Two words: Electric. Sex.

Electricity and sex ... isn't that dangerous?

Do they even go together?

Actually, they do. For many people, electrostimulation is just another way to experiment in the bedroom.


Electrical impulses are constantly running through our body. The body uses those electrical impulses all the time to exchange information between nerve endings and the brain. And those same electrical impulses help us feel touch and, more importantly, pleasure.

And where are the most nerve endings that love pleasure? Down THERE! That's why you're so sensitive in that area. With the right stimulator, you can tingle each of these nerves for ultimate pleasure. When done correctly, electrostimulation is very erotic.

E-stim (short for electrostimulation) has become more and more popular the past couple of years. Why? Because it doesn't hurt  it feels good. Really!

Let's not forget that the medical field has used electrostimulation for many years to treat chronic pain or rebuild muscle strength. It doesn't hurt, and it can help you! Along the way, someone decided to experiment with stimulating other body parts.

Who's Into Erotic Electrostimulation?

Electro-sex isn't just for people into BDSM. It's for anyone who enjoys pleasure and is willing to try something new and different. Whether alone or with a partner, you can try electro-sex. Although, we admit that it's more fun with a partner!

What Does It Feel Like?

You can feel anything from a gentle tickle to a strong stimulation.

Electro Sex For Beginners

The easiest way to try electro-sex is with an electro-sex sex toy. You can use these toys for solo or couple play. No matter what situation you like, there's a whole world of things you can do and try that can get you to reach a fast, intense orgasm or steadily maintain a slowly spreading tingling sensation that will keep you happy for hours.

To get started, you'll need:

  • An e-stim toy that transfers electrical impulses to your skin
  • A good understanding of what is safe and what is not

With this kind of toy, it's best to try it out first and experiment on your hand instead of your genitals. Make sure to communicate and set ground rules before you begin. Also, make sure that you or your partner are not wearing rings or metal bracelets.

Turn the toy on, slowly going through all of the modes. When you're done experimenting, it's time to turn the e-stim toy off. Remember, always turn off the electrical current before you let go of the toy.

When you're ready to use the toy on your genitals, make sure to use a generous amount of water-based lubricant.

Some e-stim toys to try are the Mystim e-stim Vibrator and the JimmyJane Hello Touch XBoth use vibration and electrical stimulation for unbelievable pleasure.

The Mystim has a conductive surface that runs the entire length of the shaft with 5 electrical stimulation programs and 10 speeds. Combine that with 2 powerful and silent motors at the tip and shaft that have 8 vibration patterns and speeds — WOW!

The Hello Touch X puts vibration or electrostimuation right at your finger tips for exciting and electric play. Double WOW!
