Sexless men between 18 and 30 are on the rise according to the ''Washington Post'' using data from the U.S. nationally representative ''General Social Survey (GSS)''.<ref>https://www.washingtonpost.com/business/2019/03/29/share-americans-not-having-sex-has-reached-record-high/</ref>
28% of men did not have sex in the past year, a trend that appears to have started around 2000-2005.
This is accompanied by a trend towards later marriage that started a few years earlier.<ref name="ifstud">https://ifstudies.org/blog/male-sexlessness-is-rising-but-not-for-the-reasons-incels-claim</ref><ref>https://www.jsmp.dk/posts/2019-04-31-sexlessness/</ref> and rising rate of young men living with their parents.<ref>https://www.pewsocialtrends.org/2016/05/24/for-first-time-in-modern-era-living-with-parents-edges-out-other-living-arrangements-for-18-to-34-year-olds/</ref> Data from NHANES, NSFG and GSS together suggest around 12% of 22-35 year olds had no sex in the past year (see graph on the right).<ref name="ifstud"></ref>
GSS data also shows that among today's 18 to 34 year olds, 51% have no stable partner, up from 35% in 1986.<ref>https://www.washingtonpost.com/lifestyle/2019/03/21/its-not-just-you-new-data-shows-more-than-half-young-people-america-dont-have-romantic-partner</ref>
