How To Have 'Vacation Sex' Without Ever Leaving Your Bedroom

How To Have 'Vacation Sex' Without Ever Leaving Your Bedroom

You don't need to leave the country to have an out-of-this-world love making sesh.

Let's be serious — vacation sex is simply superior. New surroundings, a break from the daily grind and maybe even a tropical breeze, are just a few of the elements that elevate the experience from mundane to mind-blowing. But, if skipping town isn't an option, here are 6 ways to have staycation sex right from the comfort of your own bedroom.

1. Fall off the map ... intentionally.
Minimal interruptions from friends, family and work is part of what makes vacation sex so hot. To simulate the experience, implement a wi-fiatus (that is, a hiatus from the internet, cell phones and other electronic devices). You'll also need to get into a vacation state of mind which means focus on the present — his smell, your body sensations and any verbal or nonverbal cues — not your endless to-do list.

Making love in a new place can boost dopamine, a sex chemical in your brain responsible for pleasure. If you can't make it to a hotel, bring the hotel to your bedroom. Upgrade to higher thread count sheets, lounge around in plush bathrobes, and splurge on room service ... er ... takeout.

3. Go on a scent-sation vacation.
Scent can be a powerful memory trigger. Harness the power of smell by incorporating exotic scents or fragrances that remind you of certain places. Does the taste of piña colada or strawberry daiquiri make you feel like you're on a Caribbean cruise? Try fruity-flavored condoms such as Durex's Tropical® Flavors. Does the smell of sunscreen or aloe remind you of the shore? Use coconut shampoo, spritz on this suntan lotion-scented fragrance or rub each other down with a soothing aloe-scented massage gel, such as this one by Durex. Keep reading...
