Hooking Up On Vacay? Here’s What You Need For A Spring Break Sexual Wellness Kit

Spring break can look different for everyone; It can be long days tanning by the pool, traveling to visit cool destinations or family, or just getting some much-needed rest. All of these are satisfying and well-deserved(congrats on getting this far), but if you’re in a long-distance relationship and haven’t seen your SO in a bit (like me) or just someone who likes to have some good ol’ steamy fun, spring break can mean, well, sex. 

Without the chaos of school occupying 90% of our brains, our bodies can be more in tune with our desires, and our pent-up energy can finally have the time to emerge. Whether you’re spending your break in the snow or in the sun, getting hot and heavy by the fireplace, or getting oiled up with beachside flirting, these are things to be prepared for. Besides, sex is a form of stress relief, which I’m sure we can all use. 

But you know what’s even sexier than foreplay? Safe sex, OFC! If you’re hoping to add sex to your itinerary this spring break, check out this roundup of items that could be handy in your sexual wellness kit. Plus, you can find them in travel sizes, so they fit perfectly into that suitcase. You’re welcome in advance, BTW.

Eco-friendly condoms.

Beginning with the basics, it’s no surprise that the common condom isn’t the best for the planet. But what if I told you there was a latex condom that was vegan and FDA-approved? Lovability is a female-founded brand that provides sexual wellness products as well as the viral Waterslyde sex toy. (IYKYK.) Their condoms ($35) are packaged in 100% recyclable paper and don’t have chemicals, parabens, gluten, dyes, or fragrances. 

Dental Dams.

Though having a history of not being the most common item on the market, knowing that protection for oral forms of sex exist has been instrumental in queer representation in sex products. Glyde’s dental dams are among the most popular, but the brand Lorals’ lingerie dental dam equivalent ($25) recently got FDA approved and is considered a more comfortable, sexier option.

Travel-sized vibrator.

While bullet vibrators may not be your go-to, you never know when a sexual encounter will need a bit of a boost, or if the night doesn’t turn out as planned, it doesn’t mean you should give up on your pleasure. The Plus One Vibrating Bullet ($16) surprises you with 10 different settings, is waterproof, and won’t break the bank, so you can buy yourself one extra cocktail!

Vaginal wipes.

When things get good, they can get messy. And if you’re in a particular hookup spot, it’s good to have some wipes on hand. maude’s Compressed Towel Pack ($12) is hypoallergenic, compostable, and paraben-free. While not many wipes come in the pack, it’s useful in a pinch.

Travel-sized lube.

Being real, sometimes foreplay and a lubricated condom aren’t enough — and that’s okay. That’s where lube becomes your bestie. Enter, The Good Clean Love Almost Naked Organic Personal Lubricant ($7). It’s water-based, recommended by gynecologists, and made from organic aloe leaf juice without parabens and petrochemicals. 


Casual hookups are all fun and games… until they aren’t. Don’t let a night of fun turn into weeks of stress. Plan B ($33) is the easiest to get, but if you’re able to get a prescription, Ella is also recommended.

Safe Sex Kit.

To condense most of these items to a lifesaver pack, consider this Safe Sex Kit by Stix ($77), which features condoms, pregnancy tests, an emergency contraceptive, wipes, and UTI and vaginal pH tests.
