Sex Toys Worthy of a Spot in your Bug Out Bag

Thousands of emergency supplies and survival checklists are published online with one common flaw- they overlook sexual safety and health items.

In the unlikely event that you have to bug out, you will thank yourself for including these important items in your go-bag or in your off-site supply cache. 


If you or someone you love is a menstruating person, you need to plan for that. Traditional tampons and pads are bulky and will take up too much precious space in your go-bag. Reusable menstrual cups, like Fun Factory’s Fun Cup, can be used, emptied, and re-used for the duration of your evacuation. 

Fun Cup menstrual cups come in sets of two. We recommend purchasing one set and simply splitting it up- one for use in your everyday life and the second packed away in your go-bag. 


Silicone-based lubricants are all-purpose, hypoallergenic, and can be safely used by any person. Additionally, these lubricants have a years-long shelf life. Not only are these lubes used for intimate purposes but they are a safe and effective way to prevent rubbing and chafing.

Many evacuation safety plans responsibly contemplate the potential of a distance walked or hiked while loaded down with supplies. But they all miss this: The most common hiking injury is chafing. This painful condition happens to thighs, groin, shoulders, lower back and hips, butt cheeks and nipples.

Real talk here:
You don’t want bleeding nipples or a blistered ballsack added on to the stress you’re facing on your bug out. A layer of silicone lubricant prevents 100% of these injuries- easily. Don’t get caught without it. 

Silicone lubricants go a long way- so you can bring a small, light weight bottle and be sure it will last for the duration of your ordeal. We recommend Swiss Navy brand because the pump tops can be securely locked during transport and it is very affordable.


The majority of condoms sold in the United States will be pre-lubricanted with a silicone-based lubricant making them slippery right out of the wrapper. Obviously, this is preferable for most every-day condom usage but, for your go-bag, we recommend bringing non-lubricated varieties. 

Here’s why: If you heed our advice, you already have silicone lube with you! Also, condoms are designed as safe and effective tools to prevent sexually transmitted infection transmission as well as pregnancy.

If you are a person that can become pregnant or are capable of fertilizing an egg, a bug out situation is probably not an ideal time to become pregnant. Likewise, access to medical care will likely be scarce so you definitely don’t want to have to deal with a new infection during this stressful time. 


Sexual arousal and orgasm is good for your body and mind in myriad ways. A bug out situation will, no doubt, be dangerous and stressful. Sex can be utilized to help you and your partner, if you have one, cope. Consider taking a small, battery operated vibrator with you.* 

*If you don't regularly use a vibrator in your everyday, evacuation isn't the time you are going to start using one. So obviously, this advice isn't for everyone!

What makes a good emergency vibrator?

    • One you are already familiar with and know works for you!
    • One that is small and reliable! Pick one with an outstanding warranty as they will tend to be better made to begin with.
    • One that is non-porous and hypoallergenic- made of silicone or ABS plastic. 

Bonus Battery Tips!

Check the expiration date on your batteries before purchase. Look for the freshest pack possible. Many batteries have a shelf life of ten years, so they will last in your supply cache.

Don't pre-load batteries in ANY electronic device you bring. Batteries are likely to corrode if left in storage inside of a device. This will ruin your batteries and your device (be that a flashlight, emergency radio, or a vibrator!)
