There are a lot of differences between the generations. Whatsapp or Snapchat? Facebook or Instagram? Crippling student loan debt or even bigger crippling student loan debt? But one difference that you may not have thought of is our sex and masturbation habits. The 2019 SKYN Condoms Sex & Intimacy Survey asked 2,000 Gen Z adults, aged 18 to 22, and millennials, aged 23 to 38, in the US and Canada about their sex and masturbation habits and preferences. And there was a lot of information.
It's full of all sorts of juicy tidbits — like the fact that the average responder masturbates three times a week or that 50 percent of people have used DMs on social media for sexting purpose, meaning that sliding into the DMs is very much a reality. But one of the most interesting things about the survey was SKYN Condoms looked at the differences between millennials and Generation Z respondents — and there were some big differences. “Gen Z adults are fast becoming the majority of our customer base,” Jeyan Heper, Chief Executive Officer of LifeStyles Healthcare, said in a press release. “This year’s survey has unveiled key learnings surrounding the sexual preferences, trends and desires of this growing demographic. These insights will ultimately serve to further drive innovation and help us continue creating products that heighten intimacy and promote better sexual experiences for every generation.”
