America isn’t all about apple pie and family values and the missionary position — some of us are a bit less traditional in our interests, but where do those more risque Americans convene to bond over their, shall we say, less-than-savory sexual preferences?
To answer this question, a website called 50 skills of grey went looking for the kinkiest city in America using scientific methods — or at least, as scientific as possible given something as un-scientific as kinky sexual preferences.
We looked at 50 major American cities, ranking them for total kink population (as measured by active members on kink social network Fetlife), the percentage of the population that identifies as kinky, the number of kink-aware professionals (therapists, doctors, lawyers) listed on the NCSF’s excellent resource directory, and by the porn purchases of their inhabitants, using data from Kink.com.
Plus a few interesting side notes concerning cities that didn’t make the list:
Would you have guessed that El Paso has the smallest kinky population of any major American city? Or that in tiny Harrisburg PA, over 10% of the population identifies as kinky? We found thriving kink outposts in Tampa, a thriving dungeon scene in Atlanta, and porn lovers just about everywhere.
Scroll through the slideshow of the 10 kinkiest cities above, or head over to their site to find out more about each of the entries, including statistics on their respective kink factors.
