Not sure where to post this, but hopefully someone can help.
Does anyone have any experience travelling to and in India with a vibrator?
I've read that it's illegal. Can someone confirm this or add any insight.

Cheers, Ess.

pack the pieces seperately and get the batteries once in India-i'm sure most Indian Customs officers wouldn't know what one is-although wouldn't want to be in your shoes if they found it and did know!!!

Somebody once told me a battery operated toothbrush makes a good alternative!

This reference is six years old - maybe the laws have changed?

Judging by the Economic Times, perhaps they have: http://articles.economictimes.indiat...-local-markets

The Legal Issue

UNCLEAR: Laws in India are silent on sale of sex toys and erotic apparels. According to internet lawyer Lekhesh Dholakia, the concern arises more from the manner in which these sex toys/ apparel and related products are displayed and exhibited for sale. Since in most cases these items carry graphic, pictorial descriptions, which could be perceived as being obscene, they could attract the provisions of the Indian Penal Code, 1860, and the Information Technology Act, 2000 (for internet sales).

I'll assume you don't have an "obscene" vibrator. Pack it in your checked luggage.

Tasteless jokes about which other fora this question could fit, follow (well done, however for choosing packing tips).


Electronics in India?

Health and Well-being in India?

Crossing the Border? (or at least the threshold)

Getting There and Around?

Scams and Annoyances? (there was a buzzing noise from the next room for half the night)

Off the Beaten Trail?

Why are you dangling carrots in front of us posters? We have our own upright opinions, independent and put forth without any-body support.
If you find my posts confrontationist, please bear, I am an old frustrated guy who has nothing better to do than sit on rocking chair and curse the world whole day

I guess what the police don't know won't hurt them. Use it discretly. Maybe invest in one that is known for being 'quiet'. Maybe don't pack in your hand luggage - haha, you'd be mortified at customs if your bag got searched. HAHAHAA! Funny thread!

Practical answer: get a small one and pack it, as already advised, in checked-in baggage.

You could always ask the rickshaw driver to drive off-road,that should hit the spot. KK
SOS: Missing Person...

Please look at this thread: http://www.indiamike.com/india/uttar...012-a-t159252/

He could be anywhere now: You might have met him, be able to help, or give information.
