Safety and Risk Awareness in Electro Play

Integrating Electroplay Safely in BDSM Practices

Electroplay is a form of sensation play that uses mild electric current to stimulate the body’s nerve endings and induce pleasure.

The sensations from electroplay can vary from a mild tingling to intense bursts of energy, leading to increased sexual pleasure. These sensations are controlled through adjustable intensity settings on the device, which can be tailored to individual preferences and tolerances.

Electroplay offers a unique opportunity to explore your partner's body in new ways or to push the boundaries of pleasure. However, it's important to recognise that electroplay might not be for everyone; it's a definite limit for some. Despite its potential for intense enjoyment, the idea of electrical currents can be daunting. Therefore, it’s crucial to establish your own comfort and consent levels, particularly when integrating electroplay into your BDSM activities. 

Important Things to Consider During Electro Play

Electro Play is unsuitable for the following individuals and conditions:

  • Health Conditions: Avoid Electro Play if you have heart issues, epilepsy, nerve damage, or are pregnant.

  • Implanted Devices: It is not suitable for those with any implanted electronic devices or fluid implants, such as pacemakers, insulin pumps, or cochlear implants.

  • Skin Conditions: Do not use Electro Play on sunburned skin, melanoma, or open wounds.

  • Metallic Objects: Avoid using Electro Play near any metal piercings, implants, or plates, as these can conduct electricity. 

  • Water Exposure: Electro Play should not be used in water.

  • Sensitive Areas: Avoid using Electro Play near the heart or on any part of the head.

To ensure safe use of the Electro Play device, it is essential to test it on yourself first:

  • Start Low: Begin at the lowest setting to understand the intensity of the current. Since sensitivity can vary greatly from person to person, it's important to increase the intensity gradually to find a comfortable level.
  • Check Skin Condition: Make sure that the area of skin where the device will be used is healthy. The skin should be free from cuts, burns, or bruises, and should not have moles or particularly sensitive spots. This will help prevent discomfort and potential skin damage during use.

    Avoid mucous membranes during Electro Play:

    • Sensitive Areas: Avoid using Electro Play devices near highly conductive and sensitive areas such as the eyes, nose, and genitals. These regions are particularly susceptible to burns, and it's crucial to prevent the devices from contacting these areas to avoid injury.

    Be cautious with high currents and prolonged exposure:

    • Manage Intensity and Duration: It's important to limit both the intensity and the duration of exposure to any single area. Prolonged or intense exposure can increase the risk of discomfort or injury, so it’s advisable to use lower settings and to frequently move the device to different areas.

      Stay away from flammable substances during Electro Play:

      • Avoid Combustibles: Keep all flammable materials such as perfumes, colognes, hairsprays, and deodorants away from the area where Electro Play is being used. These substances can ignite if exposed to electrical currents, in a manner similar to their reaction to open flames.
      • Be Mindful of Fabrics: Be cautious with what you wear during Electro Play. Certain fabrics may melt or catch fire under the influence of electrical currents. Opt for materials that are safe and non-conductive to minimise any risk of melting or ignition.

        Post-play care is as essential as the session itself:

        • Session Setup: Begin by setting up your chosen electroplay device, adjusting it to deliver sensations that can range from electrical twitches to pulses or thrusts. Since each person's response to electroplay can vary significantly, tailor the session according to individual preferences and reactions.
        • Engage in Aftercare: After concluding electroplay, it’s important to engage in aftercare activities. This can include cuddling, discussing the session to ensure it was enjoyable for both parties, and checking the areas involved in play for any signs of bruising or burns.
        • Prepare for Emergencies: Always keep a first aid kit nearby for immediate attention to any issues that arise. If any serious concerns develop, such as severe burns or allergic reactions, seek medical advice without delay to ensure safety and proper care.
