" Some tourist experiences offer a very unique social context that is often very different from everyday life, researchers noted."
Sydney, Aug 20 - For some female tourists, travel is like finding their lost sexual liberty - in one night stands - and feel like a man, says a fascinating study.

According to a researcher from University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, some women feel free from sexual double standards at home and are ready for no-strings-attached sexual encounters.

While for some, sexual activity has to be related to feelings and some degree of attachment, said Liza Berdychevsky, an assistant professor in the department of recreation, sport and tourism.

She, along with Heather Gibson from University of Florida and Yaniv Poria of Ben-Gurion University of the Negev in Israel, conducted in-depth interviews with 34 US and Israeli women for her study.

She found that some tourist destinations and experiences promote an altered sense of reality... while minimising perceptions of risk and long-term consequences, said a report in Sydney Morning Herald.

Some tourist experiences offer a very unique social context that is often very different from everyday life, researchers noted.

According to Berdychevsky, We should address that sense of invincibility that young people tend to have and make them understand that not everything that happens on vacation will stay there.
