New study suggests couples who travel together have better sex


The study by Travelocity found that 77% of couples who travel together say they have a good sex life, compared to the 63% who don’t travel together who reported similar sexual satisfaction.

It suggests that travelling as a couple may be the key to maintaining romance and sexual energy in a relationship. About 56% of couples agree that travel is important for retaining the spark in a relationship, but 31% of couples have never been on a romantic, couples-only getaway.

Talking to US Travel, Pam Leob, Principal of Edge Research, who conducted the telephone survey of 1 100 adults,  said couples who take time to vacation alone together at least once each year report happier, healthier relationships overall.

It is also reported that couples who travel together are significantly more satisfied with their relationships, enjoying better sex and improved romance long after the trip ends.

Senior research analyst at Edge Research Sarah Rodgers told USA Today that couples who travelled with just each other, rather than being with friends or other couples, are more likely to feel closer and communicate better after a trip.

Travelling allowed them to talk and reconnect and also share new experiences,” she was quoted as saying.
