Global HotelTonight survey reveals Aussies having more fifty shades of fun when snuggled up in hotels!

A global survey by HotelTonight, the leading mobile-only booking platform for high quality, last-minute hotel rooms, has today revealed that one in three Australians consider themselves to be a better lover when staying in a hotel (34.5%).

Furthermore, our proud nation has rated itself a respectable 7.5 out of 10 for their sexual prowess and on average adds 28 minutes to their sexy time when treating themselves to a night away. The survey also showed over 40% of Australians believe they go longer in the sack and make love an average 2.2 times more when they’re in a hotel room.

Not a bad effort some would think but it ranks low when you compare this to our Mexican counterparts who add almost an hour to their love making sessions, bolstering their sultry moves for an extra 49 minutes in hotels, with the Europeans (French, Spanish, Germans, Italians and Swedes) adding, on average, an extra 30 minutes to their hot hotel trysts.

The global survey asked over 2,200 people from 11 countries a series of questions to unlock the truths of how being in a hotel room can affect their love lives. All participants had made love in a hotel room in the past three years and other revelations from the global survey found some interesting insights:

  • 75% of Mexicans questioned thought they were more sexually adventurous in a hotel and add the most minutes of all nations to their sexy sessions (49 minutes), compared to the libido of the Spanish, averaging only an extra 22.3 minutes of sexy time.
  • Our Mexican counterparts scored themselves the highest marks out of ten, giving themselves an honourablescore of 8.7/10 for their sexual hotel exploits. The French were the most modest, rating themselves just 7/10.
  • Joint with the Mexicans, the Americans also get the highest extra sessions, gaining 2.8 times more sex than usual, just by being in a hotel.
  • Only 14% of Germans believed staying in a hotel improved their own performance, however 20% thought their partners improved when away from home.
  • Over 70% of Mexicans and Americans agreed that they became more sexually adventurous in hotels, whilst only 51% of Australians thought the same.

Interestingly, more than a third of the Aussies questioned (34.5%) class themselves as ‘better in a hotel’ but when asked if their partner is better, only 27.5% said yes. Aussies also believe new and exciting surroundings, no people around and being able to relax, are the main reasons their sexual techniques improve when away from home. Contradictory to what people might think, 25% of single Aussies say they are more sexually adventurous whilst in a hotel, with this figure more than doubling when you ask those in a relationship (54%).

“This survey has really brought out the fifty shades in all of us around the world and made for some interesting reading. Ultimately though, the common factor here is that hotels allow people to leave their inhibitions at the door, enjoy the freedom and take time out to enjoy the finer things in life,” said Regional Director for Asia Pacific Stefan Cordiner.

“As the survey highlights, all around the world, people feel that just being away from neighbours, children or housemates, as well as enjoying an exciting new surrounding and being able to relax in the comfort of a hotel room, is really key to making the magic happen. Whether you’ve been married for years, taking those first steps in a relationship, or simply need some alone time with your partner, I hope this survey inspires an act of spontaneity from couples across the globe,” said Cordiner.

Those looking to test out the theories should download the free HotelTonight app today, available for download from the App Store and suitable for iOS and Android devices from the Google Play Store.
