It’s dependent on the sleeping arrangements and what the vacation entails. It might be slightly less than when at home, but it happens plenty. If I am worn out from the day, I try to make sure he’s taken care of the next morning, or that he never goes longer than two days without. When in an RV with 5 other people, and just breathing seemed to rock the thing, it was less but even then there was a time we made use of the campgrounds “family” restroom/shower. He has made it work when in a hotel room with all the kids, while they slept.
There is definitely a difference between us having sex on a vacation, and me enjoying sex on a vacation 😉 I am often in a “maintenance mode”, and it’s more about his needs or wants.
We try for every night or every other night as long as we have our own room. Or when we’ve shared a bedroom we have a quick “nap” in the bedroom while the kids watch a show in the couch. We’ve also made use of a unisex shower while camping. Often most of the sex is quickies for him but if we can swing it we will have at least one longer session with an orgasm for me. If it’s a vacation without kids (my favorite but few and far between) it’s daily or multiple times a day with orgasms for both of us.
We will be hosting our sons & their families (incl 4 young grandkids) in a 3 BR cabin on a lake all of next week. DW has already told me “get it now (at home) while you can”…. but now that we are empty-nesters most of our trips are just the two of us with plenty of sex so I’m OK with next week.
We have always not had much sex on vacations while traveling or camping. But we also tend to overdo things like camping and walking, hiking, etc. At the end of an exhausting day who has energy but to sleep? But there are always those special times overlooking a lake or in another special place you just wouldn’t normally consider while on vacation to get down and go at it.
Before kids we had sex almost daily when on vacation at home or when we stayed at a motel. But nothing when we were camping. It was kind of hard to do something in a tent in the middle of a state park camping area. We did try to spend one night in a hotel or B&B for sex and a nice shower together. We did hand jobs on each other when at my grandparents.
After kids if we are alone and no kids, we may have a hand job for me or both of us just once during the vacation. However most of our vacations are now camping with the whole family in a pop up camper. There is no alone time.
I always envision lots of sex on vacations, especially when it’s just the two of us, but DH hates–and I really mean HATES–to travel, so he is usually feeling too uptight and stressed to do as much as I want. I keep hoping he will learn to value the romance of being alone with me and the opportunities to spend time focusing entirely on ML to the point where his angst will fade away, but so far no luck.
Depends on the vacation. We’re taking a cruise later this year…you better believe we’ll be having a lot of sex. Family reunion last Christmas, sharing a house with 7 other adults and a dozen and a half kids…not a lot. I have a hard time thinking sexy with steam coming out of my ears.
