West Hollywood has come a long way since it was incorporated as its own city on the western fringe of Hollywood in 1984. While its Boys' Town strip along Santa Monica Boulevard can still rival New York's Greenwich Village and San Francisco's Castro district as the gay capital of America, WeHo is a gentrified city with development-crazed leadership.
And still, its sexuality thrives. According to the sugar daddy hook-up site SeekingArrangement, West Hollywood tops (and we do mean tops) a list of the “10 Most Promiscuous Gay Cities in America.” Yep:
The site's survey of 11,000 of its gay male members, results of which were sent to the Weekly and other outlets, finds that WeHo is number one when it comes to hooking up.
SeekingArrangement asked members from different cities how many partners they had in the last year. Based on the location of the respondents, the site concluded that West Hollywood is the man-sluttiest city in America, handily beating (and we do mean beating) San Francisco:
1. West Hollywood, California
2. Washington, D.C.
3. San Francisco, California
4. Seattle, WA
5. Columbus, OH
6. Chicago, IL
7. San Diego, CA
8. New York, NY
9. Houston, TX
10. Atlanta, GA
SeekingArrangement, of course, makes the point that the online world is an ideal place for promiscuity — besides, you know, the bars along Santa Monica Boulevard.
CEO Brandon Wade:
According to our study, more gay males utilize online dating for 'hooking up' compared to heterosexual males. While there is always potential to fall in love, online dating makes it very easy to find singles who are similarly looking for something less serious.
