Maxim: Atlanta No. 1 city for men

“Every day is an opening day” may have been a bust, but Atlanta has a new maxim, thanks to Maxim magazine, proud purveyors of almost porn.

Atlanta, the epicenter of American sexy.

Atlanta, the epicenter of American sexy.

Atlanta is America’s No. 1 city for men to live in, according to those who keep abreast of such things.

How did Atlanta beat out Miami, Los Angeles, Newark and other party destinations?

Ironically, it’s Atlanta’s beautiful women that makes our clean and safe metropolis such a wonderful place for men.

Here’s how Maxim phrased it:

“Atlanta is the ultimate man city. Why? Well, mostly because of their girls score, which was through the freakin’ roof. And there are good job prospects [and] fun night­- life.”

Thanks ladies. I suggest Mayor Kasim Reed send a “Key to the City” to each and every Clermont dancer.

The NHL may not like Atlanta, but Maxim, which rated cities according to sports franchises, nightlife and regional hotness of its female denizens, certainly does.

As for the women, they’ve always got Climax, Ga.

Here’s Maxim’s Top 10:

1. Atlanta

2. Boston

3. Los Angeles

4. Miami

5. New York

6. Tampa

7. Long Beach

8. Pittsburgh

9. San Diego

10. Chicago

Obviously whoever made this list has never actually spent any significant amount of time as a single man in this city.

It’s not even a picture of the Lounge, it’s a picture of the condemned hotel!! Yep, dead sexy roaches and brown water.

Any sport enthusiast would not favor a hockey-less city. In fact I have guy friends who wonder how much longer they’ll reside here.

Maxim is full of it.

Having traveled all over the world, Atlanta has some of the most beautiful women in the world. That includes women of all races and nationalities.

Is it that hard being a single man in Atlanta? I thought the ratio was 5 women to every1 man. Doesn’t that help even the odds of being able to find atleast one good women out the 5?

NO. 1 CITY FOR GAY MEN

When I first read the headline I thought they must be talking about for gay men. For us straight white guys, this city is far from No. 1 in anything.

“clean and safe metropolis”? Seriously? They must be talking about a different Atlanta, because the one in Georgia is neither of those. And as far as the women go, if bad facial cosmetic surgery and comically inflated boobs not normally seen outside anime are what turn guys on, then I guess Atlanta is the place for you.

@Johnathanlb I AGREE. For a african american man its even better. There are so many gay men here it just makes your property value even higher!!! Overall ATL is a great place!!!

if you single guys can’t get laid in this city, something is wrong.. i am a white guy with avg looks and average money.. its all about where you go, how you talk, and your approach..

If you’re a hot gay black man and happen to look masculine (straight) u can pretty much own this city. Ladies more than likely that hot handsome guy you’re making googoo eyes at is probably gay. They live at the gym.

Are you serious? For women, this is a nightmare unless you want a homeless guy. And, from us Atlanta natives; message: if you do not like it here, leave…less traffic at all times of the day and night.
Can we get some nice looking Black men, age 35 and older who are professionals and who do not have 3-4 baby mommas. Thanks. (no disrespect meant fellas)

Seriously?

I’ve been here most of my life and will say that Yes there are a lot of women here, but the majority of them are “GROUPIES”… its all about the money (like someone already mentioned). I use to work at the velvet room and the compound and it was amazing how naive so many of the women (both originally from here and recently moved here) are… Oh yeah, did I mention that most of these women are bitter and crazy?

Don’t they have high VD rates in the ATL.? I’m not really burning or itching to be in that category…but I guess it’s the price you pay to be #1….:-)…

It seems their “nightlife” metric is a little screwy. They divide the population of the City of Atlanta (540K) by the number of bars in the city (are there really 89K?) to get a bar for every six people. Never mind that the majority of the people frequenting those bars come from outside the city limits. (Even many ITPers are outside the city limits.)

That is pretty much right… If you can’t find a woman in Atlanta you’re either very ugly, very broke or gay!!! I’m just saying…there’s women for every type of man here.

I SPENT MANY DAYS AND NIGHTS AT THE CLERMONT LOUNGE GAWKING AT SOME OF THE UGLIEST WOMEN ON EARTH. ONE OF THEM WAS 50 YEARS OLD IN 1972 AND WAS STILL THERE IN 1980. NOTHING LIKE WATERED DRINKS, PABST BLUE RIBBON BEER AND A 60 YEAR OLD HOOKER SITTIN’ ON YOUR LAP.

CLEAN and SAFE???
Are you people on drugs?

In a Feb 19, 2011 report using FBI statistics, US News and World Report ranked Atlanta #2 in the Top 10 Most Dangerous Cities in America:
Crime Risk Index: 484

Atlanta’s crime risk is nearly five times the national average. The Big Peach poses more of a threat to property than to people; in 2009, violent crime rates in Atlanta were only slightly higher than the national figure. But property crimes were markedly higher, with motor vehicle theft 55 percent greater than the national rate and burglary 38 percent greater.

Nothing like a little motor vehicle theft and burglary to get a gal hot.
