29 M. Is (estim) safe? I have been using a TENS unit for estim, but not applying the pads directly to the testes. I put one pad on the base of the penis and the other on the buttocks or by the anus. The TENS unit I have puts out 6 milliamps of current at a max of 70v. I have not seen any articles online saying that it is not safe, with the exception to the source below.
“Lateral electrical surface stimulation therapy has been found to destroy Leydig cells”
(Bomba G, Kowalski IM, Szarek J, Zarzycki D, Pawlicki R (2001).

Will doing estim on the prostate gland be safe (with an approved electric estim prostate stimulator or TENS unit power to the toy)? Is electrical current from an electro-sex toy harmful to the prostate gland? Are there any risks of infertility or harm with prolonged use? I will attach a picture of my TENS unit. Thanks.
