Vanilla sex just isn’t doing it for us any more. We want something more exciting, something with a bit of a thrill. The Fifty Shades series has introduced a lot of people to the world of BDSM, but this isn’t for everyone. For some people, the most appealing thing is ElectroStim.
ElectroStim, which is one of the many ways people shortened erotic electrostimulation, is a growing activity in the bedroom. It helps to enhance things in the bedroom, and can be incredibly pleasurable. It can also seem a little scary, which is why I’ve created this guide with everything you need to know about ElectroStim.
What is it and how does it work?
A lot of people are put off of the idea of trying erotic electrostimulation because it involves the use of an electrical current. However, most of the time it isn’t quite car battery style electrical currents being used.
If you have ever used a TENS machine to help with muscle pain, or a waist toning belt that runs on batteries, you’ll already have experience of ElectroStim. The difference here is just in how it is used.
Erotic electrostimulation toys are made to be used on low settings, so it isn’t harmful to you. Instead it will simply heighten your senses and make everything that little more intense. The mild shocks can also help to increase blood flow to the area, which can further intensify everything.
How do I start?
First of all, you’ll need to talk to your partner about it. It helps a lot if you are both on the same page, and then you can shop together for the best equipment to make it happen.
Thanks to the internet it is now even easier than ever to try ElectroStim. ElectraStim are some of the best sellers when it comes to e-stim, and they have a huge range of toys for you to try. A popular set for beginners is the Flick EM60-E, which is small enough to not be intimidating for beginners. It also has pads so you can get straight to using it, and a warranty just in case.
While it might be tempting to dive in at the deep end, it is better to get a smaller kit to start with. They are pretty versatile, so you can try a number of different things with them, and the low settings of it will mean that you can ease into it.
While it is a hell of a lot safer than it has ever been, there are still a few things you need to remember when trying ElectroStim. You should not use the electrodes above the waist. This is because passing an electrical current through your chest is a bad idea. Keep the action below the waist to keep things safer.
It is also important to check your equipment for damage. If you find any, don’t use it. This is common sense, but often we get so excited about using it that we forget to do the simple things for our safety. Also, using them around water is just asking for trouble.
Most websites selling this equipment will also tell you that there are some people who will be unable to use them. For example, if you have a heart condition, suffer from epilepsy, or even have inflamed skin where the electrodes should be, you should avoid it. It is important not to take any risks, as you don’t want your fun to turn sour.
