There's no better time to try out some hot new sex positions than during summertime — especially if you're lucky enough to have a romantic vacation planned. According to a recent study by online sex toy retailer Lovehoney, couples have more sex in July and August (aka the peak summer months) than any other time of year, and it's kind of a no-brainer why. Summer is a time for our normally over-saturated minds to relax a bit and enter "vacation mode," meaning it's the perfect time to de-stress by having some much-needed intimate time with your partner. And going on a vacation together is the perfect opportunity to take your sex life to the next level and try some new things in bed (especially if that bed happens to be located in a romantic, luxurious hotel room).
"Taking sex out of the dull and routine setting such as one's bedroom at home, creates a new scenario, which is a very positive stimulus for the brain," Dr. Svetlana Kogan, life coach and holistic mind-body doctor, tells Bustle. "In response, the body secretes more endorphins, adrenaline, and dopamine to this new adventurous setting."
Vacation sex can be incredibly hot, because it provides you and your partner with a totally different setting than you're used to. When you're on vacation, you can take as much time as you want to really explore each other's bodies and focus on pleasuring each other in new and exciting ways. Here are seven hot sex positions to try out next time your summer vacation plans take you and your partner to a swanky hotel (though you can try them anywhere you please, of course).
