The company looked at 1,500 different UK towns and cities over the last year, collecting all kinds of data, from most purchased toys to the most popular kinks in each area. All you need to do is select a region on the map, and you can find how high they rank for bondage and even the most popular flavour of lube! If that’s not enough, the map even has a feature so you can compare your hometown to your mates.

What is the UK’s sexiest town?

Lovehoney’s results found that the Hampshire town of Andover comes in first place for the sexiest UK area. Over lockdown, Andover had the highest sexual activity by far, proving there really isn’t anything else to do. Following behind them was Tidworth in Wiltshire and Cornhill-upon-Tweed in Northumberland.

A Lovehoney spokesperson commented: Andover in Hampshire is the UK's sexiest place with the biggest rise in sexual activity over the past year.

We have seen a huge surge in activity as couples use sex as a stress-buster to escape the pressures of the pandemic. All our research shows that couples with great sex lives enjoy higher overall levels of happiness.

Hilarious considering Andover was previously described as the ‘most depressing place in the northern hemisphere.’
