And the Most Sexually Satisfied City In America Is…

Not New York. Not L.A. Not Miami. In fact, it’s a city that has never even had its own season of The Real World.

It’s Indianapolis.

Yeah, I know.

According to the latest issue of Men’s Health magazine, Indianapolis is the most sexually satisfied city in the U.S. The ranking is a combination of stats including condom sales, Toys In Babeland sales, and birth rates. The top ten cities, in order, are:

  • Indianapolis, Indiana
  • Columbus, Ohio
  • Fort Wayne, Indiana
  • Cincinnati, Ohio
  • Salt Lake City, Utah
  • San Antonio, Texas
  • Denver, Colorado
  • Boise City, Idaho
  • Chicago, Illinois

So… people in the Midwest are getting the best action? I’m not sure my wholly unscientific polling would agree with this data, but cute boys in Indiana and Ohio should feel free to call us and try to convince us otherwise.

    Hell Yes! Who knew that I had a reason to be proud of Indiana!

  • Jenny

    I live here. I don’t see it. Not because I don’t get laid, but because the sexual produce is sub-standard. Columbus and Cincinnati…lived there too. Got a lot of ass in Columbus. Then again, I was younger and more enthusiastic.

  • Riddle

    I believe it! I live here, and I am most definitely satisfied. Go Indianapolis!

  • Lilit Marcus

    The town where I went to college (Greensboro, NC) is number two on the list of least sexually satisfied cities. I take umbrage with that, but maybe things have changed since I left.

    • Nat

      Maybe things changed *because* you left… ; )

  • Elle

    What idiot came to this conclusion? Higher condom sales and birth rates don’t mean a more satisfying sex life.

    • lynne

      Depends on your goal. If you just want to have sex the condoms allow you to “come ahead on” without you can go ahead and make that baby. Either way you are sexually satisfied and don’t have to worry.

  • Amy

    I call shenanigans on their research! Condom and toys sales are pretty much only tangentially related to sexual satisfaction, and birth rate has pretty zilch to do with it. Calling ANY city the “most sexually satisfied” based on those criteria is ridiculous; sexually active does not always equal sexually satisfied.

    • Alicia

      It does if you’re a man. Between trying to assure their gender’s romantic prowess and the fact that any sex pretty much does equal satisfaction for guys explains why Men’s Health would use poor indicators such as these to judge satisfaction. After all, in their minds, if a lot of people are getting some, then they’ve got to be happy, right?

  • Lizzy

    This is not the least bit surprising. Ask any any midwestern teenager what there is to do in their town/city. Chances are you’ll hear something akin to “drugs and each other”

  • Lindsay Hartman

    Seriously… either there are a lot of defensive people from Lexington, Kentucky here (I know, it hurts to be last), or you just can’t be happy for anyone! Indiana is never known for anything cool, can’t you just give us this? And honestly, all we have to do is drugs or each other? Maybe I was just an exceptional teenager, (no maybes, I was) but I had plenty going on. And no matter how old I get, I pray that I never get so pathetic that I sleep with someone out of boredom!

    Can’t we all just agree that it’s a silly study from Men’s Health Magazine, but it’s still fun to think of the Midwest as something other than fly-over space? I don’t care what criteria you use, if someone wants to call Indiana sexy or sexually satisfied, I say, Good For Us!

    • Stu

      There is alot of famous people who have came from Indiana so we do have more to be proud of besides this study.

  • Jenn

    We are famous for our tender loins.

    Just kidding. I’m going to have to ditto what Jenny said about the sub-standard sexual produce. Yeesh. Sorry, Indy, but it’s true.

  • Tom

    I’d say that this study just proved that Indianapolis is the *worst* city to buy condoms in.

  • sam

    a lot of them are overweight though. what else can you do to kill time when you dont work or work out

    • By Ang

      Sex burns calories, dummy. It’s a great work out in itself.

  • Natasha

    Wow, I guess I didn’t know how attractive someone was had anything to do with how sexually satisfied they were. Just because you’re sexually satisfied, doesn’t mean it has to be with a person, hence the toy sale relevance.
    Not even the magazine said it was a legit study. It was all based on the criteria they used. To truly find out what city is most sexually satisfied, you’d have to ask every single person in the U.S. if they were satisfied with their sex life.

    I think it was fun to read. My state didn’t do too bad, but i’m not offended by any of this, because I’m personally sexually satisfied, so i’m not sure why people are getting their panties in a bunch by this.

  • Ninja Turd

    This would explain all the cattle with slap marks on their asses.

  • Bodean

    Hey!!! That’s only 9! The last town musta got off!!!

  • http://www.kari-peters.com Kari

    Chalk it up to long, drawn-out winters, perhaps….? As a fellow Hoosier from just a few miles up the highway, I say…. Go, Indy! ;)

    And really, people, it’s just a quirky bit of writing from a magazine, no one’s attacking personal faith or politics here. Relax! =)

  • Indy Girl

    I am from Indianapolis and can tell you that we have a very diverse and welcoming sexual scene. We have the swingers scene, The Gay scene, BDSM and also a large range of vanilla people who are willing to learn and step outside the box. For the most part people are not judgmental and no matter what you enjoy you can find a place and people to experience it with if you willing to look.

  • Black Iris

    Sorry to disappoint all the Midwesterners, but I think it’s really a measure of age, not how much sex or how good the sex is. Younger people are more likely to have babies and use condoms. Older people are more likely to be married and using other forms of birth control (but married people still have more sex and like it more). Also I think I saw this somewhere else and Indianapolis had high STD rates and low rates of buying condoms which is not a good thing.

    There is no reason to add a comment to this story.

  • Anon

    To me, this just seems to prove that the mid-west doesn’t know how to use a condom and they’re kinky.

    Since moving to Ohio, I’ve been offered to participate in orgies and three-ways more times than my entire life living in California. And I hang around a pretty suburban, upper class community. People here are FREAKS. So, I’d probably agree with this wholeheartedly.
