Have you ever noticed yourself feeling hornier than usual when you travel? If so, you're not alone. Being away from home seems to put a lot of people in the mood for sex. So why is that? The answer is actually surprisingly complex. A whole host of factors change when we go on vacation or take a trip and--together--they have the potential to create far more opportunities for sexual desire and arousal to set in than we typically experience at home. So let's talk about travel horniness!

In this episode, I discuss the biological, psychological, and social factors that underlie this phenomenon, including:

How many people fantasize about sex and travel, such as having sex on the beach, in an airplane, or in a hotel room.
How engaging in novel, non-sexual activities on vacation can amplify sexual arousal.
How our mindset changes when we escape our home environment.
How substance use changes when we're on vacation.
How the people we travel with influences our sexual behavior.
Why exposure to more sunlight on vacation can make us hornier.

In addition to exploring the psychology behind travel horniness, I discuss my recent visit to the Icelandic penis museum, which is a fascinating place. If you thought human penises were diverse in size and shape, you haven't seen anything yet!
