XXXtra, XXXtra: The 2013 Sex Survey 

We already knew some Vermonters were kinky — when we last conducted this survey, in 2011, more than a third of our respondents copped to having sex with vegetables. Local ones, we presume. But early last month, we learned that denizens of the Green Mountain State are doin’ it right, too: In a study by the Center for Sexual Pleasure and Health, Vermont ranked No. 1 in the nation for sexual health.

That study looked at factors such as sexually transmitted disease rates, teen births and sexual violence. Vermont scored points for marriage equality and access to abortion and emergency birth control. It rocketed to the top thanks to the state’s AIDS and cervical cancer rates, which are the lowest in the country. Awesome.

Our survey takes a more prying tack. We set out to discover who turns you on and what makes you squirm — and boy, did you deliver! You told us about making creative use of wooden spoons. You shared your fantasies featuring Viking longships and Freddie Mercury. You surprised us with your willingness to turn infidelity into ménage à trois.

Congrats, Vermonters. Not only are most of you in exemplary sexual health, you’re also raunchy as hell.

    On Seven Days' Love and Marriage Issue cover this week, we asked readers to draft a letter — Mad Lib-style — to their Valentine. This kind of creative writing requires a pair: One asking for parts of speech, the other dreaming up the answers. If you're playing solitaire, though, here's a whiz-bang generator.
