David Brooks, "The Self-Reliant Generation": Abstinence in the City

Concluding in his latest New York Times op-ed entitled "The Self-Reliant Generation" that "millennials will be a muted political force, at least in 2016," David Brooks observes en route to this determination:

"They are also having less sex. A study in the Archives of Sexual Behavior projected that millennials would have eight sexual partners by middle age while boomers had 10 or 11. According to a survey from the online dating service Match, 49 percent of people in their 20s have not had sex in the past year."

Too indifferent to vote? No time for sex? I suppose they're preoccupied with texting. Yup, I truly have grown old.


  1. Is there a new medical code for oxytocin deficit disorder?

    Such a deficit would explain all the anger in America...
