This U.S. City Has The Biggest Sex Drive

As you probably know, sex drives can be a big deal — seeing if your sex drive matches up with your partner’s, what to do if not, and so on. Elite Singles found out the cities with the highest sex drives. They did it by asking 30,000 Americans how strong their desire for sex was and the results may surprise you — i.e., cities where you thought people may have had higher sex drives may not have even made the Top 10.

How was the study done? EliteSingles looked at anonymous user data in response to the statement: “I have a strong desire for sex.” Before the top 10 is revealed, what cities had the lowest libidos, so to speak? Some of the biggest cities out there. Shocking, right?!

Los Angeles came in last, with New York just ahead of it. So if you’re looking for an no-strings-attached fling, don’t necessarily count on hitting up those places. Then again, perhaps the same survey among other dating sites’ and apps’ users may be different, as EliteSingles says it is “only for those who want a serious relationship.” (And if you’ve used sites and apps, you know not all users are into LTRs!) For instance, EliteSingles suggests three to seven matches to users per day, based on someone’s relationship preferences, education, location, and personality profile, and over 90 percent of their members are over 30.

Without further ado, here are the top 10 cities with the highest sex drives, according to EliteSingles’s research. You may want to sit down for this, though, as some of the cities seem shocking. And is it just me, or are you surprised, too, that Vegas is not first?!

1. Denver, Colorado

2. Las Vegas, Nevada

3. Tucson, Arizona

4. Portland, Oregon

5. San Diego, California

6. San Francisco, California

7. Boston, Massachusetts

8. San Antonio, Texas

9. Charlotte, North Carolina

10. Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

And here’s an easy-to-read map so you can see all the cities at once.
