The raunchy sex game young people really want to do, but hardly any are trying

Popular Articles

Young people, millennials, are often talked about as 'boring' by older generations.

Millennials can't do DIY, fix cars or buy houses. And the latest cause of snowflakeyness? Young adults are now threesome-averse.

Not only that, apparently they're interested in it and think the idea exciting, but they don't get stuck in. At least that's according to a new report.

And although sexuality as a topic have become more common and open, with social liberation a true and just cause, research shows that young people are decreasingly interested in actually having sex.

And that applies to threesomes. The study, by the University of New Brunswick, even found that openness might be tempered by same-sex stigma. Experimentation is apparently influenced by fears of man-on-man, for example.

For the research , the university asked college-age students whether they'd be open to having a threesome. Many expressed keenness at the proposition, but wouldn't actively seek them out. Millennials, so passive.

Women differed to men, who were twice as likely to be hot on the idea, but would rather have a combination of one man, two women.

The University of New Brunswick study, conducted by psychologists Dr Ashley Thompson and Dr E Sandra Byers, surveyed 300 straight Canadian undergraduate students.

"We have greater access to porn than ever before, so we see more sexual acts and behaviors, which increases interest. I speculate the same is true for threesomes and multiples," Dr Thompson said.

"I was motivated just from hearing friends and students talking colloquially about threesomes and about situations where they were more or less appealing, and with whom".

Of the women who said they would try a threesome if given the opportunity, the combination of partners was less rigid – men and women played not such a prime role. Which is different to men, who only wanted to girls.

Despite all this, threesomes simply aren't happening. In the study, there's no record of 'threesome rates' before now, but the belief is that they used to be far more popular.
