Well duh! Who wants to have sex with masculine women or effeminate men!?

could be one of their many angst-filled problems but at least these brainless wonders will extinguish their kind soon enough.

The evidence is in - Americans born in the '80s and '90s are less likely to be having sex than their parents who were born in the '60s and '70s.

In fact, kids today are having less sex than any other generation since the 1920s – a time when 5 percent of the global population had been killed off by the Spanish flu.

Although it goes against the stereotypes of millennials having easy access to sex from apps like Tinder, honestly… we probably should have seen the signs.

Pokémon Go is now way more popular then Tinder, and teen pregnancy rates are dropping every year. Combine that with easy access to porn and young people living at home for longer, and the results of this study start to make a bit more sense.

Sorry sunny but sex wan't taboo in the 60s either. Millennials are just too used to having someone else do everything for them so sex is just one more thing they expect their parents to do.

It was reported yesterday that Millennial men aged between, I think, 18 and 34 are physically weaker than men of the same age group in 1985.

Doesn't take much muscle power to hold a cellphone or play an xbox.

Or to grow a beard, style your hair into a Man Bun, eat mung beans and hold a placard in an anti-Brexit demonstration.

The millennial (what's with that label anyway?) has been rendered 'thinkless' and incapable of honest , forthright emotions by parents who birth them and then immediately abandon them to strangers, to an education system set up to make life easier for the teachers than to teach the kids know what they need to know to succeed in life.
All they need now is the ability to click on a key. They don't need friends because they have computer games. They don't need family because they've never really had one and don't know what 'family' means anymore.
I pity them!

Maybe it's because nobody is listening to Marvin Gaye's Sexual Healing anymore, so they're not getting that feeling. I, for one, have been doing my bit to try and get millennial numbers up. Maybe it's because there are so many Lesbians and Traps prancing around these days so now it's hard to tell who is really who until you get them between the sheets.

How is having less babies a good thing? Hopefully you haven't had any kids yet because it would be a bad thing if you did.

I meant in terms of population, resources, etc.

This is what immigration is for.

You just contradicted yourself. You said having fewer babies a good thing when it comes population, resources etc. So how does immigration NOT affect those things?

A general called a staff meeting and asked his subordinate officers if sex was work or pleasure. For 45 minutes, his officers made their views known, in an attempt to win the general's favour. No clear winner emerged by coffee break.

The general decided to get a coffee and saw a private minding the table, handing out cups and offering donuts. He thought, what the hell, I'll ask the private if he feels sex is work or pleasure. This was the private's response.

"Well sir, it's definitely pleasure. No question. If it was work, one of you would have ordered me to do it!"

While much of the world has experienced declining fertility rates over the last twenty years, the total fertility rate in the United States has remained relatively stable in comparison.[37] This is largely due to the high fertility rate among communities such as Hispanics, but it is also because the fertility rate among non-Hispanic whites in the US, after falling to about 1.6 in the 1970s and early 1980s, had increased and is now around 1.89 rather than lower to the 1.6 level common in Europe. It can also be explained by a substantial immigration.

No it wasn't taboo in the '60s.
Kids were taught that sex was an adult activity and there were responsibilities attached to it.
Kids experimented at their own risk. They had to pay consequences for their actions. Single mother/fatherhood was not acceptable in society. But there was no epidemic of STDs then.
Young single girls who got pregnant either married or 'went away' for a while and gave their babies up for adoption.


It was good. We didn't have kids raising kids. Illegitimate babies ended up with real loving adopted families instead of being unwanted , neglected and abused by irresponsible teenage mothers. Society didn't have to pay the costs of supporting welfare mothers.


Yes, it was good compared to what happens today!

Good one! Thank you for the laugh.
How about the old Ann Landers tale;
In a lecture on sex the lecturer asked, "how many of you would rather go bowling that stay home and have sex with your wife?"
One participant answered, "I have a neighbour who would rather go bowling so when he goes bowling I stay home and have sex with his wife".

There was still a significant number of orthodox religious people in Western society at that time and they condemned sex before marriage.

Maybe just maybe Millennials see it as unorthodox as well?

And how do they know this? Firstly, people can lie.
Secondly, researches can't spy on people in the privacy of their bedrooms (or not legally or ethically anyway).
Thirdly, even if they coudl legally spy, they wouldn't have the resources to do so.

Of course it may be true that millennials are having less sex, but to pretend that anyone knows to any degree of certainty seems far fetched to me.

There still are some who condemn sex before marriage. But most commonly, in the 60's it was disapproved of and discouraged before marriage. Different from 'condemned'!


Young people now take sexual activity for granted. It's a fun date like in the 60's a movie and a coke and fries was a fun date.
Lasting relationship are not built on sex. That's why most relationships today don't last.


B
oys used to respect girls and didn't marry girls who had 'been around the block' sexually. Now boys seem to use girls with no respect at all.
Girls seem to think sex on a date is expected of them and give it out indiscriminately. Then they wonder why boys treat them like dog sh-t.

What kind of people are raising these kids?

Save more what? Contraceptives trump your stupid statement.

Even if you are a 1%er you get paid the same amount as a welfare mom for having kids but with tax credit incentives that a welfare mom doesn't qualify for.
