Miami’s Irresistible Sex Spell

February 27, 2012 By Matt Meltzer in Miami: Local News  | 4 Comments


Miami was recently rated the second sexiest city in America by the venerable travel site A title we’ll gladly claim. Because no other city really exudes sex like Miami.

Tell people around the country you’re from Miami and you don’t always become better looking. But you ALWAYS become sexier. Because once that word comes out of your mouth visions of hot, late nights and hedonistic, sun-soaked days jump into their minds. And you are the physical embodiment of that fantasy world.

That’s why people come here. To feel just as sexy as the life they imagine Miami to be.



When people come to our city, they fall under its sex spell.  They can feel it as soon as they get off the plane. It’s in the air, that blanketing humidity that mildly reminds them of their bedroom during their best all-night marathon.

The beach bombards them with underwear commercials come to life, perfect people strutting in almost nothing, seemingly saying “This is what you came here for. To have sex with someone who looks like me.” They spend the night in our clubs and bars that serve them until they’re drunk enough not to care. And under the anonymity of a vacation town, sex on vacation becomes the rule rather than the exception.


Everything about this place screams “Sex.”

In Hollywood, if you want to make a movie sexy you place it Miami. Look no further than the names. ‘Wild Things.” “Bad Boys.” “Miami Vice.”


The drug associated with Miami? Cocaine, of course, the sexiest drug known to man.

We have half naked women on our buses. We have condoms on our billboards. We have men with six packs grinning back at us from public benches.


Every neighborhood has a strip club, and every strip club gives you a chance to view and buy sex at almost any hour.  Miami is to a sex addict what New Orleans is to an alcoholic.

We have been called the Swingers’ Capital of America and boast a club - Miami Velvet – dubbed numerous times the best swingers’ club in the country. Even Miami’s monogamous are constantly searching for new thrills.

We are the second-largest porn-production locale behind Los Angeles. We have fashion models doing their laundry next to us in our apartment buildings. We have Latin American TV and film stars in front of us in line at Publix. Even if you try not to have a wandering eye, the only way to really accomplish it would be to render yourself blind.


But it is more than aesthetics and humidity that make Miami so sexy. Our culture is one of unwavering permissiveness. Wear anything. Do anything. Do anyone. Partying in excess is overlooked and even encouraged. And rampant sex is as much a part of partying as drinking and drugs.


The Latin culture has a sex appeal of its own, its gyrating hips and seductive looks a theme woven through everything this city does. People dance, people drink, people end up in bed together. That’s just the way Miami works.

It’s hard not to feel sexy when you’re in Miami. When everyone is wearing less than they should – and perpetually checking each other out - it produces perpetual sexual tension. And while on vacation, even those who don’t usually feel sexy all of a sudden want to get drunk and dance the samba with a stranger. So it should be no surprise that sex on vacation in Miami is part of the travel experience. The city puts a sex spell on you that’s hard to resist. And infinitely more fun when you don’t.

"Miami’s Irresistible Sex Spell"

Doug says:

Great story.  I think that was what was so refreshing about going to Miami from New Orleans.  I went from a place where gluttony ruled (with waistlines to match), to a very sexual place where people were in comparatively better shape.  The only thing that turned me off about the sexual openness of Miami is that it tends to be a very status-oriented, competitive kind of sex.  Men parade their girlfriends like trophies.  It’s not the free love kind of sex of the ‘60s, which conveyed a sense of empowerment, togetherness, and awakening from oppressive social conditioning.

Yes!  I propose a new marketing campaign for our fair City:  Come to Miami, we gots tits a plenty and the streets are paved with jizz!

It’s true. It’s a sexy place but that’s it’s appeal. If you’re not into sexy, you go to Destin.

Too bad it’s a a facade, because most of the breast, bodies, and faces have been pinned, tucked and stuffed like a teddy bear at Build a Bear.  Although it is very sexy and attractive, it’s sad that both men and women do it.  I totally agree with Doug, who says, that women are exhibited as trophies, (men are too by the cougars).  All of this leads to diseases, drugs, violence and last but not least death.
