Is our generation having less sex then our parents or grandparents generations?
Are we staying at home more? Is it the availability of porn?
I personally am shocked, I thought young people were having lots of sex especially due to hookup apps like Tinder and Grindr which makes it so much easier to meet people. And the changing of social attitudes towards sex (i.e. sex before marriage is more acceptable and less stigmatised, as well as same-sex sex).
What does everyone else think?
This topic really intrigues me! I listened to a great podcast that suggested the reason young people are having less sex (but also the rate of unwanted teenage pregnancies are waaayyyy lower than ever before) is because the availability of technology gives us those dopamine hits in the privacy of our own bedroom. Between porn and constant messaging, young people are less likely to leave their rooms to seek out thrilling activities, because at the end of the day, the chemical response in the brain is the exact same!! Scary, right?
