Ok Cupid names Portland the most promiscuous city

Portlandia: sexy, geeky, gay. Promiscuity was a dream of the 90s wasn't it?

Ok Cupid is a dating site that has love for not only the gays, lesbians and tragically hip but also for the stats and geekery (see: tragically hip) and they have just named Portland, a lover of all those things as well, the most promiscuous city in the USA. So I guess we “love” each other a lot as well with Time magazine calling us “Oversexed Oregon.” In general the “liberal media” was more congratulatory than chastising and the Huffington Post has some great cityscapes of the winners as well as sex-related infographics (talk about hipster geekdom), and the Village Voice was just jealous.

The site mined this data by analyzing how many people have profiles with “Casual Sex” marked as a type of relationship they’re looking for and then tallying where those users live. Other cities on the list include #3 Pittsburgh (were there an influx of slutty gays after setting the American version of Queer as Folk in that city?) and #5 San Francisco, one of PDX’s besties. Now I don’t necessarily disagree with this assessment of our town but sluttier than San Fran? Really? Maybe we need to have a slut-off (sex-off?).

Here’s the complete list:

  1. Portland
  2. Seattle
  3. Pittsburgh
  4. Miami
  5. San Francisco
  6. Dallas
  7. San Bernardino, Calif. (WTF? Is that because there’s nothing else to do? I went here for a rave once when I lived in LA when I was 17…)
  8. Denver
  9. San Diego
  10. Houston
