Baby Boomers Are Cheaters & Millennials Are Faithful

Culture critic: Having an Affair Is Going Out of Style

Extramarital sex “is changing before our very eyes,” says Megan McArdle at Bloomberg: “While the overall rate of people reporting extramarital flings is the same, the demographics of the people who report the adultery are changing dramatically.

And not necessarily in the direction you might think.” It’s the baby boomers, who came of age in the Sexual Revolution, not millennials, who are driving the trend.

In fact, younger people are having “markedly less extramarital sex than people in that age group did in the 1990s. But people over the age of 55 are busy making up for their missed action.”

With sex, “the past really is another country, and the future a land unknown.”
