I was planning to bring my vibrator to Las Vegas with me, until I considered the possibility of having to turn it on and show the inspectors how it works before I could clear security. Yes, all electronics, including sex toys, are targets in the world of the Canadian CATSA inspectors. I really should just say, “F*%K it, and pack Bella anyway, but I’m too chicken and decide to go with plan B – buy a new toy in Vegas.
As for you, there are a few options for traveling with sex toys, and any other bedroom-related goodies you might want to have with you.
The good thing about packing your items in your checked baggage is that it alleviates any embarrassing situations at the security gate. The not-so-good thing is that when you check your bags, you lose control of the contents for a period of time. Your bags are still screened, and if a mysterious looking item is seen, your bag is opened for inspection. If you’re not there to give the security personnel an explanation of the item, or they just decide it shouldn’t make the trip, they do have the right to confiscate it.
Tip: If you pack your lubricants and lotions in your checked bags, there is no size limit. Be sure to drop the containers in zip-lock type bags! The section of the airplane that holds your checked baggage is not pressurized, and the changes in altitude can cause your lube containers to expand and contract. Keeping them inside a leak-proof bag will eliminate the chance of the liquid or gel spilling on to your clothing.
If you must pack your toys in your carry-on bag, here are a few pointers:
Vibrators: Pack smaller, more compact toys. Smaller items usually get less attention. Instead of packing your Hitachi Magic Wand, you might look into smaller vibes that pack a punch, like the Jimmyjane Form 3, We-Vibe 3 or the Fun Factory’s Delight Vibrator – all are conveniently rechargeable.
Tip: Whether you take your toys in your carry-on bag or in your checked luggage, always remove the batteries before packing! Traveling with sex toys on a flight can make items shift in your luggage. This could accidentally turn your toys to “on” position and wear out your batteries in flight. Just remove them and place them in a bag until you’re ready to use the toys. Or get some packs of fresh batteries and drop them in your bag before you go.
Lubes and Lotions: The CATSA guidelines for packing liquids or gels in your carry on currently state that the maximum limit is 100ml. With this rule in mind, just pack smaller containers of your favorite lube or potion in your carry-on bag. For personal lubricants, try Hathor Aphrosdia Pure Lubricant or Intimate Organics Defense Anti Bacterial or Soothe Anal Lubricant. A small amount of any of these lubes goes a long way!
If giving or receiving a sensuous massage is on your horizon, consider Intimate Organics Chai Vanilla Massage Oil.
