Australians prefer to travel over having sex

Australians prefer to travel over having sex.

A study has found that residents of Down Under prefer heading abroad on holiday than getting intimate under the sheets.

According to, 57 per cent said holidays got them most excited, compared to just 25 per cent for having sex. Exercising also featured a low percentage of seven per cent whilst a night out scored just six per cent.

And it appeared that women would prefer their holiday to having sex, with 69 per cent choosing that option, whilst it was slightly lower at 45 per cent for men.

The interest in holidays peaked for Australians aged 55 and over with 64 per cent, whilst those aged between 18 and 24 were at 46 per cent.

It was 45 to 54-year-olds that liked sex the most with 30 per cent choosing this compared to 20 percent for those aged 18 to 24.

Meanwhile, a previous study revealed holiday romances aren't as popular with the younger generation now, with a total of 70 per cent of the 18-35 year olds surveyed said they have never had a holiday romance whilst 50 per cent of respondents insist they don't even want one.

Their report reads: "Of course, it makes sense that in a pre-Tinder age, it was much more common to meet people in a bar or around the pool.

"But perhaps the death of the holiday romance is not such a bad thing, given the mischief that went on and potential heartbreak that previous generations experienced when on tour."
