There are cities that are known for fashion, cities that are known for food and even some cities that are famous for fitness.

15 Carlisle, United Kingdom
A survey through a dating website determined that Carlisle is Europe's most promiscuous city. In this city, a shocking 100 percent of male survey-takers said they had 14 or more sexual partners a year. In case you're not doing the math, that's more than one hook up a month. That much promiscuous behavior is bound to make tea time much more fun.
Of course, the results do vary by gender. If you're looking for promiscuous women, Carlisle might not make first place on your list. While men reported to having numerous sexual partners throughout the year, women here only have three to four different partners a year.
14 Portland, Oregon
Dating site OkCupid rated the U.S. cities with the most people seeking casual hookups, as opposed to relationships. These people don't want to get to know you or spend a lot of time with you. They just want to have a little casual fun. That’s definitely promiscuous by most standards.

13 Toronto, Canada
It’s much hotter in Toronto than many people realize. A survey of Canadian men showed that Toronto is Canada's busiest city for getting busy. Men here have twice as much sex as the national average, according to the results of the survey. That means they’re getting it on twice as much as the rest of the country, which is a really good way to stay warm during those frosty Canadian nights.
The survey results suggests that men in Toronto are highly promiscuous and having frequent sex. Now it makes sense that Canadians have such a big reputation for being friendly.

11 Pattaya, Thailand
What’s the most sinful sin city in the world? According to one study, it’s in Thailand. The study wasn’t precisely scientific, but it did have rules. A "sin" city is a place where can find debauchery on all levels. To make the cut, cities considered for the list must offer up drugs, parties, drinking, gambling and sex.
The best place to find all of this, according to one survey that used all these factors, is Pattaya. There's no shortage of massage parlors, bars and brothels, and that's just the stuff that can be mentioned. Sex is everywhere here, whether you want to pay for it or get it for free. You can see it on a stage, talk about it in the streets and look for it everywhere you go -- because it's there.

Ashley Madison's slogan "life is short, have an affair" must have really struck a chord with the residents of Ottawa. There are about 200,000 people living there, which means around 40,000 people were cheating on their spouses. That’s promiscuity on a massive scale.

Gin and tonics flow like water, the tapas are always steaming hot and the people are a mix of sexy Spaniards and visiting Europeans. A city with active nightlife that’s known for its wildness can't be too prim and proper, right?

That’s right: Montgomery has the most STDs of any other city in the U.S.
The data comes from the CDC, which reported more than 4,000 STDs among the population of just over 200,000 people. That’s a whole lot of sexually-spread diseases, and that means that people in Montgomery are having a whole lot of sex.

Sure it sounds like a cliche, but some cities have a reputation for a reason. If you’re looking for love of the sexy kind, go to the city that’s famous for it: Paris, France. According to “Travel + Leisure,” this is still the best city in the entire world for romance.
Maybe it’s all the butter in the food, the smell of bread in the air or the general sensuality of French accents -- or maybe it’s just because of all the wine. Either way, Paris is a place where people like to get it on. Love is in the air, and that means promiscuous behavior is in the offing.
