New Yorkers these days aren’t having much sex

The New York Post reports:
We’re the city that never sleeps­ . . . with anyone.

Big Apple denizens have gone from the digital age back to the Victorian era when it comes to sex, with more adults — even young ones — remaining abstinent, a Post analysis of city Health Department data shows.

Nearly a third of all of the city’s adults said they had not had intercourse or oral sex in a year, according to the latest 2014 statistics.

That was the highest number since 2002, when the department first started keeping public records on the question.

The “Sexless & and City’’ number was even higher — 32.7 percent — among young adults ages 18 to 24, according to the department’s annual Community Health survey.

By comparison, in 2002, 18.4 percent of all city adults said they did not have sex with any partner the previous year. That included 20 percent of young adults ages 18 to 24.
