To get off by anything to do with electronics, esp. shocking one's self, mainly in the genital areas. It is thought that this action is pleasurable. Different people have different limits to the electrophilia. Some people enjoy a gentle tickling, while others love intense pain from it, which is why sometimes this fetish is related to BDSM. Some people use home built machines to do the job, others use TENS machines. There's also a device called the violet wand in which is not that powerful, and is usually used with people that don't like strong currents, or people that don't know much about electricity. There are the obvious dangers of electrophilia, including a risk of burns, paralysis, and electrocution. One that has electrophilia is called an electrophile.
