Fine Line Between Pain and Pleasure

It took a lot of trial and error (and a few screams) with this one. I don't like that it doesn't have an actual OFF button -- you just have to turn it down until it goes off. Some of the times when it was turned up to a too intense level, my husband just had to pull the plug from the device as a quick shut off solution.

With that said, I want to point out that I am not at all disappointed in this product. It has been (and I'm sure it will continue to be) very fun.
no sticky residue
does not irritate skin
many intensity and speed levels
lack of instructions
no OFF button
Rating by reviewer:
extremely useful review


Fetish Fantasy Series Shock Therapy is a small handheld, battery operated device. From this device, wires attach to sticky pads that can be placed on the skin. With the unit, there are several modes and levels of intensity and speed. These levels range from a very mild and therapeutic massage, to an intense and painful jolt -- with many levels between. Due to the many levels of intensity, this item would work well for both beginners and more advanced users. It can also be used with a partner, or by yourself.

Design / Craftsmanship / Material / Size / Fit

The shape and size of the handheld unit is ideal. It is comfortable to hold and use. Also, I was really impressed with the sticky pads. I have a lot of issues with skin sensitivities, and I can't use any sort of products with adhesives (this includes medical tape, band-aids, etc) without my skin breaking out and peeling off. I was kind of nervous when this product arrived for review, because that is not something I actually considered when ordering. The pads are made of a soft, squishy, gel-like material that sticks to my skin, but it doesn't use a sticky adhesive. It has caused my skin ZERO issues. The pads are reusable, and if they become less sticky, you can use a damp cloth and wipe it down -- it should stick again.

The controls are a bit confusing, and they made it difficult to fully enjoy this product at first. The instructions are extremely vague, so there was a bit of trial and error to figure out the controls. We are able to operate the unit, but I still don't totally understand some of the functions. I do wish that there was an actual OFF button. To turn the unit off, you have to just turn it down until it goes off. There are times when we accidentally went too high; it would have been nice to be able to turn it off immediately, then.
    • Fits comfortably
    • Multiple ways to use
    • Will fit most people


It was difficult to find the right placement of the pads for me. On some places on my body, the electric pulse was much too intense,. On other places, it was hard to feel it on the low settings. Once you have figured out the placement of the pads and the intensity settings, this can definitely be a fun part of foreplay. It's especially fun if you are into sensory play, or light to moderate BDSM. Actually, the settings go MUCH higher than my husband and I could tolerate, so users into more extreme BDSM play would probably enjoy this, as well.

We were able to use this device on a low level intensity to help soothe my husband's aching back. It also took a bit of trial and error to find the right placement for the pads, and the right intensity and speed settings. He enjoyed it, though; he said it helped with some of his back pain due to a bulged disk.
    • Easy to put on / use
    • Holds up to use well
    • Multiple settings

Care and Maintenance

This item is extremely easy to care for. Since it doesn't actually go inside your body, cleanup is simple. You can simply use a damp cloth to wipe down the pads, and place the plastic covering back on them. Replacement pads are also available for purchase.

I would definitely suggest removing the batteries for storage, just like with any other battery operated device -- especially if you are storing it for any extended period of time.
    • Easy to clean
    • Easy to store


It came in a box with everything we needed, except for batteries. Inside the box was a thin molded plastic piece that held all of the pieces in place. It is not a sturdy package, so it would be good for long term storage in my opinion. For now, though, it works well to store this in its original packaging.

The packaging is not discreet at all. This could travel well, and if you do not have it in the original packaging, it probably wouldn't be completely obvious what it is used for. You could easily say that it is for therapeutic massage purposes, and you would not arouse any suspicions of it being something sensual.

Instructions are included, but they are extremely vague. I would have liked a more detailed instruction book with this, instead of a small piece of paper with instructions.
    • Good for storage
    • Recyclable


It took a lot of trial and error with this one -- along with a few screams, when it got too intense. I don't like that it doesn't have an actual OFF button (you just have to turn it down until it goes off). Some of the times when it was turned up to a too intense level, my husband just had to pull the plug from the device as a quick shut off solution.

With that said, I want to point out that I am not at all disappointed in this product. It has been very fun, and I'm sure it will continue to be fun.
Follow-up commentary
I don't necessarily not like this anymore, but it really doesn't get used much. The most it gets used for is on my partner's aching back, which it does a great job! I do still like it though - it's just not in heavy rotation.

  • Woman China
    Thanks for the review.

    I have been eyeing this for a while as I would love to use it on my back to relax the muscles a little especially while in class.

    How well does the pads thingies stick to your skin? Can you apply them, wear clothes on top of them then go about your day type of deal?
  • PropertyOfPotter
    Thanks for the review! I wonder how well this would work for body pain. They use something like this on me during physical therapy.
  • married with children
    good review, thanks for sharing.
  • babycakess
    @Woman China - I am not sure how well it would work that way. The pads seem to stick really well, but I haven't really tried keeping them on and moving around, etc.

    @PropertyOfPotter - it is basically the same thing, it just comes in a sexier box
  • Kwumii
    Wow I hope this comes back in stock soon
  • babycakess
    @Kwumii - we had to wait a LONG time! Every time I would get an email that it was in stock, by the time I remembered to come order it, it was gone again! Good luck and definitely set up an email alert if you haven't already
