important to remember that electrical current can be dangerous if not used properly.
Second, make sure you have a good understanding of the different settings and how they will affect your client. You want to avoid accidentally giving them a shock that is too intense or makes them uncomfortable. So, start slowly and increase the pressure as desired by the client.
Finally, communication is key. Be sure to discuss your client’s limits and desired level of intensity before starting any session. By following these simple guidelines, you can ensure that your clients have a safe and pleasurable experience with erotic electrostimulation.
7 things you need to know about electrostimulation
There’s something about electrostimulation that just makes people tingle. Whether it’s the idea of being shocked or the prospect of increased pleasure, electrostimulation is a popular topic in the world of sex. But what do you really need to know about it?
Here are seven things to know before getting started.
1. You cannot use electrodes on all parts of your body
Erotic electrostimulation is a lot of fun, but it’s important to remember that you can’t use electrodes on all parts of your body.
The genitals and other sensitive areas are full of nerve endings, which makes them very sensitive to electrical stimulation. In contrast, the muscles of the arms and legs are much less sensitive, so using electrodes on those areas is generally less pleasurable.
Also, electrodes should never be placed on or near the head, neck, chest, or heart. These areas are potential danger zones for electrical stimulation as they could interfere with your pacemaker or create an electric current near your heart and be lethal.
That being said, everyone is different, and some people enjoy stimulating non-genital areas. If you’re curious about trying erotic electrostimulation, start slowly with less sensitive areas of the body.
2. Never e-stim while drunk or on drugs
Whether you’re using a simple hand-held unit or a more complex system designed specifically for erotic play, the feeling of pins-and-needles racing across your skin can be immensely pleasurable.
However, you should never stim while on drugs or alcohol, as these can increase your threshold for pain, which means you might use too much intensity without realising it.
Doing so could result in serious injury, so you will want to abstain from using any electric stimulation device if you’ve been drinking or taking drugs.
3. Electrostimulation can be lethal
While erotic electrostimulation is a unique way to discover new sensations, it’s a dangerous activity that can lead to death if not practised correctly. The electrical current produced by the equipment can cause cardiac arrest. In addition, the electrical impulses can cause muscles to contract involuntarily, leading to respiratory failure.
Back in 2012, a man in New York died of electrocution while masturbating with an e-stim device.
For these reasons, and because it isn’t as safe as it seems without knowing how to use it, it is essential to understand the risks and take steps to minimise them.
4. Talk to your partner before starting
Erotic electrostimulation is a bit of an unknown for most people. It involves the use of electricity to stimulate the body’s nerve endings, which can lead to some pretty intense sensations.
If you’re thinking of trying it out, always talk to your partner before you start. You’ll share this experience, and everyone must be on the same page before things get started.
Secondly, make sure you have conductive gel and sexual lubricant and learn how to use the device correctly. And lastly, be prepared to experiment a bit. Erotic electrostimulation is all about finding what feels good, so don’t be afraid to try different things until you find something that really gets you going.
5. Don’t use cheap devices
Cheap devices are a bad idea when it comes to erotic electrostimulation. Not only aren’t they as safe as they should be for their purpose, but they often don’t deliver the promised results. If you’re looking for a quality device, make sure to do your research and buy from a reputable manufacturer.
The last thing you want is to end up with a low-quality device that doesn’t deliver the results you’re looking for. With a little bit of research, you can find the perfect device to help take your sex life to the next level.
6. The feeling isn’t the same for everyone
For some people, the sensation of e-stim is similar to that of getting a massage. The electrical impulses cause the muscles to contract and relax, which can lead to a feeling of relaxation and increased blood flow.
The electrical stimulation causes the nerves to fire and creates pleasurable sensations. And for some people, the sensation is a mix of both relaxation and pleasure. For others, the sensation is more akin to receiving oral sex.
No matter what the sensation is like, one thing is for sure – erotic electrostimulation will definitely drive you crazy.
7. Use electro-conductive gels to avoid marks and bruises
Anyone into BDSM knows electric play can be a seriously hot way to get your kink on.
No matter if you’re using a wand massager to tease your partner’s erogenous zones or enjoying some hands-free fun with an electro butt, electric sex toys can add a whole new level of excitement to your bedroom play.
However, it’s important to use a quality electro-conductive gel when playing with any kind of electric sex toy. This will help ensure that you don’t experience any discomfort or marks on your skin. You should also avoid using electrical stimulation on any open wounds or broken skin.
What toys can you use for erotic electrostimulation?
Although any toy that conducts electricity can technically be used for erotic electrostimulation, certain toys are specifically designed for this purpose.
For men, there are vibrating rings that can be worn around the base of the penis. These rings help to increase blood flow and arousal, leading to more intense orgasms.
For women, there are vibrating dildos that can be used for both vaginal and anal stimulation. These dildos come in various shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your specific needs – just like regular sex toys, but with some electrodes.
And for both men and women, there are electro-anal butts for both solo and partner play. These butt plugs deliver electric shocks that lead to unbelievable pleasure.
So, there you have it – a beginner’s guide to erotic electrostimulation. We hope this piqued your interest and that you’ll try it with someone you trust. Remember, always start slow, communicate throughout the process (if you’re not alone), and don’t forget the lube.
