If you are any kind of man who is worth your salt, then I am sure you have seen some of the electrostimulation (estim, stim) videos of men cumming or edging hands free on these devices. See an example here or here or here.
Being the cock whore that I am (understatement of the year) this is something I have dabbled in a bit (ok, more than dabbled). I’m going to share my estim experiences on here so that you can decide for yourself if this is right for you.
First there is a great website called Smartstim that is more like an old-school bulletin board. However I’m going to go over some of the basics here.
If you only have 15 minutes a day before the wife or significant other comes home to play with this device, save your money and don’t buy it. Read no further. Estim is a very unique feeling. The men I have shown how it works always ask how does it feel. My best attempt is like an internal vibrator (depending where you hook up the electrodes gives you different sensations). At first these sensations may not feel good to you. It takes time, patience, experimentation to get the sensations that you see the men experiencing in the videos. It isn’t instantaneous either. I know of very few men who can hook up and cum in 15 minutes. Plan on at least an hour per session, and the first many being several hours before honing your skills.
The Most Basic Setup
For the most basic estim you can get yourself a cheap TENS unit. This is what I did when I first wanted to experiment. However, I feel like I wasted my money. My TENS is in the basement gathering dust. The TENS unit is designed to send pulses of electricity between the two contacts wherever you place them. These pulses are not made to be pleasurable. They are made to contract the muscle. Contract, release, contract, release. Some men may find this pleasurable, but I did not. I tested it over and over but I never was able to get the erotic feelings that I wanted.
The Made for Play Box
I pretty much immediately decided to drop some serious cash on a made-for-play estim box. I chose the ET312 from Erostek because of what I kept hearing from regular estimmers. This is the end-all-be-all of boxes, but it is a pretty penny.
This is where most men stop and decide they can neither afford it nor want to bother with this device. “The hand suffices” they say. They aren’t willing to invest hundreds of dollars, or they think a TENS unit will work. In my dabbling I would say save your money and just go for the real thing with a made-for-play box if you are interested in finding out how estim feels. If you find you don’t like it re-sell it (there are A LOT) of men just like you who will buy a used box to try it out.
As for the argument that the hand suffices this is true. I masturbate and edge with my hand. Feels great. Once I got the estim box up and running and understood how to use it, I have to say the edging and final orgasm that result from it are out of this world. It has been the best edging and cum sessions I have ever had in my life. Being hands free while your cock gets stimulated and precum starts flowing and you pump your hips and finally a hands-free orgasm that is like NO OTHER (really, I’m not exaggerating here, being a non-religious person this is where I saw my god in estim) is the best. Boning up just thinking about it.
This doesn’t mean I don’t still masturbate. Actually I masturbate most of the time with my hand. I have had my estim box for close to 10 years, and have had hours of enjoyment, but often I am just too lazy to get all the stuff hooked up. Every time I do get wired up I tell myself, “Why don’t I do this every time. It feels so fucking amazing!”
Build your Own Box
There are ways around the expensive boxes that you purchase. You make your own. Unless you are an engineer or experienced in soldering and building electronics I wouldn’t suggest it. You are dealing with your body and you really don’t want to fry your penis, let alone kill yourself. I would refer you to Smartstim for specifics if you are intrigued.
