News to Me: America's Sexiest Cities

News to Me: America's Sexiest Cities

Following on the heels of America's most depressed states, a new study published in reveals America's most lustful cities, and they may not be what you were expecting. I was expecting to see San Francisco, LA, Las Vegas, or even Miami, but in fact those famous cities don't even make the list! Surprisingly, Denver, Colorado takes the number one spot; maybe it's all that cold weather. Forbes explains:

Residents of these metros enjoy vigorous sex lives--at least their condom and contraceptive purchases at grocery and drug stores indicate as much.

While they contend that using results based off purchases of contraception is not fault proof, it does give a general understanding of which cities get downright physical the most.

To check out the top 10

  1. Denver, Colorado
  2. San Antonio, Texas and Portland, Oregon
  3. Seattle, Washington
  4. Salt Lake City, Utah
  5. Boise, Idaho
  6. Washington, D.C.
  7. Cincinnatti, Ohio and Cleveland, Ohio
  8. Baltimore, Maryland
  9. Buffalo, New York
  10. Rochester, New York

For those of you who want your city to make the cut next year, you better head to your local drug store and start stocking up for the winter!

If I'm understanding the guidelines of their study, these are the American cities that practice the most SAFE sex. This does not necessarily mean these are the cities with the most sex acts. Although, knowing safe sex is widely practiced is always reassuring.

Looks like urban places have nothing on these locations. Maybe it's because there are fewer...distractions? ;-)

Well, there's not much to do in Denver, and it's so cold I would never leave my house. So it makes sense.

NO WAY. Cleveland??! Maybe this list is a reflection of how BORED the people are that they'd rather stay indoors and use that contraception!

I think the people in those cities/towns have nothing better to do than screw. Just my take on it. I live in LA, I thought we would be on that list...somewhere!
