SEX FORUM Teens are jumping onto Net instead of into bed
YOUNG people are shagging less because of the internet.
A shocking study has revealed that modern teens are bonking less than other generations were at the same age because of advances in technology.
Millennials born in the 1990s, now aged 20-24, are bedding each other LESS than the so-called Generation X – those born in the 60s and 70s.
The US study – from San Diego State University – quizzed 27,000 people and discovered that more teens are finding other ways of spending their time.
A shocking 15 per cent of Millennials have had no sexual partners since turning 18, compared to just 6% of Generation X.
Another interesting figure shows that in 1991 around 51% of high school students said they had lost their virginity, but in 2015 it had dropped to 41%.
Busty Beth Simmonds revealed she was surprised at the results and confessed that her friendship group never stops shagging.
She said: “If these results are true, then older generations must have been going at it non stop. It’s true that young people spend a lot of time online but they are still interacting with people and, trust me, they are still hooking up.”
Professor Jean Twenge believes the internet is stopping people living in the real world.
And she warned that if they totally stop having sex it could cause relationship issues in the future.
She said: “Technology may mean that young people are spending so much time online that they interact less in person and thus don’t have sex.
“If young adults forgo sex completely, they may be missing out on some of the advantages of an adult romantic relationship.”
