Braxton's quickie for the day...
Quickie reader question: Is a configuration the same thing as a circuit?
Definition: Pole - the part of an electrode which makes electrical contact with the body. An electrode can have multiple poles.
The most “basic” unit of a stimming setup is a circuit, which is composed of two (and only two) poles. Anything less than two poles is not a circuit, and will not provide stimulation. Examples of one circuit: two sticky pads or one bipolar vaginal electrode. Beginners almost always start out with just one circuit.
Popular examples of two circuits: two CurrentLoops (monopolar) on the penis, connected to two sticky pads (monopolar) on the sacral nerve; a CurrentVagMini electrode (bipolar) combined with a CurrentWand (bipolar).
I’ll stop the examples at two circuits because most power boxes are limited to two circuits. As you advance in your stimming, you will find more and more opportunities for multiple power boxes.
Now, at last, we are prepared to define a configuration: every example I’ve listed above is a configuration. In essence, a configuration is EVERYTHING you are using to provide stimulation during a given session.
