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.

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.

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.

Conclusion: An evolution in quality and performance of an iconic toy while losing a bit of the original’s uniqueness
Pro Cons Where to get Price
Very smooth sensation Through stiff neck probably not the “World’s MOST Comfortable” butt plug anymore E-Stim Systems Medium: £104.95
Large: £114.95

Best for Self Play – E-Stim

The ElectraStin AXIS in the Original Case

Yesterday, I have given you a short tour through the reviews for your anal needs. Today, I am going to look at E-Stim, probably the second most popular toy category for self play.

Let’s start with the basics: For E-Stim play you need a power box which creates the electric waves and electrodes which deliver it to your body. You always need a pair of electrodes since the currency flows from one pole to another. If you want to dive deeper into the intricacies and safety guidelines of E-Stim, take a look at my E-Stim 101.

As most of you are asked to stay at home, some of you are starting to get adventurous and curious about E-Stim play. So one of the most often asked questions is “Which box to start out with?” I recommend the E-Stim Systems Pebble. With two channels, it is already equipped to stimulate two body regions or two partners at once, yet easy to use and has some fun programs build into it.

The E-Stim Systems 2b remotely controlled by a Tablet over the Internet

For more elaborate play, there are two options I would recommend: On the one hand there is E-Stim Systems’ 2b which is their top of the line. Besides many, easy to manipulate and this versatile programs, they offer an easy to use and reliable online „Connect“ control feature to remotely controlled cam sessions. If you do not have a cam or online master buddy, on the other hand, there is the ElectraStim AXIS. Their new flagship model offers a bunch of innovative sensors like a motion or an proximity sensor. With a little creativity, you can create enough entropy to get the feeling someone else is in control of the box.

The E-Stim System Black Collection Bi-Polar Butt Plugs

Once you have found your preferred box, you need some electrodes. If you want to stick something up your butt (or pussy) and amongst other sensation want to feel like you are getting fucked by the e-stim, you have to get one of the many different E-Stim System insertable electrodes. Made out of aircraft grade aluminum, they are virtually indestructible. I almost have a dozen of those and they are worth every cent! Another essential tool are cock loops, like the ElectraStim Prestige ElectraLoops. They are easy and effective and depending on their position on your junk create different sensations. Just play around with them! In order not to short-circuit your power box, make sure that two loops on the same channel do not touch. I usually use one of my many simple Oxballs cockrings (I just realize, I need to review some of the more basic ones I have in my collection) for that. Speaking of Oxballs, I achieved my first hands free e-stim orgasm by placing their Zap on my glans, one electrode at the frenulum, the other on the top of the head. I think only Ballistic Metal sells those anymore. But you can easily construct a similar toy with one of the simple Oxballs cockrings and two of their Volt electrodes.

The Oxballs Shockball

When you want to step beyond the pleasure aspect of e-stim and really enter the realm of pain, Oxballs offers an intense tool to crush and fry your balls with the Shockballs e-stim ballcrusher – also I think only available at Ballistic Metal, the manufacturer, anymore. If you capitalize the C in CBT, take a look at the E-Stim Systems Vyper (XL) to set the nerve endings along your dick’s shaft on fire! If all of those tools don’t make you scream, your last resort is the E-Stim Systems Duo Pinwheel. Especially when playing alone, I recommend only using the Duo version of their electrified pinwheels because they are safe to use and the tiny contact area and mass make them a devious toy to play with.

The next part of this little series will be about CBT, edging and milking toys.

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.

Detail of the Two Banana Jacks

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.

 

Conclusion: Easy and all-over-the-body to use skin electrode for intense pain
Pro Cons Where to get Price
Extremely painful on small area Only stingy sensation possible E-Stim Systems £49
Can be used all over the body
Studier build and easier to control than monopole version    

The End of Kinky Tumblr – A Personal Farewell

It has been three weeks since Tumblr announced that they would be banning NSFW content on their platform from December 17th on. Until this point the platform was one of the largest – if not the largest – collection of porn in human history. But the moment the news hit the scene, not only a ludicrous discussion about freedom of speech and censorship started[i] but people back-up their data and deleted their blogs. The exodus of active users, one star reviews in the app stores and steeply dropping numbers of blogs and app downloads apparently hit Tumblr so hard that they were forced to release a spurious statement that they would not be deleting but instead hiding stuff and that people can still leave their content on the platform – though nobody could see it anymore. Naturally this did not stop people from leaving Tumblr. At this moment a number of different websites are competing for the users looking where to display and consume their porn elsewhere, but no major one has emerged yet.

Being a big opponent of Facebook’s policies, I never used any of their services, including WhatsApp and Instragram. I have been on Twitter for ages, first with a vanilla account and when I started to set up ToyTorture.com with a kinky account. Tumblr followed some time later when I realized that Twitter was not the best place to present kinky pics. 

Tumblr opened up a whole new world of kink to me. The aesthetic inspired me for pictures, the play setups gave me ideas which toys to get and the perversions sparked interests in trying out new things. It also quickly became an important social media channel for ToyTorture.com. Not only gave the large followership and reblogs my reviews a big exposure but the message and chat feature over time became the largest inbox for reader questions. Since this website is my love child, a single-person operation into which flows a lot of my time, sweat, tears and love, knowing that a lot of people read what I write and getting feedback from my readers means a lot to me. Tumblr helped with that.

Last but not least, the affiliate links for Mr S, Regulation and E-Stim Systems I posted under the posts created a little flow of store credit. It was always my plan to make ToyTorture.com an ad free website to keep it independent. Despite all the critic I get for “promoting” certain products and manufacturers through Desiderates and Christmas gift tips, etc. it is still my personal taste and my wishes as a private person, pervert and toy collector which influences the toy selection and not some corporation urging me to post stuff in order to make money. Because of that, ToyTorture.com actually costs me some money for the server and despite a little stream of review samples a lot of money to buy the toys I review. The affiliate programs gave me store credit help me to buy stuff people are keen in reading a review about even when I am not that interested in the toy that I would spend my hard earned money on it. With Tumblr dying, I am certain my affiliate income will drop and thus limit the range of toys I will be able to review.  

At the time when this blog post will be published, my Tumblr account is still active. I am astonished how many surprisingly sexual pictures are still visible to the public. But still… Tumblr feels barren these days. For years, the Tumblr app on my tablet was my go-to app when I was up WAY too early because of my insomnia. After the purge it is still a collection of hot pics but a lot is missing. It does not feel whole(some) anymore. Having “only” lost 25% of my followers and actually gaining new ones every day (probably flocking to the blogs which still have a decent amount of original pictures), it would probably still be worth to put content on there. On the other hand, the entire controversy spoiled my mood to post content there.

So I guess, I should delete my blog, taking a stand against SESTA and FOSTA and the frightening amount of sex-negativity and conservatism creeping into many societies these days by attacking Tumblr where it hurts them the most: Their ad revenue. To start the new year with a clean slate, I will be deleting ToyTorture.tumblr.com on January 1st 2019.

All the content I posted on Tumblr will probably surface somewhere else as soon as the dust has settled and a new major place-to-be for all the perverts will emerge. In the meantime, follow me on Twitter for content and the latest update where to find my smut. And if you are planning to buy something at Mr S Leather, Regulation or E-Stim System, take a detour over my website and click on one of the links in this article or the banners on the right sidebar. You comments, retweets and affiliate clicks keep ToyTorture.com alive. Thank you for your support and see you soon – where ever this will be.

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.

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.

Vyper XL

The E-Stim Systems Vyper XL

Vendor: E-Stim System

Construction

The basis of the Vyper is a rectangular piece of 8mm thick, black, polished plastic which measures 220x145mm. On top of this base plate two pairs of golden sheet electrodes are mounted, each sheet measuring 80x28mm. Using four 55mm long M6 screws a clear 110x110mm and 5mm thick plastic plate can be fixed on top of the base plate and tightened using butterfly nuts. There are two of these plates so the entire base plate can be covered. Depending on the bottom’s dick size, one or two places can be used to torment his dick. At the bottom of the clear plates, the same electrode layout as on the base plate can be found.

There are four terminal pairs on the top and two pairs on the bottom below the upper pair of a compression plate. There is a connection between the upper and lower terminals so even if you don’t attach leads to the lower ones, stimulation will come from the lower electrodes.

Detail of a Terminal a Screw for Tightening the Upper Plate onto the Dick

On top of the board there is a little eyelet through which either rope can be threaded or a carbineer attached. Since the total weight of the toy is 650g, it is a good idea to have something which keeps the Vyper from moving around and thus putting the dick in an unwanted location.

For more compact play luggage E-Stim Systems also offers a short version called “Vyper 2” which is half the size of the Vyper XL reviewed here.

Playing with the Vyper XL

There are two ways of wiring the Vyper: The quick and easy and the more elaborate way. The quick and easy way is always connecting a yellow and a black terminal to one channel of your electro powerbox. This way the simulation direction is left and right and you rule out any chance of short-circuiting your power box. For the more elaborate way, you connect the two alike-colored terminals above each other for a top-bottom-stimulation. In this case you need to place small rubber patches where the top terminals connect to the lower electrodes. Otherwise you will short-circuit your power box! While most premium e-stim boxes can withstand this stress, it is not good for the hardware. Also, you won’t feel almost any stimulation regardless of the power level. Furthermore, make sure that the dick touches the panel you connect the box to. This is especially important with less well-endowed subs.

Detail of how the Upper Terminal connect to the Lower Sheet Electrodes

After the technicalities have been taken care of, now on to the fun stuff. The sensation produced by the Vyper actually depends on the dick size. Since the electrodes have very small mass, the more of the dick covers them, the smoother is the sensation. This leads to interesting mind games: Either endure the dick being pressed more severly for a smother sensation or take less pressure but more stingy e-stim. When compressing the dick, taking it slow and not to extremes is wise. Ironically the cavernous bodies are more sensitive to compression than the balls so do not tighten the top plates to the max. It is actually useful to add a nut or two as a safety barrier. The sensation can be made a bit smoother using conductive lube.

Through the Vyper’s unique layout, it takes a bit of time and experimenting which programs wired which way works best for your sub. For me, programs I never found enjoyable suddenly made sense using the Vyper XL. Playing a little bit with pressure during play – like tightening the lower or loosening the upper plate to “squeeze” an orgasm out of the sub – is also a lot of fun. One sub even managed to cum inside the Vyper just from e-stim.  If you have a “larger” sub, taking single plates off opens a hole new range of play possibilities. Either just fry the glans or polish and sound it while the shaft gets all the stimulation.

Details of a Sheet Electrode Pair

For even more varied CBT scenes, the Vyper can be used without the top plates. Simply use rope or elastic bands to keep the dick pressured against the base plate’s poles while you torment the shaft and glans with (e-stim) pinwheels, pegs, a violet wand or impact play. You can even use wax though it is a pain in the ass to clean off!

Speaking of cleaning, after play spray the exposed areas with a sanitizer and wipe it off afterwards. If you used large amounts of lube, your sub came all over the place or through other means it has gotten completely messy/ dirty, soak it in warm water with dish soap and use a soft sponge. However, take extra care when trying. With so many little gaps and holes, water can linger and cause corrosion!

Conclusion: Unique, little bit bulky design for interesting new, rather stingy e-stim sensations.

E-Stim Systems Black Collection

The E-Stim System Black Collection Bi-Polar Butt Plugs

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

2 ½ years ago E-Stim System introduced their Red Collection, a more “sculptural” approach to their popular (and by me highly praised) bi-polar electrodes. While I liked the shape of the electrodes, the design with red velvet colored isolators and mirror-shine finished poles did not really appeal to the “rough” look I like in my toys and playroom. Also, the sizes were quite “Lady-like”. Naturally I was excited when they turned their Bobble into the Black Collection.

Construction

The basic design are two beads stuck onto each other. They are separated by a black plastic neck which serves as an isolator between the two poles. At the bottom the lower bead tapers into a base which has the same diameter as the beads. Around the base run three (resp. four on the XL) groves for better grip even with lubey fingers. Into the base’s bottom a 4mm hole to plug in 4mm banana plugs is drilled. The plugs are available in four sizes.

S M L XL
Diameter 42mm 50mm 54mm 60mm
Height 113mm 131mm 146mm 160mm
Diameter 1st Neck 26mm 30.5mm 34mm 37.5mm
Distance to 1st Neck 42mm 50mm 54mm 60mm
Diameter 2nd Neck 26mm 30.5mm 36.5mm 39mm
Distance to 2nd Neck 83mm 96mm 103mm 113mm
Weight 330g 520g 720g 970g

Detail of the Satin Finish

The upper bead is connected the lower part by a stainless steel screw. At its bottom there is a 4mm hole to connect the upper pole to the power box using 4mm banana plugs. To not short-circuit the e-stim box, the screw-head is isolated with a white plastic separator from the base. Around the banana plug socket these is a little hexagonal socket for easier disassembly when cleaning. This socket is highly useful because the screw is harder than the aluminum the electrode is made out off so it will dig into the material. I have older electrodes which do not have this socket and which have become almost un-screwable.

Like all premium bi-polar electrodes the Black Collection is made out of aircraft grade aluminum which is perfectly finished in E-Stim System’s satin matt finish. Since I have already gotten some reader questions about this topic I want to stress that the toys are indeed silver colored and not like in the promotion pictures black.

Playing with the Black Collection

For basic information on how the bi-polar electrodes perform and how to choose the right size, please check out one the review of other models I have published some time ago. Here I want to talk about how the interesting design produces unique sensations.

The Bi-Polar Plug Disassembled for Cleaning

What sets the Black Collection apart from all other bi-polar anal electrodes I have seen so far is that the split between the two poles is at the top instead of the bottom. So when lying down you can choose either choose between pushing it in all the way to the second neck or let the sphincter wrap around the isolator on the first neck. In this position all stimulation is focused on the sphincter, just like with the Micro. But through the larger mass and surface area the sensation is smoother.  Since the mass center unlike the other electrodes is on the outside the sensation feels… in lack of better words inverted. This is especially interesting when a wave program is used for a fucking sensation. It is still a fucking but with a new, different twist.

When sitting, standing or walking the electrode should be pushed in all the way. Especially when not sitting, the mass center outside the body will make it very likely that the electrode will fall out of the ass otherwise. Pushed in all the way, the sensation moves from the sphincter inside the body. This is a weird feeling, because the stimulation feels like a big, massive surface electrode but isn’t experienced on the skin. Again, it is hard to describe, but it adds a new sensation to the e-stim repertoire.

Detail of the 4mm Socket for the Banana Plug and the Hex Key

Especially the two largest electrodes have enough weight to develop an own movement momentum when the sub’s body moves, for example through walking or making him jump from the stimulation inside him. Depending on the rectum’s physiology the electrode will start to tumble, adding a physical sensation to the fact that electro stimulation flashes up on different areas on the bowel mucosa. Depending on the sub’s anatomy, the upper bead can lay on top of the prostate. So just like when a Classic hits the prostate, only using the upper pole in combination with a pad electrode attached to the perineum above the prostate is an interesting way of tormenting this sensible body part. Some subs can even be trained to get milked that way.

Finally, let’s take a look o how the Black Collection’s plugs perform just as anal toys without added e-stim. While they are fun to ride for more experienced anal players, they are good for training new fistees. Slowly fucking the hole with the two beads will teach the hole to open up and close again, even when the entering object is relatively dull. The beads are also perfectly designed to stimulate the prostate; one testee even developed a technique to how to thrust and twist the plugs just right to prostate-milk his chastity sub.

Conclusion: Uniquely designed high quality bi-polar anal electrode.
