Survey Says More Millennials Spicing Up Their Sex Life During Quarantine
A recent study by OnePoll surveyed 2000 adults: 1,000 baby boomers and 1,000 millennials to learn more about their sex life in the time of COVID-19. Forty-two percent of millennials reported actively wanting to spice up their sex life during this time, though based on the survey responses, many more than that are actually trying new things in the bedroom.
According to the survey, the average millennial currently has sex twice as often as baby boomers. Since quarantine and social distancing began in March, two-thirds of millennials say their sex life has changed significantly.
Over half of millennials have brought up a kink they’re curious about to their partner, and of those, 45 percent actually tried it. Forty-three percent of millennials have used sex toys since March, and 37 percent have used food during sex — think whipped cream and chocolate syrup. One potential reason for the change? About 46 percent of millennials say they’re spending more time with their partner than ever before.
Single millennials aren’t completely left out of the fun. Nearly 80 percent reported going on at least one virtual date since March 2020. No reports on how much masturbation they’ve engaged, though it’s likely higher than before March, as well.
