To think sex on holiday is another thing to worry about.

According to the Times today, 74% of couples have sex every other day on holiday, and 50% 10 times in a seven day holiday.

There's something else to worry about ;)

I guess they can't all be staying in static caravans with in-laws though..

These statistics must be why we've all ended up with kids in the first place, bloody holidays.

Maqueen , well i managed to injure my back a few days in... getting into a chair. No excuse before then. Didn't happen on wedding night either. Although that's quite normal nowadays.


That let 'D'H off the hook... he didn't need to bother/make the effort/be loving on our honeymoon
(set the course for the next 10 years until i LeftTB)

I'm so unshagged it unfair. Is unshagged even a term???!!!

Oh bless you. You are well rid, Sweetie.

I have drunken vague memories of Bodrum, 1993, and DH and I winning a Dirty Dancing competition - all well and good, except DH put his back out and could barely move for the rest of the holiday Hmm

Oh dear. This isn't bringing back memories of the time MIL was staying in the next room & I fell out of bed with an almighty crash one night. No.. not at all

Wouldn't anyone else feel weird having sex in someone elses bed though?
Especially a hotel bed that god knows how many people have had their fun in?
When not all of them change the sheets between every guest.....

This is one of the reasons we rent private villas/cottages on holiday. No way am I enduring a sex free holiday. Tent sex is deeply unpleasant.

Forwards sorry to hear about your unshaggedness. My exH managed to disguise the fact he was an asexual alcoholic until our wedding night and our honeymoon was crap. I was already pg by then, so felt totally trapped and couldn't even drink. Took me 7 years to leave him.

By contrast, DP is a full-on sex god and I am eternally grateful for him. I'm sure there's one out there for you too.

We have been successful in a tent with kids in the next room blush

I've had sex in a tent with my parents as a teen- and they didn't even know I was sexually active yet! 😳

The only time we have even got close to those statistics is on our honeymoon, 40 years ago. The novelty soon wore off! Grin

Me and DH didn't have sex on our honeymoon, but tbf it was one night in a hotel with our 3 month old in the room with us and i was still 'not right' after all the tearing/stitches. And of course there was dh vomiting half the night (those celebration sambuka shots were a bad idea) so violently he burst the blood vessels in both his eyes. ahhh good times.

Are these holidays where the couples actually go together? was it specific? Hmm

Threads like this always make me question whether me and DP are having enough sex! Usually on holiday if the kids are there it's once or twice in the week and for a weekend away just together we usually manage it a couple of times. The first time is amazing and the second time is more of a "well we better make the most of our time alone" type thing!!

When we stay in hotels it's either two rooms so we each have 2DC or a family room where we are all in together, no chance of anything going on.

Even on our honeymoon at Disneyland Paris we had two hotel rooms with a door in between (we did the deed before going on holiday with 4DC)

Tell you what, cystitis cramps your style in that department. If you're uncomfortably aware that you've had more alcohol than water over the last day or two and the treaments are hard to get hold of, you're not so keen to risk it.
