Whether you're heading off on a brief business trip, planning a romantic getaway or backpacking round the world, you don't want to leave your potential for pleasure at home. While there may not be room in your carry-on luggage for your favourite rabbit vibrator, there are several more discreet options which are perfect for travelling, so you can have all kinds of pleasure wherever you are, and not just of the sightseeing kind! Here are our top six toy tips for while you're on the road.
A most unassuming travel companion, the Tenga range features a variety of perfectly discreet, non-traditional shapes. Our fave is the avocado-like Midori but they each have their own personal charm. With its whisper-quiet motor and soft, velvet texture Tenga has all the attributes for a perfect getaway.
This fun couple's vibe is a great addition to your holiday suitcase. We love how playful you can get with the remote control settings and the new additional closed ring attachment goes down well with the guys! The fact that it's fully waterproof means you can enjoy it in the shower or tub too, so get adventurous.
The strong, silent motor of the Matryoshka makes it a perfect trip buddy, while the handy travel lock means you won't have any explaining to do at airport security either. We like its unusual shape and the five different intensity levels make it a sophisticated pleasure-giver.
This small, highly portable finger massager can be used solo or in a twosome, and is a great go-to pleasure massager. It's soft and slightly flexible, so can be put to innovative use on either partner and its strong, deep vibrations are surprisingly travel-friendly quiet.
Its 'lipstick' design camouflage will throw anyone off the scent, so you can enjoy this powerful, long-lasting vibe on any trip: solo or with your partner. We like the range of vibrating modes and the speed with which it recharges, always handy when you're away from home.
This fun, travel-sized version of the larger Gold Label duckie is only $19.95: a thoroughly affordable travel companion. Not sure its feather boa and real Swarovski crystal 'disguise' is the most stylish of outfits but it's certainly a little pocket rocket and fully waterproof for those aqua-based trips.
Plus don't forget...
The Sliquid lube cube makes for perfect travel-sized packets of lubricant, and of course are all fully organic.
For your couples weekend away, pack the Kama Sutra weekender kit and you've got your pleasure fully in a travel-sized bag!
Top tips for travelling with toys
Make them travel-safe.
Avoid those embarrassing moments at airport security and remove batteries or put your toy onto its travel setting before you pack. Better still, choose a rechargeable toy for your travels to avoid accidental in-bag buzzing.
Place your toys in cloth or clear plastic bags and stow between other items in your luggage so they are not loose. Checked baggage is the best place but bear in mind it may be removed if airport security staff do not know what it is. Liquid limits apply to lubes in carry-on luggage too, don't forget.
If you are asked to explain the unusual shape on the airport X-Ray monitor, be up front about what you're carrying and use frank, clinical terms. Relax, security personnel have seen it all before.
Do your research.
Believe it or not, your little travel companion may not be legal at your destination. Some countries such as Saudi Arabia and the UAE are not as accepting of love toys as Australia, so make sure you Google before you fly.
Whichever toy you choose to take with you, enjoy being away from everyday life and trying something new while on your travels. Travelling is inherently sexy, and we hope you find it pleasurable!
