Ladies and gents, allow me to tell you about Electrosex stimulation, or electrosex, an exciting kink that is making shockwaves in the industry and straight into the bedroom. Don’t worry, it does not involve sticking anything into a power socket – but instead, it relies on technology that has been developed since the ’70s to deliver a unique, hands-free, and highly pleasurable rich orgasm for people like me and you.

So, what exactly is Electrosex we hear you ask? Well, you’ve come to the right place.

In this guide to electrosex stimulation, we’ll give you all the tips and tricks you need to know if you’re feeling tempted to bring some spark into the bedroom.

What is electrosex stimulation?

Electrostimulation (E-stim), in short, is using low-voltage electrical currents in a controlled manner to stimulate the erogenous zones. The sensations are created through electrical currents coming into contact with the nerve endings via wired electrodes (picture the little pads you’ve seen in films and TV, or in a hospital).


This technology isn’t just for sex though. E-stim is used for several purposes, including pain relief and treatment. We’ll be focusing on the fun part in this article though!

What does electrosex stimulation feel like?

Yes, electrosex stimulation is a kink on its own, but It’s important that you separate electro-sex from BDSM and other forms of sexual pleasure. These types of play incorporate some degree of pain that plays a role in the pleasure that is experienced. There is of course room to explore, but E-stim can be entirely pain-free – if you want it to be.

On the lower end of the spectrum, you can expect sensations such as tingling or tickling. You’ll feel it in your muscles, and many of the sensations will be internal. As you increase the voltage, so will the sensations. Higher levels could lead to a slight sting, which some people may enjoy. Depending on the toy used, you can also experience a buzzing or humming sensation too.

It’s important to ease yourself in and to find a level of sensation that feels comfortable and of course, pleasurable.

The sensations won’t end once you’ve finished with your e-stim device. Given that you’re stimulating your nerve endings directly, you will be left with heightened sensitivity for a shorter period – which can have sex with your partner more intensely intimate and pleasurable.

What electrosex Stimulation should I try?

There are several electro sex products available for you to try, depending on your experience, and the sensation that you’re looking for.

Electro Sex Stimulation Packs

Your typical electric sex stimulation device kit will consist of a stimulator with connecting wires, a few electrode pads, a charger, and a protective bag. The electrodes are connected to the remote via wires and are controlled using a few buttons; like the ElectraStim Flick Electro Stimulation Packs.

Wearable Electro Sex Toys

There are then the wearable electro sex toys, like Sleeves and Pouches. Men will wear these on their penis or scrotum like the Rimba Electro Stimulation Leather Cock Sleeve or the Rimba Electro Stimulation Ballstretcher Parachute. The wearable E-stim comes with power leads that must be connected to the power box for that extra electro stimulation. These will require a remote to control the voltage applied during play. These items can leave your genitals with heightened sensitivity after use and can allow you to experience greater sensation during sex.

Electro Sex Toys

And lastly, we have electro sex toys, these are your standard dildos, your anal plugs, and vibrators with added voltage to provide electro stimulation to your sweet intimate spots. Most of these electrosex toys are advanced, they are wireless and versatile, like the ElectraStim Silicone Fusion Komodo Dildo, which can act as a standard dildo or a finely tuned electro toy.

Not all electro sex toys are wireless, some still need to be connected with cables to the power box in order to get the electro stimulation, like the ElectraStim Electro Egg Probe. These wired devices require a remote that will allow you to control the voltage applied during play.

Is Electro Sex Safe?

We hope that from a young age, you were cautioned about electricity. That being said, if you use e-stim products as per the instructions, they can be both safe and pleasurable. You won’t experience the levels of pain that you would if you were being electrocuted, so you don’t have to worry about your hair being ruined.

Given that you’re dealing with low-frequency currents, the feelings and sensations will be mainly internal (as described above).

What precautions should I take when using sex toys?

Like with all other aspects of sex, safety comes first and before anyone else in the room does. If you are playing by yourself, take things easy and be sure you fully understand the products and toys you plan to use. When playing with a partner, be sure that needs and limits are understood, and respected.

What is electrosex

E-stim toys should not be used if you have heart problems or some form of a pacemaker. Pregnant women should not use these devices. These devices and toys should not be used above the waist, especially around the nipples or chest area. We also recommend removing all jewelry before use.

Do not use a wired toy that has frayed wires, or that has been damaged in any way. Keep all toys and devices away from water.

You should only use a specific e-stim device or toy that has been designed for this purpose. Do not try to make your own or adapt another device for this purpose. This can be extremely dangerous and/or fatal.

The next thing to consider is lube, and what gel to use with an electro sex toy. For any external attachments, such as pads, you will need a special electro-conductive gel-like the Electrastim Electro Stimulation Conductive Gel which has been designed to work with electrodes. Should you be using any internal attachments, then a water-based lubricant is recommended. Do not use any silicone-based lube! Click here to view and shop our full lubricants and oil category.
