Violet Wands: Basics to Advance.
In this class you will learn a little about the history and the science about the Violet Wand, and the differences between the Traditional Violet Wand, Solid State and Hybrid Violet Wands.
We will discuss the safety and the three basic types of play. Direct Play, is when the Violet Wand is applied directly to the bottom, or to an implement or tool used in the scene. Indirect Play, the safe application of Violet Wand output to the Top in the scene, and what can be used. Reverse Play, very similar to indirect play, but the Violet Wand output is going directly to the Bottom in the scene instead.
And of course we will talk on the safety precautions that should be observed. This is hands on class and people are encouraged to volunteer or bring your equipment with you.
