We've gone from a slutty summer to a flaccid fall.

According to a study published by Match today, 81 percent of single men said sex is now less important than it was for them in pre-pandemic times.

The jaw-dropping stat on lackluster libidos is thanks to a "perfect storm" of biological and societal reasons brought on by COVID, according to Match's chief scientific advisers and sex researchers Helen Fisher, Ph.D., and Justin Garcia, Ph.D.

"You can't shut a planet and expect people's physiology to remain the same," Fisher told The Post. "We all suffered, dopamine plummeted, testosterone plummeted, sex is less important.

"The more sex you have, the more you want. The less sex you have, the less you want. These singles were having less sex and were under extreme stress, the two together dampened the importance of sex in their lives," she added.

It's not to say that the horizontal hokey pokey is no longer on the minds of single men, but that it's taken a back seat to newfound priorities in both relationships and love, Garcia explained.

"It's most striking in men that they're taking a moment to value relationships and relationship context of intimate encounters more. We see the rates of casual sex are down, only 11 percent of singles want to date casually," he said. "More people are back to the 'three date rule' and want to go on multiple dates before first making out or having intercourse."

That’s because many men are now experiencing post-traumatic growth from COVID and are focusing toward “prioritizing well being” along with furthering emotional maturity, Fisher said.

“Singles are growing up, they’re looking for long-term stability in a partnership, they’re going to take their time to find it and men are leading the way.”

Much of that has come from men becoming more well-rounded, according to the research. The study found that 72 percent of Gen Z and 69 percent of millennials began taking up new hobbies during the pandemic, while 69 percent of Gen Z boasted that they made significant career strides.

Plus, men are “better at relaxing, they’re getting more sleep, they’re gaining self-confidence,” said Fisher. “They really are finding other avenues — besides sex — for intellectual growth.”

This newfound dating culture — one which sees men desiring more wholesome connections with both themselves and their partners — gives the sexperts hope.

“What we’re seeing is a global situation here,” Fisher said. “It may well lead to a few decades of relative family stability and happy marriages.”

I wonder if there's an environmental factor too as mentioned by Dr Swan on Rogan when she was talking about phthalates in plastic.

Is MGTOW en masse.

Instead of pining over the shrinking pool of non obese, non committed (either relationship or mental institution), non over self valued thots, they are saying “fuck it”.

I will say that is one of the ways you find quality rather then quantity.

When I went out slut hunting, I caught sluts. When I wasn’t looking for anything, I crossed paths with my forever person.

So what will it be, tentacle porn or vodka?

And never mind that online dating has also royally fucked expectations for many people. It's difficult for an average guy to date average women. That is very disruptive.

I know a fair number of people my age who have come to this conclusion. One night stands are less appealing when a crazy chick can turn it into 20 years of payments from you on a whim.

Good.

Women have used their vaginas as a trap for centuries. Feminists want the world to treat them as equal, yet nearly every penalty is heavier on women OT swayed towards women.

Some guys have learned that sex once a month as a single guy is better than sex once a month as a married guy. Maybe that attitude will help take the P off the pedestal.

You poor fucking youngsters.

I was in my 20s when AIDS hit, stationed in the BRD, and chasing the pussy dried up (for me personally), as I was already committed to a voluptuous blonde.
The barracks were full of harddick punks who either played Russian Roulette or beat off to porn, or each other.  Fuck, I don't know or care.

Shit happens.   Learn to live with it.  Or, find you a good piece of tail that has the same values as you.

BTW:  That blonde is still with me.  WE BOTH have the same values.  Retired, loving life and living the dream.

BOOMERS will always be smarter, meaner and won't give a fuck about you Millennial assholes.

And for the ones that aren’t fat, half or more think they are a 9-10, when they are at best a solid 6-7 but think the top 1% of men would bother dating them.

Universe 25/behavioral sink FTW!

Other males, a group Calhoun termed “the beautiful ones,” never sought sex and never fought—they just ate, slept, and groomed, wrapped in narcissistic introspection.

Somehow I feel like the fucking flux of frequency of fornication is less of a paradigm shattering disruption in the cosmos than one would think as it's presented in this article. It sounds like someone on Madison Avenue that depends on using small head psychology to sell whiskey and cars is worried.

The details matter. Why it’s happening is really important.
