The founder of a sex toy company has inside secrets on how to travel with your favorite bedroom accessory. Ethan Imboden has flown around the world and knows how security agents pry into your luggage and discover your toys. He says the safest way to travel is to place your product in the original packaging and stuff it in your carry-on. But first, take out the batteries. Short of that, it's OK to put it into a zip-lock bag with a note explaining the contents.
Ethan says (quote) "Take comfort in the fact that these guys have seen it all. If the TSA agent shakes their head as you pass through, it might simply be to express their disappointment that you're only bringing one vibrator. The worst stories I've heard have less to do with mean TSA agents and more to do with the witnesses. For instance, parents being questioned with children beside them or women being confronted near their unsuspecting husbands."
