NEW YORK (Reuters Life!) – Forget New York, Los Angeles, or even Miami, Indianapolis is the most sexually satisfied city in the United States, according to a new report. The Indiana city is followed by Columbus, Ohio, Fort Wayne, Indiana, Cincinnati, Ohio, and Salt Lake City, Utah, in the report by Men’s Health Magazine that ranked the sexual satisfaction of people in 100 cities.
Say what? I find that surprising, myself. But maybe the fact that you hear so little about sex being linked to such cities is because they’re satisfied. I know there are a number of people who make a hobby of sexual exploits—long, tedious, highly detailed lists of who’s been done, how they’ve been done, what they’ve been done with, and where. (I may just have described myself in a highly unflattering manner. Oops. Do I get points for honesty?)
Or maybe they’re just not as loud as the rest of the “hot spot” cities we usually associate with the Big Bad Perverts. A lot of hype goes into fetish-scenes and certainly, there’s more of a buzz nowadays in regards to sex-related advocacy. As there should be. I’ve always believed that people with great sex lives don’t need to talk about it, and therefore, most of them just plain don’t.
Researchers analyzed data on condom sales, birth rates from the U.S. Census Bureau and sales figures from two top sex-toy retailers to compile the ranking. “It’s a statistical snapshot of sexual satisfaction across the United States,” Zinczenko said. “What we were doing was looking at three telling bedroom barometers.”
I’m guess that “sexually satisfied” means they’re having a lot of sex. And I suppose if you’re having a lot of sex, you’d damn well better be satisfied—though I am absolutely positive that’s not the case for a large number of people. I’m still not convinced that birth rates, condom and sexual aids sales equate with satisfaction. I will, however, try to up the numbers for my hometown with a visit to Babeland this weekend.
