Just in time for Valentine's Day (not to mention the Fifty Shades of Grey movie release) On Mutual Terms, among the growing number of sugar-daddy websites, set out to determine the ten sexiest U.S. cities using a specific criteria: participation in BDSM. And yes, Denver was dominant enough to make the list. See where the Mile High City landed by counting down the following list, illustrated with graphics from On Mutual Terms.

Note: The numbers below are based on a poll of 5,349 survey takers participating in BDSM polled over the last month.

Number 1: Seattle, WA: 983 Number 2: San Jose, CA: 804 Number 3: Washington, DC: 766 Number 4: Chicago, IL: 648 Number 5:
Portland, OR: 549 Number 6: Austin, TX: 487 Number 7: Las Vegas, NV: 398 Number 8: Denver, CO: 336 Number 9: Detroit, MI: 211 Number 10: Baltimore, MD: 167
