We’ll admit: the Victorian Era created a long history of not talking about sex, and there’s still a lot of obfuscation when it comes to who’s having sex and at what age, and, importantly, who’s enjoying it.
The below infographic gives an overview of the state of sex in America today. These stats are important for pastors and leaders to understand where the people they’re leading and ministering to are in terms of sex, for couples as they work toward honest and healthy sexual relationship with each other, and for parents to be knowledgeable when it comes to the reality of teenagers and sex today.
Want more? (A lot more?) These stats are taken from the 358-page Real Marriage Research Brief, which you can download here with your (free) Mars Hill Global account.
For a pastoral word on this topic, watch Pastor Mark’s sermon from this week, “Sex: God, Gross, or Gift?”
