Electro-stimulation is a practice where people attach electrodes to their genitals and hit the on switch. Painful? Joyful? We have questions.
Sexual practices can get crazy and adding electricity into the mix can reasonably imply that it’ll get crazier. Possibly a little painful, too. Electro-stimulation consists of stimulating your genitals with electricity, or, to paint the picture more clearly, it’s the practice where people attach electrodes to their genitals and hit the on switch.
The truth is that Electro sex is not as crazy as all that. It can be, but there are also a wide range of sex toys that are able to provide electric stimulation, including vibrators, butt plugs and dildos. The people at Metro.co.uk wanted to know why this sexual practice was such a big deal, so they decided to try out one of these products and write their thoughts on the matter. For research, of course.
For starters, they contacted ElectraStim, a company that develops these sort of products, to be provided by a kit. The company also explained why people want to engage in electro sex, providing an experience that can’t be replicated by other sex toys.
By stimulating the nerve endings with electrical pulses, electro sex toys can provide a deeper and more satisfying range of sensations as your muscles involuntarily clench. Some people can even achieve ‘hands free orgasms’ with ElectraStim products as the internal stimulation does the hard work for you. One of the best parts of electro-sex is that you can share it with a partner in such a tactile way.
The kit they received was the Electrastim Flick, a set of devices that can be shared with partners. It contains wires, electrodes, sticky pads, a conductive gel, a dildo that can be used by men and women, and a control unit that, all piled up together, probably looking very intimidating.
There’s no getting away from it – it is a very strange feeling indeed to have one’s internal muscles clenching without any conscious effort. Imagine the slimming pads rolled up and shoved where the sun don’t shine – but instead of your six pack pulsing, it’s your nether regions.
