Taking Sex Toys Abroad

Taking Sex Toys Through Airport Security

When it comes to taking sex toys abroad, not all countries are as embracing as the UK, so it’s super important that you research the country you are travelling to.

Countries such as India, Indonesia, Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates all have strict restrictions on sex toys. Some countries even go as far as to classify them alongside items such as firearms, weapons and explosives. And whilst it’s true, sex toys can create eruptive results, they are not the disruptive dangerous type.

If you want to avoid having your sexy essentials confiscated, or worst (and yes we are talking imprisonment), take the time to understand where your holiday destination stands on the import of adult toys. Checking the customs or government websites only takes a moment but can save a whole heap of trouble.


Taking Sex Toys Through Airport Security

Let’s be realistic, there’s not a lot that airport security staff haven’t seen, meaning most wouldn’t bat an eyelid at the sight of a dildo, vibrator or cock ring. But not all of us may be comfortable with having the contents of our bedside drawer paraded in front of others.

Here are a few tips to prevent any potential embarrassment.

Vibrating Sex Toys

If you are planning on taking vibrating toys then pack them in the hold luggage. Remove batteries to prevent them springing into life of their own accord. Ensure all vibrating toys are turned off. If they have a travel lock, make sure it is on. For rechargeable sex toys, let them run out of charge before packing it. And for battery powered devices, remove the batteries.

For cabin or hand luggage, hide toys in plain sight. Pop them in a clear bag just in case they are checked during security. Whilst electrical items are generally ok, airport security staff may ask you to turn them on to demonstrate they function so these will need to be charged. Batteries are usually required to be in a separate clear bag.

Secret Sex Toys

Consider secret sex toys that are less conspicuous. There are plenty of small vibrators that resemble lipsticks. These can be placed in a make up bag or wash bag and are less likely to be given closer inspection. Caution, don’t take toys that could be mistaken as anything potentially dangerous such as a gun or a hammer (yes these toys exist).

Think Small

Avoid taking larger toys. Whilst sex toys themselves are perfectly fine in a lot of countries, if a security official thinks you could use that toy as a weapon, it will attract attention and could be confiscated.

Avoid Bondage Toys

Whips, ropes, handcuffs and floggers could all be seen as weapons or self-defence items and therefore are probably best left at home. But that doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy a little bondage on your holidays. You just have to think out of the box. Consider taking ties or silk scarves. They make excellent restraints for both wrists and ankles!

Chill Out

Airport staff are trained to pick up on those travellers who are acting suspiciously. It makes sense that if you seem nervous they could single you out. So stop worrying about the vibrator in your make up bag, or the clit sucking rose in your handbag. Even if it is discovered, you won’t be the first person to bring a sex toy onboard and you certainly won’t be the last. Providing there are no restrictions on sex toys, you are not breaking any rules, so keep calm and focus on the fun your naughty treat will bring you once you arrive safely at your destination.


What to Do if You Are Stopped for Carrying Sex Toys

The best advice is to own it.

  • Be confident.
  • Be honest.
  • Stand proud.

Trying to make up a story or excuse will only cause suspicion and could lead to further unwanted probing.
