How To Travel With A Sex Toy

While many people are yet not taking the risk of booking a foreign holiday, the world is slowly reopening again, and after 16 months of being shut up indoors, we’re all eager to get away and get some sunshine on a beach, with a cocktail in hand.

But if you’re travelling, you’ll be wanting to make sure you stay sexually sane, especially if you do find yourself needing to quarantine after returning from an Amber-listed country! You’ll also need to keep your favourite sex toys safe in transit, and most likely keep them out of sight.

However, there are rules about taking battery-powered devices on aircraft, which could make things awkward! We have a brief guide for travelling with your sex toys.

There are no rules per se concerning sex toys while flying, but there are strict regulations about carrying lithium batteries on aircraft, as they can explode if they short circuit. This means you cannot put battery-powered sex toys in the hold of the aircraft and will need to carry any toy with integrated batteries in your hand luggage.

If the battery can be removed, then you can split the parts up, only needing to keep the batteries - packed well in non-conductive materials - in your carry on.

You’ll also need to make sure your toys are packed well, as the soft material they can be made from easily pick up dirt and lint, and you want your toy to remain hygienic for obvious reasons. You could wrap it in clingfilm, or a zip-lock back for hygiene, and then wrap it in a few pairs of socks to prevent it from being damaged.

Remember to pack lube and some toy cleaner too!

You will also want to prevent the device from being switched on by accident during transit too. Some more advanced toys may have a flight mode, but this is rare. Ensure toys are packed with plenty of padding!

And if a customs agent does ask you to show the contents of your luggage, don’t panic. It will be nothing they haven’t seen before, and you’d be better to be brazen, just roll with it, and shrug it off!
