Sexual revolution has taken whole of the West, and most minds of East. Do you think that religious teachings are no more relevant, or that we don't wish to follow them? What is the reason behind change in thinking.

I don't think that the two need be linked. Granted, some 'Religions' make it a sin to have some kinds of intimate contact, out of wedlock, but others do not address it.
I think a person can choose, today, what they believe, and many follow what they were raised with.
I believe that in Western culture there is a good reason for people to understand the basics of the Judeo-Christian basis, as it is pervasive throughout that society in the culture, art, movies, and mainstream.
That isn't to say that knowing, and having an understanding means a person is obligated to follow that!
Quite the contrary!! I was raised with those values, and I respect those, their beliefs, but they are not what I believe now.
I choose my own Way, and I choose what I like among many beliefs, and call that my own.
Sex is NOT a sin, in my belief, unless it is degrading, and hurting another.
Consensual loving, and intimacy, among willing partners is a wonderful thing, and nothing to be ashamed of or in any way, sinful.5

More freedom, more information and with that a lack of fear regarding a spiritual afterlife. Religion is for controlling the populace but we have too much knowledge to accept it blindly now. Religion doesn't hold the answers or claimed to before we have science (now that religion has stopped trying to make it heracy).
Many have been liberated from religion by information and knowledge, this spreads to all sorts of places due to our increased mobility and communication.2
