Vacation booty is too amazing to have only once or twice a year. Here’s how to get the toe-curling punch of a destination hookup…even when you can’t afford the airfare.
GUILT TRIP - Forty per cent of women feel guilty about taking time off from work, compared to just 29 per cent of men!
Why does sex during your week off kick the ass of sex during any other time of the year? Researchers at the Kinsey Institute say one reason is that being on vacation improves a person’s mood, thereby increasing sexual desire and responsiveness, especially from women.
And away from the grind, your jay-oh-bee isn’t eating up all your time and stressing out – a major sexy-mood drainer. "People are so relaxed on vacation because they took care of their to-do lists before they left, says Ian Kerner, PhD, author of She Comes First. "They have no anxiety-producing obligations hanging over their heads."
Plus, the gorgeous scenery, exotic far, and new furniture to get frisky on are a pleasant shock to your senses. "When you’re exposed to something new, the novelty fuels desire," says Barbara Keesling, PhD, author of Good Girl’s Guide to Bad Girl Sex.
You don’t have to drop a ton of hard-earned cash to experience these perks. In fact, a recent study found that just planning a getaway leads to skyrocketed happiness levels. We got the scoop on how to inject a little aloh-ahhh into your mattress sessions – no Hawaiian beach necessary. Prep Like You Mean It
One or two weeks in advance, talk to your guy about when your vacation-stimulation day will be, then get ready. Pick an evening to wax, and set aside a weekend afternoon to shop for everything you’ll need to turn your 24-hour escape into pleasure-palooza. If you can, Kerner says, play hooky that day. "Vacation sex feels special because it occur at times you don’t usually have sex, like 3 p.m. on a Tuesday."
Devour Tropical Treats Your dinner menu should be luxe yet stress free, so look for a recipe you could imagine being served on the deck of your yacht as you circle the Seychelles, like shrimp ceviche with mango. Don’t forgot fruity cocktails – skip familiar flavours and pick up ingredients for frozen concoctions made with lychee or passion-fruit juice.
Use Cheap Tricks It takes more than food to create vacation ambience. You need chill music, flickering candles, beachy touches…. Start by downloading some hip-hop/reggae tunes (try anything by Michael Franti), and make inexpensive tweaks to your décor. A beaded curtain is trés Shangri-la. Spring for tiki mugs and you’ll hear tribal drumming whenever you take a sip.
Abuse Your Ottoman
On the big day, Keesling says to let your guy pick a hookup spot in your pad that’s never been christened. Afterward, enjoy erotic rubdowns with coconut-scented oil…then you pick the locale for round two. Who knows? With a little daiquiri buzz, you might just mistake the traffic outside for the sound of waves crashing on the shore. Sigh.
