The condom producer SKYN has conducted a survey on intimacy among 18-38-year-olds in the USA and Canada. The study assigned respondents to the age groups 18-22 (Gen Z) and 23-38 (Millennials). One of the biggest surprises in the results is that the majority of people do not have sex for the first time until they are 18.
The condom manufacturer’s study was carried out by interviewing a total of 2,000 people in the USA and Canada and gives a small insight into the intimate life of Generation Z and Millennials up to 38 years of age.
It is particularly worrying that less than a third of respondents say they always use condoms during sex, 17% rarely use them, 27% claim to never use them. Only 12% of respondents regularly use lubricants during sex. More than half of respondents said they rarely or never use lubricants.
On average, participants in the survey had sex with 12 different partners, claim to have sex nine times a month, to masturbate three times a week and to have sex for an average of 28 minutes. The most popular positions continue to be Doggystyle (57%), Missionary (46%) and Cowgirl (30%). As many as 31% said they had already enjoyed a threesome.
Vibrator undisputedly favorite sextoy; digitalization is entering sex life
The most commonly used sex toys are the vibrator (44%), the dildo (27%) and handcuffs (25%). This is a sobering picture for the sextoy industry but suggests that there is still plenty of room for growth.
The advent of digitization in sex life among Generation Z and Millennials is striking. 50% said they had already been sexting by direct message at least once in their lives. And 37% have filmed their themselves having sex.
