It turns out we're just a bunch of lying boring prudes. Every song is lying. Every movie is lying. Do you want the truth? According to a new study, young people are now apparently having less sex than ever before.

The Washington Post has reported that the journal Archives of Sexual Behaviour "finds that younger millennials – born in the 1990s – are more than twice as likely to be sexually inactive in their early 20s than the previous generation was, and more likely even than older millennials were at the same age." And research provided from the U.S also detailed that 15 per cent of young adults between the ages of 20 and 24 who were born in the 1990s reported having no sexual partner at all. (We guess Tinder doesn't work after all.)

The trend also seems to be greater for women than for men: 2.3 per cent of women born in the 1960s were sexually inactive, compared to 5.4 per cent of those born in the 1990s. Living at home, wanting 'more intimacy', video games, Netflix, porn and the internet in general are all hinted at maybe being factors.
