Sex toys and holiday makes the greatest formula for good sex. Recent studies have shown it's easier for couples to get great sex when they are overseas and it's not hard to see why. One of the main factors for no sex is mainly due to stress, and when you're on a holiday, it takes away stress. If you are going on holiday and want to take something a little extra with you to enjoy that down time, then we've got some recommendations on how you can take your favourite sex accessories with you. If you are travelling with sex toys for the first time, below are some tips that we would like to share with you:
Google on the country's rules and regulations on sex toy
The first thing you need to think about is to understand the country's culture and regulation. You might be surprised that there are some places in the world where sex toys are prohibited. You do not want to be stopped at the airport for smuggling illegal items on board, and end up being fined or jailed. Although this is rarely the case, it's always good to play safe. One great tip will be to leave the toys that could be mistaken for a weapon like handcuffs, ropes, heavy metal dildos and whips in your bedroom instead of the airport. For example in Texas, it's ok to bring 6 dildos, but 7 dildos are not allowed.
How much lube is allowed
The next thing we want to talk about is lube. There are certain regulations in place for liquids, aerosols and gels for your hand held luggage when departing international airports. Your lube must be stored in a container of 100ml or less and sealed in a trasparent, re-sealable bag. These are the standard requirements for packing, so if you are carrying your lube, do ensure that it's less than 100ml.
Of course, if you've got any batteries for your toys, do take them out from the flight, and with batteries, it's probably best practise to buy a new pack, and leave them in that packaing and only open when you get to your destination. One easy way to get around the battery issue is to get a rechargable toy with you. With USB rechargable toy, you don't have to worry about travel adaptors and batteries issues. If you are bringing your rechargable toy, grab one with a travel lock, so it will not start buzzing in your luggage. The last thing you need is your vibrator going off in the airport
Do remember that airport staff do see sex toys in luggages all the time, so if they do happen to stumble across yours, do not be embarrassed. It's not their first time, and definately not their last. The last thing you want to do is to look suspicious or anxious, and if they do happen to see your kinky vibrator, do own it. Tell the officers yes i'm taking a vibrator on a holiday and no one should be ashamed of taking a little extra on your perfect vacation. And lastly, if you are particularly attached to a sex toy, do leave it at home. You do not want to risk losing it. It's always a wise decision to bring your second favourite sex toy on a vacation as sex toys are very personal items and it's not easily replaced.
