How to travel with sex toys

Traveling with sex toys doesn't need to be complicated. Whether you're jet-setting across the globe or embarking on a weekend getaway, here's a straightforward guide to ensure your intimate items stay safe and discreet during your travels.

Know the destination regulations

Before you pack your bags, familiarise yourself with the laws and regulations regarding sex toys in your destination. While most countries permit personal use items, some places have restrictions or require certain documentation, such as the United Arab Emirates or Thailand. A quick online search or consultation with official sources can save you potential headaches at customs.

Pack wisely

Consider the size and material of your toys when packing. For fragile items, such as glass toys, use padding or bubble wrap to prevent damage during transit. It's also a good idea to pack your toys in a separate ziplock bag or pouch within your luggage for easy access and organisation. Our discreet pouches are ideal for such occasions. Alternatively, wrapping your toys in clothing is a viable option.

For larger items like wand vibrators, oversized dildos, metal toys, or BDSM gear, be prepared for possible manual inspection. You can request a private inspection in a separate room if the public inspection makes you uncomfortable.

Note that heavy items, like metal dildos, might be considered weapons and could be confiscated. Packing these in checked luggage is recommended to avoid issues.

Check transportation guidelines

Confirm that your airline permits sex toys in both carry-on and checked luggage. Ensure compliance with regulations regarding batteries and rechargeable items to prevent delays at security. For battery-powered toys, remove the batteries and store them in a ziplock bag. Rechargeable toys often have a Travel Lock feature to prevent accidental activation. Alternatively, use the toy until it's fully discharged before your trip.

Navigate security screening

Although passing through security with sex toys might seem daunting, remember that security personnel are trained to handle such situations with discretion. If concerned, you can place your toys in a separate bin during screening or inform the security agent quietly. Avoid locking your toys in hard-to-open containers to avoid unnecessary complications during inspections.

Clean and sanitise

Ensure your toys are clean and sanitised both before and after your journey to maintain hygiene and minimise health risks. Luggage isn't always clean, and inspections are possible. Use mild soap and water or a specialised toy cleaner, and let the toys air dry completely. If traveling with liquid cleaner, ensure its size complies with airline regulations.

With these straightforward tips, you're set for a worry-free journey, allowing you to enjoy your adventures to the fullest. Safe and pleasurable travels!
