Americans Are Having Less Sex Than They Used To

“The report did not list causes for the decline. But it cited possible factors including increased access to entertainment and social media, a decline in happiness among people age 30 and over, higher incidence of depression, and use of antidepressants associated with sexual dysfunction.”

I’ll get right to the stats with this one: In the 1990s Americans had sex 62 times per year and now that number has dipped to less than 53 times per year.

Married people saw an even steeper drop from 73 times per year to 55 times per year, which now brings their average to less than that of never-married people.

This Washington Post story breaks down the latest sexual activity stats and I’ll leave it to you to use this information as you see fit. I’m sure your spouse looks forward to hearing about it.
