Electrostim Sex Toys: A Shocking Addition to BDSM Play

Posted by Andrew Schroeder on

If you have just begun exploring BDSM, you probably have not had a chance to incorporate electric stimulation in your routine yet. In fact, you are most likely utterly oblivious to the phenomenon. The concept of BDSM is wide enough to include numerous kinks and a multitude of their variants.

Fortunately, it is never too late to learn (and try) something new. If the idea of adding electrostim sex toys to your collection appeals to you, the following lines will cast some light on the subject. We will go over a variety of different products, explaining their purpose. By the time you finish reading this text, all the different uses for electricity may shock you (pun intended). We’re sure your sex will never feel the same again!

What Are Electrostim Toys?

Since your search brought you here, we are going to assume that you are familiar with the basics of BDSM. It is an umbrella term that stands for bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, and sadism and masochism. The three primary subtypes of BDSM involve various takes on the same concept — assuming complementary, yet unequal roles.

Couples who wish to engage in BDSM and those in BDSM relationships generally determine their boundaries and safe words beforehand. Additionally, they may also decide on the division of roles. Alternately, they agree to change roles according to their mood (switches).

Whichever the case, BDSM, in its core, is about taking/relinquishing control and inflicting/receiving pain. Some people accomplish that without any gear, whereas others choose to use sex toys in their scenes. That brings us to electric stimulation. Given the nature of the BDSM lifestyle, it does not come as much of a shock that some members of the community use electrostim toys.

The purpose of electrostim toys is to enhance the feeling of pain, ultimately leading to sexual pleasure. The dominant person applies them to the submissive person’s body, focusing on their erogenous zones. Electrostim toys are then controlled by the dominant person, who adjusts the intensity of each electric shock. Naturally, electric stimulation is only involved if each participant consents to it, as is everything within the BDSM spectrum.

Without any further ado, let us introduce all the different products that fall into the category of electrostim toys.

Electric Nipple Clamps

Since you are into BDSM, you have probably heard of nipple clamps, whether you have used them or not. Aside from whips, ropes, and handcuffs (as well as other methods of restraint), they are the most common toys in BDSM play. As the name itself suggests, nipple clamps are applied to the nipples of a masochistic person, regardless of their gender. Their purpose is to cause a painful sensation in one of the most sensitive areas of the human body. Since the BDSM community thrives along with the sex industry, there are various types of nipple clamps available on the market. The ones that interest us the most are the ones that involve electric stimulation.

Electric nipple clamps, also known as shock nipple clamps, offer an entirely new and upgraded experience. As you may know, nipple clamps restrict the blood flow in a person’s nipples, making them even more sensitive than they already are. Adding electric stimulation as a special feature can take the mixture of pain and pleasure to a whole new level.

The most common materials used for electric nipple clamps are metal and stainless steel. They can also be plastic, with electric stripes as the conductive material. Aside from clamps, the set you get includes a power box with different settings and modes used to adjust the intensity of each shock. In addition to setting this manually, you can also turn on the automatic mode. Finally, there are even electric nipple clamps that have a vibrating feature.

Electric Cock Cages

Cock cages, chastity cages, or male chastity belts — whatever you want to call them — restrain the submissive person in a completely different way than handcuffs and ropes do. They enclose the penis, making an erection uncomfortable or even impossible. Their purpose is to prevent any stimulation for hours, even days at a time. Not only does a cock cage disable a man from having sexual intercourse or receiving oral sex, but it also makes it impossible for him to masturbate. The only thing a man can do to remove a cock cage is to obey his keyholder (the dominant person) and have them remove it for him.

The lack of power and control over his own penis is precisely what makes such a man enjoy a BDSM scene involving this particular sex toy. Some even decide to take the play to the next level and have their penis locked in an electric cock cage.

An electric cock cage, also known as a shock cock cage, does not differ much from any regular one in terms of the design. In addition to all the standard parts, it includes conductive silicone surfaces that are connected to the power box featuring different settings. Once the dominant connects the two, they control the intensity of electric stimulation. The cage wearer subsequently feels pulsating or tingling sensation in his penis.

Electric Anal Toys

There are several types of anal toys. The most common ones are anal beads, butt plugs, and prostate massagers. Anal beads consist of a series of several beads. They may differ in size, color, and material. Butt plugs are flare-based dildos designed for anal insertion. They are generally shorter than regular dildos, but their size can also vary. Lastly, prostate massagers are finger-like devices with a curved head whose purpose is to massage a man’s prostate for his sexual pleasure. Given the sensitivity of the prostate, you should be extra careful if you decide to try out this particular toy.

Now that you are familiar with different types of anal toys, we should plug them into a socket. Whichever type you choose, you can rest assured that the regular toy has its electric counterpart. Electric anal toys generally look the same as the non-electric ones, except for the cord that connects the toy with the power box. Depending on the intensity of the shock, electric stimulation of the anal region can result in pleasure or pain. Since we are discussing it in the context of BDSM, the combination of the two sensations is the desired result.

When it comes to electric prostate massagers, you can find the ones that stimulate the prostate and the perineum alike. However, you should not go overboard with the level of shock. Instead, you should opt for mild tingling and vibrating sensations.

Electric Masturbators

Masturbators are probably the most numerous sex toys on the market. They come in a variety of shapes, sizes, and colors for both genders. However, not all of them are equally familiar to someone who is outside of the BDSM community. While some female masturbators are quite openly discussed and prominently featured in movies and literature, male masturbators seem to have a stigma attached to them. Fortunately, not only are we going to break that stigma, but we are also going to introduce electric masturbators for both men and women.

Female masturbators range from dildos to vibrators (including finger sleeve vibrators). Vibrators are the most prominent example of female electric masturbators. There are numerous different models: with a cord, cordless, the ones that stimulate both the clitoris and the G spot, and so on.

When it comes to male masturbators, the market offers a wide range of options as well. Masturbators for men are commonly known as masturbation sleeves or strokers. Their outside is usually ridged so that a man can get a good grip, while their inside is textured to simulate vaginal, oral, or anal sex. Electric male masturbators are quite similar to their regular counterparts, except that they have a vibrating feature. Finally, there are vibrating penis plugs, whose purpose is to enhance arousal and intensify a man’s orgasm.

Electric Cock Rings

While her idea of the perfect night usually includes an engagement ring, his might involve a cock ring. Although less romantic, his fantasy is so exciting that she may want to share it with him. Instead of seeing him kneel in front of her, placing a ring on her finger, she can find herself kneeling in front of him, putting one on his penis.

Do not let the kneeling part confuse you. The described scenario features a dominant woman and a submissive man.

A cock ring is most commonly placed around the base of the dick, encircling either just the penis or both the testicles as well. A cock ring restricts the blood flow from an erect penis, thus enhancing an erection or maintaining it.

While people regularly use cock rings as a method of treating erectile dysfunction, electric cock rings have an entirely different purpose. They intensify an erection and then bring it to a painful point in a BDSM scene involving a submissive man.

An electric cock ring set consists of a cock ring and a power box connected to it. In order to control the intensity of the electric stimulation of the penis, the dominant/sadistic person sets the level of an electric shock on the power box.

Other Electric Sex Toys

Although we have listed all of the most common electric sex toys, the market is vast, and there is more to explore. Electric stimulation has apparently gained popularity within the BDSM community. There are numerous people who enjoy shocking their partner (or getting shocked themselves) during sex. In the following lines, we will add a few products to our list and expand your options (and your horizons) even further.

Vibrating Panties

Since teasing is one of the crucial components of a BDSM scene, vibrating panties may thrill both you and your partner. They are discreet, and thus the perfect option for a foreplay session in public. Nobody besides the two of you will have the slightest idea of what is going on. You can connect your vibrating panties either to a phone app or remote control. Every time the dominant person wants to remind their sub of what awaits them when they get home, they can turn both them and their panties on with a press of a button.

Male Stamina Trainers

Edging is another crucial aspect of BDSM. Since it is a whole separate topic, we are only going to tickle your fancy by introducing a male stamina trainer. It resembles a male masturbator, but its purpose is somewhat different. The dominant person can use it on their male sub to get them as close to an orgasm as possible without allowing them to climax. The purpose of stamina training is to learn to postpone an orgasm and last longer in the bedroom.

Electric Whip

An electric whip is what you get when you combine one of the most basic sex toys and electric stimulation. It features a neon wand that gets attached to the conductive part of the whip, allowing it to become electrified. In addition to the familiar sensation of pain, this sex toy also delivers a feeling of shock once it comes in contact with your or your partner’s body.

What Does Getting Shocked Feel Like?

Since you are already more than familiar with the concept of BDSM, you are aware of the fact that it usually involves pain. Even though pain is mainly present in the sadism and masochism parts of it, it is wrong to assume that the other four exclude it. Regardless of the subtype, BDSM is about power exchange in sex, achieved through the division of complementary roles. Given that BDSM activities are generally described as play, it comes as no surprise that there are toys involved. Although they are not obligatory, they can be a fantastic addition to your sexual routine.

At some point, a combination of electricity and sex found its way into the BDSM industry, which brings us back to pain. Numerous members of the BDSM community find pleasure in experiencing it. Its intensity may vary from one person to the next, but its power in BDSM play is undeniable. Electric stimulation that you can achieve through the use of the toys we have discussed can deliver the sensation of pain submissive and masochistic people crave for. Additionally, there is the feeling of suspense in not knowing when and how intensely their dom will shock them, which only adds to the excitement. Finally, we have to point out that many people are able to reach orgasm from being shocked.

Nevertheless, we must not disregard the importance of safety and hygiene in the process.

Safety

Since you have come this far in your research, you must already know that safety is paramount! You and your partner need to discuss your expectations, needs, and boundaries prior to a scene. In spite of the excitement that comes with BDSM, what should be a fun experience can quickly turn into a nightmare if a person’s physical, mental, or emotional well-being gets harmed.

The introduction of electric stimulation to the whole process implies an even higher level of precaution when it comes to choosing a toy and using it. You should be careful not to buy a cheap product of suspicious quality. Moreover, keep in mind to read the instructions carefully. We all know better than to play with electricity. However, when it comes to sex, our judgment can get clouded, so a quick reminder can help us stay on the right track.

Finally, do not forget your safe word. BDSM etiquette clearly states that the use of a safe word immediately terminates a scene.

Hygiene

Hygiene is another reason you should choose your sex toys carefully. Do not use products made of porous materials. They are impossible to fully clean and can, therefore, become a source of infection. Instead, opt for products made of impermeable materials such as silicone or metal.

However, choosing the right product does not mean your task is complete. You need to know how to take care of it and do it regularly. Clean and dry your sex toys thoroughly after each use before storing them. Your work is not complete when you reach an orgasm.

Parting Words

Thanks to electricity, BDSM has thrived beyond anyone’s imagination! Electric stimulation opens the doors to an entirely new experience. If you are curious enough (and responsible enough), you may want to visit your local sex shop and take a look at the products labeled “shock.”
