You’ve heard about dark tourism and culinary travel… Brace yourself for the latest globetrotting trend; sexual wellness retreats.
People are having sex on holiday but what if we told you that perhaps you should be going on holiday to have sex? And no, this is not (just) some unconventional erotic rendezvous, but a much more indulgent and holistic affair, often focused on sexual literacy, intimacy, and exploration: sexual wellness retreats.
Because sex sells, it should come as no surprise that the rising travel trend of wellness retreats is expected to hit the $1.3 trillion mark in 2025. It is an industry that is expanding from its more kink-based origins into an arguably more tame realm, where even those self-describing as “vanilla” in the spectrum of sexual exploration can find a place to fit in through sexual therapy, coaching or erotic massages.
