The online dating service OkCupid.com claims its math-whiz experts have cracked the code to matching people up with likely soulmates, or sexmates.
We asked them for some Houston-specific info, and they gave us the local zip codes with the highest percentage of members asking for "casual sex." We could only give them 20 zip codes to work with, so it's not comprehensive.

3. 77055 -- Between 290 and the Katy: With that traffic, people are too tired to cheat.
