A survey carried out by The Mirror asked every council in England and Wales how many registered sex venues they had in their district.

After counting up the number of sex shops, pornographic cinemas and intimate entertainment venues, they measured how many establishments there were per resident.

One of the most notorious locations listed is former red light district in Soho, which boasts a number of X-rated shops and showrooms.

This has no doubt affected the outcome of the results, as Westminster City Council revealed that they had 30 sex venues in the borough.

Staggeringly, while there is an average of around 130,000 sex shops per person in the UK, there is one for every 8,000 in Westminster.

This means that Westminster tops the list of the ?쐓leaziest??areas in England and Wales.

Research revealed that residents of Blackpool and Newcastle were the second and third areas with the most sexual establishments.

Other locations including Camden, Bournemouth and Preston also made the list.

The highest number of sexual establishments per혻resident…

1. Westminster – 30 (one for every 8,077 residents)

2. Blackpool – 6 (one for every 23,263 residents)
