After a Washington Post article came out showing a decline in how much sex the kids are having, there’s been mad pontification on just why the drought is happening. Could be porn, video games, fear, Instagram, mean girls, #MeToo. Everyone on Twitter has a take. I don’t have some great understanding as to why the kids aren’t screwing, in fact I don’t understand it at all, but what I do have is a defense of sex, and reasons why millennials should really try having it.

There are loads of good things about sex, and they far outweigh the bad ones. Getting off is great, but it’s not even the best part. Intimacy with another person, a person who you care about, who cares about you, ideally a person who you love, and who loves you, a person who is kind to you, who you are kind too, can make you feel like you really matter to someone who matters to you, and there’s no better feeling in the world.
