Think Millennials Are the ‘Hookup Generation?’ You’re Wrong, Says FAU Sex Study

MillenialsDating.jpg

Young American adults aren’t doing it as often as you’d think. Although Americans are now strikingly more accepting of premarital sex, a new study reveals that more Millennials, born in the 1990s in particular, are nevertheless forgoing sex during young adulthood. This study really contradicts the widespread notion that Millennials are the “hookup” generation, which is popularized by dating apps like “Tinder,” suggesting that they are just looking for quick relationships and frequent casual sex.

Study Finds Couples’ Division of Paid and Unpaid Labor Linked to Risk of Divorce

A new study suggests that financial factors, including couples’ overall resources and wives’ ability to support themselves in the event of a divorce, are not predictive of whether marriages last. Rather, it is couples’ division of labor — paid and unpaid — that is associated with the risk of divorce.

New Research Shows Men More Aggressive on Dating Sites, Women More Self-Conscious

Using data collected from Baihe, one of the largest dating websites in China, researchers from Binghamton University, University of Massachusetts Lowell and Northeastern University developed a reciprocal recommendation system that better matches users who are mutually interested in and likely to communicate with each other. The data revealed behavioral differences between male and female users when it comes to contacting potential partners. In particular, males tend to be focused on their own interests and be oblivious toward their attractiveness to potential dates, while females are more conscious of their own attractiveness.

Metabolic Syndrome Linked to Sexual Dysfunction in Older Women

Understanding the effects of age and disease on sexual wellbeing is crucial as sexual health is increasingly associated with vitality. In a new study published in The American Journal of Medicine, researchers looked at the role metabolic syndrome and cardiovascular disease play in postmenopausal women's sexual health. They found that metabolic syndrome was strongly associated with decreased sexual activity, desire, and sexual satisfaction and that specific cardiovascular events were linked to reduced rates of sexual activity, but not with sexual desire or satisfaction.

Antidepressants: A Treatment for Bad Marriages?

Psychiatrists nearly always responded with prescriptions for antidepressants when clients complained of bad marriages, according to a new study spanning 20 years at a Midwestern medical center. The assumption that people struggling with their marriages or other domestic issues are suffering from depression is not supported by the way depression is defined medically.
