SEX FO­RUM Teens are jump­ing onto Net in­stead of into bed

Midweek Sport - - SEX FORUM -

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.”
