"Releasing our final survey results near Valentine's Day seemed appropriate," said President Richard Vanderlubbe. "In the dead of winter when sun vacations are on Canadians' minds, it's interesting to explore the motivations and needs for couples to get away, recharge and reconnect. And on this topic, no one really cares what men think," continued Vanderlubbe. "So we asked a thousand Canadian women some probing questions."

Fifty-three percent of women polled said that sex was better on vacation than at home, and 63% of younger women ages 18-34 agreed. When asked why, leading answers from those who said an annual vacation away was important to them included:

  • 28% said "less stress"

  • 27% said "more relaxing"

  • 16% said "more time" and "being in a romantic setting"

Additional findings:

  • 30% of women have planned vacation dates around a menstrual cycle

  • Younger respondents have more sex on vacation than at home (58%)

  • 29% of women said that sex on vacation is not better because there are so many other things to see and do
