Are you ready to dust off your suitcase and add a little spice to your next adventure with your boo or B.O.B.? FunLove is right there with you! That’s why we wanted to share these helpful travel tips regarding the do’s and don’ts of discreet travel-friendly sex toys—because believe it or not, your favorite pleasure devices and battery-operated boyfriend could trigger an international incident if brought to certain countries. A few U.S. states may even frown upon you bringing your adult extracurricular accessories.
International Travel Considerations
At FunLove.com, you’ll find a wide variety of adult products to safely explore and push your sexual boundaries to experience new delights. That being said, there are certain boundaries that need to be left fully intact and not touched at all when you’re traveling internationally.
More specifically, do not try to bring a sex toy with you to any of these countries where sex toys are banned:
|The Maldives||United Arab Emirates||Kuwait|
|The Cayman Islands||Thailand||Indonesia|
Note that this may not be a complete list, so just make sure that you are aware of the customs and social mores of your destination prior to departure.
You also need to be aware that these same countries, and possibly others, may ban various kinds of contraceptives. Again, just do your due diligence and bring a doctor’s note with you to cover medications and contraceptive device prescriptions just in case.
Should you or your luggage get flagged at a border, travel experts state that you should always tell the truth. You can also request a private screen with a customs / TSA agent to keep the convo a bit more discreet. And if a situation should start to escalate to a fearful level, you have the right to demand to speak with someone from your country’s embassy. Which brings up another good point: make sure that you have these contact details readily available if you should ever need them.
Traveling with Sex Toys in the United States
There are only two states in the US where you may want to think twice about traveling with sex toys. The first is Alabama. It’s not illegal per se to bring adult toys with you. However, since it is illegal to sell sex toys in the state (unless needed for unspecified "medical, scientific, educational, legislative, judicial, or law enforcement" purposes) you may come in contact with a strict TSA or airline agent that will confiscate your item(s).
The other state is Texas. In this southern destination more is not considered better. Currently, it is illegal to possess/own more than six vibrators.
Sex Toys and BDSM Gear to Leave at Home
Now that we’ve covered international and US domestic travel restrictions, let’s go over a few item specifics when traveling to less strict destinations. For instance, anything that could be categorized as a weapon should be left at home. This could include stainless steel toys and some BDSM gear. Basically if in doubt, leave it at home. Or, just do so knowing that it might get confiscated.
You can always check on the TSA website too to find out what you can bring. We did a search for “dildo” and came up aces for carry-on and checked bags under the category of “Toys (Adult).” To be on the safe side, however, you can always snap a picture of your toy(s) or other adult items if they are not listed and send them to AskTSA on their Facebook Messenger or Twitter. No need to be shy about it either.
How to Pack Sex Toys for Travel
Most people do not want their “unmentionables” on public display if something in their carry-on item gets flagged. Just think how disconcerting it would be if your rabbit was pulled out and inspected in front of a group of strangers. Same goes if your body piercings, kegel balls, or butt plug set off an alarm.
To help keep you from embarrassment and on track, review this step-by-step list of instructions on how to pack sex toys for travel.
- First, remove batteries and charging cords. (Remember, common household batteries are allowed in both carry on and checked baggage. Lithium batteries with 100 watt hours or less may be carried in a device in either carry-on or checked bags. Loose lithium batteries are prohibited in checked bags.)
- Second, remove any hidden body jewelry and internal devices prior to going through the airport security check.
- Third, plan on packing everything in checked luggage. If you don’t plan on checking any luggage, only bring small toys with you such as bullets / minis, small butt plugs, kegel balls / eggs, strokers, cock rings, etc.
- Fourth, seal your sex toys and BDSM / fetish gear in clear plastic baggies. Doing so will help protect them from coming into direct contact with anyone’s hands but your own.
- Fifth, make sure that lube and toy cleaner are in containers sized 3.4 ounces (100 milliliters) or under. It’s important to note that even if your 6 ounce bottle of lube is more than half empty when you go to pack, it’s still a no-go.
- Lastly, place them in with your checked luggage cushioned between soft items in the middle of your luggage.
