How Much Sex Are Millennials Having? Not As Much As You Think
August 3, 2015 by Justin Lehmiller
Millennials are often referred to as “the hookup generation,” with popular media portrayals characterizing them as constantly jumping from one hook-up to the next and rejecting traditional notions of dating and marriage. In stark contrast to these depictions, however, scientific research on millennials’ sexual attitudes and behaviors paints a very different picture. Compared to generations past, millennials aren’t having as much sex as you think. Also, it turns out that millennials actually hold fairly conflicted views on the morality of hooking-up. For a closer look at the research in this area, check out my latest article over at Playboy.
