5 Discreet Adult Toys That Won’t Embarrass You In The TSA Line
By Danielle Dorsey
It’s every traveler’s worst nightmare. You’re attempting to get through airport security when your carry-on is unexpectedly flagged for search. You’re forced to stand by with a neutral expression while the TSA agent painstakingly examines every item, revealing all of your intimate secrets for the entire airport to see.
For those of you who are looking to liven up your getaway, there’s nothing wrong with packing toys but you probably won’t want them drawing the attention of TSA. Here are our top picks for discreet toys that travel well:
Maude is a woman-owned brand that favors a simple, inclusive approach. With high-quality condoms, lubricants, massage oil, and a sleek personal massager, they’ve got your sex essentials covered.
Dame Products is a women-led company that is on a mission to close the “pleasure gap,” which refers to a study where 91 percent of cis-gendered men said they orgasm during every sexual encounter, while only 39 percent of cis-gendered women could say the same. They’ve already made history by launching Kickstarter’s first sex toy campaign and since 2015 have expanded their product offerings to include sleek and accessible vibrating designs.
Satisfyer has an option for every budget and preference. Their luxury line uses real leather and precious metals to deliver an unforgettable experience, while the more reasonably priced Satisfyer Pro 2 uses air pulse technology to take you beyond cloud 9. Browse the Satisfyer for men and Satisfyer for couple lines to see what else the brand offers.
Unbound is a woman-owned sex toy retailer that acts as a one-stop shop for sexual education and empowerment resources. Their magazine covers topics like sex worker rights and offers advice for navigating a changing sex toy industry. Their sex toy options are discreet and innovative, including an external vibrator shaped like a spaceship and a flexible design that’s ready to bend to your needs.
Chakrubs is a small, woman-owned business that promises to make pleasure an enlightening experience. They offer pleasure tools crafted from 100% natural crystal that double as external massagers. Chakrubs encourage self-pleasure as a tool for increased knowledge and acceptance of one’s unique desires. Customers can select from an abundance of stones that offer a range of metaphysical healing properties. While this option might add a couple of pounds to your luggage, Chakrubs’ gorgeous exterior and wand-like design make them great travel companions.
