Where to Have Sex

When I was a teenager, I used to babysit my cousins so my aunt and uncle could go out and have sex in the back of their minivan. I remember hanging out with my aunt while she prepared for one such outing. She lined the van’s backend with blankets and spritzed it with Calvin Klein’s Obsession.

Want More Intimacy? Travel Can Help

My partner and I just got back from a week-long trip to Cartagena, Colombia. It was our anniversary trip and our primary goal was to relax. We both have busy careers and, as of late, haven’t been connecting—emotionally or physically—as much as we would like. Our plan was to use this trip as a way to unwind but we ended up getting so much more than a little R and R.
