Planning A Sexy Getaway? Here’s What You Need To Know About Traveling With Sex Toys
Make sure you are prepared before buying your plane ticket.
Imagine this: you feel in the mood for a weekend-long getaway to relieve some of the stress you’ve been accumulating.
You find a beautiful, intimate location and buy your tickets…
You plan dates…
You pack your favorite toys to spice things up…
It’s going to be a dream!
You get to the airport and have your luggage checked… Oops! Troubles. You can’t get on the plane because you may be violating some rules.
Don’t worry, we’ll prevent that from happening. Here’s how you can (or can’t!) travel safely and anxiety-free with sex toys.
Tips & tricks for packing
Let’s find the best ways to ensure a smooth journey.
For your luggage, the size shouldn’t matter, but it’s recommended to keep things as simple as possible.
Wouldn’t want the vibrator to go off in the middle of the plane ride, right?
This is a risk-free solution because some airports may have rules regarding alkaline batteries like AA or AAA, so pack the batteries separately in a plastic bag.
Or, even better: treat yourself to a rechargeable item with a travel lock and you don’t have to worry about a thing.
The bad news is that according to Jet Setter, there’s a limit of 3.4 ounces in a quart-sized bag in your carry-on for liquids.
The good news is that we have the perfect solution for you.
Of course, don’t forget to SEAL the lube, if you can. Just kidding, but please make sure there’s nothing on Earth that would cause the lube to spill all over your belongings.
If your lube’s current bottle is too big, get a travel-friendly one that fits the limit we mentioned above.
You should pay extra attention to bondage items, as some of them can look like weapons (for example, whips). It’s best to keep as many as you can home, but handcuffs, nipple clamps, and ropes should be fine.
Pack them in separate bags and add a label so the security knows what each item is. Put them together in your checked luggage, but make it accessible - the risk is still high and you don’t want to lose time going through the entire luggage.
First, pack only non-threatening materials, like silicone. If you had a stainless steel item, it would most likely get confiscated.
Second, invest in vibrators that don’t have a mainstream shape. There are plenty of options to choose from, but keep in mind that the agents can still get suspicious if they think anything in your luggage could be a threat.
Keep your toys in clear plastic bags or in their original bag with a label on them.
This will also prevent the agents from touching your toys - way more hygienic!
If you’re going into the airport looking suspicious or anxious, you’re more likely to trigger some doubts in the security agents. Own your choices, and get ready to offer explanations if they are required.
Country-specific restrictions to know
It may come as a surprise to you that some of the most romantic holiday destinations are also the most restrictive.
DO NOT try to get adult toys into these countries, it’s completely forbidden:
… as well as in the state of Alabama, if you’re traveling within the U.S.
So, there you have it. Equipped with this info, you can pack your sexy toys for a smooth traveling experience (unless you want to go to Thailand).
Here’s a kind reminder: you have NOTHING to be ashamed of if the TSA agents ask questions or search your luggage. We need to normalize having adult toys. Never apologize for having a fun sex life.
However, do your best to respect the rules and avoid any uncomfortable situations.
