How do you decide if a place in the Tar Heel State is easy to get lucky in?

In order to rank the chances where you're most likely to get laid in North Carolina, we had to determine what criteria helps people hook up. It isn't a stretch to assume that people will get frisky where there are plenty of young singles, areas where people aren't married and with kids, and in areas with high lots of adult things to do.

So we found databases across the internet for those criteria, and it spit out the answer. Like magic.

How we crunched the numbers for getting laid

We know we are answering a bar topic with this one, but we still try to be scientific about it. With that in mind we used the most recent 2016-2020 American Community Survey Census data produced for the state of North Carolina. And we paired it up with data from OpenStreetMap contributors, ODbL 1.0 and colleges from IPEDS.

Can't really get any better data than that.

We paid particular attention to:

  • Population density
  • % of population that's female (More females than males)
  • % of unmarried people in each city
  • % of households with kids in each city
  • Colleges per capita
  • Bars per capita

We then gave each city a "Chance To Get Laid Score".

The higher the score, the better the city is for getting lucky. We also limited our results to cities with populations over 10,000 people. For North Carolina, that meant a total of 85 cities.
