According to Playboy.com's newly released (and safe for work) list of "America's Sexiest Cities 2015," Charlotte ranks No. 20. What makes a city sexy, you ask. Well that's what Playboy asked, too, and explains that it's "a combination of hot locals, cool nightlife, a great setting and an undercurrent of desire..."
Making the top 20 of any flattering national ranking is a good thing, I suppose. The top-five sexiest cities, Playboy's research and surveys show, are New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Miami, and San Francisco. No surprises there, but those are also some of the country's largest cities. Wonder if there's any correlation between sexy and size? (No pun intended.) If you're curious about the Queen City's "peers," Tampa and Atlanta are ranked 16th and 17th, respectively. And Orlando, at No. 21, gives the Southeast five of the top 25 cities.
