How safe is it to have sex with strangers in London?
Sexperimenting in new time zones can have more dangerous consequences than doing so in your real life, says Kress.

Are there laws on having casual sex?
Some countries have very strict rules on who you can have sex with, where you can have sex, and even how you have sex (don’t ask me to elaborate). Casual sex is often looked down upon, especially when with a local. I’m sure you’ve heard of couples arrested in the Middle East for fornicating on the beach or even just kissing in public. Even if you don’t agree with the rules, you have to know the consequences of breaking them. You’re not in your home country anymore, so you can’t always apply your home country’s laws. I think it’s pretty safe to say that most countries frown upon public sex, so be wary of that the next time you get the urge while, oh, I don’t know, in a bulldozer on the side of the road in Malaysia. I swear I’m just picking that example out of thin air.
Can I bring sex toys with me when I go to London?

You can pack smaller items since you’re traveling and don’t want your sex toys weighing down your bags.
Do I need to bring condoms?
You must always bring your condom, especially if you’re a girl. Why? Always assume that a stranger who you meet while traveling wants to hook up with you for sex and only sex – Don’t think someone will fall in love with you after 5 minutes of kissing and 2 minutes of talking. Most probably, you’ll meet these kinds of guys in a bar, and most probably he’ll be intoxicated.
