3 things to remember before packing your sensual gadgets

Keep these in mind so they don’t get confiscated



Having a sex toy is not a crime, at least in several countries. Up until this moment, sex toys are still considered taboo, despite being packed with technology that they’re easily deemed as personal gadgets for self-pleasure.

During the pandemic, the shipments for sex toys rose since both singletons and couples are locked up — finding ways to quench their thirst and hold their libido in order to be safe from the rampaging virus.

Now that the world is starting to open up for domestic and overseas travel, people are starting to book their flights to make those long-overdue trips materialize into reality.

With the changes in behavior regarding self-pleasure, it’s easy to slip your favorite toys into your luggage so that you can bring your vibrating companion wherever you go.

But before you pack these travel companions, here are some things to remember:

Check the country you’re visiting

Not every country is willing to bat an eyelid at the sight of your beloved companion. That’s probably the case for the United States and the United Kingdom where sex toys aren’t illegal.

Countries like India, the United Arab Emirates, and the Maldives classify sex toys along the same lines as firearms, explosives, and weapons under the category of illegal pornographic material. This is the same for most Islamic countries.

If you don’t want your toy to get confiscated, or worse, find yourself behind bars and get persecuted, take the time to research the laws surrounding sex toys in your desired destination. Just to be really safe, keep them in your bedside drawer while you’re on holiday.

Always keep it small

Good things come in small packages. That’s particularly true for sex toys when you pack them inside your luggage. If the country you’re visiting allows you to bring your beloved toy, there are still restrictions you’ll need to check. For instance, the United Kingdom states that tools in carry-on baggage must be under 6cm.

If you don’t pack a compact device as your travel companion, it’s bound to be confiscated. Luckily, there are small, discreet, yet powerful bullet vibrators that you can bring with you anywhere you go. Such an example is the We-Vibe Tango X.

For men, the Arcwave Voy is a compact stroker that you can bring anywhere if you aim to level up your masturbation game.

On another note, if you’re still ancient and use battery-powered toys, don’t forget to remove the batteries to avoid them going off in the X-ray machine.

We love it quiet

On certain occasions that your toys started vibrating in your suitcase, it’s important that they remain quiet. To avoid cases like this, it’s important to look for devices with travel settings.

If my beard trimmer can stay locked while in my luggage, your sex toys should, too. For instance, the We-Vibe Melt comes with a travel lock feature so that it won’t turn on by itself once activated.

Other toys that you might want to check out are the We-Vibe Chorus (if you’re coupled up) or LIBERTY by Lily Allen which comes with a travel cover.

The GameSir G8 Galileo is great for PS Remote Play

While we wait for the PlayStation Portal



Gamesir G8 Galileo | PS Remote Play

We happen to be in a region where the PlayStation Portal has yet to be released. Good thing, PS Remote Play is available and GameSir has a controller you can hook up to your smartphone that’s readily compatible. Enter the GameSir G8 Galileo.

You might not see it right away, but the biggest difference with the G8 Galileo compared to other smartphone controllers (even the ones GameSir made themselves) is it’s actually full size. 

Watch our unboxing.

Most smartphone controllers prioritize portability. Thus, they’re more compact. That means smaller face buttons, smaller thumbsticks, and generally smaller overall profile. 

Usable, sure. But not exactly ideal for people with chubby hands like yours truly. 

BackBone One | GameSir G8 Galileo

This is also one of the primary reasons why, despite owning a Backbone One, I’ve rarely used it for its intended purpose. And the reason why the PlayStation Portal is appealing to me.

The GameSir G8 Galileo changes all of that because of its size. It’s also not just larger. Its ergonomics are great too. Your hands will sit nicely on the nice, curved handles for a more comfortable, more enjoyable handheld gaming session.

Another big area of convenience is you don’t necessarily have to have the GameSir app to make it work. Simply download the PS Remote Play app, register, and fire it up. 

To make sure it’s on PS Remote Play compatible mode, just press the Share and Options buttons simultaneously. Those are the tiny buttons on the left and right hand side of the controllers right above the left thumb stick and the face buttons. 

Upon pressing simultaneously, make sure the color on the GameSir logo on the lower right part of the controller is white. That’s how you know it’s on PS Remote Play mode. 

Currently green so you have to press the buttons for Remote Play.

Once done, just easily plug-in your smartphone with a USB-C port on GameSir’s signature flexible USB-C plug and off you go. 

Actual play time

Here’s a quick Marvel’s Spider-Man 2 gameplay using the GameSir G8 Galileo along with the HONOR Magic5 Pro with Remote Play:

This under a minute clip, naturally, isn’t representative of the entire Remote Play experience. Anyone who has tried it before knows that with extended play time, you’ll likely experience a few hiccups here and there. That’s just the nature of the beast. 

That said, this whole set-up has been generally great. Other than Spider-Man 2, I’ve managed to play a handful of quick NBA 2K24 games like this. I still racked up a handful of wins despite suffering from occasional latency trouble. 

The feel of the controller is fantastic and is easily the most enjoyable out of every other smartphone controller that I’ve tried before. And I’ve tried a few other than the Backbone One. There’s the GameSir X3,  GameSir X2 Pro-Xbox, and the Razer Kishi V2. 

Compatible games, mapping

Depending on the platform you’re on, the GameSir G8 Galileo will work on multiple other games. If you’re an iPhone 15 Series user, Remote Play, select Apple Arcade games, and even the AAA games set to release for that iPhone will work with this controller. 

For Android users, it’s the usual handful of controller supported games that will work with this. For everything else, you’ll have to resort to mapping — a task for those with patience. 

If you need more tutorials on how to get it working, just follow GameSir on Facebook or YouTube. They constantly post tutorials.

iPhone 15 series will get the first Qi2 wireless chargers

More chargers are coming by Christmas



While wireless chargers are already viable charging solutions today, the technology is still clawing its way to upending wired charging as a universally accepted solution. The technology is constantly growing, though. After announcing the new standard at the start of the year, the Wireless Power Consortium (WPC) has confirmed that Qi2 wireless chargers will start appearing in time for the holidays.

Today, the WPC announced a lineup of brands which will rock Qi2 first. Coming by Christmastime, the first chargers will come from Belkin, Mophie, Anker, and Aircharge. Additionally, over a hundred devices are already in the process of getting certification for the standard.

Besides the usual suspects of charger manufacturers, the WPC has also confirmed that the iPhone 15 series will start the train of Qi2 chargers for the holidays. That doesn’t come as a surprise, though. According to the WPC’s announcement months ago, Apple lent its MagSafe technology to help develop the Qi2 charging standard.

Naturally, the promise is faster charging than the current generation. By how much is still a question that will also depend on manufacturers. Additionally, the standard will have a better magnetic system. Like in Apple’s MagSafe chargers, devices will automatically snap into the optimal position when connected with Qi2 chargers.
