Erotic electrostimulation, in short E-Stim or electrosex, is neither dangerous nor painful when used correctly and with appropriate precautions. On the contrary, it creates highly pleasant feelings, the intensity of which everyone can influence from the very beginning.
However, it is different from anything you may have experienced so far in terms of sexual stimulation and therefore needs a little getting used to.
Many people only find the right combination of stimulation patterns, devices, electrodes and their optimal placement on the body after prolonged experimentation.
To make this long journey, which I myself have been with for more than 10 years, considerably shortened, I have written the following lines.
First I give practical tips and suggestions for beginners, advanced and professionals. For all who want to know even more there is a small E-Stim compendium available for download. There you will find further helpful details and detailed background information, which I have compiled from various sources, supplemented by my own experiences and prepared in an easily understandable form.
1 For beginners
1.1 What can I expect? How does it feel?
Erotic electrostimulation can create wonderful sensations in the sensitive parts of the body. These range from gentle stroking and tapping to tingling, massaging, kneading, rubbing, rhythmic, involuntary contractions in the pelvic area and ecstatic twitches of the whole body. All this with unlimited endurance and overwhelming intensity, which can be varied from tender to hard. Usually an indescribably intense orgasm is following, which can even be repeated several times if necessary.
The only sensation that it cannot produce is a feeling of slippery sliding.
Now you will surely ask: What do I need, for a quick and satisfactory entry into erotic electrostimulation?
Just 3 things:
A sound source, a good power box and matching electrodes.
I’m going to start from”behind”, i.e. with the:
The electrical signals must be conducted into the body in order to flow through parts of it in a meaningful way and thus produce the desired stimuli. For this you need electrodes, preferably made of gold or stainless steel, which are the right size and are placed in exactly the right positions. If you use electrodes from the proStim range, you don’t need to worry about these points anymore. They are made of stainless steel, have exactly the right size and sit in the right places.
In order to improve the contact of the electrode surfaces with the body, it is useful in most cases to use a contact gel. This reduces the electrical resistance between the skin surface and the electrode surface and thus prevents possible unpleasant side effects. Read more in the compendium.
In order to be able to enjoy the highest E-Stim pleasures right from the start, I recommend that men buy our 3- or better 4-pole GlansClaw, possibly used in combination with an inexpensive loop electrode made of conductive silicone.
Women can also start well with cheap adhesive electrodes, as long as they are shaved in the genital area.
More information can be found in the application recommendations for the respective product.

The “power box” is the device that supplies the electrical signals to the electrodes. On the market there are a number of types in the price range between 100,- and approx. 800,- €. Most of them originate from the medical sector. (so-called TENS or EMS devices).
Unfortunately these are by far not optimal for erotic stimulation. No wonder, since they were originally designed for pain relief or muscle building. This is why they only produce a limited number of stimulation patterns, which is why they quickly become boring and generally do not feel really good.
Derived from this are digital devices that generate a larger number of stimulation patterns and can sometimes automatically switch between these patterns. This prevents boredom, but is also not the final conclusion.
Finally, the premier class are devices that can be controlled from an external audio source (smartphone, tablet, MP3 player, laptop) in addition to permanently installed patterns. This approach opens up an infinite range of stimulation patterns. In the internet and here especially at smartstim.com you will find complete “symphonies for the body” composed by masters of their craft. Among them also many compositions, which go far beyond what devices with built-in patterns can achieve.
That’s why I can only recommend these power boxes with stereo audio input. Everything else is money thrown out, because after the purchase of a really good device it will inevitably end up in the corner!
Unfortunately there are only 3 models in this top class worldwide, the ET-312B by the American manufacturer EROSTEK, the 2b by the British manufacturer ESTIM SYSTEMS and since 2019 also the AXIS by the British manufacturer ElectraStim.
However, all three are in a price range that usually discourages beginners. Only for this reason I have also included an inexpensive TENS device in my assortment.
Another possibility to get a good power box at a reasonable price is to build it yourself. On smartstim.com, with the nickname “TroniC”, I have published two construction manuals . One for a very simple device, which can be assembled by anyone, even without electronic knowledge. On the other hand for an absolute high-end device for the professionals, which stands out from all devices on the market so far due to its possibilities and feeling. However, the latter is only for people with basic electronics knowledge and soldering skills.
Any device that is also suitable for music reproduction can be used as a source for controlling an audio-enabled power box, because many stimulation patterns are available as normal MP3 files or in the form of audio output from specialised Apps. In this respect, everyone today will have such a device available, whether in form of a smartphone, MP3 player, laptop, tablet or even CD player with headphone jack. However, to ensure absolute electrical safety, only battery or rechargeable devices should be used. Explanations can be found in the detailed E-Stim Compendium.
1.5 Safety instructions
E-Stim is not dangerous if used correctly and precautions are taken. Here are the most important rules:
- Only use the types of power boxes named above that have been explicitly developed for use on the human body or the two DIY solutions mentioned above.
- Do not use any transformers, batteries, PA amplifiers or the similar, which can be read negligently on some pages on the Internet. This could be very painful, cause serious injury or even kill you!
- People with heart pacing or other vital electronic implants should avoid E-Stim entirely or use it only after consulting their physician. Even if only very small currents are used for E-Stim, they could disturb the pacemaker and lead to death in the worst case.
- Use E-Stim only below the waistline, because a current flow through the head, neck or heart can also be very dangerous, despite the small currents.
- Use latex or rubber gloves because accidentally touching active electrodes with your hand could lead to current flowing through the heart.

4 E-Stim Compendium (coming soon)
A very detailed compendium with presentation of history, medical, biochemical, physical and technical contexts will become available for download as a separate document in the near future!
Finally, here you can find a small reference book of the most important terms used.
Since English is the most common language in the “scene”, the English terms have also become the most common and therefore I use them for the sorting order.
