E-Bead 2.0

Small & Large E-Stim Systems E-Bead 2.0

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

A couple of weeks ago I reviewed the new E-Stim Systems version of Mr SElectrified World’s Most Comfortable Butt Plug that. Since the WMCBP has always been a signature product of Mr S, another product E-Stim Systems now manufactures for them got little attention: The E-Bead 2.0. In my opinion too little attention, to let’s take a look at this toy.

Design

The E-Bead 2.0 is a bi-polar, insertable electrode. This means you do not need another electrode for stimulation. The two poles equally sized and barrel-shaped which taper about a third each way towards their flat tops and bottoms. Between them is a thin isolator made out of black polymer. Unlike other E-Stim Systems electrode, both poles are permanently connected. Due to this design, there are now two 4mm banana jacks on the bottom of the electrode but a 155cm long sturdy lead with a 3.5mm jack is soldered onto is.

What the E-Bead 2.0 does have in common with E-Stim Systems other premium electrode is aircraft grade aluminum they are made out of. The surface features a brushing that gives the material a silk-like look and feel.

The E-Beads 2.0 comes in two sizes for different experience levels.

Size Overall Length Barrel Diameter Barrel Length Isolator Length Weight
Small 96mm 32mm 38mm 20mm 130g
Large 124mm 38mm 51mm 22mm 255g

Playing with the E-Bead 2.0

If you have played before with other premium insertables from E-Stim Systems, you will soon realize that the E-Bead 2.0 is unlike (almost) every other electrode they make. This is largely due to both sides being equally large and equally heavy or to be frank, a bit tail-heavy due to the lead. Since both barrels have the same, large mass and relatively large surface area, the sensation of the E-Bead 2.0 is mostly smooth – depending on your power box, program and output level. This is not really a short-coming but if you wrap your head around it, it becomes a cool new way of playing.

Detail of the Flat Barrel Tops and the Soldered Lead

The most common game my tested played was challenging (looser) subs standing straight or suspended in a harness to keep the electrode in. While this does not sound too hard at first glance, the E-Bead focuses most of the stimulation directly on the sphincter causing the sub to tense it. When the stimulation decreases, he relaxes and the electrode could fall out. A loosely related game did a dom play with his sub: Put him in a jockstrap, loose shorts, attach the electrode to a remote controlled box and the sub has to walk around and not facing the embarrassment of a buttplug electrode falling out of his ass. He tried this type of play with other electrodes but since the base usually has considerably less weight than the head, it only worked well with either extremely large electrodes or the E-Bead 2.0.

As an electrode for lying down, the E-Bead 2.0 got mixed reviews from bottoms. Some liked the slimmer footprint since there is not base, others found the lower barrel too long and thus uncomfortable. And of course, depending on the bottom’s experience level, there is a chance of the electrode just slipping in.

Detail of the Isolator between the Two Poles

The highlight of the E-Bead 2.0 is of course the fact that through the soldered lead it is a closed system. This means the electrode can be completely pushed into the rectum. This is opens up a completely new field of e-stim play. Through the large mass and length, the electrode “spins” inside the hole, touching areas otherwise never stimulated. The effect intensifies when the bottom wiggles and moves and thus somehow comes close to feedback loops created by audio or movement programs on power boxes: The more the bottom moves, the more movement inside the rectum, the more stimulation. Especially with the large electrode, electrode’s mass moving around inside the body adds another layer of stimulation. This kind of sensation is the strongest when the sub moves freely, when walking for example. Another unique experience for loose subs is when a skilled top slip two fingers in and press the prostate between the two poles for a mind-blowing stimulation.

Of course, this construction makes handling the E-Bead 2.0 a bit different from other electrodes. You must not pull on the lead to get it out! The lead is sturdy but not made to handle this kind of force. Instead, the bottom should push it out. Due to the shape, the electrode sometimes “jams” inside the rectum but rest assured: Everything that goes in, comes out again. Though being fistable for the top to grab it manually is nifty and adds another aspect to the play 😉 Since the electrode can’t be disassembled, simply wash the body and the lead in warm soap water, leaving the plug outside the water.

eVac

The Vast eVac with the two Possible Electrode Rods

Vendor: Vast (formerly Demask Dortmund)

Construction

At a first glance, the eVac looks like a standard vacuum cylinder for cock pumping. The tube has an internal length of 245mm and a diameter of 50mm. The base is very wide with a diameter of 105mm and 10mm thick with rounded edges. The large base helps to reduce pressure on the pubic bone and makes creating a vacuum seal easier. Another attribute that sets this toy apart from other vacuum cylinders is the vacuum valve sitting on the side instead on top. The valve is a standard valve so you can use the eVac with most of your existing pumps and hoses like from LA Pump or Thickwall Cylinders.

On top of the cylinder is a short stainless steel tube with an M12 outer thread. It is tightly screwed and airtight foamed against the acrylic top. Through this tube you thread a 10mm steel rod from inside the cylinder. While every rod has a 4mm banana jack on top, the bottom comes in two varieties: The first one features a half-dome with a diameter of 48mm at the bottom and has an overall length of 225mm. The other one is 275mm long, has a rounded tip for urethra insertion and can also be ordered in an 8mm version if your urethra cannot handle 10mm sounds. This rod comes with a half-dome that has a 10mm hole in the middle that leads into a short tube. On the side of the tube there is a little screw with a 3mm hex to fix it on any height. To keep the rod in place inside the cylinder it is fixed with a cap nut that has a rubber seal inside for an airtight closure of the cylinder.

Detail of the Sounding and Half-Dome Ends of the Two Electrodes

Like all products leaving the workshops of Vast, the eVac is top notch quality: The cylinder is made out of thick and sturdy acrylic. The individual parts are glued with painstaking attention to detail so there is no messy glue-line visible. The acryl has been flamed thoroughly so the tube it is completely clear while the top and the base is solid black. All metal parts are stainless steel (resp. the cap nut has a brass interior) with flawless finish, all weld seams have been smoothed,

Playing with the eVac

The first thing my testees noticed was the relatively small vacuum cylinder of the eVac. This is actually a feature because through the smaller volume, the vacuum take effect more quickly and even small pump movements will produce noticeable results. In combination with the wide base for even distribution of the cylinder’s rim down-force, it is a pretty comfortable vacuum cylinder compared to others.

Detail of the Vacuum Valve and the Cap Nut to Fix the Electrode

The pièce de résistance of course is the rod-shaped electrode. The “gentler” one of the two is the simple half-dome one. You can either use it for pleasure play by positioning it contacting a large area of the glans already. This was the e-stim stimulation will basically stay the same, adding to the heightened sensitivity and vacuum sensation of the dick while you keep pumping. More devious of course is placing the electrode just a bit away from the dick. As you keep pumping and the dick keeps growing, the penis tip will make contact at some point, getting a shock and go soft a bit – until you pump a bit more, it gets harder again and the cycle starts over.

The eVac equipped with the Sounding Electrode

A bit more intense is the sounding electrode. You can approach this toy from two angles: First, just play the same game of short touching as with the half-domed one. But since the sound’s tip has a smaller surface area, the shock of touch will be more intense and pointed. Second, you can of course insert the tip into the urethra. This way there is an initial e-stim connection right away. As you start pumping, the sound will penetrate the dick further, adding a deeper stretch sensation while the e-stim sensation will fade a bit due to the larger contact area.

Inserting the half-domed electrode is a bit of hassle since the rod if considerably shorter than the cylinder. My recommendation: Put the half-dome onto a silicone dildo’s glans. The silicone’s stickiness will keep the electrode in play for easy navigation. Since the sounding rod is way longer, you do not have the problem with that electrode.

Detail of the Banana Jack and the Adjustable Half-Dome of the Sounding Electrode

Naturally, the eVac’s rod is a monopole. This means, you will need to connect an anal or scrotal electrode to the same channel as the rod. I have seen a prototype of a sheet electrode to be put below wide base. If you are interested, I am pretty sure Vast can manufacture something on demand.

Since the complete rod is one big pole, a word of warning when handling this toy while playing on your own. Especially when the tip of the toy has not touched your dick yet, touching the rod barehanded will let the currency flow through your arm and potentially through your heart! Because of that, for selfplay, I recommend wearing rubber gloves to prevent accidents from happening.

Conclusion: Unique electrode for elaborate and devious e-stim cock play.

E-Stim Systems Remote

The E-Stim System Remote

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

In 2010 E-Stim Systems introduced the Series 1 Remote (now called Classic Remote to avoid confusion), their first remotely controlled e-stim power box which was quite the crowd pleaser. In 2020, with 10 years of technological advances, they introduced their new Remote. So let’s find out what a decade of progress has yielded.

Construction

On a first glance, not much has changed on the outside. It is still a rectangular box made out of quality, sturdy black polymer which measuring 111x68x28mm (respectively 34mm if you take the depth of the belt clip on the back into account) is slightly larger than the Classic Remote. The panel at the front side features one 3.5mm socket on the left and the power switch on the right. Behind the power switch the microphone is located. Another input method is the new motion sensor.

Detail of the LED Panel

The upper side features the same graphic grey dot design and colored logo of all “modern” E-Stim Systems power boxes like the Pebble. On top of this panel there are two LEDs: The left flashes when the box is firing, the right with the wireless logo lights up when the box receives signals from the remote. In the panel middle there is a line of seven LEDs which are dual-used. Firstly, the five center LEDS indicate which program is selected through a flash pattern (see below). Secondly, the seven LEDs are the indicator for the for the 27 power levels using different flash patterns for each LED: First flashing slow, then medium, then fast until it stays on. The box is powered by a standard 9V block battery which’s compartment is on the bottom. So if the battery runs out of power you can replace it easily and quickly during the scene.

The box is entirely controlled via a small remote control measuring 59.5x33x8.5mm, featuring a key ring at the bottom and the same graphic, modern design like the power box on top. On the top left corner there is a green LED that flashes when the remote transmits. To control the power box, there are four buttons. In the left there is a “Plus” and a “Minus” button for controlling the power level. On the right on top is the “Fire” button; at the bottom is a circular arrow. Pressing this button and the “Minus” button simultaneously triggers the program selection. You can now cycle through the programs with the “Plus” and “Minus” buttons and select it with the circular arrow button.

Detail of the Screwed Battery Compartment of the Remote Control

Out of the box, the remote control needs to be paired with the power box in a simple process: Turn the power box on and press the pairing button at the bottom of the battery compartment. Then press any button on the remote control until the right top LED on the power box flashes. Finally press any button on the remote control again to finish the pairing process. While this is more hassle than other products on the market, it ensures that the remote controlled is paired with YOUR box. This is important especially in public play spaces where multiple boxes can be present simultaneously.

Replacing the remote control’s battery is a bit of a pain in the ass because you need a very small screw driver to open the battery compartment. Even with extensive usage I did not manage to deplete the battery so I guess this will not be necessary too often.

Detail of the Remote’s Top Panel with 3.5mm Jack and Power Switch

Like all E-Stim Systems Premium Products the Remote has a lifetime warranty if you register it at their website. Again, like all of their power boxes it comes in a black carrying case lined with foam. If you cut the foam a bit on your own, there is plenty of space for some basic electrodes. Out of the box the Remote comes with a quick start guide , a battery, 4 pad electrodes and one 3.5mm jack to 2mm pin plug leads. While I can understand the choice so you can out of the box connect the box to the pad electrode it is still a bit annoying because most E-Stim Systems electrodes are laid out for 4mm banana plugs (for more detailed information of the carrying case’s content, read my unboxing).

Playing with the Remote Power Box

When you turn on the box, there is a 3 second self-test during which the seven LEDs in the middle light up after each other. If the battery is low, only the first LED flashes. The Remote always boots to no program and power level zero. So you first need to select your program and then the power level to start the stimulation.

Program Name Sensation Adjust Effect Fire Button Flashing Pattern
Fire Firing continuously at the pre-selected intensity level as long the as the “Fire” button is pressed (automatically cuts out after 30sec) Softness of sensation First and second LED
Flo Continuous output Softness of sensation Increases intensity by 4 levels Second and seventh LED
Pulse Single Pulses Speed of pulses Continuous firing First and third LED
Training Mode Minus – firing 25% output

Adjust – firing 50% output

Plus – firing 75% output

100% output Third and seventh LED
Teese Rising sensation until selected maximum power level Cycle length Increases intensity by 4 levels First and fourth LED
Torment Continuous output which changes from soft to stingy Cycle length Increases intensity by 4 levels Fourth and seventh LED
Audio Low Pattern is based on audio input (lower microphone sensitivity baseline) Microphone sensitivity 100% output First and fifth LED
Audio High Pattern is based on audio input (higher microphone sensitivity baseline) Microphone sensitivity 100% output Fifth and seventh LED
Motion Low Pattern is based on movement of the box (lower motion sensor sensitivity baseline) Motion sensor sensitivity 100% output First and sixth LED
Motion High Pattern is based on movement of the box (higher motion sensor sensitivity baseline) Motion sensor sensitivity 100% output Sixth and seventh LED

Detail of the Belt Clip

The Remote uses a digital processor to create the wave patterns. This is where you can probably see the biggest improvement over the last 10 years. While old digital boxes produced “edged” output compared to the seamless analogue ones, the Remote’s programs are smooth. That being said, the sensation can of course be mean and stingy, depending on the power level and the adjustment. While 28 power levels might not sound much, the maximum output level has significantly increased over the Classic Remote and should be enough for most e-stim players. Of course, the steps between the individual levels can be challenging. So especially when playing with a novice be cautious when you increase the sensitivity.

Detail of the Remote’s Control

The programs echo the main purpose of the box: Controlling your sub remotely. The box misses classic “pleasurable” programs like Wave or Milk mostly used on fettered subs. Instead it focuses on bringing the sub’s attention to the top or tormenting him. Like almost all build-in microphones of e-stim units it is not that great and sensitive. So if you want to use the audio feature, place the power switch directly in front of the audio source for a good and detailed input. On the other hand, the motion sensor is VERY sensitive! The devious (sadistic) mind will probably soon find many ways to create feedback loops or bring the sub in precarious situation when the belt clip is attached to a freely moving object like a harness’ d-ring.

E-Stim Systems claims the radio range of the remote control is 100m. In order to test it I took a sub to a running track on a sunny day and managed 97m range. Factors like walls (and what they are made out of), people, battery strength and even humidity will impact the range! So at large events or when sitting to far away from your playroom, consider moving closer to your sub when he does not react as expected.

In the end, all things considered – especially the functionality of the “Fire” button -, the Remote is a bit more of a sadist’s toy who want to train the sub instead of a pleasure device.

Conclusion: Remote controlled e-stim power box with programs more on the sadistic side.

Sirius & Habanero Prostate Massager

The ElectraStim Sirius (left) and Habanero (right) laying on the Storage Bag

Vendor: ElectraStim

Last year ElectraStim introduced their new Fusion range of e-stim toys which stands out through a signature red & black color pattern. So for this year’s E-Stim Special I decided to compare how the new Fusion prostate massager compares to their “old” yet still in production Noir one.

Design

Both toys follow the same basic design: A bean shaped head sits on a small neck perpendicular to a roughly kidney shaped body. At the bottom of it, there is a hinge to adjust the angle between the body and the base. This is necessary because everyone’s anatomy is different so in order to target the prostate some adjustment is necessary.

The base is oval and again a bit bulky. Through the bulgy at the tip, it can be used to stimulate the prostate area on the perineum. Inside the lower half of the sides there are grooves for better grip when manually moving the toy to massage the prostate. At first glance, the base is the biggest difference between the two toys: At the Sirius it is completely smooth and has for 2mm pin jacks perpendicular to the bottom. The Habanero has four ridges on the top and at the bottom there is a big recess with two 2mm pin jacks parallel to the body and deep cable ducts to organize the lead.

Detail how both Toys can Bend to adjust to each Body

Other difference come up when you look at both toys more closely. While both have a max. insertable length of 115mm, the Habanero is bulkier in all dimensions: The head measures 29x43mm vs. 25x41mm; the body 34x44mm vs. 29x37mm. Also the cast seam running around both toys in the middle is almost not noticeable on the Habanero while you can see albeit not really feel it inside your anus on the Sirius.

As you can tell form the number of jacks, the Habanero is a bi-polar toy. The black conductive silicone patches are very prominent on the red silicone of the body. Both patches run on the sides from the head down to the neck above the base. The Sirius has four conductive patches: Two on top of the base and two running from the head till the middle of the body.

Both toys are made out of medical grade silicone. So they are a 100% body-safe – and a dust magnet. As you can see from the pics, despite washing them thoroughly before taking the pictures for this review, the time to dry was enough for them to get dusty again. Luckily they are easy to clean! Just wash them in hot dish-soap water, let them dry, spray sanitizer and then store them away. To protect them from other plasticizers of other toys in your toy box, they come with a nifty cloth storage bag.

Detail of the 2mm Pin Jacks of both Toys

Playing with the Sirius and Habanero

There are two aspects to look at when comparing the two toys: The mechanical and electronic stimulation. Mechanical stimulation means putting rubbing and pressing on the prostate both inside the rectum and on the perineum and enjoying the stretching sensation inside the anus when moving the toy in and out. In this category the Habanero is clearly ahead. Being bulkier, the stimulation on all three areas is stronger. A healthy prostate has about the size of a walnut. The slightly flatter and larger head of the Habanero is better to target it. There is a lower chance of slipping when applying pressure on it. When “tickling” it between the head’s bottom and the neck, the longer slope is beneficial. The same applies for the more voluminous body for stretching the anus. Because it is considerably longer than wide, twisting it inside the anus or during fucking, is an interesting experience. Over time, most testees developed a “routine” how to move the massager to synchronize maximum prostate and anus stimulation. This is important because piling up as much sensations as possible is necessary to ultimately achieve an anal or prostate orgasm. Though both take a lot of practice so don’t expect them out of the box (unless you are VERY talented). Finally, there is the perineum stimulation and to be honest, there is not that much difference. The ridges on the Habanero do not increase the stimulation significantly. If you are hair, it is actually quite the reverse. But again, the bulkier size helps with the applying pressure to the prostate and the larger base generally make the control of the manual stimulation easier.

I was lucky enough to have both plugs tested by (almost) anal virgins in order to determine if Sirius’ smaller size has an advantage there. It’s not that you accuse me of only testing the toys on fist sluts who know no size limitations. Yes, of course the Sirius is easier to take. But for both toys these two recommend some pre-stretching. The complex shape going wider and thinner several times is a bit of a challenge for an inexperienced anus. Once pre-stretched, the size difference is almost not there anymore.

Detail of the Sirius‘ Poles on the Body’s Side and Bottom’s Top

Naturally, both toys should be well-lubed before being used. ONLY use water-based lube on them. Silicone lube will disintegrate the toy, starting with making the surface sticky. Furthermore, silicone lube is an isolator while water-based lube conducts electricity which is essential for the electronic stimulation.

Before I dive into looking in the differences of the two toys, first a short general excurse on e-stim sensation: Independently from the selected program and power unit, it is determined by mass and surface area of the conductor. The smaller and lighter, the stingier it will be. Being made out of conductive silicone, the sensation of both toys is on the stingier side of the sensation spectrum. This is not necessarily as unpleasant as it sounds. In low intensity it can be an enticing tingling. But when turning it up, it can become excruciating more quickly than on metal plugs for example.

This being said, looking at the two toys, this time the Sirius won more favors in my testee panel. This is largely due to having four poles. A vertical pole split instead of a horizontal is unusual for an insertable electrode but a common on ElectraStim products. Through this layout the popular fucking sensation of the wave-like patterns is not popular. Instead it focuses the sensation right inside the sphincter which leads to an interesting phase of re-discovering your power box. When I played with both plugs, I started to like programs I never liked and hated some of my favorites. Since the Sirius does not only have poles on the sides but also on the top of the base, you can create a connection between those pole pairs. Then the currency somewhat flows through the prostate which I personally found a more enjoyable and more stimulation experience (the prostate rivals the anus with nerve ending density). However, since the leads stick out of the bottom of the Sirius instead of being lead out of the body like on the Habanero, using the Sirius is a bit complicated. You can basically only use it lying down, while you can sit on the Habanero, riding and grinding it for max. manual stimulation.

So, in the end, which one of the two is for you? It depends on what you are looking for. If your focus is on e-stim, get the Sirius. It is more flexible and the more elaborate e-stim toy. Also, if you are familiar with e-stim, you have probably found ways of dealing with suboptimal lead positions. If your primary focus is the manual stimulation you want to spice up with added e-stim fun, I would recommend the Habanero. All things considered, the prostate play savvy members of my testee panel managed to get prostate orgasms with both. So regardless which one of the two you choose, with enough training (and being chaste long and not too long enough I have been told…), you will learn how to climax with them.

E-WMCBP 2.0

The E-Stim Systems E-WMCBP 2.0

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

A little bit over 4 ½ years ago I reviewed the original version of Mr S’ Electrified World’s Most Comfortable Butt Plug. Mr S discontinued the original model some time again – both the electrified one (probably because there have been problems with lead fractures) and “analog” one. In March 2019 a new all-silicone version was introduced, leaving e-stim lovers twitching bit unsatisfied. Luckily half a year later Mr S Leather proudly presented E-Stim Systems as the manufacturer of an all new Electrified World’s Most Comfortable Butt Plug or short E-WMCBP 2.0. Being a big fan of E-Stim Systems’ premium electrodes and having to live up to a massive legacy, I was very excited for this review! Let’s see how the E-WMCBP 2.0 performs.

Design

As the name already states the E-WMCBP 2.0 is an insertable electrode and like almost all premium E-Stim Systems ones a bi-polar one, meaning you don’t need another electrode to enjoy the sensation. Like its brothers it is made out of aircraft grade aluminum which is treated with E-Stim Systems’ “new” matt finished, giving it a slik-like look and feel.

Detail of the Screw and Banana Jack for the Body

The basic form follows the one of the original World’s Most Comfortable Butt Plug: The body starts out cone-shaped with a dull tip followed by a barrel-shaped middle section which about 60% of the overall body length until it tapers again into a cone-shaped bottom. The transition from sloped cone to straight barrel is softly rounded and thus a bit more comfortable than on the original toy.

Like all E-Stim Systems premium electrodes now follows a neck made out of a black polymer which 28mm long and has a diameter of 11mm. This houses and isolates (together with a small white polymer washer) the stainless steel screw from the base. At the bottom of the screw there is not only a 4mm banana jacket but also a 2mm deep hex key socket.

The base is a disc with 50mm diameter and 11mm height. The middle is slightly tapering towards the neck and softly flows into the disc’s surface. On base’s side there is another hole for a 4mm banana plug, turning the disc into the second pole.

The E-WMCBP 2.0 comes in two sizes. Both sizes share the base but the body is significantly different.

Size Overall Length Body Diameter Body Length Weight
Medium 126mm 38mm 75mm 270g
Large 139mm 44mm 88mm 355g

The E-WMCBP 2.0 Disassembled

Playing with the E-WMCBP 2.0

Being an e-stim plug, let’s see how the E-WMCBP 2.0 performs in that regard. Being offering a large mass and surface, this electrifiable butt plug provides very smooth and pleasurable sensations to start out with. Though depending on the box, program and power level naturally can turn into a stingy beasty. The relatively large and thick base compared to other E-Stim Systems’ insterables makes the sensation even a tad bit softer than other plugs. Due to the top-down-pole-distribution this plug is perfect for the often sought getting-fucked sensation wave-shaped programs provide.

All the points more or less also applied to the original design. The greatest different is the mechanical and thus handling aspect of the new plug. The most important difference is the stiff neck that connects the base with the body. Being rigid there is a leverage effect, especially when being outside and walking. In combination with the heavy and voluminous body this lead to interesting sensation inside the rectum, particularly when the head hits the prostate.

Detail of the Base with the Banana Jack and Tapering Center

My testee panel was split on judging this effect. Some enjoyed the added stimulation, other said that WMCBP lost a bit of its charm and USP of being comfortable, even almost unnoticeable wearable over hours without the flexible connection. I have never been a fan of long-term plug wearing so I cannot tip the scales. So when you have to replace a possible broken original Electrified Worlds Most Comfortable Butt Plug keep in mind that the wearing sensation can be very different. Since the neck is longer and thinner than on all other E-Stim Systems’ electrodes, the sphincter closes up more, so through the leverage this event is intensified when the anus twitched from the stimulation. As an added bonus the thinner and longer neck lowered the risk of the plug falling out when being out and about. This effect is supported by the different base design. The original base had a flat surface that was connected by a 45° edge to the sides. So a relatively large, flat surface was pressing against the anus, having some leverage effect. It is surprising, but the little tapering middle section makes for an enormously more comfortable, almost ergonomic wearing experience, compensating a bit the negative effect of the solid neck.

Detail of the Tapered Body with Blunt Tip

The stiff neck has another advantage. The original plug was a nightmare to push through the sphincter once lubed the toy. The body became slippery and gripping the base did not provide any help at all. With the rigid connection, even after lubing up the base serves as a comfortable handle. Speaking of insertion: Being made completely out of metal and polymer, in theory you can now use silicone lube with the E-WMCBP 2.0 – but only if you use it without e-stim stimulation. Silicone lube is an isolator. If you want sizzling e-stim fun, only use water-based lube (Specific e-stim lube is not necessary in most cases. Personally I use Swiss Navy Waterbased for e-stim).

Following the E-Stim Systems’ standard design for premium insertables, the E-WMCBP 2.0 addresses two of my major points of criticism on the original toy: Where on the legacy version lead fractures was a constant threat, the E-WMCBP 2.0 is virtually indestructible. Also cleaning is a jiffy: Unscrew the body from the base, take all elements apart and wash in hot dish-soap water, dry, sanitize, done.

E-Stim Systems Duo Pinwheel

The E-Stim Systems Duo Pinwheel

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

It’s been over five years since I reviewed E-Stim Systems’ Monopole Pinwheel. Since then I have been reader questions about the Duo Pinwheel. I thought such a review would be unnecessary because it is just a duopole version but since apparently there is a demand for the review and your wish is my command, here it is.

Design

The basis of this toy are two standard pinwheels with added e-stim functionality. The are 180mm long and the wheels have a diameter of 32mm. For connection to your e-stim box a 4mm banana jack is solidly soldered onto the top of each individual pinwheel. A shrinking hose has been put over the body of the wheel so you can safely grip it. The two pinwheels are connected using machine screws with acorn nuts on both sides, creating a gap of 10mm between the wheels’ bodies. Around the screws and between the two pinwheels are polymer spacers. Also the washers are made out of plastic, so both pinwheels are completely isolated.

Detail of the Spacers

Playing with the Duo Pinwheel

In the Monopole’s review, as always when it comes to E-Stim I warned about currency running over the chest because it can be fatal. The Duo Pinwheel solves this problem. Because both poles are only 15mm apart, the chances of currency not taking the shortest way between both (which is usually the one of lowest resistance) are very very slim. So as long as both poles of the Duo Pinwheel are connected to the same channel of a power box with isolated channels (like the E-Stim Systems 2b or Pebble), the pinwheel can be used all over the body, even the nipples!

Even though, the mass and covered surface area doubles in size compared to the Monopole version, the e-stim sensation does not change much. Regardless of the power box or the program, the sensation will always be a stingy one. It feels like little needle pricks. Though the power level determines whether they are tantalizing or excruciating.

The non-electric pinwheel sensation is a bit different from the Monopole. Since two wheels are now touching the skin, the nerve input is stronger and delicate feelings like tickling are almost impossible to create. The sensation is a light to medium stingy pain which does not break the skin. On the other hand, the sturdier, handier build of the Duo Pinwheel allow for more pressure to be applied without it breaking away when running over the sub’s body. So it finally delivers the sensation most people expect when they see a pinwheel. This comes at a bit of a price because the elegant curving over the sub’s body is kind of hard to achieve with both wheels touching the skin.

AXIS

Vendor: ElectraStim

The ElectraStim AXIS

For over 5 years, I have been doing reviews of e-stim power boxes and electrodes on this website. Through the annual E-Stim Specials and e-stim being one of my favorite things as a bottom, I have earned a bit of a reputation of being an e-stim expert. So naturally I was thrilled when ElectraStim approached me in late 2018, asking me if I would be interested in beta-testing a top secret project: Their new state of the art power box AXIS. They sent me a beta version I have played around for a couple of weeks now.

My review sample being a beta version makes this review a bit special. Due to the NDA I signed, this review is purely based in my own experience. No testee panel members were involved. Also ElectraStim told me that the software was not 100% final so there might be minor changes or little glitches in the user interface for example. I did not encounter these glitches. However, I will update this review along the lines of the production unit’s “proper” testing. Finally, the packaging and what comes with the box was also not a 100% final. As soon as I receive the real deal, I will do an unboxing [Update Feb 3rd 2019: The unboxing of the production unit has been published].

With that in mind, let’s cut to the chase…

Construction & Operating AXIS

The design of the AXIS follows the one of the other ElectraStim power boxes: The case itself is a made out of a sturdy black polymer with a soft-touch surface. The control panel on the top is framed by a silver bezel while the panel itself has a silver-sparkling charcoal color. On top of the control panel there is a 35x20mm turquoise light LED matrix display. In the top left and top right corner a little number indicates the current power level of the left and right channel. Between them there is the current program set written and the battery level indicator. The lower 4/5th of the screen is divided by a dotter line which separates an area for each channel to visualize the stimulation and/ or output level of the currently selected program either through blinking or diameter-changing circles (wave and pulse set) or a bars (flick, tilt, proximity, microphone and line-in set). Below the display is the photocell which can detect proximity as well as movement direction up to 10cm distance.

The Control Panel of AXIS

The lower half of the panel is covered by the control buttons. On the left and on the right are the power up/ power down buttons for the two channels. When keeping the “Up” bottons pressed, there is a  1 1/2 second lag before the intensity goes up quickly which is a useful safety feature against operation errors. On the way down, the lag is considerably shorter with half a second. Though if something goes wrong, never turn the box down. Just pull the lead out of the socket. A weird quirk of AXIS is that the maximum intensity is set at level 50 instead of 99 or 100. This is not only counter-intuitive, but makes the communication when maxing the unit a bit awkward. “I took you all the way to 50.” does not really inspire. I already communicated this impression to ElectraStim and I hope they fix it in an update.

Detail of the 2mm Lead Sockets of AXIS

In the middle of the upper row is a button labeled “M” for going through the seven program sets (wave, pluse, flick, tilt, proximity, microphone and line-in) and finally the configuration menu. To choose a stimulation pattern inside a set, press the button with the two arrows forming a circle located just below the “M” button. In order to select it, leave the cursor on the setting for 3 seconds and it will be selected. When pressing the double arrow button while stimulation firing, it will take you to the selection menu of the current set. Every time a new stimulation pattern is selected, the output level is set to zero on both channels.  The lowest button is the power button which turns the unit on and off.

The rest of the box is fairly standard stuff: On top of the case there are two 2mm sockets for the leads, at the bottom there is a 3.5mm line-in, a micro-USB port for charging and the microphone.

Measuring just 112x70x23mm and weighing just 116g, the AXIS is the lightest and smallest of the high-end power boxes. This attribute is bought by the fact that instead of using 9V block batteries, the AXIS has built-in lithium-ion battery. Depending on the stimulation intensity, it will last for about 6 hours. However, if you run out of battery life mid scene, you are screwed. Not only do you have to have a power bank or a USB power supply and a micro-USB cable at hand but the unit can’t be used while charging! To get from zero to 80% takes about an hour, the last 20% will take an additional three.

Playing with AXIS

Little preview: The AXIS is currently the most versatile power box on the market. But this comes with a price: The Arduino inside the box takes 11 seconds to boot. What is extra irritating are the first 3.5 seconds until the display is initiated. During this time I often wondered if the box actually started or not.

The sophisticated hardware allows for some nice features. In the settings menu, there is a “Run Time” info which tells you how often you have powered up AXIS, how long you have used it in total and how long is has been since the box has been powered up this time. Especially for extreme e-stim aficionados is the “Nerd Mode”. It turn additional information of the current running programs of Wave, Pulse and Tilt on, like the frequency at the bottom of the screen, below the program visualization. In all modes there is a little thick bar at the bottom of the separation line in the middle of the screen. The higher the bar, the more energy is consumed.

Detail of the Display Reading of a Pulse Program in Nerd Mode

Usually in this part of an e-stim power box review comes the description of the programs. But AXIS has a whopping 47 (!) build in. So for the sake of reading flow, I put the large table below my conclusion box at the end of the article. What I found a bit disappointing was the fact that I could not modify any of the programs. I received the AIXS beta pack without a manual, so I had to discover the box and features on my own. When I turned on Nerd Mode with the details of the program displayed on the screen, I intuitively expected to be able to modify them. But no key combo worked. So I got in touch with ElectraStim and they confirmed that indeed the programs cannot be altered – yet. It is the beauty of the Arduino inside that it is such a powerful SoC which leaves space for development. The company said that the master mind behind AXIS’ development will look into adding the manipulation feature to the programs if possible.

My Run Time Statistic at the End of my Testing Period with the Beta Unit

In other e-stim power box reviews I already talked about in length what evil things can be done using a microphone (for example a self-enforcing circle of pain once the sub starts screaming), the line-in (like using a synthesizer to “play” your own programs) or the movement sensor. The newest sensor is the proximity sensor which yields hours of devious fun. Just to give you some ideas: Hold it in front of a pendulum, use your sub as a screaming “light barrier” at a passage or let him participate on another sub getting spanked or fucked by a fuck machine. Placing the motion sensor is a bit tricky and takes some time to figure out, but once figured out, it is a devilish tool.

Just like its (grand)father the SensaVox, AXIS s a very powerful unit! Using the ElectraStim Prestige ElectraLoops with a wave program, I started to notice the sensation with AXIS at 10% of the maximum intensity, while I had to take the E-Stim Systems 2b and the ErosTek ET312b up to 18% of the maximum intensity.

Detail of AXIS Bottom’s Interfaces from Left to Right: 3.5mm Jack for Audio Line-In, MicroUSB Port for Charging, two Microphones

Speaking of comparing it to the main competitors: What I personally did not miss but probably many will, is a remote control feature. With E-Stim Systems’ Connect service for the 2b, they set the bar for easy to use and powerful remote e-stim scenes. Maybe it will be one of the features added later in an update but. But if you are looking for a box for web cam scenes, look elsewhere. If you are looking for the most versatile, scene layout creativity inspiring and deviant e-stim power box out there, get AXIS!

ElectraStim will be accepting pre-orders starting Jan 7th 2019 and according to my latest information, they will start shipping on Jan 15th 2019. Furthermore, I have not yet been told the price. As soon as I get new pieces of information, I will publish them here and on Twitter.

First Look: E-Stim System Connect

Today at EroFame in Hannover, E-Stim Systems introduced a new way to remotely control their top range 2B power box. After basically spending the morning trying the new system out, let me give you a short intro how it works.

First, what do you need? The bottom obviously needs an E-Stim Systems 2b, their Digital Link Interface (already included in their 2B Bonus Pack formally know as the „Pro Pack“ which I reviewed here) and a computer. Currently the software and drivers are available for Windows 10 and macOS. They also supply a Linux software which is currently not yet supported. The top only needs a device connected to the internet with a browser, in this case a Samsung Android tablet.

After installing the drivers and the software, the bottom must connect his computer with the 2b using the USB cable and switch on the box.

After lunching the software and clicking the “Connect” button, it takes a few moments to pair the computer and the power box. This will only work when the computer is connected to the internet. Otherwise the status will stay “Not connected” even though the box and the computer are connected correctly.

Once this is done a 16 digit alpha-numerical code is display. Clicking on the number will copy the connection link which has to be sent to the top.

When clicking to the link, a website with the code already filled in opens. After the top clicks “Connect” the computer client’s indicator switches to “Connected”.

The website on the top’s device now allows to control all basic functions of the 2b like selecting the program, setting the output levels of the two channels or switching from low to high power modus.

Every input given on the website will also be displayed on the 2b’s screen.

Clicking “Stop” sets the output level on both channels to zero. The same happens when changing the program, just like when doing it on the 2b. What I am missing compared to their cold Commander software is a pop-up when (the sub) disconnects the box.

I was impressed how well the software worked on the release date. It is easy and intuitive to use and very responsive. Controlling the box in the same wifi and over mobile internet in the same country almost had no lag. I had a few problems with the desktop client crashing but no major issues. However, E-Stim Systems just announced the new service in a tweet which was to date retweeted twice until now and wrote nothing about it on their website’s landing page. On the 2b product page they still write about their now outdated “Commander” software. So I guess there were not that many people using their server. It remains to be seen how reliable the system works intercontinental or when the server are busy. I will revisit this review in a few months to give you an update.

Until then, I am very impressed by what they have done and it has given the 2b a real advantage towards their competitors. I can already see kinky geeks working on Linux based SBCs with 3G connection to create a mobile remote-controlled e-stim box.

If you are interested in the E-Stim System 2b, you can buy the Bonus Pack which comes with everything needed to connect it to your computer directly from E-Stim Systems for £378 or upgrade your existing 2b power box with the Bonus Pack for £89 or just by the Digital Link Interface for £69. The 2b Power Box and the Accessory Pack are also available at Mr S Leather for $399.95 resp $119.95.

Oxballs Shockballs

The Oxballs Shockball

Vendor: Ballistic Metal

Construction

Like all ball crushers the Shockballs has two plates measuring 189x129mm. The lower one is made out of 6mm thick black acrylic, the top one out of 5.5mm thick clear acrylic. In the upper half, there is a hole in each plate. The lower one of the entire junk, the upper one for just the dick. Both holes are nicely rounded and flawlessly deburred so there will be no unintended pain or injuries. To fit most dick and ball sizes, the Shockballs comes in three hole sizes: 31.7mm & 44.5mm, 38mm & 51mm and 44.5mm & 57.5mm which I have bought.

The plates are connected by a clear acrylic hinge at the top. At the bottom there are two M5 screws for pressing the top plate down on the balls using wings nuts. On the screws there are also nuts as an adjustable compression limiter.

Detail of the Electrodes‘ Upsight with the 4mm Sockets

Below the holes there are two aluminums clamps screwed onto the clear acrylic using three sleeve nuts. The nuts’ round-head are the contact points of the electrodes. To connect the electrode with the power box, there are 4mm holes to fit banana plugs drilled into the bottom of the clamps.

Playing with the Shockballs

The hinge is a blessing and a cruse: Usually with ball crushers your fiddle with two or even three pieces, always risking to pinch some skin. This won’t happen with the Shockballs. But: If the sub already has a full-grown boner it is almost impossible to get the dick through the designated hole so the crusher can’t be closed again. The hinge’s height also limits maximum squeeze to 18mm (and a minimum of 42mm). While that is enough for a strong compression feeling, it won’t cater to the total nut pain pigs who want their balls compressed paper thin.

Detail of the Electrodes‘ Contact Areas

So much for the bad news. The good news is: The toy as an awful lot of fun to play with. While yes, putting it on with a hard dick, especially larger ones, not having to deal with shifting, getting wedged plates made me use the Shockballs way more often than my other ball crushers – even just for crushing. On a more personal note, I also like the industrial look of the brushed aluminum clamps compared to the poles being on the base plate on other e-stim ball crushers which then feature clear top plates. Tough some testees did not like the somewhat obstructed the view on the compressed sack.

The e-stim sensation is generally starts out mostly smooth. But since there are only three contact points it quickly can be turned stingy when the intensity is increased. Since the contact area and mass on both poles is almost identical, the sensation is felt on both poles when connected to one channel of the power box. The most interesting/ deviant stimulation is putting a mass-rich counter pole (everything up from the E-Stim Systems Torpedo Large like the Stuffer or [X]L Black Collection) inside the sub so the stimulation is only felt at the balls. Then choose a program which alternates between the two channels (like HiFreq on the Erostok ET232) so the agony constantly jumps from one side to the other.

Detail of the Screws to Tighten the Crusher

It is general a good idea to put a flexible cockring around junk’s base to keep the balls from retracting back into the body. If a sub has smaller/ tighter balls, I also recommend to stretch his nuts with one of the many flexible cock rings/ ball stretchers from Oxballs. This way they won’t be squeeze through the dick or junk hole (whichever has more slack). If you are really mean, you use the Zapp or Volt to electrify also the ball’s neck.

Conclusion: Nicely looking, easy to handle e-stim ball stretcher – if the dick is soft.
Pros Cons Where to get Price
Easy to put on and comfortable to wear Balls’ compression is limited by hinge height Ballistic Metal $114.95
Quality electrodes
Difficult to put on when dick is already hard

Erostek ET312b

Vendor: Mr S (USA) and Regulation (EU)

The Erostek ET312b

Since the ET312b is sometimes considered not to be compliant with EU electronic device regulations, if shipping it to the EU I highly recommend ordering it from Regulation. I had several friends’ boxes ordered from the USA seized by customs.

Construction

The Erostek ET312b is probably one of the oldest e-stim power boxes which is still on the market. Its design has almost become iconic, the characteristic beige box having been featured on so many porn pics over the last decades – until Erostek changes the design a few years ago to a more stylish black. This design change lead to some discussion in my testee panel. Some – like me – prefer the new look because it fits the style of most playrooms and scene atmospheres. Other likes that the old box popped out and is indeed a classic. If you have an old box and want the new look, there is a kit to exchange the case – or do it the Trikoot way and use alkyd based paint to color the case in your signature color. The case has a rough texture which forgives finger prints while the control panel is still glossy. The box measures 205x157x65mm making is the largest of the e-stim power boxes. This is largely due to the lead acid battery which has a capacity of up to 48h. But which also makes the box with a weight 1.200g making it the heaviest box on the market. When the battery gets old, it can be replaced with a little bit of electro technical know-how but unlike the other boxes which are powered by 9v block batteries, if it runs out mid-scene in a club you can’t replace the battery instantly but have to use the power supply unit. Generally speaking, Erostek sales almost everything as spare parts. So if something gets broken and you are handy, you can fix it yourself.

Detail of the Control Panel

The entire front of the box is taken up by the control panel. The left third is for display information. On top there is a two-line green backlight LCD. Below it there is a hole through which you can adjust the screen’s contrast using a fine screw-driver (which is only necessary in extreme weather conditions) and two red LEDs which flash when channel A and/or B is firing. In the middle there are the main control buttons. The first horizontal pair are the grey buttons Menu and ok. Pressing Menu will get you to the advanced setting (see below) and OK will select the currently displayed menu point. Next to them are white buttons labeled Up and Down. In the menu they are used for navigating. Outside the menu, they are used to scroll through the box’s programs. Next to the Up key there are three rotary controls. The first is “Multi Adjust” to manipulate the current program, the other two are controlling the power level of channel A and B. Below the three knobs there is the power button which starts up the box, the link jack for connecting the ET312b with a computer, 3.5mm jack line-ins for the microphone and another one labeled “Audio”. I have tried the microphone and music on both jacks and got the same effects so I am not sure why there are two. Theoretically the mic should create very faint sensations when plugged into Audio but I did not experience that. Next are the two 3.5mm outputs for channel A and B and last the input for the power supply unit.

Detail of the Display

The ET312b comes with a few accessories: The power supply with adaptors for USA, EU and Canada, two 1.2cm long 3.5mm jack to 4mm banana plug leads, a 2m long line-in cable to connect you phone or MP3 player with the power box, a microphone with a 2.4m long cable and holdfast with a small glue patch to permanently position it somewhere in your playroom (though the holdfast is so flimsy and the glue to weak, I use adhesive tape to position and fix the mic in a suitable position for each scene) and an informative manual. What the ET312b doesn’t come with – unlike most other modern premium e-stim boxes – is a nice carrying case.

Playing with the Erostek ET312b

The ET312b is used like every other box. After pressing the power button a 3 second self-test is run after which the battery’s power level is displayed. After that connect the leads to the electrodes, connect them to the box, select a program and slowly turn the channel’s intensity up until the sub starts to feel someting.  The ET312b has 18 resp. 24 different programs. The last 6 programs are custom once which can be transferred onto the box using the ErosLink software. After selecting a new program there is a short ramping up period. This is to prevent too intense stimulation for the case the power level has not been turned down before the change. This is necessary because every program feels differently intense on the same power output level. The sensation of the programs can be adjusted by turning the Multi Adjust knob.

Program name Sensation Multi Adjust Effect
Waves Wave-like sensation with random wave length and intensity Speed of waves
Stroke Steady wave form on both channels Wave length
Climb Pulsed sensations that increases up to the maximum selected  intensity Climbing speed
Combo Sensation like wave program but changing between the channels Length of stimulation on both channels, simultaneous stimulation when turned all the way up
Intense Unmodulated waves Wave length and feel from soft to spiky
Rhythm Pulses of increasing sensation which’s output will increase each cycle Pulse length
Audio 1 Transforms audio input into same stimulation on both channels Selects input’s sensitivity level: Turn Multi Adjust until LEDs are flashing than start adjusting the channels’ intensity
Audio 2 Transforms left side audio signal into stimulation for channel A and right side for channel B
Audio 3 Transforms left side audio signal into stimulation for channel A and right side for channel B but process the waveform in a unique way
Split Channel A: Stroke, channel B: Waves Speed of waves & wave length
Random 1 Mixes patterns from the first 6 programs for a unique stimulation Alters selection variable
Random 2 Random stimulations at changing intervals No effect
Toggle Constant output on alternating channels Changing speed between the channels
Orgasm Ramping up pulses alternating between the channels Pluse frequency
Torment Brief stimulation bursts with random pattern and random breaks Pluse frequency
Phase 1 Allows for stimulation to be felt in three electrodes on the body Speed of changing between channels
You need special tri-phase cables to experience these channels
Phase 2 Adds changing intensity
Phase 3 Three programs on only two channels

With an output of 80 micro coulombs per pulse the ET312b is the most powerful unit in the market. Through the powerful battery it delivers this output regardless if running on battery or using the external power supply. While most subs do not really need the full power on most boxes, if you are having a real pain pig over, having the extra power in the backhand without having to change the electrodes is good.

Just like the E-Stim Systems 2b, the ET312b supports tri-phasing. This means using a special cable the stimulation can be felt at three areas using only a two channels. Since for this kind of stimulation there is an interaction between all three poles, never use it above the waist!

The Microphone which comes with the ET312b

What sets the ET3212b apart from all other power boxes currently available on the market are the advanced features which you can access through the menu button. These features can be used to customize the power box to your personal preferences like:

  • Turning the ramping after a program change on and off
  • Selecting which two programs should be run in split mode
  • Selecting which program the ET312b should be the default after starting up
  • Choosing a power level
  • Change the feeling of programs

As already mentioned Erostek also sells soft- and hardware to program the ET312b. Through the Eroslink software you can write new programs, alter existing programs also on the fly or choose from 25 new programs to fill the six “hidden” program slots in the menu. I have never used the software myself but tried it at a friend for a short time. While it is powerful, you need a lot of understanding how e-stim works (or trying out a lot on the fly) to really develop new routines. And while the interface is functional, it looks very Windows 95 – which explains why the connection to the box is done via a serial port… Especially if you look for remote control over the internet, take a look at the E-Stim System 2b.

Last but not least: Because the ET312b has been on the market for so long and through the advanced features is considered a “pro box” (even though most people probably will never use the features), sooner or later most e-stim enthusiasts will buy one of these boxes. These makes the ET312b the ideal choice for subs who host traveling tops because it is likely that the top will already know how to use the power box without an introduction.

Conclusion: Most powerful, most sophisticated, most widely used but most complicated power box.
