Seattle ranks second among promiscuous online daters

Way to go Seattleites, we're the second most promiscuous city in the country.

Online dating site OKCupid.com compiled the data collected when users describe what they're interested in: long-term dating, marriage, etc.

"One of the choices that people can select is 'casual sex,' so we simply looked to see which city had the highest percent of their members selecting 'casual sex' as the kind of relationship they're looking for," co-founder and CEO Sam Yagan told 97.3 KIRO FM's Dori Monson Show.

Our I-5 rival, Portland, came in at number one.

Not surprisingly, men in Seattle are three times more likely to answer "casual sex" than women.

"For Seattle, it was 8.5 percent of our members, so it was about four (percent) for women and about 12 (percent) for men," said Yagan.
