Sexual arousal from stripping in front of an audience
A stripper
SM play which pushes the limits of the persons involved. This can be particularly dangerous activities such as fire, electricity, or cutting, but often isn't dangerous at all.
Device, resembling a pair of tongs, used for applying very strong and tight elastic bands, intended for veterinary use in castrating and tail-cropping young animals, but sometimes used as a form of clamp in SM play, especially on nipples (prolonged wearing of such bands should be avoided).
Electrical Stimulating Devices
Electrotorture.: use of electricity directly applied to the skin. In most, the intensity of the applied electricity can be altered, from a low voltage to a fairly high amount. The sensations that come from these devices range from pleasant to very painful. Electrical play is best left alone. It is very dangerous edge-type play, and must be thoroughly researched before being embarked on.
Emetophilia (a.k.a. vomerophilia)
Sexual attraction to vomit
Emotional Sadism & Masochism
A combined ground between DS and SM is emotional sadism/emotional masochism. The most common form is embarrassment or humiliation. Examples include name-calling, having one's partner say he or she has behaved naughtily, or having one's partner engage in an emotionally uncomfortable activity (e.g., masturbating with the window blinds open or eating from a dog dish). Another form of emotional SM is emotional abandonment: play wherein the top responds coldly to the bottom or deserts the bottom. Flirting with someone else at a party or behaving with indifference toward the bottom after a difficult scene (where the inducement of jealousy or the indifference are part of the play) are examples, as is the controversial situation of leaving a bottom who is bound and helpless. (Before you do anything like this latter, think about extreme possibilities such as: What if the bottom has a heart attack or an emotional or physical crisis like becoming entangled in the bonds while no one is present? Leaving a bound bottom is universally considered to be not a safe or recommended activity.)
EMS unit
EMS (Electrical Muscle Stimulator) units and Relaxicisors. Similar machines include Transcutaneous Electrical Neural Stimulation unit, one of a number of machines designed for applying electrical pulses to the body at safe levels.
A group of endogenous, morphine-like hormones secreted by the brain when the body is under unusual stress, which fit into the brain's optiod receptors and stimulate them to fire, producing tranquilizing and pain-killing properties that appear to help induce a sort of euphoria; some people report feeling a state of well-being similar to endorphin euphoria after experiencing intense sensations such as those associated with prolonged flogging. A common question asked by newcomers is: How can anyone like to experience pain? There are as many answers as there are people who like it. For some people, pain is directly erotic. Some people have orgasms from being flogged; others are highly aroused by nipple clamps. For others, pain is often accompanied by internal chemical reactions, most notably the release of brain chemicals called endorphins.
Endorphin Rush
Endorphins are the chemicals responsible for the "high" people often get from activities such as sex, or high-risk sports, and is the body's response to heightened or intense experiences of certain kinds. BDSM activities, especially those incorporating a degree of sensation play often cultivate the endorphin rush as part of their "payoff" to the sub. But also see aftercare for the care needed to ensure that subdrop does not occur afterwards as the body returns to normal.
Emysphilia (or Turtle Fetish)
A rare sexual fetish in which the practitioner experiences sexual arousal from visual and tactile stimuli relating to turtles and tortoises.
A thorough anal douche using a bag and tube. See Douche or Douching also.
Enforced Chastity
Chastity play where the Dom controls a sub's sexual frequency and ability to experience sexual pleasure, usually with a chastity belt or other chastity device. {{See Erotic sexual denial)
Enslavement is the process of putting someone into slavery.
refers to a repeated inability to control urination.
(a.k.a. hebephilia):
Sexual attraction towards adolescents
Epicaricacy is a human psychological response that entails the rejoicing at, taking joy in, or getting pleasure from the misfortunes of others. The term is derived from the Ancient Greek ἐπί (epi), "upon") + χάρις (kharis), "joy") +κακός (kakos), "evil"). Its German langauge equivalent, schadenfreude, is commonly used as a loan word in English.
Epicaricacy has similarities to envy, gloating, jealousy, sadism and sardonism.
Epididymis - (also see page on 'Sex organs')
