Electric Play

Electric Play is a BDSM practice, which involves impact by electric current. Electric play can be used for serious pain effects, and can be a predominantly psychological game, still being an extreme and dangerous practice.

 

Technique of impacts and safety in games with electricity. Relatively safe equipment for games with electricity is the so-called "magic wand" (it is also a Violet Wand). Nevertheless, when using it, general safety rules regarding health restrictions (heart and many other diseases), as well as all the following restrictions at the place of application, must be observed. More complex uses of electricity in BDSM require a good knowledge of the physical and medical aspects, as well as the ability to carry resuscitation out.

 

For such more complex plays with electricity, it is optimal to use electrodes attached to the body, attached to TENS (a device for percutaneous electromyostimulation). In combination with a myostimulator gel electrodes or rubber electrodes are usually used, which can be supplemented with options of its own design. One electrode is fixed to the body and the other is touched in different places, changing the frequency of the current and power.

 

As a rule, all manipulations are carried out in rubber gloves. It is important to note that for games with a current, in any case, only the power from the battery or capacitor is used.  It is not possible to use power from the network (via transformer) - for any reliability, its breakdown is possible.  Do not connect the injected needles because the resistance of vessels is minimal and the internal electrode causes a strong uncontrolled effect even when connecting a small household battery. You need to understand how the current affects a person, and how to provide first aid. Danger of electric current for the human body is determined mainly by the magnitude of the current flowing between the electrodes. What is important is the way the current flows, as well as the electrical resistance. Resistance of the mucosa is much less than the skin's, and resistance of the wet skin is less that dry one.  As a limiting safe value in painful practices you can use a current of up to 10 mA. It should be borne in mind that different people have different sensitivity to current! More sensitive people can lose consciousness even with such little force. Current begins to be felt from 1mA, the pain appears at 5mA, a current of 7mA can be considered the maximum permissible for most women, and 10mA is the maximum permissible for men. Current of 15 mA harms health, and 30 mA causes breathing disorders, right up to the paralysis of the respiratory muscles - reversible, however, with the provision of medical care.

 

There are a number of limitations on the electrodes locations: it is necessary to take into account the path of the current between them.  In particular, it is strictly forbidden to conduct current through the head, neck or heart. If the current determines safety, then, for example, the frequency of the current determines the intensity of the impact. If you set the frequency to 25 Hertz, this means that the bottom will receive 25 strokes per second. Current frequency of the myostimulators can vary from 0.1 Hz to 100 Hz. It is recommended to test the effect on yourself before exposure to the bottom. Another danger is that electricity causes uncontrolled contractions of muscle fibers. An incorrectly fixed bottom can get a rupture of ligaments. Rules described here are only a very brief summary. It is necessary to consult with an experienced subject member, or to study detailed manuals.
