Whips in luggage - Taiwan customs

We have a volunteer team traveling to Taiwan later this month. They plan to bring six whips to be used in a drama during Easter. One of the travelers is concerned that Taiwan customs will consider them weapons. They fear the whips will be confiscated and that they may even be arrested. I personally wouldn’t worry about it. What do you think?

Don’t know about whips, but try to bring in a pair of those kinky handcuffs you can find in sexy shop that don’t even lock and you’ll be waste two hours at the customs at Taoyuan airport.
