The Current Sex Recession Is Making ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin’ Plot All Too Real

Our economy isn’t the only thing struggling to avoid a recession right now; so are your genitals. On the issue of sex, Gen Z is reportedly having less of it compared to previous generations, which, forgive us, seems rather pathetic given all of the potential at our fingertips (and the ungodly amount of zombies walking around on their phones). Even more interesting, young people, as a whole, are waiting longer to fire up their (embarrassing) sex lives. As if waiting until after puberty wasn’t bad enough, this appears to be a choice, rather than punishment. That got us wondering: Is the plot of The 40-Year-Old-Virgin quickly going from a ridiculous, ‘oh that’ll never be a thing’ scenario to very much being a thing? If that’s the case, Gen Z is catapulting towards a truly terrifying sex recession and we’ve got the stats to prove it. If you ever feared that robots, namely sex robots, would overrun, it seems like kids not being interested in the mystery between their legs could be a very legitimate start to the end. What do you think about all that? We just killed your erection, didn’t we? Read on and see the scariness for yourself.
