Australians are more excited about going on holiday than having sex, new research has revealed.
According to the study, conducted by Agoda, the giddy feeling of excitement when you’re going on a holiday is the ultimate buzz for most Australians (57 per cent), beating sex (25 per cent), exercising (seven per cent), a big night out (six per cent) and consuming a strawberry dipped in chocolate (five per cent).
For Aussie women, the thought of a night of passion pales into insignificance (13 per cent) when there is a holiday on the cards (69 per cent). While Aussie males also get a bigger buzz from holidays (45 per cent), 36 per cent are still committed to sex.
The study also found that 64 per cent of Aussies over 55 years old get their greatest buzz from a holiday, compared to 46 per cent of 18-to-24-year-olds.
Of those Aussies who live in NSW, Western Australia and Victoria, 59 per cent get their biggest buzz from the thought of a holiday.
The research is part of a campaign which sees Agoda giving Aussies the chance to win points to be redeemed against flights through its PointsMAX program.
