About the 2012 Survey Results

 

Some men get to spend their time between Christmas and New Years with a beer and a football game.  (How about those Redskins? Romo, you were all over the place.  WTF.)

I have spent my last day of 2012 finishing the publication of the data from the 2010-2012 violet wand surveys.

Many, many thanks to all the respondents.  Your anonymity is assured, and only statistical summaries are shared.

 

The surveys are needed because violet wand products are all over the place, just like Tony Romo.  Some companies miss the play, some try to bluff, some score.  Some play a defensive game ( etc…you get the idea.)  And all products are different with different strengths and weaknesses.  And since The Violet Wand Guild appeared to stop reviewing companies and products with any depth or regularity, there was a huge void to fill.

In addition, a complete and long range survey gives an unbiased and rumorless, dramaless review capability from actual customers who deal with or who have purchased from, the various retailers and suppliers.   No vendor squabbles, no ‘I heard that so-and-so‘.  No ‘but people say that xyz.’   No forum board bullshit or drama, no rumors, etc.  All survey ratings are based solely on objective, quantifiable, and verifiable criteria that is submitted from actual customers over a period of two years.  Other information on pricing, warranties, service information, is taken from the supplier’s own website or other published information that is readily available.

 

There are some improvements and some downgrades over the previous survey that are well worth noting.  There are also some surprises.

 

While the surveys are objective, I have my own opinions.  I am not a fan of the electronic violet wands that began appearing for sale in 2010.  Most are utter and horrible shit because they are beauty salon machines that are being pawned off to the kinkcommunity as useful.   This has lead to an increase of consumer complaints for this type of product.  But even I have to take another look when an electronic violet wand, the Nova violet wand, becomes the top customer violet wand pick for the year.
