Couples Who Camp Together Have Better Sex (and More Of It)

Sometimes sex lives can become more habitual than sensual. If your sex life feels like work, you may just need a vacation.

According to new research, the best way to break your habitual lack of satisfaction is to escape to the great outdoors and spend time in a beat up tent with your lover.

Camping provides a wide number of benefits, but most surprisingly is that it can actually drastically improve your sexual activity.

A study by OLPRO involving 500 couples who went camping found that 80 per cent of couples said that their sex life increased by double, and over 85 per cent said that less distractions and decreased stress led to a better time between the sheets.

The main cause of the lacking sexual satisfaction is that stress is a sure-fire-way to kill your sex life. The pressure of juggling your busy work with family and children without time for yourself can increase your cortisol levels and suppresses your sex hormones, according to Huffington Post.

Not only does stress affect sex life, but frequency of intercourse is strongly linked to how satisfied couples are with their relationship. In a study conducted by PubMed, about 4,000 men and women were asked whether they were satisfied with the frequency of their sex lives and 54 per cent of men, and 42 per cent of women were unfulfilled.

Camping allows you to escape the clutches of your working life and to reconnect with your wild side. This is proven to decrease stress, improve relationship-satisfaction, and improve your sex life.


Other studies have shown that there’s a chemical process that the body undergoes when it’s in a natural environment. Even office spaces with a naturalistic setting can have a mental effect on how you internally feel.

By going on a camping trip surrounded by nature, it can help couples focus on what really matters: your relationship, according to psychologist Barbara Bishop.
