Bring TSA-Friendly Bottles for Lube
If you’re flying, remember that liquid restrictions for carry-ons also apply to lube. Either buy small TSA-friendly sized bottles of lube, or transfer your fave product into 3.4 oz. (or less) plastic bottles.
Be Mindful of Sex Toy Size
When it comes to restrictions on items for air travel, TSA states that “tools” with a length of 7 inches (about 17.5 cm) are suitable for carry-on luggage. So, your standard issue rabbit vibe is probably OK, but that 11” big glass dildo (literally) won’t fly.
Create a Sensual Vacation Kit
Morse suggests packing an array of sensual goodies, including massage oil candles, your favorite music, sex toys, lubricant, bath salts and your favorite treats (those special candies you’ve been saving for a rainy day are perfect for your summer getaway).
“Have the concierge deliver flowers before you arrive,” she says. “Make sure the room has a calming, relaxing and, of course, sexy atmosphere. When your senses are ignited, you can’t help but get in the mood.”
Be Ready to Explain What's In Your Bag
When an airport security agent asks you what’s in your bag or to explain a suspect item that pops up on the X-Ray display, tell it to them straight: “I have a sex toy.” It may help avoid further questioning and rifling through your bag. Don’t worry about being embarrassed; these people handle thousands of articles every day.
You're On Vacation - Try Something Different!
“If you’re traveling with a partner, vacations are a great chance for you to try out some role play,” Morse said. “Set a time to meet at the hotel bar as ‘strangers,’ where you can choose to still be yourself, or come up with a sexy alias,” she said. “Commit to the plan, work through the giggles (don’t worry, it’ll happen), and get ready for a hot ‘one-night-stand’ with your partner.”
Role play, when done correctly, is sooo hot. It’s kinda like a DIY IRL porno. GO HAVE FUN.
