The Best Travel-Friendly Vibrators and Lubes
Whether sex toys are the first things you pack or the last items you squeeze in, there’s a short checklist for choosing the perfect vibrator for travel: You do not want to deal with extra batteries, so rechargeable ones only. To avoid the possibility of the vibrator turning on and buzzing while it’s stowed away on the flight, you’ll want one that has a travel lock or travel pause feature. And if you’re like us, you’ll want it to be on the smaller size to maximize luggage space.
A note on batteries: Rechargeable batteries are TSA-approved for travel—most consumer electronic devices that require batteries are permitted for carry-on and checked luggage, including dry-cell, lithium-metal, and lithium-ion batteries. You may want to pack vibrators with lithium-metal or lithium-ion batteries in your carry-on, which is recommended by the FAA. If you’re packing them in your checked luggage, just ensure that they’re in travel mode—completely powered off and locked to prevent them from being accidentally powered on during the journey.
