Sparking Desire: Intro to Violet Wand w/ Diva Darling

A glow of pale lavender, the crackle of electromagnetic energy, a tingle, a tickle, a buzz like you have never known. If you've been intrigued by the idea of erotic electric play or fascinated by the mad-scientist appeal of the violet wand, but haven't had an opportunity to try it out, this workshop is for you!

From its medicine-show debut as a cure-all medical device in the late 1800's, this fascinating and unusual toy was eventually adopted by the kink community for its delightfully unique turn on sensory play. It can seem intimidating, but you'll learn that the violet wand is fairly easy to learn and opens up many creative and devious possibilities.

Lotus Blooms educator Diva Darling will take you on a brief trip through its quirky history, including showing you an actual working antique wand. The workshop will also cover:

  • How to set up and use your violet wand and its attachments

  • How to use your own and/or your partner's bodies to conduct electric kisses and caresses

  • What other toys pair especially well with violet wand play-- and which to avoid!

  • Ideas for intensifying or getting creative with your wand play

  • Cleaning and caring for your kit

A violet wand is an investment, so you'll also get the chance to experience a little taste of this wand's magic and decide if you like it enough to own one. See if you can resist the temptation to let loose a maniacal laugh and declare, "My libido-- IT IS ALIVE!"

About Your Educator: Diva Darling is a burlesque performer, an event producer, and has been a kinkster in the BDSM scene for almost 20 years, with a number of workshops under her waist cincher for Black Rose, Turtle Hill Sacred Sexuality Beltane, and Lotus Blooms, among others. When she's not acting as Lotus Blooms' resident marketing maven, she performs throughout DC and regionally, co-produces the storytelling-meets-sex open mic Smut Slam DC, and blogs at divamojo.com.

If you are running late:

Because the topics of sex, sexuality, intimacy, etc are so personal and often taboo in our society, our staff and educators work very hard to create events that make people feel comfortable learning and sharing. Much of the working agreements and standards of behavior tend to take place at the beginning of our short workshops. As such, if you arrive more than 25 minutes after the workshop is scheduled to begin, we will not be able to allow you to join this time around and your tickets will be forfeited. We hope that this helps to encourage people to come on time and enjoy the entirety of the event, and create a comfortable space for everyone attending!

Cancellation:

We have a limited number of seats available for each workshop in order to maintain a comfortable environment for everyone. Please be mindful that others may be interested in attending sold out workshops. If you must cancel, please notify Lotus Blooms at least 48 hours prior to the workshop and you will receive a store credit, less a $10 cancellation fee per ticket. Cancellations made with less than 48 hours' notice are not eligible to receive the store credit. A full refund will be issued only in the event that Lotus Blooms cancels the workshop.

To cancel your ticket more than 48 hours in advance for the gift card (minus the transaction fee), email info@lotusblooms.com and we will account for the date the cancellation was sent.
