>Just in time for Valentine’s Day, Expedia has released a new study about travel and relationships. The Expedia Heat Index reveals that Americans are more likely to be intimate with a partner while on vacation, and that Paris, France, is the most romantic city in the world. More than 1000 Americans were asked a range of romance-related questions about which destinations they consider romantic and how often they have a love affair while traveling.
>The research concluded that the majority of couples like to get busy in hotel rooms, but a large number also preferred to get it on in the shower, at the beach, or in a hot tub. "When you are away from the norm, you don't necessarily have a prescription or ingrained routine for how to behave and what to feel," certified behavior analyst Jessica Stephans explained to Today. "And anonymity plays a big factor. When there is a smaller (or zero) chance of someone being able to identify you, you're more likely to behave in ways you typically would not otherwise. Maybe this means being a little louder, maybe this means being a little more risky… sex on the beach anyone?"
>Although the City of Lights was dubbed the most romantic city in the world, only four percent of Americans found cities, in general, to be a romantic vacation destination. The majority of people believe that beaches are the most romantic place to visit. Other cities that are considered love-inducing locations? Rome, Florence, and New York.
