Electro-play is one of my favourite forms of sensation play and probably one of the most misunderstood forms of BDSM so I am going to try and demystify it by answering questions that I am most often asked.
What does Electro-Play mean?
Electro-play is any type of BDSM play (sexual or non-sexual) where electricity is used on the body to create different sensations. It can both be pleasurable or painful. It’s all about how you want it to be which makes it incredibly versatile and therefore suitable to be used in a variety of scenes: bondage, vac bed, medical scenarios all come to mind.
The most common electrical toys are neon / violet wands and pulse based stimulation. The most common would be the TENS, my favorite being the Erostek. Both neon wands and violet wands use static electricity to create a “shocking” feeling on the skin. TENS units work off of the electricity within our bodies to cause involuntary muscular contractions.
There are a lot of myths out there about electro-play. First, the sort of play I’m talking about is very different than being shocked by household current or an electric fence. Unfortunately, such things are often the only point of reference a lot of people have when it comes to feeling electricity. Proper electro-stimulation is done with devices made for use on the human body and feels entirely different than what a novice might imagine.
Another common myth is electro-play can force someone to have an orgasm. While it may certainly assist in having one, an orgasm cannot be induced against someone’s will. It’s true that some people can orgasm from just electro-play but most require additional stimulation or at the very least the electro-stimulation must be part of an erotic situation
For some, electro-play is the holy grail and my investment in equipment for my Toronto BDSM studio is second to none. The look of the electro devices alone sends a shiver down my back and may at face value leave many cold however, sessions involving them are some of the most sensual sessions I’ve taken part in. All it takes is an open mind and willingness to please and adhere to my dominant nature and you may find yourself experiencing a incomprehensible feeling of sexual enlightenment.
