Millennials vs. Gen X: TSOS Podcast, Ep.5!

Are Millennials really the “hookup generation”?

In this week’s episode of The Science of Sex, Joe Pardavila and I talk to Dr. Brooke Wells, an associate professor and director of the PhD program in Human Sexuality at Widener University, about four of her published studies that reveal surprising information about Millennials’ sexual behaviors and attitudes.

Millennials were shown to more more accepting of premarital and same-sex sexual activity, and they were more likely to engage in same-sex sexual behavior, however, contrary to the popular belief that Millennials are a more sexually liberated generation, these studies show that Millennials are actually even less accepting of extramarital sex compared to previous generations. They also, on average, are more likely to have fewer partners or be entirely sexually inactive and have sex fewer times per year than both Baby Boomers (born 1945-1964) and Generation Xers (born 1965-1981).

On this episode’s Foreplay, we discuss some good news for the transgender and gender non-binary folks the new California law recognizing Nonbinary as a third gender option on drivers licenses and birth certificates as well as Playboy’s first transgender playmate.

During Afterglow, we talk about a recent study published by Coventry and Oxford University claiming that having sex at old age can make you more intelligent.

Goes Deeper This week on The Science of Sex, Joe and I went deeper into a rather controversial topic involving the impact that watching pornography can have on marital quality and longevity.

Perry, an assistant professor of sociology and religious studies at the University of Oklahoma, about two of his recent studies, both of which included nationally representative samples of married US adults that were followed over several years. One study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, found married persons who watched porn more often in 2006 reported significantly lower levels of
