Houston;'s hot, but not as hot as....Bakersfield?

Sexiest Cities: Don't Get Too Excited, Houston

Men's Health

has found, once again, a surefire way to get mentioned in a bunch of cities who otherwise wouldn't pay it much mind: It's come up with a list of the

nation's sexiest citie


How? By, it claims, examining condom sales, birth rates and STD rates.

And Houston is Number 10!! Yay!! We must be real sex fiends!

Well, maybe. Check out some of the cities that finished above us.

No. 2 -- Dallas. We assume this had more to do with STD rates than anything else.

No. 3 -- Columbus, Ohio. Entirely possible, if you take into account what else there is to do in Columbus other than have sex.

No. 6 -- Indianapolis, Indiana. Apparently sex with farm animals counts. Or maybe Men's Health included the Texans' ass-kicking Sunday as some sort of S/M thing.

No. 7 -- Arlington, Texas. We have spent time in Arlington. And not just at Rangers games. "Sexy" is not a word that leaps to mind when we think about it.

No. 9 -- Bakersfield, California. Now you're just messing with us, Men's Health.

No. 10 -- Houston. Gee, it sounded so much better before we looked at the top nine.
