You're not the only one, Americans are having sex less often

There's a big chill in the bedroom across the country a new study found

A new survey found that Americans aren't having as much sex as they used to.

Researchers collected data from the General Social Survey, which surveyed more than 26,000 Americans across the USA since 1989.

Among the study's other findings, generations born later are having sex less often than people born earlier in the 20th century. "For each year of age after the peak in sexual frequency at 25, participants reported having sex 1.18 fewer times per year".

Furthermore, data collected from the General Social Survey (a nationally representative sample of more than 26,000 U.S. adults who were asked about their sexual behavior dating back to 1989) revealed that overall, Americans had sex a total of about nine fewer times per year between 2010 and 2014 than they did between 1995 and 1999.

Patriots could want two first round picks for Jimmy Garoppolo
If two first-round picks is the right price, it's highly unlikely that the Patriots will end up sending Garoppolo packing. In those two games, he completed 42 of 60 passes (70 percent) for 498 yards and four touchdowns with no interceptions.

"Age had a strong effect on sexual frequency: Americans in their 20s had sex an average of about 80 times per year, compared to about 20 times per year for those in their 60s", Dr. Twenge and her colleagues wrote. The frequency of sexual activity among married people was below that of unmarried people, who have sex an average of 59 times a year.

Researchers followed 159 married couples in a variety of industries (education, health care, retail, government, etc.) for two weeks, asking them to complete two short surveys each day. "With less sex and less happiness, it's no wonder that American adults seem deeply dissatisfied these days", Twenge said. The study also showed how people who do not have a couple tend to have sex half of the times than coupled people do.

Specifically, Americans born in the 1980s and 1990s are having less sex than those born in the 1960s and 1970s had at the same age ― despite their reputation for relying on dating apps to set up sexual encounters and preferring hookup culture to traditional courtship.

Millennials it turns out, have fewer sexual partners than the generation before them, and younger people now are having less sex than their parents did at their age. "If that's the case, this decline is actually bigger than what we found".

WWE TLC: Goldberg and Lesnar must stick around
Raw's women's division needs a boost in terms of competition beyond just having Banks and Bayley feud with with Charlotte. The Independent speculates that the WWE could kill two stones with one bird Sunday, possibility setting up the Owens vs.

The authors suggest the trends are likely down to a number of influences. "It's probably some of both", Twenge said in a statement.

Still, Americans haven't uniformly experienced recovery since the recession has ended, and not everyone has recovered psychologically and emotionally from the 2008 fallout.

People don't feel comfortable committing to someone during hardships.

"When there's rough economic times, marriage rates go down", Eric Klinenberg, co-author of Aziz Ansari's book Modern Romance: An Investigation, told The Washington Post. While she and her team describe a decidedly unsexy situation in their report, the numbers don't indicate whether Americans will want to get down with each other any more often, any time soon. One of them is greater access to entertainment and social media.

Yellen Signals March Rate Hike and Faster Pace of Future Increases
Earlier in the week, Robert Kaplan, head of the Dallas Fed, said he thought the Fed would likely raise rates "in the near future". Earlier, Richmond Fed president Jeffrey Lacker plugged the need for pre-emptive rate hikes, without explicitly mentioning March.
