People Have Been Having Less Sex
Researchers have become alarmed at declines in sexual activity around the world, from Japan to Europe to Australia. A recent study evaluating what is happening in the U.S. has added to the pile of evidence, showing declines from 2009 to 2018 in all forms of partnered sexual activity, including penile-vaginal intercourse, anal sex and partnered masturbation. The findings show that adolescents report less solo masturbation as well.
Between 2008 and 2018, the percentage of Americans between the ages of 18 to 29 not having sex doubled.
In 2021 findings reported by CNN, nearly 26% of adults said they didn't have sex once over the past 12 months, according to the General Social Survey.
Human sexual activity affects cognitive function, health, happiness and overall quality of life—and, yes, there is also the matter of reproduction.
Global Fertility Rate
Is this why so many people are so angry and crazy all the time? But, seriously, the world already faces an alarming drop in the fertility rate. Do you think this will get worse? What other effects will it have for society? What's your take?
Yes, sex is important as eating and sleeping.
The power to be aim is to depopulation the world. It's worked from the 1950s to one third of the members of the family today.
Vaccines are other another step of depopulation and separate people of the world. As an unvaxxed person I've been kicked off two dating sites and no place allowed to take them out.
Yes I am, and I am happily married.
However, Castlepaloma concerns about over population and the need to take drastic steps to depopulate the world is unfounded:-
Throughout the ‘Industrialised Nations’ fertility rates and birth rates have been dropping quite dramatically over the past few decades; and although the birth rates are still rising rapidly in the poor nations, there’s plenty of indications to suggest that within the next generation or two that their birth rate will also start to fall naturally.
The average family size in Britain has fallen from 2.4 children per family in the 1970’s to 1.7 children today; hence why we have a shrinking native population in the UK.
Declining fertility will mean the world's population will fall: https://youtu.be/4s7sW5gXvws
I think UK birth rate is lower than that because India has the highest birth rate in the world with 2.4. The greatest reason of population explosion is because the average life span is age 72 and 60 third world countries are doubling the US economy growth. The baby boomers used vaccines to depopulate when I was a kid from 5.50 to 1.8 in Canada. It's why its the most immigrated country in the world. The tries the same vaccination on our baby boomers as they are using in Africa to depopulated them. That is why they refuse Vaccination.
No, as I stated above, the current birth rate in the UK is 1.7 children per family (and declining): For a stable and sustainable population you need around 2 children per family.
As your video link shows, the UK is not unique in having a low birth rate and declining population; it’s a problem/issue that’s endemic across the world; and for the reason stated in your video. The declining birth rate has nothing whatsoever to do with vaccinations (that’s, as an anti-vaxer, is just misinformation on your part):
• Back in 1851 the birth rate in Canada was 6.56 children per family, but then child mortality was much higher.
• In the past century, the birth rate reached its peak in Canada in 1959 at 3.94 children per family.
• In 1971 the birth rate in Canada had fallen to just 2.1 children per family, and has continued to steadily decline since, so that -
• Currently, in Canada, the birth rate is just 1.61 children per family.
Just a short speech on sex
It gives me great pleasure
Sex it a great part of population. The governments and religion plays a huge roll in the freedom or suppression of sex..
Baby boomer started in 1946 0f a population 0f 12 million today is 38,278,986 . I should had said since baby boomer the Canadian members of the family grew more than tripled here in Canada. I remember a ton of different vaccines when I was a kid, today not so much, until covid. Not putting blinders on, over generally facts, Especially when my sex life and many other are effected on what the Governments gives out on covid sexual manual . On telling us what and how we must perform sex in our private bedrooms , I'm Not going to do triple masks and butt plugs for covid farts.
Falling fertility rates mean nearly every country could have shrinking populations by the end of the century.
And 23 nations - including Spain and Japan - are expected to see their populations halve by 2100.
My take? What the hell, Islandmom asking if we are having SEX!
I just had to click. And then, you capped the day with your question: "Is this why so many people are so angry and crazy all the time? "
Coming from `sweet little 'ol you' that was priceless. ;-)
(You didnt answer. )
But, you know is true. Ha!
Research shows that having regular sex can result in certain health benefits, including improved immune system function, reduced blood pressure, lower stress levels, and less risk of cardiovascular events. Learn more about the health benefits of sex here.
People may get some of the physiological benefits of sex — such as reduced stress — from masturbation.
In males, prostate health can benefit from frequent ejaculation, whether this is with another person or alone. A 2016 study found that men who ejaculated at least 21 times per month had a lower risk of prostate cancer compared with those who ejaculated 4–7 times per month.
For females, frequent sexual activity — again, either with a partner or solo — can strengthen the pelvic floor muscles that support the bladder, improving bladder function and reducing incontinence and leakage.
Thanks for sharing. I think that is a little more than I want to know.
But, do you think the fertility rate will get worse? I was kinda joking with hubby, questioning if will we (human race) become asexual beings in the future? It wont be the Zombie Apocalypse...
Anyway, I suppose that countries with lower fertility rates will become more diverse if they want to exist in the future.
Or as a species, we could end up like the Pandas, lol:-

Perhaps Asimov saw our future and Earth will become another Solaria.
"Is this why so many people are so angry and crazy all the time? "
You are on to something. I mean one's mood is such a big part of sex, is it not? And when one's mind is bogged down with all kinds of crazy, it certainly could put one into a dry spell. Sex can leave one relaxed. It can remove the everyday BS in your mind. Sex releases the feel-good hormones, endorphins and oxytocin feel-good hormones. Stress release all the bad ones...
Oh God, no. I made a thread about something other than Trump/Biden or "Boo-hoo Vaccines Evil"... and here we go again.
I can't help it , I love knowing things. I replace political and religious things with healthy food ,freedom and affordable housing and in a self governing community it takes up my vast majority of time.
Please continue, don't talk about Trump and Biden, it only gives them more power.

It seems to be that there are more and more teenage pregnancies every year. Do you think that teenagers are starting out too soon?

How young is too young to be having sex for teens these days? As a mother of an 18 and 16 year old I'm curious. Do you start in middle school? Freshman year of high school? I was sophmore year of high school and was no where near prepared for what things happened to me,...

It has been a gray area for a long time that in the UK, sex below the age of 16 is illegal and many frown on it. I'll be honest, I lost my virginity at 15, however I am not a criminal, I have lead a community driven life and am a law abiding citizen.In this day and age, children are exposed to sex...
