Superdrug Online Doctor, a real site with a name that belongs on an email about penis pills,* recently did some research into the regions of the world that use the hashtag #sexy the most on their Instagram photos. The research is a little squiggly, considering that Superdrug Online Doctor admits that sexiest places have a lot of beachgoing tourists that are likely posting the #sexy photos, but they still chose to calculate the sexy percentages based on the countries' permanent population numbers. That said, the number-crunch does show which locations get tagged #sexy frequently—or infrequently. Here's how the United States shakes out, or as they technically put it at the top of the chart, the United States States:

Sorry, South Dakota.

Unsurprisingly, the state that's home to Las Vegas, the decadence-dedicated city that's like Mos Eisley if you replaced all the spaceships with boobs, tops the United States' #sexy list. That's followed by three bathing-suit-friendly locations, and then New York, presumably because people are turned on by pizza rats and paying too much for tiny apartments.

On the opposite side of the list are states with frequently cold climates, although New Mexico seems like it shouldn't be that unsexy. Maybe people aren't turned on by New Mexico's turquoise jewelry and communism-themed proms?

While those sexy states might make sense, one other takeaway from the "study" was that the United State isn't that sexy in the grand scheme of things:

But hey, Americans can still tell Australians to suck it. Just not in a sexy way.

Superdrug Online Doctor also looked at the terms most frequently coupled with "sexy." It turns out that Wyoming and West Virginia have some very specific interests:

Romance is still alive in Montana.

Hopefully this information will bring a new wave of foot-fetishists to Wyoming, where they can build on the existing #sexy #feet colony.

Wait a minute. Seriously, Nevada is #sexy?

* Which, yes, they do sell on a page of a picture with a jumping man, even though it seems like it would be difficult to jump with such a great boner.
