Millennials might be more accepting than their parents when it comes to premarital sex, but new research says millennials are averaging fewer sexual partners than Generation X.
That comes from a study out of San Diego State University which says millennials average 8.26 sexual partners, down from estimated 10 partners Gen X averages. The numbers were controlled for age.
Lead researcher Jean Twenge theorizes the shift has to do with changing attitudes.
