Love, Sex

Gives a whole new meaning to "pitching a tent."

Couples can often fall into a rut. You both do the same things over and over, and even the sex is starting to get stale. What should you do?

Pitch a tent! Nope, we're not talking about in your man's pants. We mean a literal tent. 

According to a survey from tent company OLPRO, couples who camp together have more sex while camping and afterwards.

The survey included 500 couples between the ages 25 and 50 who just went on a camping trip. A good 90 percent of them said they had more sex out in the wilderness than they would if they skipped the trip.

So what's getting the couples hot while they're away?

Well, 45 percent said having less distractions is what really helped them focus on each other, 30 percent said camping made them more carefree, and 9 percent claim camping brought them together closer physically.

Psychologist Barbara Bishop also agrees that camping could be very good for a couple's sex life. "It gives us the opportunity to reconnect with our partners and recharge our relationships in a very meaningful way," explains Bishop to Daily Mail.

"We rediscover our primal selves when we're close to nature, but there is also that added frission of knowing just a thin layer of canvas shields us from the outside world."

So this summer, plan on taking a camping trip if you really want to bond.
