It’s time for my second E-Stim review, right on the back of their ETO Award win this month, and today I’m looking at the Torpedo metal butt plug. I was quite excited when E-Stim agreed to send this one over to me as I’ve been keen to try out a metal attachment for a while, ever since I made my first foray into the world of electro-play last year with a lovely silicone toy from another brand. Metal is actually a sex toy material I’m rather fond of in general – you need only read my review of the nJoy Pure Plug 2.0 to be convinced of that – so to my mind coupling it with my appreciation for electro-play can only be a recipe for good things.
A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by the folks at E-Stim who asked if I’d be interested in reviewing any of their products, and being that I’ve enjoyed Electrosex toys before I was quick to say yes. I requested this impressive metal beast of a butt plug that they call the Torpedo, and when they sent it over they were kind enough to include some other goodies too, in the form of their “Intro2Electro for Him” kit, and a Micro Urethral Sound.
Once I had the Sound positioned to my liking I turned on the power unit and got that familiar tingling sensation I’m so fond of all through the head of my penis. What’s interesting about the EBox Series 1 unit is that it features more of an analogue design compared to the previous power unit that I’m familiar with. Everything is controlled by knobs and dials rather than buttons, and this actually makes it quite fun to play around with. There are three basic modes to choose from “Pulse” “Continuous” and “Manual”. The best place to start is probably with “Continuous” and with this selected you can then manipulate the strength of the electrical supply using the “Output Level” knob. Slowly cranking up this dial takes it from a mild tingling sensation in the penis to something that feels almost like a vibration. It’s very easy to use the knob to increase the output gradually to give yourself a chance to get used to it and enjoy the more intense sensations as you work up to them. It’s also easy to slip and go a little higher than you wanted to and then have to quickly turn it back down again. The next mode to try is “Pulse” and with this selected you’ll feel a steady series of pulses of electricity at whatever power level you’re currently set to. Using the “Pulse Rate” dial you can adjust the frequency of the pulses, depending on if you want something slow and soothing or something really quite rapid. This is probably my favourite mode as it seems to deliver more sensation when there’s a break in the supply, rather than a constant flow. You can play around with the dial and have a few rapid pulses followed by a few slower ones. There’s also another dial labelled “Pulse Feel” which goes from Soft to Hard, and you can also play around with this whilst in Pulse mode. It allows you to adjust how forceful each Pulse feels within your given power setting, whether you want the pulse to feel like a sharp jolt each time, or something more gentle. The final mode “Manual” works in conjunction with a button labelled “Fire”, and the power supply only flows when this button is depressed, allowing you to customise your own rhythm of pulses. It all gives you a nice flexible array of options to choose from during your play session.
Today I’m going to be looking at a product which combines two things which each alone seem to terrify the uninitiated, that is urethral sounding and electro play. That’s right, if you’ve ever wondered what it might feel like to insert a metal rod into your penis and hook it up to an electrical supply then you’ve come to the right place! Before you start crossing your legs and frantically clicking the “back” button on your browser I have to tell you that it really isn’t as scary as you’re imagining. It is after all a sex toy, and sex toys are about pleasure, not medieval torture devices, so while it may seem like the extreme end of S&M it couldn’t be further from that.
