prostate massagersI'm interested in electrosex. What's the best way for a beginner to try it?


Although most people would never combine the words 'electric' and 'genitals' and reach a happy conclusion, there are pleasure lovers around the globe who have experimented with electrosex and enjoy it as a regular part of their sex lives. Electrosex toys deliver electrical pulses to stimulate the nerve endings of yourself or partner. This stimulation is delivered through specially designed pads or other ingeniously designed sex toys from a main stimulator power unit.

If you've ever used a TENs machine, the sensations are incredibly similar although you should always use equipment specifically for electrosex erotic play. On the lowest levels, the stimulation can barely be felt at all. As you turn it up, the sensations raise to a mild tickle all the way up to intense prickling and stimulation.

To get started with electrosex, you're going to need a main electrosex unit (also known as a stimulator) to which other accessories (electro pads and/or electro toys) can be connected.

Electrosex stimulators aren't the cheapest sex toys. They usually start from around $100-$200. Ideally, you should try to find a demo kit at a shop or an adult event to examine before you buy one. Most electrosex equipment stockists will only accept goods by return if they are faulty or otherwise unopened and unused. So, make sure that you are ready to invest before spending your hard earned cash.

The good news is that once you own an electrosex stimulator there are many different and lower priced sex toys which can be attached (such as dildos, butt plugs, cock rings, prostate massagers, and more) leading to an adventurous and varied sex life for years to come.
