Beginner's Guide To Electro Sex
For electrifying pleasure that promises to deliver shocking results every time, electro sex is a must! If you’ve heard the buzz surrounding this increasingly popular activity but you need advice on getting started, this guide has the answer to all of those important questions and will keep you safe as you embark on your new adventure. Whether you want to increase the voltage in your sex play or intensify your BDSM fun, sparks will certainly fly once you get started.
The human body is mainly made up of water, meaning it is an excellent conductor of electricity. As the electricity passes through the nerve endings, it will tantalise, tickle and tease those senses. This sort of play offers orgasmic and euphoric enjoyment, but also promises to deliver sadistic satisfaction. Electro sex isn’t always about pain, but if you’re into that sort of thing we guarantee it won’t disappoint ;)
As always, UberKinky is here to aid you in practicing safe sex play! So if everything you’ve heard about electro sex so far has you feeling tingly all over, be sure to take note of these important safety tips. It is vital that the electrical charge does not pass through the heart, so when you apply two electrodes you must always determine the route that the current will take. It is also essential that the power is off when applying electrodes as you could inadvertently pass a current through the chest or head. We want that heart to be skipping beats, but for the right reasons!
- Use a water based lubricant with internal attachments
- Use electro conductive gel with external attachments
- Ensure that attachments are dry when connecting to the device (after cleaning)
- Remove body jewellery; it is likely to get hot and damage the skin
- Make sure you are fully hydrated before you start your play
- Use an e-stim device if you are pregnant, epileptic, have any heart problems or have a pacemaker fitted
- Use electro sex attachments on broken or irritated skin
- Form a connection anywhere above the waist
- Use piercings as electrodes
If you’ve never tried it, how do you know what works best? Well, it’s going to take a lot of experimentation, but this is one science lesson everyone will enjoy! Here at UberKinky we have discovered the following combinations; why not give them a go to get that blood pumping? Don’t forget to apply plenty of electro sex gel!
- One electrode attached to the outside of the left buttock and the other inside the right buttock
- An electrode in either crease where the thigh meets the abdomen, approximately 3 inches from the penis
- One electrode attached to each lower inside leg, just above the ankle bone
- An electrode in either crease where the thigh meets the abdomen
So you’re the adventurous type and want to enjoy a bit of deep exploration? Well, all good things come to those who wait! To begin with we recommend a mono-polar kit that has pads for electrodes. Attach to those sensitive areas and enjoy an incredible pulsing, throbbing and stroking sensation. Electro sex kits use two types of output; monopolar and bipolar. With a monopolar output the current flows in one direction between two points. Essentially this means that two electrodes must be attached to the body to form a circuit. A bipolar output has two conductive surfaces built into it; therefore the circuit is already complete. The current will flow between the positive and negative electrodes within the attachment. Some people use a TENS or EMS machine in their electro play; however we recommend you pick out a kit that is specially designed for this kind of electrifying escapade.
In need of a real buzz, but not sure where to find it? Here are the UberKinky bestsellers;
“I looked on loads of sites for a kit that would get me started, found this one and it ticked all the boxes. We have had plenty of fun trying all the different settings. Would I get another one? Yes I would!”

Your body is an excellent conductor of electricity, but why not offer it a helping hand? When it comes to electro sex, lubrication is paramount. Dry skin has an extremely high resistance and will prevent the electrodes from working properly. It may even cause an unwanted sharp and painful sensation. In addition to hydrating the skin, a lubricant will also increase sensitivity and make the stimulation much more intense and exciting; so even if BDSM play is your chosen route, lube will enhance every ferocious feeling. That’s why it is important to apply a lubricant/gel to all of those intimate areas that will be receiving a charge. Steer clear of silicone lubricant as it acts as an insulator.
For shocking results every time, UberKinky recommends;
Are you feeling fully recharged after your sex play? Well there’s a slight possibility that the bottom in your new activity may be feeling ever so slightly tender. The skin can become a little red where the electrodes have been attached, however this is more likely as a result of the application to the skin, rather than the electrical charge. It is important to treat the areas with care and apply moisturiser if possible. It is also relatively normal to experience muscle soreness and twinges for a couple of days.
Don’t forget to keep those attachments clean! It is safe to use water and standard toy cleaning products to keep your electrodes/attachments spic and span, but please ensure that the connectors are dry when they are plugged back into the machine.
