There are few things more embarrassing then going through customs and having them open your suitcase to see all the sex toys fall out, and today, that can even be dangerous! Find out the best ways to pack your sex toys when going on vacation, including storage, keeping them sanitary, and how to stay discreet.
The easiest way to travel with sex toys is to not take them at all. If you are leaving the country and will have to go through intense customs, you may want to leave them at home and purchase new toys when you get to your vacation country.
Canadian and Mexico borders do not require a passport, but that doesn’t mean you won’t get stopped at the border and have your luggage gone through. If you do decide to take your special toys out of the country with you, you may want to consult websites geared toward the laws and expectations of luggage entering a new country.
Remember that the batteries in your dildo will most likely set off metal detectors, so you might want to think this one through. The best advice for taking sex toys on vacation this way is to use the ones that are made from latex and do not use batteries or have any mechanical–aluminum or steel–parts. The Big Coxx dildo is an excellent choice and has a suction cup for sticking to the walls of the hotel shower. Butt plugs and anal beads are also a good choice when traveling where you will have to go through metal detectors, the anal beads, if in a protective leather pouch, look like jewelry, and I doubt anyone will ask you what the purpose of a butt plug is.
Having said that, suppose you are just going across the country on vacation; in the airports, you may have to deal with the same scrutiny you would expect from a customs agent, but if you are driving, you’re home free.
The best packing material for sex toys is a plastic baggie. These zip to lock and can store flat. If you are taking a blow up toy along, this is the best way to ensure that it won’t get sand or dirt in the plastic, both of which break down the plastic and can cause holes.
Discreet intimate toys are hot topics for the market right now. A dildo or vibrator looks like a lipstick, but can transform at the touch of a button. The compacts are so small that they can be carried in a purse or carry on bag, as on a greyhound, but it’s not best to take them with you in your purse, again, through the plane terminal. Customs agents and security have been known to go through bags and open lipsticks looking for bombs…
So be careful, be discreet, leave the large toys and metal ones at home, pack in zip-loc bags for sanitary reasons, and bon voyage!
