When it comes to traveling, there's a lot of different factors at play when choosing a destination. Of course there's weather, cuisine, and attractions but is there anything else? Well, if you're single and just jet-setting with the boys, I'm sure you're curious what the likely-hood of finding a vacation romance is, right? I mean who wouldn't want to experience a night of passion with an exotic beauty in an unfamiliar place. Sounds pretty hot and heavy, if you ask me.
Fortunately, the kind people over at Lazeeva conducted an extensive study to determine which countries are the most sex positive. They defined sexual positivity as—"having or promoting an open, tolerant, or progressive attitude towards sex and sexuality."
The study features a list of 100 countries, but for the purposes of this article, we're going to go ahead and give you the condensed Top 10. The categories to determine sexual positivity we're as followed—"Sexually Active, Sexually Experimental, Sexually Satisfied, Sex Toy Consumption, Porn Consumption, Adult Entertainment, Swinger Scrore, Access to Contraception, LGBT Friendliness and Gender Equality.
As you can see, the study wasn't just about determine you're likelihood of getting laid, but rather the entire spectrum of human sexuality and all of the many things that go along with it. To quantify the results, Lazeeva used a mathematical equation—"In order to find out how sexually active, experimental and satisfied citizens of each city were, a survey involving more than 450,000 adults age 18 to 70 was conducted. The survey also informed us about sex toy ownership. We then combined this data with information from reports produced by departments of health in each country, the UN-WHO and the World Bank, all regarding sexual health.
"Swingers clubs and group listings from each city were used to calculate the Swingers Score. For adult entertainment listings we entered the total number of regular night clubs as well as all licenced adult entertainment establishments and divided it by the population of the city in order to calculate the Adult Entertainment rank. Lazeeva used their own anonymous data as well as data provided by some of their partners in order to rank porn consumption in the 100 cities."
"The data used to calculate the most LGBT friendly city was provided by a number of LGBT-related charities and organizations. The Access to Contraception rank and the Gender Equality rank were calculated using studies conducted by the UN. These rankings do not distinguish between cities within the same country but instead give cities from the same country the same score (e.g. Berlin and Leipzig both score 8 out of a possible 10 in the Gender Equality ranking)."
Uh, yeah, so as you can say these guys DID WORK when it came to collecting data, which is exactly what you want from a study of this magnitude. Without further adieu, here are the Top 10 Most Sex-Positive Cities The World:
