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

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

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.

2. Room service, please!
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.

4. Get bikini ready.
You probably wouldn't go on a beach vaca without toning up and waxing down there, so don't show up to your staycation unprepared either ... K? In all seriousness, we tend to pay extra-special attention to grooming and exercising before a romantic getaway. As a result, we feel more confident and can let our guards down more in bed. Getting your bod in tip-top shape as if you were prepping for a beach vacation, is key to steamier sex, even if you never leave your bedroom.

5. Take a roleplay getaway.
Escaping from reality is certainly a perk of vacation, but getting lost in a fantasy world with your partner is pretty darn sexy, too. Can't make it to Italy? Play out a Venetian dream: you be the passenger and he can be the gondolier. Vegas anyone? You be the dealer and let him be the high-roller. Can't decide where to role-vaca? Join the fantasy mile-high club — he's the frequent flyer and you're the flight attendant. The possibilities are endless ... and the best part? No jet lag! 

6. Take your time.
When you're on vacation — you have nothing to do and nowhere to be. Both freedom from commitments and the feeling of having endless time, empty the mind and lay the foundation to great sex. Get on "vacation time" in your regular life by clearing your schedule and slowing sex down. Enjoy the ride and don’t worry so much about when you're going to get there.
