Get A Room: Research Says Sex Is Better In A Hotel
There’s more than one reason why couples tend to enjoy a romantic getaway involving a hotel stay, and it’s probably not surprising that there’s sex involved.
But with science backing up the claim that a hotel setting improves lovemaking, there’s even more reason to get a room.
Research proves that being in a new place increases dopamine, the powerful neutrotransmitter molecule that controls senses of pleasure and excitement. (Other factors that contribute to domamine spikes include consuming chocolate or alcohol, listening to music, or using stimulants like cocaine.)
Second, checking into a hotel is synonymous with the experience of a vacation — and the expected escape from daily preoccupations — which is a certain boon when it comes to getting the mood right for improved intimacy.
A clean room, fresh sheets, and friendly anonymity can't hurt, either, providing a safe and ideal space for couples to get away from the normal distractions of home that could be dragging down their love lives.
