SAN FRANCISCO, May 19 (UPI) -- Almost three-quarters of U.S. adults ages 18-49 say sex is better while on vacation, a survey indicates.

Zoosk.com, the romantic social network, commissioned a survey of 1,529 U.S. adults ages 18-49 and found 22 percent said beach vacations were the most romantic type of getaway.

Nineteen percent said a trip to a romantic city was the most romantic vacation, 15 percent said a cruise, 15 percent said a trip to an exotic, far-flung locale, 9 percent said a stay at a bed and breakfast, 8 percent said a road trip and 5 percent said a camping excursion.

Vacations are supposed to be for relaxing, but traveling has its own set of worries for couples including:

-- 38 percent worry they and their partner will get on each other's nerves.

-- 34 percent worry about getting selected for "additional screening" at the airport.

-- 15 percent worry about having to share the bathroom with their partner during a vacation.

-- 15 percent worry about running out of things to talk about with their significant other while on vacation.

Eighty-six percent of Americans found it annoying when an airline changes their seat assignment, separating them from their partner, while 73 percent of women found their partner's snoring to be annoying and 59 percent of men found it annoying to be dragged along to shop during a vacation.

The survey of U.S. adults was conducted by VeraQuest Inc., May 1-May 3. The survey had a margin of error of 2.5 percentage points.
