Summer brings high temperatures, vacation, leisure time, and a lot of adventures. Many young Europeans save their summer months to travel around, make road trips, in groups or alone, and just enjoy the good weather and the new people they meet along the way. The motto is to live life to the fullest, especially before classes start in September or before your boss 'WhatsApps' you…

And how can you do this? How can you enjoy your life without the prospect of flirting, kissing or… hot steamy sex? We have a tip: let your hormones roll out, let dopamine control your body, and free your testosterone and endorphins for ultimate physical pleasure. The second step is to take a look at our guide, with some tips and tricks of places and spots to go in Europe to have a truly sexy summer time in the old continent.

Spain

Spain has been for many decades the top destination for many Europeans, particularly those who are looking for good weather and cheap prices. But certainly Spain has more to offer than just nice beaches, great music and wild parties where dangerously ravishing people turn to gaze at you while sipping some mojitos or local beer. Indeed, Spain has a lot of great products...

LGBTQ

Freddy Mercury and Montserrat Caballe sang about the wonders of Barcelona long time before E&M was created, but we are still humbly on time to attest their passion: Barcelona is great, even more so if you're gay!

So if you happen to be around, or if you're just now planning your last minute trip, don't forget to include the L'Eixample (or gayxample), one of the most popular gay districts in the city, or the gay friendly town of Sitges, 35 km from Barcelona, with a lot of gay bars and gay-friendly accommodation.

Just as tolerant, the Spanish capital Madrid is a must-go place if you're looking for gay love in the Iberian Peninsula. Visit the 'Barrio de Chueca' and attend the gay parade 'Orgullo Madrid' now in July, one of the biggest and most popular parades in Europe, with a lot of parties on the side.

1,700 km away but still in Spain lies the largest gay resort in the world: the 'Playa del Ingles', in Gran Canaria. So if you're gay or lesbian and you're looking for some excitement, Spain is definitely the place to be this summer!

Nudism

Is there a better way to spend summer than naked? Or lying comfortably on the beach or in the countryside, feeling more confident about your body? Of course not, and as Baby had already reported on issue 10, nudism is actually very liberating. Check out the map below and see the best nudist locations in Spain (and why not Portugal). And don't worry, at the end of the article you'll have a link to this map.

Some of the nudist locations you can find in Spain (and Portugal). You can check the map here.

There are plenty of nudist spots there, not only by the beach, but also in the middle of the country. We recommend visiting also the Galician coast, with some less touristy spots for nudists. Don't forget though, nudism doesn't equal sex, and for many people the image of someone naked can turn out to be less sexy than a beautiful and mysteriously dressed body.

Culture

In Las Ramblas, one of the most famous spots in Barcelona, you'll find one of the most famous erotic museums in the world, the 'Museu de L'Erótica', with an exhibition on the Kamasutra Hindu, the Marquis de Sade and pornographic comic strips.

When in Rome, do as the Romans do - so when in Spain, try to watch an Almodóvar film. The director is one of the symbols of the Spanish counter culture movement 'La movida', and his films are a mix of Spanish drama, irreverence, love and humour, with extravagant characters that often just wish to be sexually liberated.
