Are Millennials Really Having Less Sex?

Millennials, What's The Deal?

According to a recent UK study, definitely. It appears that British twentysomethings are banging less than prior generations did — but is that representative of the rest of the world’s millennials too? University College London conducted a National Survey of Sexual Attitudes and Lifestyles (“Natsal”) and found all kinds of fascinating facts about Britain’s sex lives, which are highlighted in this nifty video. One of the more surprising results is the discovery that 16- to 44-year-olds’ sexcapades have decreased steadily throughout the past 20 years. It found that men were having sex an average of 4.9 times per month, and women, 4.8 times per month. This is compared to last decade’s figures of 6.3 and 6.2 times per month, respectively.

With Choupette Emojis, We Can All Speak Karl Lagerfeld

With Choupette Emojis, We Can All Speak Karl Lagerfeld

Karl Lagerfeld’s regal kitten/veritable princess is the perfect way to start or finish any text message conversation. If I could, most of my text message convos with my best friends would be pictures of Choupette. And now, thanks to Karl Lagerfeld’s new emojis app for iPhone and iPad called emotiKarl, you can “Karl-ify” any conversation about black gloves, private jets, or Paris. Or any conversation, really. The best part is that these emojis are FREE! Although I happilly would have paid 99 cents to contribute to the cost of Choupette’s personal maids. [iTunes]

Nipple.io App Keeps Detailed Information About Your Sex Partners

sex app

Lindsay Lohan may keep track of her sexual conquests on paper, but in the 21st century, we can all use an app on our phone. It’s called Nipple.io and it’s a spreadsheet containing detailed information about all of your sex partners. All the fuck-data is collected on the main Nipple.io site (which, by the way, is so riddled with typos — they may speak the language of love, but English is not their first language), which also features a “Tiger Woods Award” for the most active users each week. It looks to me like this will go from beta to bust: not even bros are anal enough (no pun intended) to input every handjob and fingerbang. And unless your list has Heath Ledger and James Franco on it, like Lindsay’s does, who cares? [Nipple.io via Nerve] [Image of a sex app via Shutterstock]

A Shakespeare-To-GIF Translator Is Coming To The Interwebs And I Can’t Contain Myself

A Shakespeare-To-GIF Translator Is Coming To The Interwebs And I Can't Contain Myself

Two graduate students at the MIT Media Lab have created a research site that quantifies the emotional content of GIFs, and they hope that one day soon it will enable them to translate Shakespeare into GIF-speak. Travis Rich and Kevin Hu launched GIFGIF on March 3, and it’s a whole lot of fun. It’s so much fun, in fact, that it’s attracted an average 15,000 users per day so far, who are each asked upon visiting the homepage to choose which of two GIFs better expresses a certain emotion.
