The U.S. Travel Association recently released a statement saying that couples who take regular trips together report increased satisfaction and romance. Whether you want to take the findings seriously or not, there is really no harm in taking a sexy trip with your sweetheart to reignite the flames of passion.
Of course, the whole point of taking a sex vacation with your partner is so that you can enjoy getting it on any time of the day. The depressing thing about real life is that we are far too busy conforming to the system that we barely have time to pay attention to the important things in life.
More often than not, careers thrive while relationships suffer. It’s next to impossible to have enough time and energy in one day to ace both.
Time off from the real world is desperately needed and what better way to amp up your love life than by indulging in a sexy couple’s retreat? You will be surprised at how much a vacation focused on sex can benefit your love life. [Read: Keep the intimacy alive with these 12 foolproof tips!]
Planning a trip away is not as difficult as you think. Whether you decide to keep it local or choose to head off to an exotic destination, make sure that you plan it with your partner so that both your opinions count. When researching a location to head to, go with somewhere that will offer you peace and tranquility.
A few considerations for choosing your destination
Not all vacation spots are ideal for a sex vacation. Some places have too many distractions, while others don’t really have the right mood in the place. Here are the things you should keep in mind when making your pick.
#1 Avoid busy spots. Do not leave your bustling hometown of Chicago to spend your sex vacation in New York. Beach and mountain vacations are perfect for a couple’s retreat as it will offer both of you the chance to focus on each other and not be distracted by all the exhausting shopping and mandatory sightseeing that comes with a big-city vacation.
#2 Ensure that the place is NOT child-friendly. Stay away from the myriad of Club Med and chain hotel options and opt for sexy boutique hotels instead. There are many beautiful resorts peppered around the world that reserve vast sections of the hotel for guests with no kids. Some do not even allow children under the age of 12 on the premises. Even if you have to pay a little more, just do it. You do not want your sexy beach time ruined by a bunch of wailing kids.
#3 Inform the resort beforehand. For that added touch of romance, call the resort up once you have made a booking and inform them that you are on your second honeymoon. Most top notch places will romanticize the trip to include rose petals in the tub, a bottle of welcome champagne and other lovely details that will be sure to give your sex vacation a nudge in the right direction.
#4 Finally remember to leave the kids at home! The last thing you want is to have to deal with a couple of hungry and cranky 4-year-olds whilst nursing a raging hangover from the three bottles of pink champagne you polished off in the tub together last night. Once you have all that in the bag, kick back and enjoy your sex-fueled trip.
10 benefits of going on a romantic sex vacation
If you’re wondering exactly why a sex vacation would be good for your relationship, here are the top 10 benefits it will give you.
#1 Refresh your sex life. The whole point of taking a sex vacation is, of course, to indulge in a myriad of sexual activities with your partner. There is no denying that most long term couples complain of having a sex life that dwindles to nonexistence after a couple of years. Life and age tend to get in the way of lust and passion, not to mention banging the same person day in and day out for years on end will probably lessen the spiciness of an active sex life.
Take the chance to act and feel like teens again on this sexual escapade. Experiment with positions, costumes, toys, body parts, locations and anything else you can think of. You will love this refreshing spin on your conventional sex life.
#2 Rediscover each other. This applies to rediscovering your partner, both mentally and physically. Savor every moment you have with your loved one whether it’s getting it on between the sheets or enjoying cheerful banter over a candlelight dinner.
Spending time together somewhere new will be sure to invigorate the dullness of a long term relationship, hence the importance of taking a holiday that focuses on the two of you. [Read: 10 Ways to reignite the spark in your relationship]
#3 Better communication. The longer you’ve been with your partner, the more likely you will find that you converse less now than when you first met. This is not necessarily a bad thing. When you’ve been with someone for many years, they somehow become an inherent part of you. More often than not, there is no need to put into words how you feel as your partner will find it in their second nature to just know.
Plus, years together have probably taught you all that you need to know about each other and there is nothing new left to discover. As sweet as this is, you need to start speaking up and communicating more. Taking a sexual holiday together will give you the chance to do just that. Improve on your communication by speaking more, touching more, and playing more. [Read: 12 things couples can talk about to get even closer]
#4 A new adventure together. A sex vacation is certainly an adventure to be thoroughly enjoyed and devoured with your partner. By partaking in this delightful sexual escapade, you are chalking up points for your personal sexual history book. Doing this new and fun activity together will give you and your loved one the chance to relive the much yearned for days of your youth when you were madly and passionately in love with each other.
#5 Quality time alone. The daily grind is not a recipe for passion and sexual intrigue. Early mornings, bad traffic, loud bosses, stressful projects, whiny kids, and a messy home are not delicious ingredients for a sexed up time. You need to spend some time away from it all if you want to rejuvenate your relationship with your partner.
By focusing on rebuilding intimacy, you will recreate the closeness that you felt with your partner during the early stages of the relationship where sex, great conversation and excitement dominated everything. You will be surprised at how important quality time alone is for a couple.
#6 Heighten your senses. When you remove all the icky bits that make reality what it is, you are left with a refreshing calmness unlike any other. One can liken it to an escape of sorts. Breathe in the crisp mountain air of the Alps, explore the underwater world from your water chalet in the Maldives and swim naked under the stars in your private Balinese pool.
Your senses will be heightened tenfold when you have nothing else to worry about except for you and your partner having a good time together. This will increase your libido and ensure that you have a smooth sailing sex-fueled trip together. [Read: Use your senses to make your lovemaking sexier]
#7 Relaxed atmosphere. A sexual vacation will give both of you the chance to bask in a relaxed atmosphere, allowing both parties to set aside differences while focusing on each other and having a good time.
Most of the time, couples tend to leave petty disagreements and fights behind the moment they arrive at their dream holiday destination. Everyone knows that there is really is no point in ruining a trip that you have already splurged thousands on, so both of you will have fun even if it is by default.
#8 Focus on ‘us.’ The whole point of taking a sex vacation is so you can flirt with your significant other. Shower your loved one with a hundred percent of your attention during your beautiful holiday together. You will connect not just on a physical level, but on a mental and spiritual one as well. This will give both of you the chance to focus on ‘us.’
#9 Positive change. When you swap your negative and stressful environment out for one that is calm and positive, it will affect every aspect of your life including your relationship with your partner. When you are in a calm and beautiful place with nothing on your mind but sex and connecting with your loved one, you will feel more open and in tune with each other. This invites positivity that will follow you all the way home.
#10 Revitalize playtime. The final benefit to heading off on a sex vacation with your partner is that the trip will undoubtedly revitalize playtime. You no longer have to keep it down so you don’t wake the kids. You no longer have to worry about semen getting on the sheets. You no longer have to worry about making love on your boring, squeaky bed.
Playtime will be rejuvenated and given a brand new look and feel. This is perfect for couples who have been too caught up in daily life that they forget to keep things romantic and sexual with their partner. [Read: 10 naughty games to play on your sex vacation]

As long as you and your partner promise to focus on each other throughout the trip, you will find that your sex vacation will pay itself off in the form of plenty of sex, peace, laughter and new memories made together.
