Young Australian men want less sex, survey shows

Although teenage males wanting to have sexual relationships with coeds is a theme in many movies, the real-life truth may be that young men are actually satisfied, if not over satisfied, with the amount of sex that they are having. A recent article published by Reuters Health indicates that among Australian men between the ages of 16 and 64, those who are younger are the most likely to want less sex.

The news provider cited a study, which found that 12 percent of young men between the ages of 16 and 24 wanted to have less sex, which was surprising seeing as this response was less prevalent among the older age demographic.

"It may well be that they are being overwhelmed by girls of much the same age who are madly in love and very keen. It also takes men of that age about a year or longer to commit to a relationship," Juliet Richters, associate professor in sexual health at the University of New South Wales, told the news source.

Moreover, the news source reported that contrary to the popular belief that adolescent boys can't get enough female interaction, only 33 percent of 16 to 24 year-old males indicated that they wanted to have more sex.
