During this time of year (you know, Valentine's Day), it seems like heart-shaped boxes, chocolate and roses are everywhere. It's nearly impossible to escape the feelings of warmth associated with the love-centric holiday. But with this issue of Creative Loafing, we hope to elicit a different kind of warm feeling — as we bring you the 2011 Lust List, our annual salute to the city's sexiest citizens.
This year's special edition features eight of the hottest men and women (from students to bartenders) in Charlotte, nominated by our dear readers and scouted out by our eager (maybe too eager?) staff.
Read on to discover where this sultry lot likes to hang out, whether they think sexting is a bad idea and more.
