Did you know investing in travel is almost better than investing in your retirement?
In December 2012, a study conducted by the U.S. Travel Association consisted of randomly dialing 1100 adults in relationships though not necessarily married. It ensured a census representative of the population (age, gender and region).
From the US Travel Association Press Release:
“Key research findings include:
- Couples prefer taking a short trip to receiving gifts – Nearly two-thirds of couples (63%) surveyed say a weekend getaway is more likely to spark romance than large or small gifts. Just one-third (36%) viewed receiving small gifts the same way, and only 15% rated getting big gifts like jewelry as important to improving romance.
- Traveling alone together sparks romance – More than eight in ten (83%) of those who travel as a couple say the romance is still alive in their relationship, and fully seven in ten (72%) of the couples surveyed believe traveling inspires romance.
- Couples who travel together report having a better sex life than those who don’t – Three-quarters (77%) of respondents who travel as a couple say that they have a good sex life, compared to 63% of couples who do not travel together. More than one in every four couples (28%) say their sex life improved after traveling together and of those, 40% say sex together is permanently better after travel.
- Couples who travel together have more time for intimacy and sex – A majority (59%) of couples say that being more intimate is an important reason to vacation together. Among couples that did not take a trip together in the past year, nearly one in four (23%) say they “do not have enough time for intimacy and sex.”
“Couples who take time to vacation alone together at least once each year report happier, healthier relationships overall compared to those who do not travel as couples,” says Pam Loeb, principal of Edge Research.”
How does this correlate with our sex drive transformation?
Travel gives you a new window, opens your mind to possibilities. Embracing new ideas and experiences can help you embrace a new idea about yourself. You are a hott, sexually charged creature. You are spicy.
Travel sparks spiciness due to the shared experiences and the chemical process in your brain of experiencing new things. Click here to see, “Sexual Variety and Libido,” for the science.
Traveling is an investment. Sure, it’s an investment of money and money is tight these days. But, it’s money well spent in the investment of decreased conflict in the arena of mismatched libidos. It’s an investment in your sexy self! It could be a better investment than your 401K. J

“Then I said to you, ‘Do not be in dread or afraid of them. The Lord your God who goes before you will himself fight for you, just as he did for you in Egypt before your eyes, and in the wilderness, where you have seen how the Lord your God carried you, as a man carries his son, all the way that you went until you came to this place.’ Yet, in spite of this word you did not believe the Lord your God, who went before you in the way to seek you out a place to pitch your tents, in fire by night and in the cloud by day, to show you by what way you should go,” Deuteronomy 1: 29-33.
(God is with you during your journey to improve your marital sexual intimacy!)
POSITIVE AFFIRMATION (verb: explore)
I explore my sexual nature with open heart. I explore the fun nature of sexual intimacy. I acknowledge that sexual intimacy with my husband is God ordained.
