A dried deer penis, bootleg "Lost" DVDs, a pitcher of salami, bongs, cow dung toothpaste, guinea pig meat, counterfeit viagra…just a few of the objects seized over five days at JFK Airport. Artist Taryn Simon photographed them all for her upcoming book and exhibition "Contraband." You can check out some of the photos as you answer the burning question "What shouldn’t I pack?" in the The New York Times Magazine.
