World’s sexiest cities
Where do you feel most alive?

What makes a city sexy? It's a quality that transcends the mere physical beauty of its inhabitants. We are talking about those special places that make you feel incredibly alive, where you shrug off the drab clothes of everyday experience almost as soon as you touch down.
That lightness of being does, it is true, often lead to thoughts about romance, and our sexy cities certainly have, shall we say, something of a reputation. Paris (in the springtime, of course) seems particularly good at macaroon-like affairs that are forgotten almost as soon as they are over; Sydney, bursting with buffed beach bodies, is just the spot for a bit of narcissistic nookie; Istanbul is all about the thrilling coming together of east and west.
Leaf through our selection of the world's sexiest cities - and then let us know, in the comments below, where all your senses feel most turned on.

A city in England on a "sexy city" list? You must be having a laugh. Who appreciates a nation that's full of anger, hatred, bitterness, ignorance, lack of education, 13 year old pregnant girls, a nation that always looks for a scapegoat to blame than take responsibility, a nation that is ridden with immigrants who can't even get along with the ignorant, talentless and bitter local folk, a nation whos preferred way of life is binge-drinking, unprotected sex and unwanted pregnancies, a nation whos tourists cannot wait to leave 5 minutes upon landing? Call me a cynic, but isn't this country lightyears behind the rest of the world?
England is the pet chihuahua of America. That is common knowledge - no sources or evidence is required for that.
England is a nation full of subliminal racism - from all parties - no evidence is required for that.
Every nation has its troubles. But England just can't seem to accept and tolerate change, instead look to other factors and blame those instead. Have the Spanish complained about the 274,000 English migrants? Have the Canadians complained about the 579,620 English migrants? Have the Australians complained about the 1 million + English migrants?
Example of how narrow minded certain English people are (keyword CERTAIN).
Nick Griffin – “The TV footage of dozens of gay demonstrators flaunting their perversions in front of the world's journalists showed just why so many ordinary people find these creatures so repulsive”. (Well done Mr Griffin, the 5.4% of the worlds homosexual population will dislike the English a hell of a lot more if these uneducated idiots are to be brainwashed by you and bring you into power)
And then we have the dole dossers, the Sun and Daily Mirror faithful - "Get out of our f"cking country and go back to your own, we are a CHRISTIAN country". An ignorant viewpoint from uneducated people that can't seem to comprehend that 1.3 million of Saudi Arabias 26.7million is actually Christian! (shock, horror, Christians in a Muslim country?! ****?!). Compare that to Britains 2.4million Muslim population from a total population of 61.3million. And that's 4%!! And the English can't seem to take it!!
Evidently, these ignorant louts seem to forget that 2.5 MILLION of INDIAN/PAKISTANI men fought ALONGSIDE the English during the Second World War!! They helped England to prevent the Nazi Hitler take over – and the same people wish to vote in another Nazi in Griffin!! How ludicrously misinformed, misguided and uneducated this nation is. And to add salt to the wounds, Englands closest neighbour - Scotland, absolutely despise English people!!
So there we go. England is quite a stupid nation, full of stupid uneducated, narrow minded and angry people. Can you really blame the rest of the world for not liking us very much? Smile now. =]
As Alan Partridge expertly said..........
Yeah. I think the Irish are going through a major image change. I mean, the old image of Leprechauns, shamrock, Guinness, horses running through council estates, toothless simpletons, people with eyebrows on their cheeks, badly tarmacced drives – in this country, men in platform shoes being arrested for bombings, lots of rocks, and Beamish. I think people are saying “yes, there’s more to Ireland than this”. A good slogan for the tourist board – [does the bad Irish accent again] “Dere’s more to Oireland dan dis.”
