There are a number of party hot spots in West Virginia.

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 West Virginia if you wanted to hook up with someone.

After analyzing 29 of the state’s most populous areas (over 5,000 people), we came up with this list as the 10 easiest places to get laid in the state of West Virginia:

In order to rank the chances where you’re most likely to get laid in West Virginia, 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 2013-2017 American Community Survey Census data produced for the state of West Virginia. 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 5,000 people. For West Virginia, that meant a total of 29 cities.
