“I’m on the road quite a bit and it’s lonely on the road. So sometimes you have to bring things along with you that can ease your loneliness,” the actress explained. “For some people, it’s a teddy bear. For other people, it’s a dog. For others, like myself, it’s a vibrator.”

She revealed the sex toy was “compact” before going into more detail. “I was going through TSA and they scanned my bag and targeted my bag as one that needed to be checked. I was like ‘uh oh.’ I knew it would get flagged because I put it somewhere I don’t normally put it and I was like this is gonna go left,” the Insecure star said.

“In the moment I was like, ‘What’s gonna happen here because I don’t wanna take this L,” she said. Amanda then revealed “I told him, ‘What’s about to happen is you’re going to open this bag and there’s going to be a sex toy in that bag. Are you ready for that?’ I just told him. I had to flip the awkward! Because now, I’m not awkward anymore, because I made him awkward. I said, ‘You got a glove?’ He gave my bag and I went on my way.”
