Tips and Tricks: Traveling with Sex Toys

If you’re setting off on summer travels, you’re perhaps thinking of taking some of your trusty pleasure items with you. And as proud as we are of our beautiful range of stylish products, we appreciate that having to show them off to security personnel is less than ideal.

Vibrator Travel Tips

After years of traveling with our products both for business and pleasure, we here at LELO have learned how to breeze past check-in and on to our destination with no fuss. Check out some of our tips below.

Shut it Down and Lock it Up

While the pleasure toys of today tend to be rechargeable, we understand that many people still stand by their battery-operated buzzers. The thing about D-cell pleasure devices is that many don’t feature a control lock function – so take the batteries out before packing it in your carry-on bag. Massagers from LELO however are easily lockable, meaning that no errant button pressing will come between you and the boarding gate.

Bag It

In the event that your baggage does get searched, you don’t want a customs officer handling your intimate item, so pack your toys in clear plastic bags – they can see what’s inside and what’s more, it’s a hygienic storage option when you’re on-the-go.

Keep It Small

When it comes to restrictions on items for air travel, the US Travel Security Administration is a good yardstick for which rules will apply for luggage items. The TSA states that “tools” with a length of 7 inches (about 17½ centimeters) are suitable for carry-on luggage. This means that petite, discreet massagers such as SIRI™ 2, MIA™ 2 or ALIA are good to go – ELISE™ 2 and IRIS™ will have to wait for your next road trip.

Own Up

When an Airport security agents asks you what’s in your bag or has you explain an item on the x-ray display; tell it to them straight. This will save you being pulled aside for further questioning and perhaps also avoid them having to rummage through your bag. Embarrassment  is really a non factor here because these people handle thousands of articles every day; your sex toy won’t even qualify for break room gossip.

Know Before You Go

Believe it or not, sex toys aren’t accepted in every place on the globe. Some countries and regions have bans on your little buzzing buddy, like India, the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia — even some US States. If you’re so much as simply not sure if your destination allows sex toys, being absolutely sure is just a Google search away, and can save you a whole lot of trouble.

Traveling with your toys can be fuss-free, and when you reach your final destination, they can only enhance the loosening of inhibitions that comes with being in a new place, whether you’re traveling solo or with a partner.

    Thanks for your question! Unfortunately, sex toys are currently illegal in Dubai, so we advise you to leave it at home. Bringing banned items into any country is done at your own risk.

    Good luck!
