American's Sex Habits Changing?
I'm getting a little confused here.  For years the media has been going on and on about how loose Americans regard sex.  If one didn't know better the US had entered a "Sodom and Gomorrah" phase, with loose morals abounding.  This has been going on for decades now, to the point where one would think that Americans had nothing but sex on the brain.

Suddenly, things have changed and now we aren't having enough sex.   Shock

Quote:No More 'Netflix And Chill'? Record Number Of Americans Not Having Sex

A new study published by the Washington Post has found that record numbers of Americans are not having sex, based on data compiled by the General Social Survey, which has collected and maintained opinion and experience data on US residents since the National Opinion Research Center at the University of Chicago began the survey in 1972.

But the most shocking aspect to the study is the evidence revealing a rampant lack of gen-Z and millennial sex. Or perhaps this might not be so surprising, given the rise of online gaming as a near obsession among younger demographics, phenomena like Netflix binge watching, and fewer young men entering the work force.

The analysis found that 23% of American adults reported having no sex in the past year, or almost 1 in 4, according to the report.

In decades prior to the 2000's the percentage of those reporting no sex was generally at a steady level, represented for example in 1989 at 19%.

To put things in perspective, in 2008 that figure dipped to about 9%, which means over merely the past decade the number of those regularly not getting any swelled by nearly triple.
