violet wand body contact probe cable body contact padViolet Wand Body Contact Cable

A violet wand body contact cable, probe or pad is an important accessory in your violet wand use since it is required for both Indirect and Reverse violet wand techniques.  2/3 of all violet wand techniques are done with this accessory, so don’t miss out.

Never force or jam your contact cable into the wand.  Insert it only till it is held firmly.  Wand collets do their job to hold electrodes and accessories through a friction-grip collet that expands as you push items into it.  If you use excessive force to insert items, this will make the collet grip too tight.  Then when you pull it out, you can forcibly remove their end cap.  You also can stretch your collet too far by using excessive force so that electrodes and accessories do not fit properly.

A proper Body Contact cable has a built-in safety gap of some kind, at either or both ends where the wiring meets the handle or connector.  This ads an additional protection against the possibility of draws on household current caused by a ground fault or where your violet wand does not have a gap (older devices) or the presence of a safety gap is unknown (such as secondhand purchases.)  Ours are safety gapped at one end with an air gap, and at the other with resin so that there is no ‘straight-through’ connection.

Violet Wand current is a high frequency, high voltage current.  Because of its nature, it can pass through many substances including leather, rubber, vinyl, plastic, etc.  In fact, vw current is high enough to pass through the human body.  (this property is what makes Indirect and Reverse techniques possible, by electrifying your own touch.  This means vw current will pass through the wall of all regular body contact probes and pads.  This is normal, and it is called ‘kickback’ if you brush against them accidentally and receive the spark from the contact cable.  It is part of your ‘current management’, just as you would manage your flogger tails to keep them from wrapping.  A high voltage rated cable such as ours with low-kickback will minimize this somewhat so that you do not get ‘straight’ current from the wand as you do with the un-insulated body contact chains.

This means that it is entirely normal for violet wand current to pass through the cable to you when you touch it, since violet wand electricity will pass through wood, plastic, cloth, vinyl, rubber, and even people!  As you work with your wand, you learn to manage the flow of your electrical current, the same way that you manage flogger tails to get them to go where you want to go.

Sparking inside the body contact handle is normal as well, and by design.  This is called the ‘safety gap’ where a gap is built into some violet wand toys so that a violet wand spark has to jump across the gap. Our violet wand body contact cable uses two separate safety gaps of two different types.

Sparks produce heat, so after a time your handle of your BCP will get warm from the sparking in the ‘safety gap.’  It just means it is time to give your contact cable a rest.

Q:I’m getting a spark from the wand knob while using the body contact cable

A: It appears that way, but you’re making the spark.  When you use a body contact cable, YOU are electrified, so anything you touch that is conductive will make a spark jump from you.  It will feel the exact same as if the spark is jumping to you. YOU are electrified by the body contact cable and you are sending the spark.  It doesn’t always happen but everyone is different and some people are more conductive than others.  You can show yourself that it only happens when YOU are electrified but not using the violet wand body contact cable and then turning the wand off and on, no spark will jump.

When you are playing with violet wands, spark kickbacks are going to happen. We can give the electricity paths to travel but sometimes it finds a faster path like if you brush against the body contact or touch a metal table with your leg (or your crotch zipper). And body contacts make a very long path for the sparks through the cable and then through YOU. If you’re one of those more conductive people and its happening for you all the time, a footswitch is recommended.  That way when you are using the body contact cable, turn your wand off and on with a footswitch and you wont create a kickback spark to the knob.
