When putting together your packing list ahead of a holiday you always pack your clothes, sun cream and a towel, but many of us want to pack something extra fun.

Your vibrator or sex toy might be for you to relax with while away or for a night in with your partner, but many Brits are worried about taking them abroad.

After all, in some countries sex toys are illegal.

And, you may also be worried about airport security spotting your gadgets.

Despite these worries, with the world of travel reopening, many of us are now planning for our long overdue trip abroad but are unwilling to leave our favourite sex toys behind!

It is however important to remember that if your chosen travel companion is of the vibrating variety, there are some things that you will need to consider.

WeVibe has put together a guide to taking your sex toys on holiday. Check out their advice below…

Research your country

While airport security staff in the UK won't bat an eyelid at the sight of your beloved toy, not every country is okay with you bringing the contents of your bedside drawer on holiday.

Some countries like India, the United Arab Emirates and the Maldives have restrictions on sex toys and even classify them along the same lines as firearms, explosives and weapons under the category of illegal pornographic material.

If you want to avoid having your treasured toy confiscated, or at worst, find yourself behind bars, find out where your holiday destination stands when it comes to the import of sex toys.

Size matters

Another option is downsizing your toys (because size does matter here). As they say, good things come in small packages.

Again, you will need to check the luggage restrictions for your country as if your vibrator exceeds this, it could be confiscated.

Current UK luggage restrictions state that tools in carry-on baggage must be under 6cm so it is advised you pack a more compact device as your travel companion.

The Tango X is a small, discreet and powerful bullet vibrator for intense external stimulation and is the mere size of a lipstick.

The Touch X on the other hand is a versatile multi-purpose vibrator which can be used for full-body massages or clitoral stimulation.

Its sculpted shape which is similar to that of a face massager also means that it won’t be as embarrassing if it does get pulled out of your bag!

Sex toys aren’t not just for the ladies and the discreet Arcwave VOY is the ultimate hand enhancer for men which uses patented CleanTech silicone to create a unique ultra-soft sensation that the human hand is not able to provide.

Silence is golden

To avoid any random sounds, pulses or vibrations coming from the suitcase in your overhead compartment or as you casually walk past security, it’s important to look for toys with travel settings.

The slim and ergonomic We-Vibe Melt comes with a travel lock feature which ensures that it won’t switch on by itself once activated.

If your toy is battery powered, you should remove the batteries before travel to avoid them going off in the X-ray machine.

Alternatively, the ever-popular and eco-friendly We-Vibe Chorus is rechargeable with up to 90 minutes of play on a single charge.

Or, if you’re really looking to hit the high notes while you’re away, the LIBERTY by Lily Allen comes equipped with a travel cover that keeps your Liberty hygienically closed as well as prevent it from accidentally switching on!

Lube is your friend

A recent study revealed that 37% of people think lube is their best ally in the bedroom and that 87% of people found they are more likely to orgasm when using it.

Luckily, although fitting all your toiletries into a transparent airport bag can prove stressful, Lovehoney lube conveniently comes in 3.4 oz bottles (100mL), which is approved for carry-ons!

Johanna Rief, Head of Sexual Empowerment at We-Vibe says: “We know how attached people get to their sex toys, so when it comes to heading off on holidays, it can be difficult to think about a week or even a fortnight away from them. However, it is important that people are informed before they travel in order to prevent any issues at the point of entry to the destination country.

"There are a number of different options when thinking about what sex toys is best suited to take with you but whether you’re flying solo or travelling with a partner, bringing sex toys on your holidays can make a good holiday great!”
