    As to the topic of this thread, my own daughter has told me that she's never going to get married or have children. She says she's "asexual," meaning that she doesn't like having sex.
    I pray that your daughter will eventually find a man that she falls deeply in love with and together they enjoy God's institution of marriage like you did with your late husband and I do with my wife.

    You quoted two people who are making points totally outside what your trying to push.

    Yes, I quoted two secular humanists, but my point is this:

    If indeed millennials are having less sex, it's not because they believe that out of wedlock sex is immoral, it's for other reasons (sexual confusion, terrified of STD's/pregnancy, etc.).

    Why is that unfortunate?

    Fear of God and fear of consequences are categorically NOT the same thing. God's "end" is not simply to keep people from engaging in dangerous behaviors (physically speaking) but to change people spiritually. Just because someone avoids sexual activity doesn't mean their morals are good, nor does it mean that they are seeking some higher good - they just don't want to get stung. They can at least see past their own desires...but not much. Certainly not enough to see God's design for human sexuality (which is central to marriage). Otherwise, they would simply stop extra-marital and illicit sex and start getting married (biblically) and enjoying that union for all it's worth. Then one might be able to say that there is at least a recognition of the Divine order.

    EDIT : How many of those millennials would say they abstain "because God said we should"?

    Maybe that's the reason for less sex. Parents being around makes sex awkward.

    The way i understand it, thats generation x - it depends on who you ask though really. Look it up - the dates are all over the map.

    "Around the country, progressive bullies have attacked Christians for daring to put their faith ahead of the pet causes of those who feign compassion while destroying life-giving liberties. What we are seeing is a scorched-earth, take-no-prisoners approach as the wildfire burns across our land. It is not enough that Christians be quiet. Christians must be silenced and punished. Their faith cannot be respected. Legislation that ensures people are free to live and work according to their faith without fear of being punished by government must be stopped and decried as discrimination...There is one key reason that those on the Left must force their beliefs on the rest of us: if they didn't force their craziness on us, we would never embrace it." ~Erick Erickson

    If you answer the question I added in the EDIT portion, there's a starting point for discussion. Unless you want to do away with all distinctions (God and NOT God...right and NOT right), this isn't just a question about what you call something or someone. When someone fears God, they turn from sin (Exodus 20:20, Ecclesiastes 8:12 and Jeremiah 2:19 as examples). Not that they are perfect - not a one of us is - but there is an attitude towards sin that one has who fears God that is absent from one who does not fear God.

    Every one that is proud in heart is an abomination to the Lord: though hand join in hand, he shall not be unpunished.
    By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.

    Proverbs 16:5-6

    On the other hand, when they fear consequences, they simply try to avoid them - not necessarily the act (or even thought) that is at issue.

    Jesus said sin begins in the mind. Show me someone who is afraid of the consequences of sex today - but not one who recognizes God - and I will show you someone unashamed of all the things they think about that are sinful (and lead to sin being realized). The one who fears God does not approach sin that way (indeed, the one afraid only of consequences is not even likely to call it sin to begin with).

    If you assume that the generation which came of age most recently has been hit harder by the culture war upon the family and the entire heterosexual relationship, as well as the toxins in the food, water and air and the estrogen mimickers, then it would make sense that this is the generation whose heterosexual relationship was most diminished, both psychologically and physically.

    Yet "Cohabitation and out of wedlock sex produces less sex than a society dominated by monogamous relationships."

    While the culture war upon the heterosexual relationship came out of the Marxist Left, the feminist movement and the lesbian and homosexual movements, that war against the heterosexual relationship took a few years to develop after about 1960-1975 or so.

    Yes, porn is part of the war upon the heterosexual relationship but the point that there has been a war on the heterosexual relationship since about 1970 to 1980 in this culture is missed by church people. It helps to be older to understand this war.
