Electro-Stimulation Sex Toys
takes the TENs unit that physicians, chiropractors, and physical therapists have used for many
years and with some modification, applies that to the exquisite nerve-endings
of our erogenous areas.

an independent review of two new products: the Silicone Noir probes and the SensaVox
Stimulator/Power Box. I enlisted my loyal cadre of testers, three men and
three women, and we went into action.
The SensaVox (pictured above) was
a source of pleasure for all my testers. For male bodies, it can be used with
penis bands and prostate stimulators. Each man tried the box with the
penis rings, anal probe and sticky electrodes. Each woman used both probes and
Sensavox. Here’s what they loved:
- The box has a wide variety of pulse patterns and
- It has several new features like the Boost
button which gives an extra burst of energy.
- There are
two channels so you can have one set of electrodes stimulating one location and
a second set stimulating another. For example, an anal probe can be plugged
into one channel while two electrodes can be attached to send pulses through
the penis and perineum.
The SensaVox has a much greater range than the previously
reviewed EM60. It begins with very gentle stimulation but goes up from there
slowly until it enters the stratosphere. Even at its highest intense settings,
it’s still a pleasurable kind of pulse form and pattern.
unobtrusive holes for the small pin plugs, they are gentle and soft to the touch, perfect for the sensitive skin of the vulva or anus. The Aura Multi-Probe felt comfortable

pleasure. Reinserting with the leads perpendicular to the g-spot location
afforded more sensation for the female-bodied testers.

captured in an upper sphere of black silicone. There is a short neck and at the
other end another enveloping sphere with another ball. The second ball is loose
inside and it reacts to the pulses and patterns from the stimulator. With the moving balls providing vibrations, each of the women reported the absolute
pleasure of this probe.

designed with pleasure in mind!

plug into the Stimulator/Power box. This connector has advantages over the less
expensive but often used 3.5mm plug.

the midst of passion, simpler than banana plugs or snap connectors. Sticky
electrodes are less expensive if they come with pin plug connectors.

option in your sex life. E-stim should be as ubiquitous as the vibrator. It
provides a level of sexual stimulation that is hard to match in a simpler sex
toy. While the cost of entry can be daunting, ElectraStim and others
provide an entry level power unit for a reasonable price. The probes, penis
bands, and sticky electrodes are comparable to other dildo prices. If you have a little income to spare, you probably can’t do better than the SensaVox. But, if you need to watch the finances more closely, the EM-80 dual-channel or the EM-60 are also good options.
