What about using TENS units in erotic play?

I've been considering buying one of those.

Yes, I think TENS uints have been explained earlier in this thread. I think back on my post (#9) is where they are talked about the most. If you have any questions, feel free ti ask.

We used a TENS unit once. We put one pad above my penis and the other below the scrotum. It felt like the tip of my cock was on fire.

Here's a rabbit hole for you: Google "electroejaculation". Also, "semen collection". This isn't porn, it's medical and veterinary. Interesting stuff! Turns out, electroejaculation for humans requires general anesthesia, due to the pain involved.

Seems like you had it set too high. Turn the intensity down and I'd guess it would be more pleasurable...unless you like the feeling of your penis is on fire.
Also experiment with where you place the pads. Different sensations come from where you place the pads, too.

I don't necessarily agree with that. While I've never attempted it myself, I think the right sensation directly on the prostate area can stimulate ejaculation. I don't think it works for everybody, because there is a process that needs to be followed, one having the subject relaxed.

I know the medical field considers general anesthetics necessary, but I wouldn't think it's just for pain. It could be for many reasons, such as a phobia against the use of any kind of electricity, because a prob is being inserted into their anus...and because it's an electrical probe, all of which could cause tension in the subject. Relaxation is one of the primary requirements for this process to work and in many males, the above could be less than relaxing.

Also, they are seeking an efficient way to get semen. General anesthetics allows them to control the process and that allows it all to be more efficient.

Even when this is done in bulls for semen collection, it's always mentioned that the voltage is mild, but it stimulates the glands, causing a reaction. And I fully understand the reaction.

Again, I've never personally done this and never will. It's just not my thing. But, from what I've read and heard from others, the feeling isn't that much pain, but it can feel uncomfortable in the beginning. Uncomfortable meaning unusual or weird. I also think those who consider this a sexual desire of theirs, wouldn't see it as unusual or weird.

None of the tools for this are at all cheap. I guess you really have to be interested in this, or have a fair amount of expendable income. For me, that's where the pain would come in.

I assume the docs are running more juice than the average bdsm "toy". They aren't interested in cooling their jets while milder stimulus works its magic. But really, I'm just guessing. Still wouldn't pass an opportunity to get wired up by someone who knows what they're doing.

That's entirely possible. Even a dentist is going to cause "discomfort" and unless you tell him the Novocaine hasn't started working yet, he's still going to charge you for it.

And most operations or procedures are scheduled, and for all doctors and hospitals, time is money. They are more interested in results and getting those results with the least amount of effort necessary.

And doctors are allowed to use general anesthetics where BDSM people aren't. And when you think about it, why would somebody want to be asleep in a BDSM procedure?

There’s not a whole lot of area to put the pads. And after adjusting the knobs and settings we could not find a setting that was what atisapated. I also was not going to put the pad directly on my penis or scrotum.

I understand and agree with everything you've said except for one thing. I could be wrong, because there are an awful lot of different TENS units out there, but from your description of the sensation, it sounded like you had it set too high. I don't know if you actually did or not, just going on your description of the sensation.

All of the TENS units I've seen are very adjustable. Even the simplest ones have a very low setting to start off with. The only difference, in my experience, has been that some are more powerful than others or more adjustable. You didn't mention if this was a single TENS or a double TENS. If it is a double TENS, you have more knobs to deal with and the combination of all of those knobs can result in a more powerful current than you'd think it would be.

But, I'll assume you did have the settings as low as they would go and that's why I suggested moving the pads around. I agree that your scrotum has some very thin skin and not being someone who would want anything electrical around my personal stuff anyway, I wouldn't want one of the pads there, either. I think I've already said I'm a bit of a wimp.

Depending on the intensity of the setting, I don't think the penis is that sensitive, at least at the base, but if there is pubic hair, you won't get a good connection anyway. I've seen people apply the pads on the length of the penis itself and some attachments even go into the hole. But again, being the wimp that I am, not me.

What you could do would leave the TENS unit on with one pad attached, and then experiment with the other one, by moving it around. If you have a clip that attaches to the pad, you might be able to use the clip as a temporary conductor to give you a sensation without having to deal with the stickiness of the pad. If for some reason that doesn't work, you might have to just use the pad.

It won't hurt to have one pad stuck and move the other one around. The most you might feel is a short spike as you first touch yourself with the second lead, but once you have a connection, it should act as if it was the pad connected.

Experiment with placement. The spots you had the pads connected were fine, but if you can't turn the TENS unit down any lower than it was, those leads were very close to each other with minimal body tissue for the current to travel through. Moving one of the two leads, increases the distance between them, and that might give you the sensation you desire. Not knowing the sensation you are looking for, or how that TENS works, it's worth a try.

It's one of the basic principles of electrical current. When you move the leads further apart, you are increasing the resistance in the circuit. Your body is the resistance and by adding more body tissue between the pads, you lessen the intensity of the TENS unit's power. Think of it as another way to lower the intensity or volume, when your TENS settings are already at their lowest.

Only you know what sensation you are looking for, so experimenting a little is what you need to do. I agree with you about where not to attach the pads, but as long as you are below the waist, anywhere else you want to put that second pad should be fine.

OK, with all of that said, I still wonder if there was something else causing that TENS to be more powerful than you wanted, at the lowest setting. Sweat has moisture in it and electricity and water love each other and that might make the sensation more intense. I'm just trying to understand the pain you described at such a low setting.

It could be just that you had the pads very close together. Experiment as I've suggested, and if you think you might have a spot that works, but the intensity is too low, you know you can always turn it up a little bit, on the unit itself.

As always, go slow and be safe. If your TENS has a manual, be sure you read and understand how everything works. It might also be possible to get a manual by Googling for it. I've done that with a lot of different things...my car radio was one. I now know it's a lot cooler than I originally thought.

Don't be like most men and just assume you can handle it alone. If you've ever seen the TV show "Home Improvement" and Tim "The Tool man" Taylor, don't be like Tim.

Yes it’s a duel and it has three adjustments. One on the top is overall power two on the front. One for pulse rate and the other is called width, but I would describe as sharpness. I think it is a good idea to put one pad on then search with the other.

Yes there is a reason it was more powerful than I wanted. So I purchased the tens unit 7-8 years ago. A physical therapist said they were great for back pain. So I tried it, didn’t help. So I took the battery out put it back in the case. So shannon my other half was looking up information about prostate health and cancer. She came upon something abou TENS and prostate and told me about it. I told her I have a tens unit. So next thing you know we are attaching pads to my genatil area. So she put the battery in it and plugged me in. So I guess went I put it away I just took the battery out and didn’t turn it off. So it was turned up when she plugged me in.

This looks like a fairly nice unit and yes, it is a double pole TENS. I also noticed it's on sale now, too! LOL.

A TENS unit is good for relieving back pain, but it's not that easy to position the patches in the correct spot for it to work, especially, if you are trying to put them on yourself, which is next to impossible. Also, it works by stimulating blood to the affected area and by stimulating areas near the injury to dull the pain.

Sometimes it takes a while for this to work, even if you get the pads positioned in the perfect spot. So, your doctor wasn't wrong, but it's not that easy for a patient to get it to work as it should without some education and training from your doctor on where best to put the pads.

I've downloaded the manual for this unit and from a quick look, it seems like it has only square wave pulse and modulation settings. But, it does have quite a few variations to the duration of the pulse and the length of time inbetween each pulse. And the modulation settings really need more information, but I guess if you have the unit to test with, you can understand the settings better.

See how moving the pads around works for you. You might still have it turned up higher than you might think, because the manual isn't that great. It does talk about the two knobs up on top as the main controls, so that's at least something. It always amazes me when things like this assume you know what some things do, so they just give you a list of the available settings. I guess experimentation rules, in this case to find out how some of those settings will feel.

A word of caution. Don't let your significant other run the controls if she's unhappy with you over something. She can turn something up and hear you cry out in pain, then quickly say, "oh, I'm sorry...did that hurt?" If she does this, check to see if she has a smirk on her face. That will give you an idea of her mind set. Nothing against women, but they do sometimes enjoy their own little kind of fun.

By the way...what I've heard about prostate health is stimulation. That means ejaculation, either from masturbating or from sexual intercourse. It seems that prostate problems arise when men get older and that can also be when they no longer have much desire for a sex life (or maybe the wife no longer has the desire).

So, the prostate isn't stimulated like it was when he was younger. Of course, I'm not a doctor, but the way it was explained to me made sense. And there's no reason why we shouldn't enjoy sex as long as we want. Those of us who are into BDSM sexual things are more in tune with our sexual selves and so we have a distinct advantage over people with a more vanilla sex life.

I seriously doubt that I'll ever get bored with my sexual desires. Hopefully, if my information is correct, I'll also continue to have a healthy prostate gland, too.

One other note. The stickem on the pads comes off when you peel them off. It has the gummy texture of rubber cement. So it’s not for the hairy.

So for me my official vote. Electroplay wasn’t for me.

you can use Velcro straps to hold the pads against your skin, and there are other attachments you can get that don't use pads. The pads still conduct, even if that sticky substance isn't there. That's just a way to connect the pads to places like the muscles of your back where there's really no other way to connect them.

You should investigate attachments for your particular connection system. And, even if you don't find any with those particular connections, there are adapters made that will convert one type of connector to another.

As for the Velcro deal, they make Velcro straps with conductors built in, but you can get your own Velcro at Walmart and make your own straps. You can get lengths as long as 15 feet and then cut them into the lengths you want. These can also be used as bondage straps, and they are very quick to get undone, in the case of an emergency.

You just put the strap on a leg or arm or around your waist and insert the pad so it is touching the body with the strap holding it in place. In this case, with the strap holding it tightly against your body, there would be a strong enough connection that I don't think body hair would be an issue.

Do what you want. I'm not trying to say you are making a mistake with anything you decide. I'm just giving you options that you might not have been aware of.

Here is some relatively easy to follow info on how wands and TENS units work. Also, some different attachment connections to try, if you have a double TENS.

This is a list of electro toys from beginners to advanced. The last two, The Stockroom and Huse and Son, I've purchased from. They have always seemed to have high quality items.

Passion Play. This place also helps you understand and answer some questions about different new and exciting things that are out there for couples.
https://www.kinkly.com/2/1367/passio...-for-beginners

eBay. Self explanitory...
https://www.ebay.com/i/372395786003?chn=ps

Electrostimulation. Sextoy A little more advanced in play items.
https://www.sextoy.com/category/113/...ulation?page=1

The Stockroom. A lot of fun stuff here, and I think any adapter you may want is on last page of electro toys. I've linked their main page.
https://www.stockroom.com/

Huse and Son. This is where I got my violet wand. Like The Stockroom, they have quite a few advanced items that can create interesting sensations. I've linked the TENS page, but explore the whole site.

Thank you. I like visiting this thread.

Semi-recently I had a meeting with a potential play partner. He commented on the metallic threads in my sparkly sweater and hinted that he'd want me to model it later for electrical play...I didn't see him again (for other stuff that pinged my spidey sense), but should I have worried that he'd set me on fire? It sounds stupid when I write it down but I think about it sometimes.

Unless you have a pace maker TENS is pretty safe, including use on the upper body. Don’t forget one of the most common uses is during pregnancy and labour. I’ve seen a lot in two countries and never seen any with a different connector but may be in other countries they do?

I doubt this person could have set you on fire, with electricity, or that he had intentions to do so. It sounds more like he was just trying to open up a discussion with you about electroplay, to see how you reacted.

Unless you are sure they were metal, I also wonder if the sparkly things in your sweater were really metal, but probably plastic with a shiny coating of some kind and not subject to anything electric.

It does bring to mind something that is possible, though. In such a case, if the sweater did have metallic parts to it, you'd have to wonder if there were other parts that would react adversely to heat...like melting. When talking about clothing, fashion is often preferred over anybody trying to involve it in their kinky sexual play.

Children's clothing is suppose to be made of nothing that could be harmful, because they are considered helpless against some things. Adults are suppose to have more common sense and able to make smart decisions. I do think it's unlikely, but you just never know about some fabrics and how they react to different stimuli.

You know the common step ladder is covered with warnings about what you should NOT do with them. Some of those warnings are there because someone tried them, an injury occurred and a law suit was the result. It's not easy to find a way to put such warnings on clothing.

Personally, I would rather see a woman's body without any sweaters or even any clothing, when playing with her. Oh, every now and then, kinky sex is fun with a partially clothed partner, but I usually see clothing as a hindrance, when playing with anything involving electroplay.

Of course, maybe I'm just a purist.

Question Scat mat (pet deterrent)

So, I tried searching the forum to see if this question had previously been answered, but I couldn’t find anything on it and thought I should ask to make sure I know of any potential dangers before doing it.

A couple of years ago, when my dom and I moved into a new home, our cats took offense to the new setting and started peeing on the couch. So, we bought a scat mat to keep them off the couch (link and description below). This worked wonderfully, and we were able to remove the mat after just a few weeks. However, I recently found it when I was cleaning out the cupboard under the stairs, and it got me to wondering.

A scat mat (https://www.chewy.com/petsafe-scatma...c-pet/dp/48622) is basically a strip of some sort of plasticky material with wires running through it and a battery pack attached. It reacts to pressure (e.g. if your cat jumps up on the couch and steps on it) and releases a three-second burst of static electricity—or at least I think that’s what they mean when they say “three-second burst of a static pulse” on the website. Our version is meant to be versatile and deter pets of many sizes, so it has three different settings to control the strength of the static pulse. In case it’s relevant, the style we have is the sofa size.

I’m thinking, because it’s static, it might be safer to use on the upper body in a limited way, e.g. if I were to lay—face-up or face-down—on the mat during a scene and my dom occasionally turned it on to give me a shock or two and then turned it back off, or perhaps using it as part of a predicament bondage scenario.

Does this seem like it would be a relatively safe introduction to electro play? Should I make sure to keep it below my waist, or do you think it would be safe to use in short bursts anywhere below the neck? Can you think of any potential dangers I might be overlooking?

I have read the entirety of this thread, and I’m thinking this should be pretty safe, but I wanted to double check. Also, neither my dom nor I has a pacemaker, so that’s not a concern.

Thanks in advance!

As a person that has done elctroplay all I can say is yes to the violet wand. It's light and erotic and doesn't shock. Tens units are for people you know and want it. It can hurt so good.

Well, sorry to say, I can't say much about the scat mat. It might be static electricity, but they might have just used the word static to describe that it's a short burst of DC current.

DC is direct current and safer than AC, which is alternating current. AC is the same as house wiring and can be very dangerous. Some DC can be dangerous, but it has to be pretty powerful and you really need to have an issue with electricity, like maybe a pace maker, etc.

So, not knowing if this mat really is sending out static electricity or a short pulse of DC current, I can't say if it's safe for above the waist. When talking about safety above the waist, it really doesn't matter how short the pulse is, because if it's going through the heart, nothing that isn't the natural electrical impulse of the heart itself is safe.

I have a friend who has had a heart attack. His heart came through it OK, as far as the muscle itself. What didn't come through so well was the small area at the bottom of the heart that creates the electrical impulse telling the heart to beat in a rhythmic way. So, since his heart wasn't beating as often as it should have, and not with a regular rhythm, he was always passing out, because of a lack of oxygenated blood.

He now has a pace maker that controls the stimulation process and he's fine. But, before it was diagnosed about this impulse problem, he would pass out at any time. He would quickly regain consciousness, but it was still scary, because of what was happening.

You don't want to mess with that little part of the heart that stimulates it to beat. It does two things. First, it stimulates it to beat. And second, that stimulation is in a rhythm that is necessary for good oxygenated blood to reach all areas of your body.

This electrical stimulation of the heart is very important and also intricate in how it knows the proper rhythm. This is one of the main reasons electroplay is only considered safe below the waist.

So, I can't safely say if this mat is OK or not. All I can see is it's run by a 9 volt battery and it seems to be safe for pets. That would also assume it's OK for humans in the same situation, but when they touch the mat, it's with four legs. You are talking about laying on it, with your tits touching, which would be a lot closer to the source of current.

All things we alter to add as a toy for electroplay need to be examined for safety. I'm sure there are people out in the world who are using unsafe toys. It's unwise to do that.

Sorry that I can't say this is safe. It might be, but even if you ask the maker, you might not get the correct information about it. They will say it's safe for the purpose it was made. You won't be using it in that way. I understand that and you understand that. I don't think they will understand that. LOL.

If it was designed with the safety of pets feet in mind I should say that it would probably also be safe for your feet. I think a great predicament bondage scenario could be thought up with that...
