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

Yep, and we see evidence of what “men” Maxim is talking about because examples are prominent on the Atlanta Housewives show. Men with lip gloss and high heeled shoes… Sigh…

Don’t forget Atlanta is also number one for having the worst pro sports teams. Only the braves to win a championship.

Also number one in wannabes and retards who love reality TV and celebrity gossip while maxing out their credit cards.

After reading multiple comments from people who seem shocked & angry about the “safe&clean metropolis” I realize why I moved away. Did you ever hear of “tongue-in-cheek” (no, not what the gay men do u rednecks!)?
That comment was not written by Maxim, please people work on your reading & comprehension skills before you start mouthing off. The coulmnist who wrote this article is clearly a humorist and far too subtle for the Low-IQ crowd. C’mon- The Clermont Lounge! Climax? You people are dullards.
Kids, stay in school! Newspapers are written @ a third grade reading level-sad.

The writer of this story must have started his day at either Hooters or The Titled Kilt. Then he moved on to a strip club, which Atlanta has an unbelieveable amount of. While at the strip club he must have hooked up with a stripper who had some meth with her, cause that is the only way you think Atlanta has the best women. Man there is no way that Atlanta has the best women. Oh wait maybe it was the lesbians, yea that must be it, because they outnumber the gay men, that’s it, I finally figured that out………………

There are a lot of women in Atlanta….BUT…it will cost you. Atlanta is a pay to play city…when the strip clubs make more money than the professional sports teams….that should tell u something. Its better than Miami and LA… have to pay to play there also, but u pay a lot more. So if u have a bit of money to spare u ca have ur pick.

I sense bitterness in some of the guys’ comments. I do agree that Atlanta is not the safest city however, don’t stereotype ALL Atlanta women as being ghetto, overweight, and unattractive. The educated, classy and beautiful women of Atlanta don’t congregate in or near the Clermont Lounge. We’re mingling in Buckhead/Midtown and driving back to North Fulton in which we call home.

I get laid all the damn time by hot women in Atlanta. You can’t expect them to come to you though that’s not how it works. Obviously, all the guys who are complaining are either ugly, dumb or unemployed. This is OK with me though, just means more for me :D .

Real Brotha Coming in here……
Someone said something about living in a hut in Africa than ATL??
Well that is EXACTLY how many brothas and sistas are doing to
afford that BMW/LEXUS LEASE payment but you have to have 6 roommates, no furniture, in a 2 Bedroom APT ( AKA… Apartment HUT )
You got pookie and Leon running around in a 1993 Impala trying to look and act like Young Jeezy and they broke Azz H.e.l.l. (No disrespect to to YJ …)
And many of the sistas runnin around with a weave on they got from the flea market runnin around lookin like the broke Lil Kim….(the cheap weaves that make yo head itch like a mofo)
Me……Just Coming in form the “norf” I have never seen so much fakery and fraud in my life…….
I tell my friends up top that I have NEVER seen so many $30,000 a year MILLIONAIRES until I got here. (I call it the “Hip Hop Video Hypnosis”) If there was a law against wearing weaves sistas would flee here faster than the Hispanics did when they passed that BS immigration law.
On top of that the sistas here WILL NOT PAY YOU ANY ATTENTION UNLESS YOU ARE A CELEBRITY…and most of the sistas here are overweight, bald, and average looking without makeup. I love hip hop but Hip hop got these kids twisted
Always remember from a “lightweight” ol skool

The Clermont Lounge? With a busted-up mini-van with a mismatched door out front? Are you frikkin’ kidding me?! Maybe Atlanta made your list but the only thing that could have been a worse file photo would be one of the former Gold Club or Backstreet!!!

Go to Dallas, Austin, Houston or anywhere else and you will see some of the most beautiful women that you have ever seen. Here in Texas we take it for granted. People that come visit always comment on the beauty of the women here.

I can’t agree that any of these cities are best for men. This article was obviously written by a girly man. Here is an alternative list for manly men:

1. Birmingham
2. San Antonio
3. Charleston
4. Denver
5. Dallas
6. Nashville
7. Phoenix
8. Baton Rouge
9. Little Rock
10 Oklahoma City

These are cities for real men.
