What To Pack For A Sexy Summer Holiday

How to sex up your suitcase

Gazing through the rain spattered window into the wet gloom this morning, it seems a cruel joke of nature that our summer officially started yesterday. Despite the evidence, thoughts are turning to a traditionally hot summer, with adverts for BBQs, barbecue food, garden furniture and the like reminding us of what we’re missing every time we turn on the TV. The infamous damp British summer has struck again and you’d be forgiven for wanting to get on a plane, leave the rain behind and enjoy a week or two in the sun. Just daydreaming about feeling that warm white sand between my toes and sipping a cool cocktail on the beach of a beautiful Greek isle has lifted my mood. Have you been persuaded? Ready to book your trip? Then you’ll want to know what to pack for a sexy summer holiday.

How To Avoid A Red Face/Full Body Search At The Airport

One of the biggest fears people have about taking sexy gear with them on holiday (sex toys, condoms, spanking gear etc) is that they’ll be hauled out in front of everyone as you’re going through security. For most people, sex toys and anything to do with their sex life is incredibly private and the thought of these most intimate possessions being on public display is absolutely terrifying. Fear not, there are ways you can take your sex toys & sexy bits on your summer holiday without anyone else needing to know.

It’s advisable not to wear any sex toys as you travel, as hot as the idea might be. Sorry dear, I won’t be travelling with that butt plug up my arse and no, the remote control love egg fun will have to wait until we arrive at the hotel. For fans of chastity devices/penis cages, there are ways you can avoid triggering a search at the airport if you need to wear your chastity cage while you travel (long term confinement or long distance power exchange for example). Wear a chastity cage which is entirely plastic or polycarbonate, not metal, like the CB-6000. Instead of using a metal padlock, you can buy plastic numbered tags which will retain and ensure your penis bondage without drawing everyone’s attention to your predicament as you travel.

Personally, I wouldn’t mind if the airport security officials happened upon a bullet vibrator in my handbag but if the idea freaks you out, you’re best off checking that none of your hand luggage contains sex toys. It’s doubtful that the travel security officials would be happy with you carrying vibrators which contain batteries on to the aircraft in any case. Pop them into your suitcase for travel in the hold instead.

Pay attention to any travel restrictions on liquids as well, these will apply to any sex lubes you have in your bag. Sealed sachets and pillow packs containing less than 10ml and which are clearly labelled should be fine, but again for peace of mind you might want to pop these into a cosmetics case in your suitcase as you travel.

I don’t see anything whatsoever shameful about carrying a couple of condoms in my wallet but I’d probably stick the other 4 boxes of 12 Durex Extra Thin into my suitcase rather than leaving them in my handbag.

Single And Packing It Large

Heading for a sexy summer holiday as a sex-loving single? Make sure any sex you’re going to have while you’re on holiday is completely safe by getting your sex health status checked out and up to date before you travel. Of course this is a great idea anytime, not just when you’re on holiday! Ensuring you’re STI-free isn’t just a good idea from your own health perspective but also shows respect for any potential sex partners.

Having a clear sexual health status isn’t a green light for unprotected sex with whoever you fancy. Unfortunately, not everyone What To Pack For A Sexy Summer Holiday | Sex Up Your Suitcaseprioritises sex health checks or respect for people they have sex with, so make sure you’re completely protected by stocking up with barrier methods of sex protection before you travel. You can find condoms at the lowest prices online with very fast and discreet delivery – and don’t forget the dental dams for oral sex and rimming sessions.

Sex as a single isn’t all warnings and caution though – sex should be fun too. How about packing a few flavoured lubes for oral fun (beware of glycerine and other ingredients if you use vaginally) and spice up the safety with textured condoms instead of plain ones.

Remember that a fun and exciting sex life doesn’t need to involve another person. The relaxation of a sexy summer holiday can lead to heightened levels of pleasure in masturbation. Leave those worries and stresses at What To Pack For A Sexy Summer Holiday | Sex Up Your Suitcasehome and let the days in holiday sunshine lead to some epic solo sex. Pack a discreet rechargeable sex toy like the We Vibe Tango Bullet Vibrator so you don’t have to worry about travelling with or running out of batteries – and don’t forget the USB to mains adaptor plug and any UK to local adaptor on top of that.

Shop for and pack some sexy clothes to boost your confidence and which will make you feel amazing when you’re on your sexy summer holiday. Gorgeous lingerie doesn’t have to be worn to impress anyone else but yourself, but if you do happen to enjoy a holiday romance you’ll have the outfits ready to dazzle. Don’t forget some sexy swimwear for the beach or by the pool.

Although being on holiday can make you feel like you’ve waved goodbye to all cares and responsibilities, especially with a few holiday cocktails thrown into the mix, make sure you don’t let your guard down when it comes to safe sex.

Sexy Holiday Essentials For Couples

When you’re in a long term relationship, planning for a sexy summer holiday can be extremely exciting. The thought of chilling out someplace where you’re not staring at the same four walls, with a glorious sunshine bonus too.

What To Pack For A Sexy Summer Holiday | Sex Up Your SuitcaseHaving a seductive secret as you head off for your sexy summer holiday can be extremely exciting, so why not make planning and shopping before the trip part of the shared adventure. Talk about what you’d like to try out when you’re on holiday, from sex positions and roleplay fantasies to discreet and travel friendly sex toys. Whether your relationship is lesbian, gay, hetero, poly or other, there’s sexy pleasure tools out there to spice up everyone’s sex life. Write a sexy adventure list – and you could even take it with you to tick off once you’re there if that’s what floats your boat.

How about packing a sexy summer holiday surprise for your partner? Plotting a seductive surprise in the bedroom is often a great way to spice things up at home, so with the added excitement of being in a hotel room abroad, as well as the relaxed atmosphere between you both, you could both be in for a memorable treat. It could be as simple as a piece of lingerie or item of underwear bought especially for one romantic evening together while you’re away. You might choose to invest in a sex toy you can enjoy using together, like a rechargeable vibrating cock ring for PIV sex or a quiet but powerful vibrator like the We Vibe Rave (billed as a G-spot vibrator but it really works for me clitorally) to hold between you. If roleplay helps you get your kink on there’s plenty of sexy uniforms and dress-up outfits available – and being on holiday in an unfamiliar place will help with the seduction and intrigue element.

Don’t forget to pack condoms and/or dental dams if you need to use them in your relationship, or your usual method of birth control such as the Pill if you don’t need a barrier form of contraception. Sachets of lube are easy to pack in your cosmetics case and their small size means you can use them while you’re on your sexy summer holiday and there’s no need to bring them home. Simply enjoy super slippery sex while you’re abroad and dispose of the empty sachets or pillow packs while you’re there.

I really like these Cheeky Weekender sex packs which contain a bunch of items to spice up sex together. There’s a choice of three types with a variety of lubes, condoms, vibrating bullet and/or cock ring and handy cleanser with magic expandable wipes.

Planning A Sexy Summer Holiday As Parents

Can you ever really have a sexy summer holiday if you’re travelling with kids? As a parent, I understand how difficult it can be to make time for any sort of sexiness, never mind the lengthy, languid, easy-like-Sunday-morning slow fuckery the movies would have us believe is all a perfect sex life consists of. How on earth are you going to get any adult time to yourselves when you’re on holiday this summer?

What To Pack For A Sexy Summer Holiday | Sex Up Your SuitcaseIt can be very difficult, I’ll admit. You’ve got to get a bit clever with it and take your chances for ‘parental sex’ (aka the Quickie) where you can find them. First of all, you’ll need to be in the mood, which is a challenge on its own when the rugrats are demanding everything from you at any moment of the day. A brilliant way to tune your mind into the sexy channel is with an erotic book or three. Although you can find erotic books with discreet covers, the hands-down winner for discreet sexy reading is an e-book reader like a Kindle. You can load up hundreds of books into one slim device which is not only way more portable but no one will know what you’re reading. Just don’t forget the charger – and the UK to local power adaptor.

Sometimes there’s just no way to say exactly what saucy scenes are on your mind to your partner because of little ears. If you arrange whatever bolt-on or allowance you need in order to use your mobile device when you’re on holiday, you can send flirty texts, What’s App, Facebook inbox or Skype messages to your partner which are safely away from your little ones’ eyes and ears. It can be really fucking hot knowing your partner is thinking of you in a sexy way even when you’re somewhere totally inappropriate for such thoughts and behaviour, like in the middle of a theme park or over a family dinner in the hotel restaurant. It can also be extremely sexy watching your partner squirm or trying not to show any reaction once you’ve sent them the messages and you’re acting like nothing’s happened at all. The build-up of need and desire can make sex even wilder when it does finally happen – even if it is ‘only’ a quickie. Hey, quickies are the new marathon sex. Approved by parents.

If your children are older and are in their own room – maybe adjoining your own – while you’re away, it’s obviously easier to settle down to the good stuff once it’s past bedtime. You can rifle through your private bag (and whether it’s just a cosmetics bag with a padlock on or the soft case from the House of Plume Moi Box Deluxe set, it’s a good idea to make sure your kids don’t find your sex stash) and enjoy your ribbed condoms, flavoured lubes, discreet bullet vibrators and vibrating cock rings and the like.

Travelling with young children who need to sleep in your room? Hmm – you’ve pretty much lucked out if you don’t like having sex with your partner while your child’s in the same room. I do know people who don’t mind parental sex (bite that pillow) while the baby’s in the travel cot or if a toddler is fast asleep in the same room, but I’ve never been able to do it myself. I have been known to put a travel cot in the en-suite bathroom of a hotel room when my son was a baby, which meant the door could be closed while he was safely asleep and I could enjoy some sexy action without worry. If don’t want to fuck with them in the same room and the bathroom isn’t big enough to form a makeshift ‘cot room’, then are there any creches or children’s activity clubs at the resort? These can be taken advantage of in the day (as long as they’re trustworthy and have your absolute parental approval obviously) so you and your partner can make the most of your hotel room and get yourself set for an early night – of deep, post-coital sleep.
