Good news, travel addicts! According to research conducted by by the U.S. Travel Association, couples who travel together report to having better sex and feeling more content in their relationships. The survey also found:
Travel = romance – More than eight in ten (83%) of the travel-loving couples surveyed categorized their relationships as ‘romantic’, and seven in ten (72%) of the couples believe traveling helps to keep the romance alive.
Men and women would rather receive a weekend getaway than presents – 63% of couples polled claimed a short trip would inspire more romantic feelings towards their partner than receiving a gift, even a big gift like jewelry.
Traveling couples have better sex lives than stay-at-homers. 77% of couples who travel together reported to having satisfying sex lives. That number was less – 63% – for couples who do not travel together. What’s more, 28% of couples polled said their sex lives had improved after returning home from a trip; a large percentage of which claimed to have seen permanent improvements.
The takeaway? Traveling strengthens bonds, adds excitement and variety to life and provides couples with the time and space for intimacy, so everyone should do more of it!
Haven’t got a guy or gal of your own yet? Don’t worry. Studies have also shown that traveling makes you ‘sexier’ and more appealing to potential mates.
