   Josh Gill
Today I’m bringing you a shockingly good review of the very best electro sex toys out there! Whether you are looking for estim for beginners or some more advanced electro sex devices, I’ve got all bases covered! Today’s test winner is the Kink Lab Neon Wand, which looks formidable but is very accessible and a lot of fun!
1 Test Winner

Kinklab Neon Wand

 Kinklab Neon Wand

  • Want to try electrostimulation for the first time
  • Enjoy sensation play
  • Want a new punishment tool
  • Prefer tingly stingy sensations
  • Want an electric wand with lots of attachments

Kinklab Neon Wand

  • Want more intense electrostimulation
  • Are pregnant
  • Have a pacemaker or heart condition
  • Prefer internal electro-stimulation

The Kinklab Neon Wand is a full kit for exploring the thrill of electrostimulation. It’s intended for external use and can be use to create a light tingle to more intense zap on your partner’s most sensitive spots! I love that you get a range of different glass tips to choose from, with some having a smaller, more focused tip and others providing broad stimulation. One thing that really makes this toy fun to use, in my opinion, is the way it glows and the intense buzzing sound it makes! The anticipation of when the next zap will hit is half of the fun! Not to mention, you can see the little strikes of electricity coming out of the wand and hitting the skin!

  • Intimidating buzzing sound and glowing electrodes
  • Four different shape electrodes
  • Beginner friendly
  • Very straightforward to use
  • Not too intense

  • The handle is bulky
  • Might not be intense enough for some
Kinklab Neon Wand
Length13 inches
MaterialsPPV Plastic Hardware + Copper Tube + Glass Rods
RechargeableNo — mains powered
Colors AvailableBlack/red handle + purple glow or white handle + red glow

I would say this is a fantastic set for anyone who prefers milder sensations or is looking for an intense psychological experience. The loud buzzing, together with the glowing attachments really makes you feel like you are at the mercy of a mad scientist! In terms of the stimulation, I found it to range from a light tingle to a sharper zap, but it was never painful. It also depended where on the body it was used, with the nipples and vulva being more sensitive and therefore feeling more intense. While this might appeal to some, others might crave a little more intensity.

If you’re impatient to ramp up the voltage just hit the boost button and feel an instantaneous and intense surge of power. Compatible with all 2mm connector toys, this is a powerbox that would satisfy Thor himself.

3 Cheapest

ElectraStim KIX Cheap Beginner Kit

 ElectraStim KIX

  • are looking to experiment with estim for the first time
  • would like a pair of versatile electrapads
  • are looking for a portable buddy to take on your travels
  • want to familiarize yourself with various intensity levels

ElectraStim KIX

  • are expecting a huge amount of power
  • want a versatile power box for multiple toys
  • want to power a bi-polar device

Designed to be a friendly hand ushering you into your first estim experience, the ElectraStim Kix includes everything you need to get your first taste. The unit itself features 5 built-in stimulation patterns, including one where you can fully customize the frequency and intensity to suit your needs. Two self-adhesive electro pads connect to the device with a 2mm connector cable (included) and can be placed anywhere on the body (below the chest) to give you a flavor of what estim actually feels like. The Kix is extremely small and portable, with a 3-hour battery life on a full charge, allowing you to practice at your own pace, wherever you’re most comfortable.

  • Perfect introduction
  • Everything you need to get started
  • Color spectrum represents intensity
  • Versatile elctrapads

  • Limited functionality
  • Limited power
ElectraStim KIX
Battery Life180 minutes

If the SensaVox was the best device for the most experienced, the Kix estim kit represents the perfect introduction to the e-stimulation scene. Everything you need to get started is ready right out of the box. No need to worry about accessories, connectors, pin size, or anything else. Simply charge up and start experimenting with the included pads. Now as far as estim toys go, electro pads are about as basic as they get. In a world where toys like the Komodo and the Prestige exist, they’re unlikely to keep eyes from wandering for long. What they will do, though, is let you know whether estim is for you. The Kix is specifically for a first-time (or perhaps road trip) experience.

4 Beginner

ElectraStim EM60-E Flick Electrosex Beginner Kit

 ElectraStim EM60-E Flick

  • want a versatile estim machine you can grow with
  • and your partner would like to enjoy it together
  • like the idea of being able to control intensity with a flick of the wrist
  • are relatively new to estim

ElectraStim EM60-E Flick

  • want to use bi-polar toys
  • would like more toys included (see alternative below)

The Flick is a full-sized estim machine perfect for beginners and intermediates alike. As well to the power kit, which uses TENS technology for the toe-curling effect, the set also includes 2 self-adhesive packs, 2 replacement pads, and all the cables you need to get started. The Flick gets its name from the innovative, motion-activated way the device is controlled. With a simple flick of your wrist, you can send jolts of butt-clenching voltage directly to the pads. A softer or firmer flick will alter the intensity accordingly. Beyond that, the Flick offers a huge 24-intensity level that can be operated independently of 7 pattern functions. Apply two pads to yourself or share one each with a partner and ride the lightning together.

  • Wide range of settings
  • Motion-controlled intensity
  • Simple to use
  • 4 pads included

  • Electrapads lose adhesion
  • No other accessories included
ElectraStim EM60-E Flick
Storage Bag IncludedYes

The Flick offers greater versatility over the Kix while coming in considerably cheaper than the SensaVox. This is likely to be the most popular choice for those who have a strong inkling they’re going to enjoy the estim world. Controlling the intensity with a ‘flick’ of the wrist is novel and surprisingly sexy with no need to fiddle with the buttons. The range of intensities and patterns is impressive for a model of this price range. Again Electrapads are a staple of the estim world, though many will want to explore other options sooner than later. The Flick multipack set is a great starter option, with additional probe and zapping cock loops. Two other things to note; if you have a bi-polar toy you will need the Flick Duo; the electrapads can lose adhesion over time, and replacements may be needed.

5 Dildo

ElectraStim Komodo Dildo

 ElectraStim Komodo

  • Want a high quality electo-stim dildo
  • Want targeted P-spot or G-spot stimulation
  • Enjoy slightly larger dildos
  • Already own a compatible power pack

ElectraStim Komodo

  • Aren't sure if estim sex toys are for you
  • Prefer external stimulation
  • Don't own a compatible power pack and don't want to buy one

The creme de la creme of electro sex toys, the Komodo Dildo is here to change your life forever. Simply attach to your compatible ElectraStim Stimulator unit and experience unparalleled levels of electrifying pleasure. The dildo measures 6 inches in insertable length with a width of 1.43 inches, complimented by deep ridges running the length of the shaft and a slightly bulbous head, perfectly designed for G-spot or P-spot stimulation. The wide-flared base can be used with the included suction cup cradle for the best hands-free ride of your life or in a strap-on harness. The one thing to keep in mind is that you do need to have a power pack, which is sold separately.

  • Perfect quality
  • Included suction cup cradle
  • Ridged and bulbous shaft
  • Compatible with O-ring harnesses

  • Needs a power pack
  • Costly
ElectraStim Komodo
Diameter1.43 inches
Length6.5 inches
Insertable length6 inches

Hands down my favorite electro sex toy, the Komodo is an experience unparalleled in this realm. Feel the orgasm-inducing current pass from the dildo to your most sensitive areas and back again with deranged intensity. The Komodo has been designed for two things: The finest P-Spot / G-Spot stimulation possible, and completely hands-free climaxing. The included suction cup cradle is a testament to the fact that hands aren’t necessary. Although as I mentioned before, you will need to purchase the power pack, such as an estim power unit, separately, which can end up being costly, so I would only recommend this if you already know you love the feel of electro-stimulation!

6 Metal Dildo

ElectraStim Wave Electro Dildo

 ElectraStim Wave Dildo

  • like rigid sex toys
  • want conductivity the full-length of the device
  • want a premium steel estim device
  • would like a smaller, less intimidating toy

ElectraStim Wave Dildo

  • like a bit of flexibility from your dildos
  • are on a budget

The estim Wave is the pinnacle of decadent elegance. Crafted tip to base from polished steel, rippled with orgasmic potential. 7 insulating rims at the bottom prevent static charge from being absorbed by the hand, instead directing current the full length of the device. Whatever the Wave touches, electrifying pleasure abounds. Even without an estim machine, the wave is a premium-grade dildo. The metal has absolutely zero give, just right for those that like a rigid toy, and the accentuated, bulbous curves are sure to satisfy both anally and vaginally.

  • Polished steel
  • Exquisite quality
  • Full length conductivity
  • Insulated handle

  • Very expensive
  • May be too rigid
ElectraStim Wave Dildo
Length7.5 inches
Insertable length5.5 inches
Diameter1.11 inches

Like many premium estim toys, the proportions of the Wave are pretty minimal. With an insertable length of just 5.5 inches and a slim diameter of 1.1,” this may well be much smaller than similar toys you have grown accustomed to. Size is not the aim of the game here, instead, the Wave has been constructed from polished silver, heavily ridged, with an insulating handle to ensure the full length of the toy pulses with electro energy from the moment of insertion. The size then is undoubtedly beginner-friendly. Just note, however, that the complete rigidity may feel a little uncomfortable if you prefer silicone and soft plastic-based toys. The Wave is also rather pricey. A result of the premium builds no doubt, though again a little restrictive for beginners.

7 Butt plug

ElectraStim Bi-Polar Electrosex Noir Rocker

 ElectraStim Bi-Polar Electrosex

  • Prefer internal estim toys
  • Are into anal play
  • Already have an ElectraStim power unit

ElectraStim Bi-Polar Electrosex

  • Are on a budget
  • Don't want to buy an ElectraStim power unit

If you already love a bit of anal play and want to make it even kinkier, I’ve got just the thing to treat your derriere to the delights of electro-stimulation! Not only does it fill you up nicely, you can even get some grinding perineum stimulation as you rock on the base, even while wired up thanks to the 90 degree plug-in points! Once attached to an ElectraStim power unit, you can enjoy teasing zaps that cause pleasurable contractions around the plug. The plug is made of body safe silicone and features a slim neck and t-bar base which makes for some very comfortable wearing!

  • 3 different sizes available
  • Great for both sexes
  • Comfortable to wear
  • Great range of intensities
  • Can be worn sitting down

  • No storage bag
  • ElectraStim stimulator sold separately
ElectraStim Bi-Polar Electrosex
AllergiesLatex-Free, Phthalate-Free
DiameterSmall: 1.19 inches
Insertable lengthSmall: 4 inches
LengthSmall: 5 inches

I would say this is one of the best electro sex toys on the market if you are looking to combine estim and anal play! The gender neutral design and three available sizes really open this up to anyone who wants to try it. It’s a bit unfortunate that, as with a lot electo sex toys, you will need to buy the ElectraStim power pack separately, which is pretty pricey. However, I do like that you can choose which power unit you use, with each providing a different level of intensity, and the overall power and quality you get is fantastic! 

8 Kit

Kinklab Obsidian Neon Wand Intensity Kit

 Kinklab Obsidian Intensity Kit

  • Want a wide range of compatible electric sex toys
  • Enjoy flogging and pinpoint sensation
  • Have a little experience with electro stimulation
  • Prefer external stimulation

Kinklab Obsidian Intensity Kit

  • Haven't tried any electrosex toys yet
  • Don't want something that's mains powered
  • Don't like the attachments (there are other bundles)

An electro toy kit with everything you need to seriously ramp the voltage up on your life. The Kinklab Neon Wand is widely accepted as one the most user-friendly, sleek, and safe wands available and I can really see why! The wand comes with two thrilling attachments that will give your BDSM and sensation play a whole new level of fun! The Electro-Whip is an e-stim tour-de-force. A total of ten heavy strips of hyper-conductive silicone allow you to crack this supercharged whip with truly awesome results. The Flex Capacitor channels a surge of electricity through its small, forked tongue. Warning: this may be one of Kinklab’s most intense electric sex toys yet.

  • Easy to use
  • Quality accessories included
  • Huge range of compatible attachments
  • Everything you need to start

  • May be too much for total beginners
  • Big investment
  • Mains powered only
Kinklab Obsidian Intensity Kit
MaterialsSilicone, glass, copper, leather

I’m a big fan of the sleek black design of the Obsidian Kit and that it comes with everything you need to get started. While this violet wand is relatively easy to use, I would say these attachments are more advanced than the regular Kinklab Neon Wand. One of the main downsides to the Kinklab Obsidian Kit is the price. This is the most expensive product in the review, so I would recommend to those who already know they love electro sex devices and want some more advanced attachments to play with! The other thing that I like about this kit is that once you have the main handle, you can buy a whole range of exciting attachments! Think conductive paddles, probe electrodes, electrified rollers, and so so much more.

9 Cock ring

ElectraStim Prestige Cock Ring

 ElectraStim Prestige

  • want a quality estim cock ring
  • enjoy using conductive gel to enhance the experience
  • want a sleek and sexy aesthetic
  • are looking for a snug fit

ElectraStim Prestige

  • are too girthy for the device to fit comfortably

The most electrifying cock ring on the market is designed to be worn anywhere on the shaft and deliver the full force of your estim power pack to the full circumference of the ring. Electrical pulses are distributed evenly from the snug-fitting, 100% metal device directly to the penis for an out-of-this-world experience. 8 equally spaced holes allow the cock ring to hold conductive gel for the most intense e-stimulation possible. Whether enjoyed alongside other devices, with a partner, or on your own, this is one of the best estim devices money can buy. If you’re looking for more challenges for your sub, check out our favorite BDSM cock rings.

  • 100% metal construction
  • Sexy aesthetic
  • Even distribution of current
  • Holes for conductive gel

  • No flexibility
  • Limited size option
ElectraStim Prestige
Diameter1.4 inches
Width0.6 inches

The Prestige is a near-perfect estim cock ring. The considerable width means the sensation is distributed evenly across a wider surface area for a comfortable and safe experience, free of the ‘spikes’ current other similar devices can cause. The metal adds a weighty and quality feel to the overall device, while the evenly spaced holes are both functional and attractive. At 1.4 inches in width, the ring should fit most average penises snugly. However, with no other size option and absolutely no flexibility in the rigid material, it is likely not to be suitable for all. You may wish to pull out a tape measure and make sure the fit is right first. If it is, there’s no other reason not to opt for this little beauty over any other option.

10 Simple

Zeus Electrosex Palm Powerbox

 Zeus Electrosex Palm Powerbox

  • Want to feel what electrical stimulation feels like
  • Are looking for a straightforward way to get into electro sex toys
  • Are interested in the sensation play aspects of electrostim
  • Are on a tight budget

Zeus Electrosex Palm Powerbox

  • Are experienced and prefer a more intense shock
  • Want an electrosex toy you can use internally
  • Would prefer a higher, non-plastic build quality

Put a little added spark into your play with one of the cheapest and best beginner electro sex toys you can get your eager mitts on. I would say this basic power box is perfect for those dipping their toes into electrostim play for the first time, and comes with four reusable electrode pads to place on the skin. You can explore how electrical stimulation feels across the body, with the box giving you eight different patterns and ten intensity levels to play with. As the Zeus Palm Powerbox is battery-powered, this is an incredibly affordably-priced starter kit that you can get playing with immediately.

  • Beginner-friendly
  • Multiple modes
  • 4 reusable adhesive pads

  • Construction feels a little cheap
  • Does not come with instructions
  • Cannot be used internally
  • Battery-powered
Zeus Electrosex Palm Powerbox
LengthController: 3 inches, Pads: 1.9 inches, Lead Wires: 55 inches
MaterialsController: Hard plastic
RechargeableNo, Uses 3 AAA Batteries (not included)

While I wouldn’t say this is the highest quality electro sex out there, it is a good starting point if you are on a budget or just want to test the waters.  You can experience a little taste of what’s on offer from this new realm of delights in a safe and thrilling way. However, if raw power is what you’re after, then this may not be the toy for you. Similarly, if you’re looking for an electro sex toy that you can use internally, like a dildo or anal toy, then you’ll want to keep reading!

11 Anal

Volt Electro-Flare Plug by CalExotics

 Volt Electro-Flare Plug

  • Want vibrations and e-stimulation
  • Prefer larger, tapered butt plugs
  • Are new to electro sex toys

Volt Electro-Flare Plug

  • Prefer smaller butt plugs
  • Don't like vibration stimulation
  • Want something mains powered and more powerful

This another great electro sex toy that combines vibration and e-stim for some serious sensation. Only this time, this is for the anal lovers. 7 vibration patterns operate independently of 5 electro-stimulation intensities. All can be accessed wireless thanks to the simple remote control, so you can let a partner take control. The Flare is heavily tapered and crafted from silky silicone for easy insertion, though with a hefty insertable length of 5.25 inches, it’s sure to leave you feeling satisfied. The plug is fully waterproof while using the vibrations (not when the e-stim is on).


  • Vibrations and e-stimulation
  • Remote control
  • Easy to insert
  • Quality materials

  • Quite large
Volt Electro-Flare Plug
MaterialsSilicone, nickle-free alloy
Length5.75 inches
Insertable length5.25 inches
Diameter1.5 inches
Vibration modes7
Charging Time120 minutes
Battery Life100 minutes
WaterproofYes (E-Stim turned off)

Compared to the other electric butt plug in this review, the Volt Electro Flare has the advantage of being a stand-alone estim toy, meaning it doesn’t need a power unit. It’s also slightly bigger so you want to make sure you are comfortable with anal toy of this size before committing to it. I also really like that you can use the electro and vibration modes together or separately depending on your mood!

12 Prostate

E-Stim Noir Sirius Prostate Massager

 E-Stim Noir Sirius Prostate Massager

  • Want dual internal and external stimulation
  • Own a compatible power pack
  • Want a size and shape specifically designed for the prostate
  • Are experienced with estim toys and want the best

E-Stim Noir Sirius Prostate Massager

  • Like to sit while using a prostate massager
  • Would prefer to buy the redesigned model
  • Want everything you need right out of the box

The Noir Sirius is another of our favorite electric prostate stimulation toys. Shaped perfectly for targetted p-spot stimulation, with a fully posable body for pinpoint precision. Four conductive points spread throughout the toy, channel electrical currents directly to the prostate and the sensitive perineum, for a butt-clenching experience like no other. Prepare yourself for climactic muscle contractions as the Noir effortlessly milks you to completion. With an orgasmically bulbous tip, swollen shaft, and curved design, this toy is as at home targeting the prostate as it is the g-spot. Even for estim toys, I would put this up there with some of the most intense experiences available.

  • Prostate and perineum stimulation
  • 4 contact points
  • Flexible, posable body
  • Comfortable to insert

  • Awkward wire placement
  • Can't use while sitting
  • Requires external power pack
E-Stim Noir Sirius Prostate Massager
Length6 inches
Insertable length5 inches
Diameter1.45 inches

For top-shelf prostate fun, the Noir is one of the most popular estim toys money can buy. The four conductive points are perfectly placed for targeted stimulation. One the main issues I see with this electro sex device is that the pins insert into the base of the plug, meaning you cannot sit down while and increasing the risk of them coming out. I would als0 say it’s quite an investment considering you need to buy or already have a compatible ElectraStim unit.  

13 Stroker

ElectraStim 'Jack Socket' Electro Stroker

 ElectraStim 'Jack Socket' Electro Stroker

  • Want an award winning e-stim stroker
  • Are a fan of Electrastim's other toys
  • Like to squeeze your stroker for increased tightness
  • Want a versatile estim toy for solo and partnered play

ElectraStim 'Jack Socket' Electro Stroker

  • Don't know if electro sex toys are for you
  • Prefer full-length strokers
  • Don't have or want to invest in a power pack
  • Want an estim toy that's quick to use

There’s no denying it, we all love fleshlights. Once you’ve tried a quality stroker it’s almost impossible to imagine your life without them. But, where do you turn when you want to take the next step? The answer is the award-winning ‘Jack Stroker’, one of the most innovative electro sex toys we’ve seen to date. Combining the real-feel texture and stimulating ribs and nubs we all know and love, with a bipolar electrical current for the most memorable stroking experience of your life. With a double-ended design and squeezable outer shell for variable tightness, this toy can be thoroughly enjoyed solo or with a partner. I’m also very impressed that it even includes conductive gel and lubricant!

  • Innovative e-stim stroker
  • Flexible case for varied tightness
  • Realistic feeling material
  • Double-ended design

  • Requires external power pack
  • Short insertable length
ElectraStim 'Jack Socket' Electro Stroker
Insertable length4 inches
Diameter1 inches

The Jack Socket is an award-winning sex toy and I can see why! As a stroker, it is exemplary, with perfectly realistic material, a double-ended design and a squeezable case – important as many strokers feature a hard-shell and lack variable tightness. I love that the open-ended design also makes this more fun for partner use. I will say that compared to the other estim toys in this review, this one takes a bit more to set up and clean, so keep that in mind. You also need to already own or purchase a compatible ElectraStim power pack.

A Beginner’s Guide

Ever felt a spark of interest when it comes to electro sex toys or e-stim toys? In this exciting chapter of our guide to better (kinky) sex, I’ll be going over the basics of how to use electro toys! We’re going to delve into the electrifying world of these unique sex toys and learn more about the science behind all the pleasure. I will also give you my top recommendations for some of the best e-stim toys for you to begin your journey with. So, have I sparked your interest? Feeling a little jolt of excitement? You’re in the right place. Let’s get down to it.

Introduction to Electro Toys

Electro sex toys, also known as e-stim toys, use electrical currents to stimulate nerve endings in the body. They can add a unique sensation to your intimate moments. They offer a different kind of pleasure that you might not have experienced before. You might think that electro toys mostly feel painful or stingy, kind of like the small stings you can get from static electricity. However, the sensations from electro toys can feel as gentle or as intense as you want them to! Some enjoy the painful stings where others may enjoy the thrilling pulsating or throbbing. Either way, these toys are designed to be safe and enjoyable, not to give you an electric shock! The history of electro toys is as fascinating as the toys themselves. They use the same mechanisms as certain medical devices used for electrotherapy, which uses electrical signals to stimulate muscles and nerves for therapeutic purposes. In the mid-20th century, some adventurous souls started experimenting with these devices for sexual stimulation, and the rest, as they say, is history. Today, electro sex toys specifically made for sexual pleasure, come in many different shapes and sizes. From electric dildos, electric prostate massages to electric nipple clamps, and even electric chastity cages! Each type of toy offers its own unique sensations and experiences, so there’s something for everyone, whether you’re a curious beginner or an experienced e-stim enthusiast. Despite their growing popularity there are still many misconceptions about electro toys. Some people think they’re dangerous or painful, while others dismiss them as a niche fetish. But the truth is, electro toys can be a fun and exciting addition to anyone’s sex life, as long as they’re used correctly and safely.

A Step-by-Step Guide:

In the following I will provide a step-by-step guide on how beginners can use electro toys.

Step 1: Choose Your Electro Toy

Electro sex kits come with two types of outputs: monopolar and bipolar. In a monopolar output, the current flows unidirectionally between two points. This means you’ll need to attach two electrodes to your body to complete the circuit. On the other hand, a bipolar output comes with two conductive surfaces built into it, creating a self-contained circuit. The current flows between the positive and negative electrodes within the attachment itself. You’re good to use it on the skin from the get-go! I suggest starting your electrifying journey with a mono-polar kit that has electrode pads. Attach these to the skin on either side of your sensitive spots (say 2-3 inches away from the clitorism penis, or anus) and brace yourself for an extraordinary symphony of pulsations, throbs, and strokes. While some thrill-seekers might use a TENS unit or EMS machine for their electro play, we recommend choosing a kit specifically designed for this kind of electrifying adventure. After all, when it comes to sparking joy, it’s best to use tools crafted with that purpose in mind!

The Right Kind of Electro Toy

Choosing the right electro toy can be a bit overwhelming, especially if you’re new to e-stim. Here are some factors to consider:
  • Type of toy: As mentioned earlier, there are many different types of electro toys, each offering its own unique sensations. Consider the kind of sensations you’re interested in exploring. Something insertable, something that can provide sharp stings, or gentle electrodes that pulsate through a specific area?
  • Size and design: Like any adult toy, the size and design of the electro toy can greatly affect your experience. Choose a toy that you feel comfortable with and that suits your body and preferences. Be partcularly aware of this when it comes to insertable toys. The added sensations from the electrical currents may also feel more intense than your regular old dildo or butt plug. Consider a size that’s not too overwhelming for you!

Step 2: Prepare Your Toy

Before you start, make sure your toy is clean and in good working order. Most electro toys can be cleaned with mild soap and warm water, but always check the manufacturer’s instructions to be sure. Some electro toys require conductive gel to work effectively. This gel helps the electrical current flow more smoothly and can enhance the sensations. If your toy requires conductive gel, apply a thin layer to the toy and your skin before you start. Your electro toy will obviously only be able to conduct the electricity if it’s connected to a power unit or power box that provides the electricity. Make sure you’ve set your separate power unit beforehand. Make sure you have the right kind of connectors or adaptors to make your toy compatible with the power unit.

Step 3: Start Slow

When you’re ready to start, begin with the lowest setting. This will allow you to get used to the sensations and figure out what you like. As you become more comfortable, you can gradually increase the intensity. Remember, the goal is pleasure, not pain. If it feels uncomfortable or painful, turn it down or stop. It’s also a good idea to take breaks every now and then to prevent overstimulation.

Step 4: Experiment

Once you’re comfortable with the basics, don’t be afraid to experiment. Try different settings, positions, and techniques. You might find that certain settings or positions enhance the sensations, or that certain techniques add an extra level of excitement. Try using your electro toy in combination with other toys or activities. Explore different patterns on different areas of the body. The possibilities are endless, so let your imagination run wild!

Comparing the Best Electro Sex Toys at a Glance

Still not sure which electric shock sex toy is the one for you? Here’s how they measure up against each other and some suggestions if you are looking for something specific.


The two electro sex devices with the highest overall ratings are the Komodo Dildo and the Bi-Polar Electrosex Butt Plug, both of which are from one of the most popular estim brands ElectraStim. The reason I didn’t crown these as today’s test winner is that they require the purchase of an external power pack.


Electro sex toys tend to be more expensive than your average sex toy, which of course makes sense! The cheapest estim toy in the review is the Zeus Electrosex Palm Powerbox, which I would say makes a great introduction to electrosex stimulators but it’s not the highest quality. If you are on a budget, I would recommend looking at an electro sex toy that doesn’t need an external power unit as having to buy both a product and power pack can quickly add up! I would say the Kinklab Neon Wand is great value for money, as not only do you get four different glass electrodes, you can also buy more attachments, including a flogger or one that turns you into a human electrode!

Stand alone vs power unit:

If electro sex is something you enjoy regularly, you might want to consider investing in a power unit that can be used with multiple attachments, such as the ones from Estim brand ElectroStim or Mystim. If you don’t have a power unit and don’t want to buy one, I would recommend one of the stand alone estim toys in the review, such as the Kinklab Neon Wand or Obsidian Kit, Zeus Electrosex Palm Powerbox, Impulse Dual Wand, or Volt Electro Flare Plug.

Additional features:

If you want a little extra stimulation with these already highly stimulating toys, I would recommend the Impulse Dual Wand or the Volt Electro Flare Plug as they both have additional vibrating features.  

How Do Electro Sex Toys Work?

Electro sex toys can seem a little intimidating to the uninitiated. Here we will go through how they work, as well as the advantages, and any risks associated with their use.

How do they work?

How do they work? - How Do Electro Sex Toys Work?
E-stim passes low levels of electrical current through the muscles and nerve endings. This mimics the same signals your body uses to naturally get muscles to contract and relax.   Most e-stim toys use TENS power units, to send an electrical charge to conductive points on the toy. When these points come into contact with skin, a low level charge is passed through the nerve fibers. This is the same process used for physical e-stim therapy and pain relief.

What are the risks?

What are the risks? - How Do Electro Sex Toys Work?
Electric stimulation is safe for the body and has been employed for a long time in physiotherapy to build muscle strength and help people recover from injury. However, there are risks and these should be taken seriously. Electro sex toys are absolutely not suitable for people with heart conditions, pacemakers or pregnant women. They should also only be used on the specific area of body highlighted in the manufacturer’s instructions. Finally, there is some evidence that such stimulation can cause desensitization of sensitive areas over time. The validity of this concern is contested, however, if you do experience any numbness or lack of feeling, stop using the e-stim toy immediately.

Are there any benefits?

Are there any benefits? - How Do Electro Sex Toys Work?
As e-stim has traditionally been used medically as a way to strengthen muscle and recover from injury, there are arguably benefits associated with the use of electro sex toys. For example, CalExotics has designed their Impulse Intimate range to strengthen Kegel muscles and intensify orgasms. E-stim users have also reported firmer erections, and stronger sphincters. We don’t personally attest that these results are guaranteed or even likely, though evidence would suggest that it is possible.

The Science Behind Electrical Stimulation

Okay, let’s get into the nitty-gritty of why electro toys can feel like this.

The Basics of Electrical Stimulation

Our bodies naturally use electricity. Nerve impulses are essentially electrical charges that travel along the nerve fibers. These impulses cause muscles to contract and relax, which is how we move and feel sensations. Electro toys create their own electrical signals that stimulate these nerve endings, leading to unique sensations that can be incredibly pleasurable. When you touch a hot stove, for example, the heat stimulates the nerve endings in your skin, which send an electrical signal to your brain. Your brain interprets this signal as the sensation of heat, and you quickly pull your hand away. Electro toys work in a similar way, but instead of heat, they use electrical currents to stimulate the nerve endings. The unique sensations caused by electro toys can be difficult to describe, as they’re unlike anything most people have experienced before. Some people describe it as a tingling or buzzing sensation, while others compare it to the feeling of deep vibrations or even muscle contractions. The intensity and quality of these sensations can be adjusted by changing the settings on the power box, allowing you to customize your experience to your liking.

How to Use Electro Toys Safely

While the idea of using electricity for pleasure might sound a bit scary, electro toys are designed with safety in mind. They use very low voltage and current levels, much lower than anything that could cause harm. In fact, the electrical currents used by most electro toys are similar to those used by TENS units. TENS units are usually used as medical devices to relieve pain. However, like any adult toy, electro toys should be used responsibly and as directed by the manufacturer. Here are some basic safety tips to keep in mind:
  • Never use an electro toy if you have a pacemaker, other electronic medical device, or heart conditions.
  • Always start with the lowest setting, and gradually increase the intensity.
  • Avoid using electro toys above the waist or on the chest area. The electrical current could interfere with your heart’s natural electrical signals.
  • Do not use electro toys on irritated or broken skin, as this could cause further discomfort and injury.
  • Always clean your electro toys before and after use to prevent the spread of bacteria. However, most of them are not 100% waterproof, so be sure to clean them safely. Generally, avoid using electro toys near water. Those two things don’t mix well.
Common mistakes to avoid when using electro toys include using them at too high a setting, using them for too long, or using them in unsafe areas. Remember, the goal is pleasure, not pain. If it feels uncomfortable or painful, stop immediately and adjust the settings or position of the toy.

Are Electrosex Butt Plugs Safe?

When we think about an electric butt plug one of the first things we start to think about is how safe it is? What if the electric stimulation is too much for me? and you keep wondering and perhaps that thought has pushed you a bit away from the excitement of getting your own electric butt plug. But to give you more confidence, below I will tell you why an electric butt plug is safe.

Know your toy

Know your toy - Are Electrosex Butt Plugs Safe?
The first thing that you hae to do is to know your toy. The most important thing is if your electric butt plug is waterproof or not. Electric butt plug works with a connection, obviously, as we have learned through cartoons when we were kids, is never a good idea to mix an electric connection and water. This information can be found in the product description in the shop or straight on the manufacturer’s site. So before you do anything, check these “small” details.

Follow the instructions and recommendations

Follow the instructions and recommendations - Are Electrosex Butt Plugs Safe?
With any toy, in general, it is always good to follow the instructions and recommendations that can be found at least, from the manufacturer’s site or even from the product itself (manual, guide, or any other important paper) Dealing with an electric butt plug can considerably harm you if you don’t stick to the rules and recommendations.

Always make sure everything is set up in the right way

Why Should You Choose Electrastim Toys? 

Founded way back in 2001, Electrastim has received eight different awards throughout the years for its products and brand achievements. The company itself is made up of a select group of specialists (neuromuscular stimulation), making it easy to receive quality customer service and after-sales care. In addition to that, Electrastim ships worldwide (offering same-day shipping in both the UK and the US), has products for all genders and makes toys suitable for both solo & partner usage. While you could certainly choose a different brand for your estim adventures, you’ll be unlikely to find another brand that offers the same level of consistent quality and overall reliability that Electrastim does.

About Electrastim

Electrastim is one of the leading manufacturers of premium estim toys, designed specifically for sexual satisfaction. With over 20 years in the industry, there is no other name more trusted or respected.

The Birth of Electrastim

Electrastim was founded in 2001 under the name Cyrex. With a specialist background in neuromuscular stimulation, Electrastim set out with the intention of offering unique sexual experiences to both couples and individuals, regardless of gender or orientation.

Why Buy Electrastim?

Electrastim have been recognized through a host of awards as one of the best names in the estim industry. All their devices are designed to give the user the most satisfying sexual experience possible. They also all use the same 2mm pin connections, meaning you don’t have to worry about compatibility or purchasing extra cables. Finally, Electrastim offers an extended 3 year manufacturer’s warranty when you register the device with them after purchase. A testament to the confidence they have in the lasting quality of their devices.

How Does Estim Work?

Estim is based on technology that has long been employed in the medical field to considerable success. Here is an overview of how it works:

The Technology

Estim devices are based upon the same technology that has been used in physiotherapy for decades. TENS devices pass a low-level current through the muscles for therapeutic and pain-relief purposes.

The Effect

Passing a low current through the muscle causes it to contract. This is the same process your own body follows to send electrical impulses to different areas. The muscles contract during climax and an estim device imitates this reaction. This ‘fools’ the body into orgasming sooner and more intensely. It can also lead to multiple orgasms, particularly in males, as orgasming in this manner does not need to include ejaculation.

Is Estim Safe?

Estim is perfectly safe when practiced carefully and appropriately. Here are a few big guidelines to follow when playing safely. Make sure to always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions though before using any new estim device.

At-risk Groups

Certain groups should not use an estim device under any circumstance. If you are pregnant, have a heart condition or use a pacemaker an estim toy should not be used. Always refer to the manufacturer’s instructions and seek professional medical guidance if unsure.

Where to Use Safely

Most estim devices are unsuitable for use on or above the chest area due to the close proximity to the heart. Never use estim for nipple play unless expressly deemed suitable by the manufacturer. Estim devices should also never be used around water, such as in the bath or shower.

Licensed Products Only

It is vitally important that you only use toys from recognized and licensed manufacturers such as ElectraStim or Mystim. Never try to create your own DIY toys as the risk of serious injury is greatly increased when electricity is involved.

How to use electro sex toys

Electro sex toys represent a whole new realm of life-changing stimulation. However, there are a few extra precautions that need to be taken in order to use these toys safely and effectively. Below are some of our top tips for practicing e-stim in the best way.

Check the manufacturer guidelines

Check the manufacturer guidelines

Many electro sex toys are designed to only be used in a specific way or on a certain area of the body. E-stim is also only safe for certain people, for example you should never use an e-stim toy if you have a heart condition or are pregnant. Before you do anything, familiarize yourself with the manufacturer’s guidelines to ensure you are playing safely.

Prepare the toy

Prepare the toy

As with most toys, you should use a quality water-based lubricant. You can also apply a conductive gel to get the most out of your electro sex toys. Before turning the device on, check the toy and any connecting wires for condition. If there is any wear and tear, particularly to the cables or power pack, do not proceed. Finally, if you are still inexperienced with e-stim, we recommend trying the toy out in your hand first to get a sense of intensity and how it is going to feel.

Experiment and enjoy

Experiment and enjoy

It is likely going to take some time before you find the right combination of settings and placement for you. Relax, experiment, and most importantly, have fun! Play with the level of intensity, regularity of shocks, and placement of conductive points. It may feel a little uncomfortable at first as you grow accustomed to the sensation. However, if it ever becomes painful, stop immediately and ensure you are using e-stim safely.

How to clean electro sex toys

Extra care must be taken when washing electro sex toys as they are typically not waterproof (or at least the e-stim aspect is unsuitable for use around water). If your toy uses an external power pack, this should be nowhere near the cleaning process. If it uses batteries we recommend removing these before washing. A cloth, warm water, and toy cleaner should be used to wash the applicable areas, taking care to avoid the electrical components. Always refer to the manufacturer's specific instructions to be safe.


Many electro sex toys do not come with their own power source built-in. These toys require an external power pack. ElectraStim, Kinklab, and Mystim accessories typically require a compatible pack. Make sure to check whether you're new toy is ready to use straight out of the box or if you need an additional power source.

Electric stimulation involves the use of electricity, passed from the device to the user, for sexual gratification.

e-stim is an abbreviation of electric stimulation and incorporates any device or method that uses electricity as a mode of arousal.

Unlike vibrating toys, estim devices penetrate deep into the muscles it comes into contact with. The electric charge imitates the natural pulses and signals your body uses to cause muscles to contract. E-stimulation causes muscles to contract and relax in just the same way they would during an orgasm.

Vibrations externally stimulate sensitive areas through movement and contact. e-stimulation directly targets nerve-endings with an electrical current, emulating the natural bodily functions of passing a charge through muscles to make them contract. This is the same process your body goes through while orgasming.

Certified electro sex toys have been designed and tested to be safe for human use. However, there is a long list of people who should not use these types of toys, for example, if you are pregnant or have a heart condition. Many electro sex toys are also only suitable for use on specific areas of the body. Consult the manufacturer's guidelines closely before using any toy and if unsure, we recommend erring on the side of caution.

TENS is an abbreviation of the term Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation. Why abbreviate when the original name is so catchy right? It is the process of stimulating the nerves with low voltage electrical currents for therapeutic and pain relief purposes. It is also the same technology that is used in estim sex devices.

No. We strongly recommend not attempting any form of DIY when it comes to electro sex toys. Commercial e-stim products go through rigorous health and safety protocols. The risks of permanent and serious damage from DIY toys is high.

Conductive gel is applied to the metal contacts of an estim device in order to increase conductivity and enhance sensations. It is not a replacement for lube.

Sounding is the process of stimulating the urethra via the use of a sounding rod. This rod is inserted internally to target the urethra. This form of play is most commonly used with penises, though it can also be used with vaginas.

There are several manufacturers of estim devices though Electrastim is certainly one of the best. Another great company is 'Mystim'. Check out our round-up of the best Mystim products for more details.

What are Electro Sex Toys?

Sometimes manual stimulation just won't do, and you need something a little more electric to put a buzz in your step! Electro sex toys are a wide range of devices that use electricity as a means of stimulation. Unlike traditional vibrations, e-stim mimics the electro currents that naturally pass through your nerves and muscles, causing them to contract. This is intended to 'trick' your body into orgasming sooner and more intensely. And we're happy to confirm that more often than not that's exactly what they do! Electro sex toys really are incredible! What is E-stim/Estim? Estim, otherwise known as electric stimulation, is the use of an electrical current for sexual gratification. However, Estim is also a specific brand of electrostim products! Most (but not all) of their products don’t have an internal power source, instead relying on an E-Stim power box for current. Fortunately, the power box will work with nearly all of their toys, meaning you won’t need to purchase multiple boxes, only multiple attachments. Unlike traditional vibrating toys, an electrical charge causes the muscles to contract in just the same way they would during an orgasm, prompting the body to climax faster and more intensely.
