I haven't tried the gel yet, but I don't have paraben allergies so I could. I am generally wet enough on my own---but, okay, thoroughness! I will try it.

I ... yeah, I mentally stimulate myself with just the normal vibrations on, and get ready to have an orgasm mentally before flipping on the e-stim.

I'm excited to hear how the gel is. I'll be so sad if it's awesome and I can't use it. It reminds me of the ultrasound gel they used on me when I was pregnant and had to get the internal ultrasounds. That stuff burned like crazy! I'm not getting near that gel. I bet the paraben percentage is high on it.

I don't know that I know how to mentally prepare for orgasm. I generally just let nature do it's thing. If I think too much about things I actually can't orgasm. I'll think myself right out of it. I have to turn my brain as off as possible to orgasm.

I always use the gel. But when I remove Intensity, there is no gel left. The rest of the insertable part is wet, but the electrodes are completely dry.

From what I gather, electrode gel is supposed to help the e-stim pass through the skin to the tissues below, rather than concentrating on the surface of the skin. It's supposed to make it feel better and less prickly.

I've noticed that it doesn't feel like orgasm but almost every time I remove it, it's wet and dripping with watery liquid and there's a puddle of odorless liquid under me. Female ejaculate? I'm not aware of a sensation of ejaculating or the build-up sensation that happens with G-spot stimulation. So maybe it is triggering something similar to orgasm. Too bad it doesn't feel like a full on orgasm.

I too am convinced that if I use it every night - and I make sure to do that - that eventually I'll be able to crush beer cans with my powerful PC muscles.

Also, I read that your hands can't tolerate as much e-stim as you can handle inside - just the opposite of what you would expect.

Piece by piece I'm writing my review in this forum.

Have you ever used it without the gel to see what the difference is in sensation? I'm super curious.

Mine doesn't really feel prickly without it unless I'm on the lower settings. At the first or second setting, it does feel kind of prickly. At the higher settings it feels more like a wave.

I notice there is watery liquid on the Intensity, but not under me. Though I never get a puddle under me because I just don't ever produce that much fluid. I do think it triggers something very similar to an orgasm physically. I wish it felt more like a full on orgasm, too.

Ha! I want to crush beer cans with my PC muscles as well! Perhaps a morning and evening session is in order.

That's so strange. I swear when I put it on my hand I almost didn't put it inside of me it hurt so bad. It shocks me on my hand at the second setting but I can use it all the way turned up internally. Strange!

Hehe, I know, right?

The e-stim gel didn't really make a difference for me when I tried it, though it might have squeegeed off when I inserted it. ? More experimentation, I suppose.

I don't have ejaculate or the g-spot orgasm feeling... it's like the thrusting vaginal orgasm sensation for me.


Also, I hadn't told my partner about the Intensity (for the sake of experiment), and since we didn't have sex for a few days after I first got it because I was traveling, I continued the trend and we just had oral / anal / outercourse til today. Today when we had PIV again he actually exclaimed "You feel so TIGHT today" twice, and "You feel so AMAZING"... and those really aren't run-of-the-mill compliments he makes during sex.

So I'm'a consider it at least an anecdotal success.



I do also notice, and maybe it's just as I'm becoming accustomed to it, but when I have to empty my bladder this week it seems much more immediate. I don't know how that trend will continue.

I'll try it without electrogel tonight. It might not be that different. And I don't know how long the electrogel lasts before it wears off either, so it could be that most of my Intensity time has been without gel. I don't know.

Bizarre! The 10th setting on my video review really was jolting my hand... but internally I just can't get past setting 6.

One and Two I don't feel at all, three is just a little twitch (very directional, straight down between my cheeks) and then four and five are lovely pleasurable wonderful waves. And then 6 is zappy (both with and without gel so far).

Yes. It's good to be able to share the experience when the product is so different.

I hate thick lubes/gels for that reason. They always come off before you get them in...

Okay, that's awesome! I haven't had PIV sex since using it, but I've only gotten the chance to use it once so I doubt there will be any difference yet. I'm going to make a point to use this at least every other day and try for once a day. That's a success for sure!

The bladder thing is a bit strange. With my vaginal balls and PC exercises, I can actually hold my bladder longer than before and it's less immediate. I hope using the Intensity doesn't back track that!

I can't feel one and two either. I haven't gone beyond seven, which feels VERY strong. But I'm tempted to forge on to higher settings to see if a full-on orgasm results. I'm just too chicken.

Tuesday - It may be wearing off so it's probably only different for maybe a minute or two. I can't wait to hear.

Antipova - Dangit, I read the instructions wrong. I thought there were only five settings so that's the number of times I pressed the button. So I've only gotten to five. LOL Now I have to try to go past that to see how high I can get before it gets too jolt-y. Four and five have been the best so far. I don't feel one at all but I do feel two a little bit. It mostly feels prickly to me. Three and four are prickly but not as much as two. Five is where I get the wave sensation the strongest.

I'm glad we have multiple people in on this as well!

I couldn't actually tell you which direction it's progressing in... just that I noticed it. I'm usually ultra-well-hydrated in general.

Mine's in the system, freshly re-submitted (they let me add a note about what my partner thought, and the ergonomics of the base... looks kinda funky, but you can hold it in place very naturally with either your hand or your heel!)

Just tried it without the gel. It was definitely zappier than with gel. I would look into whether you can find some paraben-free electrogel.

After I removed it, applied electrogel and re-inserted it, it felt much better. Although ... I inserted it with electrogel then removed it right away, the gel had mostly squeegeed off. So maybe the effect is psychosomatic. I'm not sure.

Watching this conversation is fun. One question though, for all of you guys that have it. Is it worth the 200 something dollars? In terms of both PC strengthening and pleasure?

In what other internet forum does the word "squeegeed" come up more often than Eden?

Anyway, Leviathan, I think yes. For me, at least.

I'd suggest listening to everyone else's opinion as well... but I would buy this again if something happened to it. I haven't touched another toy since I've gotten it. I'm sure I'll broaden the scope again soon... but I *never* have this much focus, I'm usually using a few different dildos each session!



Also, review's up!

I am following this thread with rapt attention. And now... off to read your review!!

I really want paraben free gel now! I don't find it overly zappy, but I would like it to zap me a little less on the lower levels.

Leviathan - So far, I'm not sure. I haven't used it enough to say as of now. I'm sill in testing. I'm thinking if it tones my PC muscles like I think it will, it will be worth it. It seems like a very effective work out. Like, I can feel the clenching going on unlike anything I've felt with vaginal balls or anything I can do on my own. For PC purposes, I'm thinking possibly well worth the money.

Orgasm wise, I haven't experience a full on mind and body orgasm with it. Just the sensation of a physical orgasm but without the whole body sensation. Just the clenching and wave feeling of an orgasm. It's a very strange feeling! So for orgasm purposes, so far probably not worth the money.

If it tones my PC muscles over the next few tests like I think it will, I'll call it a win even if I don't get a full body orgasm. If it produces better results than I normally get with vaginal balls and my regular Kegels, I'll say it's worth the money.


Side note for everyone: Mine is crazy loud with the attachment on. Anyone else notice this? It's super distracting. I prefer vibrations, but end up just turning them off because it's too loud. Luckily, the electostim is exciting enough to keep my attention without them.

Yeah, the clit arm is really loud. On the first level, it's better (as in, still loud, but at least it's not distracting) if I mash it up against my body, but on 2-5 it's distractingly loud no matter what. The vibrations on 2-5 are also way too strong for my clit, so I just keep them on level one, and if there are people in the house, I have the radio on.

I tried with no vibrations a few times (just because vibrations aren't usually very important for me), and then the e-stim felt just kind of ... clinical, like Tuesday said, just your kegels working and none of the rest of my body was excited.

Maybe you should turn your vibrations off (hold the whole thing upsidedown so the arm is out of the way, but the electrodes are still in the same places) and add Mimi to the mix?

Ah ha! Maybe that's why I'm not having the response that you've had. Intensity's vibrations are too weak for me so I use it with the vibrator off. The batteries will certainly last longer that way anyway. And it does feel clinical. I use a separate vibrator on my clitoris - or sometimes I just do e-stim only for the kegel workout. I'll have to try vibrations first, then e-stim. Whatever it takes to have the experience you have with it, I'm open to try.

This thread is super interesting. The electrostim bit sounds more appealing than I thought it would, but I wish it wasn't a dual. Clit vibe attachments never do much for me and mostly just get in my way, and I really can't justify spending the money on something I'm pretty positive will have an annoying aspect for me from the start. If Jopen comes out with an internal-only version of the Intensity, I'll be all over it.

Before I read this I decided to try without the attachment on and with my Spirit. Since I hadn't read Antipova's suggestion, stupid me just tried manually moving the clit arm out of the way. That didn't work so well! It kept bouncing back and hitting my Spirit (which I picked since it's so tiny) out of the way. How frustrating! However, without the noise and with stronger vibrations, I did seem to get closer to an actual orgasm. So I think next time I'll turn it upside down and pull out the big guns (Mimi) and see where that goes.

I also got to level nine. I would have gotten to ten but someone rang my doorbell. Holy hell is it intense! I can see the jump in my tummy. It cramped up my legs a little as well. So weird. It felt really good though, it was just very strong and jolted me like mad. It felt like the best workout of all the levels thus far.
