Frisco and Round Rock Full of Texans
Who Love Romance Novels, Sex Toys



Amazon.com released its list of the top 20 most romantic cities in America today, and two Texas towns made the cut. Frisco and Round Rock stood out for purchases of the following:


  • romance novels and relationship books (Kindle Books and print books)

  • romantic comedy movies (digital movies and DVDs)

  • Barry White albums (CDs and MP3s)

  • sexual wellness products
Only cities with at least 100,000 residents were considered, which ignores the widely recognized sexiness of the lone star state's sparsely populated cowboy towns. Hello, we have our own category of romance novels?

I love to imagine legions of Texans snuggling by the fireplace, reading "Texas Splendor" to eachother on their Valentine's Day Kindle, listening to Barry White's seminal album, "I've Got So Much To Give", watching "Romantic Comedy", and using one of the incredibly low-priced sex toys for sale on Amazon, like the We-Vibe for $55 , which includes many different vibration patterns to put you over the top, including "Rick Perry's Mustache Ride," "Texas Two Step," and "Rodeo."

Seriously though, I don't know anything about Frisco and maybe it's a really sweet place where the air is filled with the sounds of couples doin' it the Cowboy Way. And I do love the Round Rock Express, where I've seen at least one on-the-field marriage proposal happen during the 7th inning stretch tire pushing race, but I don't think that figured into Amazon's calculations.

Here's the complete list, which includes the city from which Julie hails, Arlington ("The ARL") Virginia. ITB, baby.
