We’re all having WAY less sex and apparently, we can blame it on this

According to research in the US, millennials are having way less sex than previous generations.

And now, a sex therapist based in the UK has blamed one thing for it; porn.

Peter Saddington told Glamour that men now think they know everything when it comes to antics in the bedroom, and we don't "fumble" around like we used to.

"Most guys don’t take long to become aroused or to ejaculate, so the sex in porn is vigorous, aggressive, quick.

“In times past, we learned about sex by fumbling. Now, he’s seen things that make him feel like he knows what to do," Peter explained.

"It’s why, on the first time, he expects anal sex. There’s no slowly working up to things because porn also portrays that women want it fast. Women in porn aren’t saying, “ooh, it’s nice if you slow down” – they encourage the total opposite.”

Peter also explained how he thinks mental health can be a factor too.

"For women, depression likely leads to a loss of sexual desire. For men, loss of desire can be there.

"But if he’s withdrawing from everyday life, not wanting to work or feeling angry or upset, he might want to be more sexual because it’s a way of connecting.”

Do you think he's right?
