Ah, summer. A time to relax, enjoy the warm weather and, according to a new study, have more sex than any other time of the year.


Online sex toy retailer Lovehoney surveyed 2,000 people and about 25 percent said they have the most sex in the month of July, while 22 percent named August as their busiest month for getting busy. And the reason for those findings is hardly a surprise. Two-thirds of the couples surveyed admitted to having more sex while on vacation than while at home.

Moreover, 64 percent of respondents reported that they always have have sex while on vacation, which makes perfect sense considering how happy, stress free and sexy most people feel at that time.

The study also found that more passionate sex takes place while couples are away, with 1 out of 5 saying they enjoy spicing things up on vacation, a perfect segue into the 40 percent of couples who said they like to bring a sex toy along.

If that island getaway or beach trip isn’t in your future, you could always just improvise by setting up a tent in the backyard or getting a hotel room for a night or two.
