Despite the many ridiculous quotes to have come out of Sex and the City, it seems that the show wasn’t so ridiculous after all—at least, not in every aspect. WTF do I mean by that? Well, a recent study found that New York City is the most sexually active city, at least among millennials. I’m not really sure if Carrie and her friends would ever have been mistaken for millennials, even during the 90s, but I guess that’s besides the point. The point is, the city that never sleeps sure likes to sleep with people. No, you’re right, I’ll just go throw myself off the nearest building for that terrible comment.
Anyway, this survey was done by SKYN Condoms, which is apparently a brand of condoms that exists (word is still out on if they are a brand that people in fact use). Dubious existence aside, they surveyed a little over 3,000 sexually active men and women between the ages of 18 and 34. They asked them a bunch of intimate questions that I don’t care or want to know about, and one of the bigger takeaways was that millennials in New York City have more one-night stands than their counterparts in any other city. To anyone who has ever lived in New York, this is not exactly news. I’m pretty sure New Yorkers invented the one-night stand. What other city in the world can you meet someone, take them home, have embarrassingly sloppy drunken sex, with them, and then literally never run into them for the rest of your life, even if you return to the same bar you met them at? Not Atlanta, I’ll tell you that much.
Aside from New Yorkers, other slutty cities included Houston, San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. Again, none of this is particularly shocking. Houston just hosted the Super Bowl, so WTF else are a bunch of roided-up dudebros going to do to celebrate/drown their sorrows? San Francisco is San Francisco, and Washington, D.C. is where Trump is. Where’s the drama, SKYN Condoms? Where’s the pizzazz? I want to see, like, that Amish town in Pennsylvania top this list—now that would be something worth writing home about.
But, whatever. In case you need a reason for why you’re stil single, don’t blame your shitty personality or the fact that you consider mozzarella sticks a food group. Just blame the fact that you live in a city where everyone has one-night stands.
