How to Travel with Sex Toys

Traveling with sex toys has been something of a hot topic lately.  While it’s  legal to bring sex toys along, there are a few things you should keep in mind to ensure a stress-free flight.

Good Things Come in Small Packages

While this seems obvious, some travelers believe they need to bring along a wide variety of toys wherever they go. For some it fits with their lifestyle, but if you’re simply vacationing with your girlfriend for a quick weekend getaway you should really think twice about packing your entire sex toy kit. Just MacGyver that shit if need be! We’re sure you can figure out how to DIY your own nipple clamps or BDSM restraints. When packing your toys, be sure to keep them small and unobtrusive. We’ve heard one too many stories about girls getting pulled aside to see what that “big piece of salami is doing in your carry-on.” So leave your Fleshlight or your girlfriend’s beloved Hitachi Magic Wand at home, and make sure whatever you’re packing is small. Think vibrating rings, Tenga Eggs or a bullet vibe.

Wrap It Up

If, for some reason, your bags do get flagged for a search, you wouldn’t want some sweaty TSA agent touching your toy. That is, unless you want to visualize their paws all over your nether regions every time you use it. Pleasant, right? Along with all of the germs they’re unknowingly carrying, keep in mind they’re poking and prodding around in hundreds of bags a day; it’s just common courtesy. Who would want to accidentally wear a cock ring as a fashion accessory? Bag your small toys in separate clear plastic bags and stuff them between items so they don't go flying out.

Know Your Shit

Pop quiz: how many sex toys are you legally allowed to own in Texas? The answer is three. Aside from being the strangest law we’ve heard all day, it’s laws like this you may not even think of while crossing borders with sex toys. Another thing you should keep in mind is that if you’re traveling with lubrication, it counts as a liquid, which means that 3.4 ounce rule applies to you if you’re stashing it in your carry-on. And if at any point you feel threatened or offended by a TSA agent (which is something that happens more often than not lately with those who travel with sex toys), please speak up! It’s not just you that particular agent is giving a hard time to.

Check Yourself

With all this newfound sex toy travel knowledge, you’re probably thinking to yourself, “Why aren’t these people just throwing their toys in their checked bags?” That is a question we once asked ourselves, too. But who’s to judge those who cannot bear the idea of separating from their LELO for that long. If you’re safely stowing your toys in your checked bags, be sure to remove any batteries, and if it’s chargeable, now would be the time to use your lock features! And if for some reason your girlfriend believes that she really needs a larger toy for the trip, be sure that it’s not in her carry-on. According to the TSA, “tools” more than seven inches are not allowed on the plane, especially those that appear “club-like.” Frequent travelers with sex toys have also told us that it’s in your best interest to pack your BDSM accessories in your checked bags as well, since they can be mistaken for something much more sinister.
