A survey shows that people born between 1945 and 1981 had maximum 11 sexual partners. In comparison, current generation have fewer sex partner.
Jean M. Twenge, a researcher at San Deigo State University, along with his colleagues carried out an extensive research. They accumulated data from the General Social Survey. The data included society’s sexual behaviors of last four decades (1973-2012). The primary goal of the study was to figure out what was the attitude of people towards premarital sex. Apart from outlook, experts also looked at what previous generation felt about sex. They focused on ability of a generation to control and handle sexual desires and issues.
In short, they compared sexual emotions of 25 years old in 1972 with 25 years old of 1973.
The outcome of the analysis reveals that 47 percent of people born between 1946 and 1964 support the notion of premarital sex. In comparison, the acceptance rate surged up to 62 percent in the millennial
Additionally, millennials are way more liberal regarding the idea of homosexuality than all the previous generations. More than 56 percent millennial completely approve the idea, whereas the ratio was 26 percent in Boomers.
It seems like contemporary society believe in absolute freedom. They allow everyone to live their lives as they want to, says Jean. M Twenge
The study appears in detail in the Archives of Sexual Behaviors.
