TENS unit / electrostim
« on: May 04, 2018, 07:20:22 PM »
I haven't posted here in a couple of years, just posted a few new discoveries elsewhere on the board,

but one thing I have been waiting to mention is that i am able to achieve orgasm via a TENS unit although it seems to cause a flair up in my lyme and coinfection symtpoms and so is generally not good for me.

Of course, there are reasonable concerns about any of you trying this so you are on your own as far as research and not dying or suffering some other horrible outcome.  But I was just wondering if anyone else had resorted to this and what the outcome was (and why has this never been mentioned on this forum in any meaningful way?).  And if it works what does this say about the anatomy of the EA?

Just checking back in-

I know most of us "EA'ers" are dealing with this long term and may go months/years without logging in.  But I do know for a fact that I am not the only EA'er desperate enough for the release of sexual tension (normal biological function) to experiment with electrostim, e.g. using a TENS unit for an uninTENded purpose.

So, please for the sake of the collective, log in and sound off.

I pledge to return to the thread to further discuss this because it may reveal some physiological neurological answers to the EA/orgasm issue that may be actionable or may allow sufferers to have some sexual orgasmic sensation and may also shed light on a cause, at least for some of us.

I bought one but never got around to trying it.

Didn't expect it to bring orgasms, more just to train the muscles in the area.

I'm interested in hearing how you got it to work for you.

If you look up make estim on the web you will get some ideas, basically using a $40 model with about 6 modes available and adjustable intensity. I had success with placing one probe on testicles and one on foreskin covering the glans. Also with two on opposite sides...just don't let the probes touch and read up on safety issues with tens (you have to be hands free, don't want current running through heart) that and porn vids did the trick

376 views and no one comments/tries it?

Any questions or discussion?

Somehow the direct application of electrical impulses seems to induce the nerves to release "the good stuff" and it allowed me to remember some of the calmness and afterglow effects after a normal orgasm (instead of the POIS type aftereffects i would sometimes  get.  Eg oxytocin?

Let's talk about this please

GDOP

What country do you live in?  Are you telling me customs would intercept a TENS unit?

Also, are you in a country where cold medicine may legally contain phenylpropanalomine?  I believe it interacts with the melanocortin gene (see my other post) and I am personally curious to try PPA again since it was banned in the USA

don't get me started on conspiracy theories

Anyone interested in the TENS unit/eSTIM please reply or PM me

You can't buy medical things from other countries here (at least without government approval).
Anyway I'm busy with other medical problems in the same spot (chronical? urethral pain near the tip of the penis) which is driving me a little crazy.

Did my research, there is no meds with phenylpropanolamine here, I'm sorry.

Wikipedia
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Phenylpropanolamine

Quote
In the United States, PPA is no longer sold due to a purported increased risk of stroke in younger women. In a few countries in Europe, however, it is still available either by prescription or sometimes over-the-counter. In Canada, it was withdrawn from the market on 31 May 2001.[11] In India human use of PPA and its formulations was banned on 10 February 2011,[12] but the ban was overturned by the judiciary in September 2011.[13]

The US seems to be screwed for phenylpropanalomine.

Which E-Stim did you go for? It looks interesting. Great to hear that it actually works.

Ok. I finally fired up my TENS.

It was a complete dud for me. Mainly, I just found it uncomfortable. Zap Zap Zap.

It got less uncomfortable as I increased the frequency. Or used different modes that spread out the zap across time. Then it's more like a buzz than a zap.

I put one contact on the underside of the head. The other contact at the base of the spine (just above the cleft of the ass), or at the base of the penis.
 
I'll experiment with more locations and settings. My TENS has 4 pads, speed, intensity, and massage/beat/knead selections.

Besides the orgasm, did you get an pleasant feels out of this?

For me, it was all anhedonic electricity. It didn't provoke an erection. Even a chubby.
