And they may not catch up: Today’s 20-somethings are on track to have less sex in their lifetimes than their predecessors. Blame for the decline is flying in every direction: dating apps, economic pressure, anxiety, estrogen found in plastics, living with parents.
“Name a modern blight, and someone, somewhere, is ready to blame it for messing with the modern libido,” Julian writes.
