Where Are the Most Promiscuous Cities in the US?
When it comes to sex, some cities have a leg up.
Lately, there's been a heap of research in the spotlight touting the health benefits of sex. It's an antidepressant, it's good for your immune system, and what's more, it even makes you smarter. Scientists and relationship experts alike seem to agree: Sex is good.
And some cities are really taking that declaration to heart. A new poll has revealed which cities in the United States boast having the most promiscuous men.
Well, some may call them promiscuous — perhaps they're just health-conscious.
At any rate, Brandon Wade, founder of the sometimes-controversial website, SeekingArrangement.com, carried out the poll and found that Chicago tops the list of cities with the most promiscuous men. While most men in the nationwide poll reported having between two and four sexual partners a year, 72 percent of Chicagoans claimed to have seven or more partners per year.
Let's talk about how Wade carried out his poll. But first, a little background:
Wade's website has been in headlines in recent years, as it essentially hooks up young, broke college girls with wealthy sugar daddies. As you can probably imagine, it's been criticized quite a bit, with some likening it to an escort service. But Wade fervently defends the concept of his site, saying the relationships are "mutually beneficial," and not just about sex. And, you know, he might be right.
In this poll, he surveyed 5,000 of the site's male members to find out who was there just for sex, and who was there for a meaningful relationship with an attractive young college student who needs money.

Interestingly, the poll found that there are fewer men joining his site for sex (52 percent) than the average dating website (67 percent, according to the New York Post).
While he was questioning these guys' intentions, Wade went ahead and noted their city of origin, finding out the most sex-crazed cities in the U.S. And that brings us back to our list. While Chicago takes the cake, Birmingham, Ala., is a close second for having the most promiscuous men. Seventy percent of men from Birmingham say they've slept with seven or more people in a year. Las Vegas came in third at 68 percent. Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Phoenix also made the list.
As for the least promiscuous cities, New York and San Francisco came in last, at less than 15 percent.
A full list of the Top 10 Most Promiscuous Cities for Men is below. Again, the percentage notes the amount of men who say they've had upwards of seven partners.
- Chicago - 72 percent
- Birmingham, Ala. - 70 percent
- Las Vegas - 68 percent
- Oklahoma City, Okla. - 64 percent
- Atlanta - 62 percent
- Phoenix - 61 percent
- Philadelphia - 59 percent
- Hoboken, N.J. - 57 percent
- Richmond, Va. - 55 percent
- Hartford, Conn. - 54 percent
