ElectraStim Flick EM60-E Review
I was contacted by Hella at ElectraStim and asked whether I’d like to try out a few of their products, in exchange for a fair, honest and unbiased review. I’m not the world’s biggest fan of electrosex, but only because I choose other styles of sexual stimulation. I wanted to branch out and finally get more experience of electro sex and electric stimulation for sensual pleasure, so I said yes.
Soon after the email correspondence, the ElectraStim EM60 Flick, ElectraStim Paddle and some ElectraStim conductive gel turned up, in discreet packaging and safely packed. The items were all presented well, the main EM60 Flick arriving in a case with all the accessories as well as full instructions.
There’s a lot to the main Flick unit, so I’ll write it up as articulately as I’m able.
First off, you do not get the ElectraStim Conductive Gel with the EM-60 Flick or the Paddle, this is an add-on purchase and you WILL NEED it. So buy some. Do not use electrosex equipment without also using Conductive Gel, seriously.
In the box you get:
- The ElectraStim EM60 Flick unit/control
- Output lead (to get the power to whichever electrosex piece of equipment you’re using)
- USB charging lead
- 4 x self adhesive electro pads
- Black ElectraStim drawstring storage pouch
- Full instructions
You can use the ElectraStim EM60 Flick in so many different ways. It’s fun to use for couples sex, to give that very real shock factor to sex, or on your own to bring a whole new dimension to masturbation. Used in combination with the paddle (or other accessories available from ElectraStim) you can even ramp up the kinky volume of fetish and BDSM sessions… it doesn’t have to be just for the extremists, the levels range from an incredibly mild, barely sensed tingle on the skin to maximum shock.
It looks like you get a lot of confusing stuff when you first open up the box but a quick read through of the pamphlet and it’s clear to see how you put it together. Firstly, the main control unit is powered by charging it up. Connect the USB lead to the base of it and plug it into any USB port or a USB to mains adaptor. I left mine overnight as rechargeable products usually take about 6-8 hours to fully charge. There’s an LED to let you know it’s charging up.
Once you have a charged up unit, you can begin. Take the output cable (black, split into two ends) and connect one end into the top of the main control unit. Then you will have two jackpins on the other end. These connect to whichever electro sex piece of equipment you want to use. It will need to be a 2mm pin compatible item, if you have something that has a 4mm port then you can buy an adaptor from ElectraStim.
The most basic piece of equipment to get that electrifying sensation to your flesh is via electrode pads. There are 4 included in the pack. They are incredibly sticky, which is a good thing and keeps them flush against your skin no matter what. After use, if you peel them from skin carefully enough, you can place them back on to the plastic backings they arrived on and reuse them a good few times before having to dispose of them and buy new ones.
If you’re using the unit for couples foreplay and sex you can attach one pad to the inner thigh of each person, or wherever you wish. Best off not anywhere near the heart though, and I’ve avoided areas like directly over my clit. I don’t fancy killing off the nerve endings there accidentally!
For couples sex and masturbation, the very tops of the inner thigh felt amazing.
To turn on, press the power button on the controller. It starts in off mode, so don’t worry – you’re not going to get an immediate jolt! It’s very safe. You can then press the intensity up button (+) to raise the stimulation to a level you’re comfortable with. This level is indicated by the green LEDs behind the arc of ‘levels’ on the control fascia. There are 12 areas which can become highlighted, but each green LED lit ‘area’ has a lower and upper level. So there are 24 intensity levels altogether. Certain to be a level to please everyone.
That’s not all: press the middle button (with the arrows on) and you discover 7 different pattern settings to the pulsing, electro stimulation.
The 7 settings/modes are:
- Continuous electro stimulation
- Oscillating wave
- Escalating Wave
- Slow Pulse with long dashes of stimulation
- Slow pulse followed by fast pulse, and repeat
- Ascending pulse followed by a long blast
- Escalating Pulse
As well as being able to scroll through the 7 modes, you can press and hold the ‘mode selector’ button for three seconds, where a little light will tell you that you’ve switched to the ‘Flick’ mode. This means you can flick or constantly shake the controller and that movement is mirrored by the electro pulses coming from the unit to the pads, or whichever electro piece of equipment you’re using with the main control unit.
The electro stimulation feels so relaxing on the first couple of levels, almost like a deep massage. On the higher levels (I can only get mid way through the range!) it’s definitely a strong current but still safe and enjoyable. I will definitely be adding electro stimulation to my sexy times in future, whether solo or shared! Being pulsed while you’re having an orgasm is a unique, unforgettable experience.
In summary this is a fantastic item either for a first foray into electro sex or for those looking for an innovative device combining all expected features as well as sensational, motion operated technology. I can’t fault it. There are a variety of modes as well as levels to suit all from beginners to veterans, and the kit comes with all the accessories you need – apart from the gel which you need to purchase separately.
