Americans Are Having Less Sex

Sadly, we all seem to be having much less sex than we used to.

It's not a topic any of us want to think about (or even read about!) but a study collected over the course of roughly 15 years has shown that Americans are, sadly, having much less sex.

A 15 year Study Reveals ...

Data for the study was collected between 1989 and 2014, and the outcome was for people of all gender, race, marriage status and the region in which they live. The outcome is published in the journal Archives of Sexual Behavior.

Facts and Figures

  • Per year, adults from the age of 25 and above had about 1.18 times less sex.
  • From the early 1990s into the early 2000s, Americans generally had sex from about 60 to 65 times a year.
  • People in their 20s on average have sex 80 times per year.
  • People in their 60s do it about 20 times per year.
  • The largest percentage decrease in sex was seen by people in their 50s, couples with young children, and people who do not watch porn.
  • Married couples in general have sex more often than single people, but even those numbers are declining: from 67 times per year in 1989 to 56 times a year in 2014.
  • There is one group though that still seems to go strong or even have more sex: people over 70. They had sex nearly 11 times during 2014 while the average in 1989 was 9.6 times.
  • From the 26,600 Americans who participated in the research, the majority indicated to be heterosexual.

But Why Less Sex?

According to the researchers, reasons for having less sex can be that more people are staying single or are single again, and that there are far more options for different kinds of pleasure, such as social media, watching series on Netflix of playing video games.

A good suggestion might be to send paying municipal workers home to do it, like a minister in Sweden suggested.

What is your "average" and do you spice up your sex life when needed?
