The Truth Behind Washington D.C. Attraction Revealed

Within the first month after I got off the boat from Shiraz to Washington, DC in 1985, I could tell something was very different about DC.  No, it wasn’t the politics, nor the museums, nor the awesome sceneries of Washington, DC. Something else  made me  fall in love with the city and settle here for good – the insane ratio of women to men in DC.  I have been always wondered about the reason behind it  for the past 25 years. I think I’ve  finally found the answer today on May 25th, 2010.

A few years back, Washington Post also confirmed there were seven women for every man in DC. Well, I would say, given one third of the Washingtonian men are gay (not that there is anything wrong with that), so I guess there are ten and half women for every straight man in DC.

Anyway, there were always many reasons in my mind for such a fantastic phenomena. Was it…

a) Large number of schools, community colleges, and universities in DC metro that is naturally attractive to women?

b) Equal job opportunity within the government like regulatory agencies –  Congress, Judiciary and Executive branches?

c) Too many national associations, and non profit organizations with great job opportunity for woman?

d) Presence of International Organizations like World Bank?

E) Or is this because what I just read in this press release by Condomania which ranks Washingtonian men having the largest penis in the nation after New Orleans? 🙂 🙂 🙂

Here are the complete ranking from Condomania’s penis database:

Top 10 U.S. Cities by Penis Size

1. New Orleans
2 Washington, D.C. 🙂 🙂 🙂
3. San Diego
4. New York
5. Phoenix
6. Portland
7. Atlanta
8. San Francisco
9. Chicago
10. St. Louis

Top 10 States by Penis Size

1. New Hampshire
2. Oregon
3. New York
4. Indiana
5. Arizona
6. Hawaii
7. Louisiana
8. Massachusetts
9. Alabama
10. Washington

Certainly, it looks like Washingtonian men are more than just big talk, big egos and big promises.

Regardless, if item “E” is the reason behind the insane ratio of women to men in DC, this is indeed something for Washingtonian men to boast about. Even better, great incentive for more women to move to DC.

Here are some highlights from Condomania’s penis database:

–  Lowest Ranking City by Average Penis Size: Dallas/Ft. Worth
–  Blue States vs Red States: Blue States’ Average Penis Size is Bigger!
