Living Abroad in South Korea-Can I still order toys?

Ms. Paprika Ms. Paprika
Hi EF,
I'm moving to South Korea and was wondering if I could still receive toys from your site, both for the review program and if I place a paid order. I've heard that Korea will not allow that they consider "obscene" and I think a vibrator or dildo might be considered such.
Thanks!

You probably don't need to worry about that. Koreans loved to order their sex toys online. South Korea's suppose to be the world's 2nd largest sex toy manufacturer, Zini is actually a Korean brand. Even if you can't purchase from Eden, you can still get a lot of toys from their local websites.

When I went to south korea, they almost took my spin mag from my carry on at customs. I guess girls in swimsuits posing with what ever band it was was almost too obscene for them. But on the other hand, boys that looked to be 8-10 years old where buying liquor at the corner market. go figure right!

If you are going to be there for an extended stay, I would look for local shops. Brick and mortar, or online. You might be safer. I would hate for you to order something, get it shipped, and have it go "missing" because of what it is.

"Go Missing" being the best case scenario.

Definitely check out the rules of the country, maybe a website or embassy or something.

Be cautious and research the law. I've heard all sorts of horror stories about people getting in legal trouble in Japan for asthma inhalers and all sorts of innocuous things and I imagine that South Korea could have legal hang-ups too. Just because it's sold locally doesn't mean they'll accept it in the mail.

There is a lot of hypocrisy in the laws of many countries that have much more obscene things that America doesn't allow. You can't necessary extrapolate that just because X is allowed, Y should be legal too.

Wow...thanks everyone. I'm in Korea on a one year contract, but I've definitely noticed that my area is very conservative. (I got chewed out for showing my shoulders because I was wearing a tank top) If there are brick and mortar sex shops, I haven't found them yet in the big cities-not even Seoul!

I'll have to find some online sex shops based in Korea...I definitely think that if I got a package sent to my location it'd be confiscated at best, or I could lose my job at worst.
