I’ve been curious about electro-play for some time . . . curious because I have often been asked about it by prospective submissives . . . but the only Electro-Stim toy in my Mistresses-box up until now (my Cockshocker) has proved a little too extreme for most of them.
So I was delighted to receive the Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Fantasy Wand from my favourite on-line Kink store, Uberkinky, not only because of it’s description as being “perfect for electro-sex beginners”, but also because it allows hand-held, rather than fixed strap-on, use. There are lots of different electro-stim devices and apparatus at electro sex pages, but from the look and design of the Fantasy Wand, I felt it would be ideal for a little more “sympathetic” control.
The Wand is nicely packaged in a glossy cardboard box with excellent illustrative instructions and tips printed on the reverse and sides. But I must admit that when I first unwrapped the wand from it’s bubble-wrapping, the plastic-moulded shaft itself did feel a little “cheap”. However, once I overcame that initial disappointment, it is light and easy to hold and is certainly simple to operate with a large control button which allows one to cycle through nine different levels of intensity. Each level is indicated by a red LED number which displays at the top of the switch as it changes. The power, or charge, is provided by one normal AA Alkaline battery which slides into a compartment on the base of the handle. The battery is not supplied by-the-way, so you would have to purchase that separately, (or borrow from one of your other battery operated toys, or household items).
The wand itself is just over 6 inches long but is supplied with three different, detachable, heads which screw onto the top of the wand and each gives a slightly different sensation, particularly at the lower intensity settings*. The flat head (30mm square) has five rows of what I would describe as small “spikes” raised above the surface. They are actually very small but give the feeling of “sparking-pinpricks” on contact. The larger cylindrical head (40mm long and around 60mm in circumference at its widest point) gives a more tangible “jolt”, whilst the smaller, rounded head (10mm in diameter) has a more “tingling” sensation. *These three, distinct, sensations are more discernible at the lower intensity settings because, for me at least, if the intensity is set on the higher level of 8 or 9, my own uncontrollable reaction is to pull away immediately on contact . . . without wanting to try and differentiate on the specific sensation! I am obviously an electro-sissy and not capable, in any way, of being on the receiving end!!!
And I know this because I found it quite tricky initially to operate the wand. Not tricky in the sense of turning it on, or selecting the level I wanted to dish-out, but tricky in the actual application . . . because in order to discharge-the-charge, one has to firmly hold the head of the wand against the receivers skin, and not just tap it against the skin as I kept wanting to do. I think the anticipation of imagining that the receiver would immediately “jump” meant that initially I was involuntarily just tapping the head on my sub’s flesh and not holding it down, firmly in place. So, of course, I was pulling the head away far too quickly for it to actually discharge.
But once I mastered my rhythm of application . . . I actually found it quite fun to watch and apply as my “testing-assistant” jumped and exclaimed . . . and described the sensation of each charge. Oh, and there is no need to worry about over-doing the charge, because simply holding down the button for more than a few seconds automatically turns the wand off. I found this a bit tricky to master at first as well, but . . . practice makes perfect!
I did learn rather quickly though, to not touch the “receiving” partner or submissive, with my free hand because that obviously completes an electrical circuit, or contact, and sent a surging jolt right back to me! So be warned, if you are an electro-sissy like me, apply . . . but don’t touch . . .
Uberkinky do say that conductivity can be improved by applying some electro-gel to the receiver’s skin . . . and whilst I haven’t used a specific electro-gel, I have found that applying some normal water-based lube has a similar affect.
Now I realise that real aficionados of electro-stim will probably consider The Uberkinky Fetish Fantasy Shock Therapy Fantasy Wand as a rather inconsequential toy . . . and I also realise that electro-play will certainly not be for everyone, especially as we all have different levels, or limits, as to what we like or can take. But, after a bit of practice, I’ve actually found it to be quite a lot of fun. And I think the different intensity levels and settings, also make it a useful starting toy for some sexy playtime fun with one’s own partner. It even comes with a small black-out mask to heighten the intensity with the extra-fun element of surprise.

The Modesty Video Review: To possibly follow, so just let me know if you are interested. (P.s. It does already feature in one of my private videos!)
The Modesty Rider:
I realise, of course, that there are already thousands of long-established Sex Toy Reviewers and Review sites . . . most of whom will be far more adept at explaining all the technical details and specifications of things. But for me, sexy clothes and lingerie, sexy toys . . . and even sexy books . . . are all about adding a little fun and excitement to things. So that is how I tend to approach my reviews and videos!!! Just to explain “how it was for me” in a fun, and light-hearted, way without taking things too seriously! Chances are that if something makes me giggle and tingle and feel good, it will score higher on my Modesty Rating.
