A new study reveals how people’s sexual attitudes and practices change when they travel.
Plus, Marriott’s CEO apparently thinks Starwood was a better program than Bonvoy (you’re shocked, I know).
Those are some of the day’s travel headlines I thought you, too, may find interesting.
The Vacationer just published the results of its “Travel Sex Survey.” The study’s purpose?
…to get the feeling people have toward sex while traveling. Do people have more sex on vacation than at home? Do people consider vacation sex more enjoyable? How many people have had a one-night stand on vacation? Are the sex standards people go by different when on vacation? On what types of public transport have people had sex?
Here are the quick numbers, though I recommend reading the entire post. It breaks numbers down into gender and age — and the results are fairly interesting.
- A third of participants think sex is better on vacation than it is at boring ole home.
- The number of travelers who’ve had one-night stands? 28.6%. More than half of those people are repeat participants.
- Just over 16% relax their standards when on vacation.
- Nearly a quarter have done The Deed on at least one form of transportation. Some folks got especially amorous on water taxis. Not kidding.
- Under a third of respondents have more sex on vacation than at home.
Does Marriott’s CEO Miss SPG Like We Do?
Gilbert Ott writes this about Marriott’s new CEO, Tony Capuano:
I now totally understand why press teams hold CEO media availability back…
For a start, he thinks customers have short memory, thinks it’s great that Starwood was a better program than the program he now de-facto leads, and doesn’t like how much hotel employees are paid. Talk about a week of soundbites.
Gil’s take references this interview that TPG’s Scott Mayerowitz conducted with Mr. Capuano.
