Whoa, Momma!

It's mating season for people, too



Turtle Are those sea turtle nests giving you ideas? The Marco Island Marriott on the southwest Florida coast has hit upon a novel sales pitch: vacation nookie. The resort is reprising its Fertile Turtle Vacation Package for couples who need to get away to get it on and conceive a baby during sea turtle mating season (now through Oct. 31). The $419/night luxury package includes massages, pregnancy-enhancing aromatherapy and teas, a photo album and a king size bed with a prominent Do Not Disturb sign.

The best part is the challenge: If you hear the pitter patter of little feet within 10 months of your stay, you get to return for a three-day getaway for free. Talk about pressure!
