According a recent study conducted by condom manufacturer Trojan, we're at least in the top ten for US cities based on how often we have sex and how often we're satisfied with it. Their study has us ranking number 4 in the nation, with Angelenos getting lucky an average of 82 times a year--that's just a few times shy of the action in Atlanta and Washington DC, but well behind Houston, where the Texans are gettin' it on 101 times a year (is there anything else to do there?).Of course, many will argue that there's no point doing it if you aren't doing it right, which explains their rankings for the Rates of Sexual Satisfaction by City; here we score (get it, score?) 6th, a little lower behind the more efficient folks in Atlanta, New York, Houston, Dallas/Ft. Worth, and Chicago (who technically tie us with a 66% rate of, well, satisfaction).

So why is Trojan filling our tips inbox with this info? Well, besides to gratify those who have a thing for numbers, it's to let us know they've got a new condom that will "raise the 'sexual pleasure and satisfaction quotient' in America." We'll leave that up to you determine, and calculate, for yourself.
