WASHINGTON, D.C.—In addition to knowing that you can access your MP3 player or smart phone on a long flight, you can rest assured that your trusty Rabbit Habit or silk wrist sashes can stay within reach on those cross-country treks.
Earlier this week, the Transportation Security Administration announced that vibrators are safe to pack in carry-on bags when flying. Also safe are whips, chains, leashes, restraints and manacles.
An article on AOL’s travel site Gadling.com notes, however, that not everyone should pack their goodies in their overnight bag.
“Are you a nervous traveler already?” the article reads. “Prone to looking shifty in line? Yep, you're going to get flagged. And when you're flagged, you're inspected.”
The TSA also reminds travelers that any item that is “club-like” or objects that are “anatomically correct cylinders of roughly a foot or so in length” are still prohibited. In other words, size matters: Keep it under 7 inches and you should be fine.
There are some other tips, too: Remove the batteries to prevent the vibrator from turning on unexpectedly, make sure you are not traveling to a foreign country that restricts or prohibits sex toys, and make sure any lube is in a container that holds 3 ounces or less.
We know we feel better knowing we can calm our flying jitters with a toy that does its own jittering.
