Airports and other controls      

For your comfort and safety, please be aware of potential security checks.


The prostheses are designed to feel realistic, and they are soft and subtle when flaccid. Still, an agent who is allowed to touch your genitals may notice that it is not biological.

To date no one has reported any problems when frisked, and many have gone through the process without problems.

Metal Detectors

There is no metal in the prostheses. There is nothing to set off a metal detector alarm.

Airplane Travel

Please be aware that routines, rules and regulations differ by country and airport. A lot of information is not supplied to the public.

If a security officer notices something non-biological on your body (your prosthesis) they may inspect it further. You may be required to show your prosthesis. You may be required to remove and allow inspection of your prosthesis.

If you do not comply with securities’ demands, you may not only loose your chance to fly, you may not be free to leave the airport.


Body Scanners

Many airports have separate security lines leading to the body scanner and to metal detectors. You may be able to choose your line.

In many countries the scanner is rarely used, in others it's standard process.

You may be selected for the body scanner.  People experience increased scrutiny by security based on their colour, name, country of origin, destination, citizenship, and gender representation etc.

If you must go through a body scanner, and are wearing a prosthesis, expect security to see it. If they see it, they might inspect it.

You may have the option to 'opt out' of the body scanner (people do so for a variety of reasons: radiation, privacy etc.).When you 'opt out', you will be frisked (see 'Frisking' here above).
