CAN I WEAR A CHASTITY DEVICE THROUGH METAL DETECTORS AND AIRPORT SECURITY?


INTRODUCTION 


You may wonder if it's possible to wear your chastity device through metal detectors and airport security. As you know, most chastity devices contain metal at some parts, either by the device itself, or within the locking mechanism. 


Chastity devices are made from different materials, including metal, steel, plastic, and silicone. Most of the time it includes an integrated lock or a brass padlock. Even though the amount of metal within the locks is minimal, it might set off detectors and trigger TSA body scan - a situation you would prefer to avoid. 

 

Rest assured, if you still decide to wear your standard chastity while passing security, this is allowed by the TSA rules. The worst that can open is a few giggles and a body check. 

To have a worry free chaste experience, we have come up with solutions. Read through to find out. 

WHY GET LOCKED UP IN CHASTITY ON A DAILY BASIS?


There are a few reasons why someone might want to wear a chastity device on a daily basis. For some, it may be a way to abstain from sexual activity. For some, it may be part of a BDSM lifestyle or kink play; for others, it may be a way to show devotion to a particular person or cause.


Whatever the reason, there are a few things to remember if you plan to wear a chastity device daily. First, ensure you have a good quality device that is comfortable to wear for long periods. Here at oxy-shop, we have many different types and styles of chastity devices available, so do your research, browse our store and find one that works for you.


Finally, remember that wearing chastity is not about depriving yourself of sexual pleasure – it can actually be a very pleasurable experience! If you focus on the mental and emotional aspects of chastity play, you’ll find that the physical sensations can be just as intense as traditional sex.


WHAT ARE THE ADVANTAGES AND DISADVANTAGES OF LONG-TERM CHASTITY?


A few advantages and disadvantages to long-term chastity are worth considering before deciding to enter into a chastity agreement.


The advantages of long-term chastity include the following:


  • More focus on other aspects of your relationship: When you are not focused on sex, you can put more effort into other areas of your relationship, such as communication, quality time, and physical affection. This can lead to a stronger bond between you and your partner.
  • Increased sexual anticipation and pleasure: Because you are abstaining from sex, the buildup of sexual tension can increase the pleasure you feel when you finally have sex. This is due to the dopamine release in the brain, which creates feelings of pleasure and excitement.
  • Improved self-control: Chastity can also help improve your self-control and discipline in other areas of your life.

On the flip side, the disadvantages of long-term chastity include the following: 


  • Less sexual satisfaction: If you are someone who enjoys sex frequently, then abstaining from sex for an extended period can lead to less sexual satisfaction. 
  • Potential for conflict: If one partner wants to engage in sexual activity while the other does not, this can create some tension and conflict within the relationship. 
  • May not be realistic for some couples: If a couple has a very active sex life, it may not be feasible or realistic for them to abstain from sex for an extended period.

WILL A CHASTITY CAGE SET OFF METAL DETECTORS?

Chastity at airport


For office work, conventions or else, you might go through security before entering a venue. While not all detectors might be triggered by a chastity, we recommend staying on the safe side and avoid the awkwardness of the situation.


A chastity is allowed to wear, yet not everyone might know or understand the practice. If you end up flagged for search, just be honest and the security agent should let you through without issue. You might need to show it before being clear passage, not everyone is ready to flash their locked penis in public. 


Both metal detectors and Body scanners might notice the chastity belt. For metal detectors, while most chastity cages are made from stainless steel or other non-ferrous metals, some do contain small amounts of ferrous metal. If your device does contain ferrous metal, it will set off the metal detector, and you may be subject to additional screening.


For a body scanner, the security agent screen will show an anomaly on your groin area. You might have a pat down but not especially focused on that area. 



CAN I WEAR A CHASTITY CAGE THROUGH AIRPORT SECURITY?

When it comes to airport security, there are a lot of factors to consider. One is whether or not you can wear your chastity device through airport security. There are no federal restrictions when traveling with adult toys in the US, so it is not an issue. 


We do recommend removing the cage and putting it in the carry one, unlock before security and relock after at the airport bathroom. If the ring is not made with metal, you can keep it on as a reminder. Each oxy chastity cage comes with a carry pouch, which is the perfect companion for storage and transportation of your device. 


While the TSA doesn’t have set rules against other BDSM toys, if you are traveling with a particularly large or stainless steel chastity cage, it is possible that it could set off alarms. In this case, it’s up to the agent to determine whether an explanation is needed. 


You might be taken for a private search, but you will be fine, save for the little awkwardness. TSA (Transport Security Administration) mentions that the chastity device would not be a reason for stopping someone even if seen on a body scanner.


Chastity pass TSA body scan


If you're in the US, enroll in the TSA PreCheck program if you travel reasonably often. You get an expedited line to go through, you don't have to remove your shoes, the laptop from its case, your belt, etc. and you just go through a basic metal detector. 


Be sure to have your key with you to remove the device if necessary, and be ready to explain what it is if asked. If you are concerned about this and want to avoid this awkward situation, you should go for an alternative that won’t trigger the alarms. 


CHASTITY DEVICES YOU CAN WEAR THROUGH METAL DETECTORS AND AIRPORT SECURITY


While a variety of chastity devices are available on the market, not all are suitable for wear through metal detectors and airport security. If you're planning to pass security with a chastity belt , via metal detectors or body scans, wear one that won’t trigger any of those. By doing so, you will avoid unnecessary questions about your private life and also avoid delays. 


Oxy’s 100% metal free Chastity' is an excellent choice if you want to go through metal detectors without setting off any alarm. It comes with two locking options (the integrated metal lock and a plastic locking option, “Air Lock”). The “AirLock” is what you’d want to go for as it is 100% metal free. 


The Airlock is a clever little pin designed as a replacement for the integrated lock used in chastity devices. This accessory is compatible only with oxy’s Guardian devices. This Airlock pin is made of Nylon, it is  durable, easily cleaned, and looks like it's a part of the original cage. To use the Air Lock pin, make sure you thread the plastic lock through the pin before inserting the pin into the cage.


The plastic locks all have a different serial number, the only way to release it is breaking it. If a plastic lock is broken, the keyholder will notice it and act accordingly. 


If you already own a Guardian device, the AirLock accessory can be added. If you do not, go for the 100% chastity metal free set. 



CONCLUSION


It's important to know that you may need to go through special procedures when wearing a chastity device and passing through metal detectors or at body scans.In most cases, you can pass through without any problems, but it's always best to be prepared. 


Luckily, there are solutions such as removing the device pre-screening or wearing a metal free device which will provide a smooth passage.
