Promiscuity not lacking in Las Vegas, dating website survey finds


Lewis Whyld, PA Wire

Blind eye: What are the real costs of the sex trade, and are we addressing them?

From nightclubs to strip clubs, there is no shortage of options for men looking to get frisky in Las Vegas, and a new online dating survey confirms that Sin City is indeed one of the most promiscuous places in the country.

Sugar daddy website, which pairs wealthy singles with attractive partners who want to be pampered, recently polled 5,000 of its male users about their sexual habits.

The survey asked men how many sexual partners they’d had in the past year, with those having more than seven partners receiving the “promiscuous” label.

Thirty-eight percent of those surveyed reported more than seven sexual partners in a year. A high concentration was found in Las Vegas, where 68 percent of men surveyed fell into the promiscuous category.

That puts Las Vegas at No. 3 in the country, behind Chicago and Birmingham, Ala., and just ahead of Oklahoma City.

Rounding out the list of top 10 most promiscuous cities are Atlanta, Phoenix, Philadelphia, Hoboken, N.J., Richmond, Va., and Hartford, Conn.

“It’s Sin City. We have a culture where whatever happens here stays here,” said Brandon Wade, founder of “It’s OK to be a little more open about sex here.”

Wade operates and several other dating websites, including, from his Las Vegas office. Together, the sites have a combined membership of more than 1.7 million.

  1. We are going to use a Sugar Daddy Web Site as a source and expect honest answers?

    I would take more stock in a survey done by a reporter that hung out in the bars on the strip and asked questions.

  2. If paid sex is taken out of the equation, I'll bet there is little difference here than other cities of equal size. Each city does have its own personality but among permanent residents I suspect we're much like other places.

    As for visitors and those who sell sex, that is a constant in almost every city. Some are more open and some require a little more discretion but I've never heard of or been to a city that didn't offer the opportunity.

  3. Author, do you honestly think Wade is credible? Really? Or did you just give him the publicity he desperately needs?

  4. I love the Las Vegas Sun's in-depth reporting. It generates clicks.
