•Forbes ranked the city seventh in the nation in its 2007 survey of “America’s Most Lustful Cities.” Lacking “government or academic research on the sexual practices” of the various metropolitan areas, the magazine instead based the rankings on market research of contraceptive sales over 52 weeks in the nation’s 50 largest cities. Tying with Cincinnati, Columbus sold 70 percent more contraceptives than the average city of its size. Male contraceptive sales exceeded the per capita average by 71 percent; female contraceptive sales were 59 percent above average.
• Men’s Health magazine ranked Columbus second in its 2008 survey of the nation’s “Most Sexually Satisfied Cities.” Indianapolis beat Columbus to first place.
If we could get UDF to start selling condoms maybe we could move up in those stats.
