Survey says Las Vegas third-sexiest city in America

A view of the Las Vegas Strip.

We’ve got scantily clad women dancing on blackjack tables, topless shows and nightclubs full of short, sequined dresses, but Las Vegas isn’t sexy enough — at least not according to one travel website.

Las Vegas was voted the No. 3 sexiest city in the U.S. on Orbitz’s 2011 Valentine’s Day survey with 15 percent of the vote. San Francisco took the top spot with 18 percent, and Miami came in second with 17 percent.

New York followed Las Vegas at No. 4 with 13 percent. Los Angeles — a city filled with models and celebrities — tied with Chicago at No. 5 with 2 percent.

Thirty-three percent said none of the cities listed were America’s sexiest. (Note: Pahrump was not an option.)

Looks like Las Vegas needs to step up its game. Or hike up its skirt.

  1. Number one in crime and auto accidents and pedestrian deaths and high school drop outs? Legalize prostitution maybe would get you to the top?

  2. Bein' all sexy must make you crabby!

  3. Miami, yes; San Francisco, not really. San Francisco is certainly more open about sexuality than Las Vegas, but it's hardly "sexier."

  4. Yes indeed, because nothing say sexy like the sight of an obese person in a scooter double-fisting plates at a buffet like there's no tomorrow.

  5. San Francisco?!? Cold and wet is okay if you're a dog's nose, but sucks if you're on a date.

  6. With Metro running around like a bunch of school marms, what do you expect? They hurt tourism.

    Leave your heart in SF, your wallet in Vegas.

  7. San Francisco? Maybe if you're gay! Not that there's anything wrong with that....
