Sexy Valentine: San Diego men have the best sex in America, survey finds

SAN DIEGO – It's Valentine's Day, and San Diego residents will be enjoying a little romance today.

Turns out that men in America’s Finest City are muy caliente in the sack, according to a new survey, and its women love sex too.

San Diego men topped the list of “Top 10 Cities Having the Most Satisfying Sex in America,” according to a 2012 RealAge.com report.

San Diego women ranked No. 10 in the survey.

RealAge.com did not explain if the report surveyed both the straight and LGBT communities, or was simply a sampling of the overall population.

“What qualifies as good sex is different for men and women, so the best cities for sex are different for each gender. For women, the quality of the sexual activity matters; for men, the quantity,” said Keith Roach, MD, chief medical officer of RealAge.com and a co-creator of The RealAge Test.

A satisfying sex life, despite being desirable, has a somewhat small effect on RealAge.

Women with good sex lives have a RealAge of up to 3 months younger than those who don’t. Orgasms are great stress relievers. The surge of hormones (especially oxytocin) leave women calm and relaxed.

For men, those who have two or more orgasms a week are 3.6 days younger than fellows who have fewer. A small RealAge benefit, but men’s ability to have sex is a measure of their health, with stronger, more frequent activity indicating better arterial health.

Everyone's sex life peaks and plummets from time to time. The reasons can range from hormone shifts and relationship issues to medication side effects.

If you have ever wondered, "Is this normal for my age?" RealAge.com offers an online SexAge Test. You will get expert advice on how to compensate for the hormone changes that come with aging, counteract health problems and treatments that affect your sexual satisfaction and make your libido and performance stronger and younger.

Sex was one of 22 individual factors that influence “RealAge” and used to rank the Youngest and Oldest Cities by analyzing 2011 data for America’s 50 largest metropolitan areas generated by the patented RealAge Test. The online assessment test has been taken by over 28 million people since its inception.
