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.

Q&A  Travelling with Vibrator – Airport Security!

Q&A Travelling with Vibrator – Airport Security!

Dear Sh!

I recently purchased two of your items  (the Discreet Vibrator and the Easy Egg Vibe); I will be returning to the USA in June and was wondering …

How I should go about packing the vibrators in my luggage, especially for screening at the Airport?

I have been looking up different sources and some say pack your sex toys in carry-on, others say pack in checked luggage. Either way, I just want the safest means of transportation of the vibes as possible without having them get scanned at Security Check point or worse, taken from me.

Thanks!

Hi there,

Thank you for getting in touch and what a good question! We had to do a bit of research ourselves to answer it. We found out that there is something to say for both options.

Packing your vibrator or sex toy in checked baggage

If you choose to travel with your vibrators packed in your checked-in luggage, we would recommend that, first of all,  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.

We recommend packing your vibrators in a see-through bag
with a little note identifying what they are.

Alternatively, if you still have the original packaging,  pack your toys in that.

Taking your vibrator or sex toy in hand-baggage

If you choose to take your vibrators on the plane, in carry-on luggage, check  any restrictions on items for air travel with your flight company.

The US Travel Security Administration is a good yardstick for which rules will apply for luggage items in general. The TSA states that “tools” with a length of 7 inches (about 17cm) are suitable for carry-on luggage. As you’re travelling with petite vibes, you should be fine!

In the rare case your baggage does get searched, you don’t want one of the TSA’s gloved goons groping your personal playthings, so again,  pack your toys in clear plastic bags.

On top of being a sanitary storage option during travel, see-through bags allow security agents to easily identify your sex toys as the harmless electronic devices they are!

In worse case scenario, if your carry-on baggage DID get stopped and an airport 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.

This will save you being pulled aside for further questioning and
perhaps also avoid them having to rummage through your bag.

Embarrassment is really a non-factor because these people handle thousands of articles every day; your sex toy won’t even qualify for tea-break gossip! 🙂

Given that 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 onto the plane.

Airport security agents have seen thousands of vibrators coming through security scanners, so there shouldn’t be
any issue. If they DO have any questions, you’re on hand to explain, which will put the risk of losing them very low.

If you put the vibrators in  checked-in luggage there’s always a risk that security remove them from your luggage, if they can’t identify them as vibrators.

Carry-on or checked, they will be scanned, so you can’t escape that 🙁

Hope this helps. If you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact us advice@sh-womenstore.com
