Yes, one post wonder, controversial subject, OP has not returned to post...likely a troll, but as Boaty posted...at least its amusing!

Oops, wait, the OP did return, so maybe not!

Next option for fun: how far can we take this before the mods shut it down!

Re: Adult toys onboard

M mm mm! Interesting delema you have on your hands. On some of them I think I would tie a string to them and hang them on a thru hull fitting and the others might best be stashed in with your fishing lures. Sounds like you'll have a great time on your passages, enjoy!!

OK, since you are aparrently not a troll. Real world experience: We used to have a toy drawer aboard, nothing as extensive as your collection, but obvious toys none the less. In many years of cruising, Ive never had anything more than a cursory search of the boat done, and even that very rarely, but officials did open the toy drawer at least once that I recall...didn't say a word, didnt even crack a smile...kind of disappointing. But of course that was in the Carib, not the Mid East.

We did have a female friend open the toy drawer once while getting a tour of the boat. That was amusing, but no big deal she said: they had a toy drawer too!

Re: Adult toys onboard

While thinking about this, one of the things that crossed my mind...


When visiting a country get in touch with the local sex toy shops and find out what toys they do sell, and what if anything they are prohibited from importing. This won't give you a lot of legal backup, but if you know toy X is available in country, then it would give you a good idea that it is legal to import as ships stores.

Re: Adult toys onboard

belizesailor, thank you very much. That's exactly the first-hand-experience i've been looking for. Does anyone have similar experiences in areas which could be more problematic, like South Africa or Indonesia?

While we do have tons of pictures (even some in and on the boat) and i probably would find something which would be legally ok to post, please understand that i won't do this due to privacy reasons.

Buzz kill

would PM'ing a list of recipients be better? then technically it's not "public" just a private message to a few dozen of your closest friends

Re: Adult toys onboard

Brave question.

I wouldn't worry about it.

Boats are seldom searched with that amount of detail for no reason.

Nothing is illegal and in fact, I'm sure a lawyer could find an alternate use for every item on the boat, including the anchor.

Re: Adult toys onboard

I you are going from northern Europe to the tropics, your sex life is not going to be the same. We used to joke that 'tropical sex' was touching two sweaty finger tips together. Think about playing around in the water.

The officials do profile the yachties --younger ones are more likely to be smuggling drugs and therefore more likely to be inspected.

Yes, I have heard of customs officials confiscating 'porn' so they can personally inspect each item to see if it offends (excites) them.

Re: Adult toys onboard

Just keep in mind, you'll need a bigger battery bank and solar array.
