BDSM On The Road


My girl and I are getting ready to go away on vacation (to Scotland, if it matters). And sure, we’re planning to see the sights, eat the food, drink the drinks, and experience the countryside. But we’re also planning more than a bit of kinky, intimate time for ourselves because, well, what’s a vacation for? However, given that we’re flying overseas, it’s not really practical for us to lug around an extra suitcase’s worth of straps, rope, gags, floggers, paddles, singletails, and various other implements of destruction. 

Never mind the embarrassment should TSA call us out (honestly we don’t care), never mind that it might get stolen (that would really suck, as we have some nice gear and it’d be difficult to replace some of it). We simply don’t want to be dragging yet another bag around, one which we’ll have to pack and re-pack as we travel from place-to-place. Particularly since kink isn’t our primary reason for traveling (although engaging in kinky fuckery in exotic locales can be a great deal of fun).

So what’s a hardup kinkster to do when they’re stranded in a foreign land sans their well-worn and practiced gear? Why improvise! And it’s not terribly difficult or even expensive.

First up for us is stuff to get zeirah tied up. A quick visit to your local hardware store will have you up and running in no time at all. Pick up some cling film/pallet wrap, duct tape, a few coils of cotton clothesline, and perhaps some zip ties, and you’ll be good to go. The cling film does double duty, as it’s both good base for duct tape bondage, or you can coil it up for an improvised rope. Meanwhile the tape, clothesline, and zip ties are self explanatory.

In a pinch, simply pick up a few sheets and rip them into strips. I don’t recommend you use the ones found in your room. I also don’t recommend you surreptitiously lift a set from your hotel maid’s cart. Certainly not unless you’re planning on disposing of them well outside the purview of said hotel.

Personally, I’ll add some string, since I love to tie my girl’s bare feet and toes. Oh, and it’s probably a good idea to add a utility knife or some scissors to the list, since you’re going to need to cut somebody loose, and you may not have your usual pocket knife with you (given TSA regulations and the like).

Meanwhile, you’ll need some implements of destruction with which you can get medieval on your girl’s ass (and other delicate parts; YMMV). Where can you find such implements of kinky fuckery should you be touring the rural beauty of the Scottish Highlands and countryside? 

Truth is, most countries have taken a cue from America and have their own version of “Everything’s a Dollar” and “Dollar General”. In Scotland, it’s “Poundland” and “Pound World” (indeed, the ones we visited in 2017 were right next to each other, in the same mall). Just like in the U.S. of A. you can find a variety of spatulas, wooden spoons, cutting boards, rulers, and the usual various-and-sundry, all for the same pocket change you can find them stateside. I’m thinking I don’t need to tell you what to do with them.

Don’t forget the paint aisle, where you can get some wooden stirrers for free.

If you’re into sensation play, pick up some sisal twine or coconut rope. A hairbrush can do double duty as both an sensation and impact play toy.

So, really and for-true, you can improvise a fairly well-equipped dungeon experience for right around twenty bucks. And, best of all, you can leave it all behind when you come back. Although your hotel staff may wonder why you used so much duct tape and, hey, why did they have all these cooking implements when there’s no stove in the room?

One final tip: Do not, under any circumstances, hang your girl from the sprinkler head in the room! Grab a luggage cart for that sort of thing.

    What are some of the best homemade implements that would be good for travel?

    • That’s a really broad question. It entirely depends on what sort of play you’re looking for. And are you concerned with vanilla-looking toys that won’t get scrutiny from TSA?
