Screen Shot 2015-07-18 at 3.41.28 PMWondering how to keep up carefree intimacy with your partner, even if you aren’t on vacation? Keeping novelty alive appears to be the key. Very pleased to help out on this article by Sarah Jacobsson Purewal for Shape Magazine.

Vacation sex really is more satisfying and enjoyable, in part because of the external factors: You’re in a new place and you have no responsibilities (you’re usually not even cooking for yourself!), so you’re extra focused on the person you’re with. “Sex already triggers a cascade of hormones and brain chemicals that stimulate attachment and emotional desire,” says Washington D.C.-based clinical psychologist Alicia H. Clark. “Novelty further drives up the dopamine circuit in your brain, so it isn’t surprising that vacations are times when these things come together for a more satisfying sexual experience.”
