Study: Young Men Prefer Playing Video Games Over Casual Sex

For women, the biggest factor explaining the decline in their casual sex lives was drinking

If you think young men prioritize sex the most over other pleasurable pastimes then you might be wrong as new research has shown that they can give up on sex to play video games. The findings, which included 2,000 young men and women, indicate that the proportion who say they have not had a non-romantic sexual encounter in the past year has risen from 11.7 percent to 15.2 percent.

For men aged 18 to 24, it rose from 18.9 percent to 30.9 percent, The Telegraph reported on Monday. For women, the biggest factor explaining the decline in their casual sex lives was drinking. For the men, however, of the key aspects of their lives which appeared to be having an effect, the largest was drinking followed by gaming.

Ten percent were accounted for by the fact that they were still living with their parents, the study, conducted by researchers from the State University of New York and Rutgers University, reported. Young people also remaining dependent on their families, both financially and in terms of living at home, might be a factor, according to Simon Forrest, Professor at the Institute for Health and Society at Newcastle University.

“I think this clearly has an impact on the kinds of relationships young people form because that lack of independence can be quite important,” he said. The researcher also pointed to what he calls the ‘pornographisation’ of society, in which the greater access to explicit pornography online might be affecting sexual relationships. (IANS/SP)
