Seventy-one percent of timeshare owners claim to have more sex with their partner while on vacation, according to a recent survey by the American Resort Development Association.
ARDA recently conducted a survey of holidaymakers that takes a peek into whether or not couples are rekindling their romantic while on holiday. While time away may conjure up thoughts of greater intimacy, the survey found that more than half of the respondents were in fact not having more sex. The primary reason for this is lack of privacy (60 percent). The one exception was the timeshare owner—71 percent claim to have more sex with their partner while on vacation (versus 31 percent of non-owners).
“When people are vacationing with the family, they often stay together in one hotel room, and that makes it pretty difficult to celebrate the intimate, romantic part of a relationship,” said Howard Nusbaum, president and CEO of the ARDA. “Our owners don’t face this challenge, as one of the benefits of timeshare is the space it offers—separate bedrooms and plenty of private areas. Timeshare owners love that they can create memories with their families and children, and also have the space for romance while on vacation…the best of both worlds!”
When asked what would raise their intimacy levels while on vacation, a romantic setting/new environment was the number one reason cited (31 percent), while 29 percent felt that separate accommodations and greater privacy would enhance their experience.
