Electro Sex: Power up your Hands Free Orgasm

Erotic electrostimulation, also known more casually as “estim” or “electro sex,” involves the presence of electrical currents as they are applied to the body in an erotic scenario. Estim tends to focus most on providing stimulation to the genitals via these currents through various toys and objects, including wands and devices made specifically for a sexual purpose, though any erogenous zone on the body can be targeted by this practice. Just as we use vibrating toys, massage oils and other elements in our sex lives to stimulate the nerve endings in our sweet spots, estim aims to provide the same effect: to turn you on (pun completely intended).

You might not have heard about this before, or might have only heard it mentioned on television or in a movie. That’s because electro sex is a relatively new practice when compared to other sex acts that do not require the application of electricity to human flesh.

How Did Estim Come to Be?

Prior to the 1950s, electrostimulation was marketed as a medical process designed to help alleviate various health ailments such as chronic pain. It wasn’t until the 1950s that the Relax-A-Cizor, a tool using electrostimulation to induce weight loss, reached the market. For decades people have been looking for easy ways to slim down, and the Relax-A-Cizor promised exactly that. But like all good things, the legacy of the weight loss device came to an end when it was pulled off of shelves in the ‘70s. Why? Because it was hurting people.

Injuries related to the Relax-A-Cizor caused the device to be pulled. Miscarriages, burns and even deaths had been credited to the passive exercise tool, seemingly a testament to the statement that “If it sounds too good to be true, it is.”

Medical TENS (Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulator) and EMS (Electro Muscle Stimulation) units were approved by the FDA in the 1970s and after the failure of the Relax-A-Cizor. These units allowed for enough energy to be produced that it could block nerve pain without providing enough power to be useful in a sexual capacity. It wasn’t until the debut of The Titillator and the Pleasure Box in the 1980s that electrostimulation devices were made with the erotic market in mind.

Since then there have been leaps and bounds in terms of advancement in the area of estim. You can now buy specialized wands and made-for-play devices that are fairly discrete compared to their predecessors, and are designed specifically for your most intimate parts.

How Does Estim Work to Increase Arousal?

The human body is constantly producing electrical impulses that keep us alive by sending messages from our nerve endings to the brain. If you think about this fact, then perhaps erotic electrostimulation might not sound so alarming. It certainly shouldn’t be that surprising that a small amount of safely-administered electricity could incite a positive reaction as the brain processes this stimuli.

5 Surprising Male Erogenous Zones

Different settings and node locations (where you place the electrical nodes on the body) will create different experiences for different individuals. Like everything else that has to do with how we get turned on and have sex, it can take a bit of experimentation to find what you really like. Generally speaking, there are three properties of electrostimulation devices that will help you hone in on the right settings:

  1. Width – How long a single electrical impulse from the device lasts.
  2. Impulse Rate – Also referred to as “frequency,” impulse rate measures the electrical impulses in Hertz (Hz).
  3. Intensity – Controls how strong each electrical impulse is.

To figure out what settings and locations on your body work best at getting you revved up, it is best to cautiously experiment either by yourself or with a partner. Every human body is unique in its own way, a fact that should never be forgotten.

Using your Estim Device for the First Time

A bit of practice will be necessary before you apply the electrical current to your erogenous zones. We recommend starting somewhere like your hand or your forearm to test out the settings on your device as to avoid any unwanted surprises on your most sensitive parts.

Hands Free Orgasm Beginners Guide

As with any new sexy adventure that you’re embarking on with a partner, be sure to talk with them about any limitations and boundaries that either of you have. Once you have done this and figured out the settings on your estim device, it’s time to get down to business. Make sure to have plenty of water-based lube within arm’s reach. As an added safety precaution, you and your partner should make a point to remove any metal rings or bracelets that you are wearing before you begin.

Once you are actually using the device on your sweet spots, take things slowly to get acquainted with the sensations caused by your chosen toy. It could take some fine-tuning of the settings to get things exactly how you want them, but it’s worth the extra bit of patience for the kind of results that you’ll receive.

When you are finished with your device, turn it off. Never put the device down until you have turned off the electrical current.

Practice Electro Sex with Caution

Any action that involves the use of electrical currents has the potential for danger to arise, even if you fancy yourself an expert who knows precisely what they are doing. Inexperience paired with cockiness can get someone really hurt, or even killed, if you do not practice important techniques to ensure the safety of all parties.

Avoid using estim on these parts of the body:

  • The throat
  • Across the chest. Many estim videos will show you people engaging in electro sex with nodes on their chests, but this is not safe. The heart relies on electrical impulses to function, and the presence of estim on the chest can disrupt it.
  • On broken or damaged skin
  • On or directly near any piercings
  • Eyelids
  • Anywhere on the head

If you currently do or have struggled with any of the following medical conditions, estim is not safe for you to get into:

  • Any implanted medical devices, like cardiac pacemakers
  • A history of heart defects
  • EKG monitors and alarms, which can fail to work correctly when exposed to estim
  • Currently pregnant
  • Epilepsy or seizures
  • An undiagnosed issue with chronic pain

Even if you suspect that you might have any of these medical issues, you should consult with your physician to assess your health before you even consider practicing electrostimulation of any kind. Seriously. Don’t even contemplate trying it until you’ve got a clean bill of health from your doctor.

When it comes to the equipment that you use to administer estim, do not:

  • Use a makeshift power source
  • Use higher power or voltage levels than advised by the manufacturer of the device
  • Use devices that have been damaged in any way
  • Use electrostimulation tools that are not designed for erotic play

Having to consider all of the elements of safety might sound a bit like a turn off, but having your heart zapped due to reckless behavior is even worse.

Estim’s Sexual Health Benefits

Orgasm without the pleasure of physical touch to the penis is something that a lot of men are interested in, and could even be the main reason they seek out knowledge on erotic electrostimulation. Estim can be, and often is, applied to the scrotum and penis-with toe-curling results. But that is not the only sexy benefit of men making use of electrical impulses in this way. Men who struggle with erectile dysfunction could stand to gain a lot from this practice, particularly a more fulfilling sex life.

Beginners Guide to Getting Off with Erotic Hypnosis

During the course of scientific discovery it has been found that men who cannot get or sustain erections due to ED or disability, such as paralysis below the waist, could get a new lease on their sex life through the application of electrical stimulation.

Electrostimulation also has its purposes in the area of male fertility. Through the use of an electrostimulation probe inserted into the anus to induce ejaculation, researchers have been able to improve the fertility of men with low sperm quality.

These are some serious perks!

If you don’t have any of the medical concerns listed above, you are a prime candidate for trying out electrostimulation. This deeply satisfying practice brings mind-blowing orgasms and delicious tingling sensations to anybody healthy enough to engage in it while minding the priority of safety at the same time.
