Travelling with Sex Toys

Do’s and Don’ts of Travelling with Your Sex toy

So, you’re all ready. Since you got the tickets you’ve been fantasizing about that sexy, all-round fun and frisky love-making you’re going to have. Only one problem: You are afraid your sex toy might prove to be the no. 1 cause of “oh dears” and “my, my” faces at security checks (even though it makes your eyes roll every single time.)

Well, the first and foremost advice we give you is – so what? Embarrassment is really a non-factor in travelling with sex toys because these people handle thousands of articles every day.  Your sex toy won’t even qualify for tea-break gossip!

Nevertheless, maybe the country you’re travelling to isn’t as open about it, maybe your carry-on just won’t fit it in-between the French dictionary and hundred PG tea bags we all take abroad – what do you do and which toys do you take?

Cabin in the Woods

This trip will take you far from the bustling city life, so remote and breathtaking that not even Frodo would find it.

First tip, if you choose to travel with your vibrators packed in your checked-in luggage, we would recommend that you take the batteries (if there are any) out of your toys. You don’t want them to suddenly start buzzing as they go through the scanner and the Security Guards thinking they’re a bomb, rather than innocent little toys! When airport security removes a vibrator, it’s typically because they don’t know what it is, so it’s a good idea to pack your vibrators in a way that makes them easily identifiable. Some recommend to put a little note in the bag where you place them explaining what they are, or a bag that says “This bag contains sex toys”. If you still have the original packaging, pack your toys in that.

If you want a toy that is both mind-blowing and discreet, the Lelo Noa is designed to be worn during penetrative sex to give both partners a special kind of buzz. noa_contents_deep_rose-1It’s not just fun, it’s so stylish and unthreatening it’s hard to think it would attract unwanted attention.

This Peacock Feather Brooch Tickler will get you in touch with your wildest self, and you can even wear it over your coat or shirt!

There is nothing more sexy than strutting proudly through airport security with your sensual tickler. If they look at it twice, they know what it is, and if they know what it is, smile and move along 😉


Romantic Spa in the Mountain

Let the world fade away slowly in a mud bath with your partner’s legs wrapped around you.

Reaching these destinations can be tricky and exhausting, and you will usually need several modes of transport to get to your amazing spa.
If NOT loosing your toys or having them confiscated is your highest priority, we recommend packing your vibrators in your hand luggage (take the batteries out!) and carrying them with you.
If your carry-on baggage gets stopped and a security agent asks ‘what’s in your bag?’ or for you to explain unidentifiable items on the x-ray display; tell it to them straight. Repeat with us: “That is my sex toy and it is fantastic”.
No way around this one, but in adversity playing “I will survive” in your head will always put a smile on your face 🙂

To get in the mood of your spa, the Vibe Enoki Wand Massager looks like it’s been pulled out of a Bond movie.viv--enoki-small-wand-massager-flexi-wand1 Get an amazing massage from a professional, go to your room…and get an amazing massage from a professional! Your and you fun-buddy deserve that 5 star treatment.
And for those times in-between activities where you’re separated, this waterproof Remote Control Egg Vibrator is a lush way to make them remember you at all times 😉

Sex On the Beach is Not a Cocktail

Is January giving you the winter blues? Go to Bali, go to Cape Town! Take your fun-buddy with you, some piña coladas and don’t look back.

When you’re travelling to a culturally unknown place, The US Travel Security Administration is a good yardstick for which rules will apply for luggage items in general (as they are rather tough on their migration laws). The TSA states that “tools” with a length of 7 inches (about 17cm) are suitable for carry-on luggage.

mini-pink-vibratorA lovely vibe to fit is the Mini Pink Vibe (one of our best sellers!), which was recently reviewed by GenderQueerReviews – and she loved it! It’s compact and it’s vibrations so perfect there is no way it will slip your mind to pack it.



And if you want to hide your giggles as you go through security, this Curler Brush Vibrator is so discreet no one will look twice!
To fully get the Brush Vibrator experience, we recommend winking to your partner every time you check your make up.

But most importantly, repeat after us:
“This is my vibrator. And it is fantastic”.

Have a Sexy Festival Season

The sun is starting to shine and the sultry smell of garden barbecues are in the air which can only mean one thing…festival season is upon us!

Pack up your tent, pull on your wellies and make sure you pop over to Sh! for travel-friendly products that will help ensure you have a Raunchy Reading, A Wild Wireless, a Loved-up Leeds and a gratifying Glastonbury (or wherever else you’re taking your lucky selves off to this year!).

The lighter you pack for a festival, the more comfortable the journey (plus it leaves more space for your beer!). This, sadly, means leaving your faithful toys behind during your stay. Not any more!!! We have some AMAZING products that offer you sublime satisfaction without taking up too much space in your backpack.

Lush Pure Lubricant £10
Lush Pure Lubricant £10

Gents, meet your new best friend: The Willaboo (stop laughing, we’re serious!). Willaboo’s are an inflatable male masturbator that offers a completely personalized sensation. During inflation, the inner tubes become full, making for an incredibly tight squeeze that you can tailor to your needs. Then you simply add a generous squeeze of lube – Lush Pure is our personal favourite – and away you go! Best of all it’s body safe and completely disposable. No mess, no fuss!

As much as we would love to take our Rabbits and Wandsalong with us, sometimes it’s really just not practical. However, all that’s needed to replace those for your festival weekend is a quality Bullet vibrator and a sachet of ‘Tickle Her Pink’ for extra added tingles. We highly recommend our small but sweet Sh! Clit bullet, not just because of its handy pocket size, but because it packs a powerful punch too! In need of a little more variety? Our Dual Bullet Vibrator will deliver just that…TWICE. It has two strong buzzy bullets which you can use in many different ways. It’s perfect for dual clit and vaginal stimulation or, if you’re feeling generous, then it’s perfect to give both you and a partner a mutual thrill! It’s compact, quiet and looks a little bit like an MP3 player, so no one will need know your sexy little secret!

Finger and tongue vibrators are also fabulous festival accessories. They’re cheap, simple to use and will provide you with hours of fun in between your favourite band’s sets!

Now for something more practical than sexy: Ladies, we all know that queuing for the loo can be an absolute nightmare during festivals but, never fear, because we have the ultimate solution: The Shewee! It’s perfect for when you’re caught short as it’s small, compact and can be tucked in a bag or pocket – or in a handy Shewee case.

The most important thing if you’re planning on any sexy festival antics is to stay safe. You can never have too many Condoms and Dams packed with you.

We hope you all have a fantastic time this summer and remember: If you can’t be good, be careful…
