A new study by Men's Health magazine finds that Minneapolitans are pretty damn horny. St. Paulites? Let's just say there probably isn't as much Viagra being sold on that side of the river.

Minneapolis graded out as the sixth-horniest city in land; St. Paul clocked in 29th place, one spot ahead of Madison; and Fargo, it turns out, is the ninth-least horned-up city out of the 100 surveyed.

Isn't the North Dakota Capitol basically just a gigantic penis on the prairie? What gives?

Here's how Men's Health came up with their horniness rankings:

We peered through a statistical peephole to tabulate the following criteria: the number of DVDs purchased, rented, or streamed (AdultDVDEmpire.com); adult entertainment stores per city (StorErotica.net); rate of porn searches (Google Insights); and, for fans of soft-core, percentage of Cinemax-subscribing households (SimplyMap).

Orlando turned out to be the horniest city. Florida as a whole is the most sexed-up state, with three cities in the top 12. The limpest area surveyed is Jackson, Mississippi, with both Fargo and Lincoln ranking among the ten least-randy towns.

Here's the top ten:
1. Orlando
2. Las Vegas
3. Wilmington
4. Raleigh
5. Charlotte
6. The Home of Prince
7. Atlanta
8. Tampa
9. Anchorage
10. Austin

Imagine a world where companies like Vivid Entertainment got creative and started shooting hipster-themed porns... maybe something like Chillwave Gone Wild. If such a genre existed, Minneapolis would no doubt rise to the top of the charts. St. Paul might rise a little bit more, too.
