Review: Prestige Electro Cock Ring for ElectraStim

Posted June 2, 2014 by

The ElectraStim Prestige is a brand new cock ring that’s just been released, today in fact, the day of publishing.  I was lucky enough to be sent one by ElectraStim themselves, in exchange for test driving it and giving it a fair review.  Although I haven’t reviewed them, I have a set of their old style cock rings to compare them to and also have a bunch of other electrosex toys to use alongside this one.  This particular toy is unipolar, which means that you will need to connect another toy or device to your power unit in order to complete the circuit and feel any electrical signals.

The build quality of the Prestige Cock Ring is excellent.  Now, there was nothing essentially wrong with the old style rings, as you can see in the photograph below, but the new Prestige is a step up.  The same way there’s nothing wrong with a Ford Mondeo, but a BMW M5 is still an upgrade.  The old rings are made from aluminium (or aluminum if you’re across the pond), which is fine, but very light.  In fact, they hardly weigh a thing. When you hold them, it’s like they’re not even there.  The Prestige however, is crafted from medical grade 316 stainless steel (more commonly known as surgical steel) and is a hefty item.  It’s thicker, wider and altogether much chunkier than the older version.  It feels weighty in your hand when you pick it up.  You know when you pick up a fine Swiss watch and it shocks you with its weight?  It’s the same with this.  You automatically drop your hand down when it’s placed in it.

As I mentioned earlier, the Prestige is unipolar, so you’ll need to use this with another toy or an electropad to make it work.  Let me explain (or at least try to explain) in laymans terms.  To feel anything at all with electrotoys, or in fact any electrical TENS machine or device, you need to complete a circuit.  The ElectroStim Flick TENS machine (or your TENS machine of choice) needs to not only send electrical signals, but receive them as well.  If the circuit is not complete (or broken), then the electrical signals have nowhere to go, electricity cannot flow and nothing will happen.  If you connect your ElectraStim Flick to your Prestige cock ring and switch it on, unless you complete a circuit, nothing will happen either.  You’ll still have one end of the cable that’s unattached and waiting to complete the loop.  What this means is that you need to use another toy or pad for this to work, and there are a number of different options for you.  You could, for example, use one of a number of different attachments from ElectraStim.  Personally, I like to use the unipolar urethral sound I was sent some months ago.  But if urethral penetration isn’t your thing (don’t worry, you’re not alone), then you could use another cock ring or an electropad, or maybe an insertable toy.  You can even attach your other toy or pad to a partner and complete the circuit whenever you touch each other.  Sound like fun? It is! Blowjobs will never be the same, that’s for sure.

So how does it actually feel? It’s difficult to explain.  It gives you a tingling sensation that’s almost like having a vibrator inside you.  Even though it’s only touching your skin, the tingling is felt far deeper inside you.  It’s like the base of your penis is being stimulated directly.  It feels great when combined with both penile or anal electrostimulation or both, which is possible with a TENS machine that has four outputs for two circuits (or one quadripolar toy).  Now once you have rigged up your desired circuit (remember to use a little conductive gel instead of lube when putting this on), you can either lay back and simply enjoy playing with the settings on your TENS machine, or you can set up your machine and then enjoy masturbating.  It’s really up to you.  If your goal is achieving orgasm then masturbating at the same time is quickest, but it’s worth experimenting and seeing if you can orgasm through electrostimulation alone.  Not everybody can, but it’s amazing if it does happen.  It’s worth trying it in a few different ways, to see what works best for your body.  Some people can orgasm by anal electrostimulation alone, others need direct electrostimulation of the penis.  Try combining the Prestige with an anal probe and see what happens.  If you can’t climax, try it with some direct penile stimulation instead and see if that works.  Even if you find you still need to masturbate to orgasm, you’ll have had a lot of fun experimenting!

ElectraStim Prestige being worn

I have a few electro cock rings now and the Prestige is the best one so far.  The stimulation doesn’t feel any different to me from the other rings, but the weight and the size of the Prestige make it a lot more fun to wear.  The previous aluminium version worked fine and the cheaper flexible rings do the job, but this one takes it a step further.  The same way your Ford Mondeo will do a fine job or taking you wherever you want to go but your BMW M5 will do it better.  This is the M5 of cock rings!

They come in the following sizes/prices:

34mm / 1.3 inches – £25.00
38mm / 1.5 inches – £27.50
42mm / 1.7 inches – £30.00
46mm / 1.9 inches – £32.50
50mm / 2.0 inches – £35.00
