To help us understand what to look for in a travel-friendly sex toy, Carol Queen, PhD, a sexologist with pleasure-product company Good Vibrations has some tips. First, while toy preferences vary depending on what a specific person wants, when it comes to travel-friendly sex toys, the best practice is generally to steer clear of larger options in order to stay low-key. "Smaller sizes can be preferable, especially for those who want to stay discreet or are traveling light," Dr. Queen says.

Additionally, it helps to get a toy that has a travel lock. According to Dr. Queen, this extra security will help prevent your toy from suddenly buzzing away in your suitcase and potentially alerting airport staff. If your toys don't have this function, you could also remove any batteries to reduce the risk of a device turning on.
Lastly, when it comes taking care of your adult toys, make sure to have them stored in clear bags before you head to the airport. That way they're readily visible and TSA won't have to sift through your personal belongings to find them, should they need to, Dr. Queen says.
For those on the hunt for the most travel-friendly sex toys to take on vacation, check out our top picks below.
Best travel-friendly sex toys
Clitoral stimulation is really the name of the game with the Surge Silicone Massager. With just one button, you can increase the intensity of the vibrations for an accelerated trip to Pleasuretown. The vibe is also super-compact, allowing you to take it with you just about anywhere, so you can truly climax on-the-go. But most importantly, for purposes of travel, the Surge has a built-in travel lock to help keep it turned off when you want it to stay off.
Given its compact size, this vibrator really gives you your money’s worth in terms of strength. Its magic lies in its vibrating tip and ergonomic shape, which rests perfectly on the vulva. Additionally, the vibe has not one, not two, but 15 different vibration modes and six intensity levels for you and your partner to play around with. As a bonus, it comes with a micro-suede travel case for you to safely and discreetly stash away in your suitcase.
If there’s one thing we can say for sure about the Maude Vibe, it’s that it’s simple but powerful. Reviewers love it for its chic design and super-soft silicone material that feels luxe on the skin. It also has three speeds and can last up to 2.5 hours when fully charged. Plus, it comes with a handy little traveling pouch that you can use to store it with other essentials like lube and condoms.
The Womanizer Pro is truly a workhorse for clitoral stimulation. It has 12 intensity levels and can provide four hours of intense play. However, this device really stands out for its innovative construction and functionality. For example, it actually releases bursts of air vibrations that suck and massage.
Who knew that vibrators could look so gorgeous? That said, the Kyro Wand Massager has way more to offer than just its aesthetic. It has five vibration levels and six speeds and comes with two silicone attachments to use to target the clitoris and nipples. And, for your discreet travel needs, it’s on the quieter side.
The Dame Kip vibrator is perfect for tossing in your suitcase. Sure, it’s on the small size and can fit into the palm of your hand, but it’s still a winner when it comes to intensity. Its cupped-face design allows the entire vulva to get some action while the flutter tip helps control speed.
There are many rabbit-style vibrators available on the market, but this bullet option from Lovehoney may just take the cake for the best. Its rabbit ears are designed to hug the clit and provide a huge burst of pleasure and stimulation. But with this device, that’s only half of it: It offers 12 vibration levels and a travel lock to keep your toy safe.
This massager is similar to the full-sized Le Wand, just minus that, well, size. It’s also one of the most versatile toys on this list, with 20 pulse patterns, 10 vibration levels, and four stylish colors from which to choose. It’s also USB rechargeable and contains a nifty security feature to keep things under lock and key.
If you’re looking to explore your G-spot and make your clitoris do a happy dance, look no further than the We-Vibe Nova 2 massager. It features a waterproof exterior (great for suitcase spills), is made of body-safe silicone, has an ergonomic handle, and offers dual stimulation for your clit and G-spot.
This Crave Vesper Vibrator Necklace is the epitome of sex toys that don’t look like sex toys. In fact, you can even wear it without garnering so much as a head turn from others. Meant solely for external stimulation, it features four pulse settings, ranging from low to high, and has a single-use button to change its settings immediately.
Talk about discreet; I would have never known that this case is actually a vibrator. It has a stylish floral appearance on the outside that doesn’t really leave anything to the imagination. But in reality, this entirely waterproof bullet massager has 10 pulsation levels.
The B-Vibe Rimming Plug comes with the option to control its vibrations via a remote control. It also has seven rotating patterns to help prepare and relax your body for anal play. Not to mention, the silicone material is hypoallergenic and the device has a convenient carrying case.
It’s called the Lovehoney Silencer Whisper for one simple reason: it’s quiet! No, really, it’s made to be soft and faint, like a whisper. However, it certainly brings the heat, if you know what I mean. The long tip with a wavy texture is great for both internal and external stimulation. You can also change one of its three speeds and four patterns with one touch of a button.
Another Le Wand vibe to gush over and potentially bring on the road with you is this compact pleasure gift set. With it, you get a full collection of sex-toy goodies, including two small-sized Le Wand vibrators and a travel pouch for you to store them when you’re headed on your next flight.
As far as app-operated devices go, you’re looking at a true game-changer with this vibrating penis ring. After you download the We-Connect app, the real fun can begin. You have the option to control via the app or the remote and choose between 10 intensity levels. There’s a custom link fit that lets you choose between two sizes.
Another top pick from Dr. Queen is this Wanderlust bullet. Not only is it budget-friendly, but it’s also designed with “travel in mind,” she says. That’s mainly due to its small size, which can fit in the palm of your hand. The vibe has three intensity levels and easy-to-use controls to adjust the settings to help you achieve the biggest O possible.
This clitoral stimulator is non-contact, and instead uses pressure-wave technology to provide suction and pulsations. It has 11 different intensity settings and comes with a handy, pocket-sized cap with a magnetic closure to keep it your little secret.
