According to a recent study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, Millennials are actually having less sex than their generational counterparts.
The survey, conducted over 12 years and amassing data from over 30,000 participants, found that although Millennials are having less sex, they are more tolerant and are having a higher number of sexual partners before marriage.
The study also indicated:
- 58 percent of respondents between 2010 and 2012 believed premarital sex among adults was "not wrong at all."
- This number is much higher compared to 29 percent in the early 1970s, 42 percent in the 80s and 90s, and 49 percent in the 2000s.
Data from Time Magazine said that Millennials have an average of eight sexual partners in their lifetimes. Between 1940 and 1970, this number remained at a steady 10 partners.
Who actually has more sex today?
- A recent survey found that those who bike to work have better sex lives than those who drive or walk. 39 percent of respondents claim exercise gives them more energy in the bedroom.
- Women that are more relaxed in sexual situations are more apt to orgasm.
- Women with larger hips are more likely to have more sexual partners and are more likely to have one-night stands.
The amount of sex you have can depend on many factors including overall health, libido and desire. There is no wrong or right amount of sex to have, as long as both you and your partner are satisfied.
Besides satisfaction, the number one thing to strive for when it comes to sex is protection. Even if Millennials are having less sex, the steps taken to protect yourself and your partner should remain the same.
