Northampton is one of the UK’s to top hook-up hotspots where punters pay for sex


Northampton has featured in a national league table of the UK’s ‘hook-up hotspots’ which has revealed the towns and cities where bed-hopping Brits are most likely to seek out sex with escorts.

The research has identified the places where punters are most likely to book in for a steamy behind-closed-doors session to escape the turmoil of 2020.

The poll, commissioned by specialist agency SexScort, ranks destinations by the total number of bookings made with escorts since January this year.

Unsurprisingly, London had the most bookings with 3,337 recorded in the capital alone this year. Birmingham followed in second place with 367 appointments while Northampton was a shock inclusion in third place, with kinky residents already booking in for 346 illicit encounters.

Chief Executive of SexScort Frank Dethridge said: “Amid the doom and gloom that COVID-19 has brought with it, we’re thrilled that people are choosing to use SexScort to fulfil their sexual needs or just seek a bit of company.

“We were amazed that Northampton, which is the 24th largest town in the UK and has a population of nearly 230,000, came in third place. It just goes to show you can never predict sexual appetite.

“We’re working hard to break down the taboos commonly associated with the sex industry. By having these open and transparent conversations about sex services we can help improve working conditions, ensuring staff and customers are as safe as they can be.”

Northampton is best known for its once-thriving shoe industry and its Premiership rugby team, but horny residents are now staking a claim to be the busiest between the sheets in Britain – putting the town on the map as the nation’s ‘capital of kink’.

The East Midlands town – the setting for the Kinky Boots film and musical – was ranked above the likes of Liverpool, Manchester, Leeds, Bristol and Nottingham in the list, while Glasgow was the only Scottish city to feature in the top 10.

SexScort allows escorts to advertise their services free of charge to potential clients. A small monthly administration fee ensures the customer has regular access to the site and if services are booked, the escorts are paid directly.

SexScort vets each and every client thoroughly to ensure their contact details are legitimate, providing peace of mind to its portfolio of escorts and putting their safety before profit.
