About This Quiz
One of the big myths about modern culture is that the kids these days (not literal kids, we mean people aged 18-30) are having a lot more sex with a lot more people than their parents. This isn't statistically true. Millennials - now aged 19-39 and Generation Z (the next group down) are actually rather more conservative than Generation Y and the Baby Boomers. This is for a variety of reasons. A lot of them grew up in homes that saw nasty divorces, and they are a little more careful about relationships. They never had the luxury of existing in a time before AIDS, having come of sexual age entirely after the idea that having sex once really could kill you horribly was engrained in the culture. They work much longer hours than their parents and have more debt and less spending money, meaning that even though it is easier to meet people than ever, having the means and the time is not guaranteed.
Still, the Millennials are having SOME sex, even if they don't live in the orgiastic Bacchanal that the worrywarts decrying "hook-up culture" like to imagine. Thus it's legit to assume that most have had a little ... even if it wasn't very recent.
