Trending News: The Cities Where People Are Most Down To Get It On, Ranked
Long Story Short
A mobile erotica company has produced new research on the most sex positive cities in the world. Unsurprisingly, it’s interesting reading.
You know who’s interested in stats on your sex lives? A mobile erotica company, that’s who. And Lazeeva, whose primary business involves peddling a suite of erotica apps for Android phones and tablets, has decided to put to good use a whole lot of information about sex from around the world.
How? By listing the most sex-positive cities in the world. “We wanted to look into how sex is viewed differently around the world,” an introduction to the study reads. “Which cities have made progress towards sexual openness, and which would benefit from further liberation in future.”
The study involved looking at ten statistics in 200 cities, before presenting a final list of 100 where all the data was available. Factors included libido, porn consumption, adult entertainment and swingers culture. Cities were also scored on attitudes towards LGBT communities and equal rights.
If this is all beginning to sound like a really good advertisement for a mobile erotica company, you’d be right. But then you look at the methodology and it’s… intimidating.
Lazeeva conducted a survey involving more than 450,000 adults, looking at sexual activity, experimentation, satisfaction and sex toy ownership. The company then combined the data with info from reports on sexual health from each individual country, as well as the UN-WHO and World Bank. Swingers listings from each city were used to create a swingers stat, while adult entertainment scores were calculated by the number of establishments divided by a city’s population (spoiler: Vegas wins).
So, what is the most sex positive city in the world? If you answered Paris, then give yourself a pat on the back for both being obvious and being correct. And it’s probably no surprise that Rio de Janeiro came in second. But underlining how thorough this whole thing was, it was for different reasons. Paris was right up there for its swinger culture and adult entertainment, Rio simply because they’re BONING ALL THE TIME.
Below that, though, the list gets interesting. London comes in third, largely on account of its world leading LGBT friendliness. And then Los Angeles, which scores a perfect 10 — one of the few on the list — for its porn consumption. Other cities in the top ten include Berlin, New York, Sao Paulo and Amsterdam. The top Canadian city was Montreal at #13, the top Australian city Melbourne at #17.
What about those not performing so well? Surprisingly, the Scandinavian capitals all struggled, Oslo the highest at #44, Copenhagen a lazy #60, and Reykjavik not even making the top 100.
Cork came in last, most of its major categories failing to reach round numbers. But Tokyo was also a long way down at #94, despite some seriously high porn consumption. And Milan came in at #92, despite reasonably high levels of sexual activity.
Clearly, this whole thing is a rabbit hole. Take a look at the full study here.
