NEW YORK CITY Rounding out our six sexcation destinations is the city never sleeps, and for good reason: Sex is at the very core of the Big Apple. New York City's unique combination of celebrity, creativity, prestige, and power gives the city a distinct energy and appeal to all who are welcomed by Lady Liberty, whether you're a Greenwich Village hipster or a member of the Upper East Side’s high society. The diversity with the city’s five boroughs (Manhattan, Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Staten Island) is part of its allure to the millions who live there and the millions more who visit there on an annual basis. It’s the perfect mixture of upscale sexiness and wild, unhinged grittiness, which provides all the ingredients of making a sexually explosive Molotov cocktail. The city's gentlemen's club scene is virtually second to none, and that includes Las Vegas, with nearly 70 clubs catering to both men and women as every major chain has a presence in the city. But it's the unabashed sex scene that puts NYC on the list as it is the place that gave birth to Studio 54 and Plato’s Retreat and today boasts more than a dozen swinger and underground sex clubs with names like the Labyrinth, Bowery Bliss, Submit, Lip Service and Intimate to name a few. And then of course, there is the Museum of Sex, also known as MoSex, located right on Fifth Avenue in Manhattan, dedicated to “the history, evolution and cultural significance of human sexuality.” While arguments can certainly be made for other cities that did not make our dirty half dozen list, there is something else to keep in mind. These days you don’t necessarily have to travel away from your home town to get a little nooky. In today’s world of smart phones, it seems that all you need to do to get laid is download an application like Tinder, swipe right, and voilà, the local Motel 6 that sits two blocks east is a sex destination. But is it really that easy? Under normal circumstances would you ever consider Columbus, OH, Austin, TX, Seattle, WA or Pittsburgh, PA to be sex destinations? Of course not. Nobody would! However, these cities are among the Top 30 in the U.S. where Tinder users are finding members of the opposite (and same) sex for a close encounter of the horizontal mambo kind. If you were to go by sheer numbers, you would think that the Top 6 Tinder cities would match the Top 6 population centers in the U.S. In some cases they do align, but not all of them. Top 6 population centers in the U.S.A. 1. New York, NY 2. Los Angeles, CA 3. Chicago, IL 4. Houston, TX 5. Philadelphia, PA 6. Phoenix, AZ Top 6 Tinder cities 1. Los Angeles, CA; 2. New York, NY; 3. Chicago, IL; 4. San Francisco, CA (#13 in population) 5. Boston, MA (#23 in population) 6. Phoenix, AZ. But there are some things to consider in the numbers. For example, in New York 40% of the population is single, and there are 15.9% more women than men (39% more between the ages of 22 and 29), which gives men a clear advantage in the Big Apple. However, in San Francisco 60% of the population is single, and men outnumber women by 12%, meaning that in The Golden City the ladies get to pick and choose. At the end of the day, what does it all come down to? Wherever you are, wherever you go, whether it's a well-known destination of decadence and depravity or a wholesome little hole-in-the-wall where rainbows and butterflies are commonplace, if you have an itch, one way or another, you will be able to scratch it. And you’ll be smiling the whole time you do.
