THIS just in from Reuters:

"Americans in their 20s, dubbed 'Generation X' because of their indefinability, are not happy with their sex lives, according to a magazine survey released Monday.

"The survey of 2,500 respondents, conducted by Details and Mademoiselle magazines, also found that two-thirds of men have changed their sexual behavior because of AIDS, but that only 37 percent of women have done so.

"The survey found that 63 percent of men and 50 percent of women are having sex less often than they want to.

"They also said they were not that happy with the sex they were having. The survey said that 43 percent of men said they were dissatisfied and one-third of women said they rarely or never have orgasms during sex.

"While most believe they should be using condoms, usage is still not universal. Thirty-nine percent of women and 27 percent of men said they have never used condoms during sex.

"Marriage remains a popular concept among the new generation. The survey found that 81 percent of the women and 56 percent of the men believe that marriage is 'the ultimate expression of love.' And a majority of both sexes say they are in a monogamous relationship."

Who said youth was wasted on the young?
