I answer reader emails regularly but sometimes I feel that some of the questions and answers should be shared.
Please can you advise me. Have you ever considered the use of house electric current (120v) for masturbation use?
I have this strong urge to try it out since coming across an article recently on the internet, it even explained what items are required, ie. small pieces of sponge moistened with baby oil and attached to the ends of wires so that there is no direct contact with the inside of your vagina, the current stimulates through the small pieces of sponge. The article goes on to suggest that if you separately slip the two wires inside two stockings and insert one wire deep inside your vagina and the other just a little way in the sensations are so wonderful that within a few minutes your own juices continue to keep the pieces of sponge moist and help the current cycle going. I really want to try this out and experience this form of masturbation.
Your advice Anaín would be most welcome.
Thanks for contacting me with your concern. I am definitely not an expert in this realm of kink, so I can’t personally guide you through the how-tos but I can give you more information and some safe reputable resources where you can get more detailed information from.
From your email, I understood that you’re interested in finding a way to incorporate electroplay into masturbation. Erotic electrostimulation (aka electroplay or electrosex) is a human sexual practice involving the application of electrical stimulation to the nerves of the body, with particular emphasis on the genitals, using a power source (such as a TENS, EMS, Violet wand, or made-for-play units) for purposes of sexual stimulation. This is a sexual practice that is not new or rare and there are several safe ways to get pleasure from it. Because this practice does involve the use of electricity there are some known dangers of misuse (such as burns, tissue damage and possibly worse).
My concern from your email, was the thought of you creating a do-it-yourself kit (even from the most detailed instructions) to use during masturbation. Building your own kit to use during masturbation could be a dangerous practice that could possibly cost you a lot more than any of the kits currently available for sale.
Have you heard about products like Mystim’s Tension Lover Electric Stimulation Kit and their Ballzac BallDildo For Electrosex? SheVibe Pleasure Boutique and Stockroom are reputable online stores that you can discretely buy these kinds of products from and also get more information on from their sales representatives.
These products are definitely not inexpensive but when used properly are safer than DIY kits. In my opinion, it is better for you to make an investment in your pleasure by purchasing products that are known as safe and effective (when used properly) instead of building your own.
In your email you didn’t specify where you live but there might be some people in your area that are already skilled at electrosex that you can learn more from.
- FetLife would be a great way to meet these people and other consenting adults that also share similar sexual interests. FetLife is not only a great way to meet others but it is also a great place for you to learn and explore kinks.
- If you live or can easily travel to a major city, you could attend workshops and classes about electroplay. In Chicago, Sunny Megatron, teaches a class called, ZAP! Electric Play – TENS, Wands & More, in San Francisco, Mission Control, is a great place to learn more about all-things-kink, and in Los Angeles, Stockroom, is where you would find classes.
I hope that these resources help you on your way towards incorporating erotic electrostimulation into your current masturbation practice.
