Milenials postpone their first sex: One in eight is still in panic.

Young people in a group of so-called millennials postpone their sexual life - one of eight millennia is still virgin or panic at age 26. This follows from the latest research by University College London as part of The Next Step, which tracks the lives of 16,000 people born in 1989-90 from their 14 years of age.

In previous generations, only about one in twenty was sexually affected by the age of about 26. Among the main reasons, scientists say the generation of millennials grew up in an environment saturated with sexuality, fear of intimacy and pressure from social networks.

The results of the newly published research are also supported by the conclusions of an earlier national study in 2013, which was also carried out by University College London, according to which millenarians enjoy less sex than people at their age ten years ago: for men from the generation of millenarians it is 4,9 times a month for women 4.8 times versus 6.2 times for the previous generation of men and 6.3 times for the previous generation of women.

"Generations of millennials grew in a hypersexual environment. Especially on social networks they are attacking every day with the presentation of beautiful bodies always ready for love games, sex is everywhere, and it is open and open and pornography is very easy to access, in addition to a lot, " explains Adam Durčák ( Especially among young men, the fear is that they will not be able to fulfill the expectations of the generally perceived standards of contemporary sexual life. "In addition, there is a growing fear of intimacy between the two sexes, which can be prevented by young people not being afraid to experiment with their own sexuality and to know their own body," Durčák added.

Fear of commitment and intimacy records virtual relationships

Experts also believe that the social networking of FOMO syndrome ("fear of missing out"), which makes young people constantly online, contributes to the delays in sex life at millennia. Other factors include the pressure of society to study and educate young people, and the fact that millenarians often have problems to accept criticism or adapt to the opinions or needs of others. According to experts, young people from the generation of millenarians often grew up as pampered children whose claims always prevailed. A partnership is difficult for them because they can not retreat and seek compromises.

"The fear of commitment to the fear of an intimate relationship leads to more and more young people escaping from real sexual and emotional experiences and replacing them with virtual relationships. Instead of occasional non-binding sex, the millenarians often enjoy only flirting by phone or chat or sexting, not even counting on having their virtual partner ever "realistically", adds Adam Durčák.
