real newbie here

Post by Streak »

Hi to one and all, I am a real newbie when it comes to e stim, I have only just began my journey, but so far it is fantastic.
I only have two tens machines, but have been playing with all kinds of cutting down pads, attaching them on all sensitive areas, cock shaft, corona, balls, pubis, and also directly onto my anus, no hospitilisation as yet,lol.
A firm believer in adaptation and making my own ways of getting the pulses in the right places.

If anyone can tell me the big difference between a tens unit and an e stim unit, I would appreciate it, I am assuming an e stim unit may have different strength outputs and more varying wave formations, sorry if some of my terminology is incorrect.

I only have two tens machines so far, I wouldn't mind getting a proper e stim unit but funds are tight alas, does anyone sell used ones on if they have upgraded at all ?

That question was asked in a forum recently:
viewtopic.php?f=11&t=10907
Stimaddict posted several generally good links; these deeper links in particular discuss the topic:
https://www.reddit.com/r/estim/wiki/ind ... ns_and_ems
https://e-stim.tips/question.php?ref=25


Occasionally one will show up on ebay, like this ET232: https://www.ebay.com/itm/184875069522
Or in the Personals forum here

[EDIT} Added another link.
And when the wombat comes, he will find me gone.

Hi Streak.

You'd do well to explore those links posted above if you have the time. If you're wanting a really brief and basic answer to your question, I think most folks here would agree that:

1) A TENS unit is designed to deal with pain by causing tingling, leading to numbness. A made-for-play e-stim unit is designed to stimulate the nerves for sexual pleasure, without numbing them.
2) The sensations caused by a TENS machine can be harsh and prickly. The sensations produced by a made-for-play unit can range from a gentle buzz to a sharp jolt and everything in between.
3) The output from a TENS unit may not go high enough to produce orgasm, but a made-for-play unit can produce way more power than you need.
4) The routines in a TENS unit are limited in variety. A good made-for-play unit will come with a lot of different routines built in, and if it can accept audio input the possibilities are endless.

I should point out that this is gleaned not from personal experience of a TENS unit, but from what I have read in countless posts on the subject over the years. I know a number of e-stimmers have come to the hobby after playing around with TENS machines which were originally purchased/supplied for pain management purposes. However, those people have normally gone on to proper made-for-play units. It wouldn't surprise me if you were to follow that same path.

If finance is tight, then see if you can get a secondhand, quality unit by E-Stim Systems or Erostek. This is one of those areas of life where you can waste a lot of money working your way through cheaper devices and being dissatisfied, when it would actually have been more cost effective to go in with a mid- to high-spec unit in the first place. There are other good models out there (maybe Sensavox?), but avoid units that are just rebranded TENS units at a silly bumped-up price, for all the reasons I've listed above.

TENS devices are ok as an introduction to estim but their limitations mean you are missing out on the best that stimming has to offer. You really should be working your way up to a proper, made-for-play sexual stimbox and personally I'd recommend my favourite box, the 2B. The inbuilt modes/programs/routines are only the beginning of what the 2B can do for you. The real prize comes in the form of stereo audio stimfiles which open up a whole new world of unlimited sexual pleasure - once you've been down that road there is no turning back. They range from short routines to be played on a loop, a bit like the 2B's modes, to long 4-hour sexual 'stimphonies' - and everything in-between.

If a TENS is a bicycle then the 2B is a Ferrari! Your cock will love it :D
