For many people electricity and genitalia don’t go hand in hand. It’s not something we often consider when we think of sex or masturbation. While nobody is advocating sticking your parts in a wall socket, it’s something that might be worth exploring in a safe and harmless, but thoroughly enjoyable, way.
What is Electro Sex?
If you’ve seen the movie Watchmen, you doubtlessly remember the “electric” love scene between Silk Spectre and Dr Manhattan. (Featured above.) What you might not know is that mixing electricity and sex isn’t just for superheroes.
Electro sex, as it’s known, is a safe and pleasureable way of stimulating the genitals and erogenous zones with a controlled amount of electrical energy. As the human body is made mostly of water, it’s an excellent conductor of electricity. Whether it’s a sex toy or a conductive pad, when you apply it to the body, electricity can pass through the nerve cells creating intense sensations akin to vibration.
There are lots of types of electro sex toys and they generally work in the same thrilling way. An Electro box will deliver waves of electricity that are safe enough for a human body through to simple pads that you place on your intimate areas, or through to a variety of toys and accessories.
You might be reading this and thinking, “Well, I’m not interested in pain with my pleasure,” but electro sex isn’t actually about inflicting or receiving pain. The lower settings of many electro sex toys deliver sensations so faint you barely feel a tingle.
