At the same time, young adults are having their first sexual experience later, and having less sex in general. While in 1988, 60% of boys had had sex by the time they were 19, in 2010 that number was 42%, and overall, the number of sexually active 9th graders has dropped by almost half since the 1990s.
In iGen, professor of psychology Jean M. Twenge reports that “In fact, more young adults are not having sex at all”:
More than twice as many iGen’ers and late Millennials (those born in the 1990s) in their early twenties (16%) had not had sex at all since age 18 compared to GenX’ers at the same age (6%). A more sophisticated statistical analysis that included all adults and controlled for age and time period confirmed twice as many ‘adult virgins’ among those born in the 1990s than among those born in the 1960s. . . .
You don’t see the women complaining about it, wise enough to know you can’t shame a person for being clean and virtuous.
“Virgin pride” would mess with the postmodernists. That’d be funny.
Even with age controlled, GenX’ers born in the 1970s report having an average of 10.05 sexual partners in their lifetimes, whereas Millennials and iGen’ers born in the 1990s report having sex with 5.29 partners. So Millennials and iGen’ers, the generations known for quick, casual sex, are actually having sex with fewer people—five fewer, on average.
MSM…. lied to us?
[There are also fewer white people in the younger generations, so fewer options for white people.]
The phenomenon of this “sex recession” has been found not only in the United States, but in other developed countries as well.
Oh, how terrible, right?
“Demographic transition”, period of high-K coming.
It’s almost like the MGTOW rhetoric of wicked Lilith women/Never Marry is controlled ops to justify SJW controls on expression!
Odds are, their mother is sluttier than the thot they hate.
So Millenials’ and iGen’ers’ frugal, stable, “wholesome,” ways have wrought laudatory behaviors. As the sociologist David Finkelhor argued in an op-ed for The Washington Post, the younger generations are “showing virtues their elders lacked . . . We may look back on today’s youth as relatively virtuous, as the ones who turned the tide on impulsivity and indulgence.”
….and we may look back on you as evil and treasonous?
Anecdotally, she notes, young people seem to be feeling more inhibited about their naked bodies in general, and are even much more likely to change behind closed doors at the gym than older folks. We are surrounded by sex, yet our age feels strangely unsexy; we can explore sex without taboo, but don’t know how to be sensual.
Almost like someone’s trying to use porn as culture to suppress the urge to start a family.
50s women used to wear dresses because they were women, they didn’t want to ‘bone’ you.
Women have the same motive now to be feminine but porn-addled idiots reading into it, ruin it. There is no bait nor hook, our vag is not a Venus Flytrap. But if a Muslim rapes us, we get punished with a lecture about wearing a skirt as surely as if we were in Yemen. Is this The First World? The West is culturally dead by attire. Ghetto/rap/porn culture killed it. The 60s viewed mini-skirts as just …skirts, girlish even! Our crime is being white, the motive – evil, obviously. That’s why women are voting right-wing.
Like, you want girls to wear pearl necklaces, stop making the same dead joke. It isn’t funny. Porn culture puts women off. Don’t speak to normal women explicitly. It’s a rule of etiquette women are taught but no longer men. The same way gross-out female comedians piss you off, that’s the pearl necklace joke. No coincidence it’s conservative clothing they try to trigger disgust with. Like men as ‘hipsters’ for not being on display for gays.
At least in the 80s, men wore suits to clubs, women full dresses (I own some).
As Julian further observes, the fact that young people are having less sex may bespeak not only a decline in physical intimacy, but in the kind of emotional intimacy that leads to relationships of every kind.
Yeah looking at this hurts.
Love has become taboo.
