There are a number of party hot spots in Pennsylvania.

For example, West Chester, Pennsylvania has been called one of the biggest party towns in the nation. And you can see why. It has a large number of college kids, a very young population, and frankly, there’s a huge bar scene.

But is it the best city to score in? The purpose of this post is to use science and data to determine which places are the easiest you could possibly go in Pennsylvania if you wanted to hook up with someone.

After analyzing 73 of the state’s most populous areas (over 10,000 people), we came up with this list as the 10 easiest places to get laid in the state of Pennsylvania:

Are you trying to find love in pennsylvania?

You might be thinking, “Indiana?!” Why haven’t I gone there before?

Well if you live in Indiana, you’re probably already aware of the pure excitement level, based on the criteria we list below. And if you’re not already regularly hooking up there…well, then there’s nothing we can do about that.

That’s your own personal problem.

Read on below to see how we crunched the numbers and see how the places near you fared. We’ve got the complete list of the most populous cities below so you know where to go and where to avoid on your next road trip.

In order to rank the chances where you’re most likely to get laid in Pennsylvania, 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 2014-2018 American Community Survey Census data produced for the state of pennsylvania. 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 pennsylvania, that meant a total of 73 cities.

How Is The Area In ?

  1. This data would be much more helpful if not for the improper use of the term ‘per capita’ to describe the figures for bars and colleges.

    Per capita is defined by Merriam Webster as “per unit of population : by or for each person.

    Please, as a business management major alumnus out of Slippery Rock, I ask that whomever writes/edits/proofread to apply the proper variables in your analysis. Otherwise, in this case, Indiana, PA would be home to a whopping 13,690 bars, and 27,380 colleges.

    Obviously, you list 2 colleges in Indiana, which is the total number of colleges per town, not per person. As far as 1 bar? Well, the reader is left scratching out heads because there certainly are more than one bar per Town, and certainly not 1 bar per person 13,690.

    In my opinion, this isn’t even a rookie type mistake that could happen to anyone, instead it completely undermines the total effort out into what could have been an entertaining AND informative guide. Just because it’s about bumping uglies doesn’t mean that we shouldn’t be provided with helpful, accurate, and simplified information. Makes the whole thing seem like a joke that wasn’t taken seriously by the compilers.

    Up your game, folks, because this being my first ever experience reading something you’ve published, it’s not a good first impression.

    Class dismissed.

  2. Also, what’s snackability?
    What’s the formula for that number?
    It’s not your personally subjective rating on each towns’ hipness, cool-factor, and/or buzzworthy score, is it… ?
    That would be too pretentious and naive. But without any accompanying descriptor, and followed closely by the egregiously incorrect and obviously ignorant use of the real variable ‘per capita’, this whole thing reads like a highschool level report, when you could cut and paste your way to an A+, since content isn’t easily graded by our overworked, underpaid, and less decerning intermediate educators.

    Sorry for the fireballz, people, I just needed to have a moment… Please consider my suggestions and don’t take it personal.

    (boom)

  3. I’d does go without saying that Indiana was my example given, and the the term ‘per capita’ was misused in every area on the list…. Okay, just to confirm….

  4. In case I didn’t make it clear above, the misuse of per capita is present for every place listed, not just my example, Indiana…

    Just confirming the obvious…?
