Is e-stim painful?

Unread post by Joanne »

Yes and No

It can be painful if you want it to be, or as gentle as the feeling of butterfly wings caressing your skin. It all depends on how you play, you can crank up the power until it hurts like hell and you cramp up, and that is ideal for BDSM sessions.

Or, you can lay back and have it deliver incredibly sensual sensations that can't be recreated any other way. I prefer the latter and regularly orgasm from stimming. My pelvic floor muscles clench and release in time with the e-stim pulses. It actually feels like I am being fucked and this sensation is amplified if I am using an insertable electrode.

Generally, most e-stim control boxes deliver sensations that can be described as light pins and needles or scratching and on lower power settings this can be incredibly erotic. You don't switch on an e-stim control box and receive a shock which seems to be everyone's pre-conceived concept of the activity.

So yes it can hurt if you want it to but most people enjoy it for the pleasurable sensations that it can deliver, oh and the hand's free orgasms are a bonus too. A huge bonus.

I occasionally like the prickly feeling of an electro pinwheel on my buttocks or even perineum but my favourites are more like streams of energy, pulses, or having my penis massaged by someone with rapidly vibrating rollers for fingers. Once I reach a level delivering pleasant feelings I tend to leave it there for a while, relax and concentrate on it as turning it up too high tends to ruin things even if turned back down again.

Pinwheels can be so much fun, especially if using them on others. I know what you mean about settings, once you get into that zone just enjoy it as too much tweaking can definitely bring it all crashing down.

My ElectraStim Flick with their Prestige silicone adjustable rings will do it on some of the wave like patterns but I also get it from the Med-Fit TENS machine with just a pad on the frenulum area and another on the base of the balls. The Modulated TENS is actually described in the manual as Pain relief with a massage effect and it says 80Hz with modulated 70-180μs pulse width. I don’t know if your gear will let you modulate manually by turning the knobs while it’s running but that might let you create more patterns.
