No Longer availableno longer available

When I updated this site’s list of resource links, its sad to see many violet wand resources go MIA. Defunct.  So this list is a nod to those who have gone who have contributed in an impactful way to the history of the violet wand and its community.

Carter Stevens

Carter Stevens

In addition to his major work in 1970s and 1980s film, Carter Stevens (screen name) organized the first BDSM events.  His website sold various gear and carried Master model devices in the late 1990s for a short time before he retired. Masters were the models with the notorious wax capacitor and wax-potted high voltage coil. 

John Warren

 John Warren, author, had a website where you could purchase his books such as “The Loving Dominant” during the late 1990s.  The site, Diversified Services, Inc, sold other toys but also made available Master violet rays with their wax components.

Donnie Rice

Donnie Rice

Donnie K. Rice began building violet wand kits for friends in 1994. A few years prior to his death he set up a commercial website called Erotec where the kits could be pre-ordered. But violet wands were still largely unknown, and only a small number of his kits with his proprietary dark red body violet wand made it out into the world.

In my research, I have an old checklist that Donnie and his wife Lela Hughes-Rice, wrote about recognizing the differences between Domestic Violence and S&M.  It is also outdated, but is interesting as a picture of the times. pdf file: DV vs SM

Roger Abanid

Roger T. Abanid’s contributions began in 1999 by investing in new violet wand manufacturing to take the place of Donnie Rice after Rice’s passing. When the popularity of violet wands began to take off in the early 2000s, he also invested into their research and development under the International Violet Wand Guild which he helped form.  He later became Chairman of the IVWG and served until he passed away in 2012.

lost in time

In the 1990s and early 2000s, few people were ‘out’ and little information made it onto the internet, except onto quaint, personal websites hosted by free providers like geocities and angelfire. So much information has been lost that this homage to these early contributors will hopefully give them some of the remembrance that they deserve.
