One of the most popular items on Westword's news blog this year has been our list of ten suggestions for Front Range places to have sex outdoors.
Now, we have a better idea why so many people responded to that post.
We recently stumbled upon a vintage survey by Trojan Condoms that "links hot weather and precipitation to increased sexual frequency and satisfaction."
Among the findings: Respondents rated rainy weather as the best during which to have sex — and sexual frequency tended to be higher in warm weather cities.
More interesting to us, though, was evidence that people in Denver were more willing than those in pretty much every other community to have sex inside or out, no matter the meteorological conditions.
First up is the percentage of survey-takers by city who say they've had sex outdoors.
As you can see, Denver finished in fourth place — not bad.
Now, let's examine where the Mile High City finished when it came to the question of cities whose residents said they'd had sex outdoors in the rain.
Suddenly, Denver's risen to second place. Impressive.
But what about the percentage of a community's citizenry that's "always up for sex regardless of the temperature"?
Here are those numbers.
