So What is a Violet Wand?

by Sir Sparkalot on May.27, 2010, under Electro Sex, Safety, Violet Wand

From the early humble roots of a device labeled as “quack” by the FDA, the violet wand was born.  A violet wand is based on a Tesla coil.  Avoiding the technical terms, this incredible device transforms household current into sustainable, controllable (and we are ALL about control!) high frequency, high voltage and low amperage electrical energy. The wondrous thing about the frequency output range of a violet wand is that it occurs between 400 – 500KHZ.  This range of frequencies isn’t felt by human nerves ONCE IT HAS ENTERED the body.  Violet wands, like their violet ray counter parts emit small amounts of Ultraviolet light only at the point of the spark.  Another by product of your violet wand is ozone. 

 Perhaps the number one question that all prospective Violet Wand buyers ask concerns the “wax” vs “ceramic” core question.  Like others before me, let me assist in ending this enduring urban myth.  Violet wands don’t have a “core”.  The innards of your violet wand consist of electrical coil(s), a rheostat and a capacitor.  It is the “capacitor” that is commonly referred to as a “core”.  Wand capacitors have been made out of a wide variety of materials, glass, mylar, ceramic, wax and polymers are a few of the materials that have been used.  All wands, regardless of their composition will wear out eventually.  Violet wands have a great deal of voltage and high frequency passing through their components, which will weaken them over time.  Wands with either a mylar or wax only capacitor are generally only recommended for 10-15 minutes of use before being allowed to cool.  This is based on how high a setting you are using.  As in so many things, your mileage may vary.

Before You Begin

It was a cold weekend and I thought to warm up my favorite subject with some wand play.  Hot sparks plus cold nights equal fun times.

But before anyone would start playing, be sure that you check out a few items with your favorite (or new) subject.  Violet wands discharge electricity and therefore, most reasonable people know that electrical appliances like a pacemaker are not a good mix.  Electrical appliances would also include insulin pumps, cochlear implants and hearing aids. 

Appliances would include items such as dentures, braces and retainers.  Yes, that is right, dentures although one could argue that  would only be necessary if you are planning on doing oral play with your electrical wand.   Other items that should be discussed are silicone breast implants and yes, possibly even adjustable lap bands with external ports.  The external ports are connected to a tube filled with saline that the doctor uses to adjust the size of the band.  Wand contact there could  cause an internal arc up the saline.   I have put questions out to friends in the medical field and came back with a possible but would need more testing to be sure.  The safest option is to ask if they have one and then avoid the area.

An EMS I know told me about how they have to determine if an unconscious subject has anything in any orifice.  Be safe, do the same through interview instead of having to poke your fingers in all places.  Cover the bases by asking about: Eyes (a no play area), Ears, Nose, Mouth, Vaginal and Anal.  Piercings can be fun to play with using the wand but better to have disclosure before you play than finding out mid-session about a clit ring or Prince Albert.  Granted, finding something like that after asking for disclosure is like putting a target on the area to me. 

You are responsible for the safe play.  If your subject is “too bashful” about answering the questions, tell them you can do it the easy way or the EMS way.
