A Tough Nut to Crack: Americans are Having Less Sex and Nobody Knows Why

United States (Sputnik) – A new study, published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, polled 26,000 Americans and found that they have sex about 15 percent less in 2010-2014 than they did in 1995-1999, with the biggest decline coming for young couples and married duos.

In January, an interview with marketing consultant Simon Sinek went viral on Facebook. Raising the hackles of millennials everywhere, he branded them “tough to manage, entitled, narcissistic, self-interested [and] unfocused.” You can imagine my delight when my mum sent the video to me: “this might explain why you have so many problems,” she said. Sinek puts the pathologies of Generation Y down to “failed parenting strategies”, the nasty shock of realising Read More

Millennials Struggling to Make Ends Meet, Some Forced to Sell Clothes to Eat

(Sputnik) – New figures show people born after 1983, also known as millennials, are more likely to have borrowed money from friends and family or sold their possessions in order to pay their bills. The survey, conducted by an international broker Norton Finance, revealed that over a third of 18-34 years old have been forced to go without food and heating as salaries have failed to increase, yet the cost of living has. Paul Stringer, managing director of Norton Finance has said that this research gives a glimpse into how millennials are living and the reasons why. “With this piece of research we wanted to take a snapshot of British finances, looking at how each Read More
