Violet Wands are a high end sensation toy, used as a sexual aid or a fetish toy by many people. While they were not common a few years ago, movies and books featuring violet wands have made them increasingly popular.

As a sensual toy, violet wands feel like tiny champagne bubbles fizzing on your skin. They have glass applicators that make the sparks, and while this feels wonderful and can certainly provoke your moans, one of the most amazing things about a violet wand is that it can electrify your own touch! This means that those little fizzing bubbles jump from your fingertips. Or your tongue. Or your tongue ring. When used in this way, they definitely can initiate an orgasm. No wonder they are so popular!

As much sensuous fun as they are for erotic explorers, there are people that use them for more intensity in sensation play as part of BDSM. Like you may have read in the book '50 Shades', BDSM is a deep relationship that provides room and structure to explore fantasies. Violet wands have an incredible versatility and provide many types of sensation depending upon the accessories and techniques that are used with them. This variety and versatility makes them very popular with more adventurous types.

You should not be afraid of a violet wand. The sparks coming from it are not dangerous, and they can feel like a spark hopping off a doorknob, if they are set that high. They are very beautiful and visual to watch as they are used, with their glass tubes that glow with different colors and provide the different sensations.

What most people know about using violet wands is merely the tip of the iceberg! Not only can you use them to touch directly to someone (Direct Application), but there is also Indirect Application as well as Reverse application. And there are an infinite number of effects that you can achieve by combining those three basics.

Then there are the advanced techniques. Did you know that you can electrify handcuffs, chain, or chainmail? Wire someone's piercings? Create an electrified pony rather than a wooden pony? You can do brandings with violet wands..you can even set the permanence of a violet wand brand from temporary to semi-permanent or permanent! And how about violet wand fireplay?or breathplay? These are advanced techniques for the adventurous.

Direct Application

As with all toys, test its effects on yourself before you begin, so you become accustomed to its ranges and effects and comfortable with controlling it. Violet wands can create sensations that range from gentle tingles and barely felt vibrations, to sharp shocks. Remember that with many models, you should not operate them for more than 10-15 minutes at a time, so plan your play accordingly. There are other violet wands that will run for as long as you want them to.

Unless you want the violet charge to arc to certain areas of the body, remove all metal jewelry in contact with the skin of your subject. Leave metal where you desire a more intense sensation to occur. Nipple clamps, piercing rings, chains and anything metal will draw the charge to it, and conduct the charge more intensely into the skin.

Insert the desired electrode into the unit, make sure it is seated securely and the wand's cord into an outlet. Take care not to twist the electrode as you insert it, for this might loosen the wand's contacts over time. If the wand has a separate power control, turn it on and begin with the lowest setting.

Apply the charge directly to your subject, experimenting with control settings, different electrodes, and distance from the skin to achieve different sensations. The farther you hold the electrode from your partner's skin, the sharper the shock will be felt. You can also experiment with different attachments to insert directly into the violet wand.

To increase resistance, and thus spark 'bite', dust a little talcum powder onto the area(s) you will be playing with.

Manufactured objects that fit into the wand can be used to achieve different sensations.


Indirect Application

One of the wonderful characteristics of violetwands that can be used to great effect, is their ability to conduct their charge through one person to another. The charge can pass entirely through a human body, even more than one, because humans are primarily made of water which is 3-4% salt. This can be highly conductive to electricity.

Applying the violet wand directly to someone, have them touch someone else. The charge is transmitted through the first person and to the second. Playing a lovely diffusion of neon purple rays over someone's reddened skin, and having them rake their fingers to transmit the charge over a second person's skin is only one of the ways this can be affected. Any body contact, from touching, spanking, or stroking will transmit the charge to the second person. Tongues get a bit numb when they are used in this way, but the sensations of being on the receiving end of an electrically charged tongue can be incredible.

A violet wand chain of people can be created, with the charge passed from one to another until the tingle eventually weakens as it travels and can no longer be felt.

A most fascinating way of employing this trait of violetwands while playing, is in acting as the conductor of the charge yourself. If you hold the wand's electrode firmly in one hand, you can use your other hand to touch your play partner to transmit the charge to them. Your fingertips will emanate sparks as you contact your subject (though not in the same strength as they come directly from the wand).

Interestingly, when you are part of the circuit, the charge passes through you and you will not feel it. Your play partner will definitely feel it, however, as your fingertips, your tongue, even your toes, can be used to transmit the violetwand rays. If you have metal on your body however, such as a watch, piercings, or rings, you may feel the charge being attracted to the metal where it comes in contact with you, depending upon the settings you choose.

To take this effect another step further, if you pick up a conductive toy such as a mylar flogger or a Wartenberg pinwheel while you are holding to the violetwand's electrode. You can then use the toy as an extension of yourself and transmit the charge of violet rays. In this way you are part of the circuit and any backlash of flogger tails will not effect you. The possibilities here are limitless..aluminum combs, knives, metal slappers, ball chain, chain mail..anything conductive can be held in your hand to transmit the charge to your play partner through you.

If you want to use both hands instead of just one, you can purchase a body contact probe, or make a body contact pad for yourself. This is very easily made out of ball chain, cardboard, and heavy duty aluminum foil. The chain is wrapped around a square of cardboard measuring about 2"x4" leaving a long end of ball chain free. Then the whole is wrapped over with the aluminum foil. When the free end of the ball chain is inserted into a piece of metal tubing that fits into the violet wand, and the aluminum-wrapped cardboard held against your skin (inserted under your waistband, rubber-banded or velcroed to a wrist etc) you again become part of the electrical circuit. Then you have both hands free to use to transmit the violetwand charge and torment your partner.


Reverse Application

Use a body contact pad and attach it to your SUBJECT person rather than yourself. Either have them lie down, stand, or sit on the body contact pad, or duct tape it to their body so that there is a good contact between the pad and their skin. You can also duct tape the mushroom electrode into your subject's hand if you don't want to bother with a body contact probe. Then turn on the wand. Your subject person will be electrified from the inside out! When you touch your subject with a metal object such as a mylar flogger or wartenberg wheel, the charge of the violet wand will arc THROUGH their body and shock them from the ..inside... This method gives you the best freedom of movement with a violet wand.

To take this a few steps further, wire the body contact pad into your metal rack, cross, or the chains that your subject is bound with. You will be able to torment them with electricity from ALL directions, when you play with our mylar floggers, fingernail talons or pinwheels!


Extras

A fascinating way of employing the violet wand with a body contact pad is during knifeplay. Hold the electrode in one hand or use a body contact pad to become part of the circuit. Pick up a knife or a metal letter opener in your other hand. When used on a partner, the sensation will feel like cutting.

Chill your chain mail, ball chain flogger, or shock whip. Use it with Indirect application for cold metal PLUS hot sparks!

ORAL SEX! Wire yourself with Indirect Application and let the sparks fly!!!!

These are only some of the techniques that can be used, and with a little imagination, the possibilities are nearly limitless. You will find you get much enjoyment from your violetwand. When you are ready for advanced and edge techniques, you can download or open them below!
