Nottingham earns the ‘Hottingham’ Nickname with a First Place Ranking; London is ranked #20th Behind Birmingham, Leeds, Sheffield and Others.

Smaller Towns Have More Erotic Novel Readers Per Capita; The South Have More Erotic Novel Readers Than the North reveals U Star

London, United Kingdom – 6 February, 2013 - Based on 2,000 customers over the past few years, U Star Novels has compiled a huge amount of data from around the United Kingdom. The company offers personalised romance and erotic novels to people around the world. Customers are able to enter all sorts of personal data -- pet names for one another, favourite perfumes, celebrity crushes and more.

U Star Novels allows customers to personalise their own erotic and romantic novels and share them with loved ones.

With Valentine’s Day coming up fast, U Star decided to put the data to good use. Here’s a ranking of the Sexiest Cities in the United Kingdom (includes the Top 10). Simple Methodology: Based on 2,000 customers (in the United Kingdom), we looked at the Number of Erotic Books Ordered By City and then divided by Population to get a Sexiest City Per Capita Ranking:

1. Nottingham
2. Cambridge
3. Brighton
4. Oxford
5. Southampton
6. Bristol
7. Derby
8. Newcastle
9. Cardiff
10. Liverpool

Looks like the Biggest Romantics are located in Nottingham, with 3 times the amount of erotic books being purchased per capita than Newcastle, Cardiff and Liverpool. Earning the nickname ‘Hottingham’, Nottingham ranks 6:1 over London and Manchester (per capita).


The towns with the highest population ranked the lowest on the list -- London and Manchester were nearly tied at the bottom, coming in at 19 and 20th on the list.


Leeds and Sheffield ranked much lower than Brighton and Southampton, dispelling the myth that the colder it is, the hotter the romance is.


5 out of the Top 6 Cities are located in the South; only 4 of the Top 10 are in the North.


- Smaller cities have more erotic novel readers (per capita).

- Colder cities don’t produce more erotic novel readers (per capita).

- The South produces more erotic novel readers than the North (per capita).
