A modern violet wand kit that's been specifically designed for at-home use. Kinklab's Neon Wand comes with four attachments to enhance your bedroom bondage, BDSM and fetish play or just add a whole new meaning to 'turned on' during foreplay or sex.
The Neon Wand is a different type of Violet Wand. Modern and sleek with plastic fixtures and a silicone sleeve, Neon Wand brings the Violet Wand out of the age of antiquity and places it at the bedside of modern couples looking for a new way to experiment with sex.
This modern device has been designed to fit perfectly into the sex lives of everyday couples, allowing them to experience a new kind of sexual excitement. With ultra-sensitive controls to help you adjust the level of power gradually and slowly, the Neon Wand offers incredible stimulation that is unlike any other sex toy.
Although associated with bondage, fetish and BDSM, the Violet Wand actually works similarly to feather ticklers, offering a gentle and prickly tickling sensation that can be powered up to something more painful.
Neon Wand comes with four tempered glass attachments to transmit the electricity between the wand and your skin - an Electrode Comb, a Mushroom Tube, a 90° Probe and a Tongue Tube. The larger the tip of the attachment, the softer the sensations it delivers.
Start Neon Wand on the lowest setting and enjoy the gentle tickling prickle that excites your nerve endings. Run the glass attachment along the skin and your body begins to shiver as your nerve endings tingle, accentuating your sexual pleasure. Use during foreplay or sex and experience new levels of sexual excitement with your partner.
Measuring 9 inches in length with a circumference of 5.5 inches at its widest point, the wand features grooves in the handle to enable a secure hold.
A full instructional book is included to help you learn how to look after and best use your violet wand.

A Gentle Introduction to Electrosex
Reviewed: 25 August 2011 by Hella Walkington
I was so ridiculously excited when these appeared in the office. As soon as Jenny was done photographing and the description was in place I was nagging the powers that be to get the product live so I could take the purple version home.
I have a long-term fixation with violet wands and my experience was unfortunately isolated to brief flirtations at fetish fairs and in fetish clubs, but I'd certainly experienced enough to know that I find them very erotic and very cool too.
The Neon Wand is a scaled down, less powerful version of the antique restored kits and this is reflected in the price. For a fully restored kit containing the same basic implements it would cost anywhere between £150 and £200. For the price, this kit provides a great platform for experimentation with violet wands and electro play without making a big financial investment. The good news is that many antique electrodes are compatible with this kit so there's plenty of room for expansion.
For most folks this kit will be more than sufficient to sate their curiosities and provide a good platform for violet wand play. Hardcore BDSM dedicatees may find that the Neon Wand leaves them wanting something extra but will enjoy using it as part of progressive play.
Unfortunately the visual effect that the Neon Wand provides is not as spectacular as the larger kits, but it's still fun with the lights off. The visuals are especially captivating on higher settings, which see a nice flood of colour running through the electrode to accompany the crackling operational sounds.
The sparks given off are relatively small in size and don't leap great distances. You'll need to hold the electrodes quite close to the skin in order to see and feel the sparking.
The sounds and smells are exactly in keeping with antique violet wands. You get the crackling noise that signifies the unit is live followed by a scent that smells similar to a new toaster being used for the first time but more subtle. This smell is ozone, a gas that is released during the operation of violet wands. The amounts that it gives off are very, very low.
It's hard to describe the sensations of Neon Wand as pain thresholds vary so much between people. I personally found the highest setting most pleasurable after working my way up, and not at all painful. Others in the office found the medium settings painful during our in-house testing on curious arms. As with all electrosex devices, starting off at the lowest setting and working your way up will ensure you don't stray outside of your comfort zone.
As advised in the instructions, it shouldn't be held over the same spot for more than 10 seconds as this can cause irritation. I didn't personally experience any red marks or irritation but these can be common side effects with electrosex devices so it's best to test the kit out for sensitivity before using it for sexual purposes so you know what your body can handle.
Once I got the Neon Wand home I was able to put it to better use. The best effect for me comes from holding the wand 1-2cm away from the skin, causing it to spark and send waves of electricity through the glass and into my skin.
The sensation felt like a more subtle version of the violet wands I'd experienced during play at Torture Garden. As the electrical charge is traced along the body it becomes much more aware of everything - from the temperature of the room you're in to the touch of a person or a blanket brushing against your foot. Its ability to enhance physical sensation was not as powerful as with the larger units, but it was definitely there.
I tried out each of the electrodes in turn, starting with the comb, which I personally preferred out of all of the attachments. The comb can traced along the body to cause multiple sparks that tease and tickle the skin but is best used to comb the hair. The tingling sensations leave you feeling ultra alert to touch and give you the instant goosebumps that really accentuate sexual contact. Receiving a sensual hairbrush with the comb electrode while being kissed and stroked is an incredible turn-on for me. I quite like having my hair brushed by others anyway but I definitely prefer this.
The tongue electrode feels great in the mouth and is nice to suck thanks to the curvy shape. When holding it away from the tongue, it sparks beautifully and creates a sensation not dissimilar to licking batteries (yes, I learned to lick batteries from my grandfather as a way of seeing if they contained charge) but much more intense. There's something very sexy about having your mouth, lips and tongue teased with a sparking probe, it's all very sci-fi.
The smallest electrode provides the most intense electro stimulation and can be used to great effect around the nipples and genitals for precise stimulation. The feeling is much more intense than the larger electrodes and would best serve those looking for a pleasure/pain balance. I prefer to feel sensations across a wider expanse at the same time so I doubt this electrode will see much use in my home. In antique kits this electrode could be used to cauterise the skin, but you won't get anything near that concentration of power with this set, so don't fret. At worst you'll get some faint red marks, but still use with caution while you're getting used to play.
The mushroom electrode was ideal for stimulating larger areas of the body and is great to start things off. Running this 1-2cm above the skin on the insides of the arms, along the neck and collar bone and down the backs of the legs felt amazing and did just as much if not more for me than a massage, ensuring my body was ultra-sensitive to any touch.
I wouldn't suggest that violet wands are ever a main event in themselves, but are more of an enhancement to other play. Using them in a similar way to feather ticklers enhances your physical sensation, makes you psychologically more alert to your sexual enjoyment and builds sexual anticipation, all of which leads to a more satisfying sexual encounter. For tease and denial I don't think I could recommend a better tool.
- Compact kit good for experimentation.
- Needed more power for me.
- Bottom line
- A great beginner's set to get you to grips with violet wand play.

Love Shock Baby
Reviewed: 05 September 2011 by BashfulBabe, a Straight Going Steady Female
Out of all the things I love, pain and shiny things come fairly top of the heap. Electric play has always intrigued me, and violet wands in particular have been on my lusting-after list for quite a while. However, the olde stylee refurbished wands run into the hundreds, and to be honest, are so tricksy with the wiring that it's a bit of a gamble unless you know really well the person doing the restoration and their rep (and the good ones rarely have 'budget' lines!). Plus there's the additional costs of sourcing extra attachments, blah blah blah... It's a big outlay, and my wallet is a little on the undernourished side.
I'd used some Kinklab products before, and they do seem to have a position of 'accessible kink', making things that are unlikely to satisfy the more extreme members of the BDSM scene, but are cheaper than most, very beginner-friendly, and the kind of thing that's not so 'newbie'-aimed as to be discarded if you're more than an idle dabbler.
One of the most important parts of the kit is actually the box. Honestly, it sounds silly, but when you think about how delicate the glass attachments are, you really do want to know that they're not just rattling around getting chipped and damaged. More so than most sex toys, as a chip here could be genuinely dangerous. Remember, gentle or not, this is still electricity we're talking about, and it's not really the kind of thing you want to take chances with! The case is satisfactory, shaped sponge with space for all the parts, and a magnet-lock on the lid. But it's not great, there's a good amount of wiggle room in the slots for the attachments, and the section for the wand itself doesn't really fit it and the plug all that easily. It's safe for storage, and it's so well packed that I wouldn't have any concerns about it post-delivery - but still be sure to give them a thorough check over, and make use of Lovehoney's awesome refund/exchange policy if there's any causes for concern! - but I do feel like if I was carting it around I'd need to pack it myself, if only for my own peace of mind.
The wand handset itself is what they refer to as a 'solid state device'. Roughly translated, that means that it's securely packed, so there's no wires rattling around getting damaged or sending surges here and there. It's got a bit of weight to it, bit it fits comfortably in my hand and gives a sense of security that it's not going to break or explode or anything. There's very little to it: the cable comes out one end, the attachments slip neatly into the other, and there's the power dial at the cable end. I didn't like how the power dial has no settings as such, just a sliding scale - Off to Max - as it'd be nice to gauge exactly where someone's preferred level was and go back to that without faffing, but that's a minor issue. It did reassure me the way it 'clicks' on or off, so you can be sure that it's off and not just very very very low before plugging it in or changing attachments or what have you.
The attachments look incredibly flimsy, to the point that I was scared to touch them for fear they'd shatter! But, while they are glass and thus not to be kicked about the place, they're sturdy enough to withstand the pressure needed to slip them in or out of the handset. One thing that's mentioned in the booklet is the option of getting additional attachments, and while they refer to a Kinklab branded body contact attachment, I haven't been able to source one anywhere, not even on their own site. That may be in the works. If you are looking to get more attachments, they do tend to be standard sized, but do your homework first: there's a tiny difference between US and EU standard sizing, so small you will not be able to tell by looking (Kinklab do both versions, but LH are selling the EU one, so that's what you need to look for). There have also been reports of people selling inferior quality attachments on the internet. You should be perfectly safe sticking to the attachments in the kit - there's a decent variety - but if you are looking to move on, don't go blindly.
When using the wand, I tried first playing with it from a visual perspective, just to get comfy with it. Turning the power up and down was interesting, as both the hum and the glow kept pace. I have to say, neither was very impressive below the halfway mark, even in the dark in silence. But when on full throttle, it looked and sounded a little scary. The threat of it makes a partner/victim much more receptive to the shock, so playing about with it before zapping them should not be underestimated! It does make a nice little crackle when arching - again, only really noticeable on the upper half of the power dial - so there's no fear of it losing its intimidation factor too much before use. I know the first few times I went to zap myself, just the aural cue made me leap away as if bitten, even though I wasn't feeling any actual pain.
It does mention that it "does not quite reach the sometimes painful levels that traditional electric ray wands can" in the brochure, and to be honest just from the price and the brand reputation I wasn't expecting it to be as intense as some of those I'd seen used with extreme pain in mind. I was still a little disappointed at just how gentle it was, but then both myself and my OH enjoy pain, so perhaps my standards are just a little off. At the lowest setting, it took several seconds of steady 'zapping' to get a tingling sensation, and at the highest, it was about as powerful as the standard static shock I'd often get from the car door or stairway railings. It also needed to be quite close to the skin to arch, which is a bit of an issue, as it removes the option of increasing intensity by increasing the distance of the 'jump' as with traditional wands, as well as making it incredibly easy to lose momentum as a slight squirm could make contact between the electrode and the skin, stopping it from arching.
The real beauty of the wand comes from what you do when you turn it off. Despite the lack of excessive pain from the zapping itself, the whole process does wake up all the nerves, and make the skin that has been affected extra sensitive. Using it before moving on to a session of spanking, or further sensory play, will make it all the more intense. At one point, having been rather enthusiastic using it on myself (I'm a firm believer of sauce for the goose being sauce for the gander, I like to know what I'm doing to someone else!), I gave my very tingly thigh a slap. It felt the same as if someone gave me a crack when I have pins and needles after lying on my leg wrong! So there is definite scope for pain, just it comes from combining the wand with 'mild discomfort' play. Stopping using the wand before the area becomes 'spiky' still means that sensations are intensified, so if pain's not your thing, using it before a massage or more sensory play could add a whole new dimension things. Personally, I'll be using it more as a build-up, almost a prep-tool, as between the psychological aspect of building fear, and the physiological intensifying whatever lies beyond, it's great for getting the most out of whatever I'd be doing normally. But in and of itself, it's rather underwhelming.
All in all, it's worth the price tag. Most of the time, you'd pay about the same for the attachments alone, and assuming you move on, then the fact that it can take the traditional attachments and use them with modern (safe) wiring, or the attachments from this kit used with a refurbished wand (assuming the correct voltage/sizing of course!), means it is more than a decent investment regardless of whether you'd want to move on or not.
- Easy to use, safe and clean, no need for additional bits.
- A bit weaker than I'd have liked.
- Bottom line
- Great for lighting up nerves before play, but too weak to stand alone.

Great for beginners
Reviewed: 04 May 2014 by lesbanic, a Bisexual Going Steady Female
We love electric play, and the Kinklab Neon Wand is great, especially for beginners.
With four attachments varying in intensity, there is so much you can do with the product. I would recommend buying the contact pad attachment for even more fun, which is especially fun for using pinwheels or other conductive materials.
Something we found really fun to use with the contact pad is a standard metal head massager. Just remove the protective plastic at the end and off you go!
Although it is great for beginners, the charge is limited and therefore if you are very used to electrical play it is not very powerful. There are more powerful ones out there, but you do have to pay the price for the stronger charge.
- Easy to use, aesthetically pleasing and well made.
- Not very powerful.
- Bottom line
- Good for beginners.

The Neon Wand is lots of fun when combined with a blindfold, some restraints and a partner with a slightly sadistic side.
Hearing the noise build up and just waiting in anticipation for the incoming shock is quite an experience as you never quite know when it is going to hit you.
The shocks are more of a tingle than anything else and aren’t really that painful, but they can be quite intense when used on some of the more inmate areas of the body. They can be quite a lot of fun when used just right.
I would say the item is a bit tame and could do with more power, but when in the right hands, under the right conditions and in the right areas, it can be a lot of fun.
- The noise it makes.
- Needs a little more zap.
- Bottom line
- One of our more interesting toys.
