What is an E-stim?
The picture above shows, not only, an E-stim device but my E-stim device, which happens to be called a MyStim. An E-stim device is a fun electrical toy that is based on the medical devices, commonly known as T.E.N.S. units. They can be used at lower intensity levels for erotic stimulation. But you can crank up the dials and deliver quite a painful electro spanking or other play torture with them, if you so desire.
Play safely with electricity
As with all toys, you have to learn to play safely with an E-stim device. To put it in it’s simplest terms you have to avoid putting an electrical current on, near or through the head, neck, spine, heart or any other major abdominal organ. To make life simple, just make sure that the electrical contacts or other devices are only used from the waist down, on yourself or your partner. Now go and make yourself a really strong cup of coffee (because this video is boring enough to send you to sleep) and watch the following video on the safe use of T.E.N.S. units. It could mean the difference between having a very fun playtime and having to call an ambulance.
My E-stim device came as a basic starter kit, in the nifty little carry case pictured above. In the box was the E-stim unit 4 electrical, self adhesive, reusable, contact pads, the cables to connect the pads to the device, a 9 volt battery and an instruction book. As can be seen below.
The benefits of electro play
As a spanko, living in Belgium, a country without much of an adult spanking culture, I often find that I have to compromise how I play when interacting with people of a more BDSMy culture. This sometimes introduces me to things that I do not like.
I don’t like this kind of thing
Such as the electric toys shown above, which just feel like cattle prods to me and I don’t go Moo. But E-stims I found to be a more fun device. Some people set the controls on low and use them for erotic stimulation. I prefer it when the knobs and dials are cranked up a bit and things get tastily painful.
As you can see from the photo above You can use the controls to change the type of pulse, the length of pulse and the frequency of the pulses. The big round dials at the top turn the current on and off and give you the volume of stimulation or pain that you require.
I have had this devise and others like it wired up to my buttocks to give an electrical spanking, which I enjoy very much. These can also be wired up to other body parts for a more intimate form of fun torture play. I think that one of the biggest advantages of E-stim play is that it leaves no marks (except sometimes a small red patch where the contact pad was on the skin but this disappears within minutes) and your body recovers from playing almost immediately. So you can play to a high intensity with one of these devises and then don some skimpy swimwear and no one else at the pool will know that you have been playing.

The school report
E-stim devices receive a resounding A grade. They are well worth the effort and give very pleasing results.
