Have an opinion?
I think so, because despite the fact that a smaller number of people are having more sex than ever, I think a bigger number are having less than before (meaning: zero).50 years ago, almost everyone got married, and not all that many people had sex before marriage. But because almost everyone got married, what happened is that people tended to pair off with a member of the opposite sex that was more-or-less the same social value as themselves. If you were a 6, you probably married a 6. If you were a 3, you probably married a 3. If you were a 9, you probably married a 9. This forced people to be realistic about their partners, because there aren't that many single people available, and if someone was a 5, they had no chance at getting a 7 or 8 and they knew it - those people would hold out for another 7 or 8.Because marriage and relationships in general are much less common today, a lot of single people are unrealistic about their potential partners - you have 3s and 4s who are holding out for 8s and 9s that they're never going to get, and refusing to look at 3s and 4s of the opposite sex. And 5s and 6s who only want 9s and 10s. So, lots of people are staying single, and by extension, virgins, who would previously have gotten married and at least had a sex partner.Yes, casual sex is more common, but really only for people in the higher SMV ratings. For average and below average, little has changed except that marriage less likely to be an option.
Yes because1) the overall population is much higher than it was 10-20 years ago2). Milennials aren't having as much sex as past generations and getting maried later. In regards to sex, technology likely has a huge factor on socializing and getting needs met in other ways I guess
I'm unsure. I don't know enaugh people to tell. On one hand there's more social media for dating, a hookup culture and so... but on the other hand depression and social anxiety are very common nowadays and people isolating themselves like a hikikomori is more frequent that we think. So not 100% sure. But it could be possible.
Yes, but people are also getting married and start dating later than usual as well.
Every guy I meet is not a virgin unless they are lying. But I've only met one guy who admitted to being a virgin. He also revealed that he's waiting for marriage for religious reasons which shocked me. But I respected his self control and decision. I am also waiting so it was finally nice to find a guy who isn't trying to slut it up lol. But for the most part, whenever I meet a guy and eventually have the sex talk with them, it's always me revealing that I want to wait and them saying they aren't a virgin.
@MrOracle made a great point. There is a percentage of the population being more promiscuous than ever before but I think a slightly larger percentage is having less sex or none at all. And statistics seem to suggest this is the case. Now my personal theory is that longer work hours, the internet and the intimidation and fear that you we may meet someone who is a whore scares us off. Men and women aloke are apparently having less sex overall, even though feminism is all the rage. So I think we are too tired, too busy and too traumatized by the world around us and people in it that sex just isn't as common.
Yes. For once the new generation generally has less sex and studies have proven it.And secondly because of the hedonistic lifestyle many people have adopted. Instead of creating monogamous families, sex has been turned into something that is purely for physical pleasure. As a result of a lack of commitment, women will strive even moreso for men that are a shelf above them, because without commitment these men are now willing to pump and dump. This naturally leaves out more low-quality men who prior could at the very least get a women with the promise of commitment.
I would add adult virgin MALES , rather than females. Numerous factors at work , the deliberate & toxic " neutering " of both genders , the socially engineered rise of the effete , wussy , " soy boy " and the masculine ( and often man hating !! ) " Strong Independent Womyn TM " derailing gender polarity... feminine and masculine are supposed to attract the other , whereas neuter + neuter = attracting nothing. Also too much reliance on tech , which will mean no proper social skills ( which will affect males much more , a woman can always get a man without much difficulty ) So , yes I believe we are also entering a new age of puritanism and gender separation... all by stealth.
I don't know the answer but my best guess would be that the number has increased. The digital age and reliance on texting, PMs, etc. has created a number of people who have never developed any social confidence or skills. Many of the younger generation avoid making actual phone calls and talking to the opposite sex. It is difficult to develop sexual relationships if you are afraid to talk to the opposite sex.
Yeah. People were having sex younger on average and fewer people 20+ were celibate not by choice back then. The shift to online dating and socialization has been awesome for some but left a growing group with a lack of real life social skills and opportunity to meet others if they’re not “hot” in a photo.
No, idea but it was just over 10 years since I lost my cherry, so not sure what category I fall under, probably the awkward/slightly uncomfortable youth I was when it happened, which had no clue to what was happening in the wider world, so essentially nothings changed lol
Yes, absolutely. People these days simply aren't having sex. An NPR study claimed that 25% of millennials haven't had sex within the last year, the number is probably higher than that, actually. Kind of embarrassing to admit that you aren't having sex.
I feel like it mostly definitely depends on the type of person you are, like nowadays there's a lot more online sexual people who haven't done much in person and since they can get satisfied sexually online maybe they dont have such a need to do it in person?
10 or 20 years ago i'm not sure about. But if you go back 100 years i'd say absolutely. And you have to blame the media and pop culture. I mean it was said 100 years ago most people never went more than 50 miles from home which limited your options to 50 miles Nowadays the world is globalized. It's the illusion that you can have anything you want and i think it leaves people thinking there's always something better out there.
Yes, because:1. Marriages appear to happen later in age and some people have sex after marriage only2. Subculture movements like hippies, punks, heavy rocker/metal etc are not so strong3. More information about consequences and easier to have your own opinion4. More population in muslim and traditional attitude Asian countries
Yes there is i made that choice when i was age 35i want wait to i meet a woman who we both canshare to give each other our hearts, love, caring etc.
It's a 50/50 cause yeah we might be cautious but with a but a little out going on some stuff in the subject. Yet back then that was the move to experience yet some tend to back off due to beliefs and other ideas like wars.
Today's society is breeding pussies. You say hi to the wrong girl, she'll try to charge you with sexual harassment.
Or you could get shot and killed, like what's happened in my country.
I think the ratio does not change much. But the population has increased in the US by 17%.. So there's more.
There are probably more adults not having sex (either voluntarily or involuntarily), but I doubt that there are more adult virgins.
A lot of young people dont have their own house therefore they dont have a place of their own to have sex.
Yeah, in part due to income instability for a lot of young males.
I feel like people are more progressive then back then
i dont know but i already had more then one ex boyfriend.
Lifespan is longer, less need to find a partner earlier.
technology has taken over eliminating the need for human contact
No because 20 years ago virginity before marriage was the standard
I don’t think so. I think it’s made more of a big deal now.
I do not know anyone in real life who is a virgin lol
Seems like they are on the rise, Reddit is gold mine for these sorts of people
I think there is I think more people are choosing to wait until marriage to have sex
Could be. But I wouldn't be surprised if there were less.
I think it's more obvious who is and who isn't a virgin nowadays, but I don't think the number has gone up or down.
Probably. People are shyer and technology makes it worse
Hell no! Tinder hookups and female depravity is like breathing to women now.
I think we are seeing it more as acceptable.
That's a good point.
I think so because...
How insightful of you.
I must agree: how insightful of me
No idea my darling hopefully there is
for men definitely. Not for women though.
I'm almost sure it's not like that in my country.
Minecraft doesn't make you sleep on the couch 😌
Yes there definitely is
Yeah it seems like it at least here on gag
Maybe they aren’t meeting people in real life as much or all the disease out there is scaring people too
