Amid our rapidly changing attitudes about sex, a seeming contradiction has emerged: Millennials tend to be cool with casual relations -- but they’ve probably had fewer partners than lovers of previous generations, new research suggests.

Jean Twenge, a psychology professor at San Diego State University, analyzed data from a survey of more than 33,000 adults in the U.S. to measure the country's shifting sexual landscape.

Americans in the "Greatest Generation," or those born between roughly 1901 and 1924, slept with an estimated average of three partners during adulthood, according to a study published Tuesday in the Archives of Sexual Behavior. Baby Boomers have picked up the pace, averaging about 11 partners. Generation X has nearly kept up with 10.

And Millennials, generation of Tinder and "I'm just not looking for anything serious right now," can expect an average of just eight.

People don't stop having sex at any particular age, of course. Researchers calculated projections based on historic sexual patterns across generations. To simplify: Twenge's group compared the average number of sexual partners among 25-year-old Boomers to, for example, today's 25-year-olds.

So, why do Millennials appear to be more selective than previous generations? We don't know for sure. One theory: While this generation brought attention to the idea of "friends with benefits," said Twenge, who led the research and wrote Generation Me, they actually may be having "sex within a smaller circle of people," and not doing the serious dating that might actually lead to more partners.

Millennials also tend to become sexually active later than Gen X. Between 2006 and 2008, 11 percent of teenage girls and 14 percent of teenage boys reported having sex before age 15 -- compared to 19 percent and 21 percent in 1995, when Gen Xers would be coming of age, the Guttmacher Institute found.

The reasons that millennials may be delaying sex could be practical, Twenge said. Today's young people are generally aware of risks of sexually transmitted infections and unplanned pregnancies, thanks to sex education and the Internet. Recent CDC data suggest there are more than 110 million total STIs among American men and women.

But millennials seem to be less judgmental about other people's sex lives. Sixty-two percent think there's nothing wrong with sex before marriage, according to Twenge's calculations, and 56 percent have no issue with same-sex relationships.

That may stem from a cultural tendency to embrace individuality, research shows. “They’re more likely to say, “I’m going to do my thing," Twenge said, "and 'you do your thing.'”

Social forces may also shape Millennial attitudes on sex. For starters, fewer twenty-somethings are tying the knot.

Last year, the U.S. marriage rate reached a 93-year low. "With more Americans spending more of their young adulthood unmarried," the researchers wrote, "they have more opportunities to engage in sex with more partners and less reason to disapprove of non-marital sex."

Overall, adult acceptance of premarital sex increased from 42 percent in 2000 to 58 percent in 2012, an all-time high. Approval of same-sex relations, meanwhile, has more than tripled from 13 percent in 1990 to 44 percent in 2012, another all-time high.

There's an important takeaway from these findings: Understanding a generation's bedroom habits can better inform policy discussions about contraception, abortion and sex education.

“In 2015, we don’t have our heads in the sand anymore,” Twenge said. “The majority of Americans now believe there’s nothing wrong with sex before marriage. We shouldn't say, ‘Let’s just teach abstinence,’ because that seems increasingly untenable.”

*This article has been corrected to reflect there are not 110 million Americans with STIs; There are 110 million infections among men and women nationwide.

The drop still makes me wonder if it will go that way with women having too much sexual power.

only millennial men's numbers have gone down while millennial womens have gone up

Mainstream media will always use the cope of kids knowing more about STDs, but really it's more women having sex with fewer and fewer men. Anyone who actually believes all this abundance for women makes sex easier for males is fucking deluded as all hell.

LOL at trying to explain the change as a result of STD awareness.

I've had around 90 sex partners. I can't imagine only having 11 partners in an entire lifetime. wtf

LOL that is just statistics not factoring in that while in the past there was more sexual monogamy and the average person got laid a decent amount.
Now in free sexual marketplace, where women give 80% of sex to 20% of men, there are a large population of male incels that are getting nothing. While Chads and Tyrones get dozens, maybe hundreds.

Amazing coping. This is one of the biggest myths around. The idea that women aren't fucking anyone is bullshit. Society pushes the idea that women are innocent snowflakes until they have a BF, we should all KNOW well enough by now that that's fucking bullshit.

Women have a strong sex drive too and they're NEVER just sitting around waiting for the dick. They ALWAYS have a guy they can call when they want to get fucked.

i'm an 18 year old virgin i cant breath chew or sleep i have constant head aches i'm bullied by my family i'm ugly as fuck and everybody would be happier if i ate a bullet

Women are more empowered and are lying more. These statistics have always been off and it is because both men and women lie. Men lie to make their count seem higher and women lie to make it seem lower. In this case, Chad doesn't even answer these surveys, he is too busy slaying away. And all the sluts are lieing just as they always have been. So we have more incels showing up and filling this shit out, lying about their lay-count too (saying it is 1-2 when it is really zero)

That whole article is now debunked.

Average man lay count for millennial: 0-3 life time
Women lay count (lifetime) 30-40
Chad (200+) but doesn't take survey.

It's no surprise. The 1960s was 1 big LSD fueled orgy. The 1980s was grunge and heroin and cocaine fueled sex parties.

In 2016 everyone is playing Call of Duty or trying to get a college degree in a job market ever increasingly hostile.

I doubt if you are in the top 20% of men you would be desperate enough for the bottom 55% of women considering only 25% of women are attractive

Men have very low standards and will fuck anything. Meanwhile women think they deserve a caliber of man that's far above their LTR looksmatch. It's not unreasonable to expect that a portion of the upper tier men still aren't good enough for these below average women causing the good looking men to drop their standards a bit.

Only 25% of women are attractive? That number is at least 90% for men of prime reproductive age.

Over half the women in USA are fat. Lots of guys fuck fat girls for some reason though.

Studies are hilarious.
Like women give their real figures.
Like men give real figures as well.

There is absolutely NO GOOD reason why, in the 21st century, every person shouldn't have their basic needs met. That means food, shelter, clothing, and transportation for all and, yes, if you are a male, sexual access to attractive females as that is considered a basic need for men as well.

Some strong coping going on in this thread. Most men are getting sex. You only have to look around you, guys of all shapes and sizes with partners going about their lives enjoying themselves.
You guys who can't get any are the dregs of the dregs - the bottom 10% in terms of looks/fitness/access to resources/social skills.
There's always been a bottom 10% - the dead ends of the gene pool whose genetics don't get to cruise any further along the evolutionary highway. Just be glad you live in the modern world where you get welfare/free healthcare, no matter how useless you are to the species. Not even that long ago, you would have been abandoned in the wild at birth to fend for yourselves. These days, if you're lucky enough to have been born in a developed country, at least you will be provided with the basics by society - so you can live solitary lives with an endless wealth of entertainment constantly available - porn, film, video games, comics. You'll be fed and sheltered. Life has never been better for the genetic dead ends that it is today.
Cope on, if you really think that you live in some world ruled by a feminist conspiracy designed stop average men being happy. The average man is perfectly happy, you're just very, very below average.

Throughout history, only 40% of men go to reproduce compared to 80% of women. Sure there has always been a bottom 10%, but that doesn't mean every guy got to fuck or got a woman. Maybe in past years where monogamy was more strictly enforced. These days though? Forget it. The internet, online dating, feminism, and social media has made things even worse for men. Omega's example above is actually conservative. The true effects of unrestrained hypergamy are far more dire for men.

The media will make it out like everyone is getting laid and guys will lie and fraud saying that they're getting laid, but evolutionarily that makes no sense. We all know the truth here.

It depends how they define "sexual partner".

"Sexual partner" could mean long-term boyfriends for some women. If a man has a one-night stand with a woman that might not count as a "sexual partner." Just having sex with someone does not make him a "partner." So by this notion, women are having more ONSs with strangers and fewer "sexual partners" (long-term boyfriends).

And people lie. Men are pressured to up their count, especially in this corrupt Western culture. As culture becomes even more Westernized and corrupt men will only face increased pressure to lie.
