Would you swap wine for sex?

Well, half of you said 'yes'
Some might say sex AND wine were the perfect combination
​IN his continuing search for the more weird, wacky and wondrous in the world of travel, David Ellis says a survey by Sheraton Hotels & Resorts has found that after a long day in the office or while travelling, the majority of people would prefer a glass of good wine to most other things – including even hopping into bed with their partner.

The survey that was conducted in the US, Germany, China, Argentina and China found nearly half of those asked – an amazing 48 per cent – said they'd make the wine option #1 as a means of unwinding.

As well, 29 per cent said they'd give up their smartphone for a day in return for a top wine at the end of a busy day, 23 per cent their social media account for a week, and while travelling 23 per cent would give up use of their hotel's spa for that glass of wine. Another 12 per cent said the gym.

And possibly most surprising of all, 23 per cent would give up sex with their partner for a week, in exchange for a glass of premium wine after a long day.

The hotel group undertook the survey as part of its premium wine program, Sheraton Social Hour, that takes a regular look into global traveller guests' wine drinking habits, taste preferences, spending and social influences.
