I can't believe this topic hasn't been discussed sometime in the past, but after searching the archives, I've come up empty, so here goes: Any tips for traveling with toys in carry-on bags? I'm off to Canada soon with a friend and would like to bring along an assortment of toys for our enjoyment. But I'm fearful that an inquisitive baggage screener will open my suitcase and pull out my Jeff Stryker dildo and wave it around, embarrassing me in front of various grandmas and kids waiting in line. Has this happened to anyone? I could just check the bag, of course, saving me any embarrassment and providing a little thrill for those "behind closed doors" baggage screeners. Or I could just buy some toys there and leave them behind when done. But I'm curious to know how others have handled this in the past. Thanks!

It has definitely been discussed before, but may have been lost in one of the site's "blond" hardware moments.

 

I think the best suggestion I remember was to box up the toys and mail them to yourself marked "HOLD FOR ARRIVAL". At the end of the trip, mail them back home.

 

I do this sort of thing all the time when a trip will take me through both a warm destination and a cold destination. I'll ship the parka and long pants to the cold destination so they're waiting when I arrive but I don't have to haul them around.

 

Next best is checked baggage. Of course, a lot of us will do almost anything (see "shipping", above ;-)) to avoid checking bags.

 

If you HAVE to have them in carry-on, just be ready with your nicest smile and hope you at least get the cute one. ;-) Just remember that those guys have seen it all before.

Correctomundo Deej. Good suggestions~

 

When brining along toys, i've gotten the sly smiles that come from a TSA employee before. It used to bother me in the beginning, but now i'm pretty okay with just checking them in my luggage. I suppose it's just a hazard of the trade :)

 

Just let all your toy-fear subside when thinking about what you're going to DO with them later on. *wink*

A friend of mine travels with toys all the time. He has gone to every continent carrying a respectable collection of toys...

Canada has never been judgamental with that... but try to get into the states, and there are always umcomfortable questions.

What he does is very simple.

He makes sure to put his toys in a transparent plastic bag, Beside another transparent plastic bag with lube bottles and condoms... His personal trick is that both bags are VERY messy with clean lube. Seen from the outside, you can never tell whether the lube is the by product of a past encounter, or if it is caused by a leak in the bottle... n(But if that is the case, where would the lube on the dildo come from?)

He claims that he has never been searched. Sure enough, he has receive very dirty (or friendly) looks, but nobody has had the nerve enough to lift the bags out of the suitcase. All he gets is a hurried "Thanks, Sir, please close your bag."

 

Wouldnt you hate it being one of those guys who have to search people?

I know of one BDSM escort that made a female airport bag screener blush and then some....:)

 

 

As for myself I am planning a NYC visit and am told that there are still random bag checks in the subway system that began after the London bombings. I can almost guarantee I’ll be one of the lucky ones… ironically the thing I am worried about the most is the electrical TENS unit which kind of looks like a cross between a garage door remote control and bomb detonator!!

That's no problem at all...

 

If they don't know what you mean when you explain what it is and how it works... if they are still looking at you with seethed suspicion in their jaded eyes... then politely ask:

 

"Sir, would you mind me connecting it to your soft assring and urethra so I can show you how it works?"

 

Two or few more electric shocks into his nether regions and you might have a friend for life. }(

 

And if still he doesnt believe it, then make sure to have the instruction manual with you, with pictures and all... and make sure that you have at least a few reliable internet sites that they can refer to if they are still suspicious.

 

Remember that it is your work to provide with enough information so they can stop worrying about you.

 

On another subject...

 

When are you visiting Vancouver? :o I have never tried those gadgets in myself, and I am thinking that it is about time to begin, otherwise I am going to be too old to enjoy it.

 

Happy shocks! }(

Juan… It's a deal... If I’m ever in Vancouver I would be only too happy to "connect" so as to "connect" you… to the TENS unit that is…

 

Regarding my stay in NYC… I’m practicing walking with a limp… have all the symptoms of sciatica memorized… as well as a list of all the therapeutic and palliative effects of the TENS unit… so I think I’ll be able to slip through with out too much of a problem!!

 

Now as far as the "other" toys are concerned I'm not so sure....

I learned this lesson the embarresing way. A few years back the bf and I headed out to Chicago for IML. Of course going to such an event we brought our finest in leather wear and such. Getting to Chicago was a breeze (security wise) no problems but on the way back going through security at O'hare was another story. My carry on was flaged and searched. The TSA woman who opened my bag smiled in amusement. In my bag was my floger. She promptly pulled it out (in full view) like a child finding what she wanted for Christmas. She didn't make any rude comments but she did say that my floger was much nicer then hers. Moral of the story check the toys in or as mail them to yourself.

 

Hugs,

Greg

Yeswell, don't feel naive!

 

TENS stands for Trans Epidermal Nerve Stimulation. In the real world it is used by chiropractors, physicians and even dentists mainly for its palliative effect to alleviate pain associated with certain painful conditions such as sciatica, TMJ dysfunction, etc. The units range in size from large “in office” versions to small portable units powered by a nine volt battery for patients to use at home. Electrodes similar to those used for an EKG are used to deliver the “juice” to the body part in question. Depending on the setting the effect can range from delightful pleasure to well…

 

In the S&M world it is the nine volt version that is most often used with most guys using “sticky pad electrodes” attached to their nipples and cock for a shocking effect… it is amazing how a mere nine volts can charge you up especially when attached to the “more sensitive” body parts. There are also all sorts of attachments specifically designed for attachment to the cock, nipples, and up the butt… many BDSM specialists have these toys as part of their armamentarium for use with advanced players.

 

For a Merry Christmas have Santa purchase the unit and electrodes at a chiropractic supply house…do a Google search for the best price… for the special attachments check out electrical toys at:

A friend who was flying from NYC to the West Coast to appear in a porn film brought along an industrial size container of lube. The airport screener insisted on him opening it up so they could determine what it was. The screener dipped in his finger and was sticky the rest of the day....:)
