Boise Ranks 11th Nationally for Porn Consumption

by

In national statistics, Boise has ranked high for being one of the nation's most livable cities, having some of the best bike infrastructure and having one of the most happening independent music scenes. Well, according to an article in Men's Health, Boise can add one more ranking to that list: porn capital. According to the article, Boise—aka the place where vanilla is occasionally referred to as "spicy" and open discussions of sex and sex-related issues are about as common as Bigfoot sightings—ranked 11th in national porn consumption statistics.

From the article:

We peered through a statistical peephole to tabulate the following criteria: the number of DVDs purchased, rented, or streamed (AdultDVDEmpire.com); adult entertainment stores per city (StorErotica.net); rate of porn searches (Google Insights); and, for fans of soft-core, percentage of Cinemax-subscribing households (SimplyMap).

No other cities in Idaho made the list, which means Boise can now officially stake our claim as the swingingest burg in the Gem State. Top honors were taken by Orlando, Fla., and Boise was just edged out of the top 10 by Austin, Texas.

But we handily defeated our ancient enemy, Portland, Ore. Those prudes with their statistically larger penises and their 10,000-strong naked bike ride only ranked 16th.
