WWD LIST: Seven Pitti Uomo Historic Exhibitors

Pitti Immagine may be turning 30 this year, but Pitti Uomo started its journey long before that. Since 1972, which marked the first edition of the Florentine trade show, the appeal of the fair has exponentially increased to reach its status of a key destination and barometer of what’s trending in men’s wear. Here’s a list of brands that have been exhibiting at the show since the beginning (or almost), dishing on what makes Pitti Uomo unique, how it evolved through the years and in what way it could further develop in the future.
 
1. HERNO
Italian outerwear label founded in 1948.
PITTI UOMO DEBUT: 1975
WHO: Claudio Marenzi, chief executive officer of Herno and Pitti Immagine president since 2017.
WHY PITTI UOMO: Because it’s the largest and most important trade show dedicated to men’s fashion. We have a very strong bond with it. My father Giuseppe, who founded Herno, recognized this Florentine show’s central role and importance in gathering brands and buyers hailing from all over the world.
BOOTH EVOLUTION: We remained loyal to our location in the central pavilion, in the area dubbed “Classico Italia.” But throughout the years, our stand expanded considerably. Starting last season we also added an exhibition space in the

WWD List: Lingerie Brands Sporting Swimwear

Shoppers are hot for swimwear right now.
And it’s not just because summer is coming. Or, because lingerie giant Victoria’s Secret recently started selling swimsuits again. Thanks to platforms like Instagram, swimwear has become a year-round business.  
Sales in the global swimwear category totaled $ 21.7 billion last year, according to market research firm Euromonitor International.
And more lingerie brands are now trying to get a piece of that market, invading swimwear with their own collections of bikinis and one-piece bathing suits.
The transition might seem natural for the two categories that share many characteristics. 
But Cora Harrington, founder of the blog The Lingerie Addict, said it would be easier for companies to sell swimwear than lingerie.
“It’s hard to convince people that they should be spending more than $ 25 or $ 30 on a bra,” said Harrington, author of “In Intimate Detail: How to Choose, Wear and Love Lingerie.” “There doesn’t seem to be that same challenge when it comes to swimwear. People are more willing to spend $ 50 or $ 100, or even $ 200 on a swimsuit.” 
She added that in the U.S. it’s also hard to tempt shoppers to drop large amounts of cash on something they can’t see, while swimsuits are

London Sunday Times Publishes Rich List, With Brexit a Big Wealth Factor

THE WEALTH DIARIES: The 2017 Sunday Times of London Rich List is out, ranking British — and international — billionaires and millionaires whose wealth reflects the shape-shifting world economy over the past 12 months.
The 29th annual edition of the list includes Britain’s 1,000 richest people, and the compilers argue that many of the 134 billionaires were able to amass even more wealth from the “post-Brexit boom” last year, which fueled the stock market and pushed down the value of the pound. New money, they said, came mainly from the city of London, property and manufacturing.
“While many of us worried about the outcome of the EU referendum, many of Britain’s richest people just kept calm and carried on making billions,” said Robert Watts, who compiled the list.
A sidebar to the main story is the International Rich List, which is even more interesting than the British one. At number one is the Walton family, owners of Wal-Mart Stores Inc., whose net worth is estimated to be 100.6 billion pounds, or $ 136.82 billion; at number four is Inditex owner Amancio Ortega, with a fortune of 63.5 billion pounds, or $ 86.36 billion; while at number 12, there’s Bernard Arnault, whose net worth is calculated to be 35.2

New York & Co., Tommy Hilfiger, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Tops ThredUP’s ‘Purge Surge’ List

REPURPOSE, REUSE: With consumers showing more interest in upcycling, recycling, sustainability and the sharing economy, many are weeding out their closets to resell, donate or swap apparel with someone who will wear it.

In what the company refers to as the biggest “purge surge,” New York & Co. ranked first with a 472 percent increase followed by Tommy Hilfiger, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics, Liz Lange Maternity and GAP Fit respectively.

10 New Books By Women Writers Of Color To Add To Your Must-Read List

Glory Edim just wanted to talk about books with her friends.

At least, that’s how her book club, Well-Read Black Girl, got started. She began posting about new books she looked forward to reading on Instagram, and decided to do an in-person discussion of Ta-Nehisi Coates’ Between the World and Me. That meeting was transformative for Edim and the other women in attendance. “Some people were crying, people just really got into what made the book emotional for them,” she told The Huffington Post in an interview.

It was an intimate gathering of 10 or so avid readers; now, two years later, the group has ballooned to over 40, not counting the growing online community Edim has garnered, or the book lovers who turned out to her recent events at the Brooklyn Museum or The Strand. In the future, Edim wants to open satellite chapters in Los Angeles, Chicago, Atlanta and anywhere else there’s interest.

But for now, she’s just excited to spotlight authors, both established and forthcoming. Below, she raves about some of her favorites. 

How did your book club come about?

Originally, it was something that I had started with the intent of just making new friends and having it be a small thing I was doing with friends from college. My boyfriend, for my birthday, had made me this shirt that said “well-read black girl” ― I’ve always been a little bit of a bibliophile, books everywhere. So when people would see this shirt, they’d inquire about it and want to know, “Oh, where did you get it?” So I was like, oh, this is a catchy name, this is something I could use for the book club.

I work in marketing, so it was my natural inclination to end up using Instagram to spark conversation. I noticed that other people started following along, asking for suggestions or my book recommendations, so I started to do a newsletter dedicated to this idea of paying tribute to black women writers and to amplify their voices. So that’s how it got started, from a T-shirt to an Instagram to this whole movement two years later. For lack of a better word, it was kind of a selfish idea. I just love books.

So it started online, and then you started meeting in person.

One book that I was reading at the time was The Star Side of Bird Hill by Naomi Jackson. The Ta-Nehisi Coates book was kind of a test run, but then with Naomi’s book, I ended up meeting her […] and asking her to participate. When I made that ask, I didn’t anticipate that she would say yes. And she decided that she would come and talk to us about the book. That was the first Well-Read Black Girl event. She read a passage from the book, and she told us about her creative process, and even what happened when she had the book as a draft. I give so much credit to Naomi, because without her encouragement I probably wouldn’t have gone full-fledged and continued so adamantly about inviting people and building a community. And her friend Natalie Diaz joined her at the discussion, so it was like, two-for-one.

So Naomi was like, you should talk to Angela Flournoy, she has her new book The Turner House coming out. So then that became our next book and we invited her to come speak. So it kind of snowballed, gaining momentum slowly.

It wasn’t this massive group of people. It was very intimate. It felt like you could ask questions that were just in context. Some of the questions weren’t about Naomi’s book, it was like, how did you feel when you were a 13-year-old girl? It became a larger discussion about mental illness, and how you define black girlhood. All these things started to emerge from the book club. It was very affirming to have other women nodding, saying, “Yes, I felt the same way when I read this paragraph.” Clearly you want to talk about the book, but it’s also a great space to be like, “Hey, girl, what’s happening in your world? We support you and help you through whatever you’re going through.”

It sounds like an intimate space. How do you maintain that as the book club grows?

It’s 35 or 40 people ― it’s a lot larger. This year we kicked off a partnership with New Women’s Space, a community center, almost. They host workshops and do panels. It kind of runs the gamut. We changed the schedule so we meet the last Saturday of every month. Our first meeting there was in January, when we did Brit Bennett’s book The Mothers. And we’re reading Zadie Smith’s book Swing Time right now.

When I think about the intimacy, it is harder to maintain when it compares to the 10 women I started with. But those 10 women are still part of the group. They help facilitate the conversation. It’s very democratic, so we rotate who moderates. I’m very into fluid conversation. We break into groups to have conversations one-on-one, then come together to have a group dialogue. We go to the movies together, go to concerts together, do other things outside of the book club. Friendships are forming.

It’s also very intergenerational. I’ve had moments when moms and daughters come, too. Last summer we were reading the book We Love You, Charlie Freeman, and this girl came with her mom. Like, oh, this is so cool.

Is there any way for readers who aren’t in New York to participate?

One thing I’m testing out this year that I’m really excited about is using Facebook Live more, live streaming in order to share the experience. I’m also hoping to spread more chapters throughout the U.S. I’m going to be in LA in April, and I’m planning to host a book club and a few events up there. The same idea for D.C., Chicago and Atlanta. I’m laying the groundwork for it and finding people that are ambassadors. 

How do you choose the books you read?

Initially, it was a little bit of the Oprah’s Book Club mentality. But now I’m fielding requests from different people, especially members of the book club, if they have suggestions around genres we should read. I tend to really love historical fiction and contemporary fiction, but there are so many genres ― mysteries, sci-fi, romance novels ― so I am trying to be more democratic about the process and how I select books. I don’t have a precise way, I just read a book and if I enjoy it, I want to share it.

The two primary things are emerging authors, so people who have debut books. I am looking to build space for authors who may not get a lot of mainstream press and publicity. It’s kind of tied with popularity, what does everyone want to read right now? So everyone was excited about Swing Time. Zadie Smith will not be at the book club tomorrow [laughs], but it was such a popular book last year.

Have you ever considered working classics into the fold, or do you want to focus more on new books?

Well, this month, because it’s Black History Month, I’ve been doing additional events, because not everyone can come to the book club, and I do want us to be a space where everyone can participate. So I did something at the Brooklyn Museum, and we read Audre Lorde’s Sister Outsider. We had a massive turnout. It happened right after the Women’s March, so there were a lot of great conversations about, what were the benefits, and how can we be more mindful of including everyone’s voice when it comes to activism and protest. We used Lorde’s essay, “The Uses of Anger,” as a blueprint, looking at how to approach things when you’re frustrated and angry.

I am looking more at more academic presses, and what they’re publishing, especially post-election. It’s paramount for us to be aware of how to shape our activism. So I had a discussion with Dorothy E. Roberts at Strand last week ― it was the 20th anniversary of her book Killing the Black Body, a much heavier, more academic book. It really tied in well with everything that’s happening right now around reproductive justice. So I am being very conscious about the books and the conversations in the context of our larger political landscape, which originally was not a goal of mine. It was more of a leisurely entertainment space. But like most people, after November I saw a shift in my consciousness and what I wanted to put out publicly.

What are some of the forthcoming titles you’re excited to read?

Let me think. Oh ― oh, I mean: Roxane Gay. Come on. Roxane Gay’s Difficult Women, I’m absolutely obsessed with. I just started it. I just love her work, as an author, an activist, and just being so bold and outspoken. I haven’t had an opportunity to meet her, but just reading from Bad Feminist to Untamed State, her work is incredible. That’s something that’s on our horizon for the book club.

There’s also a book that I’ve talked about a couple of times, but it’s just so beautifully written. It’s called Whatever Happened to Interracial Love? by Kathleen Collins. She actually passed away several years ago, at around age 40. Her daughter found her journals and old writing samples, and pulled it together and made this book on behalf of her mother, and it’s absolutely riveting. Kathleen was also a filmmaker, so her stories are these really tight scenes, and you can visualize everything she’s writing. That’s also a book that we’re planning to read.

There’s a book called The Woman Next Door, by Yewande Omotoso. I just got that book, and it looks really good. The epigraph is this whole statement about walls, and if that is not timely, I don’t know what is.

Both of my parents are Nigerian and I’m first generation, so I have a fondness for Nigerian writers. There’s an author, Ayobami Adebayo, her book is called Stay With Me, and this is her debut book. It’s about the political turbulence in the 1980s in Nigeria. Both of my parents were in this war ― it was our Civil War; Chimamanda Adichie has written about it. Jesmyn Ward is coming out with a new book in September, Sing, Unburied, Sing. She’s amazing ― Salvage the Bones, what? She’s on my dream list of people to meet and interview.

Stephen Colbert Delivers Scathing Critique Of Steve Bannon Over Terrorism List

Stephen Colbert had sharp words of criticism for the Trump administration’s claim that major media outlets underreport terrorism as it produced a list of 78 violent attacks. (”No. 5 will shock you.”)

In a segment on Tuesday’s “Late Show,” host Colbert brought up a point that had been repeated by many reporters hours earlier ― many of the attacks had actually generated extensive coverage, like those in San Bernadino, Orlando, Paris and Nice.

The administration’s list was troublesome in one other way, too. It’s “loaded with typos, like ‘attaker’ instead of ‘attacker’ and ‘Denmakr’ instead of ‘Denmark,’” Colbert said. 

“So, at least we know Steve Bannon isn’t a grammar Nazi.”

Ba-boom. (See the clip above.)

Bannon, of course, has come under intense fire for his website Breitbart News, which has been a magnet for white supremacists, misogynists and anti-Muslim audiences. His position as one of President Trump’s top advisers has sparked questions over how much power he actually wields, and what he’ll do with it. Punishing interns who don’t spell-check White House memos is one thing we can cross off the list.

Anna Wintour, Anya Hindmarch, Victoria Beckham Recognized in Queen’s New Year Honor’s List

ROYAL RECOGNITION: Queen Elizabeth II has released her annual New Year honor’s list, with names including Anna Wintour, Anya Hindmarch and Victoria Beckham set to receive accolades in the coming year.
Wintour, the British-born, U.S.-based editor of Vogue and Condé Nast artistic director will be named Dame Commander of the Order of the British Empire or DBE, for her services in the fashion and journalism industries. She joins women including Vivienne Westwood, Judi Dench, Maggie Smith, Zandra Rhodes and Natalie Massenet.
The DBE will be Wintour’s second honor, as she was named OBE, or Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, in 2008. The Queen’s cabinet office noted that this second, higher accolade recognizes Wintour’s ongoing contribution to the fashion industry, and her help for emerging designers.
“Anna Wintour has been a tireless advocate for established and emerging designers. In the U.K. alone, she has promoted the careers of such talents as Sarah Burton, John Galliano, Christopher Bailey, Erdem Moralioglu and Christopher Kane,” said a spokesman for the Cabinet Office, the corporate headquarters of the British government.
Hindmarch is being recognized for her services to fashion and will be named Commander of the Order of the British Empire, or CBE. Hindmarch also

Victoria Beckham to Be Named in the Queen’s Honors List

ROYAL ACCOLADE: Although Queen Elizabeth’s annual New Year’s honors list is yet to be released, it appears one person is already planning her visit to Buckingham Palace.
According to the Daily Mail, Victoria Beckham will be named an Officer of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire, or OBE, in the Queen’s New Year’s honors list, which is set to be released on Saturday.
According to the British tabloid, the British designer revealed the news to her family over the Christmas holiday, saying that she is “delighted and humbled for the recognition.” The honor recognizes Beckham’s contributions to the British economy and to charity.
The designer’s husband, David Beckham was handed an OBE 13 years ago for his services to British sport.
A spokesperson for Beckham did not return requests for comment.

The honor would be the culmination of a successful year for Beckham, who launched her first makeup collection in partnership with Estée Lauder last September and watched it fly off the shelves.
As reported last month, she is set to release a second cosmetics capsule collection with Lauder in the new year, as well as a skincare line with a niche beauty partner.

How to Ditch your To Do List this Holiday Season and Gift yourself Instant Joy.

It’s December. Most likely you have a To Do List that resembles a Horror Movie.

You’re not alone.

I have deeply meaningful work. Connecting women with their purpose, creating art with clients. You might think I’ve got my act together, but my December To Do List reads like a message from hell. It’s not pretty.

Fortunately I know a swift way out of the darkness. It requires five minutes of your time, a sheet of paper and some pencils.

December is that Special Month that encapsulates family, happiness, holiday time, entrepreneurial and job actions and the hope that the year to come will be a breeze.

Dear Santa, give me more fun and less stress.

So, we create a list that contains everything we didn’t manage to finish in 2016. We desperately want to start afresh in the next year. And what better way to do that than work yourself silly?

We smartly divide The List into Work, Family and the dreaded: Miscellaneous.

That is just smart talk for a bottomless sink containing the Facebook ads you have to create without falling to pieces or calling your friend — who you should have called in May — but you remember this while brushing your teeth in the evening. Causing a chain reaction starting with: “Oh my God! I’ve got so much to do. I shouldn’t be allowed to go to bed” to “Why oh why, can’t I be more organized!” ending in “My life will never change, I’m a mess and I deserve to feel like shit.”

Result: a lot of frantic midnight typing on your smart phone until 3 in the morning.

All the while you think you can hear the stacks of unpaid bills and the unfinished tax papers moaning and bitching about you in your closet. „Argh, isn’t she horrible. We’re overdue. Pay us already. I’m just soooo ashamed.

You have to visit your sick father, spend a picture perfect day with your kids, buy tickets for the exhibition you-cannot-miss!, look visibly successful. Cook a super healthy meal and host a night for your fellow Kick-Ass Entrepreneurs.

And that Bloody List refuses to shrink!

Instead, it grows…. and grows and grows. Our To do List is ridden with guilt, shame and fear. The List ensures we will never feel good enough.

Seriously?

It’s almost 2017! Are we still giving permission to be frowned upon and belittled by a stupid To Do List?

The reason we made the list in the first place is the promise that — once the list is empty –, happiness and joy awaits.

But that bloody list is just exactly the same as the umpteenth diet that promises happiness as soon as you’ve lost the dreaded 15 pounds.

Until then… Suffer first baby! Gratification is only for the go-getters.

The List promises you that happiness is conditional. That contentment is something you need to deserve. The List says: “You are only deserving of joy when you cleared me out, solved the puzzles, did the phone calls, paid the bills and finished your website. Until than I will punish you with shame and fear.

Enough already. Be a rebel. Don’t wait for fulfillment until the list is done

Get it now.

This is the simple part. You are the Boss of The List. Never the other way around. Proof it by creating your art.

I know! How crazy simple can it be!? Here’s proof. And if you don’t belief me science is with me on this one.

2016-12-13-1481640018-535884-IMG_6484.JPG

Last Sunday I picked up my List.

My Number One Task: cleaning the bedroom.

Which is short for: clear the Himalayan sized mountain of dresses, socks and skirts, clean the damn place, tidy the closets. It was enough work to keep me occupied for the entire Sunday.

I could feel the resistance. The tiredness. Fear — I will not finish it anyway — racing through my body. Tight muscles. Set jaw. I was about to spend my precious free hours cleaning.

Finish the List!

But than I didn’t. I longed for instant happiness, for air, for love, color. I needed joy.

I graved lightness. Not in 2017. I wanted to Be Happy Now.

I picked up my pencils and paper. And I drew. I could here deep sighs. I could feel my body relaxing. As if the huge dragon on my shoulders decided to bother someone else. I felt instantly light and loved. I felt seen. I was touched. I felt more alive than the entire week before.

2016-12-13-1481639893-2648217-IMG_6497.JPG

Yes, I can hear you say: „So that’s your solution!? That’s easy for you to say. I can’t draw! I suck at art. I don’t even own a pencil. I never touched a sketchbook since Ms Smith in Third Grade told me a Cat is not supposed to have 1 ear and two tails.

I’ll let you in on a secret. It’s not about the result. It’s about the process. The magic happens when you draw a line or mix blue with red. Lightness starts when you color a small circle bright yellow.

I can also hear you mumble: “I don’t have the time for this.”

But here’s the thing. You DO have time. Five minutes of your time. Time you otherwise would use to watch another Netflix series. Or checking how many likes your Facebook post has.

There is no more to it than that. Art heals stress. It provides — those willing to listen — with profoundly meaningful answers. Creating art is more than a A Silly Hobby. It’s a Game Changer. A life Saver. It bring you instant joy.

THIS IS A SIMPLE JOY ENERGIZER- FOLLOW MY LEAD

  1. Sit down. Pick up a pencil and a sheet of paper.
  2. Breathe…
  3. Feel the tension in your body. Listen to the voices in your mind.
  4. Ask. Silently or out loud: “What do I need right now?
  5. Don’t get into thinking mode. The first thing that springs to mind is what you need.
  6. Now listen. Don’t interfere. “Pick up the blue pencil. Draw a line. Breathe.
  7. Keep drawing for at least 5 minutes. If you find this difficult. Listen to music and follow the notes.

Don’t wait for happiness. Pick up a pencil. Do it now!

Draw a cat with one ear and two tails. Smile. Enjoy the calm space your create. Breathe…

And if you can’t find an empty sheet of paper there’s always a To Do List in need of some color and joy.

Stephen Colbert Drops The Mic On Trump’s List Of Enemies

He’s making a list, checking it twice, gonna find out who’s a nasty woman or nice.

In another lengthy segment on Donald Trump, “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert addressed the Trump campaign’s supposed list of enemies on Thursday.

“They went from zero to Nixon in no time flat,” said Colbert.

After playing a clip of the campaign’s director of African-American outreach, Omarosa Manigault, saying, “Every critic, every detractor will have to bow down to President Trump,” bow is exactly what Colbert did.

“It was Sam Bee and Seth Meyers! They’re the ones who said all those horrible things about you. I was just joking the whole time. All hail our glorious leader! Giant hands! You’ve got giant hands! You’re gonna be great!” said Colbert before adding, “Is what a pussy would say.”

The audience lost it and started chanting Colbert’s name. Though, they were probably just relieved he wasn’t actually saying those things. If he were, a certain someone might just try to grab him.

Diane Kruger Releases the Martell France 300 List

GOOD SPIRITS: Joseph Altuzarra, Patrick Demarchelier and Camille Rowe-Pourcheresse figure on this year’s Martell France 300 List, which ranks French and France-inspired talents in fashion, the arts, gastronomy, mixology and entertainment. The project was spearheaded by Diane Kruger, the cognac house’s ambassador.
“Having spent much of my time living in France and working with so many great talents, it is so wonderful to work on a project that gives people some well-deserved recognition and shows how they are having an impact on French culture on an international scale,” said Kruger, who was signed on by Martell in April to front the label during its tercentenary year.
Other fashion talents on the France 300 list include Garance Doré, Alix Petit, Constance Jablonski, Edouard Roschi, Fabrice Penot, Fabien Baron, François Nars, Julia Restoin Roitfeld and Pascale Mussart.
As part of the project, the spirits-maker conducted research globally on the influence of French lifestyle. Eighty-one percent of the 6,521 people surveyed in 10 markets said that French lifestyle has significantly influenced their own way of life. In fashion, the inspiring attributes were elegance, couture, jewelry, handbags and creative fashion.

A Comprehensive List Of Taylor Swift’s ‘1989’ Tour Guests So Far

Forget “My Little Pony” — Taylor Swift’s special-guest roster on her “1989” tour proves friendship is magic.

Thanks to Instagram and Twitter, the celebrities and musicians she invites on stage each night have become as expected as her shiny outfits and smooth backup dancers. In the beginning, Swift’s invitees were slightly more expected: ladies from her much-‘grammed crew, or musical acts that could use Swift’s star power to reach a bigger audience. 

But when unexpected, er, friends started to pop up — the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team? Joan Baez?? Kobe Bryant??? — it was hard to keep track of just how many famous faces graced the many stadiums Swift set foot in. Here’s a list of all the celeb cameos we’ve seen on the “1989” tour as of Monday. (A * denotes that they sang, too.)

  • Gigi Hadid (Detroit, London, East Rutherford)
  • Martha Hunt (Detroit, London)
  • Dan Reynolds, Imagine Dragons* (Detroit)
  • Little Big Town* (Pittsburgh)
  • Cara Delevingne (Philadelphia, London)
  • Mariska Hargitay (Philadelphia)

A photo posted by Taylor Swift (@taylorswift) on

  • Nick Jonas* (East Rutherford)
  • Lily Aldridge (East Rutherford)
  • Candice Swanepoel (East Rutherford)
  • Uzo Aduba (East Rutherford, Los Angeles*)
  • Behati Prinsloo (East Rutherford)
  • Lena Dunham (East Rutherford)
  • Hailee Steinfeld (East Rutherford)

  • Ryan Tedder, OneRepublic* (Los Angeles)
  • Mary J. Blige (Los Angeles)
  • Sean O’Pry (Los Angeles)
  • Chris Rock (Los Angeles)
  • Matt LeBlanc (Los Angeles)

With three more shows in LA this week, followed by San Diego, Salt Lake City, Denver, and St. Paul — to name just a few — we’re sure this list will become much longer before the year’s end. And we say, the more, the merrier. But if Swift finds that there is simply no one left in Hollywood to invite, we here at The Huffington Post would gladly step up to the plate. Just sayin’.

Playboy Names America’s 25 Sexiest Cities, New York Tops The List

Forget the best cities in the country. Playboy magazine released its list ranking America’s 25 Sexiest Cities on Wednesday and we’re already contemplating a move.  

According to the magazine, the list was determined by two separate polls that looked at metrics including nightlife, general lifestyle habits and “an undercurrent of desire.” So it’s not exactly scientific.

New York City ranked #1 on the list, mainly because its residents were into “kinky” things and a LOT of sex. “The people are hot, the sex is prime quality and the frequency is high, averaging 138 times per year,” wrote Playboy. Considering NYC has the Museum of Sex and a topless book club, we have to agree with the ranking. 

Scroll down to look at the cities that made the top 10 and head over to Playboy to see the rest:
