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.
