Electrifying news: an alternative to violet wands

One of the rarest, most complicated, spectacular and unfortunately fragile erotic toys in the arsenal of serious kinksters has always been the violet wand. Or, to be more precise, it has been since 1903, when it entered the market as a totally inefficient medical instrument, yet excellent to swindle people believing that its mysteriously colored “lightnings” could cure any ailment. The banal truth is in fact that the electrostatic discharges from these tools offer fascinating stimulation possibilities, ranging from a light tickling feeling to actual torture – and their signature buzzing sound and ozone smell do contribute to create intriguing “mad scientist” scenes.

On the other hand, the problem is that their steampunkish technology is extremely prone to breaking and malfunctioning, and since they are expensive antique items they are often impossible to fix. Also, those modern hospital-like thingies now used by beauticians are too sad-looking to enter any respectable playroom.

So, it was to my great satisfaction that I discovered Kinklab’s Neon wand, which reinvents the very idea of violet wands using modern solid-state circuitry similar to those used by camera strobes instead of old-fashioned Oudin coils. Let me translate for the non-electrician types among you: it doesn’t break, it is much less expensive and it is safer – and it is elegant enough to look like something out of Apple. The only potentially negative side to this splendid invention, which you can see in use in this official video, is that its output is way tamer than a traditional model. It means it is more pleasurable, but also that it really won’t fit the needs of heavy BDSM players. Unless…

An accessory called Power tripper can turn the whole human body into an electrostatic conductor. In other words, just brushing your partner’s body will unleash a micro-storm of delicious lightning bolts between your finger and their skin…. And the intensity ramps up noticeably, while keeping it perfectly safe. If you accept a hint, however, please refrain from imitating the evil emperor from Star wars and going «Mwahahahahah!»; I know the instinct will be very strong, but it really tends to ruin the mood.
