As people become more aware about sexuality and the importance of intimacy in a relationship, the expectation would be that people might have more sex. But recent studies have painted a different picture with many young people staying away from sex.

A lot of men are put off sex because of the expectation that they may make the first move. Fear of their partner finding them less attractive or struggle to form an emotional connection also affects sex drive.

Meanwhile the study also challenged stereotypes by showing how women and not men are the ones who are put off sex after being with one partner for a long time.
