Another 15 years and people will replace having sex with TV shows and games on tablets and phones.
British scientists in the person of David Spiegelhalter from the University of Cambridge warn people against almost extinction. According to statistics, and Spiegelhalter is engaged in it, the number of sexual contacts in married couples for almost 30 years has decreased by 2.5 times!
The scientist conducted research and observations since 1990 and noticed that then couples had sex on average 5 times a month, but after 20 years this number decreased by 40%. The scientist warns that at this rate, by 2030, the country will become completely asexual.
According to Spiegelhalter, it is not the Albion nebula or the ever-gray sky of London that is to blame, but the gadgets and TV series of streaming TV channels. The ability to watch TV shows from mobile devices allows people to comfortably settle in bed and follow the passions of their favorite characters, instead of being given to love joys, he writes in the study.
There are also games and news from social networks. The bed has already ceased to be associated among people with the pleasure of sex, since now in bed you can play your favorite game, chat with friends, cheer for your favorite team and care for the heroes of the series.
Spiegelhalter was especially indignant at "Game of Thrones" - a long series, full of cruel and erotic scenes - what kind of sex after him! The saturation with them in everyday life deprives the British of one of the mysteries of family life, - the statistician is concerned.
True, the warnings and sad predictions of British scientists concern only their compatriots, but foreigners should also listen. Remember how often you go to bed not with your loved one, but with a gadget?
