A violet wand is an impressive looking thing; it glows, buzzes and hums - it even has a particular smell. This, combined with a healthy fear of electricity can put people off the idea of electro stimulation. Never fear, Victoria Blisse explains the not so mysterious mysteries of violet wand use to keep you safe and stimulated! 

 

Buying a Violet Wand

There are two kinds of violet wand, the mechanical and solid state.  The solid state is best for beginners, in fact, many experienced users prefer them too. They are easier to use, lightweight and can run for ages without any problems. The only advantage with a mechanical one is it has double the power. Starting out though, you want to buy a violet wand kit that's easy to use and the solid state units have plenty of power and scope for pleasure pain, so don’t worry, you'll get lots and lots of use out of your beginners kit. 

You also need to think about the attachments (called electrodes) that come with your unit. You want a variety of shapes and sizes. The smaller the surface area that touches the skin, the more intense the shock will be. Be sure you have a variety of sizes so that you can move up from wider implements (bell-shaped ends, comb-like ends) to pointier, more intense ones. 
 

Violet Wand Safety

  • Do not use on anyone with heart problems, pacemakers, insulin pumps (or other internal electrical devices) or nerve damage. 
  • Do not use while pregnant, on irritated or broken skin or near eyes or inside ears or inside the vagina. 
  • Do not use near water or flammable liquids.
  • Keep the wand moving, using it on the same area of skin can cause sunburn-like damage. If the wand is moving this will be minimal and will fade, it can be intense if used over the same area for too long. 
  • Use over naked flesh. The electricity can be felt through clothing, but some materials could melt or get hot and cause nasty burns.  
  • Remove all metallic jewellery including piercings. 
  • Always check your equipment is in good condition. Do not use any cracked electrodes.

Getting Started

Keep the violet wand turned off until you have attached the electrode. These are the glass attachments that come with your unit. Start off with the wider attachments that have lots of surface area and make sure you start out at the very lowest setting.  Test the electrode on yourself first, on your inner arm, for example, so you know how it feels before running it over your sub. 

When you start it is best to keep to the area below the waist, legs and buttocks are wonderfully fleshy. You can move up to arms and back and even over the head as long as you are careful to avoid areas like the eyes, ears and across the centre of the chest. Build up your confidence first. 

Keep the violet wand moving. Don't let it rest on one area for more than a few seconds. You will see the skin redden, when this happens move the electrode to another area of flesh. A person with lighter, more sensitive skin will redden quicker than others, so be observant. One partner might redden much faster than another. 

Experiment with holding the violet wand closer and further away, ramp up the dial to move from gentle tickling and sensual stroking to more intense prickling and pricking pain.  

Turn off the unit every time you change the electrode and be sure you start from the lowest setting each time - this will avoid any nasty unwanted shocks. 

Don’t be alarmed if you smell something! Violet wand use creates ozone and it can smell 'tinny'. The smell is perfectly normal and safe as long as the space you are in is adequately ventilated. A large room will be fine, if you are in a smaller space, be sure a window or door is cracked open.

Aftercare

In addition to your usual aftercare routine, check your sub/bottom’s skin for any signs of burning. If there's reddening of the skin, treat it like you would sunburn by applying aloe vera or other cooling gels - this should subside relatively quickly but can last a few days. 

Do not use the violet wand again until the skin is fully healed. 

You should now have all you need to know to get started with violet wand play. If you want more information or a practical demonstration on violet wands, have a look for munches and dungeons in your area. There are often workshops you can attend to find out more. And you can always ask your questions and share your experience in the fetish.com forum too!
