It was in a flogger closet. Yup. I was very impressed by that closet, I will admit, but the one item within it that drew my attention most was that Violet Wand.
For those of you who aren't familiar with a Violet Wand (VW), I did a little research. Seems the VW is usually associated with Electricity Play. Depending on the setting used, the sensations provided can range from a light tingle all the way up to the feeling of being burned. The Wand portion is the base, a Telsa coil-type electrical transformer. They're engineered to be safe for use as a sexual toy. The Violet part comes from the electrodes used with the Wand. Most of these electrodes are made of glass tubes and have the same type of gas inside them as plasma balls or neon signs. Usually the color is purple (violet), but you can find electrodes with different colors from the manufacturers.
I know some people who vehemently refuse to have anything to do with VWs. Who find nothing interesting or arousing in being shocked. For me though, I like the way the hairs stand up on my skin and the tingling sensations follow the path of the electrode, lingering like a phantom touch for just a few moments, a little aftershock, if you will.
Now that's a present! LOL
