Supreme Court Justice Potter Stewart famously said in 1964 that it’s notoriously difficult to define what counts as porn in legal terms, adding, “But I know it when I see it.” Seems our friends in Wilmington know it and see it a heck of a lot. The city is the third most smut-loving town in the country. This portrait of Stewart is part of the Collection of the Supreme Court of the United States (Artist: Ruth A. Nestor Hamilton)

We are glad to see that our region has made yet another Top 10 national list!

According to a new study released by Men’s Health, Wilmington, Del., ranks third in a list of the nation’s top 100 porn-friendly, porn-crazed, porn-happy cities. How pornerific!

Despite its name, Philadelphia, doesn’t have as much love for the stuff: We’re at No. 34.

Guess Mickey Mouse ain’t enough to satisfy some adults in Florida: Orlando, the city of Disney and Epcot is on top, as it were, followed by Sin City itself, Las Vegas.

Here’s the top 10:

1. Orlando, FL
2. Las Vegas, NV
3. Wilmington, DE
4. Raleigh, NC
5. Charlotte, NC
6. Minneapolis, MN
7. Atlanta, GA
8. Tampa, FL
9. Anchorage, AK
10. Austin, TX

The study sounds impressive, sophisticated. It’s like real science or something. Says Men’s health:

"We peered through a statistical peephole to tabulate the following criteria: the number of DVDs purchased, rented, or streamed (AdultDVDEmpire.com); adult entertainment stores per city (StorErotica.net); rate of porn searches (Google Insights); and, for fans of soft-core, percentage of Cinemax-subscribing households (SimplyMap)."

The mag gives props to the state of Florida, which ranks as the most randy state.

Much of the South seems immune to smut: Norfolk, Va. (91), Charleston, WVa. (97), Winston-Salem, NC (98), Baton Rouge, LA (99) and Jackson, Miss. (100) rank the lowest.
