Show Notes

We are talking all things vacations today. Vacation sex, traveling with toys, and how to have the most fun ever.

Who is Jazmin?
Jazmin never shows up to the party empty-handed or without her vibrator in her purse. She is the go-to person in her group of friends to plan the next happy hour, bachelorette, or weekend getaway. Not only is she obsessed with Travel but she loves helping other women get confident with talking about sex.  Jazmin is the founder of FeMAVEN Getaways, she believes that kale and yoga don't belong on every vacation! Her modern girl's getaways are centered around culture, connection, and having a shit ton of fun!

How did FeMAVEN Getaways start?
She worked for a really cool company in Australia that hosted women’s events that were very business oriented, so she decided she needed to bring this idea to something she’s passionate about, travel. So during the pandemic, she decided to build her own business. She really believes that sometimes the best food for our soul is just having fun.

What does she feel like are the biggest holdbacks keeping women from going on retreats?
The biggest one she sees is that a lot of women don’t feel comfortable spending money on themselves. Another big barrier is a lot of women worried about being shy, or if they’ll get along with all the other women. But as long as you identify as female, and you have a good time, that’s all Jazmin cares about. It doesn’t matter where you come from or what you look like.

Is it refreshing for women to be with women they don’t know?
Yeah, absolutely. Sometimes we can be more ourselves with people we don’t know. A lot of the girls that come have maybe moved on from their old friends groups, or are new to an area and don’t know anyone. There’s so much magic and power in taking your makeup off, putting on pajamas, having a few glasses of wine and really developing pure connections.

How do you make sure it’s safe to hook up on vacation?
She definitely has a buddy system in place. You make sure you have the person’s phone number, see their ID and know their address. But just because you’re in a different country, doesn’t mean the men are more dangerous, take the same precautions you would at home. You just need to be safe with it, and practice safe sex, whatever that means to you.

How do you travel with vibrators?
Tiny bullets are obviously the easiest to bring. She also has a toy bag that she travels with with things like restraints for the bed. She tries not to pack too much because if you lose it, they can be expensive. But you’re on vacation, why not have as much fun as you can? It’s okay to have your vibrator, and if airport security says anything, just hold your head high and say “Yep, that’s my vibrator!”. Make sure your toys are charged before you go, and if you have a battery operated one, take the batteries out until you get to your destination. If you have a toy that has a lithium battery, you’re supposed to take it on as a carry on and not in your checked bag.

What are some good sex related destinations?
Her favorite strip clubs have been in Scottsdale AZ, there’s also some great ones in Las Vegas NV. Obviously for sex stores it’s hard to beat Amsterdam, they've got big ones, they’ve got small ones, they’re just everywhere. The Museum of Sex in NYC is definitely a must-go place, if you’re in the area.

We only get one life you’ve gotta enjoy every moment and stop worrying about what other people think.
