Why are millennials/Gen Z always horny?

Internet pornography fucked up our sexual thoughts. People were always horny but the specific weird way we are was shaped by spending our formative years engrossed on a platform where any and every kind of pornography is available right at the tips of our fingers.

We grew up with internet porn (well, I didn't because we only had one computer and a dad who was pretty savvy about search history investigations, though I had him outsmarted by age 15). A lot of stuff is normal for us that really wasn't, even if every generation before gets the itch in their time.

I fundamentally disagree with your premise. I feel that there has never been more entertainment options that has us hooked and distracts us from our primal urges. Didn't The Atlantoc run an article about how millennials were getting less sex than the Baby Boomers?

Reported, don’t be an asshole. I’m at university and if I hadn’t quickly clicked out, I could have been locked out of the internet or worse.
Yeah maybe don't do that. Gotta clear my history now.
It just Google's it lol. Come on. You can get banned from your schools ISP for googling PornHub? You go to a Lutheran uni or something lol? I don't think it even finishes the search right?

Sorry peeps :(

I've been sexually aroused since I was five years old. Doubt I'm an outlier in my generation, let alone in other generations. The internet has just made it easier for noobs and casanovas alike to brag and joke about sexual topics with little consequence.

You've been sexually aroused for all this time? You're supposed to see a Dr after 4 hours so he can tell you "nice".

On the contrary. We're just as horny as previous generations. We're just more open to sexual jokes and talking candidly about sex. This should be celebrated.

That, and the internet amplifies people's habits that in past were unheard of in spite of happening. The hentai avatar who retweets nothing but porn of today, is the person who actually collected porn VHSes and kept the adult industry afloat of yesterday. The adult fanfic writer who talks about the importance of safe, sane, consensual sex of today is the BDSM club head who kept a naughty diary of yesterday. And so on. This is true of everything, not just sexual habits and porn consumption.

A better question would be: Why are other generations so repressed?

Everyone is horny, lol. We just live in a time when it's socially acceptable to admit it, and easy to see what's on people's minds via social media.

Every few years I rediscover this page and it's always just as amusing. In some ways, through the generations, people really do stay the same.

We are a lonely generation... And have easy access to porn to somewhat curb that loneliness.
I think psychologically it actually makes loneliness worse.
Like my great grandmother always used to say, it's better to be lonely with a boner than just plain lonely.

If you're surrounded by hentai and sexy patreon cosplay without getting laid it's impossible not to be.

Because we are? And most of us are stoned and getting stoned sometimes gets you horny because of the strain, and to be fair not many Gen Z people are actually having sex so being horny is a bi product of that.

Tho speaking on that subject.

That's my secret I'm always horny.
And speaking of sexy patreon cosplay, nice avatar

I’m too busy working two jobs to think about BDSM thank you very much
Why don't you use all those work hours to fantasize about leather and chains and a bearded daddy with rough hands that are gonna treat you right, like every other normal functioning adult?

Work smarter, not harder, silly.

What’s wrong with sex? The only reason why it’s taboo is the underlying basis of religions forming society and stuck up people.
Remember kids: every time you wiggle your tongue in someone's bum, Jesus is right there with you, shaking his head about your technique. I mean about your licentious ways.

I thought we were having less sex or some crap?
Horniness doesn't always correlate with sexual activity though. Especially in the age of the internet, where we can "socialize" without leaving our homes.

I mean, look at Japan. Last I heard, birth rates are low and loneliness is a national affliction among the younger generations, while, probably not coincidentally, you can rent different forms of companionship, and porn is wildly popular.
