Definition - What does Erotic Electrostimulation (E-Stim) mean?

Erotic electrostimulation is a sexual practice that involves applying mild electrical currents to areas of the body for the purpose of sexual stimulation. These electrical currents are usually applied to a person's genital area - including the penis, scrotum, clitoris, and vagina - although other areas of the body may also be subject to erotic electrostimulation.

This form of sexual stimulation is common, but not limited to BDSM. Applying electrical stimulation to the sensitive areas of the body stimulates the nerve endings in the body. When applied to the genitals, this stimulation can increase the intensity of an orgasm or even induce an orgasm with no other sexual contact.

Erotic electrostimulation is also known as electrosex and electric sex play.

Kinkly explains Erotic Electrostimulation (E-Stim)

Although it is very pleasurable, erotic electrostimulation can also be dangerous. When experimenting with erotic electrostimulation, only use toys and devices designed specifically for that purpose. Using homemade erotic electrostimulation devices can deliver too much of a jolt, which can burn tissues or even cause death. Erotic electrostimulation devices should also not be used above the waist, or by individuals with heart conditions or those who have pacemakers. Doing so could disrupt the heart's rhythm or even cause it to stop.
