My Melting Moments With Japanese Drip Candles

Candle Wax On Womens Shoulder

Many of us know that candles in the bedroom can add a sense of ambience, especially when in the throes of passion. Some people in the BDSM community add another level to this by using candles and their wax in a different way, by using specially made candles for dripping onto our skin. Wax is used as part of sensation and temperature play, it stimulates the senses with different colours, scents, heat, and touch, wherein the wax can be used in sensory focused activities to stimulate the senses.

I went on the hunt for a new set of play candles recently. I decided against the tapered paraffin table candles (way too hot) already in my extensive candle collection and finding the soy wax candles I had were pleasant and warm on the skin but not painful. Painful was what I was after, not that bad kind of pain where you burn your hand cooking but the exciting, and thrilling kind of pain you get from a proper wax play candle. I was after something professional between the two.

About Doc Johnson Japanese Drip Candles

​I found Doc Johnsons Japanese Drip Candle 3 pack, in it, you get 1 tapered candle in each of the 3 colours red, black and purple, a perfect colour combination for creating some beautiful wax artwork on a partner’s body or on yourself.

​Buying my candles and getting them home I read the back of the packet “Perfect for pleasure and pain”, “warning for experienced players only” these candles are exactly what I wanted, I couldn’t wait to try them out on a partner. Of course they sat in my room full of BDSM toys and equipment a good few months before I had a bunch of kinky friends over for drinks, suddenly I remembered them sitting in my drawer unused. Among my friends were some very keen kinksters whose hands shot up in excitement when I suggested we have a wax play session before we down too many drinks.

Side note: My rule is if I’ve had too many drinks to legally drive my car I’m too intoxicated to play. This was early in the night and we were still on our first round of drinks. This also goes for obtaining other people’s consent. I especially advise against play with fire and or wax while intoxicated.

My Experience With The Doc Johnson Japanese Drip Candles

I lit up the red candle first and started out holding the candle about 30-40cm away from her bare skin, the first drop elicited a sharp intake of breath, I held the candle upright to make sure it wouldn’t drip again and asked if she was ok, she said yes just that it was very hot, she has done wax play before and has a high pain tolerance, an indication I think as to how hot the Doc Johnson Drip Candles are. I dripped a nice amount of wax all over her back which would act as a layer of protection for the next round, I used black next and held the candle closer, the closer you hold the candle the hotter the wax is when it drips onto the skin. She said the heat was much nicer after she got used to it and relaxed a little, especially with the initial layer down.

Keep in mind that the darker the candle the slightly hotter it will be, so a black paraffin candle will be slightly hotter to drip than a white paraffin candle, so start with the white if you are new to wax play.

My other friend couldn’t handle the Doc Johnson Drip Candles directly onto her skin, she needed a layer of a soy candle I had which had a much lower burning point before I could drip on any of the Japanese Drip Candles onto her skin. So please be aware that these do burn at a reasonably high temperature as they are paraffin! After I was done with the wax I used a blunt butter knife to scrape it off their backs, which added to the whole sensation play aspect of the experience.

This was just some light fun between friends, but if you want to kick it up a notch why not add some blindfolds or bondage into the mix, after all wax and bondage go hand in hand!

The Doc Johnsons Japanese Drip candle set is made of a non-toxic paraffin wax and are just over 15cm each. These candles are not really for beginners and I advise reading up on wax play safety before going ahead with using them or any other wax or temperature play. For more information, read our wax and temperature play guide.

Nona’s Recipe For The Best E-stim

The Electrastim Silicone Noir In Black

Working in an Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centre, my job is never boring from the weird and wonderful people who come through the doors to the weird and wonderful products I get to see and sometimes review.

Today I am reviewing a fairly standard sex toy, an e-stim G-spot probe nothing weird about that, but often companies are very hit and miss with their products presentation be it the shape or colour of the product itself (psst enough shocking pink and hideous shades of purple already) or the name and slogan for a sex toy, Womanizer I’m lookin’ at you.

Today we have Nona an e-stim vaginal probe (which can also be used as a butt plug because of its flared base!) from the silicone NOIR range.

Box Of The Electrastim Silicone Noir
Sex Toy: Electrastim Silicone Noir Nona In Packaging

About The Electrastim Silicone Noir Nona

Nona, a name perhaps inspired by the Roman deity, one of the Parcae, the three personifications of destiny. Nona, whose name means “ninth”, was called upon by pregnant women in their ninth month when the child was due to be born…. perhaps not.

I think some of you reading may already know why I find this name to be so amusing and just oh so wrong, but those of you who don’t please allow me to explain:

  • Silicone – a very common body safe material that most high-quality sex toys are made of.
  • Noir – a very specific film genre or in French it can mean Black (ethnicity), colour in general, drunk/inebriated and dark/darkness
  • Nona – Nonna (spelt with two n’s) in Italian means Grandmother.

Now I don’t care that it isn’t spelt with two n’s I read this box as “Silicone Black Grandma” and I can’t un-see it. These words are common enough knowledge that I am absolutely sure the United Kingdom based company Cyrex who makes ElectraStim products has at least 1 person who knows Nonna means grandma in Italian (they clearly know what noir means as the whole NOIR range is black) I want to know what depraved and honestly hilarious individual let the name go through and for this to be printed on the box:

“Lavish your G-spot with attention when you get intimate with Nona…”

I just can’t deal, it’s too funny.

Name aside this sex toy is excellent in fact Nona won the 2015 ADULTEX Award for best product design. Nona is made of premium grade silicone and is a 3.5 inches (8.8cm) insertable length and has a 4.3inch (10.9cm) circumference it is a good size for both g-spot and p-spot stimulation.

How To Use The Electrastim Silicone Noir Nona

Nona and other sex toys from ElectraStim require one of the ElectraStim stimulator control panels to power it. The ElectraStim Stimulator (control panel) and all of their e-stim range use universal 2mm pin connections for all of our stimulation units and electrodes are used, so rest assured all the ElectraStim products will work with the control panel and vice versa. The other items in the NOIR range include a dildo, beginners butt plug, prostate massager, kegel balls and another 3 different sized butt plugs. They all have normal names like Ovid, Aura, Sirius, Lula and Rocker. (Ovid is an Italian name by the way, very suspicious 😂)

Now, Nona is a bit of a dust collector so make sure you store her in a bag or container of some kind, we can’t have ol’ Nona getting dusty now. Cleaning Nona is also really easy, just make sure you use hot water and a good sex toy cleaner and leave her to dry in the sun before you put her back in storage.

Try not to let this poor name choice deter you from this fantastic e-stim g-spot probe, it really is a high-quality device that is sure to bring a lot of electrified pleasure, check out the ElectraStim range at one of our Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centers today. If you would like to find out more information, be sure to read a sex toy review on the ElectraStim product range.

My Daily Dose Of Electro Sex

Electro Sex Toy By Eymalis

Electro stimulation is not something you can just jump into with no research or experience. Something I personally would never have thought of before I decided to try electrosex or Estim toys but after some serious research into the Eymalis Le’Courtisan Vibrator I have discovered a whole new world and a whole new perspective on electro stimulation sex toys. There are some serious things to consider before you try it yourself.

The Many Ways To Use The Electro Stimulating Eymalis Le’Courtisan Vibrator

So what is electro stimulation and how do we use it? What do we use it for? And does it really feel good?

“Erotic electrostimulation (abbreviated e-stim and also known as electrosex) is a sexual practice involving the application of electrical stimulation to the nerves of the body, with particular emphasis on the genitals, using a power source (such as a TENS, EMS, Violet wand, or made-for-play units) for purposes of sexual stimulation. Electrostimulation has been associated with BDSM activities, and erotic electrostimulation is an evolution of that practice.” ~ Erotic Electrostimulation, Wikipedia

The use of electricity for entertainment and sexual arousal has been around for hundreds of years and at this rate has no signs of slowing down. People are intrigued and those who have experienced electro stimulation say they will never find pleasure like it with anything else. So how do we use it? There are endless ways to use electro stimulation as the sex industry has quickly adapted to world of electrosex and they can provide anything from electro stim vibrators, cock rings or even chastity belts. But if you are new and looking to find a way into this world of electrosex but you’re not quite ready to jump into the chastity belt, start small and start with the Electro Stimulating Eymalis Le’Courtisan Vibrator. Not only is it an electro stimulating vibrator but the versatility of this sex toy is remarkable.

Multi-purpose

  1. Use it as a vibrator. Yes although it is a Estim vibrator it can be used without the electrical side, it has been designed it be used as an internal vibrator for the anus and vagina
  2. Use as an electro stimulating dildo or switch on the vibration for a mix of both. It is important to note that when using the electro stimulation setting you insert the vibrator into the vagina/anus before you ignite the electro setting and turn off the setting before you remove the vibrator.
  3. Use to strengthen the pelvic floor muscles. As the Eymalis Le’Courtisan Vibrator is designed to deliver mild electrical waves that stimulate the muscles in the vagina or anus, what better way to use this vibrator to your advantage by kicking your pelvic floor muscles up a notch or two.

*Electro stimulation sessions are limited to 15 minutes per use so the muscles do not tire.

Lubrication And Electro Stimulating Vibrators

When it comes to using a lubricant or Electro stimulating gel with the Eymalis Le’Courtisan Vibrator you must be aware of what you are using and how it will affect the sex toy. It is recommended that you use a gel soluble in water, sterile, greaseless, transparent and non-irritating lube; I would even go as far to suggest staying away from edible, flavoured or highly scented lubricants. It is not recommended to use Vaseline or any type of fat based.

*Be sure not to get lubricant in the battery compartment as this will cause damage.

Staying Safe When Using Electro Stimulating Vibrators

With electro stimulators of any sort a few more warnings and care instructions do ensure. For example:

  • Keep out of reach of children (especially when it comes to any kind of electrical current this is more important than ever if you have this vibrator at home).
  • It is not to come into contact with any piercings you or your partner might have.
  • It may not come into contact with an IUD a type of contraception placed inside a woman’s vagina.
  • Be extremely careful not to let the vibrator come into contact with water or soak in any liquids e.g. Lube.
  • Do not insert the massager in its entirety into the vagina.
  • When cleaning, ensure you remove the batteries before any cleaning or washing.
  • Remove batteries when not using the sex toy.
  • When disposing of the intimate love toy it is important that you do not just throw it away in household waste bins or set it alight, it must be recycled responsibly as any other electrical appliance.

Do Not Use If

  • If you are pregnant.
  • If you wear a pacemaker or any kind of medical equipment that uses electrical current.
  • If you have a bladder or vaginal infection.
  • When you are menstruating.
  • Or if you have any serious or treatable genital conditions or ongoing medical issues.

*It is so important that when you are using any kind of electro stimulating sex toys or other that you read the instructions and warnings carefully because if something was to go wrong it could be devastating.

Something To Consider

Although there are a lot of warnings and cautions to consider when using any kind of electro stimulation, the benefits are far worth it. Not only is estim a great way to explore something totally different but it can benefit your body and mind by letting you reach more intense stimulation and orgasm. The Eymalis Le’Courtisan Vibrator is a fantastic mix of a sleek comfortable vibrator and mild electrical waves that stimulate the nerve endings in the vagina or anus to increase arousal and sensation. It is easily controlled through four buttons located on the base of the sex toy, indicating vibration mode, electro mode and the increase and decrease buttons. Over all it has 9 settings of intensity through 2 modes allowing you to easily start slowly and increase as required. The sleek design makes for a beautiful piece of equipment with the electrodes plated with 24 carat gold ensuring a perfect conductivity and low risk of allergic reaction.

Overall the Eymalis Le’Courtisan Vibrator has proven to be a gentle stepping stone into the world of electrosex. Although there is a lot to think about before you decide to try electro stimulation including if you qualify under the health warnings, it is something completely out of the comfort zone and it could change your bedroom preferences or it might just be a one off trial but either way I encourage anyone to give it a go. It is shockingly delightful. For more information read our complete guide on electro-stimulation.

Top 6 Nipple Clamp Styles

Funny Meme About Nipple Clamps

Ouch! Might be the first thought you have when you hear the words, nipple and clamp in the same sentence but let me assure you that nipple clamps can bring a whole new level of fun to your sex life and a great addition to any BDSM activity especially if you understand how men and women really feel about nipple play.

Nipple clamps come in sooo many different styles and variations, magnetised clamps held together purely by magnetic force, some that electrify and some that vibrate, some styles joined by chains, attached to collars, some free standing some with decorations, weights, and even jingle bells. Some improvised household items like clothes pegs and chop sticks are popular DIY clamp options. So whether you’re new to clamps of a seasoned veteran there is an Ouch! clamp for you, so here are some styles of clamps from Ouch! A fantastic range of clamps, with lots of choices, they are available here at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres and on our online store Adultsmart.

Adjustable – Alligator Style

These Ouch! Adjustable Clamps are the perfect place to start if you’ve never used clamps before, they are easy to use and adjust with the little screw on the side that you just twist and adjust to as tight or loose as you’d like, they are also quick release unlike some of the other adjustable clamps out there, they are just a pinch away from coming off.

This style is also great for beginners because they have that traditional nipple clamp look your partner should hopefully know what’s up just by looking at them, so they are less intimidating this way.

Pincette – Tweezer Style

The tweezer style clamp Pincette is another easy to use style of clamp but a little fiddlier in my opinion than the alligator styles, the tweezer style is preferable if you enjoy how these look, they are long and slender and very nice to look at. To use this style of clamp you move the little rubber stopper up the tweezers to tighten their grip on the nipple. They are adjustable and include the rubber tips on the end for a less intense style of clamp.

Vice – Barrel Style

Barrel style clamps like the Vice clamps are easy to adjust, all you do is twist the barrel to release the pressure the clamps have on the nipple, these are great for the extra weight the barrel part adds to the clamp without technically being weighted clamps and they also look great!

BDSM Nipple Pinchers
Sex Toy: Ouch! Vice Nipple Clamps

Helix – Mandible Style

The Ouch! Helix clamps look amazing and a little complex but don’t let their looks put you off, they are easy to adjust at their base with a twisting motion, these style of clamps are something to go for if you’d like something a little more advanced than the standard alligator style. They are deceptively intimidating to look at but not as harsh as they look (because they are still adjustable, unlike the very similar looking clover style nipple clamp, which is considered to be the harshest of them all).

​Pinch – Clip Style

Now if you’re after something with some bite, something on the harsher end of the scale, try the Pinch clamps, they are not adjustable and therefore clamp super tight. Not for the faint of nipple.

Pincers – Non-Adjustable Alligator Style

Shaped just like the Adjustable alligator style clamps these are the extreme version, with no way to adjust them just like the Pinch clamp you’re feeling the full force of its clamping ability.

All of the Ouch! clamps and chains are made of stainless steel and aluminum and are completely nickel-free for those with allergies.

Before you rush out and buy your very own Ouch! clamps please read these safety tips about using them:

If it’s your first time using clamps try using them in 5-10 minute intervals and no matter how many times you’ve used clamps please never leave them on for longer than 20 minutes this will cut off circulation and can cause permanent nerve damage to the nipple.

Remember the most painful part about using nipple clamps is when you take them off, so be aware of this and careful when using them on yourself or on a partner.

Learn How To Electrify Your Clitoris!

ElectraStim Halo Box With Image

Walking into work after a few days off is always exciting here at Oh Zone Adult Lifestyle Centres, there’s bound to be something new on the shelves and I usually can’t wait to seek them out! I didn’t have to look far today, with a whole new wall of e-stim devices to have a look at, I went right over to start investigating everything electro play just happens to be one of my favourite activities so seeing all new dildos, probes and plugs I was super impressed there was also an e-stim paddle, nipple clamps, restraints, Kegel balls and even a masturbator so there really is something for everyone here.

What really caught my eye was the Halo, the Halo is an electro-sex clitoral probe, the sadist in me delighted at the thought of using this on a partner and the masochist part of me was super intrigued as to how this would feel on myself.

​First, Let Me Explain What E-stim Is!

Well, erotic electrostimulation or e-stim is a form of stimulation using electric shocks and pulses on different parts of the body including nipples, genitals and internally, vaginally or anally. Like many sex toys and devices used in the kink community, electro stimulation stems from medical practices dating back to the 1800’s and even further back to the 1700’s for entertainment purposes. Electro devices have been advertised as cures for impotence, devices for passive exercising and even hair growth. Medically e-stim devices are still used today such as using them as strengthening and training tools for athletes and as part of physiotherapy as a repair tool for injured muscles. Of course devices like violet wands and tens units were appropriated by the kink community for our own sadomasochist fantasies and from that, items like the ElectraStim Halo were born.
