When a man is in his own comfortable home, he can indulge in a little masturbation with basically no preparation. Everything he needs is right at hand - and that means more than just his own hand. But what about if a guy happens to travel? Now, granted, masturbation really doesn’t demand anything other than that aforementioned hand, but most men tend to employ some other resources to make the experience even more pleasurable. And since masturbation can help both a man’s general health and his penis health, he doesn’t want to refrain from the experience when feeling aroused and alone while on the road. As this is the case, it can pay to prepare a little masturbation travel kit for any trips (especially long ones).

With that in mind, the following tips may come in handy when planning a personal kit.


- Bring lubrication. One of the fun things about staying in many hotels is taking advantage of the personal care products they provide, such as shampoo and conditioner. Many hotels also provide a body or hand lotion, which many solo male travelers use when feeling the need to relieve an insistent erection. But guys may be better off packing a supply of their own preferred lubricant. Penis skin is enormously sensitive and may react negatively to unfamiliar ingredients in the hotel’s lotion. Besides, some hotels don’t provide lotion - and, of course, many trips don’t involve a hotel stay. Sure, a guy who’s visiting his sister can ask his brother-in-law if he has any lotion he could borrow, but the brother-in-law is going to smirk knowingly as he hands it over. And good luck finding a lubricant on a camping trip!

- Bring condoms (especially if camping). Having a condom on hand is a good idea in the event that a guy finds some partner-based fun, but it can be a plus when masturbating, too. This is especially true when camping, as it is easy to forget to pack some tissues - and so clean-up will be easier with a condom.

- Pack toys. More and more men are utilizing sex toys in their masturbation routines. So if a dude favors a cock ring, dildo, penis sleeve, silicon vagina, etc., he should bring them along. One warning: if flying, it may be preferable to include these items in checked luggage, rather than run the risk of them being pulled out of a carry-on bag during the screening process.

- Include stimulating material. Men who typically masturbate to porn may want to include material - or a way to access material - while packing. The easiest way is to include a laptop, tablet or smartphone that can be used to access the adult sites of preference. If that’s not an option, purchasing magazines or books with sexually arousing photos and/or stories may be the route to take. Some men may instead prefer to print out material from some of their favorite online sites. As with toys, packing print material in a checked baggage may be a better idea than stashing them in a carry-on.

- Pack a penis health crème. A masturbation travel kit definitely needs to include a first rate penis health crème (health professionals recommend Man1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for skin) - not because the crème is used during masturbation but because it is needed to keep the penis healthy before and after masturbation. Many men end up treating their manhood rather roughly during masturbation, which can require the application of a crème with soothing, moisturizing agents like Shea butter and vitamin E to help repair raw, sore penis skin. All that rough handling may also damage the sensitive nerve endings on the penis, "deadening" the feeling. A crème with L carnitine, a neuroprotective ingredient which helps restore lost sensation, can help relieve that unwanted numbness that impacts the sensations a man feels when masturbating.
