Not basic instinct: why young people stopped loving sex. Part1

It is believed that young people as a result of increased hormonal activity constantly think about sex. However, recent scientists` research destroys this myth: the representatives of generation born in the 1990s show more indifference to these "ridiculous body movements." According to the statistics, they became much less likely to have sex than their predecessors. What are the reasons for this seemingly unnatural phenomenon?

Scientists from several US universities conducted a study of the intimate life of the youth. It turned out that the Americans who were born in the 1990s (Generation Y), have less active sex life compared to older generations. 15% of respondents aged 20-24 said that they did not have sexual intercourse after adulthood (and perhaps before), while at the same age this admitted only 6% of those born in the 1960s.

A similar trend is observed in Japan. Japanese youth are refusing en masse to go on dates, get married and even have sex. This phenomenon is called "celibacy syndrome". According to statistics, a third of young people less than 30 years never had a romantic relationship, and one in four is still a virgin. Moreover, even couples particularly are not interested in sex: according to a study conducted in 2014, almost half of them (44.6%) admitted that they do not have sex at all. On average, Japanese people come into intimate relations 45 times a year.

Scientists from the University of Hamburg got similar results. It turned out that the Germans began to have sex three times less often than 30 years ago. If in 1980 they had 18-20 sex acts per month, but now they have 1-8. Similar data provided by scientists from the University of Cambridge, saying that the British might lose all interest in sex by 2030.

It is believed that the threshold of adulthood in society has shifted. Due to economic crises young generation longer live with their parents, which creates some barriers to sexual life. In addition, despite the fact that modern society is comfortable with the sexual intercourse outside of marriage, most people find regular sexual partner in their legal spouse. However, young people are not in a hurry to marry. As of 2014 only 26% of people aged 18-32 years had ever been in institutionalized relations. At the same age stamp in the passport had 36% of their parents' generation and 48% of their grandparents. 1990`s generation perceive sex and marriage as an attribute of adult life, which can wait.

Also, according to scientists, technological progress affects negatively in the personal life of young people. Some specialists say that the nature of communication has become asexual. Young people no longer spend time alone with each other, with them there is always someone else, namely electronic gadgets. Modern person began to experience more pleasure from the popular TV series, video games and the Internet communication in some free chat, than from sex.
