Does Size Matter to the TSA?

1

by thepleasurechest

When travelling with sex toys in your carry-on bag, does size matter? After reading this piece in NY Mag, we’re still not sure. They quote a New York Post article which says:

“The TSA acknowledges that there’s nothing illegal about traveling with the devices. Vibrators and dildos are OK in carry-ons, as long as they’re under 7 inches long, TSA rules say.”

But when NY Mag contacted the TSA for clarification, the spokesperson said there was no 7″ rule. So which is it? We’ve had our own frustrations trying to get answers from the TSA (We’re still waiting). The author suggests packing toys that feature a travel lock, so they don’t activate in your bag and trigger a bomb scare. And we know for a fact that the Njoy Eleven is considered a no-no.

Until we get straight answers, we’re going to assume that there’s always a risk of public embarrassment when traveling with sex toys. Luckily, some folks are into that sort of thing.

    I have travelled many times with dildos in my carry on bag. They show up on the scan, so you always get some smirks from the TSA people, but for most dildos (even the Outlaw- which comes in at about 10 inches) I don’t have to open my bag. I have been asked to open the bag when the dildo was either very thick or has some kind of different design (large Squarepeg dildos will need to be looked at). When they open the bag, they generally know it is a dildo but just need to confirm. They won’t take it out the bag and aren’t looking to embarrass you. But, if you want to avoid any scrutiny or knowing looks, it’s best to just check it.
