ElectraStim Flick EM-60E Review
By Carnal Queen.
We’re not new to electro-sex, but ElectraStim products have been high on our list of must-try’s for a very long time. They’re the brand that immediately springs to mind, a leader in their field, so I wanted to experience what they had to offer, first hand.
After meeting up and chatting with the ever so lovely Hella Walkington at the ETO show in June, my need for ElectraStim grew stronger. We had a demonstration and played with the products, and it really did wet my appetite. It’s bizarre, you’d think electro-stimulation would feel the same, no matter what device it came from, but no, even though we have the Jimmyjane Hello Touch X and a Kinklab Neon Wand, ElectraStim felt deliciously different, and I couldn’t wait to introduce it into our bedroom play sessions.
I understand that to some people, the idea of using electro-sex toys is overwhelming, and can be a daunting thought. I really do want to dispel the myth that electro-stimulation = pain, because whilst it can, it really doesn’t have to, it’s totally up to the user. You can enjoy really erotic tickles and tingles, or go up to hardcore zapping, the choice is entirely yours!
ElectraStim very kindly offered to send me some products for free, in exchange for honest and unbiased reviews, and of course I jumped at the opportunity, we were very excited and only too happy to give them a go! So let me start by telling you about the ElectraStim Flick EM60-E Electro Stimulation Pack …
The EM60-E is a fully UK assembled, USB rechargeable, single channel stimulator, which can power either one bi-polar electrode or two uni-polar electrodes. Inside the box you will find:
The EM60-E Flick unit
A charging cable
A connecting wire with 2mm pin connectors
4 uni-polar Electrapads
The unit needs charging fully before use, and takes about 3 hours, which will give you up to six hours of spine tingling play. As I said previously, this is a single channel unit, which is perfect for beginners, but also offers a lot of versatility to any user. I was a bit confused over the differences in models to begin with, but it’s actually really simple – If you had a dual channel stimulator, it would mean your unit could power and control twice as many electrodes as a single channel unit, so you would be able to control a couple of different toys independently via the one device. Alternatively, some toys, such as the ElectraStim Silicone Noir Sirius Electro Prostate Massager, need a dual channel unit to power the toy to it’s full capacity. ElectraStim do have a lot of guides and info on their website if you do need any help or advice on their products, which is brilliant! Anyway, back to the Flick EM60-E!
Why is it called ‘Flick’ you say? Well, the Flick unit has a really cool feature which allows you to control the electro-stimulation with your wrist movement. Imagine you’re holding an invisible whip in your hand, whenever you flick your wrist to crack the whip, the wearer/user of the attached electrode feels a jolt of power, relative to the speed and strength with which you flicked your wrist – How neat is that?!
I love the wide range of intensity levels the Flick EM60-E offers you. There are 7 programmed stimulation patterns, with 24 levels of intensity, literally something for everybody! The interface is clear and straightforward to understand, with just 4 easy to press buttons; A power button, a mode button which changes the pattern with quick presses, and allows you to enter ‘Flick’ mode with a 3 second press, and up and down buttons which adjust the intensity of the stimulation. A little amber light indicates the type of pattern the user is experiencing by pulsing along with the stimulation, the strength bar lights up to show the level you’re at, and a ‘Flick’ light gauge indicates the strength of the power spike as you ‘Flick’. There’s also a low battery indicator, a mini USB port at the bottom for charging, and a port at the top for the connecting wire … and that’s it, it’s that simple!
The self adhesive pads are fantastic, and can be used in a variety of ways. ElectraStim can only be used below the waist, so the pads can be stuck literally ANYWHERE on the lower body. If you make sure you put the pads on clean, dry skin, and always put them straight back on the plastic backing when you’ve finished with them, they’ll last 6-10 uses. They’re pre-coated with a long lasting conductive gel, so you always get to feel those delicious tingles.
Now, you might wish you’d paid more attention in Physics class at school, but basically you either wear two pads yourself, ensuring it’s only you in your circuit, so only you will feel the electro-stimulation, or you can choose to wear one pad yourself and give the other to your partner, so you have to make contact with each other in order to complete the circuit and feel any sensation. I love this, it’s great fun! Not only do you feel the tingles in the area of the pad (we opted for our thighs) but you also feel it where your bodies make contact. On the lowest settings we found this barely noticeable, but as you work up the levels, you will find one that will make you purr! I like this mid-way, but we have to remember to keep the physical contact (that’s not too much of a hardship though!) because when you part and reconnect, it can feel very zappy, especially if you kiss! Fits of giggles always ensue when this happens, it can be quite bloody sharp! I’ve always said that his kisses electrify me, but I didn’t think I’d ever mean it literally …
I really enjoy using the pads and Flick unit on CK, it’s very satisfying pushing his boundaries (consensually of course) and watching him go from tingly bliss to squirming around begging for me to let up on him. With the pads on his cock, he finds the lowest levels totally undetectable, but finds around level 14-16 the most enjoyable. Constant stimulation seems to be less enjoyable in every way we’ve experimented, the patterns just seem to work so much better. I think when on constant, you become very used to the sensations very quickly, which almost spoils it a little. The patterns keep you on your toes and you never get bored, or too used to the feelings from it.
A pad on each buttock is freakin awesome! I never imagined it could feel like being spanked, but bizarrely it really kind of does! If you like being spanked, but aren’t a fan of being sore for prolonged periods afterwards (which for some is the best part!), then I think you’ll love this. With the ‘Flick’ ability, you can whip an ass with invisible awesomeness, and it can really hurt if you flick with force, and although it leaves you stinging, it doesn’t last too long, because obviously you’ve not suffered any physical impact. Used on a pattern setting, it’s pretty cool to watch ass cheeks dance around involuntarily on the higher settings, it make me very happy indeed
Please don’t fear ElectraStim, instead, embrace it! It can be so gentle and sensuous, soft tingles caressing your skin, through the prickly sensations, right up to downright painful! I certainly can’t take it all the way to the top level yet, neither can CK. You really are in total control at all times, your wish is the Flick EM60-E’s command! I love that every time we get this piece of kit out, our experiences are so very different, it never feels exactly the same as the last time, and pain thresholds vary from day to day for most people. You’ll never get bored with ElectraStim!
