How Many People Are Having Sex Right Now?

Sex is a personal thing, and you should never feel pressured to have it. However, it’s important to be aware of the risks involved, including STDs and unintended pregnancy.

One study found that people across all age groups are having sex less and less frequently. But how much sex should you have?

1. The United States

There’s no question that sex is a deeply important part of life. But how much people enjoy it and when they enjoy it varies by age, relationship status, state, and culture. A recent study published in the journal Sexuality & Health revealed some interesting sex trends in America.

First, Americans in their 20s tend to have sex around 80 times per year. That rate drops significantly with age, and by their 60s, most American adults have sex less than 20 times a year.

The study also found that younger teens are having sex less, but the decline may be partially due to increased use of birth control. As a result, the number of premarital sex partners has dropped. Interestingly, this change has not coincided with the popularity of novel forms of contraception such as IUDs and shots.

Another factor that could be influencing the sexless trend is the fact that many young men and women are still living with their parents. This can make it more difficult to bring in new sexual partners, and it may even affect the intensity of their sexual experiences. That being said, it’s important to remember that GSS data is based on nationally representative samples and doesn’t necessarily represent every individual.

2. The United Kingdom

Researchers at the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine used data from three waves of the British National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles, conducted in 1991, 2001, and 2012. They discovered that fewer than half of Britons have sex on average per week. The frequency of sex dropped for most age groups, and the steepest decline was among those aged 25 years and older.

It also turned out that one-in-five women say they rarely or never feel fully satisfied after ordinary sex with their partner. And more than half of men said they wish they could have more sex. The team believes this decline in sex is due to several factors. For example, they suggest that the sheer pace of modern life has led to a reduction in sex. In addition, gender equality may mean that women are less likely to feel obliged to meet their partners’ sexual needs irrespective of their own.

But the team also notes that loneliness in the UK is on the rise, and that people are less able or willing to connect with each other. The British government has even appointed a minister for loneliness. So, what does all this mean for our sexual health? We spoke to people around the country to find out. Read on to discover their thoughts.

4. The Rest of the World

A lot of people around the world are having sex right now. In fact, if you add up all the different times per day that people have intercourse in the world, it comes out to about 22 million times every single day.

In most countries, men and women have a similar number of sexual partners. But the number of partners tends to change over time, with younger people having more sex than older ones. For example, the average American teenager has five to seven sexual partners. That drops to three to six partners for people in their twenties and thirties.

This is largely due to the fact that more young people today are in cohabitating relationships or getting married later in life. Jean Twenge, a professor of psychology at San Diego State University and the author of iGen: Why Today’s Super-Connected Kids Are Less Rebellious, More Tolerant, Less Happy—and Completely Unprepared for Adulthood, says that this trend is a big reason why 20-somethings don’t have as many sex partners as their parents did at their age.

It also explains why Japanese people have the lowest levels of sexual satisfaction in the world—along with their extremely long work hours and sluggish economy. People in those situations are incredibly stressed, which can detract from their enjoyment of sex. Nigerians, on the other hand, report the highest levels of excitement for sex.
