Got plans to finally head off on holiday?

You can look forward to getting frisky while you’re there.

We tend to have more adventurous sex when we’re on vacation, suggests a new survey from affairs site IllicitEncounters.

Nine out of ten of the 2,000 people surveyed reported having more adventurous sex while they’re away, with the top outside-of-the-box behaviour getting busy on the beach.

The sand and sea is the most popular location for outdoor passion while on holiday, followed by a location’s major beauty spot (39% of men and 35% of women say they’ve tried this).

A field comes in at third, followed by a park, then a swimming pool.

If you’re sensing a theme, you’re right – people really like to get sexual outdoors when they’re away from home.

Makes sense when you think about it – you’re far less likely to be spotted by someone you know when you’re abroad or up in the Lake District.

Most popular places to have outdoor sex on holiday:

  1. On a beach
  2. In a beauty spot
  3. In a field
  4. In a park
  5. In the pool
  6. Next to a lake or river
  7. In the sea
  8. Balcony
  9. In a plane loo (to join the Mile High Club)
  10. In a nightclub

But it’s not just in terms of location that we have more exciting sex while away from home.

The survey found that 82% of men and 78% of women find holidays an aphrodisiac and desire sex more frequently when they’re taking a break from normal life.

The three main reasons for this were listed as ‘I feel happier because the weather is nice’, ‘people are wearing less and that makes me horny’ and ‘I’m more likely to party when the sun out’.

Hotter weather abroad definitely plays a part – we know that as temperatures climb, people really do become hornier.

Add in increased relaxation and free time, and it’s no wonder that we’re having brilliant sex when we’re on holiday – and no surprise that July is the most popular month for getting frisky as a result.

The less positive side of this is that, according to the survey, people are more likely to cheat in the summer and on holiday.

Half of the respondents to the survey – 54% of men and 46% of women – said they have cheated on their partners while on a break in the sun, with the most popular events for straying as hen dos and stag dos.

Jessica Leoni, sex and relationship expert with IllicitEncounters.com, said: ‘We have just gone through the most miserable 16 months anyone can remember.

‘Of course, we are looking forward to a summer of loving with more adventurous sex, fun on the beach and lots of affairs.

‘Our data shows a surge in cheating which starts in July and runs right through the summer as we go out and party more.

‘When people in a relationship go away with their mates, they often see it as an opportunity to cheat.

‘That mentality of ‘what goes on tour stays on tour’ remains for both sexes. A fling in a foreign country feels much less harmless than seeing someone when you are at home.’
