E-Stim Plug

Electro stimulation (E-Stim) is a very interesting aspect of kink play which I thoroughly enjoy. Beside a capable stimulation unit you need also some electrodes to connect to your subject. First what comes in mind is of course a plug. The one I like to show here is one of the smaller kind, yet fun to use.

What you Need

Beside the obvious stimulation unit you need some tools and the material for the electrode.

On the tool side you need:

  • a jigsaw
  • drill with a selection of drills (2 mm, 4 mm & 10 mm)
  • some decent glue (epoxy)
  • sharp scissor
  • sandpaper
  • file

As materials you need:

  • a connection cable that fits your unit
  • aluminum tape
  • 3 mm acrylic sheet
  • plastic rod for the plug

For the rod you can use different materials. I have chosen a ø 20 mm black PVC rod. You can also use acrylic, if you have the patience for polishing it. The length is 12 cm.

Putting Things Together

First you need to prepare the plug itself. Cut the rod into length and use the file for rounding the tip on one side. Once it is in shape use sandpaper with different graining to make a smooth surface. If you’ve chose acrylic you have to polish the surface to make it transparent. The bottom of the plug needs to accommodate the cable with a knot so you have to drill a ø 10 mm hole into it. It should be around 2 cm deep. Also you need two small holes (ø 2 mm) on opposite sides to connect the cable with the aluminum electrode surface. They should be about 5 mm above the baseplate.

The baseplate is made of a circular acrylic plate with a diameter of 45 mm. A jigsaw is fine for cutting. Give the edges also a nice finish with the sandpapers and some polish. Now you need to drill a hole with a suitable diameter for the cable. If you like you can also add some more holes to attach some strings during play.

Next you have to prepare the cable. First run the cable through the baseplate. Then carefully remove the insulation. You’ll need 2 cm of blank wire under the aluminum foil. Tie a simple knot as a pull relief and run the two wires through the small holes. Store the knot inside the plug and check if you’ve accidentally created a short. Then apply the glue and glue both parts together. If you work carefully you can prevent those ugly glue marks visible in the picture above.

Once the glue is fully dried you can add the aluminum stripes on both sides. The aluminum tape is pretty sensitive and you’ll see all scratches for ever. It is important to use a sharp scissor with a very smooth cut to prevent any sharp edges on the finished plug. On the side which faces the tip of the plug you should carefully round the edges. Then glue the tape onto the plug and fix the wires with it. This will also make a good contact so the electrode is electrified. Pay special attention to the edges. You have to prevent any sharp edges and wrinkles.

Now plug in your new toy 😉

    Are you sure that this is true?

      Yes, it works perfect. I already made a couple of them that way. The aluminum doesn’t stretch which makes it a little bit tricky to get it smooth. You have to start from the center and work towards the edges, then it is no problem.
