St. Paul is a "Hotbed Of Sex." Minneapolis? Not as much

When it comes to being a "Hotbed of Sex," St. Paul comes out on top of Minneapolis.

But is that really where it wants to be? The criteria for the ranking in the latest edition of Men's Health magazine included condom sales, birth rates, sex toy sales and the number of sexually transmitted diseases.

St. Paul ranked No. 35 and Minneapolis was No. 50 in the survey.

But we like to think that's because we're less of a "Hotbed of Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and Syphilis." Way to represent, folks. We're keeping it clean.

OK, we're jealous, too. Who knew life was getting so hot and heavy across the river?

Here are the Top 3 Hotbeds of Sex: 1. Austin, Texas 2. Dallas, Texas 3. Columbus, Ohio

Rounding out the bottom: 98. Yonkers, N.Y. 99. Burlington, Vt. 100. Portland, Maine

"The Capital of Copulation," bragged the Austin American-Statesman. "As Texans know, size does matter."

No big surprise about Portland, though. The editor of the Portland Press Herald told ABC, "This, after all, is a place where people wear ski coats on the beach."
