I really enjoyed reviewing the ABox Mk2 for E-Stim Systems. It is a totally redesigned upgrade of their original Audio Stim box the ABox which came to the marketplace in 2006.
It is great to see that E-Stim Systems are continually improving their range of control boxes. Here is a link to my review of the ABox Mk2.
The ABox Mk2 is a single channel control box with two modes of operation, and these are line in and its internal microphone.
Almost immediately after publishing my review of the ABox Mk2, I started to receive messages and enquiries about how it compares to the E-Stim Systems 2B.
So that brings me to this article. I have spent the day playing with both boxes side by side, comparing both, it was tough to compare them.
So picture the scene, I have my Stunt Cock tied up, his cock has several of my e-stim electrodes strapped in place. I am teasing him with the controls on my 2B, and he tenses up saying "OMG it feels like someone is sucking on the end of my cock".
That got me thinking while working towards his happy sticky ending. Whilst that must have felt good (and I could tell it did due to his reactions), how good would a real blowjob feel when coupled with some e-stim play?
Would it be the best of both worlds or end up with me with a pair of zapped lips and a limp tongue Jar Jar Binks style?
Recently, as a result of a conversation with a Dutch Fetlifer, I started to wonder how many penis owners who stim use additional stimulation during their sessions.
I often incorporate vibrator play in my sessions and naturally assumed that lots of penis owners do too. But having looked around popular places for discussing e-stim like SmartStim and SocialStim, it appears I may be mistaken in that assumption.
That got me thinking as to why that would be?
It also got me curious as to just how good combining e-stim play with vibrations would feel on a hard (or indeed soft) cock.
Here is something for the prostate owners out there who love their e-stim play and want to target their prostate more effectively.
Now I know that most prostate owners use butt plug style electrodes to target their prostates, and that makes total sense.
This (in theory) will allow you to send the electrical pulses from your e-stim control box through your prostate and along your Dorsal nerves to stimulate both the glans of a penis and the prostate itself - perfect.
So, here's the premise, you love e-stim. Stimming is one of your favourite ways of getting off, the hands-free orgasms blow you away, and you want to share your excitement about this masturbatory practice with your partner.
But how do you broach the subject without scaring them off? That is the million-dollar question and one that I will be discussing in this article.
For those not aware, urethral sounding is the practice of inserting objects often called sounds, stoppers or plugs into the urethra (or pee hole).
This area has lots of nerve endings, and while it may raise the hairs on the backs of some people's necks, others love sounding their urethra. Indeed kits containing different sized sounds can be found online to enable you to experiment with this form of sexual activity.
"Electro-sounding does have risks associated with it but they can be pretty easily mitigated against. Sounding feels amazing and adding e-stim to it is a logical progression."Joanne
Like all activities, electro-sounding does have risks associated with it, and it is essential to understand them and how to mitigate against them. So let me tell you all about e-stim sounding.
The 2B from E-Stim Systems is an amazing, e-Stim control box, but its vast array of functions can be a little confusing for beginners. Read my review of the E-Stim Systems 2B Control Box to see my initial thoughts on it.
Having now spent almost three years getting to know it and enjoying its basic as well as the advanced functions, I thought it was time to write a guide for newbies to the 2B.
I'm going to focus on function or performance tips rather than just going over what is already in the excellent instructions that you get with the machine.
I don't want to be repeating what is already available, so I am going to focus on settings and ways to play with it that will maximise your chances of getting comfortable with this fantastic control box. Hopefully leading to the holy grail of e-stimming, the hands-free orgasm (HFO).
A post on smartstim about vacuum sounding got my interest, and I decided after reading some of the comments that I should document building such an electrode to help others make one.
So, credit to miralicious90 on smartstim.com for his fantastic idea and 3D design. I love his simple design, but I have decided to push it a little.
In this article, I am going to take you step by step through the process of making your own DIY penis vacuum enlarger coupled with an e-stim sounding electrode. So you can make your cock bigger and harder than ever before while sounding and using e-stim at the same time.
If that sounds like fun, then read on. See just how easy it is to create something like this yourself.
"Bloody hell, this is one serious piece of kit. The feeling of your cock swelling and the sound sliding into you is extremely intense and once the e-stim control box is switched on it blows your socks off. It is an amazing experience, and one hell of a ride."Joanne's Stunt Cock
This is quite a long article and so here are some quick links if you want to skip to a particular section.
Catchy title, eh? What the heck is the E-stim Inverse Proportionality Pain Rule? Well, it's a term that I just came up with to cover an often overlooked effect when playing with electrosex equipment.
It is quite simple. The sensations that you feel are inversely proportional to the surface area of the electrodes in contact with your body. So the smaller the contact surface, the more intense the stimulation. Or in other words, you will get a painful zap if you remove an electrode while the power is switched on.
Think of it like this; proportional pain is what we are all used to. Imagine dipping your toe into bathwater that is far too hot. It hurts, and so you immediately lift your toe out of the water to remove the source of the pain. That is proportional pain, if you continued dipping your other toes and then your foot into the water, the pain would increase.
Doing so may be something that intruiges you but also worries you a little. You may be curious about just how safe this activity is and how you can introduce electricity into your sex play safely. So, as we are investing in video recording equipment and I'm basically still pretty camera shy. I talked my Stunt Cock into doing our first e-stim educational video (I fluttered my eyes a lot and promised him so seriously kinky sex afterwards). I think he did a pretty good job of it.
So here he is to give you ten basic safety rules and tips to keep you safe when you stim.
We intend to do several educational videos about this fantastic activity, and this is the first one.
So, check out Stunt Cock's video, please be kind and leave him a helpful comment on Youtube.
I started off using the humble Series 1 control box from E-stim Systems, and while it is no longer in production, I still use it occasionally for its raw power and simple controls.
Over the years, I have reviewed and also enjoyed so many e-stim control boxes. I have two favourites though, the 2B Control Box from E-Stim Systems is by far my favourite control box, but the Series 1 Remote comes in a close second. The Remote gives you so many different play styles, and it is fun to be able to have someone else control things from afar. It lends itself to BDSM play well but don't let that put you off, it is a TV star in its own right and can also deliver enormous pleasure as well as painful zaps when required.
I also enjoy playing with the Axis Control Box from Electrastim; it has some fun little features such as a proximity sensor and a very sensitive movement sensor. I tend to use it for predicament bondage play, and the handy travel case makes it an ideal travel companion.
I have written a 22 page guide to the basics of electrostimulation or e-stim for short.
It contains lots of information on e-stim safety, basic theory, electrode options and covers several electrode position guides to help you on your way. Oh, and there is even a handy resource guide at the end.
That is a question that often turns up, and I will do my best to answer it in this article. Erotic electrostimulation refers to the use of specially designed equipment to apply electrical stimulation to the genitals for sexual pleasure. It is often referred to as e-stim.
Often though there is confusion between some of the terms involved like TENS, EMS and E-stim.
All are systems that pass an electrical current through tissue, but they interact with nerves and muscles in differing ways. These differences in performance and abilities are due to their differing waveforms and power levels.
But just as a Ford Fiesta, a Mercedes and a Ferarri are all cars, they all go about doing what they do in different ways while still coming from a universal concept.
Electrode positioning can make a massive difference to the perceived sensations, but let's cover the three different types of control boxes.
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.
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.
First of all this article is a little bit naughtier than my usual ones and it depicts explicit visual demonstrations of electrode positioning on men so before you scroll down please make sure it is safe and wise to do so where you are.
I have been using electricity to get myself off now for a number of years. As a vagina owner, I have spent a lot of time reading and educating myself about its effect on penis owners, as I like a bit of cock and enjoy playing with them so much LOL.
I am qualified to whittle on about how to get good orgasms for vagina owners, but I wanted to understand why some guys find it so hard to achieve an orgasm through e-stim. It doesn't seem fair that I can get off pretty much every time I e-stim myself when lots of penis owners can't.
I started to wonder if it could be down to a lack of knowledge about how e-stim interacts with the male nervous system as it is laid out differently to my own as we differ biologically. I set about collating as much information about penis play as I could to hopefully condense lots of good advice into this guide.
I want all penis owners to be able to achieve an e-stim hands-free orgasm, and hopefully, some of the information that I am about to impart may indeed help you to achieve one if you don't already enjoy them.
Anyone new to the wonderful world of E-stim fun will know how tricky it can be to find the right electrode placements and settings to deliver reliable hands-free orgasms.
Getting a new control box or electrodes can often mean learning all over again how to get the most out of it. I always recommend to people to keep an e-stim session diary so that they can readily recreate what works for them while avoiding things that have been tried in the past. It's sort of hands free orgasm best practice.
In an effort to help people understand what I do and how I keep my stimming diary I have formally written up a template that I use, and I am making it freely available here to anyone who wants to use it.
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.
