Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

A few years back, the Quality Health website named Denver the most sexually active city in America.

Since then, we've apparently slowed our roll to some degree — but we still like to get busy.

That's the take-away from a new analysis conducted by Men's Health magazine.

The mag set out to determine the most sex-happy U.S. cities using data related to condom sales, birth rates, sex-toy sales and STDs. And while Denver didn't wind up on top, as it were, the Mile High City is still a major player.

Count down all ten below — and to see the original post, featuring more information, click here.
