Sex in National Parks: Where People Are Having It Most

It seems that nature lovers are doing more than admiring nature at our national parks, at least according to a press release survey from which claims that 1 in 5 travelers have enjoyed sex on America’s public lands. Zion National Park was crowned the top place where couples have done more than explore nature based on the survey of 8,500 traveling singles.

Brandon Wade, Founder & CEO of the website that conducted the survey notes in the press release that “Mother Nature inspires people to shed their inhibitions and give in to their primal urges. At a National Park, there are lots of secluded areas off the beaten path, and it wouldn’t be too difficult to find a quiet, romantic spot for two people to be alone together.”

While the one in five number may at first appear rather high, it’s important to remember that there are some national parks that have hotel lodging and camping within the park. Below are the top 10 parks where people are having sex according to the survey:

American Samoa National Park Photos

I’m hoping to make it to all the National Parks over the next few years. While I know about the vast majority of them, there are a few that I have no idea what they may look like. One of these is American Samoa National Park, but after seeing some of the photos taken at American Samoa, I can’t wait to eventually get there:

If you have ever been to American Samoa National Park and have taken photos there, we’d love for you to share them (and your experience at the park) with us!
