Why young people prefer to have less sex under the sheets, according to a study. There are several reasons that lead young people not to be interested in intimate encounters, which began to attract attention because young people coincided when holding conversations with friends.

For this reason, some specialists dedicated themselves to confirming it. According to an investigation carried out in the United States, which was published on the Magnet portal, one in three young Americans between the ages of 18 and 24 have never had an encounter or their intimate activity is almost nil.

That is, 30.9 percent compared to 18.9 percent registered between 2000 and 2002. This idea became generalized to such a degree in the conversations of young people that it was therefore decided to carry out an investigation on the matter. Which has been surprising.

Among the reasons that young people argue is the presence of the health emergency, social networks, disappointment with apps to find your better half and current complications.


This is in stark contrast to early millennials and all of generation x(immediately before millennials) who they had intimate encounters twice than later generations, especially Z. But the most shocking thing is that the data is not so much generational, but circumstantial.

In this situation, it can be said that youth is less active than the population that did it at the beginning of the century; despite the fact that in previous decades the fear of not having as much information on intimately transmitted diseases, such as AIDS, was much more pervasive.

Between the reasons What the study published in Magnet points out is that the drop in encounters under the sheets is linked to the drop in the consumption of alcohol, tobacco and other substances. According to the research, habitual alcohol consumption went from 80 percent of young people in 1991 to 60 percent in 2017.

While that of tobacco from 70 percent to 39 percent and that of other substances from 24 percent to 19 percent. To this must be added that the 53 percent of young people under the age of 30 live with their parents.

Another reason that could explain this decrease could be related to mental health problems. Today’s youth face job insecurity, high prices for products or rents. In addition, the health emergency, in some cases, has increased cases of anxiety or depression, common symptoms to lose the desire to be intimate.
