'More opportunities for sex' in London

Men flock to London for more than just the cosmopolitan lifestyle and higher salaries, it has been suggested.

Mayor of the city Boris Johnson noted males are drawn to the capital because of the greater number of lovely ladies to be found in its numerous nightspots.

Guys choosing to relocate to the Big Smoke may therefore want to make sure they have a healthy supply of condoms to ensure safety remains paramount as they hook up with more girls than they ever have before.

Mr Johnson, re-elected to the post of Mayor in May this year, told New York Magazine: "We seek cities because there are a greater range of girls at the bar, of reproductive choice."

The politician, who has been touring New York to promote his book Johnson's Life of London: The People Who Made The City That Made The World, also said people often head to major urban areas as they seek fame and fortune.
