…and this is why we choose to throw all our events in Hoboken. This ranking shouldn’t take anyone by surprise, just a few years ago Hoboken was ranked the #1 city for singles in the U.S. by CNN.
But don’t let this latest report fool you. It’s not just about promiscuity. The real takeaway here is Hoboken residents value a good time more than anything else. 1,200 person bar crawls. Mumford & Sons concert pre-party. NFL Sunday Fundays. If you build fun they will come.

NY Daily News: Ever hear the naughty limerick about “the young girl from Hoboken?”
Well maybe there’s something to it: The city on the west side of the Hudson River is the eighth-most promiscuous in the country, according to a survey by an online dating website.
SeekingArrangement.com polled 5,000 of its members and found 57% of those living in Hoboken said they had seven or more “friends with benefits” in a year.
New York City didn’t even get close to that. The survey found it’s actually one of the least promiscuous cities, with only 15% of users saying they had seven or more partners.
A typical member of the website admits to hooking up with only two to four partners a year.
The site claims to have invented “the modern Sugar Daddy” and caters to wealthy men seeking “mutually beneficial relationships” with women.
Its 1.7 million members rake in income of $275,000 a year, though there are no financial requirements to join, according to a spokeswoman.
So if it’s not the Big Apple, what’s is the most promiscuous city of all? That would be Chicago, where 72% admitted to having no-strings-attached-arrangements with seven or more people in a year.
And psst! Birmingham, Ala. — deep in the Bible belt — came in a close second.
