Considering all of the beer drinking in this town, it's seems slightly surprising that, according to one study, short-term sexual relationships aren't flowin' freely.

Based on a recent study conducted by, a website for mutually beneficial relationships, 66 percent of women in Milwaukee have one or fewer sexual partners each year.

Nationally, the average woman has three sexual partners per year.

Nashville topped the list of "good girls," with 72 percent reporting one or fewer sexual hook-ups every year. Columbus and St. Louis took second and third place as the least promiscuous cities.

"Monogamy is not dead, it's just harder to attain than it used to be, and perhaps some cities promote a more monogamous culture," says Brandon Wade, Founder & CEO of

These results were based off a poll conducted on 10,000 single, American women registered on the website. Here's the top 10 list:

1. Nashville, Tenn. (72%)
2. Columbus, Ohio (69%)
3. St. Louis, Mo. (68%)
4. Milwaukee, Wis. (66%)
5. Denver, Colo. (65%)
6. Norfolk, Va. (63%)
7. Tampa, Fla.(62.5%)
8. Louisville, Ky. (61%)
9. Tacoma, Wash. (60%)
10. Charlotte, N.C. (59%)

Personally, I am of two minds about this. Certainly, I am proud of Milwaukee women for being particular and, of course, it's a health-conscious choice. But I also think part of the outcome of this study speaks to Milwaukeeans' resistance to change, to try something new. I think we get caught up in the same old, same old, whether it's a TV show or a restaurant or a job or a sexual partner.

But cheers to anyone in a healthy, monogamous, long-term relationship. (And cheers to those who aren't.)
