Well, the short answer would be one. The Magic Banana® is built to last, and it doesn’t have any mechanical or electrical parts that would be prone to failure – so you’re golden on that front too.
All that said, however, the longer answer to this question, in my opinion, would actually be three!
I have found that it’s great to keep one by the bed (or a favorite place to have partner sex), one near the shower (for a quick morning or evening pick-me-up) and one in my carry-on suitcase (even when I’m not traveling).
Here’s the thinking… a found moment for yourself can be a fleeting thing. It’s good to keep a Magic Banana® within arm’s reach. The bed and the shower probably feel really obvious – but the third might be a little more puzzling for you.
You’re probably thinking, if I’m traveling, why don’t I just take the one from my bedside or the shower? Well, if you’re anything like me, you’re a last minute packer. I am lucky if I manage to pack my underwear and make-up bag when I travel. Over the years, I found that I’d forget about the Magic Banana® during those harried bag-stuffing moments when I was running late for a flight – only to deeply regret it when I was stuck in a lonely hotel room with any combination of jet-lag, a stiff back, a head-cold, insomnia and noisy neighbors. In moments like these, some time with the Magic Banana® always seems to settle me ready for sleep – no matter where I am.
The other great thing is that because the Magic Banana® has no metal parts, it doesn’t call attention to itself in your bag as it goes through the carry-on scanners. The very last time I took a vibrator on a trip, the male security check-point officer succeeded in outing me in front of my conservative (though charming) older male boss. “Excuuuuse me. Does this belong to you?” the officer said holding it up for all the world to see. Never again, I vowed to myself. I now practice the better safe than sorry approach to traveling with a pleasure device – it is always with the Magic Banana®.
So there you go – three bananas seems to be my sweet spot. How many do YOU have in your life?
One banana, two banana, three banana, four… or as many as suits your fancy on your mission to explore!
