I used to have this rule, NO sex on trips. Why? Because I always felt sticky, out of it and not in the mood. Then I realized that having sex is more fun than not having it! Some of you may like to go away together to fancy hotels, or spa weekends. I like to go camping and hiking (aka places where you work hard and sweat); because I know there are more people like me out there, this post is for you!
When you’re travelling as a couple, sex can either be something that adds to a trip or hinders it.
And the great thing about wilderness camping,
you finally get some privacy!
Rules For Sex Off The Beaten Path:
1. Hygiene: because keeping clean is the best way to avoid uncomfortable itching (and to put you both at ease); if you feel comfortable you will enjoy yourself a hell of a LOT more.
So, what not to do:
Do NOT have sex in rivers/pools/lakes and so on! (It will result with you getting things in places where you don’t want them).
Do NOT have sex on the ground, sand or grass… bring a blanket!
What you should do:
You SHOULD wash (down there), bring intimate intimate soap or wipes (just make sure you wash off the soap; no one wants a mouthful of that).
Make sure to wash and pee after (no one wants an infection as their trip souvenir). Don’t be lazy! (Even if it’s pouring with rain outside).
2. Be prepared; bring all the necessary provisions: condoms, wipes, soap, handcuffs, lube (and of course, a rubbish bag- in order to leave no trace).
Attach two sleeping bags and make sure your tent is big enough to allow movement.
It’s not like your’e spoiling the spontaneity of the moment, you both know that you’re going to be doing it, so plan ahead!
3. Talk about all the things above with each other, it’s perfectly fine to work out the technical details together.
Outback sex is an awful lot of fun and you shouldn’t let a few mosquito bites on the bum be a deterrent.
