(Newser) – Americans may ogle the celebrities gracing the covers of gossip mags, but firefighter remains the sexiest job title on the books, the Boston Globe reports. Personal trainer comes in a close second, according to's Valentine's Day survey. It's the site's first such survey in three years, and though the top spot didn't change, there was movement down the list.

Flight attendant was considered the second-sexiest job in '05, but didn't even make the list this time, having been muscled out by personal trainer. Reporter, fourth last time, is also off the list, as were interior designer and teacher—whose spots were taken by surgeon and cowboy. But evidently, money still works like a charm: CEO placed third in both surveys.
