Career, computers and mobile phones all demand so much energy from men that there is almost nothing left for sex by the time they are 40, according to a study conducted by the University Clinic Hamburg. The results show that Germen men have only one third as much energy for sex today as they did in the 1970s.
The researchers asked 10,000 German men between the ages of 18 and 30 how often they had sex per month. The results were four to ten times for today’s men compared to 18 to 22 times for men in the same age group 30 years ago.
The disparity for older men is even greater. In the 1970s men aged 31 to 40 had sex eight to twelve times a month, compared to three to six times a month for today’s men.
