I found an article via cbs news that talks about a study done that shows Austin Texas is number one for sexually active adults, and several other cities in Texas also scored high according the report. Maine apparently came in last in the study – but I am sure that population had some to do with that, and looking at the study, it may not be conclusive that adults in the northern state have less sex, but perhaps they are more private about sex toy purchases, talking about sex, and going to the std clinic.
The survey determined the bedroom barometers by using census birth rates, sales of sex toys and condoms, and rates of sexually transmitted diseases.
Also from the article:
…Being the “king of sex” means high condom sales, but also high rates of STDs.
“Sure, it’s a positive to see that we are being smart about sex,” said Andrew Schnitker, a senior broadcast major. “But nobody wants to be the city with the most STDs…
You can never be sure how accurate any study is when it comes to sex, or other adult topics. Many people are apt to not answer questions at all, or only answer some honestly. Going by things like sex toy sales and amount of STDs treated is a great barometer, as it doesn’t put someone on the spot to answer questions like a phone survey. Even then the results are not 100% accurate, it’s easy to believe that people in some places do not buy as many sexy things in person and choose to order online where their shopping habits may not be as accessible to magazines doing a study.
I do think it makes sense that it is probably easier to get laid in the college towns of Texas than in the sleepy cold towns of Maine, and if I had to choose between the two states, I certainly would consider the amount of adults only activities that are going on in each,
