Sex Toy Travel Tips!

By: Good Vibrations

travelBecause your escape can still be erotic. Whether it’s a weekend getaway, trip for work, or off to see your bestie tie the knot, you’ve probably like many of us who’ve got some traveling coming up. But leaving home doesn't mean you have to leave behind all your comfort and pleasure. Many of our toys make excellent travel companions! 

Here are some tips & tricks for traveling safely with sex toys: 

🧳Check It

Pack toys in your checked luggage in a clear plastic bag, on top of clothes + other items- so if they come up on the scanner, TSA doesn't have to go digging through your stuff, and the clear plastic bag can prevent direct handling of your precious bedside friends.

🧳Keep it Discreet (if you want)

If you're bringing your toys in a carry-on and don't want to have awkward eye contact with a TSA agent brandishing your realistic dildo- try something that doesn't obviously look like a sex toy to the untrained eye. Vibrators come in all shapes and sizes- like the lipstick-sized Tango X, or the Womanizer Liberty, which comes with a built-in case. But if you do get snagged by an agent questioning your toys, remember- it's nothing they haven't seen before, and there is no shame in prioritizing your pleasure whether at home or away! Practice this line: "That's a personal item."  

🧳Don't Cause a Buzz

For vibes and other toys that make noise- make sure that batteries are taken out and stored separately. For rechargeable toys, either wear out the charge before traveling (just don't forget to pack the charger!) or see if your toy comes with a travel lock, which many now do! Locking toys prevents them from turning on while in transit if they accidentally bump against the power buttons. Big save!

🧳Portion Control

Many airlines restrict bringing liquids in containers over 3.4 ounces. Lots of great brands like Please and Sliquid offer handy 2oz sizes of their products, or you can get an empty travel container and fill it up with your favorite lubricant from home (just make sure it's sealed tight before take-off!). Many lubes will even make travel friendly spill proof bottles to travel in style. Massage products like these come in handy travel friendly sizes that are perfect for planes.

🧳Travel Sizes Beyond Liquids

Saving space doesn't mean you have to compromise leaving your favorites behind. Products like the Liberator Fascinator Throw now come in a travel friendly size so that it can go with you to any hotel or homestead. Disposable items like Tenga Eggs also make a great companion for trips.  

🧳Know the Rules

For glass or metal dildos, and many BDSM toys, especially items that could be considered weapons- like Wartenberg wheels, e-stim devices, bondage gear, or impact toys- understand that these items may be confiscated for safety, and could compromise your trip. Plastic versions of pinwheels may be easier to bring along, but should probably still be checked vs carried on. Also, always keep in mind where you're headed off to- some countries have restrictions on and laws against the possession of sex toys, no matter how small or discreet your pleasure products are. In some cases, shipping them to your destination might be the best bet.  

Remember, friends, no matter where you travel, pleasure awaits -- Enjoy your trip!
