There are a lot of great reasons to travel, but a study from Expedia certainly has us ready to pack our bags: Traveling with your girl can increase your confidence and sex drive. Over fifty percent of Americans say they’re more likely to get frisky while away from home—and not just in the hotel bed. While traveling, 45 percent have gotten hot and heavy in the shower, 25 percent on a beach, 23 percent in a hot tub, 17 percent in an outdoor tent, 16 percent in a pool, and 10 percent on a balcony.
Why does getting away make people want to get down? “Traveling can help reduce the levels of the stress hormone cortisol. As stress and anxiety decreases, mood increases—bringing many, often unexpected, positive benefits in how we perceive ourselves, motivation and productivity, and our general outlook on life,” Linda Papadopoulos, a psychologist who worked with Expedia on the study, said in a statement.
