Tourism is all about experience, adventure and pleasure for the senses. And it is indeed pleasure that's now driving one of the upcoming tourism sectors across the globe.
Tourism is all about experience, adventure and pleasure for the senses. And it is indeed pleasure that's now driving one of the upcoming tourism sectors across the globe.
While tourists are now looking for innovative, tailor-made experiences when travelling, what is gaining increasing popularity over and above regular adventures is what has been termed as 'naughty travel'.
 
A recent report by Forbes talks about how 'naughty journeys' or 'libertine tourism' is finding its niche in the industry.
 
Tourism entails an idea of free-spirit, of romance--and what can be better than celebrating it the 'libertine' way? So libertine experiences are all about the joyful pleasures of the body, and that is exactly what some of the destinations are capitalising on.
 
Libertine tourism is surely related to sexual pleasures for tourists, but is different from sex tourism--it is not related to prostitution or illegal activities.
 
The sector is emerging as a full-fledged industry that is roping in a lot of suppliers like cruise, hotels, transport industry and travel agencies through which libertines can pay large sums to mix tourist explorations with sexual adventures. The travel packages may include long stays, weekends or just a momentary evening of sexual desire.
 
For instance, a ship of the Royal Caribbean cruise line, Azmara Quest once offered "Cruise Desire" to roughly 690 passengers on board with "sensual, erotic games and themed evenings with hot performances".
 
France has now emerged as a major hotspot for libertine tourism. A survey conducted in 2014 suggests that a large section of the population between the age group of 18 to 69 have the tendency to transgress the conventional boundaries of conjugal sexual relationships.
 
The study by Ifop also revealed that over 2 million people connect to libertine sites in France. In fact, libertine travel amounts to nearly 1.2 billion euros annually.
 
Doing justice to its name, libertine tourism is not about a hush-hush satiation of sexual needs behind closed doors but about indulging collectively outside it too. Cap D'Agde, a place in south of France, is one of the prominent spots that offers outdoor space where couples engage in flirting and sex in public, giving rise to 'beach libertine'.
 
The destination also offers formal initiation methods involving Tantra to arouse sexual passion among partners.
 
The libertine journey is undoubtedly luring a lot of free-thinkers, hedonists or libertines who are lovers of life beyond morality and want to give travel a new meaning altogether.
