If you think that’s scarce, get ready for what’s coming, as professor David Spiegelhalter predicts, according to this article published on Daily Mail, that we will stop having sex in 2040, only 24 years from now!
The professor at the University of Cambridge has come to this ‘apocaliptic’ conclussion after studying the tendency recorded during the last years on sexual activity, as the stats confirm a progressive drop on sexual encounters. However, we can still revert it.
The way we’ve gone through
During the 1990s, the average sexual intercourse count was 5 times a month, whilst at the end of the 21st Century this number went down to 4 monthy encounters. In 1929, 1 out of 10 married couples had sex every day and 91% of the couples would do it at least once a week according to a study conducted by researcher Katherine Bement Davis.
The increasing amount of singles, the hectic lifestyle and even the economical crisis are the causes of this drop of sexual performance, as we are tired at the end of the day and don’t feel like having some sexy time.
We would like to destroy the myths surrounding mature age sex, as studies point out that 1 out of 4 women aged 55 to 64 has sex at least 4 times a month, whilst 17% ow women adn 39% of men aged 75 to 85 consider themselves sexually active. On the other hand, 25% of young people aged 25 to 34 admits they haven’t get laid in the last 4 weeks.
