Floridians have been called every name.
Crazy. Crackers. Loco. Too stupid to vote correctly. Blue hairs. Rednecks. Carpetbaggers. Half-baked. In the sun too long.
They say we live in a Banana Republic.
Call us anything you'd like.
However, never ever call us sexually unadventurous.
Even our Governor.
Governor Rick Scott gave out the state’s information hot line for a deadly meningitis outbreak last October.
It turned out to be a hot hot hotline: Scott was one digit off, providing the state's citizen's an opportunity to hear the low purr of a woman’s voice offering to talk dirty.
We often go where no man -- or woman -- goes, sexually speaking.
Don't believe this?
Well, just consider FloriDUH 's Sexapalooza 2012 top picks of sex gone south.
Driving Florida's highways are never boring, despite the flat landscape and endless billboards. But, if your traveling with kids in the car, better take along a pair of blinders.
- Ocala: Woman wearing only pink shirt accused of performing sex and exposing herself to motorists before giving arresting officer “love tap”
- Pompano Beach: Woman accused of exposing her entire body at street intersection
Talk about distracted drivers ...guess sexting and texting while driving are the least of our worries.

- Spring Hill: Naked, jealous swingers duke it out at orgy, deputies say.
- Vero Beach: Wife enraged at hubby's request to 'use the bed' -- with another woman. This couple was married only 5-months.
Floridians insist the best of everything, including sex. Or there could be a price to pay.
Some like it hot; but Floridians like it freaky.
A day at the beach sure isn't like it used to be.
- Bonita Beach Perv alert: Suspected noisy beach masturbator busted.
- Sanibel: Two dudes busted for having sex on the beach. Real sex, not the drink.

- Nokomis: Couple caught having sex on picnic table in park. Man allegedly told the deputy that he knew he shouldn't have had sex in the park but added "she really wanted it," according to the arrest report.
Some Floridians don't need a date, they prefer going solo when in public:

Multiple lovers can lead to confusion.
- Port St. Lucie: Olive oil during sex rubbed woman the wrong
- Girlfriend asked her lover to get the olive oil from the kitchen to use as a "sexual lubricant" — and then also asked him if he had brought the PAM.
