You might be surprised to learn St. Louis couples are the most romantic in the country. Those living in the Missouri city were found to spend more on each other in preparation for a romantic Valentine’s Day compared to anywhere else in the United States.

What town took the silver spot in the ranking of most romantic towns? That honor would go to Daly City, California, with O’Fallon, Missouri coming in third. The rankings are revealed by Lovehoney, the sexual happiness people, from new research based on couples’ increase in spending as Valentine’s Day approaches, according to a news release by Lovehoney.

Around 80% of Lovehoney’s customers are in settled relationships and it experiences a big uplift in sales in the month before Valentine’s Day.

“Couples that play together, stay together,” said a Lovehoney spokesperson in the news release. “Couples in Missouri clearly know that the key to sexual happiness is to be bold and adventurous, especially on Valentine’s Day, and, instead of giving their partner the same old gift, are more likely to give  them something that’s sure to spice things up!”
