Topic Traveling with "Toys"
Posted 05 Aug 2015 06:16

I randomly looked this up today... there are lots of tips, youtube seminars etc on how to fly with sex toys. I learned some interesting things - namely that it's best to travel with toys less than 7inches and that in some countries, sex toys are illegal.

Jill Filipovic was on an international flight from Newark, NJ to Dublin, Ireland, and upon arrival found in her checked bag a printed advisory from the TSA stating that her bag had been opened and inspected by the TSA. In the margin of the note, a TSA screener added an extra message saying "Get your freak on girl."

Tips for traveling with sex toys

There are a number of common sense things that you can do to protect your sex toys and to limit the likelihood that the TSA will cause you any embarrassment or excessive delays:

1. Tell the truth: If a TSA screener asks you what is in your baggage just say what it is.

2. Remove batteries: This suggestion applies to any battery-powered item in your baggage that won't be used in flight.

3. Put your items in separate clear plastic bags: Keeping items in Ziploc type bags keeps them from being contaminated by handling by TSA screeners.

4. Don't pack banned items: Most sharp items, and liquid filled or gel filled items are typically banned from carry on baggage, but can be packed in checked luggage.

Size does matter. Remember that the TSA restricts hand tools longer than 7 inches in length in carry-on baggage, so if you a have a longer toy, it might fall into the category of “baton-like” or “club-like” items that have to be checked. TSA sometimes confiscates items from checked luggage when they cannot tell what they are, so if you think your toy is ambiguous, consider attaching a note.

Definitely okay to carry-on

- Vibrators, dildos, toys shorter than 7 inches
- Lubes/potions in 3 oz or less containers
- Handcuffs
- Strap-on harnesses or other gear made of leather, fabric, buckles
- Rope

Gray Areas: might be a good idea to check it

- Toys longer than 7 inches, especially ones made of hard or heavy materials
- Whips: the TSA specifies that “riding whips” and “riding crops” are okay to carry-on, but “whips” and “bullwhips” are martial arts/self-defense equipment that must be checked.
- Paddles: the TSA specifies that ping-pong paddles are okay to carry-on, so paddles of about that size should be, too.
- E-stim: TENS units for pain treatment are okay to carry-on, so our guess is that e-stim units will be treated the same way.

Must check it:

- Objects with sharp edges or points.
- Objects that are similar in size/shape/weight to clubs, bats, or batons.

Remember, finally, that if you’re headed out of the United States, it’s a good idea to do some research on the laws and culture of the particular country where you are traveling, as some countries have more restrictive laws about sex toys. (A partial list of countries where sex toys are illegal: India, Indonesia, Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Thailand, United Arab Emirates) . Also remember to keep the US embassy’s phone number on your at all times, just in case.

Topic Traveling with "Toys"
Posted 04 Aug 2015 05:10

I traveled with several of mine in a carry-on once when going to visit someone. I just kept them in their regular discreet pouches (that they came with) and then put them into a larger sleeper bag from one of my purses. I tucked the the whole thing between my clothes as if it was just another item I was packing.

I also decanted some toy cleaner into a mini perfume bottle and put it into my clear plastic bag that I would show for allotted quantity of liquids.

I didn't have any issues, however my flight was domestic and it was on a smaller airline used to hop cities.

If they do search your bag, just own it and shrug it off. They see all kinds of things. I'm sure they'll understand by the shape of the objects through the scanner that it might be 'toys' and if they go through your bag, I'm sure they'll be discreet as well and won't be pulling stuff out and waving it around the airport.

On last nights segment the final part was in florescent's. These guys and gals are terrrific.

The other night on Ink Master, they used UV body paint on people to make the human form disappear. It was also very cool.

I'm just going to imagine it was finger paints. For reasons I will not disclose.

I actually want to try glow-in-the-dark paint sometime.

It looks like fun.

Of course, I've had my face painted on many occasions, but so have most girls. Organic-style probably doesn't count.

Topic Would you let your hubby or bf have sex with another girl if he demands or asks?
Posted 31 Jul 2015 07:27

Maybe. I have before. Depends on the situation.

The 'demand' bit would be a hard no, though.

Posted 31 Jul 2015 07:15

Not really, unless it naturally evolves that way (ie. there's something to talk about). I'm not into filler 'small talk' or chatting about feelings/relationships though - that would be a turn-off.

I've been professionally painted once for an event (as a tiger). It was fun, although crazy messy during paint-removal.

Topic Is there another story category you'd like to have on Lush?
Posted 30 Jul 2015 14:29

I like revenge... I've written revenge on more than one occasion. :)

I would say no to 'historical' - only because I think it's a super niche category.

The collab one might be an interesting idea but honestly - I wonder how many casual surfers would click on that category or care much because it doesn't really tell them anything about the actual content. You can actually end up with fewer views depending on the category you choose - going too obscure doesn't always work favourably.

Topic what kind of body turns you on!
Posted 30 Jul 2015 14:18

I like fit and athletic with some muscle definition, abs, a nice chest. Nothing too juiced though - i'm not really into the oversized traps and excessive bulk.

Topic Going topless in Canada it's Legal, but would you?
Posted 30 Jul 2015 11:30

Thanks for commenting on my forum topic, what is interesting to me is the effort of removing the stigma of going topless, if man can do it, women should have equal rights. Well that's the premise, is it valid change for the better, or a moral misstep?

It's definitely not a moral misstep. Everyone should have the right. Whether someone wants to take advantage of it is up to personal choice, but it's only fair to have equal options available.

Topic Going topless in Canada it's Legal, but would you?
Posted 30 Jul 2015 06:21

I had a friend who did it sometimes to prove a point back when we were in university, but it's far from the norm. I'm definitely not comfortable going topless walking around in the city or in 'non-topless' environments (ie. not the beach). Quite honestly, although it's technically legal, I don't ever see people doing it outside of things like the Pride Parade, or occasionally some will go body-painted at sporting events or outdoor concerts. I have been bodypainted before in public (for a charity event), but for me - I still have to feel like the event/venue is 'appropriate'.

Topic Sex goo , after the deed clean up ?
Posted 18 Jul 2015 07:37

I agree with Dancing Doll, but I would guess some semen still remains after a wipe.

It's very minimal if you don't wait too long after sex to use the bathroom (you don't have to sprint there, but it's less effective if you're laying around for an hour before going). And you do have to kind of 'push out' with your kegels - hard to explain, but girls know what I'm talking about. Simple wiping still results in a lingering drip. Depends on what a girl prefers though.

Re your other Q - I don't mind it going on my body. It's super easy to clean up or to just go for a slippery/messy longer session if it's not a quickie or where post-shower isn't available. Tongues work well too.

Topic Sex goo , after the deed clean up ?
Posted 17 Jul 2015 05:19

The easiest thing to do if you don't want leaks or wet sheets (or panties) is to go to the bathroom and pee and put a bit of strain into it or bear down slightly. If you go right after sex, it will flush most of it out (ie. you actually see it in the bowl) and using the bathroom right after sex is also good health practice because it helps prevent UTIs. The same system applies for post-anal as well.

As 'sexy' as leaking all day sounds, it's just not practical for most people - especially after morning or mid-day sex. If you're going for another round or two or having a lazy day/night, a simple wipe is fine or just leave it as-is and go with it. But yeah, if you want to be mess-free, use the bathroom reasonably soon afterward and use your kegels to give a little push.

Posted 10 Jul 2015 14:38

I think athletic compression shorts (mid-thigh to just above the knee) are hot on a guy - not really into the whole 'spandex pants' or tights look on a dude though, unless it's for some kind of athletic purpose.

It's a different story for girls though. :)

Topic What about your own stories?
Posted 10 Jul 2015 07:56

I definitely do while in the process of writing a story because the concept is floating around in my head and the content still feels raw and kinky. Once I'm finished writing a story, however, I don't go back to it. It's not because the sex acts depicted aren't exciting to me anymore - it's more that once I'm finished with the editing process, my brain is in hyper-critical mode and if I start re-reading things - even for pleasure - all I'm going to see are flaws and things I should have changed or written differently. It kind of kills the mood.
