There was a time when people believed that all men could think about was s ex. However, the latest statistics from the University of Chicago’s biennial General Social Survey (GSS) revealed that men aren’t having as much s ex as they used to.
While it’s easier than ever to find a hook-up online or on a dating app, abstinence appears to be at an all-time high. What’s the reason for such a sad conclusion? Scientists believe this could be caused by spending a lot of time streaming, playing video games, and scrolling through social media feeds.
The data revealed that an average of 23 percent of Millennials aged 18 to 30 said they hadn’t had s ex in the past year, and what’s more is that the number of men under 30 who reported not having s ex rose from 10 percent in 2008 to 28 percent in 2018, meaning it nearly tripled.
Jean Twenge, a professor of psychology at San Diego State University, believes this is because many millennials don’t live together.
“There are more people in their twenties who don’t have a live-in partner. So under those circumstances, I think less s ex is going to happen…
When you’re living at home, it’s probably harder to bring s exual partners into your bedroom.”
Twenge also believes that the rise in technology could also be a major factor as to why young men are not indulging in s exual activities as often. She further added, “(There are) more things to do at 10 o’clock at night than there were 20 years ago.” She explained people could be swapping s ex in favor of “streaming video, social media, console games” and “everything else.”
René Bautista, a senior research scientist in the Statistics and Methodology department at the National Opinion Research Center (NORC) and co-director of the GSS, said:
“Other special topics addressed in the 2018 data include mental health stigma, the quality of working life, attitudes regarding abortions, self-assessments of physical and psychological health, and the role of the natural environment in people’s lives.”
