Braxton's quickie for the day...
Power box intensity, or more precisely, what intensity is needed for the job at hand, can be a challenge for a beginner.
When you’re new at the stimming game, it’s the general rule that you will be far too conservative on intensity. Why? Fear of current (even though it’s low voltage) plays with our subconscious survival mechanisms, causing tension in a process that begs for relaxation. Is it any wonder that it might take a few sessions to overcome any apprehensions?
Much like learning to drive a car, the stimmer grows far too comfortable with the “gas pedal" over time, automatically ramping up the intensity to high levels from the beginning. Too much intensity is just as big a problem as too little. Instead, what you seek to achieve is a starting level of intensity that leaves you plenty of room to grow during the session. For successful stimming, the intensity must constantly be stepped up from beginning to end, otherwise you fall victim to acclimation, which I touched upon in a previous quickie.
