How Much Do Travelers Actually Get It On?

The stats will surprise you. If it’s been a while, turns out there’s no better way to get back in the swing of things than by literally getting around. There’s nothing quite like the aphrodisiac of being in a new place.

HostelBookers recently surveyed over 11,000 people about their sex habits on a trip. For all intents and purposes, there’s some really interesting tidbits, such as the fact that over 48% of couples break up over the course of a trip. Though the majority of people break up—about 46%—right after a trip, a substantial 37% of people parted ways before the trip even began. The other 17% just make it awkward for everyone else. How’s that for a relationship litmus test?

However, as much as people break up, there’s still plenty of hooking up going on all around. About 52% of men and 41% of women admitted to having a one-night stand during a trip. A good 20% of these encounters eventually lead to something more substantial… as a previous three-year stand of mine can probably attest to.
