Who runs the world? *insert Beyonce voice*
I know, I couldn't help myself from finishing that with,"Girls" either. I mean, we've come a long way! From being unable to vote or own land and property, to becoming CEO's, Presidents (globally), and, yes you guessed it, speaking up for ourselves in the bedroom and demanding pleasure! The old school mentality of sex is only enjoyable for the man is out the window. Today, we finally realize that it's an act done between 2 (or more) individuals who are all deserving of satisfaction. One way to ensure that all parties are happy is to introduce some external assistance, such as dildos, vibrators, and cock rings. That's right, sex toys can help assist you and/or your partner in reaching levels of pleasure never before imagined.
However, there's one catch. Not all countries have warmed up to the idea of adult entertainment. Did you know that sex toys are in fact illegal in certain regions of the world? Shocking, I know! Could you imagine packing for the wildest vacation of your life, and landing directly into jail because of the bunny in your luggage?
Not under my watch! I'm here to help put your mind at ease. Below I've compiled a list of countries that you should probably avoid bringing your favorite sex toys to. They're not necessarily illegal in all of them, but they can definitely be confiscated or found offensive to authorities and the local culture.
1. Vietnam: Sex toys can be confiscated at customs and you can receive a million dong fine. Unless, of course, you're good at hiding in plain sight. Would anyone ever guess that our AdultLuxe Sexy Squirrel Clit Sucker and GSpot Vibrator is in fact a sex toy? Make sure it's not charged before landing and all it is is a stress toy!
2. Thailand: the trade, purchase, or distribution of sex toys is punishable by up to three years in prison and six thousand baht. However, you might be able to get away with a small vibrator, such as our Femme Mia 2 Lipstick Vibrator, hidden in your purse as long as it's well hidden and not packaged for sale.
3. Maldive: Oh, how heartbreaking! These beautiful islands have sex toys specified in their import laws. Yours can get confiscated and you can be denied entry to the country. If you get past security, you still face the possibility of arrest. Perhaps reconsider that couple's getaway destination, or simply go down each other old school 😉
4. United Arab Emirates: Similar to many other countries mainly ruled by Islamic law, the Unite Arab Emirates also has anti-obscenity laws. The punishment for having sex toys in your bag can vary from confiscation to fines (>$250) and signing documentation declaring you will not be bringing sex toys again.
5. Saudi Arabia: Sex toys are deemed pornographic under Islamic Law and will, therefore, be confiscated.
6. Malaysia: The mere possession of a sex toy can be punished through imprisonment for up to 3 years, fined, or both; this law applies to importation and selling of said possession.
7. India: Any object that basically even makes you think of "lascivious, or overtly sexual thoughts and behaviors" is deemed to be obscene and therefore, punishable. The law also applies to phallic-shaped massagers.
8. Alabama, USA: Oh, USA. Home of the free... unless free means you like orgasms and live in or visit Alabama. The sale of adult toys, which is any device that stimulates human genital organs, is a criminal act in Alabama.
So what do you guys think, will Sex Toys Rule the World? Honestly, out of the 195 countries in the world, only 4% limit your forms of play. I say that's a pretty decent compromise - even if the real list is longer, I'd take the odds (that are clearly in our favor 🤪 ) Therefore, yes sex toys do rule the (orgasmic) world indeed. But you tell me, would you risk a fine or jail time in any of these countries? Drop the comments below 👇🏻

Note: I'm not an expert in customs and importation, and therefore, my advice is not legally binding. I am not suggesting breaking laws for pleasure, and these are only for entertainment purposes.
