Expedia has released its Heat Index study, a survey of 1,000 American adults on their mating and dating habits when they travel:

1) You can’t spell “vacation” without “action”
According to the study, 12 percent of Americans have engaged in a holiday fling with someone they met on vacation, with 22 percent saying they’d consider extending that vacation fling into an ongoing relationship. But more people, 32 percent, said they’d rather keep their fling a vacation memory, while 43 percent said the future of their new romance would depend on how far away the other person lived.

2) Sexy hospitality
Their jobs are to help make sure vacationers have a good time, but a lot of vacationers like to return the favor. Two percent of Americans have been intimate with “a hotel employee, flight attendant, or tour guide” they met on vacation. Four percent say they’ve “considered it.”

3) Are we friskier with our partners on vacation?
Some of us are. Twenty-eight percent of Americans said, yes, they were “more intimate” with a partner while on vacation. Thirty-nine percent said it “depends on the location.” We can only assume the remaining 33 percent like to limit their romantic activities to their own zip codes.

4) Get a room!
Many of you are doing just that. Sixty-five percent of Americans say “the hotel” is the most likely venue for their intimate vacation encounters. “The bathtub” was in second place at 23 percent (it edged out “hot tub”). Other favorite romantic settings: the beach (20 percent), a tent (17 percent), a balcony (10 percent), and a rental car (4 percent).
