DIY Estim Penis Play Conductive Rubber Cock Loop Insulator

Penis play made easier and better with a 3D printed insulator

I had so much fun making my Bumble Bee Tri-polar estim electrode, and my Curly Wurly Bi-polar Electrode.

So, after seeing a fantastic post by miralicious90 on Smartstim.com where he designed an insulator for his cock ring I thought I would have a go at that too. After many trials and errors, basically because I am still a bit of a techno-muppet where 3D design is concerned I eventually designed this. I introduce to you the 3D Printable Cock Ring Insulator.

DIY Bi-Polar Estim Labia Shield - The Panty Pleaser

For Teasing Your Outer Labia

I had so much fun making my Bumble Bee Tri-polar estim electrode, and my Curly Wurly Bi-polar Electrode. So I was delighted when the very talented e-stimson on smartstim.com got in touch with me to tell me that his latest design was now live.

I just love his electrode designs, they are created to be printed out at home using a 3D printer and some basic materials. His Curly Wurly design is a favourite of mine, and I had so much fun building it myself. I couldn't wait to get started on this one, the Panty Pleaser as I am calling it.

Simple E-Stim Equipment Storage Solutions

Organising your expensive E-stim kit can save you from costly accidents

E-stim kit is expensive, so safe storage is essential.

With E-stim Control Boxes like my beloved 2B costing many hundreds of pounds, you need to consider how you are going to store these expensive pieces of equipment. They need looking after and storing sensibly so that you can get the most of your investment.

But, as you get deeper into the hobby and you get so much equipment, storage starts to become a problem? Lots of e-stim boxes do come in their own storage boxes. But, when the hinges or locks break or when you get more than one control box, and lots of electrodes, cable storage and finding the piece of equipment can become a bit of a challenge.

I want to show you some options for storing kit and also run through my own solution to my problem of too much equipment and a forgetful brain. So, in no particular order here are some storage options for you to think about.

Today I Upgraded My 2B Estim Control Box Firmware

It was so simple to upgrade my 2B E-stim control boxes firmware!

One of the features of the 2B Control Box (read my review of it here) from E-Stim Systems is its upgradeability. Unlike other popular control boxes like the Erostek ET312B Power Unit, it is always in constant development.

There have been four firmware updates this year so far, and the latest adds a number of new features and routines. I am lucky enough to be able to test pre-release firmware candidates, and today I decided to update my 2B to version 2.116B Beta version of the latest firmware, and I am already impressed with it.

DIY Bi-Polar Insertable Electrode - The Curly Wurly

For Intense Vaginal Or Anal Penetrative E-Stim Pleasure

This is e-stimsons's design for a bipolar insertable electrodeAfter making my Bumble Bee Tri-polar estim electrode, I was contacted by the very talented e-stimson on smartstim.com as he tweaked my design for me making it even better - thank you.

He also came up with this fantastic design for a bipolar insertable electrode for anal and vaginal use. I was immediately intruiged, and he gave me a copy of the design files so that I could 3D print and make one for myself.

This article is going to cover the build of this electrode as there is quite a lot going on with this one, it is much more difficult than my Bumble Bee Electrode for a number of reasons.

Firstly, the design is complicated with screw threads and spiralling channels which will need to be printed with supports. This is to compensate for a 3D printers inability to print an overhang over about 60 degrees. These supports are used to support overhangs such as the ones found in the spiralling groove, and they mean much more post print work is needed to remove them and clean up the model.

So a lot of sanding will be needed to smooth everything out once printed.

The next problem is 3D printed objects by their very nature are porous, and that is a bad thing for insertable objects as you have to seal the surface to prevent bacteria and mould growing inside.

My Stereostim Estim Control Box Build Part 2

This reviewer and power tools just don't get on

You can find the first article in this build diary in My Stereostim Estim Control Box Build Part 1

This project has been on the back burner for a while now for a number of reasons. Firstly time has been an issue for me, with so many new products arriving for review it is pretty much flat out on that aspect of my site. You could say that I am a victim of my own success.

The second reason is that I well and truly messed up when trying to drill the front panel for the control box. There was I thinking using a pillar drill would be easy but I was doing something wrong. Maybe the wrong drill speed or whatever. In any case, the mess I made of the panel put a real downer on things, and I turned my attention to my reviewing. Vowing to get back to the build when I had a solution for the panel.

I now have one such solution, regular readers will know that I now have a 3D printer (an Ender 3 to be precise) and that has been a godsend for me with this project.

As well as allowing me the freedom to start self-learning how to design things in 3D CAD using Fusion 360 it has allowed me to 3D print my first printed e-stim electrode. I had so much fun creating the Pussy Clamp Electrode, a 3 pole electrode that can be used for pleasure or torture.

You can read all about my Pussy Clamp Electrode - The Bumble Bee in its own build diary.

After finishing that project, I turned my gaze once again at my stereostim box and realised I could just design and print a front panel for the control box. Easy peasy, well not so easy as it turns out as the panel is wider than my printers bed, so I have had to design the panel in two halves that will be printed separately and then glued together with some reinforcing to give the joints lots of strength.

This is the finished right half of the front panel in Fusion360

Once the front panel had been designed I then exported the design to my slicing software which is Cura (ver 2.1.2) where I configured how it was going to be printed out. Each half was printed with a layer height of 0.2mm on a raft.

I then exported the gcode and uploaded it to the 3D printer and printed them out using some stock red PLA that I want to get rid of (horrible colour).

Cura is the program that slices up the design and creates the code to be sent to the 3D printer

Then it was a simple task of hitting the print button and sitting back for three hours while each was printed out in PLA.

3D Printing one of the panel halves

I used my Ender 3 to print the panel in two halves, this is the right side of the panel mid print.


The results came out very well indeed and I now need to glue the two halves together and fit the components before adding some re-enforcing strips to the glued edge (belt and braces).

With both sides printed I need to glue them together next

I am pleased with the results and how accurately all of the components fit in their designated holes. My next task will be to design a sheet with the control information on it that aligns with the components. This will then be glued in place and a sheet of fablon will then be added to protect it and give it a waterproof coating.

DIY Pussy Clamp Electrode

For BDSM clamping and stimming of the labia

After having so much fun creating my DIY Clitrode I decided that making DIY eletrodes is something that I want to explore and as I now own a 3D printer many more opportunities for doing so have just sprung up. My next electrode is a BDSM pussy lip clamp that can also be used for e-stimming.

It was inspired by the amazing creations of @_DeviantDesigns (Check out their Patreon Page and show them some love), in particular their pussy clamp EM60 mounting box. Check out some of their incredible creations here - There’s no limit to the connected sex toys you can build at home.

So, as I am learning 3D design the hard way (trial and error), this was a huge leap forward for me and I decided to create a basic pussy lip clamp that uses two 6mm bolts. The center piece would have teeth to aid in grabbing the skin and preventing it slipping off due to lube and vag-goo. The outer sections are designed to hold two lengths of 6mm conductive rubber tubing.

This rubber tubing will have a wire threaded through it to remove any resistance issues with the rubber and to ensure there are no hot spots. In use it is deisgned to clamp the labia and then allow for you to attach the rubber tubing to your e-stim control box for some added 'stimulation'. It should be a lot of fun, especially in BDSM scenes.

This was the first prototype design, the little icons at the bottom of the pic show how many steps it took to sculpt in 3D using Fusion 360:

Experiencing Burning Or Stinging When Stimming?

Here are some pointers to smooth things out a bit

Stinging or burning is often caused by either having too much power going through an electrode or having your electrode too small. Other things can also create this sort of problem, and I will cover those later in this article.

Here are some pointers to bear in mind with different styles of electrode.

EStim Resources

This page is the hub of everything estim related on this site

Three years ago the amazing guys over at E-Stim Systems got in touch asking if I would be interested in reviewing some of their e-stim equipment. I had to be honest as I had never even heard of estim or electrosex (sheltered upbringing I guess LOL). Anyway, they sent me my first e-stim control box and electrode set the fantastic Series 1, and I was instantly hooked. I had never had a hands free orgasm in my life, and as I enjoy some light BDSM play, it fitted in with that style of fun as well. I cannot recommend that everyone should give it a go, what have you got to lose?

Anyway, this page is the hub of everything e-stim related, and it provides links to the three main areas of my electrosex activities. Reviews, advice articles and DIY self-builds. There are also some handy quick links on the left of this page - the links with the stripey background, you can't miss them >>>

My Stereostim Estim Control Box Build Part 1

And so my Stereostim build begins

After waiting what seems like forever I have just about everything that I need to start my Stereostim E-stim Control Box build.

There are a few things I still need such as a box or enclosure for it, but I can't finalise the size that I need until after I have to build a test version of it on the bench to check it works and to work out my space envelope for the box.

Here is a pic of most of the components, there are a few others out of shot, but you can see that this has dozens of components to assemble.

Most of the components for the Sterostim build

I have a few reservations about my front panel design, and the biggest is whether or not all of the parts will fit that tightly together on the inside of the front panel.

I, therefore, dug out an old Tupperware box, printed out a full-sized copy of the front panel and I glued it to the side of the Tupperware box. This copy allowed me to drill out all the holes for the components and to be able to build the desktop version of the system actually inside the box.

This will allow me to sort out wiring runs and I will be able to securely mount all of the small components like LEDs and switched that would just get trashed if I built it flat on my desk. This seems like a logical approach, and while it won't look pretty, it will satisfy my curiosity as to whether everything will fit together on my chosen size of front panel 9"/22.8cm by 3.9"/9.9cm.

I decided to tackle the two most intricate and worrying parts of the design, and those are the Electrode Routing Switch (4 poles 12 way) and the Tri-Phase electrode joining switch (4 poles 5 way).

The two most complicated switches are finished

Both of these switches have been built with male and female sockets on short lengths of wire coming from them. This way as everything is modular, if I get a fault, I can just disconnect the problem module and bypass it. I will then only lose that modules functionality, but I will still be able to use the box.

My first problem was my choice of wire. I had gone for 1mm2 wire which is way too thick. I then remembered that my partner had some spare 12-way trailer cable in the garage and so I pinched a bit and stripped that down to use the thinner wire. This has is proved to be much better.
