New interactive sex map names Gladstone sexiest town in Australia and discovers Darwin

Lovehoney data “Lifts The Sheets” On Nations Sexiest Towns

It’s not just the heat that gets Queenslanders going. The Sunshine State is also the country’s official ‘hot-bed’ of sexual behaviour, according to new data released as part of a sex map revealed by global sexual happiness retailer, Lovehoney. Queensland clearly hits the spot when it comes to sexually active residents, with five of its locations scoring in the national top ten.

The city of Gladstone, named after a boring gent who served as Great Britain’s PM 200 years ago, is clearly anything but a quiet and genteel location. In fact, the residents of the shipping port are riding high when it comes to purchasing sex toys and related items. Lovehoney’s data ranks Gladstone No 1 in terms of purchasing products including dildos, butt plugs, vibrators and more.

Lovehoney executed an analysis on the 45 largest towns and cities in Australia to discover the juiciest findings informed by purchases, searches and more. Topping the charts to become Australia’s sexiest place is coastal town Gladstone. It is joined by Townsville, Mackay and Rockhampton, proving that the Sunshine State likes to keep things hot all year round.

However, The Northern Territory tells a more complicated story as Alice Springs and Darwin fall at opposite ends of the sex-trum. However, Alice Springs, which narrowly misses out on the top three, ensures the NT is not left at the bottom alongside Victoria.

Victoria is crowned the least sexiest place to live in the country with Bendigo only able to put the state on the map in position 32. In NSW, the story is a little more uplifting with the beautiful town of Coffs Harbour cementing itself at number 25 thanks to increased strap on purchases in the area compared to its neighbours.

The findings leave key metropolitan cities such as Sydney, Melbourne and Perth far behind as the only other capital city to feature alongside the second sexiest hotspot, Brisbane, is Adelaide at number nine. Sydney comes in at number 23, Perth at number 27 and Melbourne at number 35. Regional Australia is demonstrating that it is leading the sexual charge throughout the country, with 8/10 towns featuring in the top ten.

The complete top ten:

1. Gladstone, QLD

2. Brisbane, QLD

3. Townsville, QLD

4. Alice Springs, NT

5. Wagga Wagga, NSW

6. Mackay, QLD

7. Launceston, TAS

8. Newcastle and Lake Macquarie, NSW

9. Adelaide, SA

10. Rockhampton, QLD

The sex map research also explored Australia’s top fantasies and “sexy cop” is guaranteed to turn most Aussies on. The second most enjoyed fantasy is ‘french maid and butler” which features prominently in the top 20 sexiest places in Australia and includes Gladstone, Mackay, Bathurst, Lismore, Albury and Cairns.

The data also reveals “cock ring” as the most widely searched term on Lovehoney’s website and, with four pages of products to browse through, Aussies clearly want to put a cock ring on it.
