As travel in Australia starts to ramp up again, many of us are getting itchy to start getting out and about. First off, we would like to give you permission to explore sex however you like on your travels! Whether you are going solo, with a partner, or looking to hook up on your travels, we have put together some tips and tricks to help you prepare.
Preparation for a trip often involves checking out the travel guides for places you want to explore. If you are looking to hook up with people, you can download apps like Tinder, Grindr, Bumble, Lex or Her to find like-minded people. Make sure to stay safe, always know where you are going and let someone else know where you are going. Apps like bSafe or CloseCircle can help friends and family stay in contact with you. Apps like Siatata Travel Safe can also give you information about where local hospitals and clinics are located. If you are travelling with a partner, you may want to explore sex-culture hotspots or bring along books or movies that you can explore in the privacy of your own room.
Toya Recommends: 101 NIghts of Great Sex
The perfect companion to any adventure is lube. You can take a water-based lube to use with some toys or a silicone-based lube if you plan on playing in the water. Lube is a pro tip for travellers as it can also be used to help with chafing.

If you're travelling solo, there's no longer any reason to be embarrassed about bringing your favourite toy along. Many toys feature travel modes to prevent accidental vibration. There are even discreet toys that can hide in plain sight! Often when people travel they are willing to be a bit more experimental, so it could be a good time to try something new or risqué.
Safer sex means different things to different people. Make sure that you carry along the essential items you need to protect yourself from STIs and unwanted pregnancy. This can include everything from condoms and dental dams to birth control pills, Plan B or PrEP. Have a chat with your doctor to explore your options.
Remember you are only limited by your imagination! We wish you safe and pleasure-filled travels!
