The United States has been known to be one of the most liberated countries in the world. This liberation, aside from any other aspect, includes its people's sexual affairs. While most countries, especially the conservatives, have deemed the mere talk about sex taboo, America has been very open about it. We can have a discussion about when, why and what caused this casual trend on sex or go back through a historical timeline, but instead, here is a closer look on the complexities of casual sex through the top 10 American cities dubbed as the most promiscuous.
