When it comes to being sex positive, it's definitely easier in some places than others. Lazeeva, an adult entertainment company, recently rounded up the most sex-positive cities in the world, but now they're looking at something more specific — the most sexual cities for women. Come and get it, ladies.
Basically, they looked at factors like sexual satisfaction, sex toy consumption, access to contraceptive, and gender quality— drawing from data reports from groups like the UN, as well as a survey of over 450,000. “At Lazeeva, we know the importance of a healthy, active and safe sex life for women, and living in an environment where an understanding, knowledge and respect of female sexuality is essential for this,” said Tilmann Petersen, CEO at Lazeeva, said in a press release. “We also believe in creating an inclusive and open space for female sexuality in the virtual world, and by opening a dialogue about potential concerns for women we hope to remove some of the taboos in the adult entertainment industry, creating something that all adults can safely enjoy, regardless of gender or sexual orientation.”
So what did they find? Well, here's a look at the top ten, because the US of A really held its own worldwide:
1. London, UK
Scoring high on sex toy consumption and access to contraception earned London the top spot for women— even though their sexual satisfaction levels were only at 6.6. Yikes.
2. Paris, France
The city of love came in at number two for women and sex. So it looks like this city really does have it all.
3. Auckland, New Zealand
With high scores in gender equality and sex toy consumption, Auckland rounded out the top three.
4. Los Angeles, USA
The highest scoring city in America, LA ruled for it's whopping 9.1 sexual satisfaction score — though it's gender equality score was a measly four.
5. Chicago, USA
9.6 on sex toy consumption. I'm going to leave it there, Chicago.
6. Austin, USA
High marks in sexual sastifaction and sex toy use, but Austin was another US city that fell down on gender equality.
7. Brussels, Belgium
Brussels actually scored a huge 9.8 on sexual satifaction, but lower sex toy use pulled its score down.
8. Basel, Switzerland
Though they scored very low on sex toy consumption, high scores everywhere else (including gender equality, get in!) landed Basel in the top 10.
9. Liverpool, UK
Liverpool was the second UK city to make the top 10, guess they're not as proper as we think.
10. Geneva, Switzerland
Geneva rounded out the top 10 and, just like Basel, it scored low on sex toys but high on everything else. Well done, Swiss.
Some places are just better for being a woman. Here's hoping everywhere starts scoring high on sexual satisfaction and gender equality soon. It's the 21st century, people — it's about time.
