E-Stims System Mirco, Classic Medium and Magnum Medium Bipolar Plugs

E Stim Electrodes

Vendor: E-Stim Systems

When I started purchasing electrodes for my E-Stim box a good friend and top of mine recommended the bipolar ones from E-Stim Systems. Knowing that my anus isn’t really trained I started off with the Classic Medium but soon purchased the Micro and the Magnum Medium to have a bit more of a choice when tormenting mine or other people’s asses.

Because the electrodes are quite similar I decided to review them all at once and go into detail about the individual differences in the play section.


All electrodes reviewed in this article are from their premium range, meaning they are made out of stainless steel with high quality plastic as insulator. Due to the high quality and robust materials the electrode will probably outlive you. And if it doesn’t E-Stim Systems has a lifetime guarantee for their premium electrode.

A disassambled Magnum MediumThe plugs are made in a five-piece constriction: First there is a stainless steel base with a plastic inset. Through this inset a stainless steel screw put which first goes through a black (in case of the Mirco white) barrel shaped piece of plastic and is finally screwed to the head. There is a 4mm drilling hole at the bottom of the base and the screw where you put standard 4mm banana plugs in order to connect the electrode with your e-stim box. When cleaning your electrode after playing simply take out the cable, disassemble the electrode and wash it with warm water using soap.

Bottom view with 4mm Drilling HolesThe stainless steel surfaces comes in a standard brushed finish which gives it a very sleek, modern and sleek appearance. When you order the electrodes directly from E-Stim’s website you can also order all electrodes in a polished version for a 10% premium. It is hard for me to recommend a surface treatment: As a jeweler sales assistant I know that a polished surface won’t show scrates as easily as a brushed one (If you are interested to know why, send me an e-mail), but personally I prefer the look of the brushed stainless steel. And if you are not ordering your toys directly from their website you will most likely only have the option of getting the brushed finishes.

Playing with them

First a advice how to read this section: I will only discuss how the physical properties influence the sensation. The sensation itself depends very much on your e-stim box and the program you select.

When choosing the right electrode before play there are two important things to keep in mind:

  1. Standard and Low Profile CablesThe Material: Unlike other soft materials like vinyl or silicone most anal toys are made out off stainless steel will not yield! So if you can barely fit a 38mm vinyl plug into your ass taking the Magnum Medium for example will at least take some training.
  2. The Handling: A lot of people put condoms over their anal toys when switching partners. The condom’s latex layer will at best alter the way the current flows thus might produce unwanted effects, at worst no current will flow at all. But because the stainless steel is easily cleaned and disinfected this isn’t a big issue if you clean your toy thoroughly after using it on one partner. When it comes to lube I would always recommend water-based lube. The glycerin in the lube will help the current flow from the metal to the skin. A thick layer of silicone lube can produced unwanted effect.
    There are specialized electro lubes out there but in my opinion they are overrated. For my sessions I use Swiss Navy water based lube. It keeps it gliding properties for a long period of time and transmits current very well.

Generally speaking when it comes to electrodes: The larger the mass and the contact area the “smoother” the sensation will be. Furthermore you will only feel the sensation at the pole with the lower mass which isn’t important for bipolar electrodes because most people can’t tell if the electro sensation is on the inner or outer side of their anus.

In order to insert an electro plug warm it up a bit up to body temperature, plug in the cables, put some lube only on the head of the electrode and gently push it into your anus. Because unlike other bipolar electrodes the base and the head is connected by a solid connection pushing it in is easy. Now connect the cable to your electro box and start the stimulation. Each of the three plugs produces a different sensation:

  1. The MicroThe Micro: Through its small size and short neck the Micro sits directly on your sphincter and only stimulates there. The small mass results in a fine line between interesting and unique buzzing feeling directly inside your anus between a challenging and also unique torture of this body part. But the size is also a problem: When your ass can take dildos from 3cm diameter on or if the Micro is lubed very well it will almost instantly slip out of your ass. I would advice maintaining light pressure on the electrode until you sit or lie down.
  2. The Classis MediumThe Classic Medium: Through its size it is easily inserted even into untrained asses. The even mass distribution between neck and head and larger mass compared to the Mirco results in a wider range of pleasurable experiences when turning up the power. The pièce de résistance of the Classic range are their three different lengths: When sitting on it, it will press onto your prostate. You just need to find the right length.
  3. The Magnum MediumThe Magnum Medium: Through its big mass the sensation feels smoother and a bit more even than the previous two ones. Of cause you need more power from the box to produce the same stimulation level. I wouldn’t recommend this electrode for a box with a low output. Through its size and weight in addition to the electro sensation you get a feeling of fullness inside your rectum. While walking the mass will develop some moving momentum and will most likely hit your prostate which has its own appeal.

Low Profile Cables pluged into the MicroE-Stim Systems claims on their website that none of the electrodes I own are designed for low profile cables. I have made my own low profile cables and the fit without a problem on the Mirco and the Magnum and with a bit of pressure on the Classic. If you want to sit on or lie down while using the electrode you need low profile banana plugs so you need to try out which works best for you.

Low Profile and Standard Cables plugged into a Magnum Medium and a MicroOf cause you can use the electrode also as a monopole. Just plug one banana plug into the anal electrode and the other one onto another electrode, a pin wheel or a rubber loop for example.  Another usage for the electrodes is using them as standard stainless steel plugs for long term wearing. Because the connection between the head and the base in not flexible you will probably get tired of wearing it sooner than when wearing a plug with a flexible connection.

Conslusion: High quality and versatile plugs not only made for e-stim.

E-Stim Systems 1 ¼ Inch Flanged Bipolar Electrode

Mock Up Electrode compared to exising Products

This is a first time in the desiderate section: I am not only wanting a specific toy, I am (hopefully) helping designing one. As you can read here I am a big fan of the E-Sim System’s premium bipolar electrode. They are comfortable to wear and will probably outlive me.

Outline of 1,25 Inch ElectrodeBecause E-Stim Systems is based in the United Kingdom they use the imperial measurement system thus their products come in sizes 1”, 1,5” and 2” (and of cause much, much bigger). At least in my opinion this leads to very big gaps between the different sizes: While a n electrode with a  1” diameter is easily inserted (and most likely will as easily fall out again), one with a 1,5” diameter is for people with an untrained anus already a struggle, especially when it comes to Flanged series which has dull heads.

I have always liked the concept of their flanged, easy to sit on electrodes, especially in combination with a remote controlled box. But all electrodes in the range were either too small (the difference between the head and the neck with the Flange is so little it will most likely fall out of your ass when you walk) or too big. So I am hoping that in some point of time they will start manufacturing a 1 ¼” electrode: Not too big to cause any bigger problems when inserting but with a large enough difference between the head and the neck to walk around freely without having to fear approx. 220g of Steel falling out of your ass. In the end it is in your hands to get it into production: I have talked to the guys at E-Stim Systems. If enough people demand a product they will put it into production.

For over 10 years unboxings have been an essential part of review blogs and I always wanted to do one. But sadly most toys come without packaging or just a plastic bag so there is not much to unbox. As some people might already know I have recently found an interest in electro sex and have started to buy some accessories for my box to get. YngMstrDetroit introduced me to a bipolar cockring I also wanted to get. While browsing on Amazon.com I stumbled across Lybaile’s “Man Power” device which features two cockrings which looked like the one he used. Today the parcel arrived. Let’s see what’s in there.

Back of the box

Back of the box

The first impression is… interesting. A very colorful packaging with a lot of characters – I guess Chinese (if anybody reads this and can actually understand what is written there, please let me know). There is also some English on the front and the bag which translation isn’t too bad – in opposite to the German on the side.

Inside the packaging there is a plastic container with the toy and accessories and a manual both in English and in Chinese. The manual is for every attachment they sell for the device and with my non-nativespeaker skills I would say that the translation is way better than on the packaging.

Content of the box

How everything is packed up

The toy consists out of a power unit, a supplied battery, a cable with a 2,5mm jack on the one side and 4 2mm pin connectors on the other side as well as two bipolar cockrings in approx. 40mm and 50mm inside diameter.

And quite interesting manuel

The power unit feels extremely light even with the small and light battery inside so there can’t be much technology in there. What looks like a big button on top is just for the looks. It can’t be pressed, doesn’t light up or does anything else. On the front of the device there is the jack output and on the opposite side a wheel to turn the device on and regulate intensity. Left of the jack output is a switch for slow and fast, right of it one for in and out – what ever that means. You also find a ring to attach the device to your key ring right next to the jack output, so it can conveniently mess with your jack.

The two cockrings are quite different in quality: The larger one seems to be made perfectly while the smaller one shows sloppy workmanship: The isolating silicone (?) doesn’t cover the conductive part on the bottom of the pin connection point and meanders a bit towards the head where the pin connector points are. But since the connectors seal off the conductive are on the bottom and because guessing from the drawing on the packing this small ring is designed to be fitter to your cock shaft,  I think there shouldn’t be problems with unwanted currency flowing. When put on both rings feel comfortable.

The big question is: How does this cheap thing work. Answer: I don’t know for two reasons:

  1. I don’t have any conductive lube so I couldn’t give it a proper test.
  2. I am scared to use this device. If the quality of the power unit is only half as good as the translation of the Chinese text, I am probably in for a surprise – don’t know if good or bad. So if any top out there feels the urge to tie me down and try it out on my, I might consider it.

As for the cockrings: As soon as I get my decent power box and my hands on some lube they will be reviewed properly.
