Does More Porn Mean Less Sex?

Research in the Archives of Sexual Behavior brings surprising news: younger Millennials—those below age 26—engage in less sex than their counterparts among Gen-Xers and Baby Boomers, with fewer partners and less frequent instances of intimacy.

Among high school students, a substantial majority have no sexual experience, while 25 years ago only a minority remained abstinent. This is good news when it comes to fewer instances of sexually transmitted diseases, unwanted pregnancies, and abortions.

But scientists say other aspects of the change aren’t so encouraging. Young people today spend considerable time on social media, leaving less chance for face-to-face contact, let alone sexual relations. And a disturbingly high percentage of young people who avoid sex altogether substitute video games or pornography. The explicit online content (in particular) is leaving them handicapped when it comes to constructing future marriages, or other lasting, intimate connections with real people that nearly all Americans say they want and need.

    Today, you asked why Trump brought up the Meghan Kelly blood thing. I live in Ohio and every single evening, Hilliary plays Trump quotes about shooting someone on 5th Ave, the Meghan Kelly quote and a quote about some guy who couldn't renember what he said. Then at the bottom you read "Our children are watching" and something about is this the guy you want for President. (As IF she would be such a great person for our children. That is the ONLY ad she plays, Every Night. She says nothing except at the start, "I'm Hillary Clinton and I approved this message." SICKENING.

      Hillary is a female cuckold with rumors she is a lesbian and Bill is a way to power and wealth.

        She has also been called a murderer, a drug dealer, a nymphomaniac, a racist, a child molester and an alien. Much of this was said on Medved's show.

        Don't believe everything you hear on FOX news and AM radio.

      How is this sickening? She is letting Trump speak for himself. What else needs to be said? By the way, I'm sure you realize that different ads are played or not played in different states.

    Incidentally, isn't it interesting how powerful women are often taken down in terms of sexual rumor? Poor Marie Antoinette wasnt the first or the last to be accused of sexual horrors. By the way, I also heard once that Hillary practiced bestiality. I'm sure you are both smart enough not to take that as fact, no?:
