5 Vacation Ideas For Cash-Strapped Couples

You don't have to travel far; you just have to travel together.
Want to reignite the sexual fire in your relationship? It may be time to hit the road.

3. Indulge in a spa staycation. If your favorite part of vacation is a spa treatment, you don't even have to leave home to relax and indulge. If you have kids, ask a friend or family member to take care of them for the day and then transform your home into a spa for two.

Put your phones away, turn off the computers and spend the day relaxing together. Clean the bathroom top to bottom. Put a small vase with a single gorgeous flower next to the sink. Draw a bath for your lover, scatter candles around the room and invite them to relax in the bath as you lovingly soap them, head to toe.

Kiss her and then leave her be, allowing her to fully relax in the warm water. Then meet your lover in the bedroom and give her a full body massage. The Pleasure Mechanics Couples Massage videos guide you stroke-by-stroke in an effective and relaxing massage. You can transition seamlessly into delicious lovemaking  and that would never happen in a real spa! Get a delicious meal delivered and end the day by eating in bed, making sure to save room for dessert!

4. Explore the great outdoors. Bring out your inner wild child with a romantic getaway to the great outdoors. Find a local state park and either camp out or rent a cabin for the weekend. Many state parks have great swimming holes and hiking trails so you can spend your days exploring nature and being invigorated by fresh air and sunlight.

Make dinner time easy by packing a cooler full of delicious food that requires no preparation, so you can build a campfire and then relax and dine on fresh fruit, charcuterie, cheeses, a rotisserie chicken and perhaps even a fancy treat for dessert! Enjoy cuddling in front of a roaring fire, stargazing and all of the wild noises of the great outdoors as you curl up in the tent together.

If you really want to feel free and frisky, hike into a remote part of the park and make love outside. If you are too shy to strip all the way down outdoors, simply go for a long make out session next to the river, pressed up against a tree or near a raging waterfall.

5. Shatter your comfort zone. Has your relationship settled into a rut? Shake things up by taking a romantic getaway and seize the opportunity to participate in an extreme sport. Go skydiving, bungee jumping or complete a ropes course together. The pure adrenaline rush will create a lasting bond of intimacy for you and your lover and many people find the rush to be highly erotic.

If you are afraid, even better! Facing your fears together will build trust and remind you of what it means to rely on one another. Complete your extreme weekend by trying something new in bed together, bringing the same courage and surrender that you used for the extreme sport to your love life.

Perhaps you want to explore erotic spanking for the first time! Being in a new location can make trying new sexual experiences easier, with a refreshing distance from your every day life you may find it easier to go beyond your comfort zones both in and out of bed.

The benefits of a romantic getaway can strengthen your relationship and refresh your intimacy. By taking the time to explore the world together, unplug from your digital life, experience new physical and intellectual stimulation and feeling the thrill of new experiences, you and your lover will emerge from a romantic getaway feeling closer, recharged and more intimate than before.

You don't have to go far from home or spend a lot of money to experience the benefits of a romantic getaway — it really is the effort and attention that counts. For over 100 ideas for new sexual experiences, check out The Erotic Bucket List and never have a dull weekend again!
