Which Cities Value Sex the Most?
Spoiler alert: most of them are in California.
Chemistry.com has taken two of our favorite pastimes—sex and ranking things—and combined them in one fun survey. In an attempt to discover which geographical locations valued sex the most, they researched the sex perspectives of 10 million people. Venice, California topped the list. And probably unsurprisingly, 8 out of 10 cities that valued sex the most are in California.
California has long been known as the Wild West—where free-spirited artists come to live the dream. And if there's one thing free-spirited artists love, it's sex.
Santa Monica, Newport Beach, West Hollywood, West Los Angeles, Woodland Hills, and Redondo Beach all made the list of cities that value sex the most. But to be fair, they're all in Southern California, not terribly far from one another. San Francisco also made the cut. Miami Beach, Florida came in 7th, and Hoboken, New Jersey came in 9th.
Texas didn't fare so well. Lubbock, Texas was the number one city where people valued sex the least. Texas always gets the raw end of the deal in these rankings. In the past, they've held the honor of having the fattest and drunkest cities in America.
Schenectady, New York; Lincoln, Nebraska; and Toledo, Ohio, valued sex the 2nd, 3rd and 4th least, respectively.
Dr. Helen Fisher is Chemistry.com's chief scientific advisor, and she has an explanation as to why these cities aren't enjoying their time in the sack:
“When it comes to cities that value sex the least, Builders dominate in these cities and are likely to be more expressive of the serotonin system in the brain. Elevated serotonin can dramatically reduce one’s sex drive and sexual response."
And I guess there are a lot of "explorers" in Cali:
"Explorers are likely to be more expressive of the dopamine system of the brain. And dopamine triggers the production of testosterone–the hormone of sexual desire in both men and women."
What do you think? Do these findings surprise you at all?
