Adult Toys and Air Travel - Considering the Security Issues

Male adult toys are arguably more popular now than ever; while it's still not considered polite for a guy to drop references to his male organ ring into polite conversation, people are more aware of the role that adult toys can play in a man's sensual life. They often contribute to improved male organ health by creating new paths to pleasure for a guy. Still, there are situations in which a man would prefer to keep his preference for sensual playthings private – such as when passing through airport security before boarding a flight.

With that in mind, here are a few things to remember when traveling with sensual gadgets, whether on one’s person or packed away in the luggage.

If it's metal, it will unsettle.

Although plastic and silicon seem to be everywhere in the adult toy world, there are still plenty of metal-based items that many men enjoy; this is especially true in the world of male organ rings. While many men enjoy the practice of wearing a male organ ring during the day, it really is best to take it off when flying. For the easily embarrassed man, what could be more mortifying than stepping through a scanner and having it start blaring because it picked up on the metal male organ ring he is sporting? The humiliation is only going to increase when asked if he forgot to remove his watch or anything else made of metal and will peak when a handheld metal detector is passed over his body and beeps when it is held at crotch level.

Placing the metal male organ ring in a carry-on is a better idea, but there is still a likelihood that it will register with the scanner and may be pulled out by inspectors who need to make sure it's nothing dangerous. A better option is probably to check luggage instead. The best options, to avoid embarrassment at least, are to leave it at home or to buy a non-metallic ring for travel purposes.

Vibrating toys may shake things up – a bit too much.

Metal vibrating toys are much more the exception than the rule (although they are not unheard of); synthetic-based materials that are firm yet have a degree of softness are much more the norm nowadays. However, the electronics that allow the toy to operate are a potential problem with security.

This is also true of the butt plugs that feature a vibrating option. As with male organ rings, some men enjoy wearing these butt plugs throughout the day, sometimes with the vibrating option engaged and other times with it off. In either case, it can create an embarrassing situation similar to wearing a male organ ring through security.

Although not in the vibrating family, male organ pumps that are powered by a motor can also be a potential reason for carry-ons to be inspected.

Cuffs can catch one up.

Many men enjoy harmless play that can encompass many items – including metal cuffs, nipple clamps and studded dog collars. All of these are likely to be made at least in part of metal, so the chance for them to set off an alarm is high. Cuffs especially can be problematic; while they are an acknowledged part of sensual play for many people, airport security guards may be more inclined to believe they could be used to immobilize a pilot or other airplane official.

Packing away adult toys is the best option for flight travel, not just for security purposes but because wearing some of them while in the physically restricted space in an airplane may eventually lead to a sore male organ. Whatever the cause of a sore male organ, using a top notch male organ vitamin cream (health professionals recommend Man 1 Man Oil) can help provide relief. Although the cream should definitely include the hydrating power of vitamin E, the best ones also include vitamins A (to fight male organ odor) and C (renowned for important collagen production). Employing one with acetyl L carnitine will also help to maintain all-important male organ sensitivity, which some sensual play can impair.
