Charlotte earned another national ranking on Wednesday when Playboy magazine named it No. 20 on its list of America’s sexiest cities.

That might surprise more than a few of us here in the Bible Belt, but really, Charlotte ranks right up there, according to the magazine.

“What makes a city sexy?” the magazine asked. “A combination of hot locals, cool nightlife, a great setting and an undercurrent of desire, according to our exclusive poll.”

New York City topped the list, followed by Los Angeles, Chicago and Miami. No other city in the Carolinas made the list of Playboy’s top 25 cities, so take that in your Playboy bunny ears, Raleigh.
