How to Fly with Bondage Toys and Other BDSM Pieces

How to Fly with Bondage Toys and  Other BDSM Pieces

Planning a raunchy getaway with your partner. Perhaps you're getting in on the action of a kink festival and fancy bringing some gear of your own! Unfortunately this isn’t always as straightforward as you’d like and can instead leave you tied up at the airport. This article aims to warn you about any potential problems and hopefully make the entire process a lot smoother.

Travelling with various types of sex toys can sometimes be difficult. If you're planning on taking your bondage pieces abroad, keeping up to date with regulations and procedures can rectify any concerns. Considering that the purpose of certain BDSM toys is to inflict pain, such as paddles spankers and whips. Although their use is pleasurable, in the context of an airport they are perceived differently. Remember that many BDSM toys historical usage was as a weapon! Therefore a positive first step is acknowledging that it's understandable that your luggage contents may require explanation by airport security, public safety!

This year in Berlin an airport terminal was shutdown due to a potential bomb threat. The "bomb" in question was discovered to be an Ann Summers Vibrator. Leaving civilians relieved and one man extremely red faced!

Travelling with BDSM Toys

Here's a few tips that'll make bringing along your favourite toys as stress free as possible.

Assume your bag will be checked!

Be prepared for your carry on or check in bag to be inspected. You'd prefer airport security to not be going through some pretty personal gear and they probably don’t want to either. Preparation to make everyone's lives easier is recommended. This involves removing the batteries from everything that vibrates and pack them separately. If your BDSM toy is rechargeable, try to deplete the charge before packing. Finally if your toy has the luxury of having a travel mode, ensure it's activated. Group similar items when packing. Pack all of your bondage accessories together like bondage rope and wrist restraints. Therefore in the event that airport security require an explanation you can clarify things in groups. Whilst explaining, if you can motion that certain items are all meant for similar purposes, it makes the entire process less stressful and more time efficient. Pack all sensitive items or items that you'd expect to come under suspicion in clear plastic packaging. This lessens the chance of contamination if things are handled by security and will also will help in keeping items discreet.

Rules and Regulations

Please don't limit your knowledge of regulations to gossip or advice from friends. Whether your attending the Seattle Erotics Arts Festival, the Sexpo in Australia or Kutemajrvi Sex Festival in Finland. It's essential to familiarise yourself with the specific regulations of your kinky destination. Generally finding the regulations associated with your destination are only a google search away, potentially followed by a bit of heavy reading. But the investment is worth it when considering your getaway might be ruined. Here are a few links of common travel destinations

The above websites explain regulations around certain items or state whether something is completely banned. Some have a search tool which is really helpful when concerned about one or a few items in particular.

The other thing to be mentally ready for, is to lose some things. This goes for all travellers, baggage errors can happen. If any bondage rope for example falls out of a zipper or is confiscated by airport security, remember it's replaceable. Keep on keeping on and don't let it ruin your trip!

Attire and Behaviour

This next bit is going to sound like common sense. However many of these scenarios have apparently happened before, and as you can imagine it didn’t go down well. Remember that you're representing the BDSM community and in an effort to not add to misconceptions associated with the community, it's best to play it cool. Therefore, the airport is not the place to have your submissive walking or crawling around on a leash. Strolling around in your favourite fetish gear is advised against as well. Dressing provocatively can even keep you under suspicion as a sex worker. This sort of association isn't going to help you cross some borders. If you have a rule to do with your submissive that limits their speech, this rule should be temporarily suspended. We know you're excited, but the idea is to not draw any unwanted attention. Consider that you don't want any permanent notes on your travelling records as well. Different countries are less accepting of pornography, even if it's non penetrative. It's recommended to just not pack any physical pornography, i.e magazines etc. Instead just wait till you reach your destination and find visual aids online.

Let your BDSM desires take flight!
