Love is in the air, or at least it has been on the west coast…

Ahead of Valentine’s Day, Colwood has been named the sexiest ‘town’ in all of Canada for the year 2020, based on a recent survey by PinkCherry, on online company that sells adult novelty products.

Victoria itself clocked in at #10 in sexiest cities across the country, with honourable mention going to the town of Sidney at #6 in the town ranking.

Though PinkCherry classified Colwood as a town based on its size, locally, it is formally known as a city.

PinkCherry, North America’s leading online retailer of adult products for sexual health and wellness, based the results on which Canadian cities and towns had the most sex toy sales per person.

For the top 10 sexiest cities, they based their ranking on the most sex toy sales per person with the population over 300K. For the sexiest towns, the population threshold was 50K.

According to the results of the survey, the company learned quite a bit about the people who reside in the different towns and cities across Canada.

For example, people in Calgary were focused on couples’ gifts, but customers in Winnipeg seemed more interested in stuff for just themselves… if you catch our drift.

Also noteworthy, the people of Halifax seemed to like their sex swings!
