They say sex sells, and when it comes to travel, that's especially true. Sex travel or "libertine tourism," as it's sometimes calledis a growing industry targeted at people who love to take their clothes off and get buckwild.

Skip navigation! My boyfriend Steve and I stood, naked, hands on our hips and stared hopelessly at our hire car, its back wheels buried into about a foot-and-a-half of sand. No amount of angry revving or sweary reversing had succeeded in dislodging it.
We naively believed it must have been because the place was secluded enough to go clothes-free without offending anyone. How nice to have such privacy, we thought. Photo: Peyton Weikert — Stocksy.
The idea of a nudist resort can be both alluring and terrifying. We all stumble upon clothing optional beaches from time to time, but to book a vacation that is all about the nudity is a different story. We decided to get the skinny and the not so skinny on what really goes down at a modern-day clothing-optional hotel.
