Someone pointed out to me, talking about 3rd world countries and population growth, that the greatest practical technology to stop people from having babies was the presence of a TV in the bedroom. The reproductive-age population is now centered around the cable TV generation…

Looking at 25 years from data from 1989-2014, the study found married couples are now doing it less than singles (thanks Tinder!). Coincidentally, people are less likely to be married in the first place. When comparing same age-cohorts, more recent generations are less sexually active, including today’s early-20’s cohort (in spite of raunchy imaging in pop culture).
