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

“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.

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?

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.)

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.

Atlanta is perhaps #1 in being overated as good place to live and overhyped. I was born and raised here and cannot wait to leave in 38 days. I have had the good fortune to live all over the U.S. and traveled abroad quite a bit.

I will politely say that unless you are a gay or black man (or both), there are many cities superior to live in for a single heterosexual man. Atlanta is a bit like high school in that it is so class conscious, phony and pretentious.

If you have never lived in NY, LA, Tampa, San Francisco, Dallas, Miami, etc. then you do not know of which you speak. The women are much better looking on average and much more friendly.

I am sure I will not convince any of you, so please keep believing the hype and I will enjoy the rest of the world.

ATL is fantastic. Lots of gay men = they are not interested in women!! Good more for me. Women are begging for a real man = good here i am! Plenty of beautiful women here covering different nationalities!! This is a guys playground. You don’t need to be rich! Women are begging for real men in ATL…you just have to have a little game. No guy should be sleeping womanless in ATL!!!

Ps: who cares about Hockey?? If a city has the big 3 (basketball, baseball & football) I’m cool. The PGA tour comes here annually….ATL is a great big/little city. Doesn’t get much better than that.

As far as the undue gay comments on my city. If your from Atl you know most of the gay people that are here are from New York, Chicago, DC, Texas and every small town in the southeast. They come here because guess what? Nobody care like in those cities previously mentioned that they will get beat to a pulp. I am Atlanta born and gay people dont bother me. I am not gay so who cares about them. Now I can say it is sad to see people hate themselves so much they try to dress and look like the opposite sex but hey its there money there hair and I dont sleep with them so more power to them.

I agree it’s number 1 for men, but at the bottom of the barrel for women. The men here are mostly gay, ex convicts, rednecks, illegel immigrants, married,very unattractive and very broke. The South may have the prettiest women, but the North has the best looking MEN who REALLY have money and know how to DRESS.

If you are a single man who just arrived in Atlanta, it’s good, but yes, come with game. Attitude is everything. It ain’t all about the “club”. Fine honeys are everywhere including the nooks and crannies you wouldn’t expect. There are lots of woman (fine) that are transplants from other cities. They gravitate to Atlanta for the same reason as some of you single guys. Word to the wise-woman are clever-way more than men. Check the merchandise very thouroughly before you committ. Beware of the “Spanks” and the fake hair fellas. Um just sayin…

I’m a black female and I think Atlanta is awesome. I live downtown and have very easy access to all the nightlife, clubs, bars, and culture. I was able to get a steal when I bought my house, due to southerners not fully understanding the theory of gentrification. I will say, however, that if you are a woman and you’re not beautiful, or a guy, and you don’t make a nice amount of money, downtown Atlanta’s pretentious climate will eat you alive. Personally, I love the rat race; it fuels me.

Ok, I thought this was an article about Atlanta being the #1 city for GAY men. If so, I agree, but for straight heterosexual men…ummm, yeah, I think you mean Atlanta in some other country….Atlanta, Georgia is the GAY MAN’S PARADISE and the DL MAN’S WET DREAM C*M TRUE! I am a straight female and all I see are gay guys all over the place. As for women, they’re average. It doesn’t matter where you go, there are gay men everywhere! “Clean and Safe”? Is this a joke? Where exactly did these people get this information? I’ve lived here for over 22 years and yes back in the ’80’s this was a great place for men, well for women because the men were HOTTER THAN HOT! Now you’d be lucky if you could find a man that was born a man….a lot of the “beautiful women” are actually men in drag or trannies…..so, again, is this a joke?

That I’m a happily married female and 2. That we are MOVING the heck out of this town in September!! Atlanta most definitely IS the next Detroit.
PS — I feel very sorry for all decent, single women trying to find a husband in this city. My advice? Move the heck out! You’ll only find gay men and ugly white, arrogent men who think that they’re God’s gift b/c there are no men in this city. Leave while you can!

Atlanta is nasty and so are a lot of the people. These people seemed to have never left high school and women having babies with idiots they know have about 5 or 6 other kids that he is not taking care of.

There are sexy ladies all over Atlanta, but just like every other city the fuglies will always be abundant, especially at the Clairemont Lounge. Not sure what the author was thinking by choosing this place to showcase, this place really is more of a novelty then a strip club you go to to see hot naked babes dance around. (Unless I am just lucky enough to go there when the D squad is out. I like my strippers stretch mark free, with hair on there head, and with matching size boobs…just saying)

How in the HELL is Atlanta the #1 for men because of the beautiful women? I mean the best times in Atlanta were 1998-2004 when all the clubs and lounges were in Buckhead and Peacthree St areas. Now, it’s dead as a doornail!! Idk about you all, but MIAMI has some of the most SEXIEST WOMEN I have ever seen–black, white, Cubanas, Domminicanas, Boriquas..OMG PLASE- ATL ain’t got NOTHIN’ on MIA!!

the comments are HILARIOUS! If you cant get/keep/screw a quality woman in Atlanta, you need to look deep within yourself and upgrade you!

As for the comments about the supposed low quality of women, open your eyes..or go to Buckhead where the fellas with their sh*t together will be hanging out at Nikko’s, The W, Twist, The Martini Bar, etc. We will be picking up beautiful women with good educations, career-minds, slim fit bodies, black/white/asian/hispanic…ALL beautiful.

If you are a loser in Atl who cant get a woman or bash the women here and try to make them all seem ghetto or rednecks, trust me its not the ladies…its YOU.

Who gives a FLIP about whether we have a hockey team or not??? I’ve also so done a great deal of traveling and Atlanta is very much up there with places like Miami and L.A and Paris. The midwest and most of the NE is filled with a bunch of homely chubsters. Not many pretty girls in E Atl but the rest of the city has that covered. If you’re not getting laid in this town you must not have any balls in your fruit-of-the-looms.

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………………

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.

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.
(FOR THE RECORD ..fo real ……I AM TOTALLY AGAINST THAT IMMIGRATION LAW 100% ……but anyway)
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
