This Is How People's Sex Lives Have Changed Since the 1990s
There's been a sexual revolution, and we didn't even know it

According to a new study, people born between 1993 to 2001 have more experimental sex lives than the generation that came before them.

The joint work by the London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine and University College London found that heterosexual young people are far more open to new ideas in bed.

The study, taken every 10 years, talks to 45,000 participants and takes data from the National Surveys of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles.

The number of men and women who claimed to have had vaginal, oral, and anal sex has doubled in a generation, standing at one in four men and one in five women.

While not accounting for the Jay from Inbetweeners syndrome that surely effected the results, the study shows that there has been a huge shift in sexual attitudes over time.

Dr. Ruth Lewis, lead author of the study, revealed what the results mean for society moving forward.

"By shedding light on when some young people are having sex and what kinds of sex they are having, our study highlights the need for accurate sex and relationships education that provides opportunities to discuss consent and safety in relation to a range of sexual practices.

"This will equip young people with the information and skills they need to maximise their wellbeing from the outset of their sexual lives."
