THE sexiest towns in Lancashire have been revealed, according to a new sex map.

Chorley is ranked 39th in the table of provocative places in the UK – hundreds of places ahead of the county's next most amorous area.

But it is bad news for the people of Blackburn, who bring up the rear of Lancs towns in Love Honey’s list  - down at number 685.

The Lovehoney Interactive UK Sex Map allows users to search for a city, town or county to discover just how sexy their spot is.

Preston is ranked 37th out of 720 in the table, with Dagenham in Greater London snatching the top spot.

Randy residents of the UK’s sexiest location spend the most on sexual pleasure and own more vibrators than any other town.

Chorley came in at 39th, Colne ranked 496th, followed by fellow Lancashire love spots, Darwen at 511th, Burnley 603rd, with Blackburn at 685th in the UK listings.

Lovehoney product director Bonny Hall said: “All of our data shows that couples with great sex lives enjoy higher overall levels of happiness.

“The map allows you to look up anywhere in the UK, so you can see how sexy your town is and compare to other locations in Lancashire or across the whole country.

“Spending on sexual pleasure in Lancashire is slightly below the national average.

“Couples who have been in settled relationships for years are looking for new ways to spice things up and they are increasingly choosing to experiment together with sex toys for the first time.”

The figures are based on Lovehoney’s extensive data on the UK’s sexual behaviour.

It’s bad news for West Yorkshire, as Britain’s least sexy town was revealed as Batley.

The UK’s biggest sex toy retailer is owned by Richard Longhurst and Neal Slateford, who received the Queens Award for Enterprise for boosting UK exports.
