Zap Zap Zap (Taint It Great?)

A marriage of electro-sex and prostate massage - perfectly designed to target electricity to the taint (or clit) when used on a Nexus massager.
Published:
Pros:
A unique product/upgrade that allows fabulous e-stim to occur.

extremely useful review
This is a specialized product that marries two very specific types of toys - a prostate massager (only those from the Nexus range that feature a ball bearing) and a e-stim power box, such as the Nexus iStim. It is very difficult to divorce the properties of this specific product from the e-stim and prostate massage that it marries - needless to say, the enjoyment of this product assumes that a Nexus massager that is liked is in use, and also that the user likes the way that electrosex feels. This is a product for a someone who already owns an e-stim unit and a Nexus prostate massager and who knows that they enjoy both types of stimulation. Beginners to e-stim should look at the Nexus iStim instead (because it comes with these attachments included) or look into acquiring a TENS unit to play around with before picking up these attachments.

The Nexus iStim attachments are made of some sort of conductive composite - a hard plastic that conducts electricity. They fit into the ball bearing cavity on the taint massage arm of certain Nexus brand prostate massagers - namely the Glide, Neo, Titus, Excel and Vibro. I had an Excel to use with my partner, and found that the attachment fit snugly into the ball bearing cavity, and snapped around the taint arm for a close fit to the contours of the massager. When in place, the hole in the Nexus that allows for removal of the ball bearing becomes the port through which an e-stim lead wire may attach. The wire style that fits into the 'electrified Nexus' is a standard pin that is used in the world of TENS units to attach to the most common style of electrode pads. There are subtleties to getting a really good fit with a TENS wire with a pin end, but in general it will be easy to attach any e-stim unit with the correct set of wires to this accessory - the Nexus iStim will most assuredly work, as will a TENS unit procured through medical avenues (they are used in physical therapy and also for pain management; sometimes insurance covers a portion of the purchase).

Playing with e-stim requires a little bit of thinking - not much, I promise, but a little. In order to get stimulation, a circuit must be created that includes a portion of a body. Connecting to an electrified Nexus massager sets up the first part of the circuit, but an additional electrode is needed attached to the other pin on the TENS wire. This can be a sticky electrode pad, or another e-stim specific toy. Additionally, it's really fun to think outside the box and use a bit of electrical tape to tape the second pin to a metal toy like a njoy Pure Wand, turning your pure wand into the second half of your circuit. Whatever you end up doing, remember to place the pad/attachment/toy on an area that is *fun*; preferably somewhere close to the Nexus massager. If you choose well, the whole region will start to feel electrified and alive, heightening any non e-stim play that might also be happening.

Now one might think that because this attachment is for a prostate massager, that this is a very male bodied specific toy. While it is true that prostate owners will have a big added oomph when using this toy, the Nexus iStim attachment simply allows for precise positioning of a taint massaging electrode when used anally, and as a clit massaging electrode when the Nexus massager is used vaginally. It is much more precise, effective and "on target" than a pad ever gets in such restricted and often damp territory. As such, the Nexus iStim attachment (plus required Nexus massager) is highly recommended for anyone who likes e-stim and wishes to integrate targeted taint or clit stimulation into e-stim play.

TENS stimulation plays with the nerves close to the surface of your skin, but it is still a playing with an electrical circuit that involves your body. Use common sense and don't direct the circuit across your chest cavity. For a quick and dirty rule of thumb, keep it to the fun bits below the waist.

    This almost sounds dangerous - are there any warnings about e-stim?

    Sound kinda intriguing, I just don't know if it is for me.

    Great review.

    Wow, I'd never heard of this before! I'm glad I read this review. Is it painful to create a circuit on your body like that? I might be interested if it is not painful.
    Great review!

    Thanks all, glad it was enjoyed. In general, I tried to avoid discussing the ins and outs of e-stim as I was trying to review the product itself (if that makes sense!) Check out Sleeping Dreamer's review of the iStim for a once over of that toy to get an idea of how an e-stim unit works and can be played with.

    @B8trDude e-stim is essentially the use of a TENS (Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation) machine, and there's loads of info available out there about their use and safety. They are of routine use in physical therapy. If you're worried yet interested, you should read a bit about TENS units and make the call for yourself

    @SelectiveSensualist Because most e-stim units are hijacked medical TENS units, they're not optimized for sexy times. You can get some optimized for sexy times(erostek units), but they are very very pricey. So while yes it is possible to make it hurt (note: to some, this can be good) the intensity ranges of e-stim units always go from low to high, so there's room to play without pain being a factor.

    @Red - Actually, I'm familiar with TENS units - I just can't imagine attaching it to the locations that this (and other) sex toy is designed for.

    Interesting. I've been reading about TENS units. We used to use them in Maternity and Post Surg units for post surgical pain, so it is completely possible for them to be used without any direct pain, actually for the reduction of pain via counter stimulation.

    With the care with which the doctors who allowed and choose which patients use TENS units and the very few number of doctors who were actually educated in their use (outside of PT) I don't know as much about it as I would like.

    Interesting stuff.
