Electro stimulation, sometimes known as “electro sex” is a special type of erotic stimulation using electrical current. Since electricity on itself can be dangerous, it is vital to use specialized devices designed for sexual purpose.
Electro stimulation is popular among BDSM practitioners, especially those who like painful pleasures or medical toys.
That being said, electro stimulation doesn’t have to be extreme or painful. Many people enjoy the tingling sensation on their erogenous spots, so if you find this sort of stimulation arousing, you should try it to see if it works for you.
However, before you start, it’s important to be informed and know how to keep yourself and your partner safe. Keep in mind: it’s vital to use only specialized devices and toys for this type of stimulation. Never play with electricity on your own! Use special toys made for this purpose and inform yourself about the safe practices of electro stimulation before you start!
How Does it Work?
Electro sex works by sending electrical impulses to erogenous zones, typically using electrodes or clamps connected to a specialized box. There are many different electro sex devices and many different settings, so there are numerous sensations you can experience. The type of sensation and pleasure will largely depend on the type of the device, the setting, how long the stimulation lasts, and more.
This type of devices are typically used on genitals and anal area to stimulate the sensitive nerve endings for the erotic purposes. This is the safest way to use electro stimulation. As a general rule, the electrical current should never be used above the shoulders. Nipple stimulation using electro devices is complex. While it can sometimes be used it is important not to run the electrical current near the heart. For this reason, elector nipple stimulation is not recommended for beginners! Stick to the genital area before you try anything above the waist!
Before you start, it’s important to get informed about the safe practices and how to use your electro sex toy properly. It is vital to keep yourself and your partner safe during use!
How Does it Feel?
There are many ways to describe electro stimulation, which depends on people’s individual preferences and the type of electro stimulation used. Most of the specialized devices come with different settings, so there are many different sensations you can achieve. As usual, it’s important to get to know your body and see what works the best!
On the basic level, electro stimulation feels like a gentle tingling. It should not be painful nor uncomfortable, so if this is what you like you don’t have to worry about pain. Electro stimulation may sound like an extreme kink, but those who like pain are not the only ones who can enjoy it. The low tingling sensations should add something new to your sex life and they feel very pleasurable to many people, so you can stop at this level if this is all you like.
On stronger levels, the tingling turns into pulsating effect. In a way, it’s similar to pulsating vibrator toys, only stronger. Electro stimulation spreads to a wider area than vibrators, so chances are that your body will feel it more strongly.
The more experienced users or those who like painful pleasures sometimes like to use electro stimulation at the highest settings and on wide areas of the body. If this is something that appeals to you, there is no reason not to try it. However, it’s still advisable to start small and build your way from there. Start with the lowest settings and see how it feels before you try something more intense.
