Is there some kind of blame culture (poor term I know) against the young I don't know about in the UK? Because it seems like it's a sensitive topic sometimes... and so I'm thinking I may not post more on that subject. I'm just interested in cultural development period, how modern developments affects society. So I wouldn't say my interests are really on young people at all...but that they are the "latest" data we have on the way the needle is moving/bending... it's very interesting, the issue of low birth-rates. I would've never thought it would've been an issue growing up with our access to better health services, controsception, open-discourse about sexuality, less stigma around emotions in general... I do care a bit from a job-related perspective as well, because communications is my field.

I don't think that culture exists here. We have a sense of humor about Millennials, but let's be fair, they're running sh** now. Especially in areas like technology and creative. There's pros and cons to that, of course. But there will always be pros and cons to something In some ways, the gaps between generations has never been smaller, but then we seem so much more disconnected... I just think it's an interesting topic. Even moreso from a mental health perspective even.

At 46 you would be GenX not millenials, the oldest millenials are around 40 right now. There's a bit of colloquial confusion with the term too I think because a lot of people are still referring to teenagers / University age adults as "millenials " when the YOUNGEST millenials right now are around 22.

As a general rule of thumb (for 2018) it's quite "neat" if you do it roughly;

- Under 20 is Generation Z
- age 20 - 40 is Millenials
- 40 - 50 is Generation X
- 50 - 73 is boomers
- 73+ is Silent Generation (quite specific as the start date for boomers is exact; the end of WW2)


That said, us Millenials are a weird generation that really needs to be split in two to be in any way accurate of lifestyle. "youngest" millenials grew up not just with Internet, but with always-on broadband. "oldest" millenials would still have been calling each other on their parents landlines in their teens. I fall in an interesting category of "middle millenials"; childhood with no Internet at all, first dial-up modem when I was about 12, first mobile phone when I was 15. We didn't have broadband until I was 18.

Which means I grew up with no Internet, basic Internet, AND fast Internet.

NO mobile phones, basic texting phones, AND smartphones (by my early 20s).

People 5 years older than me are technically millenials but grew up very GenX style (no Internet or mobile phones). Whereas people 5 years younger than me are also millenials but "grew up fully online". There are some obvious huge differences.

Well the latest figures show sexually transmitted diseases have gone off the chart due to phone apps, people meeting up with strangers, just for sex without using protection.

If the lack of sex leads to less children being born into a world where the state has to pay then that can only be a good thing.

As for me, I’m still a sexual power ranger.

I believe there's potentially a strange inverse correlation; people having less sex, but with more partners.

e.g. people might now have sex only once every week / every two weeks, but with a different person each time (or every few times)... instead of sex 3 times a week, but with the same partner for a number of months at least.

Increase in STI's is related to number of partners, not frequency of sex.

Well yes if you caught three stiís from your wife over a three month period there is a small chance she is playing away.

Oh in true tibb fashions this could be true for a man also playing away

Yes, and the obvious answer is, "it's tech". People have more distractions. And for people in relationships that doesn't even mean they would RATHER do those things than have sex... people just "get caught up" in watching something, or playing some game, or browsing the internet, and before you know it you have to be up for work in 5 hours.

In fact taking sex totally out of the equation; people are getting less sleep than they used to because of tech.
