It’s not just the guys you shared a locker room with in high school who like to humblebrag about how often they’re having sex. These days, entire cities are in on the action, too.
But which US city really gets laid the most?
That’d be Austin, TX, which has been named the most “sex-happy” city in a recent ranking by Men’s Health. The magazine crunched data for condom sales, sex toy sales, birth rates, and sexually transmitted disease rates (in this case, for gonorrhea, chlamydia, and syphilis) in 100 large US cities to rank the nation’s most banging-mad metros. It’s worth noting: there’s nothing sexy about syphilis, but for the purpose of this study, a higher STD rate suggests more people are having sex.
Of course, Austin leads the way to the bedroom as the country’s no. 1 buyer of condoms, while ranking 15th for baby-making, and 23rd for STDs, which means either those Trojans are breaking too often, or simply aren’t being used. Dallas claims second place, ranking fifth for rubber sales, sixth for getting pregnant, and -- itching slightly less than Austin -- 25th for STDs. Columbus, OH, came in third place, because what else is there to do in Columbus, OH? But really, the city ranked 13th for condom purchases, 22nd for births, and 15th for STDs. Ouch.
