Why sex in America is on the decline

With Tinder, Bumble and countless other dating apps out there, there are a lot of choices for finding Mr. or Mrs. Right Now.

However, it turns out all the choices could be making Americans have less sex, according to a recent study published in Archives of Sexual Behavior.

Apparently, Americans had sex nine times less per year in the early 2000's than the late 90's and this statistic isn't limited to single people. Married couples are having less sex as well.

CNN reports that psychologists have many theories. One is that this is because people are having children later in life and are just more tired. They're also a lot more involved in their kid's lives.

In addition, perhaps people would rather get instant gratification without any physical effort from things such as likes on social media or binging on Netflix.

According to CNN, critics argue that single women may just be pickier and choosing not to deal with the aftermath of sex and opting for self-pleasure instead. After all, technology isn't just for iPhones and self-driving cars.

However, the study didn't define sex which means oral sex and other forms of sensual pleasure may or may not be included.

More research needs to be done, but no word on how that study will be conducted.
