Why Sex Is Not A Big Priority For Millennial Anymore?

Since the arrival of dating apps like Tinder, Truly Madly, Bumble, Chaturbate(haha, you know about it, you should) etc, a potential sexual partner is never more than a swipe away, you could be forgiven for thinking millennial are at it like sexually frustrated animals who just want to do it. For those who don’t know what millennial meaning, it means “a person reaching young adulthood around the year 2000”. We’ve been dubbed the hook-up generation, who are open to the idea of casual sex and love it so much.
However, a new study has found that younger generations – predominantly those born in the early 1990s – are having much less sex than previous generations did when they were in their 20’s. Haha now when your father says- they are the one who ‘enjoyed’ their life more than you, you have to believe it. He is right after all!
Study revealed that, 15 percent of 20- to 24-year-olds haven’t done the deed since the age of 18, compared to only six percent of Generation X-ers when they were the same age. Match.com found that less than seven percent of people in their 20s have sex two to five times per week and 49 percent of twenty something’s hadn’t had sex at all in the past year.
One of the main reason behind less sex among teenagers is today’s young people are well-educated about sexually transmitted infections, porn is never more than a few clicks away, we don’t need sex to entertain us thanks to the likes of Game of Thrones (seriously it’s a porno with awesome storylines) and social media Facebook is here, and the majority of us still live with our parents, in India particular so no one wants to meet the parents that quickly.
Men don’t have girlfriends, but they might hook up and hang out with a girl for a while, before having sex with her, The thing is casual sex is not so easy as you think, as for more personal experience it’s true casual sex is a thing in India too but it’s not like one night stand, at one point you’ll eventually grow some feelings for the person whom you’ve had bedded with. No wonder millennia’s are more discerning about who they jump into bed with.
It all boils down to the fact that those who are in there twenties has so much thing do to they have to rent a room in a flat then move elsewhere after six months, take on internships not knowing how we’ll pay the aforementioned rent when internship period over, and spend our lives worrying about statistics so sex is not a priority for most young adults.
The sexual attitudes of today’s millennia’s may not match the swinging sexual passionate lovers of nineties young adults, but just like flares and beehives, perhaps some things are better left in the past. They have so many things to do and sex is not in top of the bucket list, although once in a while it’s a good practice.
