Millennials are having less sex than their peers in previous generations. But it isn’t, for the most part, because they are embracing Christian sexual morality. Rather, it is largely because their sexual desires (especially for men) are being slaked by pornography. And because their main relationships are often online rather than in the flesh.
Lutheran pastor Hans Fiene, of Lutheran Satire fame, has a provocative article on this phenomenon in The Federalist. He makes the case that pornography and virtual relationships are uniquely crippling emotionally and morally. Whereas the sexual desire that leads to a relationship with a real person and then to marriage creates a whole range of virtues.
