Americans have less sex than twenty years ago. At the beginning of this decade, they had per year, on average, seven times less sex compared to the beginning of the nineties.

Researchers from San Diego State University and the Widener University analysed data collected between 1989 and 2014, of 26.600 Americans. The majority of the respondents identified themselves as heterosexual.

From the twenty-fifth year of life has an adult per year, on average, 118 times less sex. Twenty-somethings have an average of eighty times a year sex. Zestigers approximately twenty times per year.

The researchers think that the decline primarily is because more and more people are single by life. On average, they have less sex than those who have a relationship.

The decrease is seen in all age groups, work and education levels, races, regions, and in people with and without children. In the fifties, that is not pornography, but school-age children, was the largest decrease observed.

In the study is not one clear gedragsreden designated for the sexual activity of the American population. “It is possible that it is a deliberate choice of young people,” says, a researcher Ryne Sherman.

It is also possible that people are more likely to be engaged with social media, or streaming services such as Netflix.
