Product Comparison – Body Contact

 

 

The second ‘must have’ for any violet wand user is the Body Contact accessory.  A Body Contact accessory allows you to do 2 out of the 3 major violet wand techniques.  Without it, you can not do 66% of all violet wand techniques.   Body Contacts are necessary for Indirect and Reverse techniques, using all your metal conductive toys, floggers, paddles, knives (pretty much anything) and providing for your own electrified touch.  Think electrified oral sex or massage, and you get the idea.

 

Again, most wand businesses offers their own versions but there are major differences in quality, construction and price between them.  In a body contact, there are two important factors to look for, and then you want to look at materials used.  Not every violet wand seller carries all tools and accessories, so we show just those that have the item we are reviewing.  Here, we literally tear them apart for comparison.

 

Output: One big factor you want to be concerned about in a Body Contact accessory is its voltage rating.  A violet wand (should) put out upwards of 40kv MINIMUM or again, you can not do all violet wand techniques.  That’s a lot of voltage to try to carry through you, then a cable, then to your partner.  A cable that has a low voltage rating will not carry the load to where you want it to go, or do what you want it to do, plus there is the risk of overheat and possibly fire to poorly constructed cables.  If you have a low voltage rating Body Contact, plus a low rated wand, you’re going to be very disapointed in the results.  It would be similar to having a toilet paper flogger; yes you can swing it, but its not going to do anything for you. 

 

Safety:  For those who practice SSC, you definitely want a safety gap of some kind built into the Body Contact.  For all old violet rays, and some modern models of devices, in case of a fault with household line current the circuit could deliver deadly house current through the transformer, and through the Body Contact to you.  We consider this a high priority if you do not know the safety measures built into your violet wand or other device, then you should insist on a safety gap.  This is a SAFETY MUST if you have one of the cheap ungrounded models of devices and a MUST for the ungrounded antiques!

 

In addition to these two major factors in Body Contact Construction, we rate on quality of materials and design.

Price:

$49.00

1. This is the only insulation shielded Body Contact on the Market.  It is also the highest rated cable on the market with a voltage rating of 15,000 volts, more than enough to carry a transferred charge and perform all violet wand techniques on even the most powerful wands. Silicone insulation for longest life of the product.

This company makes this product for their very powerful output wands, and so you might be surprised at how strong your own violet wand output can be with this high rated Body Contact. 

Brass contacts. heavy brass handle.  Cable is very flexible and lightweight.  Safety gapped.

The insulation keeps the cable from bleeding through, so there are no accidental kickbacks, and no loss, so it carries the highest amount of current.  You also do not ground out with an insulated cable. This item received the highest marks on design, function, and quality.

2.  At 15,000v, this body contact cable from Violetwanda comes in at #2 for function, safety, quality and design.  This is an unshielded version of the #1, with all the same bells and whistles and safety gap, and the silicone insulation, except for the shielding. 15,000v will handle the most powerful wands, plus carry as much current as possible to you and your partner.  Full brass wand contact and handle, flexible, lightweight and easy to maneuver.

3.  Third on our list is this offering by the Violet Wand Store at www.violetwands.com. 

At 600v, this is actually the second highest voltage rating, and we were surprised to see such a drop from the highest quality versions.  But this cable handled sufficiently well for most violet wand applications and all but the highest power violet wands.  At an excellent price for what it does.  Very smooth professional machined wand contact, and the added bonus of a large probe handle with insulated tip which allows changing position without getting shocked and without having to turn the wand on or off.

 

This is our editor’s pick, due to price, safety, quality construction, that handy little insulated tip, and a voltage rating that is sufficient for most wands on the market and the general wand user.

4. This version of the body contact cable is the 2nd most expensive version on the market.  Turned brass contact and handle.  Votage rating of 600v, gapped.  However, a hefty price tag that is more than double the price of similar models, brings this item in at 2 stars.

 

Voltage rating: 600v

**Two stars

  Bighead Studio  

 40.00

An unusual and non-standard construction of metal wire in a clear rubber housing.  While the metal wire has no voltage rating, the rubber housing did reduce some bleed over regular wire insulation, but rubber deteriorates from high voltage current.  It is safety gapped, giving it one star.  Unrated.  Flat contact pad.

 

Voltage rating: 0

Safety Gapped

 

*One Star


 The remaining models of Body Contact Cables received no stars, due to a lack of both the important construction points for a body contact.  However, notes are provided for your reference.
 Power Tripper ™JT’s Stockroom
 $45.00

An unfortunate piece presented by a usually professional company.  Cable has 0 voltage rating, excessive bleed and NO SAFETY GAP.  A pretty contact pad stamped with their company name does not make up for this safety fault.  Too high a risk to safety.

Company’s photos of this in use have drawn simulated effects, and are not representative of this cable’s actual function.  We give it minus points for the simulated photos as misleading.

 

Voltage rating: 0

Safety gap: NONE

 

Rupert Huse:

The most expensive version on the market, constructed of ball chain attached to a flat contact pad. We are hard pressed to fathom why a length of ball chain and metal plate come to this much money.


Voltage rating: 0

Safety gap: None

 

Also on the market and to be avoided.

Lamp wire.  Sold by a seller on ebay, this lamp wire version body contact is made with regular household appliance wire. 110v wire with no voltage rating, manufactured with the cheapest household wire on the market and Is NOT safety gapped! 

Coaxial cable.  Sold by a phishing exploit website preying on the violet wand community, is a version made with coaxial cable (a very low voltage cable- 5v cable used to bring cable tv signal to your tv.)  Has excessive bleed, no voltage rating.  The safety gap is made of wax and melts almost immediately from spark heat causing product to fall apart within a few times of using it.

    I think and some other articles could use updated. Its very helpful information and saves a lot of time, but its hard to go by information that is several years old. That said I went with Violetwanda’s Body Contact and Im happy with it.
