According to wikipedia
Erotic electrostimulation (abbreviated e-stim and also known as electrosex) is a human sexual practice involving the application of electrical stimulation to the nerves of the body, with particular emphasis on the genitals, using a power source (such as a TENS, EMS, Violet wand, or made-for-play units) for purposes of sexual stimulation. Electrostimulation has been associated with BDSM activities, and erotic electrostimulation is an evolution of that practice. Erotic electrostimulation is the use of electrostimulation in an erotic or sexual manner versus the more sadistic or painful applications in BDSM.
I prefer to call it fun!
As the human body functions on electricity, it seems to me that using that electricity to enhance sexual pleasure is obvious. Now I’m not advocating you wire yourself to the mains supply, that might hurt, nor try licking 9v batteries (that hurts as well), but I do enjoy the pleasure that a good e-stim box can give.
When is e-stim not e-stim?
When I talk to people many people get confused between e-stim and violet wands. Well they both use electricity and they both zap don’t they? No!!! Violet wands are much higher voltage (in the 1000′s of volts) and were originally created as a quack medicine tool. They create ozone, can cause skin irritation and even burns when used incorrectly.
