“Each generation thinks it invented sex,” science fiction author Robert Heinlein famously claimed.
A corollary to that oft-quoted maxim is each generation assumes the subsequent one is having raucous sexual encounters with lots of attractive, sweaty strangers in unimaginable ways.
However, it is by no means clear that millennials are more restrained in their sexual behavior.
Personally, as a millennial, I think Twenge might be giving us too much credit by mistaking our laziness for individualism.
My generation may simply prefer staying home in sweat pants and red wine—and yes, if we’re so inclined, with a ‘friend with benefits.’ Older generations may think this sounds lame, but we simply don’t care.
It was the first generation in which car seats were mandatory and playgrounds were made safer.
They may continue those attitudes into adulthood,” says Twenge.
Could fellatio and cunnilingus blow (sorry) the numbers off? After all, millennials have come of age increasingly aware of AIDS and other STIs.
Twenge argues that in general, millennials were also raised in an atmosphere of greater caution than previous generations.“This is a generation that was raised very protectively by their parents.She's walking in a fast phase, right in front of you.

You hurry to her, grab her arm and pull her into your grip. A combination of a quiet submissive girl who wants to give you service the way you like it, unscribted, but also a woman who has an intelligent opinion about things and can show you my views.
