Let me tell you a secret... You don’t need all of the “travel-friendly” items we bloggers are trying to sell you.  Even those of us, like myself, who advocate packing light still push dozens of “essential” products for travel.  There are some must-haves, of course.  These are far less common than the nice to haves or the “you are only buying these because someone told you it was necessary, but it won’t leave your suitcase” haves.  Stop packing like you are going to visit a remote tribe in the Amazon, (Unless you are ACTUALLY traveling to visit a remote tribe in the Amazon.) Paris has tampons, Madrid sells Ibuprofen (it may have a different name internationally), Seoul sells more beauty products that you would ever want.  Explore not just tourist sites.  Venture into a pharmacy or a grocery store.  Adventure can often be found in the most mundane of places. 

Here is a radical thought coming from a website selling travel-friendly items, but trust me, limit the gadgets and gizmos to less than five items. 

With that said, here are a couple of must-haves and one nice to have. 

Must-haves:

Condoms – yes, they can be purchased in any country, but it is better to have them on hand when the mood strikes.  You don’t have to pack an industrial-sized box.  Plan on replacing them as you go before you run out.  Just like in the US, they can be bought at any drug or convenience store.  Check out our 3pack of Comfort Fit Sustain Natural Condoms.

Vibe – You know why this is a must-have.  Make sure you have a quality travel-friendly vibe.  The cheap vibes are not sexy or fun.  Your packing real estate is valuable.  Don’t waste it on something that doesn’t work. We carry two travel-friendly vibes by Fun Factory that we recommend because they are an easily transportable size and are powered by one AA battery.  Check out our Fun Factory Jam and Volita.

UV sanitizer – Although this is a bit bigger than the other must-haves, it is still easily packable and ALWAYS in my suitcase.  I use this on the road to sanitize everything that will fit in it – the remote control in my hotel room (famous for being the dirtiest thing in a hotel), my sunglasses, my cell phone, and of course, my travel toys.  We sell and use the revolutionary UVee Go Play cleaner here at Sexy Fun World.  The UVee Go Play sanitizes in five minutes using a patented UV-C sanitizing process.  The coolest addition is the integrated combination lock.  Privacy is very Sexy.

Nice-to-have:

Wash Me Wear Me lingerie bag.  This cute bag separates your clean lingerie from the dirty.  It takes up very little room and is a wonderful organizer.  Packing tip – put a dryer sheet in both pouches to keep your luggage smelling fresh.

One last thing, Sexy Toy Stores are fun to visit around the world.  Look for them as you travel and maybe go check out a few.  Keep an eye out for our upcoming series – Sexy Store Spotlight.
