E-Stim: Spark Up Your Sex Life

Thursday, April 27th, 2017


Ever heard of electro stimulation? It goes by a few other names: Transcutaenous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (TENS) and E-Stim being the most common. If it sounds like some sort of complicated medical treatment, you’d be partly right. Medical professionals use TENS devices to send electrical currents through the injured part of the body and patients have said that this can greatly reduce, and in some cases, even cure their pain completely. Basically (and this is very simplified science, here), the feelings of “pleasure” that the device provides move faster to the brain than those of “pain”, thereby blocking the brain from feeling the pain of the injury.

But why write about E-Stim on a sex blog? Because E-Stim devices and toys have become a worldwide sexual phenomenon! Individuals and couples are introducing low voltage E-Stim devices and toys into the bedroom and finding it to be a uniquely pleasurable experience. Read on to have all your questions about E-Stim answered and maybe you’ll want to try it out, too.

Isn’t this a BDSM thing?

People have been using electricity for sexual stimulation for decades and it’s true that we usually picture it as part of the BDSM scene. E-Stim devices set at the highest intensities can provide pain (if that’s what you’re looking for) but a more sensual teasing, pulsing or tickling is much more common.

So, how does it work?

There are billions of nerves in the human body, many of which are found in the erogenous zones. To stimulate these nerves, you’ll need an E-Stim device like the Mystim Tension Lover. This is the power source. From this, you connect either your basic electrodes (included with the Mystim Tension Lover) or one of the many E-Stim toys sold separately. You place the electrodes on the area you’d like to stimulate and turn the device onto the lowest setting, adjusting as desired.

The electrical current will flow between these two electrodes, stimulating the tissue in between. For example, you can place one electrode on the top of the penis and one on the underside, or one on the inner thigh and one on the labia or perineum. You can even use all four included electrodes at once, remembering that one pair will be “positive” and one pair “negative”, meaning that the current will flow between these pairs.

But what does it feel like?

That depends on the device and the settings you choose to use. The feeling of E-Stim can range from a gentle tickling, to a sensual pulsing, to strong muscle contractions (as if your body were experiencing an orgasm).

That’s not to say that E-Stim is a way to achieve instant orgasms. It is a uniquely stimulating experience that feels great and may intensify orgasms if used in conjunction with your other favourite methods.

I tried a tester in store and I got a zap. What’s that about?

Remember that the electrical current always needs somewhere to go. For example, using an E-Stim vibrator to tease the outside of the body won’t work (and, yes, may give you a little zap!) because both conductive plates of the toy need to be touching skin in order to have the proper effect. If in doubt, ask a store employee to help.

That all sounds great, but it still sounds a little dangerous.

Using something like electricity in sexual stimulation always carries a bit of risk, but as long as you follow a few safety guidelines, you’ll have no problems.

  1. Never attach electrodes or use an E-Stim toy on the chest, head or throat as this can interfere with the naturally occurring electrical currents of the heart and brain or, in the case of the throat, cause muscle spasms that can lead to asphyxiation. There are some E-Stim toys that are safe for the chest (e.g, The Barry Bite Body Clamps), but make sure to read all instructions carefully before use.
  2. If you have a pacemaker, you should consult your doctor before using an E-Stim device (even if it is for sexual use, rather than pain management).
  3. Remove all jewellery (e.g, rings, bracelets, genital piercings) before using E-Stim. The electrical currents may cause the metal to heat up.
  4. Do not use any E-Stim device if you are pregnant.
  5. Do not use any E-Stim device on broken or irritated skin.
  6. There has been some debate about whether it is safe to use an E-Stim vibrator if you have a copper IUD. There has been no evidence to suggest that it will cause harm, however it’s always best to consult a doctor.

I’d like to try E-Stim but I don’t want to use electrodes.

Tickling Truman

Not a problem! Honey Gifts carries a range of E-Stim toys that are versatile and fun. Our two E-Stim vibrators – Tickling Truman and Sizzling Simon – are powerful toys that can be used with or without the E-Stim function. The rumbly vibration modes provide a nice backdrop to the sensual prickling of the E-Stim. There’s even a kegel exercise mode that stimulates the muscles in the pelvic floor. Strengthening these muscles can help prevent incontinence and can even lead to stBig Bend-It E-Stim Prostate Stimulatorronger orgasms over time.

Our two E-Stim prostate stimulators (Big Bend-It and Twisting Tom) are made from soft and flexible silicone, allowing them to perfectly stroke the prostate while the E-Stim function provides toe-curling nerve stimulation to the rest of the area.

Partners looking to set out on an E-Stim adventure together can try the Magic Gloves, a delightfully tingly way to massage your lover into ecstasy.

Want to try a little pain with your pleasure? The Barry Bite E-Stim clamps are perfect. This inventive device allows you to use E-Stim on your nipples (and other areas consideBarry Bite E-Stim Body Clampsred unsafe when using regular electrodes) because the electrical current will flow between the two small arms of the clamp, not across a wider area.

The E-Stim options for couples and individuals are so varied and versatile that you’re sure to find something that tickles your fancy. Just keep in mind that many of these toys will still require the Mystim Tension Lover as the power source.

So what are you waiting for? Browse Honey’s selection of E-Stim toys in store or online and delve into a deliciously stimulating new world.

 

Erotic New Year’s Resolutions

Erotic New Year's Resolutions Vancouver Canada

Do you have a new year’s resolution yet? According to a recent study, the top three new year’s resolutions are to stick to a budget, exercise regularly, and eat healthier. While these are great new year’s resolutions that can help you live your best life, here at Honey Gifts we want you to consider making a few new year’s resolutions to improve your sexual health and happiness, too! Whether you are single, dating, or in a long-term relationship, there are lots of easy and fun ways you can improve your sex life.

Get To Know What You Like – For some women, masturbation is already a part of their sexual repertoire, and that’s great! Others may be exploring their body for the first time. Keep in mind that masturbation is part of a normal and healthy sex life, and can have lots of benefits for the body, too. Sexual health researchers have found that having an orgasm releases tension, relieves stress, and can help you get to sleep. Who knew! Masturbation can also improve your partnered sex life, too. Knowing how you like to be pleasured makes it easier to communicate with your partner what you enjoy. For women that are uncertain where to begin, we recommend trying a versatile and easy to use vibrator that you can use internally for g-spot stimulation and externally for clitoral pleasure, such as the Lelo Gigi 2.

Explore Your Sexual Fantasies – Getting the sex life you really want is about communicating your sexual desires and exploring your fantasies. Feeling a little shy? One way to easily bring up sexual fantasies with your partner is to read short erotic stories to each another, and then talk about what parts of the story that turned you on the most. The Sweet Life: Erotic Fantasies for Couples is a short story anthology for couples to inspire and arouse you. Another great way to share fantasies with your partner is to watch adult erotic films together. Erika Lust’s downloadable adult films are tastefully erotic and sensual movies that celebrate sexuality, intimacy, and genuine passion between couples. Watching an erotic film with your partner can easily and quickly get you in the mood for a night of intimacy, and bring you closer together through your shared sexual experience. If you are starting the new year solo, erotic stories and adult films are a great way to explore your own sexuality, too.

Try Something New – One of the great things about a new year is feeling like you get to start fresh. So why not try something new that you’ve been interested in for awhile now? Whether you are picking out your first sex toy or already have a few, trying out a new adult sex toy can bring a lot of sexual pleasure and enjoyment to your solo or partner sex life. The new Fun Factory G5 Tiger Deluxe Vibrator is a USB rechargeable vibe that has stimulating textured ridges and ultra-strong vibrations. Curious about bondage? The 50 Shades of Kink: Introduction to BDSM book and Beginner Bondage Fantasy Kit will get you started. Want to try a new sex position? The informative Sex Deck accompanied by the supportive Liberator Wedge make it easy to get into different sexual positions.

Have a safe and happy new year’s from Honey Gifts!

Romantic Getaways

Monday, August 24th, 2015

Planning a romantic getaway can bring you closer together then ever before!

 

Planning a romantic getaway is a fun way to bring you closer together as a couple. Going on a romantic vacation together, whether you are planning a week of exiting international travel or a relaxing weekend getaway nearby, gives you and your partner time to relax and reconnect while enjoying each another’s company. Planning a romantic getaway is just like planning any other vacation – it pays to plan ahead! Make sure you pack everything you need ahead of time to inspire intimacy and sensuality on your vacation.

Planning Ahead for Romance:

– When you get the hotel and get settled, set the tone of the getaway by giving your partner an erotic massage using a romantic massage candle. Unsure how to give your partner a massage? Try out some of the easy to learn techniques in the Touch Me Erotic Massage Game.

– Get inspired by reading erotic stories to one another from the Sweet Confessions: Erotic Fantasies for Couples book. Or try playing one of the erotic games in Cosmo’s Steamy Sex Games, which includes 12 quick, sexy games to play with your partner.

– Want to really heat things up? Surprise your partner with some erotic lingerie and a couple’s sex toy to try together!

– Not sure what to bring? The Kama Sutra Getaway Kit and the Kama Sutra Weekenders Kit are specially designed with several different travel-sized romantic oils, lotions, and pleasure gels to try together.

– Make sure to pack any lubricant and safe sex supplies you might need.

Travel Tips for a Worry-Free Romantic Getaway:

– When you’re packing your adult sex toys, make sure to remove any batteries to avoid your vibrator turning on accidentally in your suitcase. Some rechargeable vibrators feature a travel lock function to prevent this from happening. If you’re flying, some airlines place restrictions on what you can bring in your carry-on luggage. For hassle-free traveling, it’s recommended to pack your sex toys in clear plastic bags in your checked baggage.

– Make sure to pack extra batteries or the charger for your rechargeable sex toys. When leaving the hotel, make sure you don’t forget to take your chargers with you.

– Taking some extra time to set the mood for a night of romance makes your romantic getaway feel extra-special. Bring some candles, scented rose petals, and some romantic music, or bring an erotic DVD to watch together.

– Once at the hotel, make sure to put the “do not disturb” sign on the door and request to not be interrupted with a turn-down service if the hotel provides one. You don’t want to be interrupted when things are heating up!

What Frequent Travelers Know:

– Print a copy of any confirmations from hotel, car, or flight reservations. That way, you have all the information you need right at hand in case you need to confirm your travel itinerary with the front desk of the hotel or travel agent at the airport.

– If you aren’t familiar with your destination, it’s a good idea to check out Google Maps before you leave, and get an idea of where you’re going so you don’t miss that important highway exit turn off to your destination!

Keep in Mind…

Planning a romantic getaway is all about bringing you closer to your partner and getting some much deserved rest and relaxation time together. Even if everything doesn’t go exactly according to plan, just remember it’s all part of the adventure. Bon Voyage!

Honeymoon Lingerie

Wednesday, April 29th, 2015

After choosing what styles of bridal lingerie to wear underneath your bridal gown on your wedding day, the next step is to choose what beautiful lingerie you will be wearing on your wedding night! If you’re planning to travel with your partner for your honeymoon, you’ll probably want to choose a few different pieces to bring on your honeymoon with you to wear throughout the romantic vacation. Many pieces of wedding lingerie feature romantic details such as beautiful lace trim, dreamy ribbon accents, and charming petite bows, in white or cream colors.

For your wedding night, a basque is the ultimate in seductive, sophisticated lingerie for the modern woman. A basque provides just the right amount of support and coverage, while the light boning on the side provides subtle body contouring for a smooth and sculpted silhouette. For your wedding night, the beautiful Odette Corset and matching Odette Bikini Brief from Heidi Klum in beautiful retro cream make a stunning impression.

You might want to bring a robe to wear over revealing lingerie, or for wearing over pyjamas when lounging in the hotel with your partner. The elegant Something Blue Robe is designed in classic cream using elegant lace and the softest jersey material. A short sleeve robe, such as the white satin Betsey Johnson Satin and Lace Wrap, is ideal for tropical honeymoon destinations.

When you’re searching for lingerie that is flattering and comfortable, without sacrificing sex appeal, a chemise is the way to go! The majority of chemise style lingerie pieces are designed without the use of underwire or boning, making this a versatile piece of lingerie comfortable enough for sleeping and lounging in. Many pieces, such as the Matilda Chemise are created with intricately detailed lace trim that draws the eye to the bust.

When you want to wear something a little more provocative, try a peek-a-boo style underwear and bra. This erotic style of lingerie leaves little to the imagination! The Only Hearts Coucou Lola Bralette and Only Hearts Coucou Lola Coulotte in cream and blue are amazingly seductive, with peek-a-book style openings that reveal a tantalizing glimpse of skin.

A teddy is a body-skimming piece of lingerie that hugs your natural feminine curves for a sleek, streamlined silhouette. Made from beautiful floral lace with a flirty ruffled hem, the Betsey Johnson Sheer Lace Teddy in ivory is a delightful piece of lingerie that features a revealing snap open closure at the crotch. The daring Valerie Lace Teddy combines romantic floral lace and an intricate strappy thong-style back with to create a distinctly erotic bridal lingerie outfit.

When you’re packing your suitcase for your honeymoon, don’t forget to pack the right accessories to compliment your beautiful honeymoon lingerie – a pair of sheer white stockings, a lace garter belt, and a set of sparkling nipple pasties!

Wedding Day Lingerie

Saturday, April 18th, 2015

When you are getting married, you have so many things to plan, including what you will be wearing underneath the gown! With so many options for beautiful bridal lingerie, where do you begin?

One of the questions many women ask is what type of bra they should be wearing underneath their bridal gown? The answer depends on the style of the gown you will be wearing! Some questions to consider when shopping for a bra to wear under your bridal gown are:

What type of neckline does the gown you will be wearing have? Demi bra styles are great options for many mid-rise designs, such as the Macpherson Committed Love Underwire Bra.

– What type of straps will the bra need? Strapless styles are a great choice for bridal gown designs that feature narrow straps or no straps, such as the Elle Macpherson Committed Love Strapless Bra.

– What type of padding, if any, do you prefer? Bras range from sheer non-padded designs, subtle foam contouring styles, to dramatically silhouette enhancing air-padded options, such as the Huit Arpege Padded Air Bra.

Generally, a bra that is a lighter color or one that matches your skin tone is preferable to wear under bridal gowns, so as to be less visible, such as the Elle Macpherson Cloud Swing Balconette Bra in cream. Many women choose to wear the Nippies Crème or Caramel Heart Nipple Covers when wearing a sheer bra for discreet nipple coverage during photographs.

Some gowns are designed with built in support, so that you can choose whether you want to wear a bra. When you are considering going without a bra, you may want to wear a pair of comfortable silicone Nippies Natural Skin Nipple Covers, to completely conceal nipples during photographs. For added security, wear Nippies Stylin’ Tape, a clear body-safe tape to secure clothing such as shoulder straps and necklines where they belong.

The style and cut of underwear you choose to wear will also depend on the style of the gown you will be wearing. A slim-fitting gown requires a smooth, seamless pair of underwear that lay flat against the body, such as the Commando Invisible Thong or the Hanky Panky Bridal Panty.

Garters will ensure that stockings stay where they should on your big day! A garter belt such as the L’Agent by Agent Provocateur Vanesa Suspender Belt will keep stockings from slipping, or try a traditional leg garter, such as the L’Agent by Agent Provocateur Alia Garter. For a coordinated set, you can match your bra, underwear, and garter. The Cloud Nine Balconette Bra, Cloud Nine Thong, and Cloud Nine Garterbelt together make a beautiful, matching bridal ensemble.

No matter what style of lingerie you are planning to wear, it is recommended to try it on with the gown you are planning to wear to make sure it is supportive, flattering, and seamless underneath your bridal gown. Wear your wedding lingerie with the confidence, knowing you will be beautifully glowing on your big day!

Lelo Introduces Their Film ‘Beyond the Wave’

Friday, February 20th, 2015

Conceptualized and produced by Swedish luxury lifestyle brand LELO, the movie Beyond the Wave follows one man’s journey in a post-apocalyptic world where men and women choose to live apart. A chance meeting with the young Noria sparks an unforgettable journey for Jacques, one that shows him the importance of understanding another’s perspective. On the surface it’s a love story in a post-apocalyptic landscape, but deeper than that, it’s a reminder on how to enrich relationships in an increasingly individualistic and divided world.

The goal of Beyond the Wave is to encourage couples to connect with the story, and through the act of watching the movie itself show the richness of different perspectives. That’s also the thinking behind the interactive PlayTogether™ experience – by bringing couples closer, physically and emotionally, the trailer becomes a catalyst for a rich, shared experience that’s fun and completely unique: the act of becoming a part of the journey together overtakes the action itself.
