Key Findings

  • Pack your bags for Tampa, FL this summer because it’s the #1 best U.S. city to get laid. 43% of Tampa’s population is single, and Floridians boast 14 orgasms per month, on average. The national average is 12.5.

Good news for Floridians going through a dry spell, the odds are in your favor. Three of our top five cities to get lucky are in the Sunshine State, with Tampa at number one. We all knew Florida had a wild side, but who knew the home to the House of Mouse was such a hotbed for sexual activity? With high numbers of single residents, bustling nightlife, and an abundance of sunshine, it’s no wonder that so many people are finding their perfect match in these sweltering cities.

But what makes Tampa so appealing, you might ask? For starters, nearly 43% of the population is single, making it a mecca for people ready to mingle. If that doesn’t entice you, there’s plenty of evidence suggesting Floridians are more sexually adventurous than the average American. Folks in Florida average almost 14 orgasms a month, over 11% higher than the national average. Plus, with access to 36 swingers clubs, Tampa is more open to sexual experimentation, making it the perfect playground for individuals looking to score.

They don’t call it the Wild West for no reason. Las Vegas, Nevada, came in sixth place on our list with the second-highest percentage of anal-curious residents in the country. Sin City also claims more adult entertainment clubs than any other city in our study, 10 clubs per 100,000 residents (the country’s average is two clubs per 100K).

However, if you really want to ride a cowboy, you might want to head to California. With cities like Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Riverside ranking in the top ten best cities to get laid, California is a paradise for those on the West Coast looking to explore their sexual interests.

Sex Positive Destinations: The Best City by Category

When you think of the American Midwest, sexual exploration doesn’t often come to mind; however, the numbers speak for themselves. Minneapolis, MN residents have the highest number of orgasms in the U.S. at almost 16 per month, 25% more than the national average. Who knew?

When you dig a little deeper, it’s not as shocking as it seems. Minneapolis has numerous resources to support a sex-positive culture, including sex-positive organizations, sex toy shops, and educational resources for sexual health and wellness. The Midwest might be unfairly stereotyped as the most unsexy region in the country, but don’t overlook Minneapolis as a destination for a fulfilling sexual experience.

On the flip side, this wouldn’t be a piece about sex without mentioning New Orleans at least once. The famed Louisiana city is known for its wild Mardi Gras celebrations and being the party capital of the Southern U.S., but did you know that it also has the highest population of singles in the entire country? That means as soon as you step foot in New Orleans, your chances of getting laid increase exponentially.

NOLA’s large pool of eligible bachelors and bachelorettes offers more opportunities to connect with someone who shares a similar spark to yours. Whether it’s at one of the many bars, clubs, or events that the city offers, New Orleans provides an ideal environment for singles to interact and explore their sexuality. With so many of them, the odds of finding a sexual partner in New Orleans are certainly in your favor.

We conducted an analysis of 10 factors related to sexual activity across the 50 largest cities in the U.S. Each city was assigned a score of 0-10 for each factor, with 10 being the most favorable. We then calculated the total score for each city by weighting the individual factor scores based on their impact on the likelihood of getting laid. To obtain the final score for each city, we added the individual factor scores, resulting in a range of scores from 0-50. Higher scores indicated that a city is better for hooking up.

Two ranking factors, sexual frustration ratings and the number of monthly orgasms were sourced from a previous Bespoke Surgical survey conducted in October 2022, which had 2,858 respondents across 44 states and a diverse set of demographics, including gender identity, age range, and sexual orientation. You can find a detailed breakdown of each individual ranking factor below.
