Braxton's quickie for the day...
Today’s quickie is on edging: the art of staying on the “edge” of the stim orgasm.
In a simple world, the formula for edging would go something like this: set your power box intensity just below the trigger point for your orgasm and enjoy as long as you like. Alas, it’s not a simple world. Due to nerve accommodation (some call it acclimation), it turns out that the worst thing you can do while stimming is to stay at the same intensity level for too long. In other words, if a nerve transmits constant, unvaried stimulation for too long, the brain begins to interpret the signal as invalid data.
In a past quickie (http://anna-braxtons-store.myshopify.com/blogs/news/7650575-braxtons-quickie-for-the-day), I explained the two major power box techniques: “Rock & Roll” and “Ratchet”. Their only commonality is the fact that the intensity never stays the same for long, thus avoiding nerve accommodation.
So what’s the real-world solution to edging? Using whichever power box technique works best for you, stim until you approach The Point Of No Return for your orgasm. From here, there are two ways to buy more time.
The first method is to step back the intensity. How much? Only experimentation will determine what’s right for you. Some people can step back just a couple of notches, but your mileage may vary.
The second method is to send intensity down to zero for a few seconds, at most, then resume the former intensity level. Don’t accomplish this by cycling the power: that could smart!
