Cattle prods and S&M

Sting like a bee or jolt like a thunderbolt?

This is a follow up to an earlier entry about buying a cattle prod as an S&M toy">shock prod.

Reading that the transformer in the cattle prod (which is what it turns out to be) can jack up the output of the 4 C batteries to 10,000 volts almost uncurled my hair. But as I dimly remembered and is pointed out below the danger is in the current not the voltage.

This left me wondering if we really wouldn’t be better off with a Rimba Tens Unit or the 9-volt slave goad I saw.

For Alexandra I think it is the iconic power of a cattle prod more than the electricity that draws her to it. The other devices wouldn’t be as enjoyable.

Though after looking around I see there’s a prod attachment (and many other devices) for the Rimba.

Wanted to get the advice of more experienced people on soc.subculture.bondage-bdsm I started this thread - cattle prods and BDSM">Shock Prod - and got a large number of responses. Well worth reading.

Someone who shares my interest in radio controlled shock toys also started a discussion.

And a few people offered their advice on Electrical Safety In BDSM Play.

Electro-torment on

Physically, electricity can produce a complex variety of sensations, and every Sub who has thought about the subject has their own idea of what it “should” feel like. If your subject enjoys the psychological trip, setting up a scene with all of the trappings of a torture session and applying mild stimulation while letting the subject’s mind do the rest can result in a very intense experience. Of course, if you and your subject are into more intense pain, electricity can provide more pain than most subs can tolerate, without leaving marks, scars, or (if done carefully) damage.

Some notes on electricity in B&D and S&M

From a 1994 electricity play demonstration:

Among the most important places is the chest, for electricity should not interfere with the electrical impulses that affect the heart. … Another principle was that of voltage versus amperage. The thing which causes danger is the level of amperes. The lower the amperage the less danger there is of causing damage.

Electricity Play: Demo Report

He may not claim to be an expert but he does have lots of experience behind him:

I don’t claim to be an expert, nor do I put forth this article as ‘the final word’ on this topic. However, I’ve already done the stupid things before I knew they were stupid, and just might let somebody skip this phase. As suggested in the title, this article is an introduction to electrical play, and new adventurers should explore other available resources for a more complete view of the topic.

A Brief Introduction to Electrical Play and Toys

From an interview with “Uncle Abdul”:

Like I said, I’m a techno-sadist. In all my play, electrical or not, I go for the intense intimacy and emotional sharing with my partner as I top/dominate/torture/whatever them. I want their mind, body, and spirit, and I give the same in equal fashion.

His Greenery Press book, Juice: Electricity for Pleasure and Pain is out of print but can be found if you are willing to pay for it.

Greenery Press has just published John Warren’s The Toybag Guide To High-Tech Toys.


I am a submissive and i love to have a lady to have that kind of power available. Of course to be an effective threat she has to use it once in a while. I have one in my collection of equipment for the ladies to use on me. I love it.

I love the Lady having that kind of power available to her. My personnal record for a cattle prod is 5 times on the balls. It was also used on my penis, legs, arms, fingers, and stomach. This session was about 4 hours long.

I guess you do since this is your second comment.

Even though we had a battery powered fly swatter and a small electrical toy made for the BDSM market we never actually tried them.

My Goddess regularly locks me in a humbler mounted outside my locked cage and shocks my cock and balls with a cattle prod. She really enjoys placing one of the terminals on on testicle and the other on the other testicle. When i beg her to stop, she just says “no” and continues increasing the voltage until i can smell my skin burning. She has kept this up for up to an hour. She then enjoys a cigarette and puts it out on my exposed scrotum.

i had a cattle prod. I like girls using it on me. my younger sister came know about this wish. So once when we were alone at home as our parents went outofstation she gather her 4 other friends. Then they hang me from celing and used cattleprod and other electric toys on me for 5 hours. from that day when ever our parents go out of station they did the BDMS electric troture on me.
