Electrostimulation (E-Stim) Sex Toys - The Shocking Truth

Electrostimulation (E-Stim) Sex Toys - The Shocking Truth

Electrified sex toys. Yes, this is just what it sounds like: Sex toys that shock the skin and genitals on people's bodies. Electrostimulation (or e-stim) sex toys are having somewhat of a moment, and if you’re interested, you should hop on this electric-powered train stat.

Are you curious about how you can get electricity involved in your sex life? Are you totally freaked out, but still kind of interested in learning more? Here's everything you need to know about using e-stim toys.

Why would I want to use electricity during sex?

Electricity might sound like the least sexy thing you could imagine. Who wants to get shocked during sex? You’d be surprised. Adding an e-stim toy to certain erogenous zones can heighten sensitivity and deepen pleasurable feelings. It gets right into those deep nerves and muscles.

E-stim toys use controlled electric shock to deliver acute, slightly sharp sparks to wherever the toy is placed on the body.

You know when we say there are “sparks” between two people who are into each other? Well, this is a literal spark. It’s more intense than a finger, vibrator or tongue—it's its own thing.


How should I actually use an e-stim toy?

Do you enjoy having your testicles licked or sucked? If your partner is into it, have them use an e-stim toy between licks to "shock" your balls. It doesn’t exactly “hurt”; it’s more like an exciting jolt that gets the blood flowing, making their return to licking and sucking even more incredible. If going right for your balls is, well, a bit much, you can always try the inner thighs, lower back or nipples.

You can also use the toy on your partner’s body, but keep in mind that nipples are especially sensitive to e-stim. You can increase the electrical load as you become more familiar with its particular capacity.

Try the toy on different parts of the body, such as your arm, leg, or any less sensitive area to make sure it's set to a comfortable level for you first.

Which e-stim toys should I try?

There are many excellent toys on the market for e-stim, but for those of you trying it for the first time, we recommend sticking with some basics.

Try the Doc Johnson Stinger Wand, available in store. It looks like a cattle prod, and it is one of our favorites. It makes a loud cracking sound when it touches skin, but the shock is actually quite mild. It’s more of a kinky, fun addition to sex, rather than a painful sting. The electrical shocks come from the two ends and can be used in a variety of play from mild to wild! It has a bit more bark than bite, making it an ideal toy for beginners.


We also love the Neon Wand Electrosex Kit, which offers plenty of different wands to start with, but also has some accessories to go with it, like a flogger for some spark behind your impact play, and the power tripper attachment, which lets you turn your whole body into an electric wand; sure to make sparks fly between you and your partner--quite literally!

E-stim toys aren't just limited to external play either. There are some toys on the market that are meant to be inserted or worn and can cause muscle contractions to those specific areas.

If you’re into trying an internal e-stim vibrator, we love the Impulse collection from Calexotics. These toys should only be used inside a vulva, as it doesn’t have a flared base for anal use, but they're sure to bring a new experience into the bedroom!

Now go forth and electrify your sex life. Use caution, and remember to set boundaries. And enjoy!
